Promoting your Patreon page on your social media channels can be crucial to raising awareness of your creator page, and converting followers and friends into patrons.
In this article, we’ll go over:
- Sharing your posts on social media
- Teaser text on patron only posts
- How locked posts show up on social media
Sharing your posts on social media
There are two different places where you'll find the option to share your posts:
On the posts page
Immediately after you publish your post you’ll find the option to share your post on your Facebook and Twitter accounts (requires log in authentication).
Directly from the post in your Feed
You can share posts directly from your creator page by clicking the share button and selecting the channel you’d like to post to.
Note: The share button drop-down is also how patrons can share your posts to social media. Don’t worry, if the post is patron-only it will remain locked when shared to social media.
Adding teaser text
Teaser text offers non patrons and patrons who don't have access to a post a glimpse of what you're offering at that tier. Your posts' teaser text defaults to the first 140 characters of the text body section of your post. You can customize teaser text while creating your post, or add it later when editing a post.
How does a teaser text show up on social media?
When someone clicks on the social media post, they’ll be taken to a locked post page where they can become a patron.
