Is GrooveFunnels really free? And by that I mean…free free? As in 100% free?
With all the misinformation and all of the BS running rampant around the web…it’s no surprise people don’t know what to think. Especially when it comes to something as new and as awesome as GrooveFunnels.
In this short article, I’ll be showing you the difference between what is actually free inside of the GrooveFunnels platform, what is paid, and how to get either one of them, as well as which option is the best for you.
So Is GrooveFunnels Really Free?
The simple answer…
GrooveFunnels is not free.
GrooveFunnels will be a direct competitor to the already established company ClickFunnels, as well as the company Kartra (of which the CEO of GrooveFunnels, Mike Filsaime, used to be a CEO of).
Because of their success and rapid growth (and may I say…better, more modern AND cheaper software) they’ve been hurrying up their development, hiring coders, hiring staff, renting out offices and so on.
Because of this, there is pretty much no way the software could be 100% free.
I’m sure that makes sense…
With that said however, GrooveFunnels DOES offer a free “subset” of tools, that you can sign up to use, for free without having to even enter your credit card.
What Does GrooveFunnels Actually Offer For Free?
Most of these software as a service (SAAS) platforms, funnel builders, email marketing platforms, webinar builders, and the likes…
often offers some sort of free “trial”. The free 14 day trial, or 30 day trial are very common, actually.
You sometimes might get a “free account”, (in the case of some of the website builders) although you’ll not be able to add your own domain, which makes it pretty useless, because branding is out of the question.
You essentially get to try the software out, but you’re pretty limited to what you can do.
In other cases, you might have created your “free account”…at which point you’ll immediately be asked to add your credit card and sign up to a plan on the spot.
“What the heck? I thought it was free!”
You might have thought.
I know I have…
Because technically these softwares, do offer their tool for free…they just want to make sure you keep using the software after the trial expires (which a lot of people forget to cancel). Which is understandable, but also pretty sneaky,
GrooveFunnels, is not like that.
I like to quote someone who mentioned this in a GrooveFunnels affiliate webinar the other day, can’t remember the name:
GrooveFunnels is amazing. They’re sure as hell doing things very differently…
Heck yeah they are!
GrooveFunnels will not only give you their tools for free, but they’ll also not ask you for your credit card ever, unless you decide buy the product.
There is also another very important thing they give you on their free account, which I’ll be mentioning in a bit
So what does GrooveFunnels offer you for free?
For one, GrooveFunnels will give you access to 3 of their tools (at this point in time, I’ve heard rumors of them offering a free account to all their tools eventually).
These 3 tools are:
- GroovePages LITE: The flagship GrooveFunnels tool. This tool will allow you to create websites, and funnels…at the same time. So you’ll be able to create blogs, or product funnels.
The GroovePages pages look incredible. They load super fast, they’re mobile-indexing first compliant…they just look amazing all around. The image above, is made with GroovePages.
- GrooveSell: GrooveSell allows you to create your own digital product funnels and sell your own digital products online, using their checkout system.
You can easily set up a product funnel with upsells, downsells, discounts coupon codes and so on, within minutes
- GrooveAffiliate: This tool allows you to manage your own affiliates for your own products, allows you to see all of the stats, commissions, clicks, affiliates and so on.
And it also allows you to become an affiliate for any one of the high converting, high quality offers that will be available within the GrooveFunnels marketplace, without having to pay any fees.
These 3 tools, on their own, might not look like much.
And frankly, not a lot of people will find them very useful, particularly GrooveAffiliate and GrooveSell.
Even though with these three tools, you can theoretically create your own digital product funnel, with all the pages, all the checkout buttons, pricing structure, upsells, downsells, discounts, and affiliate program…
That’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
And GrooveFunnels knows that.
To change that, and to be even better than the competition, GrooveFunnels goes above and beyond what everyone else out there is doing and is offering, even more cool stuff.
For some crazy reason…GrooveFunnels decided to allow free hosting, for up to 3 custom domains.
This is crazy…and literally NO other company of this style out there is doing that.
❌ Squarespace doesn’t offer it.
❌ Leadpages doesn’t offer it.
❌ Wix doesn’t offer it.
❌ Builderall and Kartra don’t do it.
❌ ClickFunnels doesn’t do it
And I can go on and on and on…
Essentially, GrooveFunnels is allowing you to use their flagship tool GroovePages, WITHOUT you having to use a “.groovefunnels” subdomain (which you can also do if you want).
This means that, not only will you be able to use the software, but in theory, you don’t have to pay for hosting at all! (It also replaces over 26 tools, all by itself, by the way).
You can run your websites (which cost you around $12 per year or $1/month) solely off of the back of GrooveFunnels hosting (which oh by the way, use Amazon.com servers).
In addition to this, GrooveFunnels also gives you a free SSL certificate (which other companies are charging you for) so in a sense, you’re basically losing money if you’re NOT using GrooveFunnels.
What DOES GrooveFunnels Charges For?
So what does GrooveFunnels actually charge for?
Because up until this point, it’s been “too good to be true”. Right?
Well, just like other companies, if you want to use more tools,you’ll want to buy them.
Simple as that.
So even though you can do A LOT with the free plan (hosting 3 websites for free, making your hosting obsolete, while at the same time having super-fast loading, modern-looking websites…should be good enough)
If you want to be able to add unlimited custom domains to your hosting,
Or you want to be able to do email marketing,
Or you want to be able to create membership sites to deliver your products (which you can do through their integrated email platform),
Or you want to create webinars, create your own complete blogs, or ecom sites or handle support tickets, or schedule events or meetups, and much more…
Then of course, you’ll want to upgrade to the GrooveFunnels paid plans.
There are currently 3 different paid plans, which each offer a different set of tools. And I’ve covered it in this article here, but essentially you’re looking at either $99/month, $199/month or $299/month…which is already a LOT cheaper than what each of the tools you’ll be given, on each individual plan, will offer you.
To that would be the conclusion of this article. Is GrooveFunnels really free?
The answer is no, GrooveFunnels is not free.
With that said, it does offer a free base account which you can get here of by clicking on any one of the different buttons on this page.
This free account, is like nothing else out there because it will give you access to 3 of their tools, free hosting for up to 3 domains, a free SSL certificate…and they’ll never ask you for a credit card.
This is miles and miles ahead of what the other alternatives out there are offering, just for the free plan.
If you want to take it up a notch, you can sign up and actually buy the product, at which point you will be paying, but even then you’ll be getting a lot more for a lot less, compared to the alternatives out there.
