Please note that this is not like an advertising fee for your company but it helps to grow a strong brand name among our readers. We are interested in and strongly encourage social media sharing of your own content. Thus, we’ll ask you to share your article on Reddit. We’ll tell you the specific subreddits where you’ll need to share your written piece. We’ll expect you to answer comments both on the subreddit threads and the Soshace’s blog.

We strive to present high-quality content that supports and encourages writers of all types. Publishing with us ensures a global audience will read your work. The main benefit of following tags is that it can help personalize your Medium experience. For example, if you’re into baseball, you could follow the “baseball” tag.


We read each email and regularly answer inside one business day.

So, if you’re hoping to go viral on Medium, finding publications that are a good fit for your article is critical. I was told that shorter headlines on Medium do better and also ones that are kind-of clickbaity. I felt like the one I settled on was short, described what my story was about, and definitely got people curious as to what my article was about.

Medium is partnered with Unsplash to easily add pictures with proper citations to every submission. While this integration makes adding images easy, please do not use the same overused writing-centric images. Be creative with your searches and find pictures that align with your content. Each CTA must be discreet and in the reader’s best interest. Additionally, keep social media follow requests to a minimum. This ensures stories gain the most exposure possible.
