Check Out LinkedIn’s New “Klout” Report

According to an Inbound article, LinkedIn launched a new tool that grades your online presence. Is LinkedIn trying to be Klout?

This is a neat tool to test out as it’s a new way to measure your influence in your industry/practice area.

According to LinkedIn, the Social Selling Index score measures your performance against four essential elements:

  1. Establish your professional brand – Learn more
  2. Find the right people – Learn more
  3. Engage with insights – Learn more
  4. Build relationships – Learn more

I checked out my score and here’s an example of what the report looks like:

Overall, I think this is a cool tool to see how you rank against other professionals in your practice area but I wouldn’t take it as gospel. It will provide you with some useful information that you can use to benchmark your social media progress. It’s a good idea to jot down the numbers and check it on a monthly basis.
