If you are a freelance writer, Medium is a great place to showcase your writing.
When I first started publishing on Medium, I was just writing for fun. And even then, I found myself receiving lots of replies, comments, and emails inquiring about my services as a freelance writer or content marketer.
I now run a profitable content marketing business.
The best part?
I have never had to spend a single penny or a minute of my time looking for freelance writing jobs.
For many freelance writers, this is how they spend upwards of 50% of their time (I know this because I am constantly getting pitches from freelance writers looking for work, and I do occasionally hire them if they have a decent portfolio and style of writing).
But even with these writers, if they do not have content published on Medium that I can easily review, I am not likely to consider them at all.
