I joined Medium last week. I decided to purchase your e-book and started listening to the audio version on my way to work. This morning I finished my first article incorporating your advice. I posted the article about 6:30am and by 1pm I had an email from Medium that it was selected to be recommended to readers interested in Productivity across their homepage, app, topic page, and emails.

"The course pays for itself in two articles only! There are so many great actionable items that push me to action. I have become a better writer because of the tips Dave mentions. And I love how he's sharing true numbers when it comes to getting paid."

"I've taken several other courses, coaching, and webinars but this was definitely the most helpful. Dave does a great job showing you what's worked on Medium and the step-by-step process to help you replicate success. Plus, his sections about pitching editors, landing big publications and creating epic headlines are worth the money alone. This guide will show you everything you need to gain a massive following and start making money with Medium."

Will I become a Top Writer on Medium if I take this course?Short answer: Yes, probably. If you learn the skills, complete the writing exercises, and publish more than 12 times in one tag within 30 days, but still don't earn the Top Writer badge, let me know and I'll refund 100 percent of your money.

Can't I learn all of this for free on Medium already? Why do I need this course?It's true there's a lot you can learn about Medium online, but you'll get a lot of the same, repetitive general advice from solo writers with no real data or little experience. You'll waste time weeding through everybody's content trying to find data-backed, useful, and accurate strategies and tips.This course is the only source of lessons based not only on the top Medium stories of all time, written by the most successful Medium writers, but also the experience of a six-year Medium expert who grew a publication from 0 to 121,000+ followers. You'll learn the strategies used by many top Medium writers, all in one place.

How is this course different from other Medium courses?Medium is a new(ish) platform. There aren't many Medium courses to choose from. But there are a handful. This one is different in four ways:
- Other Medium courses are created by teachers with only a year or two of experience on the platform. This Medium course's instructor is the only instructor with over six years of experience writing and growing a total audience of 140k+ followers on Medium.
- The 38 Expert Medium Writing Tips course is based on a data analysis of the Top Medium Stories of all time and their writers, not just one person's experience (although you get that, too).
- The course is offered at a price point that is affordable and reasonable for writers.
- Presented in a mobile-optimized ebook and audiobook, the course avoids the inefficiency and verbosity of video lectures. Instead, you'll be able to search for answers, refer to key lessons, and navigate quickly within the 189 page resource—all from your mobile device.
