What is Klout? Who are the top influencers in the wine industry?



What is Klout?
Who are the top influencers in the wine industry?


1) What is Klout?
The Klout Score measures influence based on your ability to drive action. Every time you create content or engage you influence others. The Klout Score uses data from social networks in order to measure:
  • True Reach: How many people you influence
  • Amplification: How much you influence them
  • Network Impact: The influence of your network

2) Who are the top influencers in the wine industry?
I'm compiling a list of the people with the highest scores in the wine industry. This first article includes only influencers whose name starts with letters A or B. You will find their names, scores, links to their pages (twitter, facebook, google+, klout, etc), as well as their top influences on Klout (besides wine).

Here they are... Wait a second... Please note that only scores over 40 were included. If you are my friend on Facebook and were not included... work harder! :)

 Top 4 scores (letters A and B) - They are also the only four scores over 60:
  1. Andre Ribeirinho 68
  2. Arto Koskelo 67 
  3. Alexandra Corvo  63
  4. Anne-Victoire Jocteur Monrozier 61
  5. 61


Very interesting fact: The 5 top scores for letters A and B are EWBC alumni... let's see if this "coincidence" occurs with the other letters of the alphabet... The other common factor is that they are all my friends in real life... :)

Please let us know if your Klout score has changed since this article was published and we will gladly get it fixed for you.
Cheers,
LA
