What is a Quora? Glad You Asked….
There’s buzz surrounding a site, Quora, and many people seem to think it has all the answers. You ask a question, hit the search button and you have an answer…or 15! It may sound simple, but as a small business owner, this can be very beneficial to you.
Here’s more about Quora: It’s a question-and-answer website that allows users to post questions, answer them, share them and engage with those who have similar interests. You simply sign up and ask any burning questions you have. Currently, the website has thousands of topics ranging from social media marketing to maintaining a small business.
So, as a small business owner, you may be confused about Quora’s benefit for your company. Sure, it’s great for your personal use, but what can a question-and-answer website really do for you? Well, if taken full advantage of, it can do the following:
- Build your business contact list: Who doesn’t want more contacts? Whether you’re a web-design guru, social media junkie, or you eat, sleep and breathe PR, it doesn’t hurt to use Quora as a place to share this knowledge and connect with others like yourself. And sometimes, they can even teach you something new!
- Do away with your writer’s block: If you own a business and you have a blog, chances are you have writer’s block at times. It happens to the best of us. Luckily, you can use Quora to find trending topics to use for blog posts. And after a while, you’ll find yourself asking, ‘What’s writer’s block?’
- Keep you connected: Quora gives you the option to connect your account to your Facebook and Twitter pages. This is great because as you are sharing your wealth of knowledge with your followers, they may like what you’re about, visit your profile and follow you on your other social media platforms. More exposure for you!
