Does Your Blog Have The Five Words That Are Killing Your Sales?

Zipped mouth

You know how it goes.

You’ve just spent hours and hours writing that killer blog post
and now you’re ready for a ton of traffic and it being the talk
of the town on facebook… right?

Well hold on my friend.

You know you might actually have the five words on your blog that will stop
your post from going viral and even STOP your visitors from ever coming back.

What are these five words you ask?

“Your comment is awaiting moderation!”

Are you freaking serious?

A visitor and loyal fan of yours actually reads your
amazing blog post and wants to tell you how
much they love you…

And now you tell them they have to wait until you
get around to approve it?

Believe me, they won’t be so happy to share your
brilliant wisdom with all their friends if you don’t
even trust them to comment!

So you’re thinking… What about the spammers?

Don’t worry about it.  With plugins like askimet and
good ole’ fashion deleting the odd spam comment
once a day… you’ll be fine.

Let the conversation FLOW.

Reward your readers by letting them comment and
get their instant gratification… they’ll love you
even more AND tell their friends!

And don’t even get me started on blogs using those
lame CAPTCHA things that hurt your eyes trying
to read them!

So go ahead… tell me what you think and leave me
a killer comment… I promise you won’t have to wait
until I’m done playing tennis to approve it!  🙂

David… great to hear from you! Your blog rocks my friend, you just need to fix the link you entered… so I don't have to type it in manually! 🙂

Two quick tips for you on the house…

1) Remove the Date on each post (unless you are posting daily or many times a week) You want to post evergreen articles and not show people your last post was over XXX days ago.

2) Add thumbnail images to each post to make your blog come alive! (you have a default graphic showing up now)

Hope this helps… Ken

Great tip Ken! I like Askimet and have it on all of my sites. Will go check and see if I have enable comments on all my sites now. I have learned much about internet marketing in the past 15 months hosting with GVO. There are people from my primary business in the Whole Wellness Club learning internet marketing now. Many are new to computers so that shows you how powerful GVO is. Here's to an excellent year in 2011 helping others build an online business.

Tennis sounds fun. Do you have orange tennis balls so you can see them in the snow?

You're awesome Danielle, thanks! And it's all about INDOOR tennis baby… love it year round!
