When it comes to building funnels, ClickFunnels has long held the crown for being the best and most popular funnel building option. When you think of funnels, you probably think of ClickFunnels.
But, in recent years, a newcomer, Kartra, has started to gain massive momentum. Many people are saying it’s even better than ClickFunnels…. Is that true? Is Kartra better than ClickFunnels?
As someone who has used both Kartra and ClickFunnels extensively, in this article I’ll help you answer:
What is the big difference between Kartra and ClickFunnels?
What is cheaper, ClickFunnels or Kartra?
What is more powerful, ClickFunnel or Kartra?
What is easier to use, ClickFunnels or Kartra?
And… Finally… Overall, which is the BEST option for you and your business?
Let’s find out…
Note: This comparison is based on my personal experience using both ClickFunnels and Kartra. For full transparency: I’m affiliates of both ClickFunnels and Kartra, so I am not motivated financially to promote one over the other. This article will be based on my honest experience using both systems and I’ll be giving you both the pros and cons so you can decide which solution is best for you.
Ok, with that out of the way, let’s get started…
CLICKFUNNELS VS KARTRA: WHAT’S THE BIG DIFFERENCE?
ClickFunnels is designed primarily to build landing pages for your funnels in the easiest and quickest way possible. AND as a bonus, ClickFunnels (through what they call “FunnelFlix”) give you lots of training to help you succeed.
Kartra is designed to be an all-in-one online marketing solution for your business. In other words, you get a similar landing page builder like ClickFunnels, but you also get email marketing software, lead automation, video hosting, advanced marketing analytics, online payment options and more, without needing to purchase additional software.
My original worry with Kartra was that because it does a LOT of things, it won’t do any of them very well.
However, I’ve found this (for the most part), to be false.
Kartra does an excellent job of allowing you to build funnels, run email marketing campaigns, host your videos, take payments online and more.
Side note: the only extra feature in Kartra I don’t like is “Kartra Calendars”. Yes, it works, but from a design perspective it still doesn’t look as good as Calendly, which is what I currently use to allow potential clients to book sales appointments straight in my calendar.
ClickFunnels has decided to primarily focus being the best landing page building software… And then requires you to integrate whichever 3rd party software you prefer for other parts of your funnel (such as email marketing, video hosting, etc).
What is ClickFunnels thinking behind this?
ClickFunnels would rather focus on what they do best (building landing pages), rather than do everything else mediocrely.
This does sound reasonable, but, I have found a big problem with this approach.
A funnel is NOT just a few landing pages linked together. A great funnel includes many pieces working together behind the scenes, like email marketing, automation, video hosting, etc.
For many non-techy clients that I’ve worked with over the years, having to link together many different pieces of software for a funnel to function properly, makes ClickFunnels slightly more difficult to use and needlessly more complicated (not to mention more expensive too).
Whereas with Kartra, it provides an all-in-one solution so you can do most things, if not everything, out of the box… Without needing to pay additional software fees to 3rd parties.
So, that’s the biggest difference between ClickFunnels and Kartra.
Now that you know the BIGGEST difference between ClickFunnels and Kartra, the BIG question becomes…
BIG QUESTION: Is it better to use ClickFunnels and then integrate other 3rd party software to do whatever else you need it to do? Or is Kartra’s all-in-one solution as good (or even better) than integrating 3rd party software?
Well, let’s find out….
In this video comparison, I’m going to look at:
ClickFunnels vs Kartra: Which is cheaper?
ClickFunnels vs Kartra: Which has more and better features?
ClickFunnels vs Kartra: Which is easier to use?
ClickFunnels vs Kartra: Which has the best sign up bonuses?
ClickFunnels vs Kartra: Which one is the best overall?
As a side note, in my own business, I used to use ClickFunnels for landing page software, ActiveCampaign for email marketing and Vimeo for video hosting and I love that now I can do everything through one software – Kartra – all at a lower price.
