Recommending creators (Early access)

  • Updated

The creator recommendation feature is currently in early access to select creators, and participation is on an invite-only basis. We will be testing and developing this feature to see how it best drives impact for creators and will expand access later in the year.

We built creator recommendations to make it easy for creators to recommend each other and cross-promote. If you have access to this early access feature, you can start recommending other creators to your paid members. This is a great way to increase visibility for fellow creators and introduce your paid members to new and exciting content.

Once you recommend someone, they'll also be invited to join the experiment and may recommend you in return. Creator recommendations will be shown to paid members on limited surfaces and will continue to evolve as we test and learn what drives impact.

How it works

Recommending another creator

Here’s how you can start recommending other creators:

  1. Head to your creator page and look for the new Recommendations tab. This is where you can create new recommendations and see all creators who have recommended you

  2. You can search for any creator you feel deserves more recognition. At this stage, only non-18+ creators can be recommended
  3. You also have the option to share why you're recommending this creator
  4. Your members will receive a notification when you recommend another creator.

These recommendations will be visible on your creator home under the Recommendations tab and on the posts page for your members (Both free and paid). Additionally, they may appear on other surfaces, such as post-signup screens, email notifications, and more.

Deleting a recommendation

You can delete a recommendation you have made and any recommendations about you at any time in the recommendations tab.

Deleting a recommendation you made

To delete any recommendation you’ve made, locate the “Recommendations for your fans” section within the recommendations tab. Click on the three ellipses and choose delete. Your members will no longer see this recommendation and will be removed from the system entirely.

Deleting a recommendation made about you

When a creator recommends you, you will be notified and can monitor what is being said about you. Their members will be able to see the recommendation, and this will not be visible on your page. To delete, head to the recommendations tab and locate the “creators recommending you to their fans” section. Click on the three ellipses and choose delete.

How will this look like for your members?

Currently, we are testing different notifications and surfaces for where to show your members your recommendations, including on your creator home and individual posts' pages.

You can preview how the recommendation looks by viewing your creator home or by checking your posts page. Your view will be the same as your members'.
