Likelihood to Recommend

Medium

It really depends on the need. I don't see Medium as a place for all of your blog posts. It's not a dumping ground-- it's better suited for your best posts. If you're posting something to gain extra exposure about your company, brand or another subject it's an excellent resource because it's easily discoverable. Choose what's posted to Medium wisely.

Pros

Medium

  • User Experience - Their UX is top notch.
  • Feature set - Minimal, but not overwhelmingly simple. They've found an excellent balance.
  • Design.
  • Low barrier to entry - All you need is a twitter account to get started.

Cons

Medium

  • It can be harder to get your content seen as medium is a popular platform.
  • It is still early days for us to track back success (traffic, rank etc) from posting to medium regularly. I hear tracking success outside vanity metrics can be hard for others too.
  • I am yet to figure out how to create and add to magazines - these have the potential to be a good audience booster, but not too clear.

By comparison, most online editors are clunky. The Medium editor is amazingly powerful and still easy to use.

Medium is dirt easy to use. The hard part is figuring out if it is worth the effort to include it as part of our content-marketing strategy.

Alternatives Considered

Medium

There are a handful of other blogging platforms available. The biggest difference between Medium and others is how streamlined it is. It's straight to the point and is excellent at showing related content, be it your own or another users. There's no new design to navigate between posts, everything is where you expect it to be letting you focus on the post.

Return on Investment

Medium

  • Good way to raise awareness of our content with @mentioned influencers
  • Good way to link back to your original content
  • Aside from publishing your own content Medium is a great news site in its own right. If you're looking for relevant industry news or other content, check in daily to see what's going on with others in your industry.
