Can you earn money by answering Quora questions

Can you earn money by answering Quora questions?


I have been here for 15 months.

I have answered over 2000 questions so far.

Not a single person, not a single follower has given me a single rupee so far.

And neither has Quora paid me anything to answer questions here.

I don’t think anyone is making any money by answering questions here.

Our rewards are the satisfaction we get, the upvotes on good answers and the friendly comments that some readers post after reading our posts.

If you like this answer, please post an acknowledgement and tell us so.

If you are not satisfied, please ignore this answer.

You can keep any money that you may have thought of giving me.

Earning money by answering on Quora.

Yes yes why not .

Start giving answer on Quora.
On topic you have most knowledge .

Daily write minimum 10 answers and try to get minimum 10k upvote and 200k view.

Now monetize your answer .

Sound hard and long process.

Now let comes to reality even you get 1 million views you cannot earn money just by answering question .

Quora is not made for giving answer and making money.

If you want some platform where you give amswer and earn money then go for Chegg .

Chegg give you money for answering 1 approved answer.

You can google and know the rule.

But Quora is Quora .

Quora is Not Chegg.
People Here come to find the answer for the question they had in mind.

It’s a place of sharing knowledge.

Now one had started using Quora because they want to earn money.

Quora was introduced to me by one of my friend and seeing this that people are genuinely answering your question And ypu cam give answer .
I was just get fascinated by it and i made my account there .

But never thought of making money by giving answer .

But after reading Crushing it ! I had came to know many things about Personal Brand.

So i think you cannot make money by answering question.
But you can make a image , a picture in front of people and can used that for earning Money.

I don’t know how , you have to figured it out.
As i never thought about earning through Quora i don’t know how to do.

I just know this .
I am here to learning new thing , reading people story, success, failure , there experience , thought.
And even sharing mine.

So let it be that way .

There are many ways for making money you can find it on my other answer , but none will give you a way to Earn money by answering on Quora.

Share your knowledge , experience, success story and be ready to learn new things but not think of earning money.

Thanks.

So my answer is yes, Quora can be used for earning money.
I am sure lots of people knows the concept of viral marketing/ social marketing.

So the question is HOW WE CAN MAKE MONEY USING QUORA?
So what are you waiting for, think how can you increase your stuffs and follower so that your answers can be viewed by massive crowd and your pocket is full.

“Think Rich, Grow Rich”


Why would I choose Quora for earning money whilst there are so many other websites where we can directly earn money without answering any answers.

I starting using Quora not to see if anybody earns money here or how can I earn money, but the sole reason was to learn, to get knowledge and to share information.
( If I have some lol)
Also, I have seen many top viewed answers here who get lakhs of views for their contribution but haven't seen any answer where they have mentioned about their blogs, asking donations or any other forms to earn money.
They do it to build a name for themselves, to satisfy their inner mind and to get people's support.

The satisfaction you get when your answer reaches 100 views, 1000 views, 5000views or 1–10–50-more upvotes is something which we cannot express.
(I've just started writing on Quora so have got only these many views on my profile.
I do not wish to cite examples of others views/upvotes)
Even while writing the answer for this, I have no thought of money but hoping to get views, upvotes or suggestions to improve myself.

However, there are few people who write answers and asks the followers to follow their blog for more.
It might be good if used only when needed but flooding the answers with links is something which angers me.

This is Quora, let it be Quora and not next money making platform.


No, Quora does not pay for answers.
Silly enough they pay for questions.
Get enough views on your stupid, inflammatory and insincere questions and you can actually make a decent payday.
My Quora Partners Program notifications love to remind me that some people made well over $2000 last moth asking useless questions that riled up enough people to get hundreds of answers and hundreds of thousands of views, while my questions have managed to net me a lifetime earnings of under a dollar.

“You should get on spamming questions about everything from ‘should I beat my child if they play my video game save?’ to ‘I stole a car, should I return it?’ to ‘my boyfriend beats me, does that mean he loves me?’ so you can get in on this bonanza!” seems to be the message they are peddling.
Or I suppose I could try writing a bot that asks every variation of “what is X+Y?” and “is so and so your favorite celebrity?” so I can have all the google search results covered.

The QPP was recently changed to emphasize traffic that comes in from off site, so optimizing for that search result ranking is going to be key moving forwards.
This pretty clearly shows that this program is not about building and maintaining a strong and loyal user base, but rather looking to optimize getting largest number of raw eyeballs to look at the site at least once.
And honestly with the quality of junk this program has fostered once is probably the best they can hope for, as my queue is getting more and more full of spam content that would make the trollish denizens at Yahoo! Answers throw their hands up in exasperation.

Anyway, I hope this answers your question.
If you see the QPP as as big a problem as most of us long-time writers and community members head on over to the QPP topic and voice your displeasure in whatever way seems most appropriate.
It is probably about as effective as screaming at the wind but at least the rest of us will know we are not totally alone.


No, I don’t quite yet.
But I would expect to do so in a couple of years.

Besides the great feeling of self-appreciation that I have when I receive upvotes on my answers, I can safely assume that if I manage to build some sort of authority in my domain by giving the right answers I will ultimately make a lot of money from it.

And I am saying this because I have seen others doing it! Yes, there are a lot of people who make A HUGE LOAD of money through Quora.

Pay attention though, I said THROUGH and not ON.

That’s because Quora is a platform where people share their knowledge to make the world a better informed place.
So, it’s not directly rewarding people for doing so, as it relies on people genuine desire to educate others.

However, I know many top bloggers, influencers that make money thanks to their activities on Quora.

How? I am going to explain you! It’s pretty simple.

If your answers are really well put, you will start to gain authority and people will come to you directly to know more.
That’s when you can turn them into your customers, since they will be more willing to pay you cash for your services!
However, if you don’t want to invest time and energies for something that can only pay off 6 or 12 months down the line , there is a similar platform where you can actually make money from the very start.
This platform is called Superble
Superble rewards you for recommending the products you love and sharing your experiences.
It’s extremely straightforward, as people go there to find quick answers to their questions about specific products they are interested in (whether it’s in beauty, fashion, sports, tech.
.
.
You name it!)


Edit: I misread the question.
But I like my answer anyway.

Correct.

The Quora Partner Program ( QPP) compensates QPP members for questions.
Very recently, QPP pays more for relatively helpful questions (thank you, Quora).

We are not financially compensated for writing answers.

(I was about to go on about all the other ways we’re compensated.
Ya know – with appreciation, upvotes.
witty comments, houseguests, salt water taffy, cute puppy pictures, shares, coffee invitations, and such.
But- did you hear about those terrible, horrible, insanely annoying people who write essays and diatribes and just too many fucking words when a simple declarative statement would suffice.
Too many fucking words!! OMG.
I want no part of those… (cough) writers.
And so I shall stop.
Right after this.
Do you know my recovery from ankle surgery is way, way longer and far, far worse than expected? Eleventy seven days now.
I spent hours yesterday carefully collaging my ankle surgery ( graphic procedure pictures, my cast, a witty thing about orphan socks, super cute clip art and everything!) and was *this close* to proudly posting “my wordless story” when (wait for it….
) my indefatigable, invincible, unfucking believablywonderful Mac got sick.
I know, right? Feverish, sluggish, foggy, confused SO SO sick.
And this morning, the nice people at Apple support <well, the first rep said they could not provide support to this old thing – the machine – not me- but chat disconnected ((I swear I had nothing to do with that)) and the new agent leaped to my/our rescue> logged on to trouble-shoot , and POOF- the illness was gone.
GONE.
I know, right? I hate when that happens.
You read my mind- yep-just like when your car stops that horrific, ear-splitting noise as you enter the service bay.
Hey – wait- that’s sorta weird.
Maybe ironic.
I’m never sure about that word.
But no, rain on your wedding day? Not ironic.
But anyways… Jim’s 215k mile CRV broke down on his way home today.
Thankfully, last night, his sister sent him home with blankets and snacks and all sorts of stuff smart people keep in their car for winter breakdowns.
She really is lovely.
And smart.
And a Duke Duchess! If only her brilliant little brother left the stuff in the car.
But, noooo.
I found it on the kitchen counter today after he drove off.
Into more snow.
And broke down.
Idjit.
I mean, poor, poor beloved shivering idjit.
Whelp, the frozen warrior just got home.
I have to stop for now.
I’ll be back tomorrow to help fight the good fight against whatever (whomever) we were just railing against)


Let me continue where Gopalkrishna Vishwanath ended.
.

I’ve been here almost a year as well.
Even though I’ve written just about 420 odd answers, I think I’ve seen enough to confirm that Quora does NOT pay anyone anything.

This is a free knowledge sharing website where people post opinions, share thoughts, answer scientific questions to a high degree of accuracy, etc.
There’s absolutely no money involved.

However, Quora does come up with Knowledge Prizes, ranging from about $200 to $1000 or more, where you are allowed to share your thoughts and win some money if Quora feels your answer is the best from a pool of answers.

Now, several major publishing houses such as The Huffington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, Forbes Magazine, Slate (magazine), Inc Magazine, etc.
lurks around silently within the walls of Quora.
Searching.
Seeking.
If your answers are well composed, articulate, and really stand out from the rest, you stand a real good chance of getting published in one of these majors, and they might even pay you some money for you article.

Right, there’s another way to this.

If your words are crisp and your thoughts lucid, chances are people would take notice and might invite you as a guest speaker somewhere, a corporate/life/sport coach, a teacher, etc.
All these might help you make some money too.

Well, so far, I’ve been invited to give a TEDx talk at MSRIT, Bangalore, and also to give a talk at a student’s training workshop organised by the American Society for Mechanical Engineers, at Manipal Institute of Technology.

All through Quora!
No money involved in either of these events, so I’m still broke! But you get the point, right?


This is possible.
Making money with Quora is doable.

If you want to make money by answering questions on Quora, you'd want to aim for content.
Quality content.
And then follow these goals:
Grow a following
You'd want to grow your audience in Quora.
You can do this by actively upvoting answers, following influencers, answering questions that your audience would get value from.

Catch attention
You don't want to waste earned followers.
Always post valuable content.
Hook them with attention grabbing answers or headlines.

Pound them with valuable insights, feed their curiosity.
Important: do this regularly.
You're making a huge mistake of doing this sporadically.

Aim for conversion
You grabbed their attention? Good.
But it doesn't end here.
Don't waste your opportunity to pitch your product or service here.

Sprinkle elements of conversion in your answers.
Answers that hint or lead to your niche.

Run the show
Refer your audience.
Link them to your website.
This could be part of your answer.

I see answers with footers that link to another site or blog.

The goal is to lead them to your show.
Which is my next point.

Drive traffic
The ultimate goal is to drive more traffic to your site, blog, or funnel because traffic will bolster your income by bringing you potential customers.

In turn, more earnings for you.

I don't think Quora will pay you for your answers.
(Or it's just me because of my cringing answers) But using Quora to grow your following will help you achieve your goal.

Traffic is the main objective of using manifold avenues for businesses.
Quora is one.

And Quora is a clever route to take.
Not only you would enjoy growing your audience, but also helping fellow Quorans get their answers.


No, we don’t.
In fact, it’s strictly prohibited in our user agreement.

Some people do find creative ways to reference their own published works or to refer to other sources.
And some answerers might have an affiliate relationship with a vendor or gain a little bit when they drive traffic to a particular site (we’re talking about token amounts here).
But self-promotion is prohibited, so it would have to be on the side (more incidental than intentional), and links and referrals in answers have to actually contribute to the answer, not be a veiled attempt to siphon off traffic elsewhere.

Most of us who write on Quora love knowledge and know our subject areas well and enjoy sharing what we know with those who want to know.
The biggest value I get from writing on Quora is the satisfaction that I’m helping others understand my subject areas better…and helping to prevent misunderstanding and confusion.

It would be hard to ensure neutrality and legitimacy if we made money writing answers, because when profit becomes a motive, people do and say all kinds of stupid things.
And then there’s the issue that people would start caring more about the money than about writing a quality answer, so that profit motive begins to undermine credibility.

There are some intangible benefits, too, like reputation or prestige…or the ability to reference your Quora answers elsewhere.

But making money? No.
Not here.

– – – – –
UPDATE (10/17/18): I recently learned that Quora has introduced a partner program that “rewards members of the program for asking engaging, thoughtful questions[1](NOTE: That’s questions, not answers).
I was unaware of that, but I have definitely noticed in the last year a substantial increase in the quantity of both troll questions (where they’re trying to provoke a response or argue a point masquerading as a question) and insincere questions (where it’s a legitimate question, but you can tell from the wording the person asking it isn’t actually dealing with the issue personally – it’s posed hypothetically and insincerely).
These are often especially difficult to respond to since it’s a purely hypothetical scenario and lacks the real-world context that in many fields is very necessary for providing a good answer.
I think this only underscores my point further: With money incentivizing the writing, the quality and authenticity of the questions has suffered noticeably, which makes me all the more glad they don’t pay for answers.


Quora is a knowledge sharing platform.
If you have any question on any topic and are searching for a number of relevant answers to it, then quora is the destination.

People are answering here not for earning anything.
But,for sharing information on what they know and want others to know as well.

So,I don’t think anybody is getting paid for their answers here.

This is what their tag line says “ The best answer to any question” and it is really impressive.
So,if you have any genuine questions on different topics, you will get a whole lot of great answers from various experts in the relevant fields here.

There might be certain irritating questions as well,but keeping them aside,you can gather the best that you want.

Nobody is getting paid for sharing their views here whether your answers are in the form of :
We are here to share some information that can help others in some way or the other.
Although,there are “Knowledge prizes” on few questions but all are not lucky enough to grab that.
If there is any other mode, at least I am not aware of it.

So,keep reading and keep enjoying and most importantly,add to your knowledge all for free.


Not directly.

But more and more people are finding ways to monetise their activity here—writing books and advertising them on Quora, putting books together based on their material from Quora, pushing their courses, workshops, advice and coaching skills and so forth.

I don't begrudge them this, most people who do this have invested a huge amount of time and effort in writing on Quora.

Others have found work through Quora contacts—writing, copyediting, advising and so forth.

I believe that a couple of the most popular writers on here have opened patreon accounts.

Others have moved to Medium, and advertised their Medium content on Quora.

Quora doesn't particularly like this, and in theory you aren't allowed to advertise on Quora.
But when the adverts are via additional Quora content, and it gets them clicks, upvotes and shares, they don't care too much.
Quora is not Wikipedia, they're here to make money.

The “problem” here is that most of these strategies necessitate building up a reader base.
If you want to sell a few hundred books, you need a few tens of thousands of followers.

Building up a reader base on Quora is difficult for new writers.
New writers usually struggle to break into feeds, which are already somewhat glutted with the “big names” of Quora.
Quora's social media algorithms give precedence to popular content, which thereby becomes more popular, and it's difficult to shine in this sea of answers and blogs.


Quora will not pay you.
But You can make money by posting answers on quora.
You just need to give full description about the website VisitL.
ink
.

The following details are for you and also for describing others to make money.

What is the description ?
How to start?
Do signup at visitl.
ink
? Get any links link movie download links, YouTube video links, Software download links,…etc.

make them short at visitl.
ink
and share them on Facebook, Twitter, …etc.
You can also scan the QR code from your mobile and share it on WhatsApp, SnapChat,…etc

This way there will be many clicks on the shared links.
The more will the clicks, the more you will earn money.

If you are Amazon Assosiate, you can get the affiliate link to any product and make them short and share them to many social media sites.

If you have YouTube channel, You can promote your video by sharing shorted video links and also you will make money.

Its all about s Short → Share → make money.

Just post this Description for the answers to the question “How to make money on Quora ” or some thing like that.

You will get your payment when it reaches up to the minimum threshold amount $5 through PayPal.



You don’t can earn money from Quora directly, but it can help you a lot of money!
How can you earn money from Quora?
Best Regards


There is no direct source of earning with Quora but indirectly you can earn a lot with Quora.

There is no limit of earning on Internet
I have seen people earning 500$ /day check out my article on it
Things to Remember-


Quora is no place for earning but hey hang on, if you think you write good then there are some websites where you can earn money for your skillful writing.


Although Craig Good has given the best answer to your question, i would like to add a few points assuming you never violated any rule and your use of English flaw was not pointed out.
Here are a few ways you could make money on Quora:


Some Intelligent & smart people get paid ! & No,you can't have any of it !
Let that sink in for a moment while i grab my coffee:-)
Lets look at it this way….

See the difference between these ?
Another thought : Does Quora allow direct selling, marketing , merchandising or promotion from writers / authors ? NO
But if you observe closely ….
.
there are people / people owning companies
answering relentlessly on subjects like :
Over a period of time [Let's say hard work of 1- 2 years] when you and your answers become :
You have an audience , a base , a viewership and people who look upto you for inspiration, suggestions , life-advice and tons of questions.

How would anyone exploit this ?
Remember 2 points if you’d really wanna burn your fingers here and earn money
Cheers!

All through Quora!
No money involved in either of these events, so I’m still broke! But you get the point, right?


This is possible.
Making money with Quora is doable.

If you want to make money by answering questions on Quora, you'd want to aim for content.
Quality content.
And then follow these goals:
Grow a following
You'd want to grow your audience in Quora.
You can do this by actively upvoting answers, following influencers, answering questions that your audience would get value from.

Catch attention
You don't want to waste earned followers.
Always post valuable content.
Hook them with attention grabbing answers or headlines.

Pound them with valuable insights, feed their curiosity.
Important: do this regularly.
You're making a huge mistake of doing this sporadically.

Aim for conversion
You grabbed their attention? Good.
But it doesn't end here.
Don't waste your opportunity to pitch your product or service here.

Sprinkle elements of conversion in your answers.
Answers that hint or lead to your niche.

Run the show
Refer your audience.
Link them to your website.
This could be part of your answer.

I see answers with footers that link to another site or blog.

The goal is to lead them to your show.
Which is my next point.

Drive traffic
The ultimate goal is to drive more traffic to your site, blog, or funnel because traffic will bolster your income by bringing you potential customers.

In turn, more earnings for you.

I don't think Quora will pay you for your answers.
(Or it's just me because of my cringing answers) But using Quora to grow your following will help you achieve your goal.

Traffic is the main objective of using manifold avenues for businesses.
Quora is one.

And Quora is a clever route to take.
Not only you would enjoy growing your audience, but also helping fellow Quorans get their answers.


No, we don’t.
In fact, it’s strictly prohibited in our user agreement.

Some people do find creative ways to reference their own published works or to refer to other sources.
And some answerers might have an affiliate relationship with a vendor or gain a little bit when they drive traffic to a particular site (we’re talking about token amounts here).
But self-promotion is prohibited, so it would have to be on the side (more incidental than intentional), and links and referrals in answers have to actually contribute to the answer, not be a veiled attempt to siphon off traffic elsewhere.

Most of us who write on Quora love knowledge and know our subject areas well and enjoy sharing what we know with those who want to know.
The biggest value I get from writing on Quora is the satisfaction that I’m helping others understand my subject areas better…and helping to prevent misunderstanding and confusion.

It would be hard to ensure neutrality and legitimacy if we made money writing answers, because when profit becomes a motive, people do and say all kinds of stupid things.
And then there’s the issue that people would start caring more about the money than about writing a quality answer, so that profit motive begins to undermine credibility.

There are some intangible benefits, too, like reputation or prestige…or the ability to reference your Quora answers elsewhere.

But making money? No.
Not here.

UPDATE (10/17/18): I recently learned that Quora has introduced a partner program that “rewards members of the program for asking engaging, thoughtful questions[1](NOTE: That’s questions, not answers).
I was unaware of that, but I have definitely noticed in the last year a substantial increase in the quantity of both troll questions (where they’re trying to provoke a response or argue a point masquerading as a question) and insincere questions (where it’s a legitimate question, but you can tell from the wording the person asking it isn’t actually dealing with the issue personally – it’s posed hypothetically and insincerely).
These are often especially difficult to respond to since it’s a purely hypothetical scenario and lacks the real-world context that in many fields is very necessary for providing a good answer.
I think this only underscores my point further: With money incentivizing the writing, the quality and authenticity of the questions has suffered noticeably, which makes me all the more glad they don’t pay for answers.


Quora is a knowledge sharing platform.
If you have any question on any topic and are searching for a number of relevant answers to it, then quora is the destination.

People are answering here not for earning anything.
But,for sharing information on what they know and want others to know as well.

So,I don’t think anybody is getting paid for their answers here.

This is what their tag line says “ The best answer to any question” and it is really impressive.
So,if you have any genuine questions on different topics, you will get a whole lot of great answers from various experts in the relevant fields here.

There might be certain irritating questions as well,but keeping them aside,you can gather the best that you want.

Nobody is getting paid for sharing their views here whether your answers are in the form of :
We are here to share some information that can help others in some way or the other.
Although,there are “Knowledge prizes” on few questions but all are not lucky enough to grab that.
If there is any other mode, at least I am not aware of it.

So,keep reading and keep enjoying and most importantly,add to your knowledge all for free.


Not directly.

But more and more people are finding ways to monetise their activity here—writing books and advertising them on Quora, putting books together based on their material from Quora, pushing their courses, workshops, advice and coaching skills and so forth.

I don't begrudge them this, most people who do this have invested a huge amount of time and effort in writing on Quora.

Others have found work through Quora contacts—writing, copyediting, advising and so forth.

I believe that a couple of the most popular writers on here have opened patreon accounts.

Others have moved to Medium, and advertised their Medium content on Quora.

Quora doesn't particularly like this, and in theory you aren't allowed to advertise on Quora.
But when the adverts are via additional Quora content, and it gets them clicks, upvotes and shares, they don't care too much.
Quora is not Wikipedia, they're here to make money.

The “problem” here is that most of these strategies necessitate building up a reader base.
If you want to sell a few hundred books, you need a few tens of thousands of followers.

Building up a reader base on Quora is difficult for new writers.
New writers usually struggle to break into feeds, which are already somewhat glutted with the “big names” of Quora.
Quora's social media algorithms give precedence to popular content, which thereby becomes more popular, and it's difficult to shine in this sea of answers and blogs.


Quora will not pay you.
But You can make money by posting answers on quora.
You just need to give full description about the website VisitL.
ink
.

The following details are for you and also for describing others to make money.

What is the description ?
How to start?
Do signup at visitl.
ink
? Get any links link movie download links, YouTube video links, Software download links,…etc.

make them short at visitl.
ink
and share them on Facebook, Twitter, …etc.
You can also scan the QR code from your mobile and share it on WhatsApp, SnapChat,…etc

This way there will be many clicks on the shared links.
The more will the clicks, the more you will earn money.

If you are Amazon Assosiate, you can get the affiliate link to any product and make them short and share them to many social media sites.

If you have YouTube channel, You can promote your video by sharing shorted video links and also you will make money.

Its all about s Short → Share → make money.

Just post this Description for the answers to the question “How to make money on Quora ” or some thing like that.

You will get your payment when it reaches up to the minimum threshold amount $5 through PayPal.



You don’t can earn money from Quora directly, but it can help you a lot of money!
How can you earn money from Quora?
Best Regards


There is no direct source of earning with Quora but indirectly you can earn a lot with Quora.

There is no limit of earning on Internet
I have seen people earning 500$ /day check out my article on it
Things to Remember-


Quora is no place for earning but hey hang on, if you think you write good then there are some websites where you can earn money for your skillful writing.


Although Craig Good has given the best answer to your question, i would like to add a few points assuming you never violated any rule and your use of English flaw was not pointed out.
Here are a few ways you could make money on Quora:


Some Intelligent & smart people get paid ! & No,you can't have any of it !
Let that sink in for a moment while i grab my coffee:-)
Lets look at it this way….

See the difference between these ?
Another thought : Does Quora allow direct selling, marketing , merchandising or promotion from writers / authors ? NO
But if you observe closely ….
.
there are people / people owning companies
answering relentlessly on subjects like :
Over a period of time [Let's say hard work of 1- 2 years] when you and your answers become :
You have an audience , a base , a viewership and people who look upto you for inspiration, suggestions , life-advice and tons of questions.

How would anyone exploit this ?
Remember 2 points if you’d really wanna burn your fingers here and earn money
Cheers!

If you are invited to join Quora’s partner program you can earn some money from generating questions.
If these questions prove to be popular, you can earn a small percentage of the ad revenue generated on the questions.

Some Quora partners earn a good living from asking many questions every day.
I was invited to join the program recently and have earned a small commission from a few questions I have posted.

You can also use Quora to drive traffic to your website, if you are an affiliate, or even if you have your own business.
This can generate traffic, leads and sales.
Affiliate marketers use Quora to generate visitors to their websites by answering questions and linking through to their content.

You can’t link directly to affiliate products however, but you can link to useful information which you might have on a website.

So you can make money from both answering questions and asking them too.


Does sharing a “LOL” meme on Facebook gives you money??
No, but more than a million people were doing it.

Does updating status on WhatsApp gives you money??
No, but again more than a million people were doing it.

Does uploading your recent pic on Instagram gives you money??
No, but again more than a million people were doing it.

Not all the things are done for money.
Quora is one of them.
(
At least until now)

Originally answered for: “Can people make money answering questions on Quora?”
My initial reaction when I saw this question was a big fat “NO”, but I realized that I was looking at it only from a traditional perspective.
A traditional perspective meaning that content creators receive a cut of the ad revenue earnings, or a special “paid-members only” programme (for example, YouTube and Medium).

But then I recalled a job listing that I had come across on Freelancer (Freelancer is an online job portal for freelancers and employers).
The listing stated “Need writer to write 8–9 Quora answers daily” or something along those lines.
As I was aggressively trying to increase my client base, I got into some initial talks with the employer.
But things did not pan out.

Moral of the story: Yes, there are a few indirect methods of earning money by answering questions on Quora, but no direct methods, as of October 2018.
(You can, however, earn money through asking questions, but that is a different issue altogether.
)
Cheers!

Yes, you can make money from quora.
As Quora is home for questions and answers, so you just have to adjust your manner of giving answers.

You have intention of helping and then you help others and they help you.

Personally i with propellerads.
com
making money online from quora.
Here is my daily earning of 2016, which is relatively double now.

To earning money for every question you answered? Do these things and Think like this?
First of all you have to think that you are getting commission for what you write to make quora better.
Yes we make quora as good it is.
cz we are not spammer, we provide the good answers, rank the questions and ask viral questions that drive traffic.

Then why not being part of earnings, so next time not only answer for quora but also for your self.


YES.

After publishing it


Absolutely yes!!!
I can very proudly say that Quora has changed my life tremendously.

Quora is so full of amazing writers.
Every time I read answers of people , my thinking horizon gets broaden up.

Every time someone praises me for any of my answer, the happiness which I experience is beyond words.

Knowledge can only be increased when it is shared, and there is no such platform which can help us to share knowledge to this extent.

In real life we often find people disinterested in other's conversation.
They don't want to listen to others but here people willingly choose to read our stories and whatever we wanna say.
Isn't that amazing??
I definitely get paid for writing answers on quora.
.
in terms of love of all the readers, happiness whenever appreciated or whenever someone finds my answer helpful.
It helps me to utilize my leisure time in the best possible way.

P.
S: well.
.
if you intended to ask for monetary payment, I think all these are way above that.



Well, no one probably earns a single penny or is getting richer by answering questions on Quora.

Despite the number of questions you’ve answered, it makes you no rich economically rather socially.
If your answer seems genuine to viewers, it might help them and you get credits in the form of upvotes and spectators in the form of views.
That, I believe makes you satisfied, feeling that you’ve helped or influenced many without even you knowing them and vice versa.
You see, that’s my point.
And, that is the beauty of this blogging platform.
Although, online popularity might boost your self confidence and compel you to answer more questions but isn’t making you any richer.
But, that makes no difference until you are satisfied with the outcomes of the event.

You can upvote or simply ignore this post just like any other posts, which is neither making me sad nor happy rather content feeling that atleast some of you might view this.
.
And if someday maybe in future, Quora decides to reward dollars to top viewed writers, I would be glad enough and I am probably in the race as well.
😀
Thanks!


Can you earn money by answering Quora questions?


I have been here for 15 months.

I have answered over 2000 questions so far.

Not a single person, not a single follower has given me a single rupee so far.

And neither has Quora paid me anything to answer questions here.

I don’t think anyone is making any money by answering questions here.

Our rewards are the satisfaction we get, the upvotes on good answers and the friendly comments that some readers post after reading our posts.

If you like this answer, please post an acknowledgement and tell us so.

If you are not satisfied, please ignore this answer.

You can keep any money that you may have thought of giving me.

GV


Earning money by answering on Quora.

Yes yes why not .

Start giving answer on Quora.
On topic you have most knowledge .

Daily write minimum 10 answers and try to get minimum 10k upvote and 200k view.

Now monetize your answer .

Sound hard and long process.

Now let comes to reality even you get 1 million views you cannot earn money just by answering question .

Quora is not made for giving answer and making money.

If you want some platform where you give amswer and earn money then go for Chegg .

Chegg give you money for answering 1 approved answer.

You can google and know the rule.

But Quora is Quora .

Quora is Not Chegg.
People Here come to find the answer for the question they had in mind.

It’s a place of sharing knowledge.

Now one had started using Quora because they want to earn money.

Quora was introduced to me by one of my friend and seeing this that people are genuinely answering your question And ypu cam give answer .
I was just get fascinated by it and i made my account there .

But never thought of making money by giving answer .

But after reading Crushing it ! I had came to know many things about Personal Brand.

So i think you cannot make money by answering question.
But you can make a image , a picture in front of people and can used that for earning Money.

I don’t know how , you have to figured it out.
As i never thought about earning through Quora i don’t know how to do.

I just know this .
I am here to learning new thing , reading people story, success, failure , there experience , thought.
And even sharing mine.

So let it be that way .

There are many ways for making money you can find it on my other answer , but none will give you a way to Earn money by answering on Quora.

Share your knowledge , experience, success story and be ready to learn new things but not think of earning money.

Thanks.

So my answer is yes, Quora can be used for earning money.
I am sure lots of people knows the concept of viral marketing/ social marketing.

So the question is HOW WE CAN MAKE MONEY USING QUORA?
So what are you waiting for, think how can you increase your stuffs and follower so that your answers can be viewed by massive crowd and your pocket is full.

“Think Rich, Grow Rich”


Why would I choose Quora for earning money whilst there are so many other websites where we can directly earn money without answering any answers.

I starting using Quora not to see if anybody earns money here or how can I earn money, but the sole reason was to learn, to get knowledge and to share information.
( If I have some lol)
Also, I have seen many top viewed answers here who get lakhs of views for their contribution but haven't seen any answer where they have mentioned about their blogs, asking donations or any other forms to earn money.
They do it to build a name for themselves, to satisfy their inner mind and to get people's support.

The satisfaction you get when your answer reaches 100 views, 1000 views, 5000views or 1–10–50-more upvotes is something which we cannot express.
(I've just started writing on Quora so have got only these many views on my profile.
I do not wish to cite examples of others views/upvotes)
Even while writing the answer for this, I have no thought of money but hoping to get views, upvotes or suggestions to improve myself.

However, there are few people who write answers and asks the followers to follow their blog for more.
It might be good if used only when needed but flooding the answers with links is something which angers me.

This is Quora, let it be Quora and not next money making platform.


No, Quora does not pay for answers.
Silly enough they pay for questions.
Get enough views on your stupid, inflammatory and insincere questions and you can actually make a decent payday.
My Quora Partners Program notifications love to remind me that some people made well over $2000 last moth asking useless questions that riled up enough people to get hundreds of answers and hundreds of thousands of views, while my questions have managed to net me a lifetime earnings of under a dollar.

“You should get on spamming questions about everything from ‘should I beat my child if they play my video game save?’ to ‘I stole a car, should I return it?’ to ‘my boyfriend beats me, does that mean he loves me?’ so you can get in on this bonanza!” seems to be the message they are peddling.
Or I suppose I could try writing a bot that asks every variation of “what is X+Y?” and “is so and so your favorite celebrity?” so I can have all the google search results covered.

The QPP was recently changed to emphasize traffic that comes in from off site, so optimizing for that search result ranking is going to be key moving forwards.
This pretty clearly shows that this program is not about building and maintaining a strong and loyal user base, but rather looking to optimize getting largest number of raw eyeballs to look at the site at least once.
And honestly with the quality of junk this program has fostered once is probably the best they can hope for, as my queue is getting more and more full of spam content that would make the trollish denizens at Yahoo! Answers throw their hands up in exasperation.

Anyway, I hope this answers your question.
If you see the QPP as as big a problem as most of us long-time writers and community members head on over to the QPP topic and voice your displeasure in whatever way seems most appropriate.
It is probably about as effective as screaming at the wind but at least the rest of us will know we are not totally alone.


No, I don’t quite yet.
But I would expect to do so in a couple of years.

Besides the great feeling of self-appreciation that I have when I receive upvotes on my answers, I can safely assume that if I manage to build some sort of authority in my domain by giving the right answers I will ultimately make a lot of money from it.

And I am saying this because I have seen others doing it! Yes, there are a lot of people who make A HUGE LOAD of money through Quora.

Pay attention though, I said THROUGH and not ON.

That’s because Quora is a platform where people share their knowledge to make the world a better informed place.
So, it’s not directly rewarding people for doing so, as it relies on people genuine desire to educate others.

However, I know many top bloggers, influencers that make money thanks to their activities on Quora.

How? I am going to explain you! It’s pretty simple.

If your answers are really well put, you will start to gain authority and people will come to you directly to know more.
That’s when you can turn them into your customers, since they will be more willing to pay you cash for your services!
However, if you don’t want to invest time and energies for something that can only pay off 6 or 12 months down the line , there is a similar platform where you can actually make money from the very start.
This platform is called Superble
Superble rewards you for recommending the products you love and sharing your experiences.
It’s extremely straightforward, as people go there to find quick answers to their questions about specific products they are interested in (whether it’s in beauty, fashion, sports, tech.
.
.
You name it!)


Edit: I misread the question.
But I like my answer anyway.

Correct.

The Quora Partner Program ( QPP) compensates QPP members for questions.
Very recently, QPP pays more for relatively helpful questions (thank you, Quora).

We are not financially compensated for writing answers.

(I was about to go on about all the other ways we’re compensated.
Ya know – with appreciation, upvotes.
witty comments, houseguests, salt water taffy, cute puppy pictures, shares, coffee invitations, and such.
But- did you hear about those terrible, horrible, insanely annoying people who write essays and diatribes and just too many fucking words when a simple declarative statement would suffice.
Too many fucking words!! OMG.
I want no part of those… (cough) writers.
And so I shall stop.
Right after this.
Do you know my recovery from ankle surgery is way, way longer and far, far worse than expected? Eleventy seven days now.
I spent hours yesterday carefully collaging my ankle surgery ( graphic procedure pictures, my cast, a witty thing about orphan socks, super cute clip art and everything!) and was *this close* to proudly posting “my wordless story” when (wait for it….
) my indefatigable, invincible, unfucking believablywonderful Mac got sick.
I know, right? Feverish, sluggish, foggy, confused SO SO sick.
And this morning, the nice people at Apple support <well, the first rep said they could not provide support to this old thing – the machine – not me- but chat disconnected ((I swear I had nothing to do with that)) and the new agent leaped to my/our rescue> logged on to trouble-shoot , and POOF- the illness was gone.
GONE.
I know, right? I hate when that happens.
You read my mind- yep-just like when your car stops that horrific, ear-splitting noise as you enter the service bay.
Hey – wait- that’s sorta weird.
Maybe ironic.
I’m never sure about that word.
But no, rain on your wedding day? Not ironic.
But anyways… Jim’s 215k mile CRV broke down on his way home today.
Thankfully, last night, his sister sent him home with blankets and snacks and all sorts of stuff smart people keep in their car for winter breakdowns.
She really is lovely.
And smart.
And a Duke Duchess! If only her brilliant little brother left the stuff in the car.
But, noooo.
I found it on the kitchen counter today after he drove off.
Into more snow.
And broke down.
Idjit.
I mean, poor, poor beloved shivering idjit.
Whelp, the frozen warrior just got home.
I have to stop for now.
I’ll be back tomorrow to help fight the good fight against whatever (whomever) we were just railing against)


Let me continue where Gopalkrishna Vishwanath ended.
.

I’ve been here almost a year as well.
Even though I’ve written just about 420 odd answers, I think I’ve seen enough to confirm that Quora does NOT pay anyone anything.

This is a free knowledge sharing website where people post opinions, share thoughts, answer scientific questions to a high degree of accuracy, etc.
There’s absolutely no money involved.

However, Quora does come up with Knowledge Prizes, ranging from about $200 to $1000 or more, where you are allowed to share your thoughts and win some money if Quora feels your answer is the best from a pool of answers.

com/prizes

Now, several major publishing houses such as The Huffington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, Forbes Magazine, Slate (magazine), Inc Magazine, etc.
lurks around silently within the walls of Quora.
Searching.
Seeking.
If your answers are well composed, articulate, and really stand out from the rest, you stand a real good chance of getting published in one of these majors, and they might even pay you some money for you article.

Right, there’s another way to this.

If your words are crisp and your thoughts lucid, chances are people would take notice and might invite you as a guest speaker somewhere, a corporate/life/sport coach, a teacher, etc.
All these might help you make some money too.

Well, so far, I’ve been invited to give a TEDx talk at MSRIT, Bangalore, and also to give a talk at a student’s training workshop organised by the American Society for Mechanical Engineers, at Manipal Institute of Technology.

All through Quora!
No money involved in either of these events, so I’m still broke! But you get the point, right?

Quora is not Wikipedia, they're here to make money.

The “problem” here is that most of these strategies necessitate building up a reader base.
If you want to sell a few hundred books, you need a few tens of thousands of followers.

Building up a reader base on Quora is difficult for new writers.
New writers usually struggle to break into feeds, which are already somewhat glutted with the “big names” of Quora.
Quora's social media algorithms give precedence to popular content, which thereby becomes more popular, and it's difficult to shine in this sea of answers and blogs.

If you are invited to join Quora’s partner program you can earn some money from generating questions.
If these questions prove to be popular, you can earn a small percentage of the ad revenue generated on the questions.

Some Quora partners earn a good living from asking many questions every day.
I was invited to join the program recently and have earned a small commission from a few questions I have posted.

You can also use Quora to drive traffic to your website, if you are an affiliate, or even if you have your own business.
This can generate traffic, leads and sales.
Affiliate marketers use Quora to generate visitors to their websites by answering questions and linking through to their content.

You can’t link directly to affiliate products however, but you can link to useful information which you might have on a website.

So you can make money from both answering questions and asking them too.


Does sharing a “LOL” meme on Facebook gives you money??
No, but more than a million people were doing it.

Does updating status on WhatsApp gives you money??
No, but again more than a million people were doing it.

Does uploading your recent pic on Instagram gives you money??
No, but again more than a million people were doing it.

Not all the things are done for money.
Quora is one of them.

Originally answered for: “Can people make money answering questions on Quora?”
My initial reaction when I saw this question was a big fat “NO”, but I realized that I was looking at it only from a traditional perspective.
A traditional perspective meaning that content creators receive a cut of the ad revenue earnings, or a special “paid-members only” programme (for example, YouTube and Medium).

But then I recalled a job listing that I had come across on Freelancer (Freelancer is an online job portal for freelancers and employers).
The listing stated “Need writer to write 8–9 Quora answers daily” or something along those lines.
As I was aggressively trying to increase my client base, I got into some initial talks with the employer.
But things did not pan out.

Moral of the story: Yes, there are a few indirect methods of earning money by answering questions on Quora, but no direct methods, as of October 2018.
(You can, however, earn money through asking questions, but that is a different issue altogether.

Can you earn money by answering Quora questions?


I have been here for 15 months.

I have answered over 2000 questions so far.

Not a single person, not a single follower has given me a single rupee so far.

And neither has Quora paid me anything to answer questions here.

Earning money by answering on Quora.

Yes yes why not .

Start giving answer on Quora.
On topic you have most knowledge .

Daily write minimum 10 answers and try to get minimum 10k upvote and 200k view.

Now monetize your answer .

Sound hard and long process.

Now let comes to reality even you get 1 million views you cannot earn money just by answering question .

Quora is not made for giving answer and making money.

If you want some platform where you give amswer and earn money then go for Chegg .

Chegg give you money for answering 1 approved answer.

You can google and know the rule.

But Quora is Quora .

Quora is Not Chegg.
People Here come to find the answer for the question they had in mind.

It’s a place of sharing knowledge.

Now one had started using Quora because they want to earn money.

Quora was introduced to me by one of my friend and seeing this that people are genuinely answering your question And ypu cam give answer .
I was just get fascinated by it and i made my account there .

But never thought of making money by giving answer .

But after reading Crushing it ! I had came to know many things about Personal Brand.

So i think you cannot make money by answering question.
But you can make a image , a picture in front of people and can used that for earning Money.

I don’t know how , you have to figured it out.
As i never thought about earning through Quora i don’t know how to do.

I just know this .
I am here to learning new thing , reading people story, success, failure , there experience , thought.
And even sharing mine.

So let it be that way .

There are many ways for making money you can find it on my other answer , but none will give you a way to Earn money by answering on Quora.

Share your knowledge , experience, success story and be ready to learn new things but not think of earning money.

Thanks.

So my answer is yes, Quora can be used for earning money.
I am sure lots of people knows the concept of viral marketing/ social marketing.

So the question is HOW WE CAN MAKE MONEY USING QUORA?
So what are you waiting for, think how can you increase your stuffs and follower so that your answers can be viewed by massive crowd and your pocket is full.

“Think Rich, Grow Rich”


Why would I choose Quora for earning money whilst there are so many other websites where we can directly earn money without answering any answers.

I starting using Quora not to see if anybody earns money here or how can I earn money, but the sole reason was to learn, to get knowledge and to share information.
( If I have some lol)
Also, I have seen many top viewed answers here who get lakhs of views for their contribution but haven't seen any answer where they have mentioned about their blogs, asking donations or any other forms to earn money.
They do it to build a name for themselves, to satisfy their inner mind and to get people's support.

The satisfaction you get when your answer reaches 100 views, 1000 views, 5000views or 1–10–50-more upvotes is something which we cannot express.
(I've just started writing on Quora so have got only these many views on my profile.
I do not wish to cite examples of others views/upvotes)
Even while writing the answer for this, I have no thought of money but hoping to get views, upvotes or suggestions to improve myself.

However, there are few people who write answers and asks the followers to follow their blog for more.
It might be good if used only when needed but flooding the answers with links is something which angers me.

This is Quora, let it be Quora and not next money making platform.


No, Quora does not pay for answers.
Silly enough they pay for questions.
Get enough views on your stupid, inflammatory and insincere questions and you can actually make a decent payday.
My Quora Partners Program notifications love to remind me that some people made well over $2000 last moth asking useless questions that riled up enough people to get hundreds of answers and hundreds of thousands of views, while my questions have managed to net me a lifetime earnings of under a dollar.

“You should get on spamming questions about everything from ‘should I beat my child if they play my video game save?’ to ‘I stole a car, should I return it?’ to ‘my boyfriend beats me, does that mean he loves me?’ so you can get in on this bonanza!” seems to be the message they are peddling.
Or I suppose I could try writing a bot that asks every variation of “what is X+Y?” and “is so and so your favorite celebrity?” so I can have all the google search results covered.

The QPP was recently changed to emphasize traffic that comes in from off site, so optimizing for that search result ranking is going to be key moving forwards.
This pretty clearly shows that this program is not about building and maintaining a strong and loyal user base, but rather looking to optimize getting largest number of raw eyeballs to look at the site at least once.
And honestly with the quality of junk this program has fostered once is probably the best they can hope for, as my queue is getting more and more full of spam content that would make the trollish denizens at Yahoo! Answers throw their hands up in exasperation.

Anyway, I hope this answers your question.
If you see the QPP as as big a problem as most of us long-time writers and community members head on over to the QPP topic and voice your displeasure in whatever way seems most appropriate.
It is probably about as effective as screaming at the wind but at least the rest of us will know we are not totally alone.


No, I don’t quite yet.
But I would expect to do so in a couple of years.

Besides the great feeling of self-appreciation that I have when I receive upvotes on my answers, I can safely assume that if I manage to build some sort of authority in my domain by giving the right answers I will ultimately make a lot of money from it.

And I am saying this because I have seen others doing it! Yes, there are a lot of people who make A HUGE LOAD of money through Quora.

Pay attention though, I said THROUGH and not ON.

That’s because Quora is a platform where people share their knowledge to make the world a better informed place.
So, it’s not directly rewarding people for doing so, as it relies on people genuine desire to educate others.

However, I know many top bloggers, influencers that make money thanks to their activities on Quora.

How? I am going to explain you! It’s pretty simple.

If your answers are really well put, you will start to gain authority and people will come to you directly to know more.
That’s when you can turn them into your customers, since they will be more willing to pay you cash for your services!
However, if you don’t want to invest time and energies for something that can only pay off 6 or 12 months down the line , there is a similar platform where you can actually make money from the very start.
This platform is called Superble
Superble rewards you for recommending the products you love and sharing your experiences.
It’s extremely straightforward, as people go there to find quick answers to their questions about specific products they are interested in (whether it’s in beauty, fashion, sports, tech.
.
.
You name it!)


Edit: I misread the question.
But I like my answer anyway.

Correct.

The Quora Partner Program ( QPP) compensates QPP members for questions.
Very recently, QPP pays more for relatively helpful questions (thank you, Quora).

We are not financially compensated for writing answers.

(I was about to go on about all the other ways we’re compensated.
Ya know – with appreciation, upvotes.
witty comments, houseguests, salt water taffy, cute puppy pictures, shares, coffee invitations, and such.
But- did you hear about those terrible, horrible, insanely annoying people who write essays and diatribes and just too many fucking words when a simple declarative statement would suffice.
Too many fucking words!! OMG.
I want no part of those… (cough) writers.
And so I shall stop.
Right after this.
Do you know my recovery from ankle surgery is way, way longer and far, far worse than expected? Eleventy seven days now.
I spent hours yesterday carefully collaging my ankle surgery ( graphic procedure pictures, my cast, a witty thing about orphan socks, super cute clip art and everything!) and was *this close* to proudly posting “my wordless story” when (wait for it….
) my indefatigable, invincible, unfucking believablywonderful Mac got sick.
I know, right? Feverish, sluggish, foggy, confused SO SO sick.
And this morning, the nice people at Apple support <well, the first rep said they could not provide support to this old thing – the machine – not me- but chat disconnected ((I swear I had nothing to do with that)) and the new agent leaped to my/our rescue> logged on to trouble-shoot , and POOF- the illness was gone.
GONE.
I know, right? I hate when that happens.
You read my mind- yep-just like when your car stops that horrific, ear-splitting noise as you enter the service bay.
Hey – wait- that’s sorta weird.
Maybe ironic.
I’m never sure about that word.
But no, rain on your wedding day? Not ironic.
But anyways… Jim’s 215k mile CRV broke down on his way home today.
Thankfully, last night, his sister sent him home with blankets and snacks and all sorts of stuff smart people keep in their car for winter breakdowns.
She really is lovely.
And smart.
And a Duke Duchess! If only her brilliant little brother left the stuff in the car.
But, noooo.
I found it on the kitchen counter today after he drove off.
Into more snow.
And broke down.
Idjit.
I mean, poor, poor beloved shivering idjit.
Whelp, the frozen warrior just got home.
I have to stop for now.
I’ll be back tomorrow to help fight the good fight against whatever (whomever) we were just railing against)


Let me continue where Gopalkrishna Vishwanath ended.
.

I’ve been here almost a year as well.
Even though I’ve written just about 420 odd answers, I think I’ve seen enough to confirm that Quora does NOT pay anyone anything.

This is a free knowledge sharing website where people post opinions, share thoughts, answer scientific questions to a high degree of accuracy, etc.
There’s absolutely no money involved.

However, Quora does come up with Knowledge Prizes, ranging from about $200 to $1000 or more, where you are allowed to share your thoughts and win some money if Quora feels your answer is the best from a pool of answers.

com/prizes

Now, several major publishing houses such as The Huffington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, Forbes Magazine, Slate (magazine), Inc Magazine, etc.
lurks around silently within the walls of Quora.
Searching.
Seeking.
If your answers are well composed, articulate, and really stand out from the rest, you stand a real good chance of getting published in one of these majors, and they might even pay you some money for you article.

Right, there’s another way to this.

If your words are crisp and your thoughts lucid, chances are people would take notice and might invite you as a guest speaker somewhere, a corporate/life/sport coach, a teacher, etc.
All these might help you make some money too.

Well, so far, I’ve been invited to give a TEDx talk at MSRIT, Bangalore, and also to give a talk at a student’s training workshop organised by the American Society for Mechanical Engineers, at Manipal Institute of Technology.

All through Quora!
No money involved in either of these events, so I’m still broke! But you get the point, right?


This is possible.
Making money with Quora is doable.

If you want to make money by answering questions on Quora, you'd want to aim for content.
Quality content.
And then follow these goals:
Grow a following
You'd want to grow your audience in Quora.
You can do this by actively upvoting answers, following influencers, answering questions that your audience would get value from.

Catch attention
You don't want to waste earned followers.
Always post valuable content.
Hook them with attention grabbing answers or headlines.

Pound them with valuable insights, feed their curiosity.
Important: do this regularly.
You're making a huge mistake of doing this sporadically.

Aim for conversion
You grabbed their attention? Good.
But it doesn't end here.
Don't waste your opportunity to pitch your product or service here.

Sprinkle elements of conversion in your answers.
Answers that hint or lead to your niche.

Run the show
Refer your audience.
Link them to your website.
This could be part of your answer.

I see answers with footers that link to another site or blog.

The goal is to lead them to your show.
Which is my next point.

Drive traffic
The ultimate goal is to drive more traffic to your site, blog, or funnel because traffic will bolster your income by bringing you potential customers.

In turn, more earnings for you.

I don't think Quora will pay you for your answers.
(Or it's just me because of my cringing answers) But using Quora to grow your following will help you achieve your goal.

Traffic is the main objective of using manifold avenues for businesses.
Quora is one.

And Quora is a clever route to take.
Not only you would enjoy growing your audience, but also helping fellow Quorans get their answers.


No, we don’t.
In fact, it’s strictly prohibited in our user agreement.

Some people do find creative ways to reference their own published works or to refer to other sources.
And some answerers might have an affiliate relationship with a vendor or gain a little bit when they drive traffic to a particular site (we’re talking about token amounts here).
But self-promotion is prohibited, so it would have to be on the side (more incidental than intentional), and links and referrals in answers have to actually contribute to the answer, not be a veiled attempt to siphon off traffic elsewhere.

Most of us who write on Quora love knowledge and know our subject areas well and enjoy sharing what we know with those who want to know.
The biggest value I get from writing on Quora is the satisfaction that I’m helping others understand my subject areas better…and helping to prevent misunderstanding and confusion.

It would be hard to ensure neutrality and legitimacy if we made money writing answers, because when profit becomes a motive, people do and say all kinds of stupid things.
And then there’s the issue that people would start caring more about the money than about writing a quality answer, so that profit motive begins to undermine credibility.

There are some intangible benefits, too, like reputation or prestige…or the ability to reference your Quora answers elsewhere.

But making money? No.
Not here.

– – – – –
UPDATE (10/17/18): I recently learned that Quora has introduced a partner program that “rewards members of the program for asking engaging, thoughtful questions[1](NOTE: That’s questions, not answers).
I was unaware of that, but I have definitely noticed in the last year a substantial increase in the quantity of both troll questions (where they’re trying to provoke a response or argue a point masquerading as a question) and insincere questions (where it’s a legitimate question, but you can tell from the wording the person asking it isn’t actually dealing with the issue personally – it’s posed hypothetically and insincerely).
These are often especially difficult to respond to since it’s a purely hypothetical scenario and lacks the real-world context that in many fields is very necessary for providing a good answer.
I think this only underscores my point further: With money incentivizing the writing, the quality and authenticity of the questions has suffered noticeably, which makes me all the more glad they don’t pay for answers.


Quora is a knowledge sharing platform.
If you have any question on any topic and are searching for a number of relevant answers to it, then quora is the destination.

People are answering here not for earning anything.
But,for sharing information on what they know and want others to know as well.

So,I don’t think anybody is getting paid for their answers here.

This is what their tag line says “ The best answer to any question” and it is really impressive.
So,if you have any genuine questions on different topics, you will get a whole lot of great answers from various experts in the relevant fields here.

There might be certain irritating questions as well,but keeping them aside,you can gather the best that you want.

Nobody is getting paid for sharing their views here whether your answers are in the form of :
We are here to share some information that can help others in some way or the other.
Although,there are “Knowledge prizes” on few questions but all are not lucky enough to grab that.
If there is any other mode, at least I am not aware of it.

So,keep reading and keep enjoying and most importantly,add to your knowledge all for free.


Not directly.

But more and more people are finding ways to monetise their activity here—writing books and advertising them on Quora, putting books together based on their material from Quora, pushing their courses, workshops, advice and coaching skills and so forth.

I don't begrudge them this, most people who do this have invested a huge amount of time and effort in writing on Quora.

Others have found work through Quora contacts—writing, copyediting, advising and so forth.

I believe that a couple of the most popular writers on here have opened patreon accounts.

Others have moved to Medium, and advertised their Medium content on Quora.

Quora doesn't particularly like this, and in theory you aren't allowed to advertise on Quora.
But when the adverts are via additional Quora content, and it gets them clicks, upvotes and shares, they don't care too much.
Quora is not Wikipedia, they're here to make money.

The “problem” here is that most of these strategies necessitate building up a reader base.
If you want to sell a few hundred books, you need a few tens of thousands of followers.

Building up a reader base on Quora is difficult for new writers.
New writers usually struggle to break into feeds, which are already somewhat glutted with the “big names” of Quora.
Quora's social media algorithms give precedence to popular content, which thereby becomes more popular, and it's difficult to shine in this sea of answers and blogs.

Daily write minimum 10 answers and try to get minimum 10k upvote and 200k view.

Now monetize your answer .

Sound hard and long process.

Now let comes to reality even you get 1 million views you cannot earn money just by answering question .

Quora is not made for giving answer and making money.

If you want some platform where you give amswer and earn money then go for Chegg .

Chegg give you money for answering 1 approved answer.

You can google and know the rule.

But Quora is Quora .

Quora is Not Chegg.
People Here come to find the answer for the question they had in mind.

It’s a place of sharing knowledge.

Now one had started using Quora because they want to earn money.

Quora was introduced to me by one of my friend and seeing this that people are genuinely answering your question And ypu cam give answer .
I was just get fascinated by it and i made my account there .

But never thought of making money by giving answer .

But after reading Crushing it ! I had came to know many things about Personal Brand.

So i think you cannot make money by answering question.
But you can make a image , a picture in front of people and can used that for earning Money.

I don’t know how , you have to figured it out.
As i never thought about earning through Quora i don’t know how to do.

I just know this .
I am here to learning new thing , reading people story, success, failure , there experience , thought.
And even sharing mine.

So let it be that way .

There are many ways for making money you can find it on my other answer , but none will give you a way to Earn money by answering on Quora.

Share your knowledge , experience, success story and be ready to learn new things but not think of earning money.

Thanks.

So my answer is yes, Quora can be used for earning money.
I am sure lots of people knows the concept of viral marketing/ social marketing.

So the question is HOW WE CAN MAKE MONEY USING QUORA?
So what are you waiting for, think how can you increase your stuffs and follower so that your answers can be viewed by massive crowd and your pocket is full.

“Think Rich, Grow Rich”


Why would I choose Quora for earning money whilst there are so many other websites where we can directly earn money without answering any answers.

I starting using Quora not to see if anybody earns money here or how can I earn money, but the sole reason was to learn, to get knowledge and to share information.
( If I have some lol)
Also, I have seen many top viewed answers here who get lakhs of views for their contribution but haven't seen any answer where they have mentioned about their blogs, asking donations or any other forms to earn money.
They do it to build a name for themselves, to satisfy their inner mind and to get people's support.

The satisfaction you get when your answer reaches 100 views, 1000 views, 5000views or 1–10–50-more upvotes is something which we cannot express.
(I've just started writing on Quora so have got only these many views on my profile.
I do not wish to cite examples of others views/upvotes)
Even while writing the answer for this, I have no thought of money but hoping to get views, upvotes or suggestions to improve myself.

However, there are few people who write answers and asks the followers to follow their blog for more.
It might be good if used only when needed but flooding the answers with links is something which angers me.

This is Quora, let it be Quora and not next money making platform.


No, Quora does not pay for answers.
Silly enough they pay for questions.
Get enough views on your stupid, inflammatory and insincere questions and you can actually make a decent payday.
My Quora Partners Program notifications love to remind me that some people made well over $2000 last moth asking useless questions that riled up enough people to get hundreds of answers and hundreds of thousands of views, while my questions have managed to net me a lifetime earnings of under a dollar.

“You should get on spamming questions about everything from ‘should I beat my child if they play my video game save?’ to ‘I stole a car, should I return it?’ to ‘my boyfriend beats me, does that mean he loves me?’ so you can get in on this bonanza!” seems to be the message they are peddling.
Or I suppose I could try writing a bot that asks every variation of “what is X+Y?” and “is so and so your favorite celebrity?” so I can have all the google search results covered.

The QPP was recently changed to emphasize traffic that comes in from off site, so optimizing for that search result ranking is going to be key moving forwards.
This pretty clearly shows that this program is not about building and maintaining a strong and loyal user base, but rather looking to optimize getting largest number of raw eyeballs to look at the site at least once.
And honestly with the quality of junk this program has fostered once is probably the best they can hope for, as my queue is getting more and more full of spam content that would make the trollish denizens at Yahoo! Answers throw their hands up in exasperation.

Anyway, I hope this answers your question.
If you see the QPP as as big a problem as most of us long-time writers and community members head on over to the QPP topic and voice your displeasure in whatever way seems most appropriate.
It is probably about as effective as screaming at the wind but at least the rest of us will know we are not totally alone.


No, I don’t quite yet.
But I would expect to do so in a couple of years.

Besides the great feeling of self-appreciation that I have when I receive upvotes on my answers, I can safely assume that if I manage to build some sort of authority in my domain by giving the right answers I will ultimately make a lot of money from it.

And I am saying this because I have seen others doing it! Yes, there are a lot of people who make A HUGE LOAD of money through Quora.

Pay attention though, I said THROUGH and not ON.

That’s because Quora is a platform where people share their knowledge to make the world a better informed place.
So, it’s not directly rewarding people for doing so, as it relies on people genuine desire to educate others.

However, I know many top bloggers, influencers that make money thanks to their activities on Quora.

How? I am going to explain you! It’s pretty simple.

If your answers are really well put, you will start to gain authority and people will come to you directly to know more.
That’s when you can turn them into your customers, since they will be more willing to pay you cash for your services!
However, if you don’t want to invest time and energies for something that can only pay off 6 or 12 months down the line , there is a similar platform where you can actually make money from the very start.
This platform is called Superble
Superble rewards you for recommending the products you love and sharing your experiences.
It’s extremely straightforward, as people go there to find quick answers to their questions about specific products they are interested in (whether it’s in beauty, fashion, sports, tech.
.
.
You name it!)


Edit: I misread the question.
But I like my answer anyway.

Correct.

The Quora Partner Program ( QPP) compensates QPP members for questions.
Very recently, QPP pays more for relatively helpful questions (thank you, Quora).

We are not financially compensated for writing answers.

(I was about to go on about all the other ways we’re compensated.
Ya know – with appreciation, upvotes.
witty comments, houseguests, salt water taffy, cute puppy pictures, shares, coffee invitations, and such.
But- did you hear about those terrible, horrible, insanely annoying people who write essays and diatribes and just too many fucking words when a simple declarative statement would suffice.
Too many fucking words!! OMG.
I want no part of those… (cough) writers.
And so I shall stop.
Right after this.
Do you know my recovery from ankle surgery is way, way longer and far, far worse than expected? Eleventy seven days now.
I spent hours yesterday carefully collaging my ankle surgery ( graphic procedure pictures, my cast, a witty thing about orphan socks, super cute clip art and everything!) and was *this close* to proudly posting “my wordless story” when (wait for it….
) my indefatigable, invincible, unfucking believablywonderful Mac got sick.
I know, right? Feverish, sluggish, foggy, confused SO SO sick.
And this morning, the nice people at Apple support <well, the first rep said they could not provide support to this old thing – the machine – not me- but chat disconnected ((I swear I had nothing to do with that)) and the new agent leaped to my/our rescue> logged on to trouble-shoot , and POOF- the illness was gone.
GONE.
I know, right? I hate when that happens.
You read my mind- yep-just like when your car stops that horrific, ear-splitting noise as you enter the service bay.
Hey – wait- that’s sorta weird.
Maybe ironic.
I’m never sure about that word.
But no, rain on your wedding day? Not ironic.
But anyways… Jim’s 215k mile CRV broke down on his way home today.
Thankfully, last night, his sister sent him home with blankets and snacks and all sorts of stuff smart people keep in their car for winter breakdowns.
She really is lovely.
And smart.
And a Duke Duchess! If only her brilliant little brother left the stuff in the car.
But, noooo.
I found it on the kitchen counter today after he drove off.
Into more snow.
And broke down.
Idjit.
I mean, poor, poor beloved shivering idjit.
Whelp, the frozen warrior just got home.
I have to stop for now.
I’ll be back tomorrow to help fight the good fight against whatever (whomever) we were just railing against)


Let me continue where Gopalkrishna Vishwanath ended.
.

I’ve been here almost a year as well.
Even though I’ve written just about 420 odd answers, I think I’ve seen enough to confirm that Quora does NOT pay anyone anything.

This is a free knowledge sharing website where people post opinions, share thoughts, answer scientific questions to a high degree of accuracy, etc.
There’s absolutely no money involved.

However, Quora does come up with Knowledge Prizes, ranging from about $200 to $1000 or more, where you are allowed to share your thoughts and win some money if Quora feels your answer is the best from a pool of answers.

com/prizes

Now, several major publishing houses such as The Huffington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, Forbes Magazine, Slate (magazine), Inc Magazine, etc.
lurks around silently within the walls of Quora.
Searching.
Seeking.
If your answers are well composed, articulate, and really stand out from the rest, you stand a real good chance of getting published in one of these majors, and they might even pay you some money for you article.

Right, there’s another way to this.

If your words are crisp and your thoughts lucid, chances are people would take notice and might invite you as a guest speaker somewhere, a corporate/life/sport coach, a teacher, etc.
All these might help you make some money too.

Well, so far, I’ve been invited to give a TEDx talk at MSRIT, Bangalore, and also to give a talk at a student’s training workshop organised by the American Society for Mechanical Engineers, at Manipal Institute of Technology.

All through Quora!
No money involved in either of these events, so I’m still broke! But you get the point, right?


This is possible.
Making money with Quora is doable.

If you want to make money by answering questions on Quora, you'd want to aim for content.
Quality content.
And then follow these goals:
Grow a following
You'd want to grow your audience in Quora.
You can do this by actively upvoting answers, following influencers, answering questions that your audience would get value from.

Catch attention
You don't want to waste earned followers.
Always post valuable content.
Hook them with attention grabbing answers or headlines.

Pound them with valuable insights, feed their curiosity.
Important: do this regularly.
You're making a huge mistake of doing this sporadically.

Aim for conversion
You grabbed their attention? Good.
But it doesn't end here.
Don't waste your opportunity to pitch your product or service here.

Sprinkle elements of conversion in your answers.
Answers that hint or lead to your niche.

Run the show
Refer your audience.
Link them to your website.
This could be part of your answer.

I see answers with footers that link to another site or blog.

The goal is to lead them to your show.
Which is my next point.

Drive traffic
The ultimate goal is to drive more traffic to your site, blog, or funnel because traffic will bolster your income by bringing you potential customers.

In turn, more earnings for you.

I don't think Quora will pay you for your answers.
(Or it's just me because of my cringing answers) But using Quora to grow your following will help you achieve your goal.

Traffic is the main objective of using manifold avenues for businesses.
Quora is one.

And Quora is a clever route to take.
Not only you would enjoy growing your audience, but also helping fellow Quorans get their answers.


No, we don’t.
In fact, it’s strictly prohibited in our user agreement.

Some people do find creative ways to reference their own published works or to refer to other sources.
And some answerers might have an affiliate relationship with a vendor or gain a little bit when they drive traffic to a particular site (we’re talking about token amounts here).
But self-promotion is prohibited, so it would have to be on the side (more incidental than intentional), and links and referrals in answers have to actually contribute to the answer, not be a veiled attempt to siphon off traffic elsewhere.

Most of us who write on Quora love knowledge and know our subject areas well and enjoy sharing what we know with those who want to know.
The biggest value I get from writing on Quora is the satisfaction that I’m helping others understand my subject areas better…and helping to prevent misunderstanding and confusion.

It would be hard to ensure neutrality and legitimacy if we made money writing answers, because when profit becomes a motive, people do and say all kinds of stupid things.
And then there’s the issue that people would start caring more about the money than about writing a quality answer, so that profit motive begins to undermine credibility.

There are some intangible benefits, too, like reputation or prestige…or the ability to reference your Quora answers elsewhere.

But making money? No.
Not here.

– – – – –
UPDATE (10/17/18): I recently learned that Quora has introduced a partner program that “rewards members of the program for asking engaging, thoughtful questions[1](NOTE: That’s questions, not answers).
I was unaware of that, but I have definitely noticed in the last year a substantial increase in the quantity of both troll questions (where they’re trying to provoke a response or argue a point masquerading as a question) and insincere questions (where it’s a legitimate question, but you can tell from the wording the person asking it isn’t actually dealing with the issue personally – it’s posed hypothetically and insincerely).
These are often especially difficult to respond to since it’s a purely hypothetical scenario and lacks the real-world context that in many fields is very necessary for providing a good answer.
I think this only underscores my point further: With money incentivizing the writing, the quality and authenticity of the questions has suffered noticeably, which makes me all the more glad they don’t pay for answers.


Quora is a knowledge sharing platform.
If you have any question on any topic and are searching for a number of relevant answers to it, then quora is the destination.

People are answering here not for earning anything.
But,for sharing information on what they know and want others to know as well.

So,I don’t think anybody is getting paid for their answers here.

This is what their tag line says “ The best answer to any question” and it is really impressive.
So,if you have any genuine questions on different topics, you will get a whole lot of great answers from various experts in the relevant fields here.

There might be certain irritating questions as well,but keeping them aside,you can gather the best that you want.

Nobody is getting paid for sharing their views here whether your answers are in the form of :
We are here to share some information that can help others in some way or the other.
Although,there are “Knowledge prizes” on few questions but all are not lucky enough to grab that.
If there is any other mode, at least I am not aware of it.

So,keep reading and keep enjoying and most importantly,add to your knowledge all for free.


Not directly.

But more and more people are finding ways to monetise their activity here—writing books and advertising them on Quora, putting books together based on their material from Quora, pushing their courses, workshops, advice and coaching skills and so forth.

I don't begrudge them this, most people who do this have invested a huge amount of time and effort in writing on Quora.

Others have found work through Quora contacts—writing, copyediting, advising and so forth.

I believe that a couple of the most popular writers on here have opened patreon accounts.

Others have moved to Medium, and advertised their Medium content on Quora.

Quora doesn't particularly like this, and in theory you aren't allowed to advertise on Quora.
But when the adverts are via additional Quora content, and it gets them clicks, upvotes and shares, they don't care too much.
Quora is not Wikipedia, they're here to make money.

The “problem” here is that most of these strategies necessitate building up a reader base.
If you want to sell a few hundred books, you need a few tens of thousands of followers.

Building up a reader base on Quora is difficult for new writers.
New writers usually struggle to break into feeds, which are already somewhat glutted with the “big names” of Quora.
Quora's social media algorithms give precedence to popular content, which thereby becomes more popular, and it's difficult to shine in this sea of answers and blogs.


Quora will not pay you.
But You can make money by posting answers on quora.
You just need to give full description about the website VisitL.
ink
.

The following details are for you and also for describing others to make money.

What is the description ?
How to start?
Do signup at visitl.
ink
? Get any links link movie download links, YouTube video links, Software download links,…etc.

ink
and share them on Facebook, Twitter, …etc.

This way there will be many clicks on the shared links.
The more will the clicks, the more you will earn money.

If you are Amazon Assosiate, you can get the affiliate link to any product and make them short and share them to many social media sites.

If you have YouTube channel, You can promote your video by sharing shorted video links and also you will make money.

Its all about s Short → Share → make money.

Just post this Description for the answers to the question “How to make money on Quora ” or some thing like that.

You don’t can earn money from Quora directly, but it can help you a lot of money!
How can you earn money from Quora?
Best Regards


There is no direct source of earning with Quora but indirectly you can earn a lot with Quora.

There is no limit of earning on Internet
I have seen people earning 500$ /day check out my article on it
Things to Remember-


Quora is no place for earning but hey hang on, if you think you write good then there are some websites where you can earn money for your skillful writing.


Although Craig Good has given the best answer to your question, i would like to add a few points assuming you never violated any rule and your use of English flaw was not pointed out.
Here are a few ways you could make money on Quora:


Some Intelligent & smart people get paid ! & No,you can't have any of it !
Let that sink in for a moment while i grab my coffee:-)
Lets look at it this way….

See the difference between these ?
Another thought : Does Quora allow direct selling, marketing , merchandising or promotion from writers / authors ? NO
But if you observe closely ….
.
there are people / people owning companies
answering relentlessly on subjects like :
Over a period of time [Let's say hard work of 1- 2 years] when you and your answers become :
You have an audience , a base , a viewership and people who look upto you for inspiration, suggestions , life-advice and tons of questions.

How would anyone exploit this ?
Remember 2 points if you’d really wanna burn your fingers here and earn money
Cheers!

If you are invited to join Quora’s partner program you can earn some money from generating questions.
If these questions prove to be popular, you can earn a small percentage of the ad revenue generated on the questions.

Some Quora partners earn a good living from asking many questions every day.
I was invited to join the program recently and have earned a small commission from a few questions I have posted.

You can also use Quora to drive traffic to your website, if you are an affiliate, or even if you have your own business.
This can generate traffic, leads and sales.
Affiliate marketers use Quora to generate visitors to their websites by answering questions and linking through to their content.

You can’t link directly to affiliate products however, but you can link to useful information which you might have on a website.

So you can make money from both answering questions and asking them too.


Does sharing a “LOL” meme on Facebook gives you money??
No, but more than a million people were doing it.

Does updating status on WhatsApp gives you money??
No, but again more than a million people were doing it.

Does uploading your recent pic on Instagram gives you money??
No, but again more than a million people were doing it.

Not all the things are done for money.
Quora is one of them.
(
At least until now)

Originally answered for: “Can people make money answering questions on Quora?”
My initial reaction when I saw this question was a big fat “NO”, but I realized that I was looking at it only from a traditional perspective.
A traditional perspective meaning that content creators receive a cut of the ad revenue earnings, or a special “paid-members only” programme (for example, YouTube and Medium).

But then I recalled a job listing that I had come across on Freelancer (Freelancer is an online job portal for freelancers and employers).
The listing stated “Need writer to write 8–9 Quora answers daily” or something along those lines.
As I was aggressively trying to increase my client base, I got into some initial talks with the employer.
But things did not pan out.

Moral of the story: Yes, there are a few indirect methods of earning money by answering questions on Quora, but no direct methods, as of October 2018.
(You can, however, earn money through asking questions, but that is a different issue altogether.
)
Cheers!

Yes, you can make money from quora.

YES.

After publishing it


Absolutely yes!!!
I can very proudly say that Quora has changed my life tremendously.

Quora is so full of amazing writers.
Every time I read answers of people , my thinking horizon gets broaden up.

Every time someone praises me for any of my answer, the happiness which I experience is beyond words.

Knowledge can only be increased when it is shared, and there is no such platform which can help us to share knowledge to this extent.

In real life we often find people disinterested in other's conversation.
They don't want to listen to others but here people willingly choose to read our stories and whatever we wanna say.
Isn't that amazing??
I definitely get paid for writing answers on quora.

Can you earn money by answering Quora questions?


I have been here for 15 months.

I have answered over 2000 questions so far.

Not a single person, not a single follower has given me a single rupee so far.

And neither has Quora paid me anything to answer questions here.

I don’t think anyone is making any money by answering questions here.

Our rewards are the satisfaction we get, the upvotes on good answers and the friendly comments that some readers post after reading our posts.

If you like this answer, please post an acknowledgement and tell us so.

If you are not satisfied, please ignore this answer.

You can keep any money that you may have thought of giving me.

(I was about to go on about all the other ways we’re compensated.
Ya know – with appreciation, upvotes.
witty comments, houseguests, salt water taffy, cute puppy pictures, shares, coffee invitations, and such.
But- did you hear about those terrible, horrible, insanely annoying people who write essays and diatribes and just too many fucking words when a simple declarative statement would suffice.
Too many fucking words!! OMG.
I want no part of those… (cough) writers.
And so I shall stop.
Right after this.
Do you know my recovery from ankle surgery is way, way longer and far, far worse than expected? Eleventy seven days now.
I spent hours yesterday carefully collaging my ankle surgery ( graphic procedure pictures, my cast, a witty thing about orphan socks, super cute clip art and everything!) and was *this close* to proudly posting “my wordless story” when (wait for it….
) my indefatigable, invincible, unfucking believablywonderful Mac got sick.
I know, right? Feverish, sluggish, foggy, confused SO SO sick.
And this morning, the nice people at Apple support <well, the first rep said they could not provide support to this old thing – the machine – not me- but chat disconnected ((I swear I had nothing to do with that)) and the new agent leaped to my/our rescue> logged on to trouble-shoot , and POOF- the illness was gone.
GONE.
I know, right? I hate when that happens.
You read my mind- yep-just like when your car stops that horrific, ear-splitting noise as you enter the service bay.
Hey – wait- that’s sorta weird.
Maybe ironic.
I’m never sure about that word.
But no, rain on your wedding day? Not ironic.
But anyways… Jim’s 215k mile CRV broke down on his way home today.
Thankfully, last night, his sister sent him home with blankets and snacks and all sorts of stuff smart people keep in their car for winter breakdowns.
She really is lovely.
And smart.
And a Duke Duchess! If only her brilliant little brother left the stuff in the car.
But, noooo.
I found it on the kitchen counter today after he drove off.
Into more snow.
And broke down.
Idjit.
I mean, poor, poor beloved shivering idjit.
Whelp, the frozen warrior just got home.
I have to stop for now.
I’ll be back tomorrow to help fight the good fight against whatever (whomever) we were just railing against)


Let me continue where Gopalkrishna Vishwanath ended.
.

I’ve been here almost a year as well.
Even though I’ve written just about 420 odd answers, I think I’ve seen enough to confirm that Quora does NOT pay anyone anything.

This is a free knowledge sharing website where people post opinions, share thoughts, answer scientific questions to a high degree of accuracy, etc.
There’s absolutely no money involved.

However, Quora does come up with Knowledge Prizes, ranging from about $200 to $1000 or more, where you are allowed to share your thoughts and win some money if Quora feels your answer is the best from a pool of answers.

Now, several major publishing houses such as The Huffington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, Forbes Magazine, Slate (magazine), Inc Magazine, etc.
lurks around silently within the walls of Quora.
Searching.
Seeking.
If your answers are well composed, articulate, and really stand out from the rest, you stand a real good chance of getting published in one of these majors, and they might even pay you some money for you article.

Right, there’s another way to this.

If your words are crisp and your thoughts lucid, chances are people would take notice and might invite you as a guest speaker somewhere, a corporate/life/sport coach, a teacher, etc.
All these might help you make some money too.

Well, so far, I’ve been invited to give a TEDx talk at MSRIT, Bangalore, and also to give a talk at a student’s training workshop organised by the American Society for Mechanical Engineers, at Manipal Institute of Technology.

All through Quora!
No money involved in either of these events, so I’m still broke! But you get the point, right?


This is possible.
Making money with Quora is doable.

If you want to make money by answering questions on Quora, you'd want to aim for content.
Quality content.
And then follow these goals:
Grow a following
You'd want to grow your audience in Quora.
You can do this by actively upvoting answers, following influencers, answering questions that your audience would get value from.

Catch attention
You don't want to waste earned followers.
Always post valuable content.
Hook them with attention grabbing answers or headlines.

Pound them with valuable insights, feed their curiosity.
Important: do this regularly.
You're making a huge mistake of doing this sporadically.

Aim for conversion
You grabbed their attention? Good.
But it doesn't end here.
Don't waste your opportunity to pitch your product or service here.

Sprinkle elements of conversion in your answers.
Answers that hint or lead to your niche.

Run the show
Refer your audience.
Link them to your website.
This could be part of your answer.

I see answers with footers that link to another site or blog.

The goal is to lead them to your show.
Which is my next point.

Drive traffic
The ultimate goal is to drive more traffic to your site, blog, or funnel because traffic will bolster your income by bringing you potential customers.

In turn, more earnings for you.

I don't think Quora will pay you for your answers.
(Or it's just me because of my cringing answers) But using Quora to grow your following will help you achieve your goal.

Traffic is the main objective of using manifold avenues for businesses.
Quora is one.

And Quora is a clever route to take.
Not only you would enjoy growing your audience, but also helping fellow Quorans get their answers.


No, we don’t.
In fact, it’s strictly prohibited in our user agreement.

Some people do find creative ways to reference their own published works or to refer to other sources.
And some answerers might have an affiliate relationship with a vendor or gain a little bit when they drive traffic to a particular site (we’re talking about token amounts here).
But self-promotion is prohibited, so it would have to be on the side (more incidental than intentional), and links and referrals in answers have to actually contribute to the answer, not be a veiled attempt to siphon off traffic elsewhere.

Most of us who write on Quora love knowledge and know our subject areas well and enjoy sharing what we know with those who want to know.
The biggest value I get from writing on Quora is the satisfaction that I’m helping others understand my subject areas better…and helping to prevent misunderstanding and confusion.

It would be hard to ensure neutrality and legitimacy if we made money writing answers, because when profit becomes a motive, people do and say all kinds of stupid things.
And then there’s the issue that people would start caring more about the money than about writing a quality answer, so that profit motive begins to undermine credibility.

There are some intangible benefits, too, like reputation or prestige…or the ability to reference your Quora answers elsewhere.

But making money? No.
Not here.

UPDATE (10/17/18): I recently learned that Quora has introduced a partner program that “rewards members of the program for asking engaging, thoughtful questions[1](NOTE: That’s questions, not answers).
I was unaware of that, but I have definitely noticed in the last year a substantial increase in the quantity of both troll questions (where they’re trying to provoke a response or argue a point masquerading as a question) and insincere questions (where it’s a legitimate question, but you can tell from the wording the person asking it isn’t actually dealing with the issue personally – it’s posed hypothetically and insincerely).
These are often especially difficult to respond to since it’s a purely hypothetical scenario and lacks the real-world context that in many fields is very necessary for providing a good answer.
I think this only underscores my point further: With money incentivizing the writing, the quality and authenticity of the questions has suffered noticeably, which makes me all the more glad they don’t pay for answers.


Quora is a knowledge sharing platform.
If you have any question on any topic and are searching for a number of relevant answers to it, then quora is the destination.

People are answering here not for earning anything.
But,for sharing information on what they know and want others to know as well.

So,I don’t think anybody is getting paid for their answers here.

This is what their tag line says “ The best answer to any question” and it is really impressive.
So,if you have any genuine questions on different topics, you will get a whole lot of great answers from various experts in the relevant fields here.

There might be certain irritating questions as well,but keeping them aside,you can gather the best that you want.

Nobody is getting paid for sharing their views here whether your answers are in the form of :
We are here to share some information that can help others in some way or the other.
Although,there are “Knowledge prizes” on few questions but all are not lucky enough to grab that.
If there is any other mode, at least I am not aware of it.

So,keep reading and keep enjoying and most importantly,add to your knowledge all for free.


Not directly.

But more and more people are finding ways to monetise their activity here—writing books and advertising them on Quora, putting books together based on their material from Quora, pushing their courses, workshops, advice and coaching skills and so forth.

I don't begrudge them this, most people who do this have invested a huge amount of time and effort in writing on Quora.

Others have found work through Quora contacts—writing, copyediting, advising and so forth.

I believe that a couple of the most popular writers on here have opened patreon accounts.

Others have moved to Medium, and advertised their Medium content on Quora.

Quora doesn't particularly like this, and in theory you aren't allowed to advertise on Quora.
But when the adverts are via additional Quora content, and it gets them clicks, upvotes and shares, they don't care too much.
Quora is not Wikipedia, they're here to make money.

The “problem” here is that most of these strategies necessitate building up a reader base.
If you want to sell a few hundred books, you need a few tens of thousands of followers.

Building up a reader base on Quora is difficult for new writers.
New writers usually struggle to break into feeds, which are already somewhat glutted with the “big names” of Quora.
Quora's social media algorithms give precedence to popular content, which thereby becomes more popular, and it's difficult to shine in this sea of answers and blogs.

How can you earn money from Quora?
Best Regards


There is no direct source of earning with Quora but indirectly you can earn a lot with Quora.

Things to Remember-


Quora is no place for earning but hey hang on, if you think you write good then there are some websites where you can earn money for your skillful writing.


Although Craig Good has given the best answer to your question, i would like to add a few points assuming you never violated any rule and your use of English flaw was not pointed out.
Here are a few ways you could make money on Quora:


Some Intelligent & smart people get paid ! & No,you can't have any of it !
Let that sink in for a moment while i grab my coffee:-)
Lets look at it this way….

See the difference between these ?
Another thought : Does Quora allow direct selling, marketing , merchandising or promotion from writers / authors ? NO
But if you observe closely ….
.
there are people / people owning companies
answering relentlessly on subjects like :
Over a period of time [Let's say hard work of 1- 2 years] when you and your answers become :
You have an audience , a base , a viewership and people who look upto you for inspiration, suggestions , life-advice and tons of questions.

How would anyone exploit this ?
Remember 2 points if you’d really wanna burn your fingers here and earn money

If you are invited to join Quora’s partner program you can earn some money from generating questions.
If these questions prove to be popular, you can earn a small percentage of the ad revenue generated on the questions.

Some Quora partners earn a good living from asking many questions every day.
I was invited to join the program recently and have earned a small commission from a few questions I have posted.

You can also use Quora to drive traffic to your website, if you are an affiliate, or even if you have your own business.
This can generate traffic, leads and sales.
Affiliate marketers use Quora to generate visitors to their websites by answering questions and linking through to their content.

You can’t link directly to affiliate products however, but you can link to useful information which you might have on a website.

So you can make money from both answering questions and asking them too.


Does sharing a “LOL” meme on Facebook gives you money??
No, but more than a million people were doing it.

Does updating status on WhatsApp gives you money??
No, but again more than a million people were doing it.

Does uploading your recent pic on Instagram gives you money??
No, but again more than a million people were doing it.

Not all the things are done for money.
Quora is one of them.

At least until now)

Originally answered for: “Can people make money answering questions on Quora?”
My initial reaction when I saw this question was a big fat “NO”, but I realized that I was looking at it only from a traditional perspective.
A traditional perspective meaning that content creators receive a cut of the ad revenue earnings, or a special “paid-members only” programme (for example, YouTube and Medium).

But then I recalled a job listing that I had come across on Freelancer (Freelancer is an online job portal for freelancers and employers).
The listing stated “Need writer to write 8–9 Quora answers daily” or something along those lines.
As I was aggressively trying to increase my client base, I got into some initial talks with the employer.
But things did not pan out.

Moral of the story: Yes, there are a few indirect methods of earning money by answering questions on Quora, but no direct methods, as of October 2018.
(You can, however, earn money through asking questions, but that is a different issue altogether.
)
Cheers!

After publishing it


Absolutely yes!!!
I can very proudly say that Quora has changed my life tremendously.

Quora is so full of amazing writers.
Every time I read answers of people , my thinking horizon gets broaden up.

Every time someone praises me for any of my answer, the happiness which I experience is beyond words.

Knowledge can only be increased when it is shared, and there is no such platform which can help us to share knowledge to this extent.

In real life we often find people disinterested in other's conversation.
They don't want to listen to others but here people willingly choose to read our stories and whatever we wanna say.
Isn't that amazing??
I definitely get paid for writing answers on quora.
.
in terms of love of all the readers, happiness whenever appreciated or whenever someone finds my answer helpful.
It helps me to utilize my leisure time in the best possible way.

P.
S: well.
