Tip #11: Keep the Conversation Going.
In managing a blog it is important to involve reader participation and to want to keep a dialog with them, improving the chances of having them return and to continue reading and commenting on your site.
- Write posts that encourage people to want to comment; such as asking for an opinion, or to make a choice between a few paint samples you are deciding on in decorating your new office for example.
- When people do comment, keep the conversation going. Let them know that you have read their comments and available to answer their questions.
- Make it easy for visitors to comment! However, there may be an increase in spam, so keep that in mind and you'll find what is best for your site – comment moderation or not, word verification or not.
P.S. I'm back from vacation! While sharing blogging tips with you this week, I am also going to publish my first blog video tutorial to share with you!
