Client Background

PandaSama

PandaSama is a popular Patreon creator of Sims 4 mods that specialize in animations.

They reached Awesome Web Designs with the aim of establishing a professional online presence and transitioning their sales from Patreon to their own marketplace.

The goal was to create a seamless experience for their current subscribers to transition from Patreon to their own independent sales platform, while also expanding their reach and control over their sales process.

The Challenge

Ensuring seamless access for Patrons during the Patreon to website transition

  • Transition from Patreon Sales: The creator needed a smooth transition from selling exclusively on Patreon to managing sales on their website without losing her patron base.
  • Membership Integration: Ensuring existing Patreon members could easily access exclusive content on the new website.
  • User Experience: Creating a seamless and intuitive experience for existing patrons and new visitors.

The Solution

WordPress Woo integration with Patreon

To address these challenges, we built a comprehensive website using WordPress, which is known for its flexibility and ease of use.

Here’s how we achieved our objectives:

  • WordPress Development: We developed a robust and visually appealing website using WordPress, tailored to showcase the creator’s mods effectively.
  • Patreon Integration: We integrated the website with the creator’s Patreon membership. This allowed existing patrons to log in to the new site using their Patreon credentials, ensuring uninterrupted access to exclusive content.
  • User Experience Design: We focused on providing an intuitive and seamless user experience, designing the website to be easy to navigate for existing patrons and new visitors. The layout and features were optimized for desktop and mobile devices.

The Results / Future Plans

A remarkable marketplace achievement

The new website has been a resounding success. Within the first seven days of its launch, the site attracted over 38,000 visitors, indicating strong interest and engagement from existing patrons and new users.

The user-friendly integration with Patreon ensured that no patrons were lost during the transition, and the professional design and functionality of the website received positive feedback from the community.

In conclusion, this project highlights the potential for Patreon creators to expand their reach and improve their sales process by developing their own professional websites. By leveraging WordPress’s flexibility and ensuring a seamless integration with Patreon, we were able to provide a solution that met all the client’s needs and exceeded expectations.

What’s next? We are excited to continue our collaboration with the client, focusing on several key areas to further enhance her online presence:

Social Media Management: Helping her manage and grow her social media channels to reach a wider audience.
Security Updates: Providing regular security updates to protect her website and ensure it remains secure for all users.
