Earlier this week I wrote about Klout adding Foursquare to their social media metrics. It seems like a good topic for a podcast, so once again I get down to the nitty gritty with Trademark Productions’ CEO Dwight Zahringer and talk shop. This week we are talking about Klout, Foursquare, Spotify, and the dawning era of actually making money with social media.

Now that we’ve got a few years of social media as an entrenched lifestyle, and technology platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus with millions of daily users on them, business owners are finally at a point where they can make actionable sales via social media channels. Tools like Klout and Groupon have demonstrated that with the right data, it’s possible to connect products and services with engaged and interested buyers, using nothing more than social media platforms.

We’d love it if you joined us in this latest topical discussion about social media. Also, be sure to join us next week as I call in from the road; I’ll be travelling from Detroit to Nashville in a Fiat 500 for the Fiat Freakout event.

Now, for those poll questions: Brian says three months before Klout adds Google Plus to their metrics. Dwight says six (or maybe never). Who’s right?

  1. 3 months or less. With the amount of initial hype on Google, and the fact that they have such a strong following already with G+, it’s simply a matter of time. (But not 6 months time, sorry Dwight.)

  2. 3 months or less. With so much initial G+ hype, less overall doubts compared to previous fails, and the fact that they have such a strong following already, it’s simply a matter of time. (But not 6 months time, sorry Dwight.)

  4. I give it three months or less. Have to agree with Tyler and Brian on this one. 10M+ users in a matter of weeks and a HUGE SM/Web personality following. It’ll be no time….as soon as it’s out of beta.
