Each Tuesday the Patreon team shares tips in what we aptly call “Tuesday Tips” on the Official Patreon Discord server as a way to help spark conversation among creators and to give info, advice, and ideas as you all create art and community with your patrons/members.
This forum is particularly helpful because there are so many threads and direct conversations offering tips to one another, general and focused, and I’d like to incorporate more of our creator community into this Tuesday Tips initiative and bring this conversation of best practices over here, on Discourse.
I would like to invite you to submit a tip for a future Discord Tuesday Tip consideration, a piece of advice, practical or encouraging, simple or advanced, that you think your fellow creators would benefit from.
Maybe it’s something that feels like at trick up your sleeve, your go to strategy for your work that you haven’t seen many other people do. Or maybe it’s something that’s super simple and easy to tackle and can be a helpful reminder to use tools right in front of you. Or it can be the best piece of advice a fellow creator ever gave you, whatever you think other creators should know!
What’s a tip that you wish you knew earlier in your Patreon journey? What’s one thing you think every creator should know, practice, implement or keep in mind?
Examples can be to create a workflow that has room in your deadlines for you to breathe, so you don’t get overwhelmed. Or to reply to patron’s comments on your posts and acknowledge them by their names. Or maybe you have tips about what time of day you should hold patron-only webcasts, or what types of content you can share as a behind the scenes look of your craft. And so on and so on.
To submit a tip, please leave a comment below and if you use Discord, please include your handle here so we can cite you!
This thread hopefully will serve as a collection of best practices as told by you and your peers!
