That’s why I share friends links heavily on social media, Meg. I count on some people liking whatever I’m sharing enough to browse around a little and read OTHER stories. Pretty soon, they’ll get a prompt asking them to join and pay their 5 dollars. Not everybody will, that’s for sure, but many will. I know of several people on Facebook who are now Medium members because they started reading my stories. I didn’t even have to PITCH. That’s the beauty of it. Medium does all that for us.
