I’ve been with Brainsy almost from inception and we see all kinds of responses on the various private label social media networks powered by Brainsy. There are a few guidelines on how to write a good response.
First, be on topic. A good answer will address the “knowledge gap” or the reason the question is being answered.
Second, explain why you are an authority on the subject. People will have a higher degree of confidence in your response if you are credible.
Third, reference other sources when needed. Depending on the configuration of the site in which you are participating, you may be able to hyperlink to other sources that you reference. With the correct linking strategy, there could also be benefits to search engine optimization (SEO) if you’re familiar with that growing area of digital marketing.
Fourth, use the appropriate tone. Is your site a professional site, a site for comedians, or one that is for serious scholarly peers? Be sure to match the tone with the participants on the site.
Fifth, make sure your response is well organized and grammatically correct.
Six, don’t reply with one-word or two-word responses. Provide some substance in your response. Pass on a question if you don’t have the time or inclination to answer it. The platform amplifies your response and there’s already enough content clutter in the universe. So be respectful of the person asking the question and others that may take time to read your response.
Hopefully, these tips will help you write a good response to any questions submitted to you on a Brainsy powered social media site.
