Network Marketing Blog – Are You leaving Good Comments?
You will hear some guru’s tell you that blog commenting is totally useless and a big waste of time. That is because they themselves don’t do it so they don’t understand the real value of them or how important they are to your overall social proof.
You need this kind of proof if you created a network marketing blog. Without this proof there is no way of telling a potential prospect if what you are saying is true or just a bunch of horse poop.
It is these same guru’s that tell you blog commenting is a waste of time, so you should spend money on learning what they are doing. Last I checked to comment on someones blog is FREE.
Just recently like within the past few days I have been reading how people should leave comments. Literally on a daily basis I am deleting comments that are either total spam in nature or don’t add any value at all.I see my traffic stats I know there are tons of people visiting my blog and almost daily it seems I am deleting more comments than I am accepting.
I attribute much of this to lazy people who think they are going to get ahead by using automated software. OR are so ignorant that they don’t even bother to read what they are commenting on.
RULE #1 – While automated software can do things like help you find blogs to comment on, if you are using auto commenting software to leave your comments, the only thing you are doing is getting black listed by the bloggers you are annoying. My Advice – Always leave well thought out comments.Network marketing Blog – Ignore The Guru’s
To be successful with your network marketing blog you need to balance getting comments from other bloggers while gaining organic traffic from the search engines. Matter of fact commenting on the right blogs will help you get even more organic traffic.
Network Marketing Blog – Leave Good Comments
What you should realize is that leaving blog comments is an art form all to its own. The more comments you leave on other peoples blog the more people will come visit you. Over time you will start getting more and more comments from friends you make online.
While there are many different things that you can do online to promote yourself and your business. Blog commenting ranks high on the list.
I was watching a video by Yaro Starak, he stated ” When leaving comments you want to emotionally engage the author of the blog and the other commentorsÂ of the blog.”
So the bottom line is if you are using a network marketing blog in your promoting you need to make sure you are leaving good comments on other bloggers blogs.
This will help you to create a blogging community. This is one of the ways that you will be able to create social proof for readers that find you because of search traffic.If you are using your network marketing blog in conjunction with your email marketing , it will also help you earn the trust of the people you are prospecting too.
Blog commenting is a win/win situation for everyone. Beware bloggers including me don’t like worthless comments.Â Don’t just comment to comment. Always read the post and other commentor’s before leaving your own comments.I know I already posted about blog commenting already but after reading several different blogs online on the subject matter I wanted to re-visit this topic.
I would say that most comments don’t get accepted for the following reasons.Always use your name, I know some people use the keyword luv plugin the proper way to use it is yourname@keywordUse a picture with your comment this only takes a few minutes to set up so you should do it asap if you haven’t done so yet go to Gravatar.com and set up your free account. Upload a good picture of you.
Even if you don’t have a blog and are only marketing a lead capture page or another one of your websites, if you use gravatar with a picture you will have a better chance of getting your comment on a persons blog and getting traffic and a backlink to your site.
