What are best practices for Topic Targeting?
- Leverage topics that are relevant to you. Look for keywords you use on other advertising platforms that have been effective. These keywords can translate well into Quora topics.
- Identify keywords within your ad copy that might align with existing topics on Quora.
- Your company or product may have an existing topic on Quora, which can be added to your targeting.
- Your competitors, their products, or their services may have existing topics on Quora you can target. You can also explore related companies or partner industries.
- Expand your reach. In the same campaign, use Topic Targeting and Interest Targeting in separate ad sets to test which targeting type works best for your goals.
- Strike a balance. Make sure you are targeting relevant topics and selecting enough topics to ensure reach. Being too specific limits your campaign's potential reach, whereas selecting irrelevant topics may lower lead quality and hurt performance.
