I think like most people I am still trying to figure out Klout. As you climb the ladder of Klout by interacting with people on Klout and other social media sites your Klout "score" will increase pretty steadily as long as you do this on a daily basis. But watch out! If you go away on vacation or take a weekend off you will see a dip in your score almost immediately. (At least I have)
When you start using Klout and develop a number you will be able to give and receive Klout, that is another of the ways to get to know Klout members and enhance your score.
Once you get above a certain level (usually around 35 or so) you are eligible for "Perks" or FREE stuff. I got my first FREE Perk in the mail this week. About two weeks ago Klout had notified me that I had a "Perk." It said click here and you will get a pencil from Blackwing. Then I got their Twitter name which is @pencilscom. Now I had never heard of Blackwing or @pencilscom. So I did what I had to do and basically forgot about it for the moment.
Well yesterday my package came - always a nice surprise to receive a package! When I saw it I thought just how big is this pencil??
So I opened the box to find another black box with a note on card stock. I was impressed already. Pencils.com I could tell is a company that goes all the way in doing even the smallest things.
When I opened the black box, in black tissue paper I found a velvet bag that had two Blackwing pencils (very cool BTW), a supply of erasers and a sharpener in a small plastic case.
So to Klout THANK YOU! Pencils.com (Blackwing) Pencils THANK YOU THANK YOU! And I look forward to many more PERKS in the future!
