If you are good at writing, you can make millions through Quora. Don’t get shocked! let’s see how.
Thousands of people post their pains daily on Quora. They want to get the solution of their problems. If you can write an e-book that solves their problem, they will not only buy it but will recommend it to others as well. Imagine you sell even 100 copies of your e-book/month each costing $30, you will easily make $3000 per month from just one book alone.
Once you have published your book, go on Quora and find topics related to your Book and Provide Quality Answers. In the body & at the end of your answer, add Link to your e-book. I also recommend you to use your e-book’s link in your social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. as it will help others to know that you have published a book. If you have a blog and you want to sell your e-book from their, add the link of your blog otherwise add the Amazon link.

Do you offer any services like Link Building, Freelance Writing, SEO, Web-Development, Business Consultancy etc? If yes, Quora can help you as well.

At the end, he added one example where he explained, how wrong link building destroyed one of his client’s blog and how he brought that blog again on track.
His Answer got around 20 Upvote and more than Thousand Views. I was surprised when he informed me that he was contacted by more than 20 people asking him to fix problems on their website.
