Pros and Cons Of Quora

I’m impressed with Quora for a number of reasons of which I have already pointed out some of them. However, no website is perfect, right?

Let’s do this. Let me do a pros and cons of Quora and then we will wrap this article up.

who when why what and how in marketing your products

Pros Of Quora

I like Quora so listing a few of the pros is easy for me.

1. Branding. Because I’m such a large believer in blogging, I understand the importance of branding either yourself as an individual, or of your blog in a specific niche.

Quora really gives you a chance to brand yourself as an expert in your specific niche. This only works if you answer questions honestly and providing really useful information. This is similar to if you were in a discussion forum answering questions with helpful information as opposed to writing short answers just to increase your post count.

2. It’s free, sort of. OK, it will not cost you any money. However, what it will cost you is time. This has always been one of the big advantages of using the Internet to market something.

What you lack in money you can make up for by investing your personal time. If you’re willing to do that you can begin to get your name, your blog, your products, etc out there because you are developing a reputation by the time you invest answering questions on Quora.

3. Get your questions answered. I tend to be writing on my blog about tips as though you are the one doing the marketing.

However, you can also go to Quora to get questions you have answered. This is a good way to interact with other Internet marketers as well as solve a problem you may have.

4. Start a debate. Not every answer may be the correct one in your opinion. This gives you the opportunity to jump in and give what you think is the right answer. This can lead to a debate which is friendly and can be helpful to everybody involved.

Cons Of Quora

Like I said, I like Quora, so listing a few of the cons is a little harder for me.

1. It’s hard to get around in. For newbies, it can be a daunting site to navigate. However, once you get the hang of it Quora is like anything else that is new, it becomes easier to take advantage of.

2. Fact check. The answers to questions are supplied by other Quora users. This community of users is not an editorial board.

You need to determine whether what you’re reading is factual or not. I personally think it’s worth taking a little more time to fact check specific questions and answers if it’s something that can affect your business in a positive or negative way.

ask questions to get answers to your businessConclusion: Is Quora Reliable?

In my opinion, try different platforms to advertise your business, and the ones that you feel comfortable with and is having success, spend a little more time with that one.

Platforms such as Quora provide us with an opportunity to put forward our opinions, which means other users will respond and acknowledge if they are truthful or not. This can be both helpful as well as entertaining at times.

If you post informative questions and answers on this site your business traffic will improve because users will identify you as an expert in your field or industry. It is a passive way to get more eyeballs on your own blog.  It means that Quora is a reliable site for those who post content that is informative and engaging.

Remember, among its many benefits, is it’s free to sign up for which means it is a good option for start-up businesses. Posting on this site is easy, thanks to being easy to use.

Quora has millions of users which means you’re sure your company’s visibility will increase. In case you want to become an authority in your industry, you should consider signing up for this site.

Beside joining Quora, you should join a community of people in your field that can advise you on the changes of what is working on the Internet. Join a platform that is recognized as an authority by Google to get content ranking quickly. The best one I see out there is Wealthy Affiliate.

It reminds me of Yahoo Answers, a place where I get most of my blog ideas from. traffic is good but it can really absorb a lot of your time, especially if you the one that asks the question. Thank you for the comment.

  4. Donny

    There have been countless of questions that Quora has answered for me! It’s a really great place to get answers to any problems you might have. I have tried answering questions to generate traffic to my blog, but I wasn’t successful. I know it’s possible and there’s a lot of traffic to be gained for it, I just didn’t have a good strategy to do it. People don’t like if you’re just throwing your link around.

    • Bishop

      Donny, glad that you have gotten lots of your questions answered here is always good to do the same for others by answering their questions. The traffic is long-term and if done right it can help brand you as an expertise in your business. Many has follow my strategies and it did work for them, so take your time and learn to do it right.

      What have worked for me is that, I do not place my blog links every time. I have done it sporadically, and that has worked best for me. If someone ask a question sometime I go about it leaving a answer without a link. If that same questions continues, on the third time I will place a link, and that link would be a blog article to help that person get a further understanding on the question they ask. Hope that helps.

  5. Dear David,
    Thanks for the post on “Is Quora A Reliable Source? Why You Should Consider Using It” Recently I started using Quora and I got few visitors to my site through Quora. And we can get lot of information from Quora and as you rightly said it helps in branding us and our site. Thanks for the post again!
    Your Friend,
    Paul

    • Quora is very helpful in getting your questions answered, and serve as a place to help others with their business. Be careful when answering others that you don’t like you are spamming. leaving your links is good but sometimes if you engaged in a certain topic, is better to leave your links out. Hope that helps.

  6. justin

    Hey i really enjoyed this article, i have tried out that app recently. I havent used it that much but i have answered some questions on it. I really need to get back into it so i can bring in more traffic to my site. It does look like a lot of people are interested in blogging the only problems is others are also trying to promote so you got to try to be the better one!

    • Bishop

      Justin, you hit the nail on the head. You can find yourself spamming and not using Quora for what it was real intended for. but if you provide some real value, your website and offer can attract a lot of customers.

      It is even good to answer problems at times without leaving a link to your offer. Hope that helps!

  7. Linda

    Hi David,
    I enjoyed this article on the Pros and Cons of Quora because I’m always interested in different perspectives. I’ve been a fan of Quora for some time and have definitely derived benefits for my website in the form or relevant traffic and also backlinks. Once you’ve answered questions in a particular area (such as affiliate marketing), you’ll be asked to respond to future questions in the same general area. I’ve found it beneficial to provide thoughtful answers on Quora’s site and provide links to articles on my own website that delve further into the issue. Thanks for the interesting read!

    • Bishop

      Hey Linda, glad that you enjoy this article, and thank you for leaving a comment and some insights about Quora. It can really boost you traffic, but you can get lots of ideas to write articles about as well.

      If you give honest answers to people questions and provide valuable website for them to research, you will be view as an expert and people will buy your offers. Good to know that you are seeing results from using Quora as a reliable source for traffic. Take care!

    Hallo there,

    I have really been considering using Quora to increase the visibility of my site and hopefully make a few dollars off of it.

    The thing is, many people are talking about how great it is to leverage and I think it’s worth the try after reading your post. Thanks for confirming it is worth the shot.

    Have a good one.

    Great site. Well laid out and informative article that readers can easily relate to. Although I have used quora to get answers, it never occurred to me, until reading your article, to use it to build traffic to my site. Thanks for the idea. Great job. Well done. The fact that you write from your own experience makes your articles so much more acceptable. I wouldn’t change this technique for any reason. Your site is realistic and welcoming Much success.

    • Bishop

      Muhammad, thank you for your kind words and comment. Remember when using Quora don’t appear to be spamming by repeating your links when asking questions, when giving answers as well when starting out. 

      That is the reason I recommend everyone to join Wealthy Affiliate, cause all the training within you have an affiliate link associated to these training, and you can use that to answer people questions. 

  10. Dave
