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 a One-Time fee instead of a monthly recurring fee. Although this is good for the initial entry point, one hopes that the developers continue to sell enough to maintain and update the program (not much motivation if you have already sold everyone). 

2. WishList Member

Wishlist is a premium WordPress plug-in. Although no where near as robust as the “Big K”, it could be an alternative for those people that are fairly light on content and want to stick to their WordPress site and foundation.

Wishlist integrates with numerous autoresponders, and even offers “teaser content” to try and convert non-members. Easy to install and merges with most shopping cart systems.

The upfront cost (One-time fee) includes a “full year of support” although I am not sure where you go from there.

3. wp-Member

The lightest of the three but worth mentioning for those on a serious budget.

wp-Member is also a WordPress plugin that allows you to create registration customization, password protection for content (posts, pages and categories), content teasers, and automated membership management for unlimited membership levels and subscriptions.

Frankly, wp-Member would not be my first choice for membership site software.

If you have read any of my Kajabi Reviews you already know I’m big fan. But if you really need a viable alternative, I would look at either Optimize Press or Wishlist.

Competition is good. We like to keep an eye on all of them (even have affiliate links in this article for the ones we think are good). Kajabi is an incredible system that provides not only outstanding features, but an amazing level of support. It is nice to see a couple other options out there…just to keep everyone on their toes and setting new trends!
