Why doesn't the UN prohibit Quora

How to Write a Quality Quora Answer

I see missed opportunities on Quora every day. People are replying on the platform all the time but are missing the mark and it's frustrating!

People don't see that Quora wants to share your answers with anyone. You have to give them something to work with! After experimenting with Quora in Hebrew for a while, I realized what kind of answer worked, and I'll share that with you below.

But let's start with the basics first - why should you care?

There are several advantages to publishing to Quora if you use the platform properly. Let's go through them quickly.

Always be noticed

Quora has a decent distribution system. If you post a high quality answer, Quora will try to forward it to people who are interested in the topic. If these people read the answer and rate it positively, Quora will distribute it to even more people.

Because of this, one of my most popular Hebrew Quora responses was distributed to over 10,000 people via Quora email digest.

Build credibility

We live in a world full of noise. You don't always have the opportunity to show people your expertise on a topic. You also don't always work in the professional field with all the things you know.

Credibility is where Quora shows your skills really illuminated.

By consistently responding to people, you can establish yourself as a source of information on a topic and build your reputation.

When people hear that you have a million views on Quora, it means something very different from a million Twitter followers.

If you put the time and energy into getting established this way, you can even open doors that you didn't know existed, such as: B. Columns in magazines or syndication to popular websites.

Driving traffic

Since Quora's job is to share your valuable answers with as many people as possible, it means more eyes to your content and more opportunities to send it off of the website to a landing page or product page when it seems appropriate.

However, you don't want to stick a link down the alley with no context. If you want to add a link to your reply, make sure it is relevant.

Now you know the benefits. Let's dive in and learn how to do this.

Quora curates presentable information. This means that you want to stylize your answers and offer great value to your reader.

You should use a resource like Unsplash.com to select royalty-free images as Quora’s editor does not yet have an image attribution indicator in the responses at the time of writing these words. Unsplash's image mappings are recommended but not required - the perfect solution for a platform like Quora.

Pictures make your answer more prominent on the question page and when Quora spreads your question out.

Nobody wants to read a block of text. It doesn't matter if it's a blog post or a Quora response. Delivering your answers this way is terrible customer service.

With Quora, it's even more important to format accordingly. The platform has an automated quality review tool that will hide your answers if they don't meet Quora's quality standard.

Use spaces and partitions sparingly. Make it easy for people to read through your answer.

Quora marks your answer as inferior if you add claims that correct citations cannot be backed up.

Think of it this way: Quora responses are an asset. They live long lives and work for you long after your first publication.

However, unless you put the right energy into creating a high quality answer, Quora will ignore your answers.

This point is due to the quality of your answer. Do you think Quora will distribute your answer if there are grammatical errors? Think again

Make sure your answer is free of grammar mistakes by using a tool like Grammar. Then read it aloud, making sure the sentences are flowing. The easier it is to read your answer, the easier it is for your reader to read it.

Your answers to Quora should be complete. That means a two-sentence response is unlikely to get the traction you're expecting.

In answering a question, think about the process your reader is going through:

  • present the problem.
  • Why it is important to them.
  • How to solve it.

Any answer that you've put a lot of effort into could appear on the platform for years to come. It's a lot of hassle that pays for itself in the long run when leads and sales come straight from the platform.

Today we talked about Quora Answers and why you should invest the time and energy creating valuable answers.

We talked about credibility, traffic, and popularity. After discussing these benefits, we moved on to the topic of improving our responses.

Notice:

  • Add pictures to your photos.
  • Make the answer presentable.
  • Add citations if necessary.
  • Digestible, grammar-free sentences.
  • Complete answers.

I would like to leave you with Quora's mission statement:

"Quora's mission is to share and expand the world's knowledge."

Always remember that Quora wants to share your answers with the world. You don't spread fake news - that's why you need quotes. They don't spread badly written answers - so you'll need to format and fix grammar and styling problems.

Create quality answers and Quora will make your answers more visible. I hope it helps!

Thank you for reading!
