Crowdsourced Business Advice on Quora (Part 2)

Our last post introduced the concept of “crowdsourced” business advice with Quora. To recap, Quora is a site that allows users around the world to ask questions about any topic to seek real-world answers. Answers are upvoted by the community so the best responses rise to the top of the results.

As promised, we’ve curated a list of posts in Quora for your review.

There are 11,300 questions posted under the Quora topic “Small Business Advice”, and 241,000 followers. It’s a true wealth of information. There are related topics suggested that are more specific as well, such as Small Business Marketing, Entrepreneur and Startup Advice, and more.

General advice aside, there are lots of posts you can find about a simple topic such as CRM (customer relationship management) software. Do you have the need to be more organized with keeping track of customer or sales activities? There are many free or low-cost tools with which to achieve this but how to find the best one? Try Quora to get ideas.

Here is a handy list we feel will help small business owners the most:

  1. What is the best way to promote a small business using the internet?

  2. How do I generate B2B leads?

  3. How can outsourcing help small businesses?

  4. What are the most productive ways to spend time on the Internet?

  5. What are the most effective and proven time management techniques?

What do you think? Have you found value from reading or writing on Quora for your small business?
