Medium is a great way to reach your audience with meaningful content. When a post starts reaching tons of people, it is hard to keep track of every clapper.
Stop copy-pasting by hand
No matter how many clappers a post may have, retrieve in a few seconds a CSV with the Medium profile URL, full name & job of every clapper. Once you have it be creative and enrich your database. You can for example find everyone's LinkedIn profiles thanks to our "Linkedin Profil URL Finder" 🔍
What will you need? ⚙️
"uid": 1st Medium session cookie required

"spreadsheetUrl": List of all the medium post you want to scrape
