You’ve heard of these two platforms from the creator economy, but is Mighty Networks better than Thinkific? Let’s find out.
Mighty Networks vs Thinkific: The judgement criteria
Is it right for you?
Mighty Networks is mostly inclined towards educators & coaches. If you’re looking to break into a different niche, then it’s probably not the right platform for you to build a community on. However, it can help you sell courses and set up accountability groups for your members.
Thinkific is also primarily focused on online courses. It’s essentially an enterprise learning management system that can help you create, market and sell online courses on various subjects. With Thinkific, you’ll get slightly more control over your audience insights and personalization.
Can you build YOUR brand?
Mighty Networks lets you upload different forms of multimedia (images, videos, files and code) onto your page for added engagement. You’ll be offered two types of landing page templates, which makes your personalization options quite limited. However, you do have options to upload a banner image, choose the color scheme, and type out a custom header and tagline.
Thinkific users will be able to customize their page to align with brand colors and tone of voice. Since the platform supports custom domains, users can access both CSS and HTML. The layout design is quite simple and user-friendly, so it won’t take long to pick up
Can you make data-driven decisions?
Mighty Networks has a community analytics feature called Mighty Insights. It comes with an analytics dashboard that provides community data for improved decision-making. It includes a detailed community overview tab for a quick snapshot of member activity in your Mighty Network. You’ll also receive insights into how many active members you have, member traffic, activity trends and more.
With Thinkific, you get various built-in trackers to gauge your course’s performance. This includes progress reports, activity feeds, information on completion rates and number of views. The platform also provides custom video metrics tracking for an overall idea of student engagement with your course content.

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).
