Hello! We’re kicking off another set of experiments to help creators take more action and gather insights when logged in. One of the things we know from talking to thousands of creators is that understanding what steps to take next isn’t always easy or clear - especially when it comes to your patrons and their benefits. We also know that patrons stick around for longer when they’re getting regular posts, messages and comments from you.
For this initial version we’ll provide 50% of creators with a series of info cards, updated on a weekly basis, giving you handy updates and useful next steps on things like:
- How many new patrons you have; giving you the option to send them a personalized welcome message and provide them with a great first experience.
- New comments you’ve received; so you know exactly who to respond to, to make them feel valued.
- Best practices on things like Special Offers, business insights like why email lists are so important, and inspirational moments like how to balance creative independence and self-care.
We’ll run this test for one week beginning today. If the test is successful and patrons are sticking around, we’ll continue to add more insights and updates; eventually turning this into a hub of information and opportunities and roll it out to all creators.
As this is an experiment, not all of you will see this change, but as we gather data on it’s effectiveness, we’ll keep everyone in the loop. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
