As of right now Quick Sprout has 62,232 comments, which took place over 353 blog posts. That means the average blog post gets around 176 comments… which is more than most blogs.
Sure, if you go through the comments you’ll notice that half of them are from me replying back to each comment, but that still leaves 88 comments per post.
Do you want to know how I was able to achieve such a high comment count? Here’s how I did it:
Step #1: Create an emotional connection
People like talking and communicating with people they feel comfortable around. If you can get people to love you, they’ll want to communicate with you.
Just think of Gary Vaynerchuk… people come up to him and talk to him all of the time because he has a warm and fuzzy personality.
So how do you create a bond with your readers? Well, you need to open up and help them get to know you. Within your blog sidebar, you should have an image of yourself and a quick bio. Have that bio then link to your about page.
On your about page you need to really open up and share your life story. From the good times to the bad ones and everything in between, you should be an open book. For example, on my bio I talk about how my parents struggled and how it motivated me to do better in life. Or even what my future goals are in life.
You’ll also want to show multiple sides of yourself when doing this. The bio in my sidebar is very corporate, as well as the picture that goes along with it. But the image on my about page is a cartoon drawing that is goofy and shows a different side about me.
