Posts are where your audio, video, image and written creations live for your patrons to enjoy. Posts are accessible from your patrons’ account feed, your page and through email notifications for patrons who opt in. If you've enabled our RSS feature, your audio post content will also populate patrons’ private RSS feeds.
Posts are an instant and direct connection to your Patreon community. You can publish posts for select tiers, all of your patrons or publicly for anyone who lands on your page.
To create a new post:
- Click on the Create button from the left-hand navigation while logged into your Patreon account
- Choose your Post type – this could be a text, image, video, link, or audio post. If you’d like to open your draft in another tab, you can right-click or ctrl+click and select Open in another tab
Once in the post editor, you’ll need to create a post title (required) and let us know to whom you’d like the post to be viewable (required)
Pro tip: making public posts is a great way to give followers an idea of what patrons can access!
- Optional post features include
- Uploading attachment files for your patrons to download
- Tagging your post for easy organisation
- Setting early access for a specific tier
- Adding Preview Text for social sharing and public teasers
On desktop, you can preview your post before publishing by clicking the View button
