Quora seems to be the new kid on the block at the moment, appears to have hit that critical point where a lot of people are looking into it and wondering whether it is worthwhile investing time in.
Chris Brogan raises an interesting view – http://www.chrisbrogan.com/how-quora-could-get-interesting/
It would be interesting as Chris suggests to interview fascinating people quiz them about their life, views etc.
In terms of marketing for lawyers I’m not convinced of it’s value, like a few other UK lawyers I have dipped my toe in but haven’t yet worked out a marketing angle on it.
In my experience most people asking for legal advice on forums are not prepared to pay for legal advice. It might raise your social media profile but at the moment it’s not one I am going to invest a lot of time in.
