Have you ever heard that one way to be successful in this industry is to become attractive in it? You may be wondering how to do that if you’re new. You haven’t mastered any skills yet. That’s the whole idea behind attraction marketing – making yourself attractive so people will be drawn to you. When they’re drawn to you, they approach you and look to you for strategies so they can build successful businesses. One way to do that is to write comments on blogs and status updates.
Write Comments To Become Attractive
Yes, when you write comments on blogs, you open the door to being recognized by other bloggers. You can also attract traffic to your own blog. When you write comments on status updates, “like” a post or share one on someone’s status update, people take notice of you. They become curious to see what you’re about. In this post, I’m going to share two ways I engaged on a status update and a blog post and what happened as a result.
Write Comments On A Leader’s Page
In several trainings I’ve attended over the past few years, I learned that one way to meet people and get noticed is by visiting the page of a leader. Leaders in the industry have a large following and most of the the people who follow that leader are in the industry themselves.
They have already decided that this is the route they want to take. They don’t need convincing or persuading – they’ve already made their decision. This is important because these people are also looking to connect with other people in the industry.
I visited Tony Robbins’s page one day, August 4 to be exact, and read through several of his posts. There was one that stuck out about fear and since I was going through my own case of fear with Facebook Live, I commented on it. This is the actual comment taken right from Tony Robbins’s page. Theresa Candy Lovelace I did this today…fear of doing Facebook Live. Sat in my car for 20 minutes but did it anyway! That’s a great way of thinking because it will get you doing things that you may not ever do simply because you’re afraid to. 🙂
What Happened Next?
I got 137 likes on that one comment and 29 replies. And, still getting an occasional reply to this day, three months later. With that, I also got followers, friend requests and messages. The comment made me attractive because the responses told me that many people related to what my comment said. They wanted to connect with me because of it.
Additionally, when they read the comment, they went to my profile to check me out and found value.
Can It Happen For You?
The same can happen to anyone who comments on a post. The feedback is certain and, of course, those reading and replying to the comment can become leads as you engage in conversations with them.
This practice of visiting a leader’s Facebook page and engaging in conversations also allows people the opportunity to go onto your page or profile where they can learn about you. Here, they can find out who you are, what you do and the kind of value you deliver on a regular basis. This is good for you because if you are looking to make friends who may one day become customers or business partners, this is a place where it can begin.
Write Comments On Blogs
Here’s another example. Back in October, I stumbled upon a blog post which was an interview about someone in the same community as me. I read the interview and as always, left a comment. A few days later, I received an email from Erik Christian Johnson, the person who interviewed my colleague. He told me that he was happy that I left the comment and that he went on to visit my blog. Impressed by it, he decided to interview me. He sent me a series of questions and before I knew it, the interview was live!
I didn’t expect to be interviewed when I wrote that blog comment but this is what can happen when you write comments on blogs.
There are a lot of people who read blog posts and rather than write the comment on the blog post itself will leave a comment on the Facebook page where the link was found. These are marketers who don’t realize the benefits of leaving a comment on the blog post not only for the writer of the post but for themselves, especially if they have a blog of their own.
I was reading an article on Pro Blogger which talks about the 7 benefits of leaving a comment on someone else’s blog. Here are three: comments enable you to become noticed by another blogger or two or many more; comments can increase your website traffic; comments open the door to opportunities. If you would like to read Pro Blogger’s full article, you can read it HERE.
When reading updates, blog posts or any other content written by someone else, leave a comment whenever you have the opportunity. This helps the person who wrote it as well as the person, you, commenting.
How To Write Comments On Blogs and Status Updates
When you write comments on blogs, they should be relevant to what the post was about and should reflect how it affected or impacted you. A good comment tells what was learned from the post and how it connects with your own experiences.
When you write comments on blogs, you can ask a question that might have arisen from reading the content.
Refrain from regurgitating what the post was about. A summary is not needed especially to the author of the post.
Avoid one word comments as well as generic comments. These can be used for any post and doesn’t show that you actually read the post. An author wants to know that his post was read and was of value.
Address the author by mentioning his/her name.
When a someone writes a post, they do so to provide a solution, answer a question, ease a pain or address an issue someone else may have. Commenting on the post lets the writer know that the value has been received.“It’s a nice confirmation when an author’s work is validated, and they can see the fruit of their… Click To Tweet
