Migrating from Disciple?

We know switching platforms can be stressful…

You don’t need to move your entire community all at once.

 

Get started with Circle for free, invite a few members and see how your people react to having access to your content on any device.

 

Once you see engagement grow, you — and your members — will feel at home.

“To do the things I wanted would make a hassle in terms of payment processing with Mighty Networks. Because I didn’t want to have 2 sites for my members and students I decided to do the trial at Circle to see if it was possible. I’m now a paid member and see that I can get my vision done.”

Frequently Asked Questions

All kinds of communities use Circle. Some examples of thriving Circle communities are customer communities, course communities, membership communities, coaching communities, and clubs & organizations.

Yes! Members can engage with your online community from anywhere with the Circle iOS app.

Circle has 3 plans: 

  • Basic for up to 1,000 members.
  • Professional for up to 10,000 members.
  • Enterprise for up to 100,000 members. 

Disciple’s plans are a little more complicated:

  • Their cheapest desktop community is up to 100 members.
  • The cheapest mobile is up to 500.
  • Then there are (expensive) add ons to increase to 1,000, 10,000 or 50,000 members

Unlike Disciple’s expensive in-app purchase processing fees (30% to Apple or Google), Circle fees are as low as 0.5% + Stripe standard processing fees (these vary by country).

Circle offers you features that Disciple just doesn’t have. It is the best community platform designed to keep your community engaged and interacting with one another while monetizing your content.

Circle keeps things seamless for you and your community. It’s the community building app that keeps its desktop and mobile devices experience the same. It keeps you from having to edit each person’s experience. It makes creating online communities a piece of cake.
