GrooveFunnels Review: Is This The Last Marketing Funnel Tool You'll Ever Need?

When I first came across GrooveFunnels, I have to admit I was kind of confused what “Groove” was all about. I mean there was GroovePages, GrooveSell, GrooveFunnels, GrooveKart and so fourth, there were just so many things in it. It sounded interesting enough, so I signed up for GrooveFunnels myself (it’s free to signup anyway). It took me a few days to explore the whole thing before I could  write this full GrooveFunnels review. AllI can say, it’s pretty massive… So let’s dive into it!

Quick links the topic:

What Is GrooveFunnels?

GrooveFunnels is a comprehensive all-in-one digital marketing platform which includes a suite of software applications, that can handle various different digital marketing task. Right now, most entrepreneurs and digital marketers uses many separate applications to run their businesses. This often times makes things very difficult to organise, and plus when you combine all the apps together, it becomes very costly too.

The GrooveFunnels applications know as “GrooveApps“, consisting of different digital tools are integrated together into the platform – from salespage builder, funnel builder, blog site, payment system, autoresponder, video hosting, webinar tool and the list goes on… These tools work really well and complements each other, but at the same time is still able to perform independently. This certainly gives you a lot more flexibility when using the app.

It’s also important to note that GrooveFunnels was created by Groove Digital Inc, co-founded by Mike Filsaime (who also co-founded Kartra – a somewhat similar software brand already well known in the market for years. He is also the creator for WebinaJam and EverWebinar). As GrooveFunnels is a new release, I do believe that they will include more integration and advance function to compete with other software around. And with Mike Filsaime’s background in similar industry, I feel more confident that GrooveFunnels will be able to provide just the right tools that all marketers need. And this is what makes GrooveFunnels very exciting indeed!

What Is Included In GrooveFunnels?

As I mentioned earlier, it took me a couple of days to go through the whole GrooveFunnel suite, not just because I was learning how to create the sales pages and funnel, but also because I wanted to know about all other tools they offer and of course it’s functions.

Here’s a list of the GrooveFunnels suite that I gathered. Please note that while some tools are already up and running, some will only be released in mid of 2020, end 2020 & early 2021. (You can click on each tool name below to see individual details directly)

I did say the list was long… But hey, like they say – the more the merrier! Now, let me explain each tool in details further…

How Does GrooveFunnels Compare With Other Tools?

Now that we know that GrooveFunnel integrates so many tools into their system, so firstly it might be difficult to find another software company that integrates the same tools like them. You can use GrooveFunnels (GroovePages tool) to create ‘simple drag and drop’ websites or pages like with Wix. That works just fine. But you can also do so much more with all the advanced features, like funnel building. So we really need to look at competitors like ClickFunnels, Kartra or Builderall for comparison, where they all have similar functions and have been in the market for many years. These companies also have thousands of paid customers using their software for a very long time. While they each have their own ‘pros and cons’, and they don’t all integrate the same tools, software companies like these has been the backbone of many marketers successful funnel campaign launch in the past.

So what makes GrooveFunnels so great? Well, like I said before, GrooveFunnels integrates a lot of features into their system which will work together well. For example, you can link GrooveSell and GrooveMail to capture your customer’s details. If you’re using other software tool, you probably need to subscribe to another software company to capture your customers emails or run your email marketing campaign. This is how GrooveFunnels offers you convenience. 

And then of course there’s the huge price difference, especially when you need to combine multiple apps or tools to run a full marketing funnel or campaign for your business. Do take note that that there is an option to get the whole GrooveFunnel suite Lifetime Access at a huge discounted fee right now. After which (in July 2020 probably),  the lifetime fee won’t be available anymore and you could only get on the monthly payment plan. Although the monthly payment plan is still going to be cheaper when combining the separate apps together, the lifetime deal will surely save you a lot of money in the long run. To make it clearer, here’s an idea of what GrooveFunnels savings will be like in comparison with other software. 

The comparison above is based on the ‘Basic’ monthly plan of what the software companies above charges (extracted from their website at the time I’m writing this). Their advanced / upgraded plan usually can run up to a few hundred more a month.

Is GrooveFunnels Free?

No. The whole GrooveFunnel suite is not free. But what you can free by signing up for the Lifetime Access is 3 tools that’s included in the software – GroovePages Lite, GrooveSell and GrooveAffiliate. And ‘You truly can’t beat the Free For Life offer’… It’s not a free for 14 days, or 30 days offer, it’s for life. I’m not sure how long this free offer will be made available, but you could be very well just get one page running and start making money from it from now, basically for free. No credit is required for the signup too.

And the best part is, you get to keep it forever. You don’t ever have to worry about losing the pages you’ve created just because ‘your trial’ period has ended!

GrooveFunnels Pricing

GrooveFunnels will cost (once launched):

  • Silver Plan – $99 per month
  • Gold Plan – $199 per month
  • Platinum Plan – $299 per month

Lifetime Access Option

However, you can get Lifetime Access to the whole GrooveFunnels suites if you join during the beta program (before launch). With the Lifetime Access, you’ll get the all the tools mentioned earlier and all future updates too. So you won’t ever need to pay for anything extra in the future.

There are 4 payment options available  you can choose from:

  • $0 Today, then just 3 easy monthly payments of $497 starting in 14 days.
  • Or just 6 easy monthly payments of $288 starting today.
  • Or just 12 easy monthly payments of $188 starting today.
  • Or just pay in full at $1397 for Lifetime access and save up to 35%

Other “Groove” Tools

There are also other products under Groove Digital Inc, that’s separated from GrooveFunnels, but still worth mentioning. I thought I’d list them down for your here.

GroovePay
  • GroovePay helps you to create merchant accounts to help you protect your Paypal and Stripe accounts.
  • They offer very competitive rates.

GrooveFunnels Partner Program

GroveFunnels has it’s own partner program. Honestly speaking, I’ve never seen a partner program quite like this before. Here’s why:

  • First of all, you can earn commissions even if you just sign up for the free account.
  • Secondly, you get paid on 2 tiers (means you get paid for your direct referrer, and his/her referrer too)
  • Third, is once you refer a person, the person gets locked to you for life. So whenever this person decides to upgrade their account (be it 1 week, 1 month or even 1 year), you’ll still get commissions for it. With these kind of software, chances of up upgrading is normally pretty high.

So you can get started right away even if you sign up for the free account. Yes, that’s right! You can earn commissions even as a free member. The only difference is that if you are a paid member yourself, you’re entitled to a higher commission payout. Here’s what the payout will be like:

  • GrooveFunnels free member – gets 20% of sales on 1st tier, and 5% on 2nd tier
  • GrooveFunnels paid member – gets 40% of sales on 1st tier, and 1% on 2nd tier

Conclusion

GrooveFunnels is just the kind of tool that a marketer needs to run a successful business and marketing funnel campaigns. It offers really advanced features, at a much lower price than any other software in the market. Who doesn’t love savings right!

But that’s not all, members of GrooveFunnels are also given a chance to earn some extra income through the GrooveFunnels Partner Program. They’ve made it very easy too, because once you joined as a free member, you are automatically enrolled into the partner program and you can start promoting it straight away.

So being a marketer myself, and after going through the whole system, I really have to say – ‘GrooveFunnels… It’s Groovy Baby!’
