Until recently, I would have said that reading comments for useful information was a futile activity. That’s because comment sections for channels like Youtube are generally filled with idiocy, off topic rants, ax-grinding, anonymous racism, and personal attacks from one comment-poster against another. The tips I took from Copyblogger Media have changed my mind, however. Brian Clark urges anyone to pay close attention to your comment section, because it’s a reliable way to achieve a Minimum Viable Audience. You have a MVA when:
-You’re receiving enough feedback from comments, emails, social networks, and social media news sites in order to adapt and evolve your content to better serve the audience.
-You’re growing your audience organically thanks to social media sharing by existing audience members and earned media.
-You’re gaining enough insight into what the audience needs to solve their problems or satisfy their desires beyond the free education you’re providing. BJP
