Q & A sites – a part of social search — are a growing trend on the Internet today and provides immense leverage for entrepreneurs looking to promote their products, services or businesses. Users ask relevant questions on these sites waiting for experts (or other users) to answer their queries. Business owners too can leverage the Social Search scene by being a part of the vibrant Q &A community on sites related to business and entrepreneurship:
Business.com: Askoholic posted a great review on business.com Q & A section and I urge you to read up more about it to get a better understanding on how business.com Q &A works for you. Business.com is blessed with some great, targeted traffic and that can be good for you as a business owner since all you need to do is to establish your expertise and provide valuable information in the form of answers to the information-hungry users on the site. The traffic there should help you leverage your presence on the web to an extent.
Focus.com: Although focus.com has its focus on not just business but also on a few other related functions such as technology, operations and human resources, it is still a great site to be on and get your voice out. The layout is great and it makes for a great investment of your time out there. Put your business up and start contributing valuable information there for the benefit of your readers while tapping into a little traffic that should come your way.
Start-up nation: It’s been around for a long time and I have always been active on this community. Start-up Nation has grown from a simple forum to a full-fledged business/entrepreneurial community by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. The users are always ready to burst at your questions and answer your problems with enthusiasm and interest. You will rarely find spam answers to your questions and some users go to great length to give you advice for free that consultants would charge a bomb for.
