So why do your most ardent fans leap at the chance to connect with you via live stream? Because going live means unrehearsed real-time interaction, and your patrons love authenticity. Ready to give it a try? Here’s a quick GetVokl-Patreon playbook you can follow to ensure successful results.
- Set up a "special" tier on Patreon just for this.
- Go to GetVokl and connect your Patreon account: https://about.getvokl.com/patreon
- Next create your event on GetVokl (make sure to connect to your Patreon account, and select the new tier you just created.)
- Paste the link to the GetVokl event in a Patreon Post to the new tier you just created.
- Add instructions so your fans know what to do, here’s an example:
"Here's the link to the upcoming live event. Make sure to sign into GetVokl with your Patreon info! Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel, to get a reminder."
Arguably the most important step in successfully using GetVokl is your promotion strategy. Here are some ideas that can help you get ahead:
A few weeks out from your live-stream:
- Start a building up the hype to your existing Patreon subscribers, social media followers, and groups.
- Promote the event as a "special" event. Mention that as an audience member, they will be able to engage live with you via either chat or video.
- If you plan anything special for the event like giveaways, guests, happenings, drop hints. Get that FOMO going.
Day of event, create that sense of urgency:
- Send out a reminder to your patrons with a link to the event.
- Ask them to share the event with others that might be interested.
- Re-Post the reminder through-out the day on your social media channels, so your followers don't miss it.
- If you have an email list send out a blast with a link to the Patreon event.

Encourage your fans to participate during the event. Take advantage of the interactive format of GetVokl. Prompt your fans to ask questions, and answer them in real time. Here are a few other things to think about as well:
- Tweet and post out teasers of what's happening during the live event (with a link to the Patreon Post) so that those who haven't opted in (yet) might be inclined to check it out or attend future live events. Don't forget to leverage relevant @names and hashtags.
- Plan the live show when a complementary real-world event is happening, for example, Ring Rust Radio scheduled their recent event during the recent WrestleMania Show and offered a virtual alternative for people who couldn’t attend IRL.
- Encourage fans to share the link on social media in real time by giving them a shout out when they do.
Don’t forget to send a thank you to those who attended on social, your Patreon page, or via and email blast.
- Encourage your fans to share their favorite takeaways from your livestream, review your event, or fill out a questionnaire to suggest any improvements they feel would benefit the event going forward.
- Post a short video with highlights from your event to your social channels.
- Retweet and re-share your fans feedback.
