I have been in your shoes. I know that you are confused. You only want to write and share your thoughts and feelings with the world, and why not make some pennies from time to time. But then you find yourself facing many tall walls. SEO, MPP, advertising, publications, stats, KO-FI

P.S. Keep reading until the end. I have a bonus for you.

The Medium community will help you to understand all these terms. So don’t worry! In a short period, you will be an advanced Medium writer.

As part of the community, I will help you join the MPP (Medium Partner Program). I helped a lot of people. My challenge inspired a whole wave of new writers on the platform. And now, it is the time to get you on the boat. Relax, you are in safe hands.

10 days ago, I challenged myself to reach 100 followers in 24 hours. I had about 20 followers. I announced my challenge on Medium and started the hard work. After 24 hours, I was there. In this article, I will show you how I did it.

Step by step to get 100 followers in 24 hours

1. Find articles

Go to the Medium search bar and type 100 followers. Or find the 100 followers topic listed at the bottom of this article.

You will find many great articles. The most trending ones are:

Choose 10 to 20 articles and save them into your reading list.

2. Write a response

Before responding to these articles, open your favorite writing software (MS Word in my case) and write a small paragraph of 3 to 4 lines.

First, thank the writer and appreciate her article. Those writers are trying to help you. Be grateful and acknowledge their efforts.

Second, represent yourself. Who you are, and when did you start writing on the platform. That will build trust between you and the reader of your response.

Third, list topics that you will write about. I believe that we can write about different topics. Yet, select only your top 3 or 5 topics.

Fourth, show the community that you bestow the same kindness and courtesy you’re requesting on others.

Example: Thank you @bouamri for this great article. I’ve only been here for a few weeks. I am a doctor, and I talk about science, health, and medicaments. I follow back everyone who follows me.

3. Respond, reply, and clap.

Once your text is ready, go back to the saved articles. Read each article. Clap and leave a response. To take this step further, reply to the responses of people who are looking for followers.

4. Follow back

Keep the community strong by following back the writers who followed you.

5. Never unfollow

This is not Instagram! Once a writer is following, she will be faithful and keep following you until the end. Never play the follow/unfollow game here. This is a writers community, and writers are not tricksters.


To show you my support, leave a comment on this post, and I will follow you. Together we can build a strong community of writers. Let’s support each other. And as JL Matthews said, “It’s a hand-up, not a handout.”
