This article will go over how a creator can check the Patreon users who have chosen to follow them instead of pledging. 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 patron. Though they haven’t yet made the commitment to pledge to you, they want to follow your work and check your progress.
Where can I find who’s following me?
- Log in and click the Patrons link 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 currently only message patrons who are actively pledging to you or former patrons who have been billed in the past.
What can my followers access?
Your followers will be alerted whenever you make a public post – so if you want 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 use patron-only content within your public posts to help convert followers into patrons.
