You write all of this amazing content, but
how do you know people are really reading it? Well the real way to know that people read
it and enjoy your content is if they leave a comment. Hey everyone, I’m Neil Patel and today I’m
going to teach you how to get more blog comments. The first thing you need to do is write in
a conversational tone. I know I’ve mentioned this many times, but
it’s really important. Think about our college lecture. If your professor’s really boring and he just
rambles on, what are you going to do? You’re going to fall asleep but if he creates
a conversation with you, you’re much more likely to engage and respond. The way you create a conversation is use the
words you and I. When you use the words you and I within your
blog posts, the text that you’re writing, it creates a conversation and it encourages
more people to leave a comment. Step number two is always ask a question at
the end of your blog posts, so when people are done reading your blog posts, what do
they do next? Well if you leave a question for them, they’re
much more likely to give you an answer. If you don’t leave a question at the end,
they’re not going to leave a comment because they don’t know what to do next. By you leaving a question at the end, it tells
them that they need to leave a comment. Step number three, make sure you use subheadings. People skim content. By using subheadings within your blog posts,
like you see at NeilPatel.com, what people do is they’ll go through your content quicker
and because they go through your content quicker, within a few minutes they’ll be able to understand
the gist of your blog post and they’ll figure out if they want to engage with you, leave
a comment, share it on the social web and that’s really, it’s those three things. You write in a conversational tone by using
the words you and I, you end your blog posts with a question and third, you make sure you
use subheadings so people can skim your posts. Sure you can try to do things like share it
on the social networks or try to get more comments and try to use tactics like using
Facebook comments vs your normal blog comments, but I found that none of them really impact
how many comments that you’re going to generate vs the three that I mentioned. Just focus on those three and you’re going
to get more blog comments.
