A week or so ago my Klout score became high enough to participate in the MOO business cards perk.
If you haven’t heard of Klout before, it’s a website which collates your online interactions across a range of networks to come up with an overall score.
From the website:
Klout was founded in 2008 to help you measure and leverage your influence. We believe influence is the ability to drive action. For example, Oprah’s opinion on literature has inspired millions to read titles from her book club. But you don’t have to be Oprah to have influence. You influence your friend when she listens to a song you recommend on Facebook. You influence your coworker when he checks out an article you posted on LinkedIn and shares it with someone else. Social actions like these are a reflection of influence.
Perks are therefore a way that businesses can interact with socially influential people to promote their products.
I recently achieved a Klout score high enough to participate in the MOO perk. MOO is an online printing business – you choose what you want printed, upload your images and they send it to you. With the perk I was able to make 50 business cards. In person they have a really nice silky quality to them, I’m a big paper fan so the quality really impressed me. They’re also made from paper grown in sustainable forests which is always nice!
If you’re wanting to order some business cards, I’d definitely recommend them. For 50 cards it works out at about 20 odd NZD (Prices are in pounds) and shipping to New Zealand was another $5. That makes them a bit more expensive than some of the other online business card companies but the quality makes it worthwhile I’d say. They also arrive in about a week from the UK to NZ.
