Jordan already did once an awesome post on optimizing your “Thank-you” pages; this article is going to be more specific: it looks at various ways to get your blog commenters even more enrolled.
- People who have found your article worth commenting are more likely to get even more enrolled;
- People who comment are your most targeted audience; you don’t want to lose them.
1. Social Media-Friendly Way:
Description: Encourage those who comment “tweet”, “like” and share your page at various social media networks.
Actual example: Contentrix
2. RSS-Friendly Way
Description: Show a new page to the commenter where you express your gratitude and encouragement and offer to subscribe to the blog (gets 4 stars as the user is almost unable to return to the original page to read more, leave more comments, Tweet the post, etc).
Actual example: Outspoken Media Blog
!Tip: Here’s a detailed tutorial on how this can be done.
3. Email-friendly way
Description: Thank your commenter by a friendly email notice (might be considered spam by some, though I am not going to state it really is. I for one didn’t think that way but you should be generally very careful with auto-email notices).
Actual example: BlogGodown
!Tip: This can be done with help of “Thank me later” WordPress plugin
Which of the above methods look like something you would like to give a try to? Or do you have any more to add?
