More than 5,000 creators and businesses across the world trust Circle with their community.
It was more challenging to create engagement.
It’s not collaborative, it does nothing to invite users in.
Navigating the platform is not very intuitive – to the point of being a barrier for many community members.
Some of our members are confused about the home activity feed and the course activity feed and find it difficult to navigate between the two.
In my experience, it is very difficult to get people to join and engage.
Community members are limited in what they can share.
Circle makes your community a welcoming place for members, inspiring true conversations.
We keep things simple enough to help communities thrive, with tools and integrations to make creators’ lives easier, too.
