How To Subscribe To Comments

A Fistful Of DollarsSince the Fistful of Dollars commenting competition started, I have had a few “How To” questions. I have addressed one already via video and will keep doing it in this fashion to help out my blog readers who may be beginners or perhaps not as “seasoned” with social media and blogs. Another query I have had via the Sean Rasmussen Talks Facebook page is this:

How Do I Subscribe To Comments?

How can you subscribe to comments via email? This means you will receive an email notification from every time there has been a reply/response to a thread you have subscribed to. I have explained it in this video below.

I will post more video’s to help you along with the $1,000 competition so you too can get hold of a Fistful Of Dollars.

Don’t forget to leave a message on SeanRasmussenTalks after you comment.

Best of luck!

    Hi Sean,

    Thanks for the video. As usual, you make everything easy for us to do. It’s a very useful tool to know how to use and now I know how to use it.:)

  11. Hi Sean, good idea with allowing the subscription. That will encourage even more discussion in the comments.

  16. OK, Thanks Sean for the heads up about subscribing. I’ll give it a whirl. Let’s see how many emails I get in my inbox.
    Speaking of email, I have just been rediscovering a great little website called Posterous, it’s a nifty trick for posting messages to a blog straight from your email account.
    For anyone that wants to join in, I am doing a little internet marketing experiment with Posterous, using it to promote a viral traffic-generator called Desktop Lightning. I got one new subscriber to DL overnight, let’s see if anyone can beat me. Check out the link.

    hi Sean

    thank you for the video. Just wondering if the box to tick was always there….

    One more question. I was about to notification of comments to my comments only.

  21. Radek Simcik says:

    and more question do we have to leave a message on Facebook each time we comment on SR?

  22. Hi Sean,
    You Tube videos are a terrific way to get the message out there.
    They are so easy to follow.

  23. We have definitely a really lively discussion going on now that there is the subscription button and we don’t have to go through all pages again to see if someone else left an interesting comment πŸ™‚

    Any guesses of how many comments we might achieve until end of March??? Jazz is closing in on the 300 all by herself already πŸ˜‰

  27. Hi Sean,
    looks like the competition has put us really on fire πŸ™‚
    I have heard a while back that there was a “mobile phone texting championship” – maybe we could apply to get an “extreme commenting” championship or something like that. At the moment Jazz would be my favorite to win that πŸ˜‰

  29. I think that if I subscribed to all of the comments on this blog I would need to create a whole new inbox just to sort through them all! πŸ™‚

    • I’m feeling the effects of this now as I kept going through my inbox trying to sort out the remaining comments for me to reply to. Then I realized it’s easy to search for everything Sean Rasmussen and go through them one by one.

      The short cuts we think of once we take a breather, huh?

      Now I’m catching up on such old comments that I’m sure people are going to wonder what I’m talking about. lol

  30. Hi Sean,
    Thankfully I received some really good tips in the YOTA Forum on commenting and how a good comment can ad value to a blog post.

    That’s interesting and causes me to strive to do better when responding to a blog post with a comment.

  31. G’day Sean,
    Thankyou for this most interesting article and especially the video. Been wondering why I’ve been getting so many emails about YOTA stuff and now I know why. As the others have said TURN IT OFF ! And I have.

  32. Instructions are straight forward. this should be enjoyable and instructional.

  33. Hi Sean,

    I never thought of subscribing to the comments. I already get lots of daily emails but I think it would be a good idea to find out what people are adding via their comments on your blogs. From each other we learn and grow.
    Thanks for the tip!
    .-= Bev Langford´s last blog ..Internet Marketing Competition – Win Cash and Prizes – Learn and Earn Free =-.

  34. i have always taken commenting for granted but now its interesting to see how vital this little simple process can be to add value to the blog / social network of the person commenting by putting in little information of your self which may lead right back to either your website or blog where ppl can check you out… already gotten my gravatar so im on my way to read you guys comments and also make few comments of my own..
    thanx again sean i rank this post very helpful!!

  35. Much appreciated Sean & fantastic to have the option of subscribing, but like many others here I will aim to avoid having *another* hundred emails in my main account every day! πŸ˜‰ I could use one of my gmails, but if I’m not keen to fish thru the spam & credit mails, I’d likely miss the updates I wanted to read anyway…

    I actually find it easier to do a quick scan down a blog page (I just refresh my constantly-open Firefox tabs) to see any interesting comment updates, rather than opening individual emails checking for comments! πŸ™‚

  36. I agree Mel. Since subscribing to getting follow up emails I have had a very busy inbox, but find it most interesting to scroll through them and reply to those which interest me or about which I feel I have something useful to say.

    We will meet regularly here I am sure.

  37. Kelly Wilson says:

    Great Idea. I’ve done this for a few comments that I’ve posted, and It’s great to read what others have written on the subject. Sharing is caring lol πŸ™‚

  38. Tess QIU says:

    Hi, Sean, you are such a patient mentor. I am sure lots of people will benefit from the competition whether they want to make a career out of Internet marketing or not.


  39. geoff harnden says:

    yes Sean, you mentioned this in your 1st webinar also but it was good to view this video again because I don’t have time for 100’s of emails either so must remember to uncheck this when I get a blog up and running. An important video this one I think.
    this is just great stuff!!! loving every 2nd of it.

  40. geoff harnden says:

    PS.. interesting to read last few comments where those think it a good idea to check this box…. I suppose it would depend on how many people are going to end up reading the blog and wanting to comment back, but surely you can see these on your blog page without getting the emails as well!! Interesting to hear your thoughts on this (as no doubt we will, as we go along). GH

  41. Willem Broekers says:

    I am learning heaps!!! The comments is a great way for people to get together and interract!

  42. Lincoln says:

    Okay, will subscribe to comments from now on.

  43. commenting like blogging, (not sure if they are one and the same thing) has been and to some extent still is a mystery to me. Really appreciate the chance to see how it works and how valuable a tool it will be in the future. really grateful for the easy learning Sean.

  44. Thanks for another great video tutorial,

    I find video tutorials to be a very good way to learn and feel that it can save a lot of time and frustration because you can stop, rewind & play again. I have had a similar instance with some Facebook notification emails that clogged up one of my email accounts with over 750 emails… was not cool!
