Asanais a fast-growing app that makes it easier for teams to track their work to achieve greater clarity, accountability, and efficiency. To build awareness for its brand and product, while at the same time creating and defining a completely new industry segment within the collaboration software space, Asana turned to Quora.
Unite paid ads & thought leadership
Asana used Topic Targeting to place ads next to content about project management, product management, productivity, and of course the Asana topic itself.
Asana also built an organic presence through the voice of their co-founder and head of product, Justin Rosenstein. His answer to a 2015 question on top productivity tips was viewed more than 432,000 times and was featured in articles from Forbes, Inc., Time and Quartz.
Contextual relevance is key
The Asana team created ads that emphasized how their product could help people “work smarter” and eliminate emails, calendars and sticky notes. They also included the term “work tracking,” to help build recognition for the emerging category.
Higher quality traffic
Emilie Cole, who leads Communication & PR at Asana, notes that “Quora is at the top of the list, when it comes to places that are great for reaching the people we want to reach within the
context of an authentic conversation. From the click-through rates, and the time they spend on the Asana site, it looks like people are interested in learning about our product. We’re looking forward to continuing our investment as we build Quora as a core part of our customer acquisition program.”
