Encourage Discussions on Your Site
(Page 1 of 4 )
The Internet is a place for activity and exploration, knowledge and pleasure. The Internet is filled with distractions, games, even professional tools and helpful study guides. But the Internet is also a place for interaction, as the extreme popularity of dating and social networking sites has proved countless times and in many ways. Want more interaction among your users on your own pages? Encourage discussion on your site to make your space on the Internet a must-read. Never forget that to get them talking is to get them coming back for more.
When people get involved, they get interested. They have a personal stake, an investment, in some small part of your Web site. They’ve made a connection; they’re starting to forge relationships. They’re communicating, and that’s exactly what you want them to do if you want them to keep coming back (and keep bringing that much-needed traffic to your pages). Want to know how to get them involved? Encourage discussions on your site.
Get People Talking
Lots of Web sites offer blogs and articles which allow comments and feedback from the general public. In many cases, however, you’ll find that these pieces often prompt little discussion. You may get a few comments agreeing or disagreeing with your topic, but very rarely will users sound off and actually start a back-and-forth with each other. Very rarely will a heated and popular discussion ensue -- unless you’re already doing everything right.
If you want to get people talking on your site, you’re going to have to find a way to entice them. You might also have to get more involved with your site’s content. Want to know how to get them talking? First, take a look at the content that already achieves this goal.
