Quora is a website specifically designed to offer a question-and-answer platform for over 300 million users a month and of those, around 120 million are unique U.S. visits.
Millions of people follow thousands of topics of information, including business, entertainment, and automobiles.
Using this knowledge, it’s easy to see how experts get noticed by providing answers to questions that relate to their chosen field.
More and more owners of online companies are establishing themselves as an authority.
Once credibility is established on Quora, an author’s site is often perceived as valuable to readers of that subject and sales are likely to follow.
Offering a link to articles and products in order to answer a question, presents a further opportunity to highlight a relevant business via Quora.
It’s possible (and lucrative) to advertise via Quora and fees are lower than many other platforms.
