Vocal Media is an alternative platform to Medium. The main difference being, you get paid on reads, regardless of whether readers are members or not. Sounds too good to be true, right.
There is one downside, their search authority isn’t as high as Medium. You need to advertise your articles across your social media to guarantee reads. Nothing you don’t do already.
The Positives Outweigh the Negatives.
The positives of this platform, greatly outweigh the negative. For a start, if you write high optimised SEO articles and get the views you can make money quickly.
The second is that Vocal reward you for content. Last month they gifted me $5 for adding my fifth article to their site. They also offer other monetary rewards throughout your time with them.
Readers can also tip you if they like your article. You can add a simple call to action at the bottom reminding readers of this.
The last hidden gem on Vocal Media is primarily the reason I joined them. Each month there are many challenges they set. If you submit an article to this challenge and win you can with upwards from $1000 to $20000. You also earn money on the articles in the same way, through tips and reads.
Repurpose Your Content
Vocal Media’s rules, do not restrict you from using content you have published elsewhere. It is a simple process of copy and pasting an older article to start earning money. What could be better than giving those dead articles on Medium a second chance?
Vocal Media Plus
There are two levels of subscription for Vocal Media. The first is completely free, the other is called their plus service. With this option to get access to more challenges and other advantages such as a lower threshold for removing your income from your wallet.
If you are interested in expanding your reach this is the platform. As an extra incentive, I have been gifted a code to get you 50% of the fees for a year. Quote code BMS33 on checkout. The offer is valid for the next ten days.
I would urge any writer to look at this platform I have long considered it to be a rival to Medium and believe it will grow in strength over the next year.
