If you raise your question or your opinion to a speaker in the crowd, you’re actually up to get the attention of everybody available there.

But commenting online is different from offline because online everybody does that so to stand out you have to use some tactics of
commenting.

You have to be smart and active in order to grab the attention of all other commentators and readers.

Make the list of thousands of top bloggers’ blogs and forums related to your niche and connect with their social profiles and try to be the first one to comment on the new status and the blog post you have listed.

If you are unable to do so, comment with the reply to the first commentator, by including the response to the first commentator with your own
comment about the post.

Not just any comments do the trick, you have to be creative while commenting.

YouTube Channel

I must say, what can be the best thing other than a video about you? As it’s the best online way to express yourself (the real you) to the world and get the real people as your audience who will love you for being yourself.

Making your video and having people love you for that, purely define the power of ‘being you!’.

using a simple web cam or any camera with clear picture quality and making a simple and fresh video would also work and you’ll start getting known on YouTube for your valuable video tips and vlogs.

You may not get a lot of exposure to your video at first or perhaps your first video will suck! but later on, you’ll start
getting the right things to do with your video.
