Medium is a completely different writing platform!
Never dare to think you wasted your time writing the story, especially if you believe the story you’ve written is good. Don’t get upset or demotivated if your story doesn’t perform well in the first few days of publishing.
Your effort is never wasted on Medium.
Medium doesn’t work like Twitter or LinkedIn where you only have 24 hours to go viral or flopped. Meaning, when you publish your content on Twitter or LinkedIn, you’ll get to know whether the post is going viral or not within the first 2-6 hours.
Twitter and LinkedIn content has a short lifespan.
Medium stories, on the other hand, have a longer lifespan. They might not go viral in the first few hours or days of publishing, but if you’ve done a good job writing the stories, they can perform well after a few weeks or months.
This has happened to me many times. For example, look at this story:
I published this story in November 2022, it didn’t get enough views at the beginning. But after 5 months, around April 2023 it got so much traction and now it’s one of my most viewed stories on Medium.
So what do I recommend to you?
Put all your effort into writing the story. Write the best possible story. But don’t get upset when the story doesn’t perform well at the beginning, because it might perform well after a month.
Your effort is never wasted on Medium!
I hope you've learned something new today. Want more? Well, this is exactly what I can help you with. I teach writers how to grow and monetize their work on Medium while doing everything differently. Just like I did! Three reasons you should trust me:
1. I've grown my Medium account from 0 to 6,000+ followers without publishing a single story in publications.
2. Not only that, I also managed to make over $2,000 without joining the Medium Partner Program.
3. I helped over 100 Medium writers do the same. You can check the feedback and results in this story, which is my ebook Medium Masterclass.
The good news is, you can also get the same results and increase your view count, get new followers, and monetize your audience writing on Medium.
To do that, you can either read my Medium stories, which will cost you some time, or you can buy the Medium Masterclass ebook to save time and energy.
Keep crushing it on Medium!
