A Free Alternative to Grouply

*Updates on 27th April 2012 to reflect GroupSpaces’ new pricing plans.
In light of the recent shut down of Grouply, we realize that many group managers have been left looking for a suitable alternative! If you were a Grouply user looking for a replacement, we think we have the perfect solution.

In response to all your enquiries, we’d like to say hello, welcome and tell you more about how GroupSpaces can be used for running your group with a quick guide to using our site; we truly believe GroupSpaces is the best alternative to Grouply and will solve all your problems!

We’re Free
Firstly, GroupSpaces is entirely free for groups with fewer than 50 members, and there’s no obligation to pay at any time unless you add more than 50 members, or would like to use some of our premium features. Even then, pricing starts at just $3.99 a month should you be willing to pay in advance up front!

Easy-to-use Group Management Tools

GroupSpaces helps you take all your group-management tasks online into one easy-to-use set of tools.

You can use GroupSpaces to:
• run your own free customizable website or integrate features with an existing website
• run a professional group mailing list with targeted lists and easy handling of subscriptions and bounces
• manage a membership database online, keeping everything together and updated
• organize and promote events – sending invites, collecting RSVPs and selling tickets
• take payments for different types of membership fees and set up an online shop
The best place to get started would be to create a group and play around with our different features to see what works best for you. We also have a tour of our features  and a support section to answer more specific questions.

Especially for Group Managers
While many other sites focus primarily on the users, GroupSpaces was built with the managers and organizers of groups in mind to provide a set of easy to use, comprehensive tools to manage your members, events and site all from one place. This is our speciality. If it sounds like something for you, then I hope you’ll check us out. If you already have your membership database exported and want to migrate from Grouply to GroupSpaces, it is extremely easy to get started right away and import your database to GroupSpaces.

Get in touch!
Thank you to everyone for the interest and messages we have received, please feel free to get in touch with us at helpdesk@groupspaces.com if you need any other help, information or to give us feedback.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
