Discover how Thrive Comments, the best WordPress comments plugin brings the addictiveness of social media and a conversion focus to your WP comments.
Spur Engagement like Reddit and Facebook
Would you put a quarter in a vending machine that doesn’t give anything back? No, of course not.
So why should visitors comment on your posts?
If they update their status on Facebook, within minutes they get likes and comments. If they post on Reddit, they could earn a coveted trophy next to their name. When they chime in on Quora, they could be voted the best answer for that question.
In a world where we’re taught to get rewards constantly through likes, games and social validation – leaving a comment on a WordPress website can seem so… meh. The most a visitor can hope for is a simple reply.
Holy cow, someone’s invested enough in your site to leave a comment and all you can do is …well, nothing.
As website owners, most of our time and effort goes towards trying to get visitors to interact with our site: click this button, visit this page, subscribe, sign up… butwe often don’t look twice when a visitor takes the time, effort and thought to leave a comment. It’s your visitor putting their hand up, letting you know they’re interested in what you’re doing – far more than just putting their email address in a field.
When all you can do is tell them their comment is ‘pending approval’, so much opportunity is left on the table.
What could you do instead?
How about redirecting first time commenters to a ‘welcome to the community’ free gift page? What about showing repeat commenters a social share button so they
can post their comment (and your post) to Facebook as well?
With Thrive Comments you can set post-comment actions. Anything from redirecting a commenter to a URL, showing related posts, giving social sharing prompts, or when combined with Thrive Leads, opening a lightbox.
Use the Power of Social to Amplify Your Comments
Why do your visitors write comments? So they can be seen, heard, and validated. So why not give them a chance to do that in a way that directly benefits your business.
We’ve brought the power of Social Media to your WordPress comments, unlocking increased traffic, reach and shares for your site.
Make commenting friction-less for your audience by allowing visitors to leave a comment straight from their social accounts, no sign in required. Combine this with an after comment prompt to share the article on social – and the ability to share individual post comments – and you’ve got yourself a recipe for Social Media success.
More Comments + Less Work!
As a company that can get over 600 comments per blog post, Thrive Themes built this plugin with speed and convenience in mind – because we needed it!
Whether your blog involves a team of content contributors, or you’re just looking for an easier way to process comments on your own, you’ll love the Thrive Comments workflow.
In a dedicated Comment Moderation Dashboard you’ll have endless comment sorting options, including comments from only your posts, comments that still require a reply, and comments on a single page or post. The whole interface is designed for speedy sorting, with keyboard shortcuts for every action.
With the Thrive Comments WordPress Plugin you can assign a comment to a member of your team, so that the most relevant person can reply. Replies will nest under the original comment to make it easier to see threads within your comments. You’ll be able to see comments waiting for moderation on the front end of your posts, and you can set up custom notifications so you can rest assured your site will tell you when a comment needs your attention. Automatically linking keywords means all you have to do is type the pre-set term in your reply, and Thrive Comments will automatically create a link to the appropriate URL.
