$19,000 For a Single Medium Story In 2022

Just imagine…


Medium is a magical place like few others on the internet. It still is in 2022.

There’s a chance that you write a piece of content, a string of a few hundred words, and in time it turns into a load of money.


$19,000 for a 6-min read

This has happened to one lucky Medium writer very recently.

In fact, the single story that earned him more than $19,000 to date — yes, that is indeed a 19 with three zeros — isn’t even half a year old. It dates back to October 2021. This is the story:

Here is what you can learn from it.medium.com


What sets in apart

As you can tell, the title is a large part what makes it popular. It’s interesting, it makes you want to know more, doesn’t it?

I would also point to the subtitle as a factor for its success. It engages by involving “you”.

Most importantly, it’s an extremely well-written post about a true story surrounding the richest man on planet earth.


The author

The lucky author is S M Mamunur Rahman. He’s been a Medium member since August 2021.

That means his viral post was written 2 months after he joined the platform.

This is inspirational for you, me, us all. On Medium, you can succeed any day. And yes, still in 2022, you can go viral.


The bottom line

Medium can feel daunting in the beginning. Views are hard to come by in the first days, weeks, or even months. I get it. I’ve been there before.

Every successful writer has been there. They didn’t give up. They kept writing. In the case of S M Mamunur Rahman, it only took 2 months to hit the jackpot. A jackpot that earned him more than $19,000 in 5 months.

For others, it will take longer. But it can happen to you, me, us.

I’ve had my first truly viral story in January/February. One year after I started on Medium. It didn’t earn me $19,000. But I made $1800 so far and that amount is still growing.

It can happen. Be patient and write.
