I started my Patreon page back in September of 2018 and have had pretty good success with it. However, as I hit my 5th month, I found myself on the dreaded plateau. No growth for the last two months. I’ve gotten a few new patrons but they have been offset by existing patrons leaving. Thankfully, one of the focuses from the patreon team over the last month has been this issue and I feel like I am on the cusp of understanding what I need to do in order to inflect and increase my patron count.
To that end, I am taking the following steps:
- Redesigning my pledge tiers - Most of the advice points to this as the driver for pledge growth so I am going to give it a go.
- Running a special event - I’m giving away a physical product for the first time in ever, but only for a limited time.
- Social Media Push - I’m going to try to set up a solid posting schedule with planned posts to drive traffic to my Patreon.
This is where I’d love some feedback and advice. Do you have any go-to tricks for increasing the number of eyes that see your Patreon? Are there services you could recommend that will help with getting my name out there, or maybe increasing the reach of my social media posts?
Is there a reciprocal sharing group for Patreon creators? If not, can we start one?
