Consistency is key. The best way to increase your presence on Medium is to write consistently, at least three to five times a week. I try to publish an article per day. It increases both my presence and capability as a writer.
I've been witnessing a sharp increase in views/ reads/engagement ever since I started publishing one article a day, save when I'm really tired or sick. Even on sick and tired days I still read other people's work and leave claps and comments and highlights.
