7 Reasons Why You Should Use Kajabi Kajabi Summit 2019

Reducing this down to a list of 7 was pretty hard, but here it is… Kajabi Summit 2019

1. It’s built to sell.

Kajabi has excellent tools for creating sales funnels and landing pages, and turning site visitors into customers. You can also manage all of your email marketing within Kajabi – such as automated follow-up sequences – so, theres no need for a third party platform (although it does integrate quite easily with Aweber, Mailchimp, and Active Campaign). Overall, Kajabi is ahead of most other online course software in the native marketing and selling capabilities it provides.

2. It looks great from the beginning.

Kajabi offers several alternatives on a core site theme that looks modern and professional and additionally, it offers very alluring, functional templates for creating your landing pages and sales pipeline pages. There’s also a market for custom, premium themes if you do not desire to go with what Kajabi gives.

When it comes to actually designing your website, Kajabi has pre-designed themes that you can install with one click. The themes determine the overall look and style of your site and help you easily and quickly design a good looking website.

Kajabi is really taking a different approach with their website themes now. They have archived 10 of the 11 themes and are now focusing just on the Premier Theme.

They’ve developed the Premier Theme to a super flexible framework and they use it to build all the new site themes. These themes are now called Layout Presets and currently there are 6 unique Presets ready for use in their library, all of which are built on the”Premier Framework”.

Kajabi-Layout-Presets

All of the Layout Presets have a clean and modern design and they do look exceptional. Once you install a Preset, you can further modify it with the page builder to give your website the look and feel you like.

You may still use any of the 10 themes that have recently been moved to the Legacy Themes archive if you would like. Although, since Kajabi won’t be working to develop them anymore, I will advise that you use just the Premier Theme for your website.

Kajabi-Themes

Finally, Kajabi also extends you the option to import and use custom themes. Therefore, if you’re a power user, you may hire a programmer to design a completely custom theme for your website.

 

3. It has sufficient blogging capabilities.

While not yet at par with WordPress, the blogging capability Kajabi presents are really better than those of most online course platforms. (And, remember, a solid blog is just one of your greatest assets for attracting visitors to your website and products.)

 

4. It has powerful video streaming capabilities.

Kajabi has Wistia – among the all-around best video hosting programs – fully integrated for uploading and streaming your videos. Because of this you can be assured that your videos will work as good as possible for whatever bandwidth or screen any individual client is using — and that they will be as secure as possible.

On top of that, this does not need a separate Wistia license – it’s just baked in. Keep in mind the Wistia pricing begins at $99 per month for a Pro license (what most class sellers will need) – so, considering that entry-level Kajabi pricing starts at $149 per month ($119 is paid annually), this is a pretty big bargain. Kajabi Summit 2019

 

5. It will jumpstart your product creation.

Kajabi provides excellent templates for mini courses, online classes, evergreen trainings, and memberships. You can alter these by adding your own content and removing anything you do not need, and you’ll be off and running in no time. Kajabi Summit 2019

6. It makes live events really easy to create and promote.

This in a way goes along with product development, but Kajabi is so powerful in this region, it deserves to be mentioned separately.

You can easily set up a Zoom Webinar in Kajabi and – even better – create a pipeline out around it that contains your registration page, e-mails, a post-event offer page, and a checkout page. Kajabi supplies templates for all of this, so all you’ve got to do is alter the text and put in your Zoom link. (You do have to have your own Zoom account.)

You can use this same approach to prepare virtual summits or conferences or even place-based events. (These kinds of events use Legacy pipeline templates in Kajabi. I’m assuming later versions of these will come out at a certain point, but they work just fine right now.)

 

7. It is supported by an extensive network

Kajabi has been around for quite some time. Because of this, there are a majority of businesses out there that have created custom themes for it (as mentioned previously) and that provide a range of services to support it. There are also lots of articles and blog posts out there addressing just about anything you need to do with Kajabi. If you can’t find what you would like through the company’s own support and training – that are quite good – you will almost certainly be able to find it out on the web.

So, there is really quite a lot to like about Kajabi.

In general, Kajabi will give you a lot more power than most course platforms over developing a website where you can offer your courses but also manage the whole Web presence for your small business. To put it differently, you do not need to set up a separate site on WordPress or another platform – a Kajabi site can be your home base.

 

Pricing Kajabi Summit 2019

In the past, I have seen online course platforms offering free plans, and some inexpensive ones around $20. However, it seems like you usually receive the best features around the $50 to $100 pricing.

When you look at Kajabi, it’s surely going to look like the pricing is quite off the charts. The cheapest of the plans is $103 per month, and that is when you pay annually. It’s not exactly what online course startups want to hear, but it’s clear who Kajabi caters to.

The most affordable plan, as mentioned, sells for $103 per month. With that, you acquire support for five products (courses) and 1,000 active members. Hence, Kajabi is more of a high-powered system for comprehensive courses.

The company is trying to get you to make quality products, then promote the hell out of them with the intense advertising tools.

Let’s have a look at the complete range of pricing: Kajabi Summit 2019

Basic $103 per month gets you support for 5 products, 25,000 marketing emails per month, 1 admin user, 1,000 active members, 1 website, and 25 pipelines.

Pro $311 per month gets you support for 100 products, 75,000 marketing emails per month, 5 admin users, 10,000 active members, 3 websites, and 100 pipelines. You also get an affiliate program and also the option to remove the Kajabi branding.

Premium $719 per month gets you support for unlimited products, 150,000 marketing emails per month, 25 admin users, unlimited active members, 10 websites, and unlimited pipelines. You also receive an affiliate program and also the option to remove the Kajabi branding.

Kajabi-Pricing

An Enterprise plan is also sold, but you need to speak to the Kajabi company so as to acquire more info on that. I’d presume Kajabi is glad to support any enterprise size, so you can customize your plan.

It’s also worth mentioning that all Kajabi plans come with 0% transaction fees, 24/7 email and live chat support, drip content, advanced customization tools, training courses, and webinars

 

Free Trial

Kajabi does not provide a free plan but it does offer a free trial on all plans so that you can try the software. Normally, Kajabi offers a 14-day free trial but you can receive a 28-day free trial as part of their Kajabi Hero Challenge.

Kajabi-Hero-Challenge

This challenge is a proven strategy for getting yourself on the perfect path to becoming a Kajabi Hero.

When you take this Challenge, over the next 28 days Kajabi will assist you through everything you will need to do to build your first digital product and make your first sale. .All within 28 days!

 

Customer Support

The email and live chat support are provided 24/7. So, when you run into a situation with your course website, you can contact one of the live chat representatives, regardless of what time it is. I asked a question and they came back to me in 20 minutes. Of course, it doesn’t always happen so fast and they don’t have a guarantee to reply you within 20 mins. But for me, this shows a good support.

If you get a yearly plan, they will give you two 1-on-1 classes that last an hour. During those lessons, they’ll take you hand by hand and reveal how you can start using Kajabi.

In terms of the internet resources, Kajabi does not disappoint.

Event and webinar options are provided for the Premium plan clients, but everybody is able to get the Kajabi blog and the help center.

The blog covers everything from content promotion to improve your writing skills, and the help center has videos and articles for comprehending the Kajabi features for marketing, integrations, your online shop, and the managing of accounts.

Kajabi also includes a rich collection of videos and articles, so the help center is excellent for those who want to finish their own research.

 

Pros

The best part of Kajabi is that everything is under one roof. Email, landing pages, sales pages, shopping cart, website, blog, marketing funnels, online courses. It’s all there in one system. PERFECT.

And you know what, Kajabi does a reasonably good job at the majority of those functions, and they are always enhancing and adding more features.

But what nearly always surprises me is the live customer care. They provide 24/7 live chat, and the longest I’ve ever had to wait (and I’ve chatted at all times of day and night!) Is three or four minutes, once. Every other occasion (and there have been many!) I’m almost immediately connected to somebody. And these people are awesome. They’ll get you the answer, assist  you troubleshoot your issue, and also tinker around with some options or codings on the page to make it work if you are trying something a little more different and can’t quite get it to work right. Seriously. The support staff is the best!

 

Cons

The price, this program is definitely on the expensive side and greater than their competitors.

 

Is Kajabi Worth It? Kajabi Summit 2019

To begin with, I answer the question that some folks were asking online, “Is Kajabi a scam?” No, Kajabi isn’t a scam. Kajabi Summit 2019

If you do not classify yourself as a”techy” person, and you know, without a doubt, that you don’t need to learn how to do any type of custom coding, Kajabi should be at the top of your list for consideration.

I love that it not only focuses on course production but also on sales and marketing.

Because many folks end up trying to choose between Rainmaker or Kajabi, in a sentence, I will sum up the recommendation like this: Kajabi is far better at developing a membership area for online courses than Rainmaker.

So get out there and start creating courses!
