I have been creating content on Vocal since April 2020; however, I did not properly start until the end of November last year. Since then, I have dedicated myself to posting content on the platform multiple times a week and have loved the experience so far. I have explored various blogging platforms, but none have compared to Vocal. With its Challenge feature, unique communities, and multiple features to support the reader and their creators' experience, I have decided to dedicate myself to Vocal and its future. I have even decided to invest in the company's stock shares to support its growth. As both a creator and investor in the platform, it is excellent to see Vocal taking steps to improve their user experience, and today's updated website is a sign of just that.
Imagine This: You woke up hearing a song whose lines are very much familiar to you. You began scrolling Facebook and encountered the same song being shared. It looks like the song has become viral for a few days already.
Tips are the best part of being a creator on Vocal. It can take a while for your story to earn profit through reads, so it's a luxury to receive money from your audience semi-instantly. And why else are tips so great? Because they're a sign of appreciation for your hard work! Someone liked your story enough to give you cash for your words, and that means a lot. Even if it's only a dollar, a Vocal tip is a little sign someone enjoyed your content.
It's a new year, it's the same me. 2020 tested me in so many ways; from my patience and persistence, to productivity beliefs. With all the time I was left to spend with myself, I was able to take a real introspective look at my life and habits. Where I went wrong, and what things I could start implementing to fix it.
In the last few weeks or so, my views on Vocal have increased significantly. The biggest reason for this is that I have learned a lot in that time and it has made me a better content creator. But learning does come with a price and for me, that price was failing... quite a few times. But just because I had to fail to become better doesn't mean that you have to. So here are some things I've learned from my least viewed stories so that you can learn without having to experience it firsthand.
I've been on Vocal for about a year and a half. Throughout several weeks of typing up articles, liking stories, tipping creators and getting to know Vocal writers on social media, I've learned so much about the platform. It's taught me how to be a better writer, how to grow an audience, and how to make money creating digital content. This year, it literally saved my life during a soul-sucking pandemic.
I have been writing articles and poetry on Vocal for over two years now and I started thinking just exactly how it has changed my life for the better. There are three main ways that writing for Vocal has changed my life that I want to share here. I believe that if you start writing for Vocal that your life will also be positively impacted.
I was 8 when I made some real money off of balls. So much so, my business was shut down by ‘the man’ quickly and ruthlessly. This is my story.
I know I am not the only person struggling after spending the last nine months avoiding social gatherings, staying away from friends and family, and hunkering down at home. I’m not a social butterfly, but I love the few friends I have, and I have missed them dearly over the past few months.
As Senior Content Manager and de facto head of Content Moderation at Vocal, I read a lot of stories. I read a lot, because I have to. We are a platform that fights back against hate speech and misinformation by employing a powerful army of human moderators. Every story is read by me or someone on my team before it goes live, to ensure that it does not contain:
We Interviewed Jonathan Sim who has published a very popular article on Vocal Media; How I Started Averaging Over $2000 a Month Writing on Vocal, in which he shared his experience writing on Vocal Media and making continuously $2000 a month writing on Vocal Media. This is the snippet of the Interview we have conducted with Jonathan Sim about his writing career on Vocal Media.
Reaching ten views is an impressive feat on Vocal, so even breaking that first 100 can seem like an impossible task. With the platform becoming more and more saturated everyday, it's only getting harder to stand out amongst the rest.
