Welcome to the show. Today I want to talk about a quick comparison between Kajabi and ClickFunnels. Because let's face it, if you want to sell something online, you need a webpage or a funnel and you need actually a site where you can host your digital product.
Whether you want to launch a new product or create something new for your existing product, you actually need a good tool to execute on your vision, so. If this is the first episode on the podcast you're hearing, just go on at the podcast. Leave a five-star rating and follow the podcast if you get any value for your business and for your life, right, so.
This podcast is more like a hands-down kind of thing. I didn't prepare a script or something, I just talk from experience. I am just recommending the most convenient tool for you so you can get started as fast as possible, make the most money you can while keeping costs low right, so.
That's the most important thing when you're starting out. If you're a veteran who has bunch of products, I'll talk about that too, so.
It has almost everything that you can dream of, right, so.
When you're selling a product, you actually need a good sales page and this can be done. You can sell products in a bunch of different ways. You can do webinars, you can use video sales letters, text sales letters. It's called TSL, text sales letters, and the video sales letters is called VSL.
You can host automated webinars with it and stuff, create order form pages and everything. Kajabi has order form pages and landing pages too, but they are not as customizable and easy to use as ClickFunnels.
So this point goes to ClickFunnels because it's easy to use.
The next part I want to talk about is the pricing that's for me, very important because... I don't know the number exactly right now, but I looked it up a couple of weeks ago and Kajabi was way more, way more than the ClickFunnels account. When I checked it, they had this weird thing that you only can pay a full year.
So even though they're saying, let's say, I don't know the exact number right now, but even though they were saying it's $90 a month or something, they actually count it as over a year. So it's at 90 but it's 90 times 12 and that's scary. That's a scary number to start with.
If it's your first month online and you just want to get an idea out into the world and to the public and launch something, that's really scary. Oh, and that's why I prefer using software tools that have free trials or something and then a monthly cost.
When it's a good software, I go through lifetime or yearly plan or something and that's why I choose ClickFunnels in this one, so. It's basically a little bit less expensive. So this point goes to ClickFunnels, too.
When creating the online course, the customization part and everything, if you know what you're doing, ClickFunnels gets even better in this one because of the customization features and how you can build every module the way you like it and everything, but that comes down at the price of simplicity, right, so.
If you're given a beautiful set of tools, you can use everything right so you can build almost anything, but it gets overwhelming. So this is where Kajabi shines because it has a straight line process for building membership sites and everything.
If this is not your first product but you want to host a bunch of products in a simple membership area, Kajabi is the way to go to because you can just build one like a school and have different classes in it with classrooms for example.
You can then just launch new products, new products, and you just have to build it up once and just put in new products with it. ClickFunnels, you have to do like, yeah, let's say maximum three products in one membership area and even though the products need to be aligned with another, so it just three products within the funnel or something because it can get messy.
In ClickFunnels, you make one branding. Let's say you have this weight loss branding or something and you put in other products, right, so your product has specific name and you put in the logo or something, then the logo will be on every of those three products, right, so.
ClickFunnels is more of a one membership per product kind of thing plus upsells and stuff. Kajabi, you can build like a whole information academy, university or something, call it whatever you want, or school within the school of multiple products that you have, right, so.
That point goes to Kajabi.
If you're somebody like me, for example, who has a lot of information products and you just want a place for people to log in once and the accesses will get updated every time they buy a new course, then you should probably go to Kajabi because this is the place to go, right, because you just give people one access password.
Every time they log in after they purchased, they have the new product inside their members area, so that's the thing here. So ClickFunnels is very for one product and Kajabi is for multiple products.
This is the main reason why I would think about using it, so.
For example for me, it makes much sense because I have multiple products and, yeah, if a student wants a new product, he doesn't need to create a new account and everything. It's very convenient, so. On the other hand, the pricing is significantly higher.
So in my opinion, it is not worth the price at the beginning. So what I encourage you to do is just sign up for a free trial of ClickFunnels and just give it a shot, right?
So decide on what you want to sell.
Create let's say a video sales letter page or something. Put in your video and then host a first online course inside a membership area, which is password protected.
Then you can really customize the whole experience, make let's say eight modules or something inside each module or do two to three videos that explain your point and then host the thing.
As soon as you have four products or something, then you could maybe do the switch to Kajabi, yeah, just to have more of a structure in your courses and everything.
If you are really serious about this, you can even combine ClickFunnels with Kajabi. They have a deep integration where if somebody buys something via ClickFunnels, you can add them automatically to Kajabi, so. If you're growing, you can just switch it up and the password protection of Kajabi is a lot better, right, so.
If you have multiple products, then it will be benefiting you in the long run. You can just start out with a free trial and just take the basic plan of ClickFunnels.
Sell everything until you make your first, let's say 20 grand or something and a few on the five to $6,000 per month mark, you can switch it up to a Kajabi account or something.
I just stayed with ClickFunnels until this day, but I am thinking since two months ago...
Since two months, I'm thinking about switching my courses to something like a Kajabi or a Teachable because there's a unified membership area where every product is hosted right in and people just have to log in once. That's the main reason why you should use a dedicated membership software.
If you're like me and you need everything kind of... If you're like me and everything is as important as one another, so you need sales pages, video sales pages, webinar, registration pages and everything and you want to test the whole bunch of stuff before you focusing on one thing, then ClickFunnels is the way to go.
Even though and even then after you have decided on which model for selling is the best for you, even then I use ClickFunnels.
Sometimes I do something in WordPress, but that’s more of a headache because it's more coding work and stuff. If it breaks, the support isn’t there. Yeah, it’s pain in the ass but in some cases make sense when I’m blogging or something, so yeah.
That’s it for this episode. I think you should go with ClickFunnels first and then go with Kajabi if you launch a bunch of products. So if you’re doing a product launch once a quarter or something then after a year or so, you should consider joining Kajabi as well, so.
I wouldn’t use Kajabi alone, because you don’t have those selling features as advanced as ClickFunnels has. So that’s it for this episode.
If you want to get a hands-down workshop where I show you everything I do to create, launch and sell my own digital products like courses, coaching and everything, I’m creating right now a free workshop where you can sign up.
I’ll teach you to the whole process and how I made my first digital product, a six-figure product within under a year without any investments, without any start-up costs, and even without at so with free traffic.
So going into the show notes, sign up for this thing and I’ll notify you when the workshop is ready. There’s a waiting list right now and then see you in the next episode. Bye-bye.
