Guild is purpose-built for professional communities, making it the perfect platform for sharing knowledge and connecting with peers.

Comparing Guild and Mighty Networks

Mighty Networks ‘brings together your community, online courses, sales pages, and more in one place under your brand, available on every platform’, making it a good choice for “creators” and brands who want to connect with a B2C audience. Mighty Networks is a broad ‘all in one’ web platform with many features, with online courses being one of its standout features.

Like Guild, it's free to join and look around, and for smaller communities that don’t require access to advanced features, it’s affordable.

Mighty Networks is good choice for “creators” and brands targeting B2C audiences

Guild is a simple to use platform available on web and mobile, which was designed for professional groups, networks and communities to connect, communicate and collaborate. This makes it a popular choice for B2B organisations, membership organisations, professional services, and B2B media businesses, as well as providing a safe and secure networking space for professionals.

Guild is free to join and host smaller communities, providing access to discoverable profiles and groups, making it easy to make connections, or grow a community. Mighty Networks has no underlying social network and all groups are separate and distinct, whereas community creators on Guild can tap into the whole Guild member base.

Guild can be used for one-to-one private messaging as well as for online communities

As well as groups, Guild can be used by individuals for one-to-one private messaging, typically as a business-focused and more private alternative to consumer messaging apps like WhatsApp.

Guild members can also build their own personal networks - similar to LinkedIn except higher quality and with no ads or noise. As a member you can have your profile private and hidden or make it discoverable so have your own web page and can be found by others in Guild. Once members connect they can direct message each other. You can also send broadcast direct messages to all your network connections at once, something not possible in LinkedIn. Mighty Networks does not allow members to connect outside of groups.

Guild paid plans include analytics, integration with other apps and platforms via Zapier/API, and marketing support to help attract and retain community members.
