Waiting For Your Cat To Comment - What Makes People Post Comments On A Blog Or Podcast?

I had an early morning chat with Bryan Eisenberg. Eisenberg is an online marketing guru and master of understanding the power of conversion (getting people to buy things). He has helped author the amazing books, Call To Action and Waiting For Your Cat To Bark with his brother, Jeffrey Eisenberg, and they're constantly updating their Blog, GrokDotCom. We chatted about one of his latest posts, What Makes You Comment?

Here's a snippet from the post:

"For years, Future Now has studied what makes people buy or become a lead online. However, getting people to comment on a blog post, or even submit a review, is a different type of sale."


As of this posting, over thirty people have helped provide insight into these three questions posed by Bryan:

1. Have you read any posts (anywhere) in the last week that you found interesting?

2. If you found something interesting, did you comment on it?

3. If yes, why? If no, why not? (feel free to provide examples).

I like this meme a lot. I think most people who have a Blog and/or Podcast would love some more insight into what type of content is comment worthy.

Two choices: answer here or go to Bryan's original post here: GrokDotCom - What Makes You Comment?

Either way, it will be interesting to share your thoughts and help the Future Now people add another layer to their growing stream of powerful insights.
