I would really, really like if the post statistics were improved! Right now, it only shows limited information on the most recent posts, but absolutely nothing on older posts. I make several posts a week so posts don’t stay long in the ‘most recent’ list, and I still want to be able to keep track of how many views I get on each of those posts once they’ve been pushed off that list. Please improve this! What we have right now is a good start, but we need more information and more long-term information, not just statistics on our most recent posts.
Hey @Laura_Hepworth - we just added a new integration called Creator Metrics that gives creators a deeper understanding of how your community growing.This integration was actually created and built by Patreon creators! As far as I know, this integration does not give detailed post-specific stats but it’s a step in the right direction.
Check it out here: Creator Metrics | Patreon
That’s correct, at the moment it’s not showing any information about posts.
I was thinking about adding something about them (like the frequency of posting, etc); and I’d be very happy to add views stats as well… if you could only provide that information (among many others, especially about pledges) from the API…
That’s all well and good, but I just checked their site and, from what I can tell (and please correct me if I’m wrong on this), it’s an integration that we have to pay for in order to use. I don’t think getting such a basic statistic as post views should be something we have to pay for. I can see that for other metrics, but not something as simple as post views.
Yeah, it really seems like Patreon should be providing this function as part of the service:
“Access to various reports to understand how your community is growing. These reports are automatically updated on a daily basis to allow you to act quickly and tweak your communication to your audience. You will also have the ability to enable and customize automatic emails to send to your patrons on specific occasions. You could for example automatically send an anniversary email to thank them when they’ve been supporting you for 1 year. Or automatically reach out when their payment fails or when they cancel. We totally understand that your main focus is to create new content for your patrons, and this is why you should leave the metrics to us: we will provide you just the data and tools that you need to help you grow your community.”
I REALLY REALLY REALLY want this for all my posts! I share them in groups and will get engagement on old posts. This could REALLY help me!!! <3
Google Analytics is free, and Patreon works with it.
I do use that too, it’s just not as user friendly for some statistics. Thanks though .
