Yes, our monetization model will be exactly like substack and not medium. But our platform will have discovery and recommendations like medium.
Hey you raise some really good and valid points. The way we are approaching this is our user is the person who writes / published content.
We are going to focus on providing the tools for those users to build an audience and monetize it directly instead of having to go through an intermediary like medium does.
I was a medium writer making $10-15 a month so I feel the pain of writers and my goal is to build a better platform for them. Because if you look at mediums home page, they treat the reader as their user and not the writer. I intend to flip that in a number of ways.
I'd love to chat with you more about it if you're interested :)
Thanks for the insights, I think I'll stick to our MVP vision because the main purpose of the landing page is to attract beta users.
That's extremely helpful. I think I will focus on text content because we want to attract beta users right now and it is always good practice to under-promise and over deliver. Thanks for your insights.
