Both Teachable and Kajabi are much higher priced. I feel like the look of Teachable is no better than MemberVault, and so I wouldn't want to pay more for that platform. Kajabi is much more aesthetically pleasing in how it looks and all you can do, but the price is at least 3-4 …

Kajabi
I wouldn't recommend Kajabi for someone that's starting to figure out what their product is going to be and who is the target audience. While one could argue the starting price point isn't high compared to having a brick and mortar store, it's also not practical pay between $100-$200 a month while the business figures out their offer. Kajabi is better suited for someone who has already tested their product, specifically courses, and can start selling it relatively soon after launching their Kajabi site. While Kajabi has come out with a coaching and community products, those are still in their infancy. The strength of Kajabi is in their course content delivery supported by the ability to have a simple website and email marketing system in the same platform.

I recommend it for those who are maybe 1-2 employees in their business--in other words, people just starting online with their business. It's priced right, so you can still make money with few sales. Plus, the ongoing support really helps you understand how to navigate the platform. It probably wouldn't be as great for someone who has thousands of people taking a course or someone who can afford a platform like Kajabi, where you can have everything right there. Because it doesn't host everything you need, it is for the frugally minded or smaller clientele biz owner.

Pros
Kajabi
  • With a featured button as opposed to just a hyperlink, it is incredibly simple to link to a page within an email.
  • The marketing strategy's functionality and the ability to customize emails allow me to communicate with every client.
  • Course creator to create digital products from your content.

Cons
Kajabi
  • The inbuilt themes are excellent but sometimes a small change is required to improve it - that then requires a code change which must then be reapplied if Kajabi issue an upgrade.
  • Once you get the "hang" of it, Kajabi is a very powerful platform. But it does take an investment of time. Kajabi also has a best-practice way of doing things and I feel that it is worth paying for skilled support to get through the setup quickly.

  • I do wish you could host video right on the platform. You can't now but have to use other video sites.
  • I wish you could tailor the domain to reflect back to a page on your website.
  • I like the marketplace page but wish you could design it a little bit differently.
  • It's hard for people to cancel a subscription on their own.

We are committed to it and once we get "really good" at using it, I think it is a excellent platform and links well to Hubspot. At present, we are still just barely scratching the surface with our use of its features

Usability
Kajabi
Kajabi is very usable. But it is complex and if you haven't used it for a few weeks you have to remind yourself how to do things. It is very important to treat it like any major system and be very disciplined about how you file things and name documents

The Kajabi Support people are helpful, fast and knowledgeable. I usually call in a panic - because I have lost something, messed something or am on a deadline. Sometimes we speak, or we do a chat. Always my angst is eliminated. I often thank the person for being "so patient" with me. LOL

These platforms are big complex pieces of software. Mor recently - Kajabi provides a done for you example which you can borrow and customise - but those were not available when we started.

ClickFunnels is a great tool for funnel automation, landing pages, and lead generation but when it comes to product delivery for content creators it lacks functionality as it reality it was not meant for that purpose. Originally, we used ClickFunnels for our funnels but we found out that we could do exactly the same with Kajabi, so we migrated all of our funnels to Kajabi

Both Teachable and Kajabi are much higher priced. I feel like the look of Teachable is no better than MemberVault, and so I wouldn't want to pay more for that platform. Kajabi is much more aesthetically pleasing in how it looks and all you can do, but the price is at least 3-4 times more per month. I also wanted a platform that would let me have few people, and they let me start on a free plan initially. The others did not.

Return on Investment
Kajabi
  • When we used Kajabi to launch new programs we achieved the ROI of our monthly investment each time.
  • With Kajabi, the ability to offer old programs that have been offered in the past is easy to present to one-off customers or when not in a launch series.

  • Since starting with MemberVault 4 years ago, I went from 0 customers to 850 clients, with about 220 paying customers.
  • I've grown my mailing list by about 1000 by using this platform.
  • I wish they worked with all email providers because I have to pay more for Zapier. This hurts my sales profit.
  • Their plan to grandfather us into the price we originally paid helps me save money each year as I add more products.
