It’s Neil Patel here for another Q and A Thursday. I’m here with Adam from https://viewership.com/.
This one if from Trending America’s News Collection, “Hi Neil, can you share how to generate traffic from Quora?”
0:50 The first way to generate traffic from Quora is you go and you look for every single person who is asking questions related to your industry and you answer them.
1:45 Do searches on Quora related to keywords within your industry, you wanna then go and answer each question. By answering each question, you’ll build up authority and you’ll grow in popularity. That’s what we first started doing, that was our first test. We didn’t generate any traffic but we’re generating branding and that did generate some leads but not enough.
2:30 My team, which knows my content, they went and they took blog posts and they took the snippets or the excerpts that were very relevant that answered the questions, link to them, or not linked to them, they took it, they put them on Quora and they linked over back to the blog whenever it made sense and that strategy worked amazingly well.
3:00 We found that works the best is copying and pasting content from your blog that already answers a question and linking back. Plus, adding in unique content just for the Quora audience, it doesn’t have to be a lot, like just a few sentences, you combine both of those, link back and you do that consistently, you’ll get a ton of traffic.
4:00 That’s the strategy to get a ton of traffic from Quora, works well, you’re not gonna make millions of dollars from Quora and if you don’t wanna take the time responding or taking your blog content and repurposing it on Quora, you can just do ads on Quora, that works as well. It’s not the highest ROI but it works, it works better to drive more content awareness than driving direct sales from Quora but you can also do the pay for play model.
4:30 I just find with a community, it’s just the more you give, the more you get. And when you spam and I mean, my company has forums and things like that and sometimes we get spammers and what happens? We want them out so if you can add value, legitimate value, and obviously Neil wasn’t spamming, he was actually giving good value, just not the way that they wanted. If you give good value, you get that juice in return, they’ll give that to you so, something to keep in mind with any of these community sites, even on YouTube comments, anything like that, y’kno on Neil’s channels sometimes we see people leaving links just to spam and try to get traffic.
5:00 I go through, moderating the comments and the most common one is a group of people, I don’t know who they are, talking about this Instagram tool to get more followers, like that’s the biggest spam comment that we get on YouTube, not on Facebook or anywhere else, this is just YouTube. But, yeah, no one wants a spam so it’s like add value, if you don’t add value, you’re just gonna get blocked, deleted and people aren’t gonna put up with you.
5:20 If you have a question that you want us to answer on next week, leave a comment below, we’ll do our best, maybe you’ll get included, either way, I’ll respond to your comment below and if you enjoyed this video, like it comment, share, tell other people about it, subscribe to the channel.
