A Simple Blog Commenting Strategy To Build Your Online Brand
Identify other Blogsites that deliver similar or parallel material to what you deliver and leave a well written comment on specific Blog posts. Structure your comment so that it in turn draws comments from others, i.e. generates a discussion. This gets people curious to know who you are. Gradually they begin to think of you as a subject matter expert in that niche and your online brand starts being built. This goes a long way in building up a level of trust between you and the Blog site visitors. Building trust eventually give you a great deal of credibility on the Internet.
Leaving comments on Blog sites does not have to be a chore for you, not if you truly identify excellent Blogsites that are delivering content that excites, intrigues, engages you. Leaving well crafted, engaging comments on topics that you share a passion with the Blogger, can be a lot of fun. When you comment, it must make you feel that it was worth the time and effort you put in. When that happens you will see this in the comment content you write and as a spin off it will go a long way in building your online brand.
