Tutorials – Get Started with Klout

[box color="purple-vibrant" type="square" icon="help"]Tutorials – Get Started with Klout[/box]

Here we are again for a Tutorial Wednesday and we are continuing on with our series on Klout.

Last week we started off with a Klout Overview and this week we are going to step through...

Getting started with Klout.

No fluff.... let's get to it....

get started with Klout

Signing up for Klout is a very streamlined process.

It’s clear that Klout’s creators put a lot of attention into making sure there are no unnecessary steps in the Klout signup process.

Because Klout is a social network based service, you sign up (and sign in) with Klout through an existing social network profile.

There is no option to sign up via email.Then you just give Klout a little bit of information to help them rank you and make you more discoverable.

Here’s a step by step walk through of the Klout setup process.....

Step 1: Choose Twitter or Facebook

Start by choosing whether you want to connect your Klout account with your Twitter profile or your Facebook profile.

  Step 2: Authorize

Authorize whichever account you chose to access your personal data.

  Step 3: Enter Your Name and Email

Enter your real first name and last name, along with your email address. This makes it easier for people to find you on Klout.

  Step 4: Connect More Accounts

If you have more social media accounts, you can connect them in this step. Just click “Connect” next to each account you want to connect, then click “Continue” once you’re finished.

  You’ll have to grant access to each network that you want to use.     Step 5: Choose Topics You’re Influential About

Klout with give you a list of topics they think you might be influential about. If you hover your mouse over any of those topics, the “Add” button will appear. Click the “Add” button to add the topic.

  Step 6: Choose Your Influencers

Who do you follow closely? Who do you see as an authority?

Who would you call an influencer of yours?

Klout will present you with a list of people. Again, select from the list by clicking on them.

  Step 7: Changing Your Description

Your description appears directly under your name, picture and Klout score in your profile.

If you’re connected to a Twitter account, the description will be pulled from your Twitter description. If you’re connected to a Facebook account, this will be blank by default.

  To change your description, go to “Settings” in the upper right corner.     Then fill out the “About” field.     That’s all there is to it! Your Klout profile is setup and ready to go. You’ve got your accounts, your topics, your influencers and your profile all setup. Alrighty.... next Wednesday we will move on to the whole Klout 'score' and how that comes about when we delve into understanding your score and profile. That's it for this week's tutorial, but I'll be back with another '10' list on Friday. Stay coolies till we meet again my friends :) Kym-Robinsons-Blog-Signature           join in the conversation by leaving a comment and if you liked todays post, how about sharing it with your friends? all the buttons are below for your convenience – thanks in advance!
