In my investigating ways to grow my affiliate marketing business, I came across Quora. It was presented to me in a live training on the Wealthy Affiliate platform, and I had never heard of it before that. When I saw what Quora can do, well, wow, I was pretty impressed. It’s a powerful Question & Answer platform with a lot of interaction.
People ask questions on the platform and you have the opportunity to answer the questions. You can actually sort the questions by topic so you are dealing just with people in your own niche.
Let me take you inside the platform and show you how it works!
How do you sign up for Quora?
Quora is a free online platform. There is no cost. You simply go to Quora.com, and you can sign up using your Facebook login credentials or an email address of your choice.
Once you sign up, you’ll create your user profile. This is a very important part of the process, because this is how you represent yourself on the platform for others to see.
What’s great about the Quora platform is that they do allow you to put links in your profile, so you can put your website or your Linktr.ee (social media) link.
Here’s my Quora profile. I give a little about my experience so that people know the types of questions they can ask me. I let people into my world by sharing my website url and my social media links. Take a look here:
I have been working online for over ten years, first as a realtor marketing and selling properties, and then as an affiliate marketer helping people learn the best resources to make money online.
My goal is to help people become the best they can be, work from home or anywhere, and succeed online! It’s my passion!

Add your credentials
The platform will prompt you, when you sign up, to add your credentials. You will want to put anything to add to your credibility.
Choose your Quora keywords
You want to let the platform know what kind of questions you have an interest in. This is done by providing keywords to the platform to bring up the proper questions. They call this the “Knows about” section.
Choose your keywords based on your niche. Your goal with Quora is to be viewed as an expert in your niche. When this happens, you will start to receive questions directly from other users because they trust you and want to hear what you have to say.
Here are my credentials and keywords for my niche:
How does Quora work?
Quora is a unique question and answer platform where you can ask questions or answer questions. You can find questions to answer as follows:
How to answer questions on Quora
Once you find a question that you would like to provide an answer to, you simply click on the “Answer” link to open up the answer box:
This opens up the answer box, which gives you some options.
You can begin typing your answer, or you can upload a video from your computer to answer the question:
Personally, I usually do both. I record a video response, and sometimes, I also type something to the person. Here’s a video of the platform I put together to show you some of my video responses:
Asking Questions on Quora
Asking questions on the platform is powerful as well. You want to ask relevant questions in your niche, and then you want to provide the first answer to your own question. When you ask a question, you are given the option of providing a link to go along with your question.
What you’ll want to do is ask a question and provide a link to your website that actually answers that question. Then you give a brief response or video response to your own question as well.
Just to show you the power of reach within this program, take a look at this question I posted a mere 20 hours ago! Look at all the views already:
