So that’s the quick introduction when it comes to the Kartra ClickFunnels battle.
I recommend that you keep reading on to get even more information about these funnel tools.
I’ll also talk about how you can some bonuses as well.
And that’s certainly something that you don’t want to miss out on when you’re getting started.
So let’s start with Kartra first.
Kartra Superpowers: What This Software Offers And Its Overall Cost
Kartra is going to be the younger software in the matchup against ClickFunnels.
So as you can see from the screenshot of the Kartra website, their tagline is:
Your online business made easy.
Kartra definitely hit the nail on the head when it comes to that claim.
Aside from making your online business easier, this software also allows you to:
- Create, market, and launch online.
- Without hiring copywriters, web developers, designers, or system integrators.
All of these claims are true as well, as you also don’t need to be a coder to use Kartra.
Before I talk about some of their best features, there’s one thing I’d like to let you know.
Kartra comes with a 14-day trial that happens to cost one simple little dollar.
However, I’m giving you the ability to double your trial duration.
So if you want to test out Kartra, you’ll be able to get a 30-day trial duration instead.
I’ll leave a related post down below that walks you through the simple process.

So what exactly can you expect to see in terms of tools and features with Kartra?
Let’s talk about that right now.
Kartra Landing Pages, Sales Funnels, And Done For You Campaigns
Landing pages and funnels… oh my!
This is where there’s going to be a lot of overlap when being compared to ClickFunnels.
In fact, almost everything that Kartra offers can be rightfully compared to ClickFunnels.
Either way, creating a landing page is a similar process for both of the landing page tools.
I would have to say that ClickFunnels overall has a better process.
More about that when we get to ClickFunnels though.
With Kartra, you kickstart the process by picking a template for your specific landing page.
Down below are examples of a few templates that you can pick for your pages:
Kartra has templates to help you create a wide variety of different marketing pages.
In case the image is harder to see, here are a few examples of pages that you can create:
- Checkout pages.
- Long sales pages.
- Lead generation pages.
- Thank you and download pages.
- Product launch and review pages.
You can also create webinar registration pages, but there’s something I want to mention.
Important: Kartra doesn’t come along with the ability to create webinars (ClickFunnels does).
This is because their company, Genesis Digital, already has two software tools to do that:
Back to talking about creating the pages for your funnels with Kartra.
As I described in my review of Kartra, there’s a lot of flexibility that comes with their editor.
Down below is a screenshot of the Kartra drag and drop editor in action:
I’m not going to go into too much detail when it comes to creating your marketing pages.
The fact of the matter is that Kartra still has a smooth process for getting the job done.
Kartra also allows you to:
- Use popups.
- Utilize helpful analytics.
- Utilize the split-testing feature.
- Automatically have them mobile optimized.
As you might expect, these are perks that ClickFunnels also features in their platform.
Helpful Note: Split-testing is a feature that you want to see from any page builder.
However, there is something that ClickFunnels doesn’t offer.
It’s a little known bonus that I feel more people need to know about (shown below):
This extra perk or bonus is referred to as the Kartra done for you campaigns.
These are full-blown campaigns that were created by marketing legends such as:
- Frank Kern.
- Andy Jenkins.
Sad Note: Andy Jenkins, one of the owners of Kartra, passed away not too long ago.
What makes these campaigns so legendary is that they had generated millions of dollars.
So it’s not something that was just randomly added in.
This is beneficial because it’s one of the fastest ways to get started with your sales funnels.
Either that or you can utilize the share funnel feature (which ClickFunnels also has).
So that’s a little bit of information when it comes to the Kartra pages and funnels.
If Kartra sounds like it would be a great fit for you so far?
I’ll leave a link down below where you can get started with them (extended trial link):
So let’s take a look at a few reasons why Kartra just might have the edge over ClickFunnels.
In fact, this was one of my first favorite Kartra features.
Kartra Membership Areas
So both Kartra and ClickFunnels allow you to create membership sites with their platforms.
However, Kartra is going to be the best option when it comes to this specific feature.
And while ClickFunnels doesn’t have many weaknesses?
Their membership feature would certainly have to be their biggest weakness.
So Kartra comes with many more great membership templates than ClickFunnels.
You can have a look at a few examples of templates that I added down below:
Kartra memberships are also much more flexible in terms of what you need to edit.
In fact, Kartra claims that their memberships can replace other options such as:
- Thinkific membership platform.
- Teachable membership platform.
However, this is another feature that I don’t want to go into too a ton of detail.
This is simply for the fact that I want to get the main point across about this feature:
Kartra is better for creating membership sites.
So given the fact that Kartra came out many years after ClickFunnels first launched?
It allowed them some time to be able to one-up their biggest competitor.
By doing this, they added many features that ClickFunnels still doesn’t have to this day.
Here’s a look at a few of them.
Kartra Video Hosting, Calendars, And Helpdesks For Customer Support
ClickFunnels is considered to be an all-in-one platform, and Kartra too.
However, Kartra certainly has a few more tools and features compared to ClickFunnels.
As you can see above, the ability to host videos is going to be one of them.
Kartra will host all of your videos so that you don’t need another third-party tool like:
Aside from video hosting, Kartra also comes along with helpdesks and calendars.
Having a help desk is great for providing customer support to your customers.
There’s not a lot to compare here, given the fact that ClickFunnels doesn’t offer these.
If you’d like to learn more about these features (and many more of Kartra’s tools)?
You can read the in-depth review of Kartra that I added down below for you.

- Kartra Starter is $99 per month.

Created by Russel Brunson, this software tool will help you:

I would have to agree with that claim as well, as ClickFunnels is great for creating sales funnels.

As I’ve stated previously, these are certainly the two best options for creating sales funnels.
Now ClickFunnels allows you to create many different types of pages and funnels.
Down below are a few examples for you:

Similar to Kartra, you can also create checkout pages for selling products, offers, and services.

Both tools also come along with a feature that’s referred to as an order bump.
It’s shown in the screenshot, and it allows you to make an extra offer on your checkout page.
Regardless of the software that you end up using?
Promise me that you’ll make use of the profitable order bump feature.
It’s one of the easiest ways to make even more sales for your online business.
So I’ve talked about how Kartra overall has many tools compared to ClickFunnels.
However, there is going to be one massive feature that Kartra doesn’t offer.
Let’s take a look at that ClickFunnels feature now.
ClickFunnels Webinar (Automated And Live)
This is going to be one of those big differences when it comes to ClickFunnels vs Kartra.
That’s why I decided to create a quick section about it.
- ClickFunnels allows you to create and run webinars.
- Kartra does NOT allow you to create and run webinars.
As I stated previously, it’s because their company already has software for doing that.
If you’re looking to sell high-ticket offers?
Then webinars are going to be one of the best ways to make those high-ticket sales.
Plus with ClickFunnels, you can run both:
- Live webinars.
- Automated webinars (also known as evergreen webinars).
The image that I added above showcases a few steps for an automated webinar.
ClickFunnels also comes with quite a few templates for your webinar pages as well:
So with ClickFunnels, you won’t need to get a separate webinar software tool.
With Kartra, you will need to get a separate webinar software tool.
That’s something to keep in mind.
This is certainly a big advantage when it comes to picking ClickFunnels over Kartra.
Similar to Kartra, ClickFunnels has a ton more features that come along with their platform.
