    (said in near panic) First, you lowered your price down from $1,295.99 (can I get the difference back as Alpha tester?) Then, um, is this some crazy marketing strategy? I think you guaranteed me first page placement for 10 years? Oh, got it! You’re trying to weed out the wanna-be’s!

    Thanks for the 32 lb paper weight certificate! I got two new clients yesterday and they each have 9,281 followers in Quora already because of my Ninja Skills! Wax on Wax off brother!

    ((ummm, are ya going to paypal me back the difference?))


    Disclaimer: Never met Steve before! Ran into him because of @SeanMcGinnis post to #usGuys. Unlike the horde following me I’ve actually answered a question or two on Quora… Still not sure if it will take off or Jump the Shark first.

    I almost missed this being a spoof. I had a tweet ready to go that said “give me a f@#cking break!” I think Quora is WAY overrated. Lots of noise, very little real signal, and censorship by administration to boot! But you are so correct, it won’t take long for the social media charlatans to peddle this crap to simpletons looking for more instant pudding. Well done. Bret

  3. Ann Handley says:

    This is hilarious. I just love you Steve.

    STOP!!! Crying over this one…. so true though… the noise level around Quora since Jan 1 has been crazy. Everyone rushing in to be the “first” so 2 years from now they can be the next Brogan, Armano, Naslund, etc…

    Thanks for the morning laugh my friend…

  5. Well Steve, I am just ashamed of you. Making fun of Quora like this. Don’t you know that it is THE next thing on the horizon?!? You know that becoming a guru is all that matters in social media.

    Loved the post, I really could not stop laughing while reading it – even funnier because you can bet by the end of this year someone will be teaching a class like this for real!

  6. Does this certification come with a badge for my weblog?

  7. Brian Frankson says:

    Do not forget the the impressive “QNC” designation (Quora Ninja Certified) that can go on your business card. The Quora-nation needs you. Good one Steve, made my day.

  8. Kristof says:

    Thanks for the laugh.

    I was cringing is angst thinking, “Please, oh pleas, the social space doesn’t need any more of this” when I got to the “spoof” part. Unfortunately, you *just know* someone is going to try this.

  9. Is there a Portuguese version for the course. I would like to anticipate the Quora start up in Brazil… and be the first. As we know, tbe the first is critical for the success, as say all marketing experts!

    I found this post hysterical. My Quora profile now says: Biopharma marketer, definitely not a Quora ninja. In the mean time this Quora rookie is gaining some real green belt experience, and having some fun while doing. It’s definitely got me thinking. What about a Quora Ninja widget / badge for your blog, FB and LinkedIn accounts: I am a Quora certified Thought Leader Ninja.
