Hello, creators. For this week’s edition of Open Studio, I’m sharing concepts for first-time creators on Patreon. We know setting up a Patreon page is tough—How many tiers should you offer? What prices should you offer? What should your banner look like? Our current experience doesn’t provide the guided experience that first-time creators need.
Disclaimer: This work is still going through research and testing, so things are likely to evolve as we learn more, including from your feedback this week. You can add feedback here or reach out to me directly at email@example.com.
Take the guesswork out.
Currently, there isn’t much guidance about how to set up your membership on Patreon. We want to take the guesswork out of tiers and pricing for some of the most common membership plan types we see on Patreon with “templates”.
First, imagine seeing this right after signing up for Patreon for the first time . You can explore different membership templates by the kind of content you make.
Then, you can learn more about each template and select the one you want to start with.
Once you’ve chosen your template and added it to your creator page, you can then edit the tiers and customize them further.
These are very early concepts and they don’t represent what we’ll roll out in the future. Your feedback can help make changes to the sign-up experience that will empower first-time creators to launch better pages.
- I know most folks here are launched creators, so think back to when you were signing up for Patreon. What were some of your biggest challenges? Would these concepts have helped you?
- Do you have any questions or concerns?
