Writer Jenn Leach offers up a case study that explains how earnings can work on Medium.

This is How Much Medium Paid Me for 20,000 Views | by Jenn Leach | Writers’ Blokke | Dec, 2021 | Medium

The bottom line:

Leach earned $548.80 for a story that garnered 20,000 views.

Here’s what she had to say about that:

I am pretty pleased with this number.

I daydream about if I could write 10 stories a month at $550 each ($5,550). That would be magical.

What’s your story? Are your numbers similar to Leach’s or have you had a different experience?
