Kajabi vs. ConvertKit [Video]

Jeremy Saenz compares Kajabi and ConvertKit in this #KajabivsConvertKit review video.Read the blog post: https://kajabi.com/blog/kajabi-vs-convertkit-reviewGet your free trial of Kajabi and exclusive bonus training materials by signing up through this link: https://get.kajabi.com/yt/get-startedKajabi and ConvertKit do integrate, so if you love both, you can have them. But, we think you just need Kajabi to run your online business. We’re a solid #ConvertKit alternative for most use cases. If you’re looking for an all-in-one business platform to sell information products, Kajabi is definitely the tool to use.Kajabi was created and designed for people selling information products. You can create and sell video and audio online courses, membership sites, digital downloads, public or private podcasts, and coaching programs. Kajabi provides product hosting and product blueprints that make it easy to get started. You can generate the framework for your offering. Plus, Kajabi provides a fully fledged website builder tool, email marketing, affiliate program management, and automations that streamline your work flows.With Kajabi websites, you get more than the Convertkit landing page builder. You have the resources to build your entire website. Your fully fledged website can include a home page, a blog, a podcast, as well as product pages and landing pages, with built in site navigation and structure. Kajabi makes it easy to produce your whole website with lots of beautiful themes that are designed with top industries in mind.Plus, you have complete freedom to adapt these pages, so they have the unique look and feel of your brand. Adjust the colors, fonts, and images until they look exactly the way you want across every device. On the Pro plan, you can access the code editor and customize it even further.Kajabi allows you to send one off email broadcasts or sequences as well, but with our tool, you can use the visual templates for both types of emails. In our email marketing tool, we offer an intuitive visual editor and templated email campaigns that come with more font and style customization options. You can also create segments off of filters using our custom fields or email subscriber engagement. And, we include email subject line validation to help your emails perform better. Our email marketing program also includes some email automation, which is perfect for drip campaigns. We think Kajabi’s email marketing software has some more advantages than the ConvertKit email marketing tool.But, if you’re looking to offer online courses, membership sites, or a coaching program, Kajabi has additional resources that can save you time setting up your products for sale. We include product templates, called Blueprints, that take care of the layout of your course or coaching program so you can focus on the content. Plus, products on Kajabi easily match the branding of your whole website since everything is in one place. Both platforms provide analytics to track sales and earnings. So, choosing between Kajabi and ConvertKit will require you to think about more than just the types of products you sell now. If you have 45,000 or more subscribers, Kajabi automatically becomes less expensive. If you have under 45,000 subscribers, determining which option is a better value will depend on your needs. Kajabi includes a lot of tools in the all-in-one software that you won’t get with ConvertKit. Plus, if you intend on growing your email subscriber list, starting with the software you would migrate to later on can save you lots of time.Plus, Kajabi integrates with Stripe and PayPal to process payments. Stripe charges 2.9% + $0.30 as a processing fee, so that lower payment processing fee could put a noticeable amount of money back in your pocket depending on how much you sell.Check out Kajabi’s free ebook resources here: https://kajabi.com/resources Follow us on our other platforms! 🎉Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kajabi/Twitter: https://twitter.com/KajabiFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/kajabi/Website: www.kajabi.com/Blog: www.kajabi.com/blogThanks for watching!
