Before we go any further, let’s talk about why you’re here

If you’re comparing Ontraport vs. Kajabi, you’re clearly on track to finding a user-friendly platform to run and market your membership content.

Still, with so many different features, packages and price points offered by both platforms, it can be overwhelming to figure out which one is right for you.

It’s a big decision and an important investment for your business.
We get it, and that’s why we’re here to help clear things up. We’ll give you the facts about Ontraport and our honest assessment of Ontraport vs. Kajabi.

But first, a note: We realize we may come off as biased (heck, we’re Ontraport, comparing ourselves to one of our competitors), but that’s not our intention! We want what’s best for you, whether it’s Ontraport or not. (It’s true — we often refer potential customers elsewhere if we know another tool would better suit their needs. We want you to be successful with our platform, not just pay our bill.)

So, let’s take a look ...

We’ll get into the feature comparisons below,  but what it all comes down to is this: 

At Ontraport, we see ourselves as a partner in your success, not just as another software tool on your belt. Our team cares about your business: We’ll start by working side-by-side with you to create a roadmap for your success, and from then on our over-the-top-helpful support team will be available anytime you need.

Outside of our team, you’ll find a strong community of entrepreneurs and marketers in our highly active Facebook group. While you’re there, you’ll get to know our founder and CEO: He pops up on the regular (really, we can’t keep him away!) to answer questions and share updates.

We built this platform because we wanted to remove the burden of technology so small businesses could bring their value to the world (ahem, that's our mission statement). That translates to a thoughtfully built toolset that empowers you to effectively market and sell your services, alongside a team that’s got your back — for the long haul.

Let’s look at the  top differences 

Our sales reps have talked to thousands of people who are comparing Ontraport vs. Kajabi, so they have a good idea of what separates the two. Here’s what they had to say.

Ontraport lets you automate more than just marketing

If you’re looking for basic marketing automation, like sending drip emails to your members, Kajabi membership sites have you covered. But to really keep your members engaged with your content, you’ll likely want to run more sophisticated automations, such as sending access to the next course immediately after they finish one or running campaigns based on membership level. Ontraport allows you to easily set this up, and much more. And with Ontraport, you can automate more than just your email follow-up; our full marketing, sales and business automation suite empowers you to automate the full member experience as well as many of your time-consuming internal processes.

Ontraport makes it easy to expand your course offerings, without upping the price tag

While templated, uniform systems make Kajabi membership sites attractive for newbies, you have to shell out more money if you want to sell more courses or digital products. That can add up pretty quickly! Ontraport, on the other hand, gives you unlimited access to our page builder and templates so you can host as many courses as you want.

Ontraport gives you quality support, without lag time

Like many platforms, Kajabi plans offer basic chat and email support — but it may take a while to get your issue resolved. With Ontraport, you’ll have a team of dedicated support reps who know their stuff and respond fast. We also offer free setup support to most account levels so you can ramp up quickly and get business going.

Ontraport puts you in control of your mailing reputation

At Ontraport, we understand how important it is for your emails to get delivered to the inbox, so we offer all users access to features that enhance delivery. Higher-level packages also get direct access to our team of email delivery experts who can review your email program and coach you to success. Plus, high-volume senders can access the private infrastructure they need.

Ontraport tracks the most extensive, granular data

When it comes to data, Ontraport will give you far more detailed reports, from top-level sales and revenue performance to granular email and landing page stats. You can view your data in real time or on trend charts, then easily optimize your campaigns and make smart decisions about where to allocate your resources.

Ontraport is built to grow with you

Part of Kajabi’s appeal is that it’s a solid platform for businesses that are still getting off the ground. But if you plan on scaling your business over time, Kajabi may not be for you. As your business grows, you’ll want a platform that keeps up with you.  Ontraport was built to incorporate all the core solutions a business needs to manage its entire customer lifecycle, including marketing, business and sales automation, membership sites, partner programs and so much more. You can rest easy knowing that you won't have to buy a whole different platform down the road as your business needs change.

Here's what our customers are saying

I moved my course and membership over from Kajabi to Ontraport about a year ago, and I'm so glad I did. I can do soooooooo much more in Ontraport than I could ever do in Kajabi.
– Ellen Bathgate, Rent Roll Starter
Of all the marketing automation systems I have tried over the years, Ontraport is by far the easiest one to implement and manage. The features you get rival the features that you would find in a system that is four or five times the price. And then there’s the customer support — their live chat is amazing and if you need some more in-depth support, they will schedule a live screen share with you. You can't go wrong with Ontraport.
– Kevin Snow, Time On Target, Trustpilot
Ontraport has very high email deliverability rates, which is one of the most important stats in email marketing nowadays. Ontraport can do it all — it's highly customizable, has the best campaign builder and reporting tools out there.
