The Old 100 Followers Threshold on Medium Is Dead

  • 1 min read

And I like it

On Medium and YouTube, there are many stories about “How to get your first 100 followers”.

In the past, I also shared several stories on how to reach this milestone and which publications can support you.

Good news.

You don’t need this advice anymore.

Medium lowered the barrier of entry

You don’t need to have 100 followers to join the Medium Partner Program (MPP), partner with Medium, and earn money for your writing.

If you want to earn money on Medium, you simply have to become a paying member, apply for the program, and get accepted.

Then, simply start writing and get paid.

It’s super easy.

Awesome news.

However, I bet you also want to grow your audience.

So how long does it take to get 100 followers? In my case, it took about 2 months.

Rome wasn’t built in a day! Take your time and be patient.
