For people that need to manage their time wisely but want to work on their Klout score we will need to focus on the most important aspects of scoring. This is mostly my opinion but it comes from experience.

Step one: update your LinkedIn Profile to reflect your job Title. This is a one time deal and if you have a good position Klout will give you points for it. Permanent points.

Step two: Join Groups on Facebook that focus on Klout. You want to focus on two aspects. Do they have a daily retweet thread and do they stalk each other.

Step Three: (daily)Tweet early in the morning if you work during the day then add your tweet to the retweet thread. When you get home or during your break retweet everyone that posted. By tweeting early you will get the most retweets, if you had posted in the afternoon a lot of the day tweeps might not get to you. (Make sure to retweet everyone that retweets you otherwise you will run into trouble.) Tip: use hastags, that seems to be the best way for Klout to determine what topics you are influential about.

Step Four: (daily)Stalking, find out who stalks on Facebook. This will skyrocket your score if you stick with it. In the Klout groups ask who stalk and want to be stalked, find out if the tag people in photos and if the mind if you tag them. The basics of stalking are to like other peoples posts, also comment on every post that you can.  You can do this very fast in the afternoon, just have your list of stalkers ready and go down liking their posts, commenting on anything funny or even just a generic comment to get one in, this helps them but they will do it to you in return.

  • Facebook on Blackberry is not so easy, I have the torch and when I want to like a post it opens the post but you can still get quiet a bit of stalking done. Since it opens the post anyways you should just make a comment while there.
