The well-known influence-measuring site, Klout, has had its fair share of controversy by online users. Some people feel it is useful, while others feel it to be useless, and there really is no in between. However, Klout’s recent Perk may give you a new perspective and change your mind about using Klout.
Earlier this month, Klout gave certain Klout user’s two free tickets to the Canadian International Auto Show that was used for Saturday, February 15th OR Sunday, February 16th, due to their Klout score.
The Canadian International Auto Show, in partnership with AutoTradr, has been held annually in Toronto, Ontario, since 1979, and it is the largest Auto Show and most prestigious consumer event in Canada. It provides an automotive experience that is perfect for all automotive fans, with over 600,000 square feet of dazzling displays, big prize giveaways, and engaging exhibits, including, AutoTradr, Auto Exotica, and AutoConnect exhibits.
This event is currently going on in Toronto; it started on February 14th 2014 and is running until the 23rd of the month. And Klout gave away tickets to this!
It isn’t clear what the Klout score had to be in order to receive the Auto Show tickets, but after a little research, it appears that the people who received these tickets had a wide range of Klout scores, from in the 50’s to the 70’s. In addition, Klout requested that the users who received this Perk to only redeem it if they were able to attend the Auto Show for missing an event you sign up for will affect the likelihood to be invited to future Perks.
However, if you did redeem the tickets to the Auto Show and visited the Chevrolet Canada counter while at the event, you were given a special gift, like a portable charger and the chance to win a Chevy prize pack.
Klout users with tickets were also given a personal tour highlighting some of Chevrolet’s award winning vehicles including the all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 by a Chevrolet representative, and front-of-the-line access to ride the “Camaro Challenge”, which is an interactive experience that includes a turbocharged ride through a digital Chevrolet landscape using an actual moving Camaro.
There may still be some debate surrounding the usage of Klout, but as you can see, using Klout can definitely pay off!
