Fundraising tip – Have you checked out Medium?
I was back home in Denver last summer on a walk with one of my best friends. We were talking about my Altrui blog and he said “I think you should be writing on Medium”.
I had no idea I was missing out on what I believe to be one of the best platforms on social media for writing, exchanging of ideas, and learning.
It’s also perfect for those in nonprofit fundraising.
I became a member. I think it was $50.00 for a year.
Then I started the process of publishing articles there.
Medium has a partner program where you can make money off of your articles. For some it can be a lot, for me, it’s minimal for now.
I’m not there to make money. I’m there to share ideas, and to write about fundraising, nonprofits, and relationship building.
Whatever expectations I had in joining Medium and in writing on Medium have been exceeded beyond what I could have imagined. I have been able to get in front of communities that I was not in front of before, and I have been able to learn from so many writers on Medium.
More people know about Altrui and my work, and slowly I am seeing more people learn about me on Medium and then click over to my Altrui website.
The best thing I have gotten out of Medium is the wide-array of writers and article there. Every day I read about something that interests me, whether I knew it would or not when starting to read it.
For nonprofits and nonprofit fundraisers, Medium can bring you and your mission to a whole other world. It can introduce you to countless others, while allowing you to meet people and learn of organizations you had not previously known.
Here is an example of one of my articles on Medium: https://danieljhanley.medium.com/another-loss-for-the-nonprofit-fundraising-world-4de45c20bff1?sk=69b17f01bd8e742261b71d6ef62ffd39
