What is Quora?
Quora is a platform that enables the community of users to ask and answer questions on any topic.
Once answers have been provided to a member’s question the community votes which answer is the best answer by liking and upvoting the post. The post that is seen as the most useful, is then displayed at the top.
Why is Quora useful for marketers?
Quora has over 700, 000+ visitors each month.
Answering questions related to your niche helps you to build up your reputation in the industry.
Once you’ve written an’ answer to a question relevant to your industry, you can then insert a link to reference where you extracted the information from.
The last bullet point pretty much answers your question. For the remainder of this post, I will share some tips for marketing on Quora:
#1: Optimise your profile
- Upload a photo
- Write a short bio
- Include links to your company’s website
#2: Find questions to answer that are relevant to your niche
Use the search feature to find questions related to your business. You may want to answer questions that are new and have yet to be answered, or you may opt to answer the questions that have answers with lots of upvotes and likes.
Tip: Set up your email notifications so that you will receive a notification when someone asks a question in your niche.
#3: Create high-quality answers
Make sure that your answers are of high quality, and actually adds a useful insight to the community.
Get into the habit of adding key takeaways to your posts. This makes your advice more practical and actionable.
Optimise your Quora answers for on-screen reading.
A few ways to do this is to keep paragraph lengths short, add bold to keywords/terms, using bullet points and/or numbered lists and adding in pictures to break up large blocks of text.
If done properly Quora works!
