Medium OS Prelaunch
What is Medium OS?
But I have something exciting to share.
I am doing a prelaunch for Medium OS.
This prelaunch is happening on my Payhip store only. You’re getting early access to Medium OS during this prelaunch, and you can get Medium OS on Payhip and Gumroad after the prelaunch.
The prelaunch is starting today, June 15th.
Sign up to the Medium OS email list to access the prelaunch. You will receive the links to Medium OS via this email list afterward. And a huge surprise will be waiting for you as well.

Why should you consider Medium OS?
First of all, it’s built on Notion and Notion is a great writing and organizational tool.
Case and point:
Medium removed the ability to write on the go inside the mobile app. With Notion, you can write on the go inside the app or a mobile browser.
Notion offers capabilities far beyond other writing apps, like managing your stories inside a database with tags, dates, links, and many more details. You can do it as simple or as comprehensive as you like. And you can expand on the databases at any time.
Medium OS in Notion acts as a backup for your Medium story catalog. You can use it to gain crucial insights into stats and performance, like visualizing the relation between curated stories and viral hits.
Medium OS also offers the possibility of organizing and connecting all your written content from other platforms than Medium. I used it for Substack, Vocal, NewsBreak, WordPress, and even other content formats like YouTube videos and social media posts.
How to use Medium OS
It's easy. Here are the steps:
Sign up for Notion (free) and download the apps for desktop and mobile devices
Download Medium OS
Duplicate the Medium OS template to your Notion workspace
Add a new story by navigating to the Content OS section. Hit the blue "New" button and add the details for your posts like title, tags, publication details, and the text body. That's it.
Add existing Medium stories by simply copying and pasting each one from your published folder on Medium.com into a new Content OS entry. Add all details to those as well. You're done.
Repeat the process for each other platform you'd like to manage with Medium OS, like blog posts, newsletter issues, social media posts, podcast scripts, or YouTube video details.
How I've been using Medium OS
In 1.5 years on Medium, I've gained over 10,000 followers, 600 Medium subscribers, 170 referrals, and generated a 4-figure monthly income.
Much of this success is built on my writing system in Notion that helps me publish daily (on weekdays), provides ideas for new posts, and reveals detailed insights into curation, tags, and viral topics.
I put the lessons I learned into Medium OS, giving you a comprehensive, yet easy-to-use foundation to manage your content.
The bottom line
Medium OS is the perfect companion for Medium writers. But any online writer & content creator can use and benefit from it.
Get early access to Medium OS during this prelaunch right now.
