Kajabi vs Teachable
Is Teachable Better than Kajabi? (2023)
You’ve heard of these two platforms in the creator economy, but is Teachable better than Kajabi? Let’s find out.
Kajabi vs Teachable: The judgement criteria
What features will you get?
Kajabi offers a course design feature that helps you create a whole website. With this, you can create blogs for content marketing and community area for students. Kajabi lets you upload content, organize it with a course builder, and add lessons & modules. Moreover, Kajabi has a drag-and-drop design that is easy to use. When creating courses on Kajabi, you'll find a pre-made pipeline that makes it easy to manage your courses. A drip content feature is also available to send out lessons according to your calendar.
On the other hand, Teachable offers you a drag-and-drop course builder, like Kajabi. Teachable does not have much learning curve, so you can easily create and sell your courses. However, you'll find it challenging to maintain student engagement. Furthermore, you can add lessons and modify the download options. You can upload videos, quizzes, and embedded PDFs.
Will you get a mobile app?
Kajabi offers you a mobile app that is free and available both on iOS and Android devices. Your students and customers have one-touch access to all your courses or content. In addition, the Kajabi app makes it easy for your students to view your content. A magic link feature lets your students log in with one click.
Teachable provides a mobile app that allows your members to access your courses on the go. However, you can't build your brand as the app comes with a "Teachable" tag. Teachable has said that the app is only meant to be a complement to the desktop version, which means the primary reason is that your students can easily view your content. Additionally, the Teachable mobile app is only available on iOS devices, so you'll miss out on people who use Android, which is greater than iOS users.
Can you build a community?
With Kajabi, you can build a community area where your members can interact. For example, admins can create topics in a forum-style post so that your students participate in discussions. Your members can stay connected even after completing their course. Moreover, you can send an announcement in bulk and share posts with your community.
Whereas with Teachable, you won't find these functionalities. To build a community, you'll have to integrate other third-party tools like Circle or Facebook groups which is a hassle as you'll be jumping from one platform to another.

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).
