Wow thanks for sharing these amazing strategies for Medium writers:
First, I started following up to 125 people(Medium’s limit) each day. Somewhere between 5 and 15 people follow me back each day. Some of them read through my posts and clap on the ones they liked.
Secondly, each time I publish an article, I head out to Quora and answer questions directly connected to my post. I paste a link to my article inside the Quora answer.
Thirdly, go to Manystories and share your articles. Sometimes people would pick up on what you shared and decide to follow you on Medium.
