How To Make Money Online With Quora

What is Quora?

Quora is a a very simple social networking site where you can ask questions and people will answer your questions. One of the hottest Quora posts was made from Tech evangelist, Robert Scoble, with his post; Is Quora the biggest blogging innovation in 10 years? Quora also is great for  helping people. It also allows you to choose which topics you want to follow and read about and only displays questions related to those topics.  One thing that I love about it is it’s founders are ex-Facebook employees!

Why is Quora important?

Quora is steadily becoming an information giant.  TechCrunch reported “It’s not just that it’s Yahoo Answers reborn, it’s that it’s Yahoo Answer done right.”  I couldn’t agree with them more.   When I was in California at The Crunchies I was able to talk with a few people that worked at Quora.  I asked them “Why did they think Quora is important?”  They responded that Quora gives people a connection to each question.  It connects you to the person who answers the question.  You can ask your friends questions, and get multiple people to answer.  It’s social responsibility that the person has to answer the questions accurately.

How do I make money with Quora?

Quora isn’t the easiest place to make money but it is possible.  With Quora you have a chance to help people out and answer questions.  Instead of putting garbage information and crappy links into their system that will be “no-follow” links.  Write something that will be useful to the person.  Answer their questions.  Answer as many questions as you can.  When people trust you, they will go to your profile where they will be able to see what your website is.  This site is a great opportunity to give people a reason to trust you.  When a person has trust in you, they will follow you and buy anything that you put in-front of them.  This will allow you to make money online with Quora.

    Quora looks really good. I have been using Yahoo Answers for quite some time now… but seems like Quora is more active and better!

      Quora has a lot more of the social aspect which I think a lot of sites like Ask and a few others lack. Check it out, I’m sure you’ll like it!

  • Andrew @ Blogging Guide

    Yahoo answers are good because once you are able to frequently give good answers, people check your website and everything about you. So it is good that there is a better one, which is Quora. I will be checking this out. ex-Facebook employees?! Wow, great minds :D

    • John

      Yes, it was built by Adam D’Angelo, former CTO and VP of Engeneering and Charlie Cheever who was over Facebook Connect. Both huge people in the Facebook success story. Looks like this new Quora venture is following in slower footsteps!

  • PR@ AlmostLikeEverything!

    I heard about Quora, But was bit confused about what it was exactly, i think if they at Quora are clear about what to do next with it, It can be The Next Big Thing, because people are curious to Ask and Answer!

    • John

      They are a lot like Ask and Answer but with more of a social twist to it.

  • vijay | bayofblog

    Yahoo answers! Is my favourite where I got more benefits from it when I honoured as ‘ Top contributor’, Quora it’s new for me and seems to be a better idea to earn money.

  • Kartik@DailyTechPost

    Hey I didn’t know about Quora …thanks for sharing it ..I will try it for sure :)

  • Morgan

    I guess it’s just like with anything, build the trust and people will end up purchasing whatever product or service from you.

    Quora is still very new and seems more spammy than anything to me right now. Also seems like a sounding board of “I’m better than you”.

    We’ll see where it goes. :)

  • Himanshu

    webanswers also offers a similar service. will try this too, seems interesting.

    • John

      I’ll have to try that one out. I’d never heard of that

      • Jagan Mangat

        That’s the reason,the groups or networks which makes noise are popular these days……

  • Abhishek@Techdistinct

    Quora looks to be very promising, but i think it is almost similar to mylot, website, where user gets paid for helping others, starting discussion and doing many more activities.

  • Kedar Nayak
