Why look for a Beamer alternative?

Beamer gets really expensive really quickly. The changelog and notification start at $59/month and increases to $499/month. The feedback feature starts at $0 but then jumps to $119/month.

With ProductHQ, you can get all of this starting at just $12/month.


Why do product teams prefer ProductHQ over Beamer?

  • Beamer charges based on monthly visitors

    Beamer charges are based on monthly visitors. This can quickly add up if you have a lot of visitors.

  • Beamer says no whitelabel for you!!!

    You can’t remove the ‘Powered by Beamer’ branding from your feedback portal. Your site. Your choice, right? ProductHQ gives you that option.

  • Plans start at $59/mo and $119 per month

    The biggest downside to Beamer is that it has split the feedback, roadmap, and changelog features to be able to charge customers more. This makes things clunky and expensive.

  • Steep learning curve

    Beamer’s been around for a while, has lots of features and, therefore, an outdated design with a steep learning curve. ProductHQ’s simple, elegant, and beautiful easier to use and a more enjoyable experience.
