Guide for Pros and Newbies in-Depth (Earn More Money)
1. Use Your Own Picture on your profile (Earn More Money)
In the Medium world (and especially when you’re new, learning how to share your content), people follow people who they know, like, and trust. (Earn More Money)
How can you know, like, and trust someone who doesn’t show their face or have a compelling story?
When someone looks at your “about me” article, what do you want them to see?
A crappy page put together as an afterthought, or one built to draw users into your personal or brand story?
2. Prepare “About Me” Article
Here is I wanna share my “About Me“ article as an example with you.
Write an “About Me” article to explain you better to your followers or those who want to follow you.
Give your “About Me” article some love
If you don’t have an “About Me” article, you’re doing it wrong. Building one really is a must before starting to write.
3. Apply to Publications
Publications will help you to increase your visibility and gain followers. This is a really big advantage on Medium otherwise it’s quite difficult to build an audience by yourself.
You should choose the correct Publication to share contents and the target group of publication must match with yours.
4. Format your article to make you look like an expert
Just like beautiful images increase the reader’s time on page and engagement, so does a well-formatted piece.
Let’s face it: People don’t read everything word-for-word anymore. The average internet reader today skims. There’s just too much content and too little time to do anything else.
That’s where formatting comes in. A well-formatted post makes it easy for your readers to skim (to see if the post is worth their time), then dive in if they feel it is.
So how do you go about formatting when sharing content?
Here are some pointers:
- Divide long text with headers and subheaders
- Use bulleted and numbered lists to point out key information
- Bold and italicize key points (but don’t use both at the same time)
- Add quality images ( I’ve highly recommended using picture under the subtitle )
5. Use your audience to choose topics
Randomly picking topics based on what you think your readers might like is a lot like playing the lottery. Maybe you win, maybe you don’t. But what if you let your audience tell you what they want to hear about? That’s a guaranteed win.
Here are a few ways you can find out:
Reach out to them on social media or via email or with their comment and just ask!
Read the comments people left on your articles or on similar articles.
Go to publications in your niche and see what people write about.
6. Do regular content audits
As much as I would love for this not to be the case, not everything we publish remains evergreen indefinitely.
Regardless of your niche, there are always new developments, new ideas, new things to write about, and also new things that relate back to your older content.
The simple fact is that no one can predict the future. So even if you think that the piece you’ve written will remain timeless due to the topic matter it touches on, this is only a wish and you can never be certain.
For that reason, doing regular content audits is a great idea, especially if you’ve had your articles or blog online for more than 12 months — perhaps not the thing to worry about if you’re just learning how to start a write or blogging for the first time, but still worth keeping in mind.
The goal of a content audit is simple: check which of your posts are still relevant, which need updating, which can be removed entirely, which can be consolidated.
7. Share your contents consistently
I’ve left this topic to the end because I wanted to take your interest until here.
This is the most important point if you want to grow fast and earn more on Medium. I’ve shared 50 articles since my start in the middle of November.
It means sharing articles day by day or in 2 days. If you are serious, you must same.
Don’t forget, Each article give more experiences to you from your followers with their responses.
