Vocal dot Media is a site run and owned by Jerrick Media. Jerrick Media is a public limited company. I first heard of Vocal on Quora and then I first check out the site. I joined Vocal Media over a year ago but it has been 8 months that I am consistent being publishing content on Vocal.
While searching for the possible answers to find that is Vocal Media a legit site? or are this there any success stories available where people who write on this platform make big money, I got into this Reddit thread about Vocal Media. This Reddit thread is everything wrong with the Internet. None of the commentators use Vocal Media and almost all of them are unhappy or pessimistic about writing on Vocal, they even called it a scam.
I am a writer on Vocal Media for the past year and not leaving the platform any time soon. This is the reason why I am writing this article to ensure that more people read about this platform and start writing on it instead of going to a thread that is making claims which aren’t true.
