What Is Kartra? A Look At How This All In One Platform Overpowers Teachable

features that come along with this all in one platform

If you couldn’t tell by now, Kartra is one ultra-powerful online software tool.

In fact, I created an entirely different post just to talk about what they are and do.

You don’t need to read it, as I condensed the information in this article.

Related Post: What Kartra is and what it can do.

As shown in the screenshot that I added above, Kartra’s tagline is:

Your online business made easy.

As also shown in the screenshot above, Kartra allows you to:

  • Create, market, and launch online (yes, even online courses).
  • All without hiring a team of copywriters, web developers, or system integrators.

This software is also mostly known for its ability to create simple:

  • Landing pages.
  • High-converting Kartra funnels.

As you’ll see shortly, Kartra comes with much more than those amazing features.

Kartra Vs Teachable: Kartra offers many more online business-building features.

Kartra also comes with a 14-day trial that costs only one dollar.

I’ll add the link for you down below:

It gets even better too.

I figured out a way where you can extend the Kartra 14-day trial to 30 days.

I’ll leave a tutorial article that shows you exactly how the process is done:

So that’s a quick introduction when it comes to this powerful sales funnel builder.

Let’s now take a look at some of the features that come along with Kartra.

Kartra Memberships For All Of Your Online Courses

kartra membership sites for your course

Remember how I said that Kartra is most well-known for its pages and funnels?

What many people don’t realize is that they are also great for creating memberships.

And ironically enough?

Out of all the special Kartra features that they offer, this happens to be one of my favorites.

Especially when being compared to many other membership site builders out there.

Kartra features a very smooth process for online courses when it comes to:

  • Creating.
  • Launching.
  • As well as marketing.

This feature also has a huge overlap when being compared to Teachable.

So let’s talk a little bit more about why you’ll enjoy creating memberships with Kartra.

For starters, Kartra comes with a wide variety of templates that you can easily edit.

Down below you can see a few of their membership program templates:

kartra membership sites

Aside from changing the template, you can edit the color theme just as easily.

Where the choose color section is, you simply pick the color and it gets applied.

James’ Note: This sounds pretty basic but it’s certainly well needed.

I’d rather click one button to change colors as opposed to changing every color.

Kartra’s memberships also come along with the ability to use their drag and drop builder.

This is a really good thing.

It also means that you won’t have to learn anything new for creating your assets.

At the end of the day, you use the same drag and drop builder for creating:

  • All of your marketing pages.
  • As well as your membership sites.

Kartra features more than just being able to leverage their simple drag and drop builder:

  • Setup your lessons however you want.
  • You can upload videos, audio, or any other files.
  • You can have your content be dripped over a specific amount of time.
  • There’s also an option to have different membership tiers for multiple pricing options.

Helpful Note: Kartra even has its very own video hosting platform.

You can see an example of when I first created a membership site with Kartra below.

It also showcases many of the post content that you can also add to your memberships:

kartra courses and membership sites

There is another membership feature that’s similar to what many course platforms offer.

Kartra memberships also offer single sign-on credentials for your customers.

I don’t know about you, but this is a huge perk for all of your customers.

This means that your customers can purchase:

  • 1 online course from you.
  • 2 online courses from you.
  • 197 online courses from you.

They will still get one log-in for all of the courses that they purchased.

If you’re looking to sell online courses/products, then this is a great feature to have.

Kartra also comes along with little perks such as progression bars.

This is a standard perk and allows your customers to track where they are in the course.

Then once they’ve completed your online course, they’ll get a notification badge.

It’s very similar to gamification.

Kartra has claimed that they are better than both online course platforms including:

  • Teachable (as we’re comparing now).
  • And even Thinkific.

Related: Kartra vs Thinkific.

I do happen to think that Kartra offers a tremendous membership platform.

Especially for the fact that many features go hand-in-hand with memberships.

However, I will talk more about that at the end of this comparison post.

In the meantime, I would recommend that you try Kartra yourself to see how you like them:

So that’s just a little information when it comes to creating membership sites.

After all, it’s an important topic when it comes to creating a course or two.

Let’s now take a look at what many people use Kartra primarily for.

In other words, you can combine these following features with membership sites.

Kartra Create Marketing Pages And A Complete Marketing Funnel(s)

kartra funnel builder

This is one of the biggest reasons why people originally use Kartra:

  • Creating landing pages.
  • Creating high-converting sales funnels.

When it comes to comparing Kartra vs Teachable for pages and sales funnels?

Kartra is the easy winner.

Teachable does come with the ability to create sales pages for your courses.

Outside of that, there isn’t much comparison when it comes to sales funnels.

This is also a big reason why Kartra is on the list of top sales funnel builders.

Related: Listing the best sales funnel builders.

Let’s take a look at what the process looks like when creating your marketing pages.

Similar to creating membership sites, you get to start off with a template of your choice.

Once again, this is a good thing.

Templates are always helpful when it comes to creating any type of landing page.

In other words, templates allow you to:

  • Get most of the creative work already done for you.
  • Get your landing pages finished quicker.
  • Start selling courses quicker.

Have you ever stared at a blank screen online, wondering where to start?

The same thing goes with creating landing pages.

Kartra also comes with plenty of templates for creating different landing pages.

You can check out the image below to get a good idea of what I’m talking about:

kartra membership sites

After choosing a template, it’s pretty easy to get your landing pages up and running.

The text on the image might be difficult to see, especially if you’re on mobile.

So here is a quick list of the landing pages that you can create with Kartra:

  • Thank you.
  • Squeeze pages.
  • Webinar registrations.
  • Long sales and video sales pages.
  • Product review and product launch pages.

Each of those different landing pages come with many templates to choose from.

Note: You can also create any type of landing page that’s not mentioned above.

Once you choose a template, you get to use the Kartra drag and drop builder again.

Down below is a much better look at what it looks like:

kartra page builders

I won’t go into a ton of detail when it comes to their landing page editor.

Either way, their editor comes with a nice perk called Block Templates.

These are specific sections that you can drag and drop onto your pages.

It’s like getting specific sections already done for you.

Kartra landing pages also come along with a few extra perks such as:

  • Utilizing AB split tests.
  • Their pages are 100% mobile responsive.
  • There are over 500 page and section templates.
  • There are plenty of helpful analytics for tracking your growth.

Almost everything can be customized on the inside of the Kartra landing page editor.

Heck, there’s even an option to utilize popups with Kartra as well.

I even use popups on my website, and they are beneficial for:

  • Increasing your clicks.
  • Generating many more leads.
  • As well as increasing your sales.

All in all, Kartra is fabulous when it comes to creating landing pages and sales funnels.

You can also use Kartra to create and sell any type of course or product.

I’ll leave a link down below where you can try them for one dollar:

I’ll also leave an in-depth review where you can learn about all the tools they offer.

Related: Complete Kartra review.

That review covers almost all of the features plus more that I didn’t get to talk about.

Even little details such as email marketing and behavioral adaptive marketing (BAM).

So how much money will it cost to run your entire business with Kartra?

Let’s take a look at how much Kartra is going to cost to use today.

How Much Is The Kartra Software Going To Cost?

kartra pricing

So there are currently four Kartra pricing plans that you can choose from.

  • Kartra Starter is $99 per month.
  • Kartra Silver costs $199 per month.
  • Kartra Gold comes out to $299 per month.
  • Kartra Platinum plan will cost $499 per month.

When it comes to Kartra, the Silver plan is going to be one of the best options.

If you look at the pricing chart above, you’ll see that you get a ton of unlimited perks.

Plus, the Silver plan comes with the Kartra Agency feature.

I’ll compare these prices once we get to the Teachable section which will be later.

Until then, I’ll add a related post when it comes to the Kartra pricing details.

That’s half of the Kartra vs Teachable comparison.

Let’s flip the script now and talk more about what Teachable has to offer.

What Is Teachable? A Look At How It Compares To Kartra

teachable course completion certificates

So now we move onto Teachable which comes along with a much shorter tagline:

Share what you know.

On the Teachable homepage, they also state that you can:

Transform your know-how and experience into a thriving online course business.

So Teachable allows you to create and sell online courses and coaching.

In other words, they are also (and quite obviously) a course hosting platform.

Similar to Kartra, they come along with a trial so that you can see if you like them.

Even slightly better too, the Teachable trial is going to be free instead of one dollar.

You can click the link down below if you’d like to get a free Teachable trial yourself:

So what can you expect to get in terms of features from the Teachable platform?

Let’s take a look at that right now.

Teachable For Your Online Courses

With Teachable, just about everything deals with online courses and coaching products.

So yes, Teachable is all about online course creation and quite a few more things.

Allow me to break down many of the micro-features that come along with products.

Teachable Custom Domains

teachable learning tools

This is pretty much a standard when it comes to any type of online course platform.

It’s beneficial for a few main reasons:

  • You won’t have to see Teachable in your unique domain.
  • You’ll also be able to leverage your brand name within your domain.

So yes, you can certainly use custom domains (with both platforms as well).

Helpful Note: I added a screenshot above showing you how this is done.

It’s not a very difficult process and Teachable comes with plenty of help if needed.

This is another plus, as their knowledge base is also great if you need more help.

Teachable Offers Various Learning Tools For Your Students

teachable learning tools

It’s always a good thing when you have multiple ways of teaching your students.

So when it comes to Teachable, they cover this aspect by being able to leverage:

  • Videos.
  • Multimedia lectures.
  • As well as coaching sessions.

I might have gotten a little ahead of myself though.

Because if you’re getting students in your classes, then you’re making sales.

Teachable also comes along with a way to track all of those sales that you can make.

Teachable Tools Related To Sales

teachable platform and tools

It’s important that you have a good idea of the sales that you’re making.

That allows you to ultimately make a few tweaks in order to increase your sales.

Teachable helps with that because you can track your:

  • Sales.
  • Student insights.

This is made thanks to the comprehensive dashboard on the inside of Teachable.

That’s not the only tool that you get when it comes to using Teachable as well.

Teachable also comes along with an editor that’s used to create your sales pages.

This is where there’s some overlap between Teachable and Kartra.

However, as explained before, Kartra is much more powerful for creating sales pages.

Teachable Coaching

teachable marketing tools

With Teachable, you have the ability to talk live with all of your students.

Teachable puts it very nicely:

  • Run one-on-one sessions with easy-to-build milestone.
  • Task features.
  • Call hosting.

Kartra Vs Teachable: Teachable is going to be favored when it comes to doing live chats.

When it comes to coaching, Teachable also allows you to schedule and book calls.

You can see what the process looks like in the screenshot that I added above.

Here are the steps:

  1. Name your coaching.
  2. Get clients.
  3. Set a price.
  4. Select a start date.
  5. Add your first milestone.

This is a process thanks to the integration that they have with Calendly.

However, Kartra also offers this feature which is referred to as Kartra calendars.

Teachable Unlimited Perks

This is something that I’m always looking for when reviewing software.

As Teachable says on their features page themselves:

Anytime you hear unlimited in life, that’s pretty exciting.

I couldn’t agree anymore.

So when it comes to Teachable, you’ll be able to leverage:

  • Unlimited students.
  • Unlimited video bandwidth.
  • Unlimited courses and coaching services.

Helpful Note: Those unlimited perks come along with all of the paid plans.

You also might be wondering how much Teachable costs after the free trial.

Let’s take a look at how much Teachable costs right now.

How Much Is Teachable Going To Cost?

teachable pricing

Here is a quick list of Teachable pricing plans:

  • Teachable Basic plan is $39 per month.
  • Teachable Pro plan is $119 per month (popular).
  • Teachable Business comes out to $299 every month.

So now you’ve seen the pricing plans of both Kartra and Teachable.

Let’s compare a little bit.

Teachable is going to be cheaper if you were come to compare the first plans of each.

Kartra starts at $99 per month and Teachable starts at $39 per month.

However, Kartra offers so much more with their starter plan (which is obvious).

Kartra is also cheaper and still offers more than the Teachable Pro plan shown above.
