6 Ways To Make Money on Medium Without The Medium Partner Program
Sadly, the Medium Partner Program is not available to every writer. If you are not based in certain European countries, the United States, and other Stripe-enabled countries you cannot enroll in the Medium Partner Program. This means that you can’t earn money when Medium paying members read your content.
If you still want to take advantage of the massive reach that Medium offers, there are other money-making opportunities available. Obviously, Medium won’t send you a monthly paycheck but you can still build a decent income by writing valuable content on the platform.
Here are five ways to make money without the Medium Partner Program:
Drive Traffic to Your Blog
If you have a monetized blog, use Medium to drive traffic to your blog. Medium has a Domain Authority of 95 which means that search engines trust Medium over many other sites on the Internet.
Domain authority is a search engine ranking score that measures the authority of a site. The scores are ranked from 0 to 100 meaning that Medium is one of the highest-ranking websites on the web.
Placing your blog links on Medium will help to drive more traffic to your blog.
You can repost your blog content on Medium however, I wouldn’t advise this if you want to drive traffic to your site. Create unique, valuable, and engaging content for Medium. If you post three times a week on your blog, post twice a week on Medium and add a call to action at the end of each article.
Link to your blog in the body of the article and link to your opt-in page in the call to action. When readers input their name and email address, you can send them valuable, informative content once a week from your blog.
Build an Email List
Your email list is your cash cow. Use Medium to build your list, if you are an affiliate marketer, building an email list is the most important aspect of your business. As a blogger, online business owner, or side hustler, building your email list is crucial.
