This one’s a complete no-brainer.
If you’re reading this post, you probably already know what Medium is. But for those who don’t, Medium is essentially a blogging platform.
That’s the ‘quick n’ dirty’ explanation.
I use Pinterest to bring more readers to my Medium articles by treating Medium as if it were my very own blog.
So…when I write a blog post, the first thing I do is create a pin (or 3) for that post, and load it to Pinterest.
I take those exact same steps to bring new readers to my Medium posts, with one small addition; instead of using the ‘regular’ post URL, Medium has something called a “friend link” that you can utilize to bypass the paywall. This allows those who want to read your post without having to actually join Medium if they don’t care to right now.
You can find the “friend link” by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen, on any of your published articles.
Use the Medium ‘friend link’ code as the URL for your pin instead of using the ‘regular’ URL, and watch your Medium traffic grow.
