Are you interested in making new friends, sharing great information, and feeling more confident about your comments?
How to Connect like You Care
1. Be friendly.
Use proper etiquette. Use their name, and acknowledge the post. “What a great post, Judy!”
2. Give a sincere compliment.
“Your tips are so refreshing.” Show their value, like and respect them.
3. Give added value to stand out from the crowd.
Add a new perspective, a personal experience or a new question to keep the flow going.
4. Make it memorable.
Ask thoughtful questions. Expand on the point. Make your comments a mini blog with two or three tips.
5. Make a parting promise.
Tell the author what you’ll share (tips) in your other groups or blogs. Don’t be selfish or lazy. Give a link to poster’s website for more outstanding information. “Thanks for the tangible, attainable help. I appreciate your hard work.” Or, “This post is so good, I must share it with my other groups on XXX!”
6. Be specific rather than general.
It’s the same with writing books – if your chapters don’t address a specific target audience, you won’t sell many books or get those clients you want. If you have more than one audience, write special information to them along with the others in every chapter. Include tips for each audience you’ve named to read your book.
7. Think baby steps.
Comment success doesn’t’ happen unless you practice. Write comments throughout the week.
8. Add your comments and tips here.
