How to add a form to Medium
Medium is one of the best ways to share your ideas online with a built in audience of people searching for great content. Yours!
The drawback of all the eyeballs on Medium content is they don't make email collection for your own audience easy at all. Most providers are stuck with simply linking out to their form page with a standard link.
ConvertKit still links out to the form or landing page, the difference is what we can achieve on the Medium end that looks way better than a standard link!
Now, that looks better than a jumbled link, right? Here's the best way to make it happen.
- Create your form in ConvertKit
- Customize the form
- Click the view button to grab the form's url
Adding to Medium
Here's the trick. Instead of pasting the link to the page as normal, click on the Medium code embed feature and paste there.

You may want to change the text on your form "widget" to keep it simple and clear. Honestly it seems to react differently each time I try to add one! You may have to change the title of the form in ConvertKit to help with this too.
As I mentioned above, Medium does not make this easy on any provider, but this is a great next level way to embed a portion of the form instead of sharing a general link.
