Tribe Platform Alternative. More personal, more customizable.
Should you use Tribe or Disciple to build your online community?
Disciple Media: The Tribe alternative which puts community first.
Tribe is an online community platform that allows you to create a community website that focuses primarily on product promotion with features including upvotes, likes, shares, and widgets that can be used as social components. Tribe’s Activity Feed is driven by machine learning and they offer app extensions, smart targeting, and gamification.
Disciple is a leading Tribe alternative that prioritizes community building over the promotion of specific products. We put a premium on accessibility and provide a simple and affordable way to create a community platform across Web and Mobile. But that’s not all. Unlike Tribe, here at Disciple, we offer innovative, highly effective ways to monetize your community without engaging in a hard sell, whilst also providing limitless ways to boost engagement via Direct Messaging, Threaded-comments, Polls, Livestreams, Push Notifications, Folders, and much more.
