60 Medium Publications That Can Nominate Your Stories for A Boost (New Video)

  • 3 min read

Medium writers live or die by the Boost. So it’s smart to know how the system works.

With its Boost, Medium is moving in an amazing direction.

Hundreds of people have already seen and felt what it’s like to get Boosted!

As promised, I’ll continue the All About Medium’s Boost series.

Today I want to pull back the curtain and dive a bit deeper into how Medium is teaming up with publication editors to find the best stories and hidden gems.

Medium’s Community of Publication Editors Who Can Nominate Stories for A Boost

On Medium, there are 8,000 active publications.

Currently, there are about 100 nominators that are having a major say in what gets Boosted.

From the feedback I’ve received, most people don’t know who Medium’s Community Nominators are, which publications are participating in the program, and what nominators do.

Ariel Meadow Stallings from Medium explained the process in our interview on YouTube:

The 3 Step-Boost-System

1 — A Community Nominator in the Boost Beta program can suggest a few stories every week for Boost consideration and thus help Medium to find hidden gems.

2 — Medium’s internal Curation Team reviews the nominations to see if it fits with Medium’s Distribution Guidelines.

3 — If the nominated story is a good fit with the guidelines, the internal Curation Team approves the nomination for wider distribution and eventually Boosts it!

If this happens, the nominator receives up to $900 USD per month.

Who are those Nominators?

Ariel shared the names of 60 Boosters and their publications. In my latest YouTube video, I highlight all of them.

They have the “taste” to select excellent stories in their area of expertise from across the platform.

Ariel shared the names of 60 nommers.

In my latest YouTube video, I introduce all 60 nommers and their publications from A to Z:

What are you waiting for?

Pick a publication from the list and share your best stories to help Medium’s Nominators find and support you.

As Patrick Stewart, nommer from The Taoist Online, stated:

“You are good enough!

Medium just needs help finding you.”

I write for Better Marketing, The Generator, and The Taoist Online. Definitely have to write for more than only those three.

Would love to know whether you write for one of the publications! Is there a topic missing?
