I Am In Need Of Your Comments {Again!}

I don’t know what it is, but, the readers of Cincinnati Coupons just don’t comment! What do I have to do to stimulate the conversation? I’ve tried every tip that I’ve read online and the only other thing I can think of is to reward you with a prize. However, I simply feel I shouldn’t have to do that.

Tell it to me straight – do I need to not ask questions at the end of the post and ask them before or in the middle? Do I come off rude or inconsiderate in my postings? Am I not publishing articles that you aren’t reading and you are simply just browsing? Are you just to shy to comment? WHAT IS IT?!? What AM I doing wrong?

  1. I rarely am on the actually computer. I usually and on my phone and your website is not compatable with my phone. At least I assume this is the problem. But when I click on your links from fb, i am not redirected to this page. That could be part of the problem with others too.

  2. I do not make comments generally, I do read most of your post, especially lately. Maybe you should ask questions and people will feel like they should respond. I do not know, but i will start leaving you comments on the posts I read since Now i Know it Drives you Crazy! 🙂

  3. Well not sure the answer to your question but for me I guess there’s several possible reasons. I don’t have kids so if its a kid related thing I just don’t have any input. Sometimes I’m just too busy to comment. Another thing, as an example, I read the article the other day about the restaurant deals for Valentines Day, and you ended with an invitation to comment if you had been to one of those restaurants, and I have not been to any of them, so I did not comment. I don’t think you are doing anything wrong , I think people just comment if the “have something worthwhile” to say. Keep on keepin on!

    I’m guilty 🙁

    I’m one of those who reads regularly—I even think of things to say sometimes!–but gets shy about commenting. Sorry!

    • Thank you ALL for commenting! There’s nothing to be shy about. We are all here to save each other money. The more commenting we get the more active I am. I don’t like to keep publishing articles every day when I’m not getting any response. When I do that I feel like I’m overwhelming you and stop posting things!

      I love the response that this article has gotten so KEEP IT UP PEOPLE! You leaving me comments is what drives me. So the more comments I receive the post articles I’ll publish! Let me know what you’d like to see more of, less or or new things I should add. I can’t read minds and only do what I feel is necessary. So again, THANK YOU!

  5. Sheesh…I go away for a couple days and you have a breakdown?! Honestly, I am hit and miss lately on when I read. All my spare time (and then some) is spent these days pinning!!! Thank you Pinterest…actually thats not true. I am not on there as much as I would like to be. Just been focusing more on the family . AND not only am I your number 1 fan but I also leave comments usually….Love ya!!

  6. My RSS feed displays the last ten posts. Here’s a breakdown of what you have posted:

    5 weekly coupon match-ups
    2 posts announcing new printable coupons
    1 Quick Tip
    1 Share It Thursday
    1 This post

    There isn’t a whole hell of a lot there that encourages reader comments. Really, how are we supposed to respond to a 2-3 sentence post notifying of us of a new printable coupon? “Nice coupon”? How about the FIVE coupon match-up posts? “Wow…great deal at Kroger this week!” C’mon. Those are low quality and unnecessary comments, which is why the majority of us don’t bother leaving them. It’s a waste of our time and yours.

    If you want more comments, then post content that is original and substantive. Most people go to comment sections because they want to express their opinion. Give us something interesting to express an opinion on. Again, coupons and deals posts don’t leave much room for conversation.
