You can create a new Creator profile by clicking here.
On the signup page will be asked to enter your preferred login details and select your Creator Rating, going off of the type of content you will be presenting on your profile. Here is more info on the different categories to help you decide.
The next step is to add a profile photo and description. These are important in order to have a complete profile, however a profile photo is not required in order to finish onboarding. It can easily be added later under Settings. A profile description is required, however you can write a few words here and then add the rest later.
From there you can hit Continue and then Finish Later which takes you to straight to your profile dashboard. From your dashboard and/or Settings everything else can be completed.
On your Creator dashboard you can start by activating your Connect features. Connect features include texting, calling and Video Chat, however you can activate all or some of them by clicking the Activate link.
By selecting Activate you will be taken to the Services & Rates section of your Settings. Here you can select which features to offer. It is important to set them up early. You can always set your status to Unavailable so that you do not receive incoming requests until you are ready.
The Manage Features section allows you to select the Connect features that you want to offer. For Video Chat you can use the slider to select the minimum amount of time you want to allow for chatting. This can be between 5 minutes - 30 minutes.
Same thing can be done for phone calls, if the option is selected.
All of the features that you decide to allow will show up under Connect Pricing which is right underneath Manage Features. From here you can set your prices per text, per photo or video text, and for phone calls and Video Chat. Texting and calling only work if you add your phone number under Settings > Account (more info on this below).
The average Creator prices their texts between $1.50 per text - $5 per text. Photo & Video text messages are typically priced higher, between $2.50 per media text - $20 per media text. Supporters are charged for all Texts and Picture & Video Message to and from Creators.
Phone calls are priced per minute and range from $2 per minute - $20 per minute.
Video Chat is typically priced much higher at $10 per minute - $25 per minute. Of course pricing is up you! Once pricing is set you can hit save.
The last step and most important step is to set up your Subscription Tier pricing. You can either keep the Tier names that are listed, edit them, or add new ones. You do not have to keep the default Tiers that appear automatically.
The Pay It Forward Tier is a donation based Tier (Supporters do not get anything from donating). If you don’t want to offer this Tier you can disable it here.
When creating a new Tier, it must include both a name and description of what the Tier will offer. Make sure to be as detailed as you can in the description so that Supporters know what they will be getting.
You can offer to share your private social media accounts with a specific Tier levels. You can also elect to collect Email and Shipping addresses for Supporters who subscribe to a specific Tier. You can find more information on Multi-Tier Subscriptions here.
Your Settings include the following options:
1. Profile Page: Update your profile photo, intro video and description
2. Account Page
5. Services & Rates (featured above)
Back on your dashboard all of your Connect features will be offline to start. You can toggle individual features on by hitting the toggle on each one.
New content can be uploaded through your creator dashboard by selecting the Upload button.
You can upload videos, photos, audio files or add text posts. We support most video and photo files 3GB or less in size. All posts can be made public or assigned to a specific Tier of your choosing. Public posts are available to everyone who goes to your profile.
Also on your dashboard you have access to your Promote / Sharable Link and your Referral Link.
The Promote / Sharable Link takes potential supporters directly to your profile and should be used for everything you do to promote.
