Kajabi vs Passion.io: The judgement criteria

  • check mark

    What features will you get?

    Kajabi is an online course platform that allows you to create and sell courses. There are many options for making your courses interesting, like uploading videos, audio, and other files without worrying about storage. You can also manage your students and courses and sell memberships in the same place. For payments facility, Kajabi lets you integrate Stripe and PayPal.

    Passion.io is a mobile learning app that allows you to sell digital content, mainly courses. With Passion.io, you can do live streaming and use its drip content feature to give out your content one by one instead of giving it all away at once. Moreover, you can build a forum-like community and upload audio-based content.

    What does it specialize in?

    Kajabi mainly focuses on building an online course platform and has only educational content. If you want a simple course platform where you can upload your courses instantly, then Kajabi is a pretty good platform. However, if you'd like to create a community in Kajabi, it only works like a Q&A forum. So, you might have to use another platform to create a community around your content which is a hassle for you and your members.

    Passion.io focuses on giving you a mobile learning platform. They specialize in building an educational app so that you can upload your courses and provide easy access to your students. However, a personalized mobile app can cost you a little too much. A Passion.io personalized mobile app isn't for someone who doesn't have a business or is just starting one. It has a high price tag.

    While Passion.io offers two plans you can choose from. The Ultimate and Pro plan. If you want to pay monthly, the Pro plan starts at $79/month, and the Ultimate plan starts at $239/month.

3 key differences that make Scenes the perfect Kajabi and Passion.io alternative

Finally, a platform to replace them all

If you think about teaching online as a serious business, you'll find yourself tying together multiple tools (alongside Kajabi & Passion.io).

This is hassle-some, both for you as well as your students. With Scenes, do it all in one place.

comparison of different platforms

If you want your own white labeled app, Kajabi doesn't give you much in terms of branding. Kajabi has its own name attached to the app.

With Scenes, you can have your own fully white-labled mobile & web app starting at $299/mo. We're able to do this because of our fully automated app engine (spins out a custom app in ~30 mins).

The difference is in our DNA

We're content creators, teachers AND community builders.

And, we know how everything ties together to make a business.

We've been teaching online since 2018. We ran one of the world's largest educational communities from 2019-2021 and scaled to $500,000 revenue by selling cohort-based courses. We kept hopping from one software to another because the experience of actually using all available software is bad.

This led us to build Scenes - an all-in-one platform to run your courses, cohorts, webinars, events, voice chat rooms, etc. - on mobile & web (100% white-labeled).
