Last week I tweeted a tip that received a lot of feedback and questions... "When commenting on blogs, always make sure your profile is optimized with a picture - that way you will stand out in the crowd."
So, just how do you go about optimizing your profiles to get the most out of your comments? The first step is to understand there are 3 main commenting platforms that run on 90% of blogs: Wordpress, Blogger & Disqus. Each one of these platforms requires you to set up an account. Although the process may be time consuming, you will benefit from "brand" recognition and higher click-throughs if you partake in commenting regularly.
How to Set-Up Each Account
- If you are representing a personal brand, use your own picture.
- If you are representing a company, use your company logo.
- Keep it simple!
Now get out there and optimize!
