Before we moving to how to use Quora in an effective ways, let us learn about something about Quora & what it is?
what is Quora
Quora is a continually growing user generated collection of questions and answers. All the questions and answers are created, edited, and organized by the people who use it. While many people use Quora as a resource for research, information, and general interest & some of them use Quora to Âadd and build their social network.
How to use Quora in an Effective Ways
here are the few points in which I had to describe Quora & how to use Quora in an effective ways.
How to Get Setup With Quora
Quora has an exceptionally user-friendly sign-up system. By going to the signup page, you can choose two ways to register: with an email address or via your Facebook or Twitter account. Quora’s policy states that users must use a name “associated” with their real name in order to register.
How to Connect to Other Social Networking Sites
If you choose to register with the site using your Twitter or Facebook account or if you wish to add friends from other networks once registered, you’ll have to complete the following process.
You will have to “allow” Quora to access the information on your Facebook or Twitter account. Once you’ve completed this step, Quora will automatically add your Facebook or Twitter friends to your Quora feed. Quora will only add friends who already use Quora, and will not message contacts who aren’t on the site. You can also connect Quora to your Tumblr or WordPress blog.
How to Ask a Question
The technical aspect of adding a question is easy; simply, type it into the box and press “add question”. But, you don’t just want to write a question; you want to write a good question that’s going to get good high-quality answers. First and foremost, make sure your question is grammatically correct. This isn’t Twitter; you are encouraged to spell “too” with letters, not the number “2”. Not only does Quora insist on this, it also gives you credibility
After the basics of grammatical correctness, there are two main components to a good question: clarity and the potential for open ended answers. Make sure your questions are posed in a way which provides enough information to inform readers. For example, if you’re asking about soccer player Fernando Torres, the question should be phrased to include some general background information: “Why did soccer player Fernando Torres go to a soccer club, Chelsea?”
What about Answers?
Clicking on any question in your feed or search results will open answers submitted by other members, where you can add your own question details, add a comment or even flag a question that may not be appropriate.
In all cases, a good answer should be truthful, authentic, correct and respond directly to the question, as describes by the service. Quora also encourages members to support their answers with outside sources of data or other research, and to keep answers concise and clearly formatted.
Much like Facebook, Quora has an inbox that allows users to send private messages to one another. The main function of the inbox is to communicate with people you have connected with on Quora but you are not your Facebook friends. This is a great networking tool. It also allows you to connect with people of similar interests outside of the question and answer format, but you aren’t forced to add them to your personal network right away.
Quora has an “upvote” “downvote” feature. Simple in execution – you simply press the “up” or “down” button beside an answer – this feature is an essential part of Quora’s operating system. By voting an answer as good – an upvote – or poor – a downvote – it lets users filter answers, allowing the most useful answers to be ranked at the top. This also helps to determine thought leaders.
Create A Blog
Let’s assume that you want to share a few experiences or tutorials on Quora. Instead of creating new questions for each tutorial, you can create a blog, where you can share all your topics, manage them better and check the stats quickly. Like wordpress.com, blogspot.com, tumblr.com, etc. you can create a blog with as a subdomain in quora.com. With the help of Quora, you can also start writing blogs.
To do so, click on your Profile picture > select Blogs > click on Create a Blog > enter blog name, desired URL, and description. You can create bullet points, insert image, link, etc.
Some people often do business marketing for a blog, online business, etc. through Quora. If you are one such person and you want to check the conversation statistics of your questions, answers, posts, etc. Quora allows users to see a detailed report that can be found here: Click on your Profile picture > select Stat. Here, you can set period, content type, etc.
