Today, Klout has released a preview of Klout Experts, a way for people to share their passions and expertise with the world. Klout is now expanding on its recent partnership with Microsoft’s Bing, bringing influencers’ input to the forefront of search results. Now people searching for answers or help to common questions, will be able to find your responses, then look at your Klout Moments to fully understand your prospective, and potentially connect with you on social media for further follow-up conversations.
The CEO of Klout, Joe Fernandez said about the new service:
To achieve our mission of helping everyone realize their influence, I believe it is our duty as a company to do more than just measure influence. Today I am proud to announce the preview release of Klout Experts.
With Klout Experts, our goal is to enable every person to share their passions and expertise with the world. Klout Experts will create a path to not only increasing your Klout Score, but also to helping others by sharing your insights and opinions.
How does Klout Experts work?
During this preview period, Klout Experts has been rolled out on a limited basis. For those selected, when you open Klout you’ll have the opportunity to now share your insights topics you’re most interested and knowledgeable in. So starting today, an initial set of Klout Experts answers will start appearing on Bing. Influencers who take part in Klout Experts will thus have higher visibility in related search results.
Klout went on about the new offering:
Influence is created by the expertise we have, the way we share it and the impact it has on others. Today we are taking a big step by moving from just measuring that influence to actually helping every person maximize the impact they have on the world.
Klout has become the standard for finding the people who influence the opinions and actions of others—the people who know what they’re talking about. Klout Experts moves us closer to our vision of helping every person realize their influence. We’re excited to see how you share what you know with the world.
