Have you ever turned them off?
To discover why big bloggers turned their comment systems back on, I interview Michael Hyatt and Brian Clark.
More About This Show
The Social Media Marketing podcast is an on-demand talk radio show from Social Media Examiner. It’s designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing.
In this episode I interview Michael Hyatt and Brian Clark. Michael is author of Platform and co-author of the new book, Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want. He’s also an avid blogger at MichaelHyatt.com and host of the This Is Your Life podcast. Brian is CEO of Rainmaker Digital, founder of Copyblogger, host of the Unemployable podcast, and evangelist for the Rainmaker Platform.
Back in May 2014, I had Mark Schaefer and Tim McDonald (who was with Huffington Post) on the show to talk about the trend of big blogs shutting down their comments. This was spurred by a controversial post from Copyblogger entitled, “Why We’re Removing Comments on Copyblogger” from March 2014. In January 2015, Michael Hyatt published, “I’ve Pulled Comments from My Blog-Here’s Why.”
Michael and Brian will explore why the initial decision to remove comments was made and why those comments are now back.
You’ll also discover tips for how to grow your email list.
Listen as Michael Hyatt and Brian Clark share what marketers need to know about why major bloggers are bringing comments back.
