“Quora with a Business Model”: Clarity Launches Clarity Answers

Today, Clarity Answers launched to allow entrepreneurs to get answers to their pressing business questions.

In the same vein as Quora, Clarity Answers lets you ask a question and wait for answers from experts. The idea is to drive usage of the paid Clarity platform, where you can buy consulting sessions with experts over the phone.

“It’s kind of like Quora – only with a business model,” says Clarity. “Many experts make over $1000/month.”

After you ask a question, moderators work to make sure it gets answered quickly (most within 15 minutes). Experts get to showcase their answers on their profile, and the Q&As become searchable – creating a database of knowledge and expertise.

Clarity now has over 20,000 experts, and sometimes it’s hard to find the right one for your business. The Answers feature is designed to help you do so; if you like someone’s advice, you might consider signing up for a phone session. In their beta test, 5 percent of answers turned into paid call requests.

Clarity Answers is available immediately on Clarity’s web and iPhone app.
