Best practices for calls to action in distributed posts

To provide the highest quality reading experience, stories published in the Partner Program should follow our quality standards, which include notes on soliciting personal information or monetary donation:

Do not ask for claps or include other calls to action, including gifs of clapping, requests for donations, or other links or embeds for the purpose of capturing user information or soliciting money.

We respect the desire for creators to promote their work on other platforms to interested readers, and ask that you do so using plain, minimal text links. You're still welcome to include the following in your stories:

  • A short bio (~2-3 lines)
  • Links to your other Medium stories
  • Link to other social media profiles
  • Link to your website, book or other project
