Are you currently creating teaser text for your posts? Why or why not?
Yes, but I’m not sure people engage with the teaser text, I’m largely an illustrator, so images would be a better way to do previews for my campaign.
Would you want to provide fans with teasers of locked content for all post types or specific ones?
I would want to be able to choose which posts preview with images. I’m a adult content creator and I need to be very specific with the things I show people publicly. I’d like to be able to choose general audience edited versions of images to show the public. That way my account meets patreon policies, but I can still tease image posts.
How much content would you want fans to be able to preview for text posts?
A single image should be sufficient for a preview for image posts. There might be some text that signifies there are more images in an image gallery like “See this and 14 more images by subscribing to the $x tier” - but I think image gallery previews aren’t necessary for my campaign and would prefer just one image in the preview (it looks nicer too).
I think poll posts should also allow previewing in their entirety (but not allow voting) with an opt-in option, polls are a great way to be interactive and if people could see the stuff they could be voting on, they would probably be more likely to subscribe and vote.
My other campaign also drives up subscribers and poll participation by screenshotting the results and posting it to non-subscribers and lower tier subscribers to encourage people to participate.
What are your thoughts on having a dark overlay on image posts?
I think it should be optional on single image posts, I would definitely prefer to use a non-darkened overlay preview image that I created specifically for the preview.
In short: As an illustrator that works in adult content I would love to have the option to show a single selected image preview. This image would have to meet public post guidelines, so I would need a way to choose it or add a unique image as the preview, but it would be far more useful than the current blur.
I’d also like polls to (optionally) display publicly so the public can see poll options and they might be enticed to subscribe so that they can vote on the topic.
