and should get compensated for it properly
Many writers I’m talking to are telling me they don’t like marketing.
Well, guess what I tell them?
I tell them that they are already in the middle of marketing their writing and also promoting Medium.
Every single piece of content you publish is for attracting readers and followers.
Plus, it’s for attracting new paying Medium members.
Medium’s goal is to acquire more and more users. Especially paying users.
This means, that everything you post on Medium is marketing for that platform itself.
But it comes with a catch.
You can collaborate with Medium, share your referral link, and generate a recurring income of about $2 per referred member.
BUT 50% of users are reading on the app.
If they click the link on the app, NO ONE can sign up!
