I had an interesting thing happen recently on this blog. A dude I don’t know, by the name of “Mario M.” sent me about sixty comments on multiple posts. I thought this was weird because, although they all seemed unique, I saw them popping up over a very short period of time, so I decided to contact Mario, to…
Talk to Him
About it !
Sure enough, he never got back to me, even though I used the contact form listed on his website to email him. Me-think he most likely outsourced those comments and that was a terrible mistake on his part, so I wanted to take a moment to tell you…
Your Comment Will
Blew You Big Time !
1. It’s Your Comment
When you post a comment on a post, it should be the expression of your opinion, and not your contractor’s. No matter how hard you train your contractors, you won’t be able to completely control what they say, and since they’re putting your name on it…
Are Your Opinions
As Far As Everyone Visiting the Blog
Are Concerned !
2. There is No Need to Outsource Commenting
Blasting authority blogs with hundreds of comments is about the worst thing you can do. I can promise you none of your spam comments will stick, and it’ll be a terrible waste of time. Normally, when you comment, you’ll be posting one or two comments on a post and that’s it. There will probably be about 5 to 8 blogs you’ll be following and commenting on regularly.
Do You Really Think
You Need to Outsource that ?
Of course not! An experienced blogger knows exactly how many comments he’s going to get on his posts and how long they’re going to take. He knows it because he’s been blogging most likely for years. If he sees anything that doesn’t seem normal (like I did with Mario), red flags get put up, and…
Don’t Stick !
3. They’re Your Friends’ Blogs
No matter what, your contractor does not care about the quality of the comments he’s making as much as you do. Since ideally you’ll be commenting on blogs belong to people you know and work with, you want to make sure your comment is…
As Good As
Humanly Possible !
Don’t risk your relationship with some of the most influential people in your market by letting someone you don’t really know or trust write something…
You Can’t Control
At All !
4. You’ll Get Lost
As I’ve just mentioned to you, there are usually just a few blogs in every industry that are worth commenting on, and for the most part, the people that run them don’t post all that often. If you do your own commenting, you’ll have an easier time staying on top of what you’re doing, and if you provoke a conversation…
You’ll Be Able to
Mark it Down and
Get Back to it Easily !
There’s nothing better for your relationship with an influential blogger, than an ability to start an interesting, and dynamic conversation. I can assure you your contractors won’t put enough heart into their comments to spark any interest. Remember…
They Just Want to
Get the Job Done and
Move On !
5. Your Comments Will Not Be Passionate Enough
When you look at blogs and particularly read the comments, you’ll immediately be able to determine whether a person who made them actually believes in what they say, or whether they’re just faking it. Obviously, if you do the commenting yourself, your comments will be more emotionally charged, because…
You’ll Be More Passionate
in Your Writing !
This passion will, of course, lead to more interest, and, if your comments are interesting, funny or provoking, you’ll be noticed by the blog owner and…
in Near Future !
6. It’s All About Your Relationship

The comments are often the very first thing a blog owner sees when they get to work in the morning and log into the dashboard. They read them before they check out the website attached to them. They go through them before they open their email. I know some people who won’t even answer their phone before…
They Check Out
the Comments !
That’s how important they are. If you make good quality, helpful comments, the person running the blog will have a good opinion of you, and they’ll look forward to hearing from you again. On the other hand, if you outsource your comments, and they turn out cheap, your relationship with the blog owner will be ruined.
Wanna Take that Risk ?
7. Set Yourself Apart from the Competition
People try to outsource everything, which for the most part is a good thing. It saves time and gets things done very quickly and efficiently. As you probably already realize, however, blog commenting is not the best thing to outsource, and yet…
A Great Deal of Bloggers
Do it !
If you don’t, you’ll be different from them, which will be extremely helpful when it’s time to promote something on your blog. Having said all that… Some of us work in multiple niches, and if you do, you know how hard it is to comment on all those blogs and…
Stay On Top of
What’s Going On !
That’s why, there might come a time when you’ll need to outsource your blog commenting. When that happens, I want you to keep one thing in mind:
It’s going to be hard to find them, but people like them are out there. When you find an employee like that, treat them well, and…
You’ll Have a Great Asset for
Many, Many Years to Come !
