Share a story, share an idea with Medium and earn. It is as simple as writing an article on their editor, adding an image or embed a YouTube video or tweets and clicking publish! Select the option to allow the curators review and distribute the story via topics on the Medium website. If they decide to distribute your story, it means that your post is eligible for the site’s metered paywall. If you are in the Medium Partner Program, this option also enables your story to earn money. Not selecting the option means it will be distributed only to your followers.
All your stories can be seen on your public profile page and stories page. Clapping is a way that the readers show appreciation and recommend it to their respective followers.
The clapping actually helps determine the amount of money you may earn per story. When members clap for a specific story, a portion of their $5 membership goes to you as the author.
You earn money from any stories you submitted, but only those that were set eligible for earning. Medium recognizes quality thinking and connects you to a highly targeted audience.
Publish your best work on their website and join the Medium Partner Program so you can earn money sharing your story and expertise to the world. The program compensates you for the quality of your post.
