How to Leverage Your Klout Score

Today we got a question from a reader, Janice, asking how she can leverage her Klout score. Check out the email she sent us:

“Dear How to Win at Klout,


I have been reading your tips for a while now, and they have dramatically improved my Klout performance.  I have increased my Klout score by 20 points all thanks to your tips about the game!


My question is, now that I have a high Klout score, how can I leverage this to generally improve my life?”

***Note: results not typical***

Janice, this is a great question.  Winning at Klout is the first step, but once you have won at Klout, the question is how do you leverage it to get the life you always dreamed of.

We’ll share some of our best uses for a high Klout score.


When dating, it is important to make sure that the person that you go on a date with understands how high your Klout score is.  They should understand that you are a big deal right from the start.  Be sure to prominently place your score on your eHarmony profile.

Getting Out of Jail

Fact: Once your Klout score goes above 70, you get a “Get Out Of Jail Free” card.  All of the celebrities have them (they also have high K scores).  Ask Lindsey Lohan.

With Friends

You can user your Klout score against your friends.  When they ask you to do something you don’t want to do, or they generally annoy you, you can threaten to Tweet about them with your high Klout score.  This will make you much more popular also.

With Your Clients

Clients and businesses like to work with people with high Klout scores.  They also don’t understand anything about social media.  Rather than actually explaining things to them or answering their questions you should simply say “Obviously I know what I’m talking about. Have you seen my Klout score?”

Getting In To Bars and Restaurants

Last week, I went to a bar and there was a line.  I was NOT about to wait in line like a commoner who has no influence.  I went to the bouncer:

Me: “Hey, there is NO WAY I am waiting in that line”

Him: “Sorry, but you have to.”

Me: “Do you know who my father is?!?!?!”

Him: “No.”

Me: “Do you know what my Klout score is?  I have influence!

Him: “Sorry, I didn’t know who you were. Please, come in and don’t use Twitter against me.”

These are just a few of the many ways that a high Klout score can help you in your life.
