Should you build community with Tribe or Mighty Networks?

Tribe is a community platform. The core features take care of the essential components of the community and the App Store enables admins to enhance the community by installing apps. Think of it as a software solution that offers a range of building blocks (similar to LEGO bricks) to create different types of brand-led communities.

Companies use the building blocks offered by Tribe’s platform to build broadly customer and partner communities, community of practice (CoP) and different types of niche social networks.

However, if you are looking for something very straightforward that can essentially serve as an alternative to a Facebook Group, then Mighty Networks is the right solution.

At Tribe, we understand how important it is for any business to configure the community based on the brand guidelines. Hence, Tribe offers the exhaustive set of options to seamlessly merge the community with the site or change the look and feel exactly the way you need.

For example, apart from adding your logo and brand assets, you can change the navigation to merge with any site’s header and footer.

Mightly Networks primarily works with themes and allows you to change the design by quickly adding a logo along with a selection of primary and secondary colors.

Hence, if you need to customize the look and feel at the granular level, then Tribe would be the right solution.

We understand that some of the community builders need to monetize the community. It can be anything from selling courses to giving access to premium content and coaching. Tribe allows you to do that with third-party integrations such as Outseta, Memberful, and automation via Zapier.

Mighty Networks already has the infrastructure for community monetization, so there is in-built payment processing capability. They have done a good job of it, so you can charge your members with a subscription fee.

Choose Mighty Networks if easily monetizing the community is your priority.

APIs are designed to deliver raw data from one system to another. This allows companies to build further customizations such as custom integrations and dashboards.

Tribe has taken the API-first approach which means any community powered by Tribe is practically a client of the API. This helps our customer in capturing every single action in the community and merge the community in their existing processes.

Mighty networks doesn’t offer an API, so if you will be building custom integration, then Tribe will be perfect.

Tribe has an extensive app store which can be used to elevate the existing community platform. Some of the examples are Google Analytics integration, Zapier integration, Custom Code Snippet, and Cookie Consent Manager.

Mighty Networks doesn’t offer these types of modular apps to improve the community.

So, if you are interested in getting superior value out the community solution via apps, then you should explore Tribe.

At Tribe, we understand that businesses are using many third-party apps and it is important to facilitate smooth data flow between these apps. So, Tribe offers native integrations with various tools (including Zapier) to help customer easily automate processes and enable data flow with the software services they already use.

Mightly Networks also offers integration, but it has to be primarily done via only Zapier as integrations with other apps are very limited.

Hence, if you need to integrate with other popular tools in an easier way, then Tribe will be the right platform.

Tribe has strong reporting and analytics capabilities via both the in-built dashboard and external integration. You can get a quick snapshot of the overall health of your community directly inside the platform. Additionally, you can easily track member behavior and build reports via our tight integration with tools such as Google Analytics and Amplitude.

Mighty Networks doesn’t support these type of deep integrations for granular reporting of metrics.

Choose Tribe if you would like to understand exactly how your members are behaving and get a grip on the community health. This can help you evaluate the return on investment and get internal buy-in.

In terms of pricing, Tribe comes with a free basic plan that supports 100 total members, Spaces, and your custom domain/sub-domain. The Plus plan costs $59 per month and Premium plan costs $299 per month with an annual subscription. The pricing for the enterprise plan depends on the exact requirements and subscription fee changes widely from customer to customer.

Mightly Networks starts with a free plan (no custom domain) and the other plans’ are $23 per month and $81 per month with an annual subscription.

Tribe’s free plan offers more customization options and the Premium Plan offers more features. If you are looking for more affordable solution with some restrictions, Mighty Networks can be a good option.

Tribe helped us build a unified community with continuous experience for learners and create a robust communication channel.
