How I grew Vue Mastery’s Medium traffic by over 479,000

A technical content marketing case study — How 8 educational, SEO-focused articles drove almost half a million new views to Vue Mastery’s Medium

Derick Sozo Ruiz


Gregg Pollack, the founder of Vue Mastery, and I worked together to grow his company with engaging, educational blog posts on Medium.

Vue Mastery’s primary target audience is new Vue.js developers. With SEO keyword research, it was discovered developers were already searching for how to accomplish specific Vue.js tasks. We focused on educational content to attract developers interested in completing those specific tasks.
