Need social media help? Hire me!

Hi!

I decided to try something new today and share how I got to where I am today in social media.  Anyone who is willing to learn, put in the long hours, and do the hard work can achieve this too.  In this post I will show you all my social networks as they are today and what my goals are for 2013.  In Part 2 I will go over my 2013 goals for multiple revenue streams related to this.  This is the start of a series that I will update at least monthly so stay tuned!

Bookmark this blog, subscribe to the RSS feed, and follow me on all my social networks.

My journey started 1 year ago (Fall of 2011).

I had 9 Twitter followers and about 50 Facebook friends (mostly from high school and college days – sound familiar?).  Pinterest was new, Instagram just a fluke, Google+ (huh?).  What is this “FourSquare” thingy?

And my blog, PeterTrapasso.com was a nice piece of prime but undeveloped online real estate.

Fast forward to today; Now I have 20,000 Twitter Followers, 100% REAL (98% Active), engaged people too!

20000 Twitter REAL Followers PeterTrapasso.com

I am #194 Most Followed in San Francisco and #314,555 globally.

 

My recent TweetReach stats:  Reach 238,045, Exposure 868,234 Impressions, 13 Retweets, and 6 @Replies

My Social Scores are very high!

Klout 

My klout score 73, I am a Thought Leader, and #113 Klout Influencer!

Kred

Kred is a competitor to Klout and probably #2 in social scoring.  I just received an email from CEO Andrew Grill today.  As you can see below, I am now a Kred Social Media VIP.  I am not exactly sure what that means, but it sounds good.  I assume that it puts me somewhere below Community Leader and Top Influencer.  My score is 773 (out of 1000) for Influence.  So far, so good.

PeerIndex

PeerIndex rounds out the top 3 in social scoring.  My score of 73 (out of 100) matches my Klout score and that makes sense to me.

TrustCloud

Trustcloud is a beta service that I just joined.    I believe that it is a measure of my trustworthiness based upon a scale of 1 to 1000.  All I am waiting on is my Trustcloud postcard now.

Thanks for sharing your interesting journey through Social Media. Although I am not sure how to monetize it, I see a lot of parallels in my own meanderings through SoMe. A year or two ago I barely know the names of the platforms, and now I have reasonable mastery.

I am not sure what to think about the SoMe measuring platforms. They all seem really easy to game. Without any effort, my Klout bounced to the mid 70′s. I suppose I should spend some effort to see if I can get it to 80. Although that Klout score and a couple of bucks will get me small coffee at Starbucks.

Thank you Harold!

I think you should go for Klout 80. That’s my goal too for 2013.

Great post Peter, I love how you have specific goals for the coming year. You remind me I need to document all my network goals. My story is similar to yours and I have been working hard at growing my social networks. I see great value in the networking more than anything else. I have met so many truly great people online. Let me know if I can be of help to you :]
