The more consistent you are with commenting on other blogs, the more likely the relationship will continue to grow. Hiring an assistant to regularly make blog comments on your behalf, once they have familiarized themselves with your communication style, will allow you to not only build relationships with the blog owners, but also with their devout readers. Continuing to post authentic and relevant comments on other blogs, will increase the chance of their readers diverting to your blog and/or website. This can lead to potential new social media followers and/or email subscribers. An assistant could help you stay consistent with these practices and ultimately help lead to new business opportunities, such as guest blog post, marketing campaigns, and/or co-branding partnerships, in addition to building new relationships.

Another benefit of blog commenting is that it helps you become a subject matter expert in various topics relevant to your market industry. As a small business owner or entrepreneur who follows blogs, you are most likely following those with topics relevant to your business. Bringing an assistant on your team to take the time to read quality content and add valuable comments on these blogs, will inadvertently help increase the knowledge on your team.
