As a writer, you’re probably seeking ways to get more exposure for your work.
What if I told you there was a website where you could publish your writing and tap into a potential audience of 30,000 people per month?
And you can even make some impressive money at the same time?
Medium is a blogging and publishing platform developed by Twitter co-founder Evan Williams. It’s a fantastic place to share new articles or republish old blog posts and reach more readers.
Since I first began publishing there three years ago, Medium has helped me grow my email list by thousands of subscribers. One post I published brought in 500 new subscribers in a single month.
Additionally, Medium has helped me attract new clients for my writing and web design services, including one for a $2,240 project. But you can also make money through the platform without having to sell your own products or services.
In 2018, Medium rolled out the partner program. It allows you to make money based on how much engagement your Medium posts receive.
Yes, you read that right.
You can make money just by publishing your posts on Medium. And they don’t only have to be non-fiction articles! You can publish poetry and fiction too.
In April, I republished ten of my old blog posts and made $843.73 through Medium’s partner program.
55% of writers who wrote at least one story for members earned money in April. And some of those writers are making a full-time income through the platform.
If your posts are languishing unread on your blog and you’re struggling to grow an audience…
Or if you’re marketing your work like crazy but your email list is growing at a snail’s pace…
Or if you would love to start a side hustle with your writing but don’t know how to get started…
Then Medium is the perfect platform for you.
Today, I’m going to share with you how to set up an account and all of the strategies I’ve used to turn Medium readers into subscribers and build my audience while also making money on the platform.
