Being in the eCommerce business is probably one of the most efficient and smartest passive income strategies people have gotten into.
It’s probably because of the fact that you don’t need to create your own product to start selling and possibly earn- you just have to market other people’s.
Sounds easy peasy, no? You’d just have to promote other people’s business and then voila! You now have an income— a fruit of your labor.
But… in order to have a successful online business, one should have a revenue-generating “machine” called “sales funnel“.
Before we finally hit the road (review, duh), let’s let you in on some info…
OK, What is a Sales Funnel?
Sales funnel is a marketing model figuratively shaped like a “funnel“.
In simpler words, sales funnel happens to be a step-by-step process into making your potential customer into your actual “consumer“.
This is a marketing strategy to help you prepare this customer to purchase your goods by funneling them through five (5) stages.
Whatever you decide to sell, from the cheapest to the most expensive product, you need sales funnel to work everything out with your business. YOU NEED IT.
Sounds light, but it really isn’t.

Moving on… what do sales funnel got to do with today’s review?
Well… we will be going to let you in on another not-so-surprise program that you might find interesting if you plan to be an online/digital marketer. ‘Zat good?
Ready or not, here we go. 😉

What’s Inside the Program?
Now, be ready, as we have actually registered to the GrooveFunnels to walk you around the platform.
A few lines ago, we’ve mentioned GrooveFunnels and listed some of its components that the users will get to experience once they finally get the program.
Once you become an official member, this is what you see as the Welcome page:
And here are the steps you need to do to be “officially logged in“:
Here is the Facebook group community you need to join:
Then… once you’re in, this is what the dashboard looks like:
As you can see there, GroovePages, GrooveSell, and others are all under GrooveFunnels.
I hope we’re clear on that one since a handful of people think that GroovePages and GrooveFunnels are the same. Nah-uh.
GrooveFunnels‘ complete list of components:
This is what it looks like when you click on “GroovePages” under GrooveFunnels. You will be redirected to a page where you have a chance to create a new site(s).
You can also make use of four (4) free site templates included in your FREE plan. Up to you if you want to upgrade to use the rest of the templates.
This is where you will be redirected when you click on “GrooveSell”. It’s a page for vendors/sellers.
And this is how it looks like inside the “GrooveAffiliate” page.
Now, the rest of the services are still upcoming so we couldn’t show you how they look exactly inside.
- GroovePages for Shopify
- Affiliate Marketplace
- Groove Marketplace
- Multi-Vendor MarketPlace
- API Docs
- App Developers
But keep in mind that you will not instantly have access to those we’ve listed above since there are plans for members you might need to reconsider (and purchase to fully make use of all the services).
OK, but how about the price?
Now, this one is a little tricky. We’ve literally signed up, and we got to explore the platform for FREE! So, it was not a rumor, after all, no?
They didn’t even ask for bank details and we were kind of shook! They really are not after our money, is that it?
There are 3 membership plans available in the GrooveFunnels. What we currently have as a member is a “lite”/Base plan or a FREE plan.
These plans are:
- Base Plan (FREE)– a plan available for everyone (the one we currently have by just signing up). Things members get for a Base (FREE) Plan:
- GroovePages LITE
- Affiliate Program (20%)
- Silver Plan ($99/month)– this plan has the core apps needed for a startup online business. This, we think, is the most beneficial for the newbies of all the plans. They will get apps like:
- GroovePages PRO
- Email Leads
- Email Cart Abandons
- Email Buyers
- Email Affiliates
- Gold Plan ($199/month)– a plan for professionals as it has all the core apps needed to run their online business. Things members will get are:
- GroovePages PRO
- Email Leads
- Email Cart Abandons
- Email Buyers
- Email Affiliates
Yes, overwhelming, we get it but wait for a more tempting offer made by the developers themselves…
They offer a LIFETIME PLAN option or what they also call a “PLATINUM” plan. This plan includes almost everything the whole platform offers. You will get to actually enjoy the GrooveFunnels, but it’s solely up to you at this point.
For you to not get lost and/or our words to not get twisted, we will provide you with the screenshots of the actual PLATINUM offer and pricing plan from the upgrade sales page (GrooveSell):
Phew! Too many words, too many numbers! Overwhelming indeed! But we’re kind of enjoying providing you with vital details you need to know about this program! I hope you’re having fun reading our review, too!
Well, can we now move on to the faces behind Groove Digital?

Here’s the rest of the team that helped them execute the plan perfectly:
Moving on… oftentimes, users tend to compare GrooveFunnels to its competitors like the ClickFunnels, and to be honest, ClickFunnels is got to be one of the biggest competitors in the industry.
What’s The Difference Between GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels?
ClickFunnels is a website and sales funnel builder designed for entrepreneurs. It’s simply just like the GrooveFunnels, but to help you decide which one you should be a member of, we will show you just a teeny-tiny comparison of these bad boys.
As you can see, we’ve registered to the ClickFunnels to see what the fuss is all about…
Unlike GrooveFunnels, ClickFunnels here requires us to input our credit card deets, we’re guessing is for future payment and/or upsell purposes… Hmm, is that a red flag already?
As to GrooveFunnels, they were very welcoming and they wouldn’t even force you to input your bank details and the plan was clearly NOT to rip you off in the long run.
Here is a look at what ClickFunnel’s pricing looks like:
Well, should we keep going? We’re pretty positive we’ve seen enough.
Just kidding! We suggest that you really need to keep digging to find out what program and/or system really is for your liking. We’re glad if we somehow of big help, but if not, then awwww. 🙁
Should we now continue with the things we like and dislike about GrooveFunnels?
Pros and Cons!!!
- Easy to navigate
- Signing up is FREE (REALLY)
- Pages load pretty fast
- For sellers and affiliates
- Friendly (and LARGE) community
- All-in-one marketing suite
- No upsells
- It can be a bit overwhelming for the beginners
- Requires learning curve
- It’s still in BETA, so users can expect little bugs here and there
Is it a Scam, though?
No, it isn’t!
As you’ve seen earlier, signing up for a FREE account is really easy even 8-year-olds can do it!
Apart from that, they weren’t bluffing when they said on the sales page that you can actually be a member for free, like literally FREE. They wouldn’t ask you for your card details and it’s all up to you if you want to purchase while inside.
Whatever you’ve read on other reviews, we still believe that GrooveFunnels let alone Groove Digital is not a scam. They have real people behind who’re working hard to give us the best service there is.
We think that the reason why they give us a free pass is because of skepticism from people, which is fully understandable because paying for something you don’t know if actually works is kind of sucks.
It’s a Wrap!
It has been such a great pleasure doing this review for you, guys.
