Ok, we’ve crossed 25,000,000 views on Quora! Thank you to everyone for being a partner to this community! That’s up from 20m in February and 10m about 11 months ago.
I really don’t know much about social media, but here’s what I do know:
- What’s worked for us: Quora, SaaStr.com blog, Twitter. And it’s new, but Harry’s SaaStr Podcast is off to a strong start, having already cracked the Top 20 podcasts on iTunes for business.
- What hasn’t: Medium. Flipboard (even though I love Flipboard. Ah well).
- TBD / Jury is out: LinkedIn. Email newsletter (we have ~20k subs, but doesn’t perform all that well). Product Hunt.
As part of our tradition, we’re listing below the most popular answers and posts on Quora with view counts. We’ve taken out a few that aren’t on point.
