What is  Medium?

Medium is one of the first platforms to publish long-term content. It provides a voice for creative writers, freelance journalists, and even writers and It combines the creativity of writing with the collective efforts of social networking. Medium is a great way to see how your audience reacts to your content.

 

Tips for Succeeding on Medium 

Here are the top ten tips to succeed on Medium and get them to go hot. 

 

Content 

Content is the major attraction for readers. Write the content that tells the reader a story. They don’t want to read a personal story. It must add value to their lives. Talk to them, write to them as if you are talking to your friends. Use easy language and relatable words. 

Remember, not every Medium article you publish will be a  hit. However, if you think your article should be doing well, you can delete it and republish it.

 

Image

Visuals increase engagement. Always try to include attractive images in your content. Spend time making your profile attractive. Otherwise, no one will visit it. A proper image can help you convey your article. You can go through the designing websites to create an impactful image.

Post Timing

According to some surveys, people spend leisurely time on their mobile phones on weekends. Posting content in the morning results in higher engagement. As most of the audience starts their day in the morning. 

 

Time Management 

You must write daily. Make sure to have writing and editing days. Write, edit, write, continue until you die. Aim to write a thousand words or at least one word a day. Make it a habit to write from 1–1000 words every day.

 

Presentation 

Successful presentations are understandable, memorable, and emotional! The post must look pleasant and attractive. No one will even read your story if it is not formatted well. Format your story well and use captivating graphics.

 

Payment

You won't make any money in your first year on Medium. Continue! You can make a few hundred on your first story. Most writers average $20 per story. Most writers make $0 for a story. Keep writing! The best writers have made thousands of pirates. Don't leave your day job and don’t quit Medium.

 

Followers 

This is the simplest of all the other tips. Whenever people engage with your content through recommendations or likes, it indicates that your writing interests you. Keep them engaged!

Social Media 

Medium automatically syncs with your followers on Twitter and Facebook. It helps you get new readers into your funnel. Ultimately, it grows all your social media platforms together.

 

The Publications 

Pitch to the publishers! Your story is useless if it is only published on your profile. The publication helps spread your story. It will help you grow your reach beyond just your followers. Getting featured in a big publication can give you a huge boost.

I put about $302,000 worth of bitcoin in Coinbase and was locked out a few days later and unable to get back into my account. I employed all methods of recovering my account back but it happened that my account was compromised by a ripper who executed a virus into my system thereby gaining access to my wallet. Worried and perplexed, I found a specialist ( HACKSTARS101 @ WORKMAIL . COM) who tactfully regained access but on getting back all coins were already gone. He traced the coin via a signature print down to a foreign wallet and recovered everything back. You can hope to recover your funds with his technicality.
