It’s hard to select and implement a community platform.

You need to know the different platforms, their pricing tiers, comparable features, and know if others liked the platform.

Then you need to see demos of each and negotiate with each. It’s an exhaustive, risky, process.

We’ve spent 5 months pulling together our experiences (and data) into a simple tool that can do this for you. Today, we’re happy to launch our online community platform tool which lets you compare, filter, and read the reviews of the top platforms.

If you want to know what these platforms cost, what features they offer, what community professionals think of each of them, and get quotes, click here.

The tool is entirely free to use – we only ask you to help us out by submitting a review of platforms you’ve used in the past.

    This has been very helpful.

  3. Richard Millington says:

    you’re welcome Brittney, glad it helped.

    What platform did you go for in the end?

  4. Brittney Wilson says:

    We are still in the process of deciding. :slight_smile:

  5. Geert Jan Kraan says:

    Hi Richard,

    We tried to update our listing in the platform comparison tool, but were unsuccessful in reaching you. What’s the right approach to follow here?

    Send me the info and I’ll include it in the next big update. It’s a bit of a fiddly tool and I need to refresh my memory on how to update it first.
