This article will go over how a creator can check the Patreon users who have chosen to follow them instead of joining a membership. It will cover what a follower is and what they have access to.
What is a follower?
A follower is a lesser known sector of your community – essentially, a follower is a potential member. Though they haven’t yet made the commitment to join your membership, they want to follow your work and check your progress.
Where can I find who’s following me?
- Log in and click the Audience button from the creator menu.
- Click on Relationship manager from the menu list.
- Click on the Filters button to open your filter options.
- Select the Followers filter and click on the Apply Filters button to get a list of your current followers.
Can I message my followers?
Not at the moment – you can only message members who joined your membership or former members who have been billed.
What can my followers access?
Your followers will be alerted whenever you make a public post – so if you want to convert followers into members, one great way to send them a message is via public posts. We encourage you to make a combination of both member-only posts and public posts. You can use member-only content within your public posts to help convert followers into members.
