Welcome back to Open Studio number 8. You might remember me from such hits as templates for new creators. I’m returning to share some work on our tier editor !
We know that editing your tiers is currently a tedious process: click into a tier, remove a benefit, save, exit, click into another tier, add a different benefit, save, exit, repeat until your mouse clicking finger hurts.
We’re exploring an easier way to edit tiers. In this concept, you’d be able to drag and drop benefits , track them more easily, and duplicate them with one click.
Drag and drop
In our benefit card concept, benefits appear like cards that you can easily rearrange in a tier and even move between tiers!
We hear you: adding, removing, and deleting benefits is confusing. Tracking, what’s that? Why do I have to rewrite all the work I just did into the tier description? We’re hoping this new interface makes all that more clear.
One click benefit copying
Most creators want to offer benefits in more than one tier but it means duplicating effort, especially if you want tracking! We’re looking at copying as a possible solution to this…less than fun process.
Feedback we’re looking for
How often do you edit your tiers?
What were some misconceptions you had about tiers when you started your Patreon?
How would these changes impact you?
Note: 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.
