在Medium寫文章賺了多少錢?

我2018年底開始在Medium寫文章,至今一年寫了176篇,目前寫的主題是繞著我開發程式與學習的筆記,同時也參加Medium Partner Program。

目前一個月是2~5美元多,我出文章很慢,都是累積到一個程度才寫一篇的,每一篇文章花的時間也不一定,有的半小時就能寫好,有的文章會花上一兩週寫,特別是英文的就花特別多時間了!

可是發現我的收入比其他人差很多,查看其他人平均一個月可以有200美金最差也40多美金,相對下我這樣的表現太差了!今年2020年將修正此問題要提高收入,開始分析目前狀況與了解Medium遊戲規則。

寫到這篇粉絲數是180,最高點閱數13K 「How To: Create Your Own Private Ethereum Blockchain」但是收入是0元。所以收入的高低和流量沒有絕對關係。

Medium 寫文章幾項重點規則

幾項重點規則

  1. 不能在文章中要求大家幫你拍手
  2. 別打廣告、業配商品

透過文章賺取收入的公式

這在 Medium 官方文件上是相對抽象的,目前已的情報如下:

  1. 該篇文章的拍手數(claps)
  2. 付費讀者的閱覽數(read)
  3. 讀者閱讀的時間(read ratio)

想要提高收入,付費會員的拍手數才是最重要的數據,選對題目和高閱讀率也是一個收入計算核心,不過在計算收入中有特別提出medium支持寫獨特主題並與忠實讀者保持聯繫的作者。

By calculating a share of member reading time, we support authors who write about unique topics and connect with loyal readers. For example, if last month a member spent 10% of their monthly reading time on your story, you will receive 10% of their share (a portion of their subscription fee).

Imagine an author writes about fly fishing. She finds an audience of fly fishing enthusiasts who subscribe to Medium primarily to read her stories, meaning she receives a strong share of reading time from each of her readers. In contrast, an author who writes about a wide variety of topics might receive smaller shares from a broader audience of readers, who also read a variety of other authors. While the generalist will often earn a lot through the first total reading time part, the fly fisher is well equipped to earn through this share part — even with a smaller audience.

也因為這樣我寫文相對不會去注意流量,會比較專心寫自己想要寫的東西,這點還蠻愉快的,畢竟在Medium寫作不是為了錢或是流量反而是我的一個自省與思考的地方。

在這寫作不只是賺錢更是一種自省,寫作過程不只是思考也是整理

就先報告到這,明年2021年再來看看我的成績吧。

如果你覺得這篇不錯的話,請幫我按1–10個拍手。
如果這篇對你有點幫助的話,請幫我按11–20個拍手。
如果你想看更多分享文,請幫我按21個以上的拍手喔!

我知道你很想按五十下吧,那就一直按著囉! ^^
