Kartra vs Kajabi: The judgement criteria

  • check mark

    How quickly can you get started?

    Kajabi comes with a clean and minimalistic design. When you log in to the platform, you’ll see high-level insights about your business to the right. The left side displays various menu options that house different tools. These tools are segmented into four overarching categories – website, marketing, products and people. The platform follows a simple drag-and-drop interface that’s easy to navigate, allowing for a steep learning curve.

    You’ll need to put in a little more time and effort to learn Kartra. There are a bunch of configuration steps to follow with each new offering, and it could be overwhelming for experienced users too.

    What does it specialize in?

    Kajabi’s primary focus lies in selling online courses. If you’re looking to create and sell digital content, the platform will help you build a course website. Here, you’ll be able to develop, host and deliver a wide array of digital products. Though it’s more geared towards the education space, Kajabi offers tools for building websites and marketing funnels as well. 

    On the other hand, Kartra is primarily a marketing platform. Although it provides users with the ability to host online courses, most of its tools revolve around email marketing and funnel-building, among others.

    Will you get a mobile app?

    You get a free and versatile mobile app with Kajabi, where users can watch courses, network with peers and save the progress for each course. This automatically syncs with the web application. The app is available on both iOS and Android. You'll also be able to access downloadable resources like presentations, PDFs and excel files. This promotes self-learning to a great extent. 

    Kartra, on the other hand, doesn’t have a dedicated app for Android or iOS users. That being said, you can always access Kartra on a mobile device through a browser.

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).
