The Public Community is a community platform that
helps brands grow customer relationships and monetize user-generated content. For a fixed monthly
subscription, we provide you with a customizable, branded community where your audience can connect,
get answers, and discuss shared interests.
You can also monetize your community by displaying promotional content like advertisements, subscription forms, affiliated products, and your own branded content. We provide you with the flexibility to earn money on your own terms in ways that make sense for you, your community, and your content.
The Public Community offers a WordPress plugin that makes your comment section
part of your online community. As a result, your comment section becomes a social hub where your
readers can connect, engage around a shared passion, and become loyal community members. Learn more
