Make Your First $100 on Medium

An exciting offer + some fascinating deals inside.

Hey you!

Welcome to Be Your Best Friend with Anangsha - the Sunday newsletter that’s always trying to be its best self. Today, I’ve some exciting news to share.

Did you know, that as of October 2020, only 5% of active writers make more than $100 every month on Medium? Most of the high-earners are people who started in early 2017 or 2018 or have tens of thousands of followers.

I started writing seriously on Medium in May 2020. I made $100 in my first month and kept studying the platform and writing my stories. In October 2020, I made $1400+. This was a combination of Partner Program earnings and commissioned pieces on Medium-owned publications.

I also got 2.8k+ followers and Top Writer tag in 10+ topics. As a non-native English speaker with no prior experience, this is a HUGE deal.
