I've been a fan of the website since the early days. I remember when LinkedIn actually canceled their answers feature and merged it into Quora.
Originally I set out to use Quora to generate traffic for my articles here on this blog, but in June I read The Art and Business of Writing Online and realized that it actually had a greater purpose:
Quora provides a platform where I can write often and in a short format in order to get feedback on what works and what people are interested in.
I waited a while before publishing this because I didn't take many actions on the platform, but here is my progress to date.
- 10 answers
- Removed non-targeted answers
- Got into a grove with my structure: Empathize, story/value, lead-on
- Listened to a podcast from Casey Hill, Quora Pro
- 29 answers added
- Tried using PhantomBuster to follow 400 people.
- Most turned out to be bots. 1 person followed back.
- Unfollowed everyone I followed using PhantomBuster.
- Read The Art and Business of Writing Online by Nicolas Cole. Awesome book.
- Started using story formats for my answers.
- Getting upvotes now.
- Not much activity as I was out of commission with covid and an operation mid-July.
