Why Marketers Should Use Quora ?
Quora is a great way to find out what issues are puzzling your current and potential user base. Use this information to determine the direction of future content.
It’s possible to get addicted to Quora and lose valuable time. This in turn can lead to severe procrastination.
“Knowledge,” you thought was knowledge could be lies without research.
Benefits for businesses on Pinterest
it’s actually a search engine, not social media. Pinterest can be a great way to market and grow your business, but only if you’re using it right. Pinterest is an excellent tool to help increase links back to your website, which, in turn, drives more traffic. It is more effective at steering traffic back to a website more than any other social media source.
Many businesses using Pinterest for marketing are making mistakes that can actually work against them.
SEO: Pinterest is a visual search engine which means there are lots of opportunities to optimize for the searches being conducted on Pinterest.
Poor content. You need CREATIVITY, a lot. Pins must be with rich content.
Profile, bad description, no keywords.
Pinterest Board names: I recommend to search your keywords and not use funny words.
Pinterest boards: Pinterest board descriptions allow for a maximum of 500 characters.
Pinterest board descriptions, A must, insert your keywords.
Not using Hashtags #
Use keywords on your pin
PIN / Images with red color tones get shared the most. The researchers found that blue, green, black, yellow-green, and yellow all had negative effects when it came to getting shared. The absolute worst performers were black and white images.
Fonts: When using a script font, use lowercase letters, watch the spacing between each letter.
Add your URL to the pin: This is a basic step in branding your Pinterest pin images and owning that graphic. Pins get stolen all the time, and you’ll be happy your pin has your URL on it if it happens to you
My experience is that you cannot get 10,000 or 100,000 viewers/followers in a very short period, but if your content is good, with good quality and if you remain consistent in the quality of information you provide the Quora community and good quality of Pins, you’re well on your way there.
