It’s Time to Change Up My Medium Strategy
Because what I’ve been doing isn’t working! Is your strategy working?
I’ve been on Medium for several years now. At times, I’ve made some decent money. But for the most part, it’s been a lot of bouncing around. $5 one month, several hundred dollars the next month.
That’s not working for me.
I’ve decided that I need to change strategies and clean up my account.
What are my Medium goals?
I’m not all about the money. But I do want to see my efforts rewarded. I enjoy knowing that people are reading what I write and finding some value in it. I can see what kind of articles do get reads, views and earnings, so why aren’t I making use of that information?
I don’t want Medium to be all business like for me. I like writing personal stories. But I think I’ve strayed from personal and useful to personal and “why should I care about this?”
So, my Medium goals are:
- Write on topics I enjoy.
- Narrow down my niche.
- Make $100 a month consistently (or more, but $100 regularly would be nice).
How will I accomplish those goals?
I’m going to combine personal and useful
There are a few topics I think I could write about on a regular basis that I have personal knowledge of and can be interesting and have some value for anyone who reads them. I think if I keep some element of personal in my Medium articles, I’ll enjoy writing.
So, I just need to decide which topics I want to write about most that might also make decide money.
What niche should I do?
I haven’t decided which niche I want to write about on Medium but I have narrowed it down to these:
- Side hustles
- Freelance/fiction writing
- Being a Gen-X woman
I have a lot of those articles already but I also have a lot of other articles that don’t fit in any of those niches. I’m going to save and then delete the articles that don’t fit into the niche…
