  1. Articles like “The Top 5 Utilities for macOS” are really popular. Opinionated articles tend to perform well too. “The Rotten Side of Tim Cook’s Apple” is such an example. This article was published by The Startup, not on the Apple-centric Mac’O Clock. It still receives regular views and reads, months after initial publication.
  2. Allow some content to be published outside Medium paywall to increase your chances of being noticed (cross-post a link on Twitter for example). It’s a difficult balance to achieve, though. If your article is interesting, people will get it for free, you’ll leave money on the table. Considering doing this as giving samples of your quality work.
  3. Publish on your term. Some publications require that you submit an article in draft mode (not yet published). Depending on the publication owner schedule, it may require up to a few days before your article get published. Sometimes, timing is everything. Consider publishing on your own, if that’s the case.
  4. Reviews of hot tech gadgets are also popular, particularly from Apple. As a fan of Apple, since 1981, It’s easy for me to write about Apple.
