Considered Both Products
Kajabi
Chose Kajabi
When researching where to host my online course, I looked at several online course platforms: Teachable, Thinkific, Udemy, Wishlist Member, and Ally Access. I chose Kajabi because it was the easiest platform to customize and it was the most user-friendly for my clients. Also, …
Chose Kajabi
While other platforms may be better for certificates and social learning groups, Kajabi is the clear winner for building sales funnels, offers and providing excellent learning experience around video courses. Other platforms do a good job with more classroom style environments, …
Chose Kajabi
Kajabi is a cleaner, more integrated platform which is why I chose Kajabi for my business. With Kajabi, I can host my courses entirely, my checkout pages, and my landing pages. Kajabi is definitely more expensive than using any of these solutions alone, but since Kajabi …
Chose Kajabi
We chose Kajabi because it can do so much. We didn't end up going all-in on Kajabi - our email is still with ConvertKit and our site is still on WordPress, but we're very happy with having our checkouts, courses, and membership content on Kajabi. We create some of our landing …
Chose Kajabi
It blows them out of the water. There really is no comparison at all. Each of the others listed have some benefits, but none offering an end user experience the way that Kajabi does. HighLevel would be the closest, but they still have a ways to go.

Not offered in the listings …
Teachable
Chose Teachable
I evaluated Teachable against Thinkific and Kajabi when I started the business. I get regular pitches from new to market comeptitors. However the cost/effort of switching is not justified by the incremental features or better terms they offer. So, I have not recently …

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.

Teachable
Gets the job done and is easy to use. We've definitely made serious revenue with it, and it's worked well enough with our other systems to enable some handy automations. I'd say if you've got a course or courses you're looking to launch and they are fairly straightforward with up-front payments, Teachable can definitely get the job done. However, if you're running more of a membership model for access to your courses, Teachable by itself may not be the ideal solution, or you may want to use a different platform for the payments and just use Teachable for the actual courses.

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.

  • They FALSELY ADVERTISE their services.
  • They kicked us off their "unlimited" plan b/c we were using serving too many downloads?
  • They were terribly rude, cursing at us, threatening us, deleting our forum questions.
  • They have no unlimited plan and need to be sued in a court of law for their misleadings.

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

Because we haven't had any major issues with it. The platform is really simple to use and the content can be uploaded and modified very easily. It has a drag and drop feature that makes everything fast and easy. Their support has always answered our questions or concerns and the cost is affodable. We will keep using it in the future.

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

Teachable
Because it's easier to use both as administrators and both as user. We have never heard of any users having issues login in or going through the lectures or completing the course

Support Rating
Kajabi
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

Their support is good overal. There are a couple of things that I would change, like answering faster. Sometimes they take a day to answer a concern and that's kind of annoying considering sometimes there are urgent issues we have to deal with. But the support has been good, they have answered properly.

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.

I'd say: learn the system first, try it out and then publish the content with customers. There are a couple of features that will cause issues with customers (especially lazy ones) but I'd say it's easy to implement and modify if needed. People don't need to train much to use Teachable, but they should take their time to know it.

Alternatives Considered
Kajabi
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

Teachable
It's honestly just worked really well for us in terms of serving the actual course content. Plus, our customers can maintain one profile and use that to access all of the courses and bonuses that they've acquired from us. And the cost of Teachable has been very reasonable in terms of our budget.

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.
