Medium just doesn’t work

  • 47% of authors or publications who wrote at least one story for members earned money. 9.8% of active authors earned over $100.
  • $16,007.02 was the most earned by an author, and $2,260.42 was the most earned by a publication.
  • $2,059.72 was the most earned for a single story.

The problem

The main problem is how the Medium partner program works. The idea is that they get $5/month from all the users that subscribe to Medium and then they share part of the earned money with all the authors that have got claps from subscribed users. Unfortunately, this can’t work.

The solution

No, I’m not so high to think to have the solution because I’m more clever than others, I just think that the solution has been found by Google at least 10 years ago: ads.
