How Creators can unlock monetisation opportunities with Content on Quora

Quora earn by sharing knowledge

Creators can create subscriber-only content and earn money based on engagement or use Subscription Spaces which provide a members-only experience that allows the creator to form communities for their channel.

Quora launched two new subscription options for creators to make knowledge-sharing more financially sustainable for creators/influencers while boosting them to share more knowledge with the world.

Through a blog post on Quora, Adam D’Angelo, Founder & CEO, shared, “This is important to our mission since even though many people are motivated and able to spend their time writing on Quora just to share their knowledge, many others could share much more with financial justification to do so.”

As part of the monetization opportunity, the creators can make money from the content they create through the platform. With the changing ways of content creation, distribution, and monetization, Quora aims to empower its users by helping them earn on the content they create.

As a creator, there are two options to earn: 

  • Publishing posts/answers under Quora+ – The creator can create subscriber-only content and earn money based on engagement (read time, etc.) from their followers who are subscribed to Quora+. The earning mechanism is similar to Medium, but Quora takes less than Medium, and the earning potential is higher due to a larger potential subscriber base.
  • Offering a space subscription – Subscription Spaces provide a members-only experience that allows the creator to form communities for their channel. The floor is $1/month, and the creator earns around 90% of their subscription fees. The subscribers can get special benefits/privileges for that space. For example, getting access to all of the content, both free and paid, in the space and discuss answers with the creator.

The subscription features are live across 25 countries and will be extended to more in the near future.
