The Right Way And Wrong Way To Post Comments

Posting comments in blogs and forums can be a great way to promote your business for free.  But, it can also be harmful and a waste of time.  What do I mean?  That’s what this post is about.

The correct way to post comments is to add value.  Stay on topic with the blog post or forum content.  Reply to the comments of others.  Essentially, you want to engage in conversation and provide good content and helpful information.  The same as if you were writing a blog yourself.  Think of it as a mini post.

Now, the wrong way to post comments would involve simply promoting your own website.  Or posting a comment which is generic, completely off topic, or does not provide helpful information to others.  You see, if you are only there to promote yourself or your website, people will see right through it.  That, and your comment or forum post will probably be edited or completely deleted.

So don’t waste your time or the time of others.  Simply post comments which are helpful to the writer and other readers.  You will be a better person for it and you will help to brand yourself as a helpful person.
