This blog gets read by thousands of people each day.
Yet only a handful of visitors ever leave comments.
Response rates are typically low because most of us are very busy, or we don't feel compelled to share our opinion.
I understand because I rarely leave comments on other people's blogs. I just enjoy reading them and moving on.
I would like to see a change in that today because I am going to ask you to do something.
I promise, it won't be difficult.
What I am going to ask you to do is to interact with this particular blog entry.
To do so, all you need to do is scroll to the bottom of the page and leave a comment.
What should you write? Well, hopefully you'll have some ideas when I pose the following questions to you.
I am doing this to get a better feel for who you are. I want to make sure that I am bringing value to you via this blog. If only a small percentage of readers leave comments, I may be missing out on valuable feedback.
If you want to leave your comments anonymously that's fine with me. But realize that I don't hide behind any curtains. I am very clear about who I am and would ask you for the same level of transparency.
So here goes...
In your comments, I would be thrilled if you would answer any or all of the following questions.
1) Who are you and where are you from?
2) Do you have an Internet business? If so, what is it all about? What level of success are you experiencing by your own measure of success?
3) How long have you been visiting my blog or receiving my newsletter, and WHY do you read it?
4) What kinds of articles are most helpful to you?
5) If you could have me write about one thing, what would it be?
NOTE: These questions are just conversation starters. If you would rather talk about something else, I want you to feel free to do so. I'm looking for the real you, not fill-in-the-blanks. So feel free to comment however you wish.
And know that I don't have any kind of special bonus for you if you answer these questions. I'm inquiring because I really want to know who you are.
I appreciate you taking time to participate. Not only will your responses will help me take the dialogue to the next level, but I think they will help others see that they are not alone in their quest to achieve their goals.
Let the comments begin...
