… how to use Medium in the best possible way to improve your social account — starting with the Publication tool. We have recently learnt a new skill that the wonderful platform of Medium has to offer. So what exactly is it’s purpose?

  • What do you want to gain from this publication?
  • What do you want your readers to get from reading it?
  • Name 1 thing that makes your publication different to any other…

This useful tools may not give you the answers to life, but it’s a great place to start. Keep your eyes pealed over the next few months whilst we begin brainstorming for our own.
