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
- Adding teaser text to posts to patron-only posts
- What locked posts look like on social media
Sharing your posts on social media
There are two different places where you'll see the option to share your posts:
On the posts page
Immediately after you publish your post you’ll see 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 icon and selecting the channel you’d like to post to.
Note: The share icon drop-down is also how patrons can share your posts to social media. Don’t worry, if the post is patron-only it will remained locked when shared to social media.
Adding teaser text
Adding teaser text to patron-only posts is a great way to give non patrons a taste of the content you offer paying patrons. You can add teaser text while creating your post, or add it later when editing a post.
What does teaser text look like 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.
