For what seems like the longest time I was unable to make anything I wrote “for members only” after having joined the Medium partner program. After having reached out to Medium for support several times, they finally resolved my issue, whatever it was and I am now able to make my articles for members only. I actually have seen an increase in views and interaction with what I have written since doing so, although I have yet to see any monetary kickback. If it just pays for my membership, it will be a positive.
