Have you ever heard the phrase “You won’t get anything unless you ask for it?” Turns out, this is a great rule for getting more blog comments!
It may seem like a common sense thing to some, but so many bloggers forget to ask their readers to comment. While your end-of-article ask can be styled or made to stand out, it can also be as simple as including a line at the end of your post asking the readers thoughts, or for their additions to the conversation around the blog post’s topic.
How Can Nonprofit Blogs Use This Tip?
For example, if you are writing a post about some news in your nonprofit’s community and sharing details about an announcement with your website’s audience, you can end the article by asking readers their thoughts on the news, or about a specific part of the announcement. You can even structure a question around a statement made by a local official and engage audience members by getting their thoughts.
In the end, the goal is simple: engage your audience simply by asking them to participate!
