Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Here’s the dream.

You write 4 or 5 articles per month and Medium pays you $500 or $1000 for your effort.

But here’s the reality.

It’s not that simple. In fact, there’s a lot you need to do and to learn before you can make any decent money on Medium. So here’s what I want to do for you. I am going to show you how much money I made this past month (November 2023) and then explain how I made it.

What that means is that I will show you how many articles I wrote this month, how much time and effort it took to write them and also what advice you should and should not follow to earn money.

If you’re ready — let’s take a look at the realities of earning money on Medium.

How Much Money Did I Earn on Medium this Month?

The most frequently asked question on Medium is this one, in fact there are several hundred YouTube channels dedicated to how-to make money on Medium. And all of them garner tens of thousands of views.

So here are my numbers for the month of November 2023:

Not impressive, right?

As you can see, I earned a whopping $12.60 for the month of November 2023. But I don’t want you to focus on the dollar amount, instead I want you to take a look at the % increase from the previous months.

That’s a 4000% increase!

Which should lead you right into the next question:

How did I go from earning 29 cents in October 2023 to $12.60 in November 2023?

What’s the Secret Formula?

I cracked the code.

I know what you’re saying — how can I say I cracked the code, when I only earned $12.60. It’s not like you can live off $12.60…
