How To Reply On Comments

By Guardian Angel

Comments, whether good or bad means that the reader took time to give their views on your posts. It also means that your posts have been reviewed carefully and the reader found it interesting to comment on. Therefore it is your responsibility to reply, and such replies are so important to readers. Moreover, here are some useful tips:

If the comment looks sarcastic, do not do the same. Be calm while explaining your side, and pacify him. If he continues to, then you can block his future comments. However, do not forget to thank him; he viewed your site anyway.

If the comment is out of topic or asking a non-related issue, reply still. Answer his question then lead him to a proper forum where he can get more discussions. But do not be offensive; he might just do not know where to ask.

If the comment is to correct your mistake, be humble. Say sorry and thank him for the advice he gave you instead of ignoring it. Then post a reply to correct your mistake. But you may do some research before making another mistake.

If the comment is rewarding, be enthusiastic about it. Thank him with all your heart and invite him to visit again. Reply in such a way that he will comment again, and others will be encouraged to comment too. You may also visit his site and do the same if it is worthy to give. The more good comments, the more attractive your site will be.

In any case, reply quickly. A comment deserves a reply at once. A simple Thank You is very appreciable not only for him but for other readers, too. But it is better if you add some flowers to your reply to make your readers smile a bit and a chance to be your regular visitor.

To reply on comments is a very healthy attitude. This means that you are deeply concern with your readers, and this is one of the best ways to promote yourself.
