Are you struggling with getting more traffic? Do you want to become an influencer in your domain but you have no idea how to start? There are many solutions. Some are common while others are kept secret. Some are short-term perspective while others are long-term.
Quora is a common but underrated tool to get more traffic and become an influencer. Altogether, you have to invest much time and put a lot of thought into obtaining benefits from Quora. Unlike Facebook or Twitter where you only distribute your content, you must work hard on Quora to attract eyeballs. But the advantage of Quora is that it brings qualified traffic in the long-term.
If you haven’t heard about Quora, you should know that it’s the leading Q&A network, and many personalities, famous bloggers, and entrepreneurs use it. People who are successful on Quora and other Q&A platforms base their activity on one primary principle: give before getting.
Without any further ado, the next lines will show you what you get from using Quora and how to get the most from it.
What You Get from Quora
First of all, don’t consider Quora as a way of wasting time. It’s a whole different story than Messenger or Facebook. Spending 30 minutes a day browsing various Quora questions and answers is beneficial for your WordPress skills and even for general knowledge. Here is what you get:
You have a couple of ways to generate traffic. Add your blog’s address to your profile bio or summary. Most likely, some of your followers will be curious to find out more about you and will visit your blog. Also, people satisfied with your answers might check out your profile and summary to discover more about you.
Writing compelling answers and inserting links to your posts is another way to get traffic. Add these links to provide value to the readers, not to self-promote.
2. Market Research
Companies invest a lot of money in identifying the pain points of their leads and customers. But you don’t have to invest a lot of money to know the issues of WordPress users. Just check the questions and suggest solutions in your future posts.
Are you interested in artificial intelligence but don’t know a lot about it? Many people are in the same situation, and Quora is the best place to start learning. Experts will explain the concept and provide you with additional resources. Of course, it’s not only for AI; Quora is an excellent source of knowledge for many topics, so leverage it with no hesitation.
You can get recognition by providing clear and useful answers. It’s a long-term investment, but some Quora users have become genuine influencers in their areas of expertise. Balaji Viswanathan has been followed by 483,000 users by giving 4,400 answers and adding 150+ questions. He has been a top writer since 2013, so he has continuously brought value to Quora users.
Of course, there are many other successful users. Check out this list of top writers from April 2018, study their profiles, and experiment until you became an expert in your preferred topics.
Being in the same place with like-minded people is great. You can create new connections with people who share the same passions and interests as you. Many WordPress enthusiasts use Quora intensely, so you can engage with them to find a partner, contractor, client, or blog reader.
Get the Most from Quora
These advantages should tempt you to give Quora a try. You won’t regret being part of such a serene community but bear in mind the following tips to get the most from Quora.
A Complete User Profile
Don’t waste any chance of letting people know who you are and what you do. Pay attention to your profile bio (beneath your name) and profile summary (beneath your personal bio). You can insert links to your blogs and social media profiles. Try to write compelling texts to captivate users.
Next, chose your topics of interest. Luckily, WordPress, theme and plugin development, WordPress security, and blogging are all topics followed by many users. These communities are dynamic, and the members are helpful. The chances are that for every question you ask, you will get the help of at least a few members.
Custom Personal Bio
Let’s suppose that you described yourself as a business owner in your personal bio, and WordPress security is your biggest hobby. Would someone pay attention to your answer to a question about advanced WordPress security if you are a standard business owner? Well, maybe a few members will read your opinion.
Quora lets you add custom bios for each topic of interest. Instead of describing yourself as a business owner, you can add something like, “A WordPress enthusiast, I defend my sites with bare hands.” Honestly, I think that this bio is more relevant than simply “business owner,” and your opinions might get more attention. The sky is the limit with custom personal bios!
Select Questions to Ask
Once you’ve completed your personal bio, it’s time to start being an active member. I can’t stress enough how important is to give (aka, provide answers) instead of getting (aka, ask questions). There is no golden ration of answers vs. questions. It’s all about common sense.
Don’t write answers just for the sake of answering. Bring your contribution only when you have something to say—fluffy answers won’t make you famous! Therefore, answer only the questions you can bring value to. Don’t be afraid of going against the herd. Back up your ideas with facts and logical arguments, and people will appreciate you.
If your time is limited, chose the questions to ask by checking the number of upvotes and followers. Give your best when answering questions with many upvotes and followers. High numbers mean that the issue has created a lot of buzzes, and people are interested in thought-provoking pieces of advice.
These tips are enough for any WordPress blogger to get a good start on Quora. Don’t expect huge spikes in traffic, but it might drive constant and quality traffic. Now, it’s time for you to share with us your secret tips for mastering the Quora account. Are you active on Quora? Has it driven people to your site
