Mighty Networks Vs. Disciple Media: The judgement criteria

  • check mark

    How much it’ll cost you

    Staying within your marketing budget is important, and here’s where Mighty Networks takes the cake with a mere $99/month pricing plan. Disciple Media, however, is mobile-first and hence, heavier on the pocket at a whopping $458/month.

    Additionally, you’ll fall into the trap of paying additional costs for every little thing. Their rate card says enough:

    ● Over 100 members - extra $108-$1,083/mo
    ● More than 1 admin - extra $29/mo
    ● Mobile community - extra $458/mo
    ● Remove Disciple branding - extra $108/mo

    Which is a good fit for YOU?

    Mighty Networks has a laser focus on educators & coaches. But if your focus is on another industry, there isn’t much scope for community building. Sure, you’ll be able to sell your courses and set up accountability groups for your members, but that’s where it ends.

    On the other hand, Disciple Media caters to communities of all shapes and sizes. This is especially important, in case you want to make a pivot, or branch out to other niches. If money isn't a factor for you, we’d say Disciple Media wins in the versatility department.

    Can you get your own branded mobile app?

    Disciple Media’s main offering is a white-labelled mobile app - wherein you can completely remove the Disciple logo for an additional cost of $89/month. But if you’re using Mighty Networks, you’ll not get a white-labelled mobile app.

    Mighty Networks, however, has rolled out a different offering - MightyPro. It allows you a white-labelled app but can cost ~$30,000/year. It’s definitely not worth the money.

The difference is in our DNA

We're content creators, teachers AND community builders.

And, we know how everything ties together to make a business.

We've been teaching online since 2018. We ran one of the world's largest educational communities from 2019-2021 and scaled to $500,000 revenue by selling cohort-based courses. We kept hopping from one software to another because the experience of actually using all available software is bad.

This led us to build Scenes - an all-in-one platform to run your courses, cohorts, webinars, events, voice chat rooms, etc. - on mobile & web (100% white-labeled).
