At the beginning of your writing journey, your family and friends can be your biggest supporters.

Let them know you’ve been published or self-published an article by sending them a friend link.

You can find the option Copy Friend Link in the three-dot menu at the bottom of your story.

Ask them to help spread the word and share your story with their network.

Anyone who gets a friend link has free access to your story.

#2 — Post on social media and share it with your writing network

Post your story on:

  • Twitter — my favorite

👉🏻 Good to know! CEO of Medium, Ev Williams, is co-founder of Twitter.

  • LinkedIn — has a lot of potential
  • Quora — that’s the future
  • Instagram — post a picture and promote your article in the description
  • Reddit — be cautious because Reddit hates self-promotion. It has to be valuable for the user.
  • Facebook — there are several Facebook groups where you can share your posts
