If you’re able to pull in enough traffic to generate money from advertisers, your own domain is certainly more profitable. The problem is, most people never reach that point. Clearly, to do so is possible though. I just think building an audience is much easier here on Medium.
As far as a ceiling goes, the potential is essentially limitless but it’s all about how well your posts perform. As I believe I mentioned in this article, the highest paid writer on Medium made $14,000 last month while the average payout was like $70.
So to say payments vary would be the understatement of the year. Above all else,just keep writing — regardless of where you do it at. Thanks for reading.
