How to Grow Your Audience on Medium
elizabeth tobey

Thanks for this – an interesting read and a break from the monotony of How to be a better person articles.

My last Medium piece was actually my most read article (nearly 400 reads, which is pretty high for me) but only 2 recommends. I know that folks liked the piece due to the engagement I got on Facebook about the article, but I had neglected to add a CTA for recommends (feels a little like ‘marketing’ – which ruins the personal tone of the writing for me).

Any non-CTA suggestions for driving engagement and recommends?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
