Whether you want to publish something publicly, for all of your patrons, or only for select tiers, posting allows you to share your creations with the exact audience you’d like to reach.
In this article, we’ll cover:
- How to make a post using the new workflow
- What’s new with this update
- What this will mean for your existing patrons
- Suggestions for how to communicate with patrons who are seeing locked posts
Setting access to your posts
- Create a new post by clicking Posts from the creator navigation, and then click New
- Draft your post as you typically would
- On the right-hand side of the post editor, you’ll have the option to set your post access to:
- The Public
- For All patrons (including patrons not in a tier)
- For Select Tiers
- Add any teaser text or organisational tags that you’d like
- Next, you can publish your post, or schedule it for a specific time!
If you are in our Pro or Premium platform plans and want your post accessible only by patrons in specific tiers, choose Select Tiers. You’ll find all of your tiers appear. Deselect any Tiers that will not have access – by default, all Tiers will be selected when you choose Select Tiers.
Why is posting for Select Tiers helpful?
- It gives you more control over which patrons find your posts.
- Do you have multiple projects and offer different benefits at the same tier level? You’ll have the option to provide content to multiple tiers at the same price. So you can have two £5 tiers offering completely different benefits.
You’ll easily find all of your patrons organised into the tier that corresponds with their payment level within the Relationship manager – so no more guesswork on what posts different patrons can view!
What does this mean for patrons?
- If you select Public, anyone can find your posts even if they’re not a patron.
- If you select All Patrons, all of your paying patrons will find your post, regardless of the tier they are in, even if they chose no tier when they signed up.
- If you choose Select Tiers, only the patrons you select will have access to your posts. That means patrons who selected no tier when they signed up won’t have access to your post unless they update their membership with you. And patrons paying a higher amount than the tier they signed up for will only have access to posts available to their tier.
Sample letter for no tier patrons
If you have patrons in no tier or are paying more than their tier price, we suggest you reach out to them to inform them that they may not have access to all of your posts.
You can use the filter options (No tier) in your Relationship Manager to select these patrons and send them a group message.
