We tried, followed the guides, and have the results. You won’t get 100 followers in 24 hours like a lot of articles claims, but the results may still impress you.
To prepare your account for a real grow the maneuver you first have to design it right. Stick to a few primary theme colors, and pick a layout that fits your style / brand. Follow 25–30 accounts in your niche by using the discover feature for hashtags.
Create and share content
The medium algorithm prioritizes accounts that post frequently, and are driving more reads to their platform. A good rule of thumb is to try and post a good piece of content every 2–3 days max. Once you have created an article, share it across your social media accounts to get initial views, if possible. If not, comment on other medium posts that are writing about the same thing you are. This will get followers and reads organically.
What is realistic growth
Styvio.com is at 140 followers and it took a little less than a week, probably 5 days. That’s not 100 followers in 24 hours but I think its really good growth regardless.
