Frequently asked questions
What is a forum maker?
Creating a forum is fantastic way to build a thriving online community. Internet users once flocked to popular social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter for the majority of their online discussions, but these platforms have a tendency to limit the amount of control community leaders are allowed over their virtual space.
Online forums are a great way to kick-start discussions with like-minded people. A forum maker such as Disciple, allows you to create a private forum across web and mobile that you manage and control. Our out of the box solution allows you to customise your forum to your exact requirements. A forum maker is much easier to use for you and your members. You also have the added benefit of being in total control of your community, data and platform.
Disciple provides community leaders with the tools needed to set up an easy-to-create online forum and customise it to their liking. Online discussions run smoothly with Disciple’s messaging and commenting features, and community leaders are given the freedom to moderate their community.
How can I make money with my forum?
We have a range of flexible monetisation features for you to choose from. One option is our subscription model; your members will pay a monthly or annual fee to be part of your community. Or, you can set your community up as a paid download from app stores. That means you set the price and your members pay a one-off fee to download and join your community space. Our community software comes with in-app purchases and freemium functionality, meaning you can put a paywall in front of any exclusive content or areas of your community platform. You can also use any combination of these monetisation options to make money in the ways that work for you and your forum.
What is the price?
Creating a forum, works for communities of all shapes and sizes and we're currently powering communities of 100 people and communities of 1 million people alike. Every community is unique and we want to make sure you’re not paying for features and hosting capacity that you don’t need. We’ll give you a personalised price based on your community size and feature requirements. After you complete the contact form below, you’ll have a chance to book a call with one of our Community Specialists to get your exact quote.
Will my community move with me to my new forum?
Migrating your community to your forum, may sound like a challenge. But here at Disciple, we help communities of all sizes migrate from social media, websites and mailing lists into their own, dedicated and highly interactive community spaces. We’ve got plenty of resources, best practices and guides to help make sure your community moves with you when you’re ready to go.
