A content-sharing platform to boost your Medium reads

Things are changing here at Medium.

Starting tomorrow.

Here’s a brief rundown:

The short version: In order to get paid on the platform, new MPP members will need to also be paying Medium members.

Additionally, rewards will be based on types of content (with an edge going to personal stories) and on engagement from followers. That is, do the people who follow you also actually read your content?

One thing that hasn’t changed: You still earn based on read time from Medium members.

One way to find more potential readers who may become followers who actually read your content is by sharing your Medium pieces on ManyStories.

I’ve been doing this for about six months now and I’ve noticed my stats slowly improving — more read time from Medium members, more followers.

Plus, I share my work from NewsBreak and Substack on ManyStories as well.

It’s not magic and it doesn’t change your numbers overnight, but it can be an effective way to reach more Medium members and to generally get some engagement on your content — whether it originates on Medium or another platform.

What outlets do you use to promote your Medium work?

In case you’d like a bit of fiction:
