Patreon has launched new features, a redesigned app, and a new brand identity, according to a blog post by the company. The changes are aimed at giving creators more opportunities to monetize their content and better reflect the ever-evolving creative landscape. Here are some of the key features:
- Commerce: This feature allows creators to sell one-off digital goods and offer free subscriptions. Creators can sell individual videos, audio, and downloadable files to anyone, even if they are not a subscriber. The feature was announced back in June and is now fully rolled out.
- Redesigned app: Patreon has redesigned its app to make it easier for creators to manage their memberships and for patrons to discover new content. The app now includes a new dashboard, improved search functionality, and a revamped creator page.
- New brand identity: Patreon has also unveiled a new logo, wordmark, and changes to typography, color, and photography. The company says the changes are designed for a “digital-first world” and reflect the ever-evolving creative landscape.
Patreon is a membership platform that allows creators to get paid for their work. Creators can set up a Patreon page and offer different membership tiers, each with its own set of rewards. Fans can then subscribe to a creator’s Patreon page to get access to the rewards that are offered.
Patreon’s new features and redesigned app are part of the company’s efforts to expand beyond its core membership model and give creators more ways to monetize their content. The changes also reflect Patreon’s commitment to staying ahead of the curve in a rapidly changing digital landscape.
