Darren Rowse of Problogger blogs via video and written content. Here’s a video he made a few months ago to help you get more comments on your blog. When you get people commenting on your stuff, you’re creating engagement and building relationships. That’s exactly what you want to do with customers and prospects. As you’ll see in the video, Darren says asking questions — and the following 7 in particular — are one of the best ways to do it:
- What do you think?
- How do you feel
- What is your opinion
- What will you do?
- What is your story?
- What is your experience or example?
- What have you been working on?
Naturally people like talking about themselves. It’s their favorite subject. By asking these questions within your blog posts, or even on your Facebook or Twitter pages, you could get more reader involvement.
