Blog Commenting 101

Hi everyone!

One way to properly increase brand awareness, create additional inbound links and drive traffic to your site is through blog commenting.

blog commenting image 1If executed correctly, blog commenting can generate favourable results for you. (Especially when you do the commenting on authority sites.)

In my ongoing effort to increase your marketing awareness, I’ve listed down some basic blog commenting do’s and don’ts.

Here’s my take and hope you can learn a thing or two from it. Read on!

Blog Commenting Etiquettes

Some shrewd on-line marketers will always grab the opportunity to comment on a blog site because they want to add their own link (usually their site or solution) in the comment that they are posting.

Can You Post Comments with Links?

Is this an acceptable method when doing blog commenting?

blog commenting image 2One main reason as to why marketers would want to leave a comment with a hyper link in it is because they want to generate a back link.

This back link usually leads to their site or sometimes even to a landing page.

While this practice can be frowned upon, still if approved by the blog site administrator, it’s  an excellent way to get a lot of views for your brand.

While there is a lot of value to be enjoyed whenever a blog comment with a hyper link is approved by a high authority site, still it’s inappropriate especially if it’s a “link-bait and switch” type strategy.

Let’s not forget that blog commenting is all about giving your personal or professional take on the subject at hand.

It’s a proven practice that you should leave a comment in respect to the material mentioned, meaning the comment should be relevant.

If you were to add a hyper link in your blog comment, then it should offer value and be related to the topic of the blog.

Here’s a good example of how blog commenting should be done.

3 key elements of a quality blog comment

Use an Avatar

This will prove that you are a “real-and-alive” living individual and not just a robot or a pigment of some shrewd marketers or black hat ops imagination.

Use your Real Name

it’s a proven effective practice to use your real name and if you are asked for an email or website in the comment form, add them as well.

Never use a keyword that you are trying to haggle for

This is a clear signal of  spamming. Leave a comment that offers actual value. Likewise, please don’t ever, ever use the comment box to introduce yourself or your brand.

Time and time again we see a lot of comments that take 10-15 seconds to read!  These are obviously just for self-promotion and are geared to get a back link to their brand.

Give real value every time you blog comment and in time you’ll see your connection grow. Why? because people will notice that you know your stuff and this will lead them to seek you out.

That’s all it takes!

Now, can you start commenting on my blogs?

Effective Blogging Secrets Revealed!

Hi everyone!

“Blogging is a conversation, not a code.” – Mike Butcher.

I believe this is true. There should be a connection. Sadly, a lot of bloggers ignore this crucial key point! All they want is to let out their opinion and blabber without really connecting with their readers.

bloggingAn effective communication contains two key components – speaker and the listener. The same holds true in the “blogsphere.” Unless the speaker (blogger) can effectively convey his idea, then there’s what we call a failure of communication.

Imagine this, you are the blogger, how will you cook up a blog that will perk the interest of your readers? Give that thought some precious seconds to sink in. If still unsure, let me offer these tips:

Blogging Tips

Compose Head Turning Headlinesheadlines

Your headline is your readers first contact point with you. How well you craft this will determine
if you’ll turn a prospect into a follower. Always right a compelling one. Usually readers only want to know what they can get from you. Address that properly and you’ll get their attention. Make sense? Read on.

Start with a Strong First Statement

strongA strong opening statement will definitely add to the effectiveness of your blog, no doubt about it, so it’s pertinent that you take some considerable amount of time thinking of a killer statement. Take this approach along with your compelling headline as a one-two punch combination.

Readers can’t resist this approach. It’s the lure and the bait.

Learn how you can draw up a compelling headline and then boost it up further by giving it a killer opening statement. This can take a while, but with constant practice, you’ll get it eventually.

Use Powerful Words

According to the modern English language, words are not created equal. Some are more powerful than the others. Use these words to your advantage. Sprinkle your article with these powerful words. Some example are – you, free, new, because and instantly. Have you used these words lately in your posts?

Nothing beats a killer sentence!one day

“Sentences are the engines of creativity. “– Demian Farnworth. Nothing is truer than that fact. Take this sentence for example “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” See how instantly it painted a scene in your head? Killer sentence evokes emotion. It also creates an image in your mind. Lastly, always address the 5W’s, who, what, where, when and why. In short, be factual too!

Be Authentic

originalYou are a unique creature. You have your way of structuring sentences that instantly inform readers that it’s you that they’re reading. Use this uniqueness to your advantage.

You see, the problem with today’s budding bloggers is that they want to be the next big Matt Marshall or any of those big name bloggers.

While it can help to have someone to look up to and imitate, in the long run you need to discover who you are.
