The number one goal of your blog might be to make money/ sell you product or service, but you need to see it as a way to start a discussion– and this my dear reader, is what you want! You want people to be engaged in your brand. There are three very simple ways to engage with your readers. And even better to help your readers become engaged with each other!
1. Reply to comments.
Do I need to explain this one? After all when you started your blog you wanted people to read it– so talk back. And most importantly listen!
2. And CommentLuv plugin.
Great plugin that allows for your readers most recent blog post to show along with their comments. A great way for your readers to share and for you to learn more about your readers.
3. Add InLinkz plugin.
You might have seen this at the bottom of blogs posts when you are asked to share your related blog post. A interactive way to share and to learn more about your readers. And a great way to create a community for your readers where they get to know each other. I might start using this a posting series that I want to do on my favorite Home Education of the week.
