Pricing built with your community in mind.

We know that communities are valuable even when they don't have a budget, so we made communities free by default.

When you're ready to take your community to the next level, we've got some great features to help you grow, moderate, and measure more effectively.

Basic communities are free.

We won't show you ads. We won't sell your personal data. No gimmicks.

    Private channel

All paid features come with our Fair Price Promise

We will only charge you for the products you use in a billing cycle. If you don't use a feature for a whole month, we'll prorate it for the time you used it. No questions asked.

Want to use a private channel for a two-day project? Archive it when you're done and we'll only bill you for the two days.


Introducing Concierge

As a team, we’ve spent years building online communities and we’ve seen how valuable they can be to businesses when managed well. But that’s a full-time job, and a lot of businesses don’t have the access or the budget to hire experienced, full-time community managers.

There are a lot of hard problems to solve when you’re starting a community from scratch, but now you don’t have to face these problems alone.

Let Spectrum handle the hard parts.

Concierge makes the most painful elements of community management easy:


    Formulating a community strategy


    Launching or migrating your community


    Developing a content pipeline


    Understanding your community's impact


    Managing time efficiently


Do you run a community that gives back?

If you're looking for a place to grow your community for an open-source project, non-profit, or educational program, we're here to help.

Qualifying communities get one additional moderator seat and one private channel for free.



How does the Fair Price Promise work?

Each month we only bill you for the features that you used in that time period, and prorate any features used for less than a month.

Here’s a quick example:

Imagine you need a private channel for an event planning team within your community. When you create the private channel, Spectrum bills you $10. If your private channel is still being used at the end of the month, we’ll automatically keep the subscription going.

However, if you archive the channel after one week, we’ll automatically apply credit to your account for the unused time.

How will this be reflected on my credit card statement?

Spectrum calculates usage at the end of each billing cycle, and then prorates back any credit for unused features. You may receive lower-than-expected charges on your card that reflect credit being used.

Will I know when I’ve received a proration for unused time?

Yes. At the end of each billing cycle we will send you a receipt email that will include line items for all charges, prorations, and credit used.

I would like to talk with the team about how this works.

If you have any questions about this, or feel you’ve found an error in how much you were charged, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
