is an online influence score, with scores ranging from zero to 100. I’ve read that 20 is about average. For a long time now, Klout has had partnerships with businesses where people who meet some standard of “influence” get free samples to try. I think at one time even Starbucks partnered with Klout, but believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve ever received anything from Klout. Lipton sent me Tea and Honey, Mango Pineapple instant tea. Each tiny sachet makes a single serving of instant tea. In Starbucks-speak, each sachet makes about a “grande” size glass of tea!
