Today, millions of people are using answer sites to find solutions to their problems. Many of these people are potential buyers. So the goal is to use these websites to drive targeted traffic to your site by answering some questions on these sites.
By properly funneling this traffic directly to your sales pages, you can generate a steady traffic. The best thing is that like video and article marketing, traffic from these websites is also residual in nature, therefore, you can reap the benefits for weeks or months with just one time effort.
Once your account is created, you can proceed and complete your profile. Now go to the main page to check the questions that are grouped and posted according to their subject matter.
Choose questions related to your niche. Every time you answer any question, you can include a link to your site as a source in secondary box that accompanies your response.
