[Build In Public] Medium Profile

[Build In Public] Medium Profile

I’ve seen that Medium.com is one of the recommended places for promoting written content. But I’m not really sure if this works so I thought I would give it a crack for a year or so and see what happens.

One big question I have is how does the platform work? As in, what is the user behavior. Are people mainly reading this on their phones and skimming through, or are they deep readers very interested in the content.

The other question I have is, what kind of people are on there and what are they into?
