Keep the conversations going on your website by answering comments with a question.
One of the strategies to get your first comment is to be the first to comment in your own post. Your first comment can be asking people what they think about the post you wrote. Avoid putting them down if they disagree, and you’ll have plenty of comments in no time. For WordPress users, consider installing the Disqus commenting plugin, which allows users to login with Facebook or Twitter, and then share their comment with these networks.
