I know many people are digging Klout, but I am officially disengaging myself. It's a money maker for some company that is trying to feed on my vanity. Obviously, judging by this photo on my homepage, I have no vanity.
What the final straw was it sent me an alert email to go see the screen below. I have plenty of REAL “Oh no!” in my world, thank you. I am not playing your game.
I asked my Tweeps what they suggested for setting up a complete marketing automation process.
I got a couple practical responses (thank you.) But of more interest, I got a call from a sales person who “saw my Tweet.” He got the sale even though his compnay was never discussed in the Tweet thread. He had his TweetDeck set up for his competiors' @handle.
FYI: I am going with Salesforce with and Act-On marcom integration. Both were the right scale for my needs.
