We are on a mission to make community building around shared passions as simple as possible.
After working with over two hundred communities we know what makes members ‘stick’. With Disciple, you can customise your community space and pick features that you need for your community growth.
Why Choose Disciple
If you are tired of Facebook and other social media giants abusing their position and imposing themselves to ever greater degrees on your community building efforts, you should choose Disciple Media’s community builder instead.
It is difficult enough cultivating a community, helping it grow and nurturing engagement without third parties reaching into that community and imposing their own values and monetisation agenda. That won’t happen with Disciple.
Freedom Is a Wonderful Thing
With Disciple, you get complete ownership of your content as well as powerful moderation tools that let you set the boundaries and enforce compliance where necessary. We provide you with the architecture, knowledge and support but otherwise stay out of your way.
The end result is that you can create a community that perfectly reflects your values and beliefs while at the same time reinforcing your brand. And remember, if you ever run into a problem we’re always there to back you up.
No more ceding control of your community to third parties. No more stressing that such outside interference will drive members away.
A Higher Quality User Experience
Disciple Media is intent on enabling you to provide your community members with a higher quality user experience than they would get with mainstream social media apps. To achieve that lofty goal we have developed a robust feature set that incorporates leading-edge capabilities and enables you to bring all vital community activities under a single roof. Those features include:
Push notifications – Target specific members with personalised push notifications, or send blanket notifications to sub-groups or all members of your community. It’s up to you.
Private messaging – Community apps often force users to use a third-party app to send private messages. With Disciple, private messaging is done in-house, thereby promoting continued engagement.
Commenting – Disciple enables both standard and threaded commenting. Threaded comments are a great way to promote interaction and engagement between members.
Livestreaming – Video quality with Disciple live streaming is generally higher than you will encounter with Facebook or Zoom.
With all these features and more at your fingertips, the Disciple community builder will enable you to create a vibrant online space that stands head and shoulders above the competition.

Frequently asked questions
What is a community builder?
It's a technology that enables companies to create their own communities quick and easy. It is different from old-school community software solutions that require bespoke development which would take a lot of time and would be very expensive.
How community builders work?
It's simple. You need to provide some information about your community: name, colors and features and it'll automatically generate your own community space. You can try it for free with Disciple.
What are the benefits of having a community?
Growing your own online community can have an enormous impact on your business. From better engagement than on social media to new revenue streams, like subscriptions and in-app purchases.
The Community Builder with In-Built Monetisation Options
Being able to monetise your online community is key to its long-term viability and the Disciple community builder provides a multitude of ways for you to do just that. While other community platforms like Facebook seem intent on hoarding monetisation opportunities for themselves, Disciple provides you total control with features such as:
In-app purchases - With in-app purchases, you can take your product line to new heights, charge for access to premium content, offer courses in your particular field of expertise and much more.
Subscriptions - Many community builders choose to offer paid subscriptions to their online community with different monthly or yearly subscription prices providing different levels of access. Some also offer a free basic subscription that members can use as a kind of trial run.
Paid app download - Some involved in online community building are reluctant to charge a subscription fee, thinking it will lead to a great deal of churn as those memberships expire. A reasonable way around this is to charge a modest fee to download the app.
Store links - If you have an online store that is separate from your online community you can place links throughout the community environment to increase conversions and get the word out. If you have affiliate deals with other retailers, you can include links to their stores as well.
Advertising and sponsorships - With your Disciple app, you have total control over the number and placement of paid ads. You are also free to enter sponsorship deals, something that is expressly forbidden on some social media sites.
Apple Pay, Google Pay - Non-profit organisations can leverage these payment services to collect donations. While brand sites can use them to facilitate physical purchases.
With Disciple Community Builder, You Have the Power
Our goal at Disciple Media is to put the power back in the hands of the community builder online. We provide the tools and training you need to get your community off the ground and then fade into the background unless you need our help with a technical issue.
How to build my own community?
Launching your own community with Disciple is very simple. You need to start your free trial, provide a bit of information about your community and in a few minutes your community will be ready. Here at Disciple, we're not only creating great technology, but we're also community experts. Once you create your Disciple community, we'll support you with the best tips and strategies.
