Since its public release in 2010, Quora has been polished and expanded over the years, both by its users and core team. Today it no longer stands as just a bland QnA forum.
It has become highly polished and accessible. The content is strictly curated, thus preserving the quality whilst simultaneously maintaining an extensive library.
Owing to the massive library of content, it became a difficult task to segregate topics. To resolve this, the Quora community saw the launch of Quora Spaces.
What is Quora Spaces?
Following a blog announcement by Abhinav Sharma, then-Quora writer and product designer, “Quora Spaces” was introduced to the Quora ecosystem in 2018.
In the blog, it was marketed as a way to bind together like-minded people following similar content by forming small communities called “Quora Spaces”. If you use Reddit, you will find it strikingly similar to the notion of subreddits which are nothing but small communities where content is limited to a very specific topic.
Quora Spaces was also launched with the same motivation. However, unlike Reddit, you can monetize your content through your personal Quora space.
This article covers a rundown of Quora Spaces and how to create a Quora Space and make money with your Quora Space.
Create A Quora Space
Quora Spaces facilitate engagement and expansion of audience. In earlier times, Quora used to have a “Blog” feature. It has been long removed and replaced by Spaces. Quora Spaces are heavily marketed and equally accessible.
If you are an influencer, business owner, blogger or just an independent, passionate writer you should be having your own Quora Space. It will greatly assist in expanding your reach and allowing you to connect with like-minded people who share your interests.
There are two ways to create your own Quora Space that have been discussed in this article. Let’s check it out.
