What about Quora

What about Quora? Is it good for affiliate marketers?

Recently a student came to me and said, What about Quora?  Is it good for affiliate marketers?”  I had learned about Quora in my affiliate marketing training in the Wealthy Affiliate University.  In fact, the subject was of such importance that our Live training (which we have once a week) was on that very subject.  I know how important a subject is when it is done in the live platform.

What exactly is ???

Quora is a wonderful Question and Answer platform.  You can post questions on any subject you want and people will respond with lots of answers.

You can also answer questions other people post, and that’s where it gets interesting.

When you’re an affiliate marketer, you want to be an expert in your niche.  You want your readers to trust you, to come to you for answers to their questions and their needs with your products and/or services, right?

Here is a platform where you can become that expert and drive people back to your website for more information.

Set up your Quora profile

The first step is to set up your profile.  You want to put a nice picture on your profile, something that goes along with your niche.  There is a section where you can write something about yourself, so there’s where you want to describe your experience in your niche and put a link to your website.

Here’s a screenshot of my profile on Quora:

As you can see, I placed a link to my website, and then when I give responses, I refer people back to my Quora profile and tell them to follow the link to my website.

Answer Questions

Once you set up your profile, you’ll be asked your interests.  This will prompt the platform to start sending you recommended questions to answer.  It’s pretty cool the way it works.

When I search “Quora” in my email, I can pull up all the alerts from the platform.  Take a look here:

One of the great things with Quora is that once you start answering questions, other members will actually start asking you specifically for information in you niche.  That shows your credibility!  People want to hear from you!  How cool is that?

So how do you answer questions?  Well, you can do it one of two ways.  You can give a written response like this:

Video Responses

My favorite part of this forum is the fact that you can leave video responses.  It’s super fun and easy to do, and I find that I get a lot more views on the video responses than I do on the written ones.

Here are some of the video responses I have given on the platform:

Building Credibility

When choosing your niche, always remember to choose something you are passionate about.  It’s hard to become an expert on  a subject you have little interest in.  It’s also difficult to have enthusiasm to write quality content and immerse yourself in a niche you don’t care about.

I wrote an couple of articles about choosing your niche.  Take a look here:

  1. Hey, Babs! I’m here again for your Quora post. I love Quora because I used it before when I used to blog about psychology. I am aware of its potential, but I didn’t realize its impact on my traffic until I came across with your post.

    I did have a profile there; however, since I guess a year now, I haven’t visited nor became an active member there. So, I probably consider that in my future strategies to share content, and to generate traffic at the same time. 

    Continue being an amazing woman, Babs. Your page is really cool. I love those moving objects, by the way. 🙂

    1. You’re very kind, Mecyll!  I love the moving parts, too.  I think they’re fun and entertaining, and I can hghlight things by making them move!  I use the Elementor Pro plugin to do all that.  ~ Babs

  2. I noticed that quora is getting ranked well in the search engines.  Sometimes when I asked a question relating to internet marketing, I am surprised to see the quora website ranked on top of the search results.

    I do agree that it is a great great platform to connect to a wide audience where you eventually bring them back to your website.

    Thank you for sharing such a comprehensive article on the way on how we can connect with our audience using quora.  Looking forward to your next post.

  3. Quora, here I come! Again.

    Stopped using Quora for a while used to share academic ideas on Quora, but using it for traffic no, I have to revisit and utilise the potentials from Quora better, thanks for sharing this quality post on Quora, love your website for the quality of information.

    1. Thank you, Rahye!  Sometimes reading other people’s sites can be extremely valuable!  We learn so much!  I’m glad I could help you!  ~ Babs

  4. Thank you for your article on Quora. As an affiliate marketer myself, I have looked in to Quora as a resource. I quickly began to feel that writing content for Quora would take away from producing quality content on my website. I see how you do that now and that’s genius! Can’t wait to head back over to Quora and give it another try. Thank you!

    1. It’s in balancing the different tasks, writing content being the main one, and marketing, like with Quora is second in line.  The two go hand-in-hand.  Quality content only matters if you have people to read it, right?  We have to put it out there and then draw people to it.  ~ Babs

  5. Thank you for this beautiful post. I have used Quora for while now to get answers to my questions but never knew that as an affiliate marketer, I could make some money from it. Your explanation on how to use it is very vivid and I must add that it’s not so hard to set it up. Tha k you for giving us this information. I really enjoyed reading.

  6. made use of Quora before, didn’t know I could make money from it though. The steps are really easy but I think to answer any question, one would need a sound prior knowledge of what ever topic so it is very good that you can add that one needs to pick a niche they have a passion for, something we have good knowledge about. Overall, this is a very good review. Nicely written.

    1. I really appreciate your kind words.  It means a lot to me, John, thank you so much.  Yes, if you have knowledge and passion, it’s fun and easy to pick a niche.  I struggled financially before, and it’s not fun to work like a dog at a job and still feel like you can’t make ends meet.  Working from home ROCKS!  It was easy for me because marketing has always been my thing.  ~ Babs
