How Do You Get Noticed on Medium?
Chris Jones

In my experience, responses are a great way to connect and get followers. It’s all about making insightful or witty comments, but not necessarily long responses.

I made one comment on a story by Jon Westenberg, who has a ton of followers, and I got a hundred or so recommends in a few days.

I think that people tend to seek out stories more, and those are what the Medium editors and staff look for. I’ve had a few stories recommended by the staff, but never responses. I hope that helps.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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