How I got 173 Followers in 30 Days

Growing my Medium Blog from 13 followers in September to over 190 followers as of today wasn’t a bed of roses. Mind you, I wasn’t a writer when I got started, hence, it took me over 3 days to finish…

Growing my Medium Blog from 13 followers in September to over 190 followers as of today wasn’t a bed of roses.

I found out about medium while searching for ways to make money online on YouTube.

Mind you, I wasn’t a writer when I got started, hence, it took me over 3 days to finish one article back then. lol.

I wrote about generic stuff and things that appealed to me.

I didn’t know about Search Engine Optimisation SEO, Keyword research, niche research, etc.

I thought all that is required is just for me to write.

Armed with my willpower, amateur writing skills, and the hunger to ‘write till I blow up on medium’ mentality, I started writing on medium in December 2020.

My Initial Results on Medium were depressing…

At first, it was easy for me to write three articles per day, and I wrote articles such as;

Parkinson’s Law: The Secret to Managing your Time Effectively in 2021,

Start Saying “No” Today

and,

The Morning Ritual Habit.

My first article on Medium,

How to Command Attention with your Brand

has just 2 views (Please check it out and add a view or read to the counter, Thank you.)

I wrote a total of 7 articles in December 2020.

I was discouraged because of the poor view and read rates I was getting.

The few subscribers I had were my friends, family members, and acquaintances.

These were just 6 people!

To cut the long story short, I dumped Medium for the next 6 months.

I moved on to other things working on Medium in December affected my Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing KDP business, Graphic Design Consulting, Social Media Consulting, and Crypto Business, hence I had to dump Medium and focus on them for the next 6 months.

The next time I logged into the Medium was in May 2021.

I posted a few articles here and there, but still, my medium was a dead as night.

Again I dumped it in May 2021 and moved on.

What was your turning point?

However, in October 2021, I stumbled on an article by Khadejah titled “I Wrote on Medium Every Single Day For a Year And Here’s Everything I’ve Learned.” That was my turning point!

She wrote about how she wrote at least one article per day consistently for 365 days and the results were outrageous.

She got into the top 1,000 writers on Medium and earned a nifty $938.00 in a single month.

Boy! I was hooked!

I dusted my Medium Blog and started writing the same day and in October my followers grew to 25 and in November it was at 193 and has been on an uptrend ever since.

I will write another article in January 2022 to the December growth rate, Watch out for that epic piece!

I was struggling to get views between August, September, and early October. In fact, at some point, I had just 28 cumulative views and 3 Reads.

What MagicTricks did you Use?

I have seen a few ‘clickbaity’ titles on Medium and on Youtube where people promise to show you “secret” ways to get 100 followers and stuff, either by follow for follow or some community of writers where you get to follow each other and all…I haven’t tried all those methods so I can’t say.

All I can tell you is that; keyword research, writing on Medium daily, publishing in good publications, Rinse and Repeat, are super effective ways to grow on Medium.

These are my MagicTricks!

Is 100 followers on Medium possible in 30 Days?

YES, it is!

Consistency is key! Set a goal to write at least one article a day and send pitches to as many publications as possible.

I didn’t talk about niching down here but you can find it here.

You will need to niche down and streamline your articles as much as possible.

There you have it! That is how I got over 190 Followers on Medium in 30 Days.
