How to get more comments on your business blog

Do you ever publish a blog post, only for the post to bomb?

Barely any views, no comments and no social media engagement – it can feel very demoralising, especially if you are putting time and effort into content creation.

However, it is important to be aware that you aren’t the only website owner who has experienced this. After all, there are millions of blogs out there, all competing with each other for attention.

Thankfully, it is entirely possible to increase comments on your blog posts. Here are five tips to help you get more comments on your business blog.

Say How You Really Feel

One great way to boost engagement is by taking a stand and saying how you really feel. Many business bloggers avoid strong opinions because they worry about backlash, but in reality, most people prefer businesses that aren’t afraid to take a stance – and with millions of small business blogs out there, this will definitely help your blog to stand out. Sure, not everyone will agree with you, but if the opinion relates to your business then it will engage people in the right niche.

Remove Captchas

People are more likely to do something if it is easy, so make sure there are no captchas or forms that people need to fill in to leave a comment.

This isn’t ideal for high traffic blogs that are already getting a lot of traffic (as they may get spam comments), but if you are only getting a few comments it is easy enough to remove any spam comments – especially if you start to get genuine, real comments from your target audience. If you’re not sure how to remove captchas, Bigfoot Digital can help you with this.

Link To Other Blogs

It can also be useful to link to other blogs. This is because the vast majority of blog platforms will automatically notify any websites that you link to, so there is a chance they will comment on your blog (or even repost it). This can boost comments and views, it doesn’t cost anything and it will also help to improve overall SEO on your website – so it is a win-win situation for any small business!

Ask Your Readers For Help

You can also increase blog post comments by asking your readers for help. Finish off blog posts with a question; for instance, you could ask readers if they have any tips or tricks of their own. Lots of people like to feel useful and as more people comment you will start to build up a strong, friendly community.

Respond To Comments You Receive

Finally, you should make sure that you respond to any comments that you receive. After all, people like to interact with each other, so if they see that you respond to comments, then they will be more likely to comment. And don’t worry about leaving long replies – a quick thank you is normally more than enough for most people.
