You’ve heard of these two platforms in the world of online courses, but is Thinkific better than Kajabi? Let’s find out.
Thinkific vs Kajabi: The judgement criteria
How much will it cost you?
With Thinkific, you’ll get a free plan where you can launch your course, albeit with less features than the paid versions.If you’re okay with shelling out some money to customize your course further, you can choose one of the following subscriptions plans.
> Basic: $39/month
> Pro: $79/month
> Premier: $399/month
When compared to Thinkific, Kajabi is much heavier on the pocket. However, if you cancel your subscription within the first 30 days, you can get a full refund. The subscription plans available on Kajabi are:
> Basic: $119/mo
> Growth: $159/mo
> Pro: $319/mo
Will you get a mobile app?
Although Thinkific’s Course Player is fully mobile responsive, you won’t have your own mobile app. Since people prefer using smartphones over desktops — 65% of all digital media time is spent on mobile devices — you could be losing out on some serious customer engagement with Thinkific.
Kajabi users will be able to access your content with a free and versatile mobile app. They can watch courses and network with peers on the go. All their progress will be saved on the app, which automatically syncs with the web application. You can download it from both iOS and Android phones and access downloadable resources like presentations, PDFs and excel files.
Can you build YOUR brand?
Want to add your personal stamp to each course you sell? Thinkific will come in handy. You get default themes, but it also gives you the option of personalizing further using HTML/CSS coupled with a templating language called Liquid. If you want to completely revamp the website, you’ll need to hire a designer and upgrade your plan.
In Kajabi, you can add your own logo and customize your page to align with your branding too. Simply go into the Site Branding Settings and you’ll get various options to change the way your page looks.

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).
