I do not profess to be a master of blogs or commenting on blogs. I don’t even profess to know what I’m doing for the most part. But even with my limited knowledge I would like to make a suggestion that I think could help you and your business out.
If you are interviewed for either a podcast or a blog I believe you should make certain to go back and comment on the podcast or blog you were interviewed in. If the blog or podcast is not setup to automatically subscribe you to that series of comments then you should click the subscribe button. By clicking the subscribe button you’ll then be notified when someone else comes along and comments on that particular blog or podcast. Whether it’s the same day, next week, or next year.
I suggest this because I’ve been listening to a lot of interviews with entrepreneurs lately. And I’m also prone to comment on those interviews. Typically with my comments I’m expanding upon a point made during the interview, asking a question, or making a suggestion. I would say that the majority of my comments could provide some benefit to the person being interviewed. But ONLY if that person knows I made the comment.
What I have found is that the MAJORITY of people that are interviewed DO NOT comment on the blog or podcast in which they are interviewed. Therefore the chances of them knowing that someone else has commented on their interview is not likely.
I realize that my comments may or may not have any impact on the person being interviewed. But can the same be said for all the other people that might leave a comment? I believe business is carried out between two PEOPLE. And by commenting on blogs or podcasts that interview you, as a business owner, you can increase your opportunities for getting in touch with more and more potential clients.
Commenting on your own interviews is just a suggestion, but one I hope you and I will both follow going forward.
