We strongly believe that a huge majority of Medium authors are significantly lacking in marketing their work to the world. Many are publishing great fiction, great articles on business, technology, life hacks, and personal experiences, and these contents are all within the ecosystem of Medium. This is great, but imagine if outside people were exposed to the authors and had a taste of their work, so many more will find, join our authors.
So our mission is to amplify the author’s reach by reaching out on multiple platforms — podcasts, youtube and external websites. Our most recent effort is the new YouTube channel.
We only have a single machine-read interview published on our YouTube channel so far. But we are working on 3–5 videos to launch in 2–3 weeks.
Why would this benefit the authors?
Imagine someone was researching a new fiction author for their publication, magazine, ghostwriting, whatever, and landed on Ann K Frailey’s YouTube video. This recipe for getting found is straightforward — BE EVERYWHERE! Allow Google to find you everywhere in a meaningful way is the way to go about Internet existence. We are helping authors do that one author at a time. :)
Why machine-read interviews?
We are working on real video interviews with authors but the logistics are extremely difficult. We have found authors who do not even have reasonable photos of themselves and let alone video clips. However, we are working through the issues and figuring out how to solve them.
