“Supermetrics is unquestionably the best tool for pulling data from advertising networks such as Google, Facebook, and Quora into spreadsheets and BI tools. It offers unrivaled flexibility, robustness, and data visualization options.”


– JD Prater, Quora Ads Evangelist at Quora


Why Quora Ads?

Quora is unquestionably one of the biggest user-generated content platforms, with an impressive user base of 300 million monthly users. With this incredible audience size and solid content quality (Quora focuses on long-form, quality answers from professionals), it has become the go-to place for people to search answers to questions about particular products or services. Therefore it’s a great channel for marketers to reach customers with high buying intent or to advertise content at a point when prospects are conducting research.

Quora introduced more marketing opportunities by launching Quora Ads in 2017. It is a new, fast-growing advertising platform that is definitely worth giving a spin, especially for B2B marketers. One of its greatest features is the promoted answers shown alongside high-quality content. Even though the platform was launched rather recently, it is already well-developed with its targeting and bidding options.

Quora Ads offers multiple targeting options: from very narrow targeting on specific questions to broader targeting for particular topics or audiences. As the questions are tagged in one or more topics, you can target based on the topic of interest or identify a specific audience and target based on that. In addition, you can import a list of keywords from your Google Ads campaigns and use this list to define topics, specific questions or interest targeting.

There are several bidding options on Quora Ads including CPC, Target CPA, and CPM.

The campaign structure is quite similar to other popular ad networks such as Google Ads, having three levels: campaigns, ad sets, and ads.

You can find more details about Quora Ads platform along with useful tips and best practices from this great article by JD Prater.
