What’s with Quora? Can it grow my business?

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:

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:

  • Search the platform with specific keywords and questions will display that match the keywords
  • View your emails. Quora will provide emails with questions related to the keywords you have chosen in the "Knows About" section
  • Answer questions directed specifically to you from other members on the platform.

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:

  1. Hi Babs

    I also heard of quora but I am quite impressed by your presentation. I personally thought it was not that relevant. So, I dismissed it. But now,  I think I am gonna set up my account and start taking advantage of this platform because it’s really powerful. And with affiliate marketing any free traffic is always welcome.

    Thanjs for sharing 

  2. I actually have an account with Quora, and I’ve heard that it can be good for website promotion. It’s just comes down to my time with me. I am very busy, with work, blogging, etc. So I don’t go on there very much. And since it’s not a big priority, I often forget that it’s there. Maybe I should consider logging on once a day or so. There’s also something else, I have noticed when I do go on Quora I get distracted…

    1. Yes, Buffy, getting onto any social media platform can definitely be distracting.  You have to discipline yourself to get on, do what you need to do, and get off.  Then, when you have “down time,” you can go back on and play.  That’s what I do.  ~ Babs

  3. Thank you for this post.

    I have heard of Quora but that’s it.  I just heard of it.  I just thought it was a general question and answer platform.

    I had no idea how it could be used to reach potential viewers and clients.

    Now I may have to add this platform to my daily ritual.

    Thanks again,

    Scott

    1. Glad I could help you find another marketing avenue!  That’s fantastic!  Thanks for stopping by!  ~ Babs

  4. Hi Babs, 

    Great article you have written, I took away something new and helpful today. I am learning a great deal about internet marketing recently and the comprehensive breakdown that you have provided about Quora has opened my eyes to the potential that comes from this platform.

    I love how direct and helpful it is, like a give and take relationship. I will be coming back to your page to use as a reference when I am going through the motions of setting up a quora account to ensure I haven’t missed anything. I love writers like you!

    Thanks!

    1. Wow, Jade, what a flattering comment!  I really appreciate it!  You’ve made my day.  My whole goal is to help people, and I’m so glad I helped you by teaching you something new!  Thanks, again!  ~ Babs

  5. Hello Babs. I have used Quora for some time now (maybe 1-2 months) but not in an organized manner. I can say it’s pretty effective as one of my answer got ranked in 1st page of Google (my website post got ranked on second page a few days ago and now it’s on first).

    I will certainly will make a plan for using Quora since I can see already the effect it can have. I’m new to affiliate marketing and if my answers can be on 1st page on Google, I can’t see why others’ posts can’t do that as well.

    Thanks for this interesting post about Quora. I am looking forward to next part! Cheers.

  6. Hi Babs, thanks for your explanation. It aroused my interest in Quora anew. I heard about that training inside Wealthy Affiliate, but did not pay much attention as I am so busy managing my sites. But after I realized that seeing results via the organic way will take quite a longer time than expected, I was reminded of Quora. I am already signed up there, maybe the next thing that I should do is become active with the site. I will be connecting with you there, too. Thanks!

    1. Yes, please find me on Quora!  I love the site – it’s really fun and easy to use, and the RESULTS!  Amazing!  ~ Babs
