Hi Emma,

Replying is a great way to encourage more engagement, and replying something more than "thanks for the comment" is best. After all, if conversation is what you are trying to encourage, it's a good idea to say something in your reply that in itself will inspire more conversation. Ask a question. Take a position. Build upon the point made in the comment and you can take things to the next level. A strong conversation bringing out new ideas not discussed in your original post may be inspiration for a follow-up, so watch for these opportunities. Thanks, Sherryl, for sharing this post with the BizSugar community!
