  • 5 min read

So can you and boost your income.

I always say:

You can absolutely be a success!

You only need some help to figure out the puzzle of online writing.

I was asked by the community to write more about people like you and me — not the Top Writers of the Top Writers… haha. 😆

I can totally understand.

So here’s a wonderful WOW-worthy success story of my student (from The Medium Kickstarter Boot Camp) and friend June Kirri.

June is a mom, a writer, and a powerful woman.

She writes about #Culture, #Mental Health, and #Parenting.

Within only a few months on Medium, she has grown her following from zero to around 900 people.

It took me 9 months to get there…

…but she got there fairly quickly. That’s incredible.

To be honest, she is totally blowing me out of the water in regard to her writing strategy.

So what’s her secret?

As you might know, I recommend using timely news hooks.

I know right now you want to know what a timely news hook is.

So, I, for instance, write about:

June also applies this strategy.

Here are some of her headlines:

Some of her stories got more than 70 comments and over 5K claps!

What makes timely news hooks so powerful?

First, Everyone loves news. It grabs attention — especially if it’s a human interest story that includes emotive content.

Second, people google it.

When they google for news, chances are high that they come across your story.

Why?

Medium has a high Domain Authority (DA).

This metric ‘predicts how likely a website is to rank in search engine result pages.’

If you start a personal blog, it will always get a DA score of 1, which is pretty bad. No one sees your stories on Google.

Medium, on the other side, is on the level of brands such as amazon or Facebook.

Here’s Medium’s DA:

ahrefs
  • Scores between 40 and 50 = average.
  • 50–60 = good
  • above 60 = excellent

With 95 it’s above 60.

This means it’s excellent and very likely that your story on this platform is to rank in search engine result pages on Google.

This way, you can gain external views. In the example below, it’s whopping 11K views for a 1-minute read.
