If you haven’t already heard of the Mighty Network, you might want to get those fingers tapping into Google and get checking it out. It’s pretty much the best course-catalog networking platform around.
There aren’t many places on the world wide web where you can run a community, online courses, content, videos, events, memberships, and digital platforms all in one place under your brand. In fact, there’s only one place you can do so – on Mighty Network.
It really is an innovative platform that thousands upon thousands of people use and enjoy daily. It’s super convenient and is just an all-around superstar really.
You can’t ask for anything more, it already has everything you could ever need.
But as with anything I see that seems too good to be true, I immediately get my suspicious face on and ask what’s the catch?
More often than not, the catch is that the site is going to make me split with my hard-earned money, something I don’t do lightly.
The Mighty Network pricing is no exception, the platform is not free, but then with so many features, it is fairly unsurprising.
And actually, the membership is well worth the money considering you can make it back and more through producing online courses.
But if like me, you don’t easily part with your money until you know all the details, then this will be the perfect guide for you.
Throughout this article, I’ll go over all of the pricing of the Mighty Network and exactly what you’ll get for your cash.
Pricing Plan Overview
There are three plans that you can choose from with Mighty Networks:
- The Community Plan – $39 per month
- The Business Plan – $119 per month
- The Mighty Pro – personal quote upon request
It is also worth noting that if you opt for the yearly plan as opposed to the monthly plan you will receive a 20% discount on the overall price.
Personally, I would opt for a monthly plan to begin with to ensure that the network is for you and that it is something that you’ll get a lot of use out of.
If and when it does meet your needs, you can then switch over to a yearly plan instead and get that sweet 20% discount.
There will also be an additional transaction fee for the plans. The community plan’s fee is an additional 3% of the price, while all other plans are an additional 2%.
I think that this is a bit of a flaw, perhaps not so much with the much cheaper community plan, but considering the expense of the other plans, there should be no need for an additional fee.
Unfortunately, there are no free options for the network whatsoever.
However, they do offer a free 14-day trial on both the community and the business plans, so you do have two weeks where you can trial the site and check it out without having to pay a dime.
So, now we know more about the pricing of the plans available, let’s take a closer look at what you’ll actually get for the money that you’re spending.
The Community Plan
As you have probably gathered from the name, this plan centers around all of the community features that the network offers. So what exactly can you do on this plan?
Well, you can create groups, topics, articles, polls, posts, quizzes, and events. And that’s not all, there are other features available such as
- Reporting & Analytics
- Landing Page Editor
- Member Directory
- Direct Messaging
- Group Messaging
- Charge For Community Access
You also have the live streaming feature which is great. However, the slight catch is that it is limited and restricted on this plan.
You can only stream for a total of 2 hours per month and you have a maximum viewer limit of 50 viewers per stream. If you want to upgrade your live streaming feature, you’ll have to opt for the business plan instead.
Your members will also be able to easily access your community via IOS or Android apps which helps increase engagement as the network is easily available at all times.
And if this wasn’t enough, you can also add an unlimited amount of hosts, moderators, and members to all plans.
For those looking to build a standalone online community, this plan could not be a better option, it’s a great starting block and most members typically begin on this plan and then upgrade as time goes on.
The Business Plan
With the business plan, you’ll have all the features that are on offer in the community plan plus the addition of a few extra features.
One of the first things you’ll notice is that the live-streaming limits that are seen within the community plan are significantly increased. You’ll also get an additional 100GB of storage on this plan compared to the former plan.
The extra cost of the business plan will also grant you access to a multitude of useful features such as
- Add videos and other content to your courses
- Create course-specific discussion groups
- Sell courses along with online communities
- Drip feed content and create prerequisite lessons
- Drag-n-drop course builder to create a curriculum
And this isn’t all, you’ll also find several other supporting functionalities on offer such as
- Access to their customer support team
- The ability to export your members’ data, including email
- Third-party integrations such as Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel
These additional features do massively set the plans apart. And since most of the most useful and effective features are only available on the business plan, it’s not hard to see why it is the most popular option of the three.
The business plan is a great option for those that seek a community but also wish to provide content through courses and memberships.
Mighty Pro Plan
Now, there is the third option, the Mighty Pro Plan. I can’t comment on the pricing of this plan as it will vary from creator to creator as the Mighty Network provides a custom quote for each individual based on their needs.
However, I can comment on what you can expect from the plan. The main advantage of this plan is the white-labeled iOS and Android apps that are available for your community.
The Mighty Pro can really enhance a business into a total enterprise.
The networks team will personally build your very own custom app that will be available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
And that’s not all, you’ll also come away with a branded community space where you can choose your own banners and fonts, meaning that it will be totally personalized to you.
This plan is the best option for pretty advanced community hosts. It is worth noting that the price you’re paying is for the custom-built app. You won’t have any upgraded or additional features compared to the business plan.
While we are talking about pricing, it is also worth mentioning that you can also purchase Engagement Boosts on the network.
Think of these as little add ons that you can opt in for. These boosts will give you extra storage and more streaming hours as well as a higher capacity for viewers.
There are five engagement boost levels that range in price.
The lowest level, and cheapest option, will upgrade your viewer capacity to 500 people and give you ten hours per month of streaming time as well as an additional 300GB of data storage.
This boost will gost you $70 per month.
Level 5, the most expensive option, will bump your viewer capacity up to a whopping 10,000 participants and a massive 50 hours of streaming per month.
You’ll also get a huge 6000 GB of data storage. This boost will set you back around $1250 per month.
Then of course, there are three levels in between these two that range in price and features.
Mighty Networks Vs Competitors
So how does the Mighty Networks pricing compare with other similar networks that are available?
There aren’t many options online that quite compare to the Mighty Networks, but Circle and Tribe are two great community based networks that could be seen as their competitor.
Circle has three plans available that range from $39 per month to $399 per month. This too comes with a transaction fee that can range from 1% to 4% depending on the plan.
Tribe actually offers a free plan, but their purchasable plans range from $59 per month to $239 per month.
I hope this guide has helped you decide whether or not the Mighty Network is a suitable platform for you.
The pricing is pretty straightforward once you know what each plan offers – which you do now!
For those wishing to host communities the community plan will be the option for you, however if you’re looking to create online courses then you mau want to opt for the business plan.
And of course, thanks to the 14-day free trial, you can always give the platform a chance for those two weeks and see how you find it, from there you can make a decision based on which plan you’d prefer and whether you’d rather pay monthly or go all in for the year and get that 20% discount!
