Before Buying Kajabi Answer 5 Questions

You have questions, I have answers! Here is a short list of five questions you need to…

Ask Yourself Before You Buy Kajabi:

1. Will You Use It?

Sure, this one seems obvious, but many people seem to simply purchase the latest “shiny object” out there without thinking about how (or if) it will fit into their current business model.

Make sure it is something you either have an immediate need for or can see ways to use it NOW. Hey, I am not completely off base on buying things we never use. Remember that Binary Clock that you thought would look good in your office?

Take a look at what others are doing with Kajabi (some pretty amazing stuff). Think you got what it takes (hint: you probably do) – then by all means, jump in. If it is going to stay on your computer gathering dust with MineSweeper, keep moving on.

2. Is it in your budget?

Although I believe the membership site software is a very fair price, there are other Kajabi alternatives. Anytime you purchase software for your business, particularly one that has a monthly cost, you need to make sure that the software is increasing your bottom line.

In other words, if you spend the $99 (which is the Kajabi price for the basic monthly package), are you getting back more than that each month? For myself, I look for a 3-1 ratio. For every dollar I throw out there, I want three back. Sounds fair and in my case, the membership software more than delivers on that one!

3. Is it easy to use? (And I don’t mean just for you.)

Ok, maybe it should be easy for you to use as well, but, in the end, who cares about you? I mean really, you should be looking out for your customers. Is it easy to use or do they have to struggle to find their way around? [Read more...]

3 Kajabi Alternatives for Membership Sites

Hey, you don’t pick a favorite donut (or is it doughnut?) without checking out a few options, right?

If you are in the market for membership site software, but wondering what your other options might be, look no further. Here are the top picks when…

Considering a Kajabi Alternative

1. OptimizePress

Probably the biggest Kajabi competitor, OptimizePress has grown considerably over the past several months and developed a significant following.

Like Kajabi, OptimizePress allows you to build squeeze pages, secure membership areas, and sales funnels.

In contrast, OptmizePress is currently [Read more...]

Kajabi Launches Flight Academy

Some people are going to be pissed!

Over the last couple weeks the Kajabi team released Flight Academy – an online training platform for those wishing to sell online. So here’s my…

 Review of Kajabi Flight Academy

Review Kajabi Flight AcademyIt is a solid training that starts with 30-days of “missions” designed to get you off the ground.

Moving onward, you also have access to the “Flight School” which covers areas such as Niche Research, Product Creation, Marketing Funnels, Customer Retention, and the “flight manual.”

With more and more content being added, why do I say some people are going to be “pissed off?”  Well they are giving…

Kajabi Can’t Bake a Cake…Yet.

I am wrapping up my visit to Kajabi HQ this week and my mind is swimming with ideas.

For those of you that don’t know, I decided to get on a long plane ride and make my way out to Kajabi headquarters to meet the team, get a few ideas, and see what they have in store for Kajabi users. Even as a beta tester in 2010, I had not been out to see them.

As usual, I am sworn to secrecy on some things, but here is what I can say about my trip at this point.

Commitment and Passion –

These are the two biggest qualities I look for in people when I first meet them. Sure, talent and ability are big, but I assume those qualities are already present.

I know plenty of talented people that have the “ability” to get something done – but without commitment and passion they always fall short of excellence.

I can convey that these guys live and breathe Kajabi. It is not some side project they are wrapping up and moving on to the next shiny object. These guys are in it for the long haul and it is great to see that level of dedication (that is Kenny and Travis in the photo with me).

“You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet”

I have to admit, I really love a lot of the features that Kajabi has. I kind of figured, going forward, they would pretty much be tightening up a few things, adding a couple cool widgets, and let it go. I couldn’t be more wrong.

What is Kajabi? I mean, I know what it is now but after listening to the Kajabi team talk about upcoming implementations (yes, this is the sworn to secrecy part) we are in for a game changer.

Don’t get me wrong, Kajabi won’t be replacing your Easy-Bake Oven or turning your tap water into gasoline, but it will change the way you look at everything with regards to marketing on the Internet. You truly will be limited only by your ideas, not implementing them.

Take Flight –

Every once in awhile there is a place for Internet entrepreneurs to get together and exchange ideas. Hey, there is plenty of business out there and I have no problem sharing information to help someone else – it all comes around. Flight Academy will be just that for Kajabi users.

Kajabi announced Flight Academy just a couple weeks ago, but I think it is the “missing link” for some Kajabi users – a place to get solid usable information as well as brainstorm new projects. Stay tuned for that one.

Revisit your ideas –

My biggest personal takeaway (other than needing to work on my basketball game) is that I need to throw every idea I have had in the last 10 years back on the table.

Having seen how many ways people are using Kajabi really opened my eyes.

Sure, we know what it looks like in the hands of the Internet Guru launching to thousands simultaneously – but what about the other guys? The ones that are using it for quick affiliate-only pages, membership portals, or bonus portals. Marketing with Kajabi covers a lot of ground when you think a bit outside the box.

So what about me?

First off, I am going to spend the next couple weeks outlining a plan to add new things to my business.

When I say “new things,” I mean projects that make money using Kajabi. Ideas that have been on the back burner have no excuse residing there any longer – it just too easy to implement them.

If you are already a Kajabi user, hang on; it is going to be a wild ride.

If you are not already in the Kajabi family I would say grab your boarding pass now. Order Kajabi and be ready to be a part of something fun, innovative, and the best part, profitable.

*Disclamier: The Godfadr is not an employee of Kajabi. He is an offline turned online entrepreneur that had the opportunity to beta test Kajabi before release. He spends his time riding his Harley, traveling, and enjoying life but knows you have to pay for that lifestyle somehow. He hates talking about himself in third person and will always give you a straight answer – even if it is not the one you want to hear.

No, they’re not closing down for good, but just like when the lady at the food court runs out of free samples before you get there, you’re about to miss out:
