Frequent Commenting On The Internet? Create An Avatar
Do you frequently comment on blog posts and forum articles and have to recreate your signature on a regular basis? Commenting on the internet does not have to be an anonymous or repetitive action, you can actually use a commenting "strategy" to establish your online reputation, and setting up your online identity is easy and can be very rewarding.
If you've ever wondered how you can get your picture to accompany your comments on the internet (like the cool kid who always comments right after you), all you need is an avatar. Your avatar is an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog. Avatars help identify your posts on blogs and web forums. You can even create a free avatar at a website such as Gravatar.com.
Avatars For Business - Commenting On The Internet
Most of my activity on the internet is usually related to my real estate business. When I post a comment, question, or answer in a forum, my avatar lets people know who I am and it puts a face with the person. As a real estate broker who has built his own website, I troll many technical forums late at night to find ways to add value to my website. When I post a comment, my avatar lets people see who I am, and a good bit of the traffic that comes to the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog actually originates from these forums.
I also spend a lot of time researching real estate related stories. There is a huge side benefit from visiting other real estate blogs besides "getting smarter," as I utilize a blog commenting strategy to increase awareness among my peers. This awareness has lead to referrals from real estate agents all over the country, and I now have a network of trusted professionals to whom I can send referrals. By creating an online identity through the use of an avatar, my real estate business reaches far beyond the boundaries of the Tallahassee real estate market.
So take the time to create your own avatar, you never know how your reach on the internet can help you in your personal or business life. The time savings you achieve by reducing repetitive tasks is nice, but the relationships that you form are an even a better reason for doing it.
