How I became a 2xTop Writer Without Writing in Publications?
One rule that boosted my growth massively.
I got 950+ followers within 5 months.
If you go through my profile, you will see that I believe in self-publishing. I do not like the lengthy submission deadlines of Medium publications.
I first published a story at the end of April 2022. At that time, I had no idea about the Top Writer’s Badge and how a writer gets it. My sole motivation for creating a Medium account was to write.
I started without any consistency or plan and gradually learned the basics after experimenting.
Then I decided to publish regularly. I wanted to know if the stats would change or not. If so, then by how much?
I took Medium seriously. I published and engaged with other writers passionately.
Here we go —
I gained almost 1K followers and became a Top writer in two tags.
Throughout the time, one thing was common. In each article,
I focused on providing value.
Yes, the formula that can lead you to crazy growth on the platform is here: provide value in your content.
If your content is valuable, you will keep your old and new readers with you.
How can you know if your article has value or not?
Before hitting the publish button, ask yourself:
- What do I have for the readers in this post?
- What will I get if I read it as a reader?
- Is it going to add value to them or not?
Once you get the answers, then publish.
Instead of trying stupid strategies, focus on providing value to the audience.
You will get:
- Better read ratio and more views.
- Email subscribers.
- The Top Writer’s badge as well.
Do your articles have some sort of value?
Thanks for reading and take care :)
