This article will go over how a creator can view the Patreon users who have chosen to follow them instead of pledge to them. It will cover what a follower is and what they have access to if you are able to message them.
What is a follower?
A follower is a less commonly known sector of your community – essentially a follower is a potential patron. Though they haven’t yet made the commitment to pledge to you, they want to follow your work and see your progress.
Where can I see who’s following me?
You can now view your followers within your .
Just filter select the followers from the membership type drop-down menu to to to filter down and see just your current followers.
Can I message my followers?
Not at the moment – you can currently only message patrons who are actively pledging to you or former patrons who have been billed for a pledge in the past.
What can my followers see?
Your followers will be alerted whenever you make a public post – so if you’re looking to convert followers into patrons, one great way to send them a message is via public posts. We encourage you to make a combination of both patron-only posts and public posts. You can tease patron-only content within your public posts to help convert followers in to patrons.
