Thank you for your time and explanations.If you got specific questions let me know - there is so much to go over it is hard to know what to cover.
Well, yes and no. Obviously not in course form (as I still have to make that one) but I have been working with clients on this subject (fertility issues) one on one quite a bit and have a lot of success with it. And since I work with all sorts of health issues otherwise, I know my techniques and methods work.Are you already making sales?
If you want to test selling a course, host it somewhere cheap and easy. @Fox started on Teachable before moving to Kajabi. I started on a Thinkific and stayed there. There’s also Gumroad, and probably loads of others.Well, yes and no.

The question is; can people do it without me?
Interesting. I’ve not switched platforms so that’s good to know.Kajabi is nearly the same price for the lower plan when you first start. So if money’s an issue they will nearly be the same either way until things grow.
Whatever you pick I don’t recommend changing. I did this and it wasn’t ideal - you will have to change the payment details also which means getting everyone to renter their credit card info. Major headache and you will end up losing customers.
This has been super helpful to reread. Thanks @FoxHa, I feel pretty qualified to talk on this since we (me and my business partner) have spent a LOT of hours working in both.
First off - course creators have made millions on both platforms so whatever you choose can work. 90% will come down to what you do elsewhere and your product/customer experience.
Some good examples of top course creators on Teachable would be Parker Walbeck (Fulltime filmmaker) and Gregory O'Gallagher (Kinobody). Both of these people have made millions on Teachable.
On the Kajabi side a top creator would be Amy Porterfield or Sean Cannell (Think Media) - again both have made millions.
So Teachable is cheaper to start with for sure and is also easier to use.
Its very basic to figure out what you are doing and get a course up and running.

Each section is very intuitive and with just clicking around you can figure out 90% of it within a day or two.
If you are launching a basic course (structure wise) and won't need much upsells/customer segmentation/back end offers Teachable is probably the best choice. It is simple for both you and your customers and won't require much admin or maintenance work.
Kajabi, on the other hand, is a lot more advanced. You have a lot of integration with apps possible and it's heavily built towards more advanced marketing (I'm talking within the platform itself). If you want to build funnels, additional offers, different customer types and use access etc - Kajabi is better suited towards that.

Why I switched to Kajabi is to have a lot more control over the marketing and also the different types of products I wanted to offer.
Teachable is good for like a 30 part course on X but if you want to have a library with a lot of videos in different sections it starts to get way too crowded. You can "group offers" but that can quickly run into issues also.
So with a straight forward course, Teachable will be fine...

But once you want sections then Kajabi is a lot better...

I prefer the user experience on Kajabi also - its cleaner and quite easy to navigate around.
Also, Kajabi can link into your emails and create tags and segments. This means over time (if done right) you can have a lot of control with who gets what offer/email as your user number gets higher. You can also trigger "events" to have automation when users do certain things.
I don't think one is really better than the other - more different tools for different types of courses.
If you want a simple course and basic landing page - Teachable.
If you are going to have a much more advanced type course/membership site than Kajabi would be the better choice but will require more work up front.
