Build Your Audience with Medium


Medium is an ideas exchange, where thinkers, creators, and storytellers come to find their audience, move ideas, and move people. It allows your audience to respond, react, and build on your ideas. Increasingly, it’s a platform for influential people and organizations to publish, converse, and engage.

It’s the place where:

Patrisse Marie Cullors-Brignac, cofounder of Black Lives Matter, wrote about divergent strategies and conflict in the movement for Black lives;

United We Dream publishes campaign tips for their network;

Marisa Franco, B Loewe and Tania Unzueta, cofounders of #Not1More, laid out a new framework for thinking about how we make social change; and

Farhad Ebrahimi, founder of the Chorus Foundation, shared what he’s learned after a decade of climate funding.

Watch this webinar recording with Bridget Todd of Medium to learn the basics of the platform and how it can integrated into your organization’s communications strategy. She’ll share the advantages and disadvantages of using Medium, and examples of organizations using the platform successfully.
