Tribe, A Powerful Disciple Media Alternative

What’s the difference between
Tribe and Disciple Media

Disciple Media offers a PWA (Progressive Web App) and mobile apps for community building. Largely influencers, celebrities, and course creators are building communities with Disciple to connect fans, charge subscriptions, and sell courses. In terms of pricing, the PWA ($55/month) offered by Disciple Media allows you reister 100 members and have 1 admin account. The mobile app pricing starts from $549/month.

Tribe, on the other hand, is designed for businesses looking to build customer communities to offer self-service, peer-to-peer support, feedback collection, and communication related to new updates. The comprehensive API and embeddable widgets empower brands and creators to add social touchpoints inside the web app, mobile app, and website. Of course, communities built with Tribe can function as stand-alone community websites.

The customization capability and modularity of the apps available on the platform allow you to design a site based on the community components you need and seamlessly reflect your branding. In terms of integration with third-party apps, Tribe connects with popular third-party tools and easily merges with business processes. Tribe’s free plan offers support for custom domain and 100 total members. The paid plan starts from $49/month with 10,000 total members, unlimited spaces, and 5 staff seats.
