Better Marketing Is on a Semi-Hiatus

  • 3 min read

You didn’t get any feedback? It’s not your fault.

I’ve been wondering why I haven’t heard back from Better Marketing, one of Medium’s biggest publications for all things marketing.

I’ve also heard from other writers that they haven’t heard back — not even a rejection letter.

So I put on my detective hat and started putting the pieces of the puzzle together for you and me.

Terrie Schweitzer is no longer an editor at Better Marketing

Better Marketing’s former editor-in-chief Terrie Schweitzer isn’t an editor anymore.

Plus, she isn’t employed at coach.me, the company of Medium’s current CEO Tony Stubblebine, anymore.

Terrie has been employed by Medium since November 2022. Initially, she started as a Content Creator. In March 2023, she was named Director of Content Curation.

This is an important role for Terrie because Medium’s new Boost system puts her at the helm of Medium’s entire curation process.

If you’re reading this, congratulations, Terrie!

Better Marketing is on semi-hiatus

If you look at Better Marketing’s homepage, you may have seen that the publication is now publishing only one story per day or even less.

In the fall of 2022, there were still many more articles on the homepage.

This is good news for writers like Christopher Kokoski, whose article was published.

His story will stay at the top of the homepage much longer and hopefully get more visitors as a result.

Terrie shared that the sister publication Better Humans will continue to be published by Coach.me.

“For help, try the Discord group or support@coach.me”, she shared in her OOO reply.

As far as I know, Berenike Schriewer, Ph.D. is the new editor-in-chief and is still accepting new writers. I applied yesterday.

Due to Better Marketing’s hiatus, no new authors are being accepted at this time.

What to do?

If you’re already a Better Marketing writer, you can try your luck and see if your story gets feedback and gets published.

If you don’t want to wait, I can totally understand. I’m a busy mom and I love it when my stories get published within seven days because I don’t have that much time to write longer stories.

One of my stories has been in the queue for over two weeks now. The other story I wanted to publish with Better Marketing, I submitted to another publication.

If you’re not a writer for Better Marketing, you can’t submit it right now. You’ll have to wait until they open their doors again.
