Excellent for a lot of use cases but lacking some core features

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall I think Circle is a good value for it's cost and is suitable for a lot of folks who have smaller communities or who focus on a membership-based business. They seem very product driven in their approach and committed to delivering new features and improving on a continual basis.

Pros

Circle was very easy to onboard and integrate. The company is very involved in their own community, and seemed to be extremely engaged with user feedback and activating on it. We've been live for 7 months now and many of the features I was disappointed weren't available have already been pushed live, with more on their roadmap coming in the next several months.

Cons

Out of the box, it's very easy to use but only comes with one template making all Circle communities look very homogenous and restricted in customizations. The analytics dashboard is sorely lack and needs a complete overhaul. Very little access to editing user profiles on the backend. Not great for content organization with lack of content tags or a knowledgebase template to organize FAQs or content libraries.

Circle for community building

Reviewed 3 months ago

I'd recommend circle for a professional community where you are looking to post and engage in more evergreen content.

Pros

I like how you can insert course content and have a clean look and feel to the community. Good onboarding and great summary emails.

Cons

It gets expensive quickly if you need all the features, and it's not as specialised when it comes to quick communication ie instant messaging. Events from an attendee side can be difficult to navigate to

SO grateful to have found Circle!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Best customer service and quality product (hard to find these days)

Pros

The ease of use, features to run and scale my business, sales process, support, and customization.

Cons

This is the best platform and had pretty much everything on my list AND for such an affordable price! Their staff are great and the product is quality compared to what else is out there. I would love phone support but other than that it's great and they continue to add features I need. Their roadmap and pipeline for new features already has whatever I would have considered "missing" on my wish list.

The Journey With Circle

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

It’s refreshing to have a space in which we can build engaging communities while we actively live into the purpose of adding value to those we connect with and serve. That there isn’t the toxic environment found on other platforms makes it a joy to be here. We look forward to all the ways we’ll be able to do our work as Circle continues to grow in the tools offered to community builders/curators.

Cons

I personally need to spend more time on the platform as we grow - and don’t yet have a least liked thing about it.

Must have for online community builders

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, I feel that Circle is a bargain. What you get for the price you pay is unmatched for this type of software.

Pros

I love how beautiful the UI is for the this software. The UX is also intuitive and constantly be improved upon every year.

Cons

I feel like they could work on have direct integrations with other software rather than having to use third-party glue platforms like Zapier or Make.
