One of the big pain points for Patreon is onboarding new patrons from other platforms. My whole strategy for attracting fans involves my multi-pronged social media posts all funneling back to a single brand website where all my content lives. The only exception to this is Patreon. I need for fork my traffic over to Patreon on a regular basis to get the majority of my new patrons. Beyond that, my patrons need to visit both my brand site and my Patreon page to see the whole offering. Ultimately, it’s less than ideal for both of us.
If I could allow Patreon users access to content inline on my Squarespace site (www.angelarium.net), I feel like the experience for both me and my fans would improve dramatically. They would have a one stop shop for the entire project and it would serve to advertise the benefits for would-be patrons.
I think Squarespace would be a great starting point if there is any effort to create a Patreon API. Other Squarespace service partners like Google mail and Shipstation have picked up my business as a result of Squarespace integration, so beyond any usability improvements, I could see it as a big win for Patreon overall.
I figure it’s a long shot, but hey, this is my dream feature!
