How monetising your community affects your members.

Getting to grips with exactly how you want to monetise your community can be difficult. To get inspired, check out each commercial model we offer at Disciple and how they affect your members journey below:

Scenario 1

  • Subscription payment for access to the whole app.

Combination of scenario 1 & 3

  • Subscription payment for the whole app with additional in-app purchases.

Scenario 2

  • Subscription payment for one/multiple sections of the app with the remaining sections free.

Scenario 3

  • In-app purchases of one/multiple files within the folders.

Scenario 1: Subscription payment for the whole app.

After downloading the app from either the Apple or Google Play store, members are prompted to sign up. After customising their username and adding an avatar, they’re shown a one-pager about the main app features. This gives members an insight into what exclusive content they’ll be paying to see. Clicking "continue" will expose the subscription paywall:

As the host you decide the fees (pricing must be chosen from the list here) and subscription lengths (monthly or yearly).

After selecting their preferred subscription, members are prompted to pay via Apple or Google pay (depending on the device they’re using). Once paid, members will have full access to the app.

Scenario 2: Subscription payment for one/multiple sections of the app.

Once login is complete, members are free to browse the app where they'll come across premium pieces of content (this can be one or multiple sections of the app). Upon clicking a piece of premium content members are firstly presented with a subscription warning:
