Our scientists here at houseofbrew labs have been burning the midnight oil. A recent upgrade has improved our offline klout scoring algorithms. Although we usually keep our algorithms sacred, we decided that we would share our offline algorithms in hopes that you may “game the system” and improve your offline klout.
Influencer of your family members
Family is the first item we look at when scouring your offline stream. Since you’ve given us permission to connect with them at any time, we capture what they are saying about you. We calculate the amount of time you spend at the office and weigh that against your offline time at home. Peaking at your phone during dinner will cost you (4 positive interactions are removed from your totals). If you can’t influence your family because you’re not around – physically or mentally – well, you pretty much suck.
Likelihood that your kids miss you
So, this should be obvious, we know, but many people don’t realize just how important the interaction with their kids is. Once again,when you life-authed with us, you gave us permission to peak into their lives, so we know more about them than you do. For instance, did you know your kids cry when you’re consistently late every day coming home from work? Consistently pay attention to your kids and over time you’ll see an upwards trend in your offline score.
In/Outbound sentence ratio with your friends
Don’t forget about friends. You have influence over them, if you see them more than once every quarter. Family and kids are first for sure, but you’re going to score some extra points by influencing your friends. Through dinner parties and game nights you can cross-connect like-minded friends.
Just remember to let people talk. You’ll see your offline klout score increase when your friends are talking more than you are (hint: this makes you a good listener. Once you perfect that technique – try it on your spouse for some real spikes in klout).
Ok, so now you’ve learned how to up your overall score with family and friends, but what about your offline network and your offline reach?
Our scientists are begging for your insights on these topics (they don’t get out much): offline networking, pay-it-forward, leading, and conferences. Please leave your algorithm thoughts below on how offline klout might be calculated in those areas.
