It’s nothing unique, It’s called hard work
Engaging with other bloggers is easier said than done. For example it’s easy to say you will follow your visitors back to their blogs and comment but actually doing it is much harder then most think.
Over the past two weeks I have literally forced myself to engage with my blog readers on their blogs as well as here on my blog. I’m trying to get to know my readers better and perhaps understand what they do on their blogs.
Blogging is such a fun hobby and has truly become one of my most favorite activities online to this day. In the past two weeks I have proved to myself that I can have a successful blog with daily readers and visitors.
I have an interesting mix of marketing methods that has been working and it consists of hard work that you must practice daily on your blog in order for it to work properly. Trust me when I say it’s nothing unique; just hard work that’s all.
Reply to your comments
I know it’s time consuming and becomes a full time gig but you have to acknowledge your readers. When they take the time to comment you should reply to them. Not replying to your blog readers is rude and might show a lack of interest in their visiting. Let’s be realistic not all comments require your reply but the majority of them can turn into intellectual discussions.
Comment on their blog
Follow your blog readers comment luv and build on your relationships with them. I think it’s so important to visit the blogs of the people leaving comments on your blog. Read their article and make a comment if it remotely interests you. They will appreciate this trust me, just make sure you read the article and your comment ads some sort of value.
Follow them on twitter and tweet
I always follow the bloggers that comment on my blog on twitter. I think this is a great way to build on your relationships and keep an eye on their latest activity. Randomly tweeting their articles and engaging in social media marketing with them will increase the strength of your relationships.
Yes it’s hard work
Returning comments to the bloggers that leave comments on your blog is hard work. If your blog starts getting popular you could be posting 20 – 30 comments a day at minimum. This number will only increase as the blog starts to build larger. Whatever you do, don’t rush the process remember these should be sincere comments as they have taken the time to visit and comment on your blog.
Feedback and Discussions
How do you manage your time? How do you keep up with all your comments and do you reply to every single one? Do you give priority to the bloggers leaving comments on your blog before you start marketing other article you find online?
