Growing on Medium is so easy.

But the problem is most newbie writers don’t know how to grow and play the Medium writing game effectively. That’s why they struggle.

One second, I’ve been there.

I used to suck at writing and growing on Medium.

And one day, I cracked the code (it’s a long story, I’ll tell you someday)

Now I get hundreds and thousands of views on my content passively.


And today, I’ll teach you everything I learned about writing and growing on Medium.

Let’s start:

1. Category Innovation

Don’t write about 10 different topics.

That’s a big mistake.

Want to grow on Medium? Select your one core niche and write on that niche every single day. 99% of Medium writer writes on different topics and when they publish something new, they get 37 views (an arbitrary number) and say — Medium sucks.

You stupid Medium doesn’t suck, your writing strategy sucks.

Here’s the thing: when you write about different topics you gather different types of audiences, so there is a high chance that they won’t interact with your every single piece of content, because they have multiple interests. This causes you low engagement, thus slow growth.

I call this audience differentiation.

On the other hand, if you write about one topic thus you get the targeted followers on your niche, and whenever you post something new they engage with your content, they clap, comment, and share.

And this is how you grow.

Here is how it works:

2. Headline Mastery

A Headline makes or breaks your content.

The thing is: no one gonna read your content if your headline sucks, it doesn’t matter how valuable and informative your post is. The reader only clicks the headline if they found it clear, helpful, and unique.

But crafting great headlines is a skill, you can learn it along the way as you go on the journey. It’s a process.

But to teach you about headline mastery a little bit here’s how I think through:

Every headline you create should have to have these 3 things:

  • Who is this for?
  • What is this about?
  • And what’s the benefit of reading it?


3. Engage Like A Boss

Engagement is a part of your writing and growth on Medium.

Let me say this straight to you: engage as much as you can. Because if do not engage with other writers, it’s hard to grow, no matter how many times you publish per day. Also, Medium has changed its algorithm completely, it’s not as it used to be.

So, find like-minded people in your category and engage with them on a daily basis.

4. Publish Often

Want to increase your growth success ratio?

Medium wants quantity. If you publish 1x per week you’re not going anywhere. In order to grow faster, you’ll have to spin the wheel more and more.

I would recommend you publish 1x per day or 5 times per week. Not less than that.

Now, how I can say these things so confidently?

Here’s what you need to know about me:

All because of my strategies.

Final Touch

I can’t stress this enough.

Also, keep in mind don’t look for shortcuts, hacks, or tricks. Because there are no such things. All you have to do is work strategically and smartly.

I hope this helps.
