We are the elves behind Santa’s Klout Perk workshop!
When Klout partners with a company to run a Perk, we are the ones who create the user experience, monitor responses across social networks, coordinate Perk arrival, ensure your satisfaction, answer questions you may have and deliver updates to our clients. As our Perks program grows, so does our influencer base. We love our users and want you to have the best possible experience with Klout Perks. So here are a few quick Perk tips:
1. You have the power!
All Perks are optional. If you participate in a Perk, we do not require that you share or tweet about the experience. You can say you love it, hate it, or say nothing at all. You earned the reward for having influence – the rest is up to you.
We NEVER give away any of your private information to the companies we partner with. For more information check out our Klout and Your Data. Perks are not about giving outside companies our users’ data; they are about our users leveraging their influence to receive unique experiences or products.
2. Receiving Klout Perks
Perks are given out based on score, location and topical influence. As for our international users, Klout only has employees in NY and SF so it is currently hard for us to execute campaigns in other countries but we hope to grow our team out and implement many more international Perks in the near future! Just be sure to update your Klout profile, including your postal code and email address so that you can be eligible for Perks in your area.
You can now add your own topics to your Klout account. If you are missing out on a Perk you really feel is relevant to what you talk about most, you can add the topic to your page, earn enough +K’s from your friends, and then you can redeem the Perk!
We don’t measure your real life influence. For example, we applaud the fact that you volunteer at an animal shelter and have a rescued dog at home, but we have no way of knowing that. If we have a Perk offering a free puppy to pet influencers (which would be totally sweet, but impossible) we will only know your love of animals by what your audience is reacting to online. That is how topics are decided.
We hope these tips help give you a better idea about what Perks are all about. The Account Management team has the best job of all at Klout – sharing great products with amazing influencers! Thank you for your continued support as we make our Perks program even better. We are here to help, so if you ever have any questions or feedback about Perks please let us know by tweeting to us @KloutPerks or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Now get out there and start influencing!
