I know what your thinking, another Social Media Influencer Website! But recently I found a very difference unique site called HireInfluence. HireInfluence:
is the first social media platform that goes beyond an influencer score by gauging real, impactful influence with quantified results, HireInfluence will change the game on who is considered “influential” and how companies approach marketing campaigns. what interest me is that this report is somewhat different than what others are doing.
For consumers, HireInfluence is a platform that allows them to showcase their abilities, be discovered by companies looking for advocates and validate their social ability – showing a true social footprint.
For companies, by giving a 360-degree view of an individual’s social media and work history, HireInfluence allows companies to quickly research and immediately identify the most impactful brand and product advocates for a marketing campaign or do a “social media background check” on a candidate.
Some of the capabilities and highlights of the HireInfluence interface include:
Search – A search engine that gives businesses unprecedented search criteria options to strategically identify and leverage “Networking Superstars” in their target market or industry.
Proprietary Score – A “Strength Factor” score based on real influence, to include the level of impact the influencer has via each social channel, as well as real work experience within specific industries.
Social analyzing – A first-to-market aggregation and validation of the results, to include demographics of friends and followers, location of influence, key words used and engaged vs. fake followers, to name a few.
Star Rating – Each person’s profile has a star rating given by other companies as well as rankings against other Networkers to “recruit with confidence.”
Social Media Background Check – Printed profile for a sales or promotional employment opportunity.
My Thoughts on HireInfluence:
I’m currently adding my information on HireInfluence so my score should be higher when I am complete. What I like about this site is that I can easily print my report so I can hand out & distribute locally. When I attend an event or business meeting, I am sure the person asking for the meeting has already vetted me. They normally have done all the hard-work in getting me to that specific meeting, but perhaps their partners haven’t. You may need to have any information on hand to secure a 2nd meeting or come to terms that both parties can be happy about. I like the concept and look forward to finding out what my true ranking might be when completely done.
It took me a few minutes to activate my profile using Twitter on HireInfluence and found out that I have a social media #strengthfactor of 41.5 thus far. Go activate your profile and let me know what your #strengthfactor is. Everyone that activates their profile before March 25th will be automatically entered to win 1 of 3 $100 Amazon gift cards! How cool is that?
How do you secure & validate your social media presence when striking a connection locally? Do you think this report may be something that a local contact may value in order to reach a business relationship?
