I’ve been breaking my head over this question since day one August Birch.
Medium doesn’t like when visitors jump from their page to somewhere else. I choose not to put a call to action for now. My articles are getting curated and gaining traction. But having a good email list is priceless, especially if you’re an indie author or a marketeer. So, I’m still confused.
One thing could get you back in curators’ grace. Pitching to Medium owned publications or submitting work to established private publications like Personal Growth, Better Marketing, or Startup might help.
