Watch behind my shoulder as I teach you how to do affiliate marketing using Quora Ads.
I am using ClickBank as the example network and product here, but you can use ANY product and the same idea will apply and same steps as I cover in the tutorial.
So keep on reading this article or watch the video below:
Let’s quickly go through them step by step and see what we have to do.
Step 1: Create a Quora Ads account
In order to run Quora ads, you have to create a regular Quora account.
👉 Simply sign up for an account by clicking here.
You should then be able to answer and ask any questions you want to. Feel free to do so now, but to create the Quora ads account, you have to click on the little profile picture in the top right and click on “Create Ads”.
Follow the simple prompts by entering your business name and so on, and you should arrive at the main Quora ads interface!
👉 Make sure to also read their affiliate terms and conditions
Let’s move on to the next step in this Quora Ads and affiliate marketing tutorial.
Step 2: Select a product
In our case, we are promoting a ClickBank product, so just head over to clickbank.com to sign up.
Make sure to fill in the details correctly – ClickBank has some triggers that can put a block on your account if the information isn’t accurate.
Then just head over to the marketplace and select a product – in our case we are promoting EZ Battery Reconditioning.
For Quora Ads, make sure to stay away from any health and wealth offers with unrealistic claims as well as any pills or supplements.
Step 3: Create a landing page & thank you page
Next, we have to create our landing page. You can use any page builder you like, but I use Unbounce for their dynamic text replacement capability and flexibility in editing.
I spend some time building out the landing page and thank you page, but it’s generally pretty simple.
Just check out my YouTube Unbounce playlist if you want more information about specific component of building out a page, such as adding a favicon or setting up a custom domain.
We would need to then make sure that the landing page button is taking us to the thank you page, and that the thank you page is taking users to the affiliate offer.
Step 4: Set up conversion tracking
Tracking isn’t easy for an affiliate, especially when using Quora ads (since there is no affiliate network + Quora Ads integration).
However it is absolutely necessary because when you’re doing affiliate marketing, ultimately you are paying for sales, not for clicks or impressions…
I use a very specific tracking tool (ClickMagick) that allows me to track any affiliate product.

Step 5: Set up an autoresponder
An autoresponder allows you to gather your most valuable asset (your email list/audience) while paying for traffic or reaping the results of time spent and hard work of SEO.
You can use any autoresponder you like, but I use GetResponse and it hasn’t disappointed me yet.
We simply grab the API key from GetResponse and plug it into Unbounce and voila – we have now set up the email automation as well with our Unbounce landing page.

Step 6: Promote on Quora Ads
Finally, the fun part. We are now ready to create our ads and promote on Quora.
I don’t spend too much time going over every little detail, but I do go over everything you do need to create your campaign.
I do cover everything you have to know about Quora ads including remarketing, tracking pixels, and lead generation campaigns in this video however:
But you would simply click some buttons, fill in the blanks, and have your campaign up and running in no time!
And that’s how you do affiliate marketing using Quora Ads!
