GrooveFunnels – The benefits and downfalls in 2021

If you’re here, then you want to get more information about the GrooveFunnels system. It has become an increasingly popular system and so there is so much that you will need to know about it.

In this article, I will be discussing everything that is great with the software and which areas are not so great. I have purchased this software some time back and have been using it since then. Therefore, I have some experience using this software over the past year.

This gives me a fresh perspective into how the software has changed for the better since it first launched in 2019. There is a lot to love about the software as you will find out in the article below. If you want to know more, then continue reading until the end so that you can make the most informed decision you can when purchasing.

Of course, please keep in mind that you are getting these points from my point of view as an online entrepreneur. After being in the market for a while, some of what I say may be different for newbies or those who are not familiar with the online market. What I consider cheap may be quite expensive for those who are starting out, some of my pros may not be pros in your book, and so on. 

I will note down all the facts and what I think about each feature, but please read it with your own insight as well and then decide on whether the software is for you. My word alone should not decide if you should get this software or not. Without further ado, let’s continue. 

A Brief Summary

GrooveFunnels is a full digital marketing software that was initially launched as a website building tool in 2019 called GroovePages. After the launch, the tool started gaining popularity over its ease of use. Therefore, the team at GrooveDigital decided to complete the rest of the tools that complement each other to create a platform that can handle everything about your online business and its marketing efforts.

This software is not coming from the backs of some unknown team of people as well. The creator is one of the ex-founders of another highly popular software called Kartra. Therefore, we can be assured that there is knowledge and experience behind the creation of this software and that you will not be getting faulty or untrustworthy software.

Since 2019, GrooveFunnels has only become more popular and right now they are on track to becoming one of the top digital marketing tools for the year 2023. That should give you some idea about what people who use the software think about it. 

What are the benefits?

1. All the tools and features you can ask for.

GrooveFunnels is an all-in-one digital marketing tool. They have almost all the tools that you will need to start running your business online. If you visit their website, you can see a list of 17 tools that they are essentially replacing and bringing under one software for you to use. That would mean that you are paying for only one tool, whereas to get the same functionality you would have to pay separately for all 17 of those other tools. 

Sure, there are other tools out there that have similar functionality to GrooveFunnels such as Builderall and Kartra. However, after doing some research I noticed that they don’t have nearly the same amount of value for the price you are paying, and their websites don’t come out as great as on GrooveFunnels. Your pages will look more modern and load way faster than a website on one of those two software.

There are certain functions that you can find on software like Builderall but not GrooveFunnels such as an automated chatbot. However, if you know how to code or can hire someone who does, then you are able to write your own code inside of GrooveFunnels to get this additional functionality. Or you can wait for a while longer because GrooveFunnels is in Beta right now and not all of their tools have been released or even talked about. They might bring these new features in the upcoming months.

Here are some of the tools that you will get through the software when you purchase it:

  • GroovePages – This is the landing page and website creation tool. They utilize a drag and drop method that is simple to use, even for freshers. This is their most celebrated tool and the one that they have put the most amount of time into.
  • GrooveMail – Every business needs to include email marketing in their strategies. This tool will act as your email autoresponder and you can do all your email campaigns through this tool without signing up for another service.
  • GrooveSell – For those who want to sell digital products online, then this tool is perfect for you. This gives you all the tools you will need to start selling online. You can add discounts, coupon codes, upsell, and even customize your whole checkout process.
  • GrooveMember – If you want to start a subscription-based business/tiered member site, then this tool will work wonders. You can set up recurring payments, gated content based on subscription, schedule monthly content, and so much more.
  • GrooveAffiliate – If you have ever wanted to create an affiliate program for your business then here is your chance to create one within a few minutes using this tool. You can manage all of your affiliates through the dashboard, set commission rates, deal with refunds, see how your affiliate’s analytics are doing, and so on.
  • GrooveVideo – Video plays an important part in online marketing these days as they get the most engagement. To use a video online, you will need a hosting site to host your video so that it can load fast when someone clicks on it. Rather than using an external hoster, you can use this tool to save all your videos so that you always have access to them.

These are just some of the arsenal of tools that GrooveFunnels offers you for their full package. If you get this software, you can have all of these under one roof and they all work well together which can really help to bring your whole marketing strategy together.

2. The use of modern coding and technology

When you use the GrooveFunnels software, you will notice something different when compared to other software. They have managed to compress their code well to make the whole thing work together in a way that is slick and fast loading.

Their overall dashboard looks really good and a quick browse through is enough for you to learn how to navigate through the site. Most websites tend to forget about functionality when they are creating a beautiful looking website, however, this is not the case with GrooveFunnels.

Because GroovePages is the tool that has received the most amount of work, you can see how amazing the tool actually is in terms of both design and functionality. When you compare it with other website building tools, you will see a massive difference between their layouts. This is also why a major system like Shopify has a GroovePages builder plugin for those who want to use this builder on that platform.

They even use an advanced JavaScript technology on the backend that has still not been adopted by other major players which would explain why their websites load so much faster than their competitors. For what you are paying for, you will really get your money’s worth even just from the look and feel of the software.

3. They offer a free account

In all my time researching and writing about software, I have seldom come across a website/software that gives as much value in their free account as GrooveFunnels. It is honestly mind-blowing how much they are giving away for free!

And by free, I don’t mean a free trial. GrooveFunnels does not have any trial features right now. All you need to do is to create an account by giving some of your details and voila, you will have access to everything they are offering. You don’t even need to enter any of your credit card details so you don’t have to worry about payments going through accidentally. 

This is what you receive with a free account:

  • A free SSL certificate for your website
  • Custom domain integrations for 3 websites onto their fast amazon servers
  • GroovePages Lite – Access to GroovePages without most of their premium templates
  • GrooveSell – Full access to sell your digital products
  • GrooveAffiliate – Create an affiliate program or become an affiliate for another business for free

Just think about how much value you are getting here. Essentially, you will get free security and fast hosting for not just one but three of your websites! And this is all done for free! You get so much value before you make a single payment to the team at GrooveFunnels. Have you ever seen another software that does the same thing?

4. Big plans in the coming years

As I mentioned, GrooveFunnels is on its way to become the leading software by the year 2023. And this is because of how much they have put out so far as well as the added functionality they are bringing in the upcoming months. 

Most software services out there tend to start off great and once the creators have made a decent profit, they will sell the software out to another company. This will usually halt the progression of that software and render it useless over time. However, this is not the case with GrooveFunnels because they have already started laying out plans for many years to come.

They plan on introducing so many new tools to the software and based on the work they have done so far, they will constantly be updating it to the latest trends too. This is evident in the way Kartra is run as well. They have been around for a long time, have so many customers, and are always being updated. Since this is technically the same team behind GrooveFunnels, you can expect more of the same.

What are their downfalls?

1. Their customer support hasn’t been great

There have been reports in the beginning when people try to contact GrooveFunnels, they are not able to get through to them or get a speedy response. However, you should note that the reason this happened is because they were not expecting their software to become this popular. They were dealing with many thousand support tickets in the span of a few hours and so they were finding it difficult to keep up. However, I haven’t had a problem with them since they probably hired new employees to cover the helpdesk.

2. The overall pricing

When you look at their pricing at first glance, it will look really expensive. They are currently charging:

Basic – $99 per month

Silver – $199 per month

Platinum – $299 per month

Lifetime deal – $1897 in total

Platinum is the only package that will give you full access to all their tools and all upcoming tools as well. Therefore, their pricing seems a bit steep when you don’t look deeper into it.

However, if you were to take into account all the tools and features you would get, and then try to get those tools outside of GrooveFunnels, you would see that it would cost you way more to get each of those tools individually. 

According to their website, it would cost you a total of over $17,000/year to use the best tools out there for each of these features. Whereas, if you were to take their lifetime deal, you would get them all for $1897 in one payment. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me.

3. Not all the tools are finished yet

As of right now, GrooveFunnels is still in beta meaning they are still testing and haven’t released all of their tools yet. Some of the tools that aren’t released are GrooveWebinar, GrooveSurvey, and GrooveDesk..

It can be a bit difficult to pay for a software that isn’t fully complete yet. However, you have to keep in mind the success of what they currently have and the reputation they have behind them. This is not some third-rate software built by an unknown company. Therefore, you will know that you are not being cheated out of your money.

4. Can be tough to use at first

For newbies, some of these tools can be a bit advanced to use. However with some time on them, just like any other software, you should be able to get a good grasp on using it.

In Conclusion

That brings me to the end of my article. I hope you were able to get some useful information out of the above and that you are now able to make an informed decision. 

For me personally, I love using this software because I have used many other similar ones before and for now, GrooveFunnels has worked out the best for me. If you are still hesitant about paying for this software, just try out their free account for a while until you are acclimated with the software. Based on experience, I am telling you that you will find how simple and comprehensive the whole software is!
