How Much Does Medium Pay Its Writers?

  • 2 min read

Spoiler: It’s absolutely worth writing on this platform.

I started my writing journey in December 2020.

I have now published over 800 articles on Medium.

In 18 months on this platform, I’ve earned about $15k+ from the Medium Partner Program and $1,200 in bonuses.

This is the #1 lesson I’ve learned:

You need to…

  • consistently publish content (1–7 articles a week ) to show up and get views from Medium members
  • post helpful and insightful content
  • write for your audience

Some writers experience major hits and earn $2,000 or even $20,000 with one single story.

Still, the majority need to write consistently over a long period of time to make money.

Generally, there are three milestones:

  • First, you earn your first $1.
  • Second, you join the $100 only 6–8% of writers are in.
  • Third, you join the $1,000 club.

I’m curious. What milestones have you reached so far?
