Introducing, patron polls! Now you can better understand, engage, and grow your audience by cutting through the noise and getting input from the fans that matter most. Click here to start your first poll. Have you ever been thinking through your next release — a video, song, post, or sketch — and wondered what your fans would think about it? And not just your casual reader or listener, but your biggest fans: your patrons.  Polls can be single answer or multiple choice, and will run for any duration you choose.   Real creator examples: A handful of creators got early access to polls and already found unique ways to poll their patrons.

Being a patron is something to be proud of. That’s why we decided to build patrons a beautiful new profile to showcase the creators they support, their comments, and the posts they like. Starting today, all patrons have access to their new profiles, which have been redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up. The new page includes shiny new creator cards that show off who patrons are supporting and how long they’ve been their patron. If you’re a patron, your profile is the perfect way to demonstrate that you are a true fan. If you’re a creator, your patrons’ profiles are the key to understanding your audience and their interests. With the new patron profiles, we hope you might learn something…

You’re an artist, plain and simple. No matter what you make (webcomics, music videos, blacklight paintings), your work is unique and deserves to shine. While our first crack at the creator page design was loved by many, the product team at Patreon has worked long and hard to give your page a new look, feel, and perception.
