Time Stamped Show Notes:

  • 00:29 – Today’s topic: Should you be using Medium or not?
    • 00:44 – Neil doesn’t see the value right now, especially if you already have your own blog that gets traffic
    • 01:03 – You can use Medium to promote your blog…maybe
  • 01:20 – Why build equity on somebody else’s platform?
  • 01:45 – Why would you compound your investment on another platform
    • 02:00 – Where’s the conversion tracking? Where are the tracking pixels?
    • 02:20 – Now, if your written content doesn’t have anything to do with what your blog normally covers, go ahead and put it on Medium
  • 03:15 – Medium is really a new, higher-quality version of Tumblr
  • 03:38 – Medium lacks versatility
  • 04:00 – You can test Medium for link building
  • 04:15 – If your blog blows up, you have no control with Medium
  • 04:28 – The plus side of Medium is this—they have an audience so your copy will be read
  • 05:09 – if your goal is to solely grow exposure…Medium can work
    • 05:50 – Are you focused on brand building or monetizing?

3 Key Points:

  1. Ask yourself are you interested in brand-building or monetizing?
  2. With Medium, you have zero control.
  3. When you do most on Medium, at least you know your content will be read.
