Are you losing readers faster than you earn new ones?


I just published this story.

If you’re a Medium writer (or you write on ANY platform) this story is for you. Earning a new reader is no trivial event. Keeping a new reader is even harder. Yet, most content creators have no method for reader-retention. A new reader comes, reads one story, and never sees your content again.

If you follow the typical path you’ve got to reset to zero with each piece of content you write. You don’t have a system in place to grow your creative practice. There’s a simple way to keep more readers and grow your readership methodically, over time. Click that link and I’ll show you how.

In your service,
