Kajabi The Non Affiliate Truthful Review
The MOST important audio you will hear about Kajabi listen:
UPDATE: The Kajabi Killer is COMING!
I know all of us have seen the BIG HYPE about this new application called Kajabi. But first I would like to say this:
- I am NOT an affiliate this is not a sales review
- I am not a HATER this is not a I am mad a Andy Jenkins the Kajabi creator review
I want to get that out the way. There are several things that I want to share that should help clarify this whole Kajabi Phenomena.
What the Heck is a Kajabi?
Kajabi is a new cross application that helps you manage your landing pages, email list building campaigns, and sales funnels all in one place.
Kind of like a universal remote for your TV, DVD player, stereo. So if say your using aweber for email marketing which I strongly endorse (there are no affiliated links in this article). And you have a landing page, a shopping cart like 1shoppingcart then you can integrate then and setup campaigns etc from Kajabi.
Membership sites/ Community sites
Another feature they are providing is a way to create a customer community through a membership site.
Landing pages, Sales Funnel, Shopping Cart integration, Email signup, Autoresponder, Membership sites.
Sounds great huh? But wait there are a few issues Kajabi doesn’t answer.
OK Here is the REALITY check with Kajabi
Kajabi is not free it is a 14 day free trail. And afterwards a monthly charge. Now for the record I don’t think these are bad prices below given you are making more than what they are charging.
Starter package: $99 see video below
Pro package: $199 see video below
Ultra Package: $299 see video below
Here are 3 MAJOR challenges to using Kajabi.
Challenge 1: If you suffer from information overload and a lack of ONLINE entrepreneur PURPOSE. Then Kajabi will BLEED YOU DRY. But it isn’t because they are scamming you or trying to dupe you. It is because it will still take you time to wrap your head around their system by using your purpose and talents to make money online.
Challenge 2: If you only have ONE source of online income DO NOT use Kajabi. WHY? Imagine wanting to leave or your business hits a bump. Kajabi in the video below says that if you cancel ALL OF YOUR CONTENT WILL BE ERASED. And hey I am not saying that they are wrong for doing that after all your no longer paying them why should they keep it on there? But then you have to find other solutions to fill the gap of the remaining business you were getting. Like the investment people say never put all of your eggs in one basket.
Challenge 3: If you do NOT have a running online business making at least $200 a month DO NOT buy Kajabi. Hey challenges 1 and 2 may not be a problem for you. So lets say you have for example (3) sites each earning around $100 a month. Here is why you should rethink about going to Kajabi with at least one of those sites.
Kajabi will cut your investment in half and unless YOU have a way to grow your sales with their application.
Darren you don’t have these 3 challenges are you using Kajabi?
I don’t wanna (KIDDING). Seriously here is why I am not in favor of Kajabi.
When I was a kid my grandmother taught me how to add numbers very quickly. But of course if there were too many numbers I would (and still do) grab a calculator. I am not Dustin Hoffman’s rain man character. I can’t tell you what 134 multiplied by 198 is inside of 60 seconds (laughing). But I can tell you the percentage on a sale instantly or the 2 set number addition and multiplication answers quicker than most.
What I am saying here is that I was taught long ago how to solve problems without relying on technology to solve them for me. Nothing wrong with grabbing a easy calculator (or fantstico cpanel in some cases). But if I relied on a calculator all the time being without one would WEAKEN you.
Kajabi solves a problem for some but potentially weakens the problem solving ability of online entrepreneurs. I am not saying take the hard road but realize with Google and other search there are other avenues IF your a intermediate blogger or online entrepreneur.
Lastly there is an admitted TRUST factor
If my memory serves me correctly one or two of the GURUs associated with Kajabi have been SLAPPED and or BANNED by Google, Authorize.net, and Twitter. Do you really want them to have access to your sales data or campaign information? Because I do not. I am not saying they would but by association there is always a possibility.
So Darren What do I do if I am a non tech person?
The first thing you do is STOP paying the price with your lack of knowledge by doing your homework. So I am going to lay this out for you.The following are NON affiliate related to me services you can use.
Kajabi streams videos uploaded: so does most hosting companies. It is a standard thing to have unlimited bandwidth. Don’t get me wrong you can’t go crazy but for $20 hosting package I almost guarantee you your covered on streaming. Hey listen I am not saying become one but sooner or later you got to learn this stuff or pay the cost of not knowing it.
Kajabi launch pages: good idea to have a software to make these. But there are plenty of wordpress and HTML templates you can create with free software. And if you stop using them they wont delete your pages…Kajabi will.
Kajabi is selling Microsoft packaging. Is Kajabi relevant? Possibly, only time will tell. As we all know Microsoft is certainly is relevant.But that doesn’t stop the pros from using Google Docs, Open Source Word Documents, Firefox, Mac, and Safari.
Nothing replaces research, education, instruction, and consistent follow through. Coupled with assessment and affirmation of your online purpose Kajabi will begin to look different to you.
You must begin to learn the sales funnel, landing page, email marketing, and how membership sites are made without Kajabi. The world is your search engine and there is a ton of options. The MOST important thing you could purchase right now is instruction. You need someone who will give it to your strait.
Don’t let shiny thing syndrome stray you from your life’s path. All that Kajabi (or glitters) ain’t gold. STAY FOCUSED.
