    Mighty Networks lets you build your brand. It offers a whitelabled mobile app and branded app notifications under its Mighty pro plan, costing around $30,000. Moreover, your members can search for content in the search bar to easily access any content.

    With Facebook groups, there isn't much customization as it's a part of Facebook, so there will always be Facebook's tag around it. However you can create public and private Facebook groups, but that's the extent to what you can do here. In private groups, you can maintain the exclusivity of your content and control the group's quality.

    Which is a good fit for you?

    Mighty Networks is made for creating a community that directly reflects your brand. For example, suppose you're a course creator, online coach, or educator. In that case, Mighty Networks can help you build a community around your business.

    Suppose you already have a business, for example. In that case, if you sell your courses on Udemy, creating a Facebook group can benefit you. You can direct your students to your exclusive group and share your content there. However, a major downside to the Facebook group is that your members can get distracted by many posts on their Facebook timeline. So, your content might get lost in the sea of other posts and may not reach your audience.

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).
