I looked at Kajabi and Thinkific and Teachable and a variety of others, but they didn’t accomplish what I was looking for, they didn’t allow the customization and the experience standard that I wanted for my customers to be able to experience when they invest in my programs.

Katie Walthall Mehnert


We moved to BuddyBoss from Mighty Networks. Just bought the app for new year. It seems much easier and more robust than what I had. And what I was paying for an app was pretty crazy.

You don’t have to be a total tech genius to use it. But you have the flexibility to take it as far as you want to take it, which is something that’s really really important to us. And we’ve had fantastic feedback from our customers, who have straight away started using the app.
