Podia vs LearnWorlds: What's right for me?

Great question! We obviously think we’re pretty great, but here’s an honest answer:

Both platforms allow you to sell online courses and memberships. Both give you unlimited courses, a site builder, and helpful selling features like coupons and payment plans.

But while LearnWorlds is online-course platform, Podia is an all-in-one platform that replaces many tools for your business, including your website builder, email marketing platform, online course platform, membership hosting platform, live chat tool, and much more.

The best platform choice comes down to what’s most important for you.

If you’re looking for an all-in-one platform that makes it simple to run your online business in one place, has world-class customer service, and is affordable whether you’re just starting out or growing fast, then we built Podia just for you.

If you are a large business or a university that has a bigger budget or want a more “corporate” feel to run your online courses, and you have some technical know-how to navigate the interface, then LearnWorlds might be a good fit.

Another thing to consider is where you expect your business to be a few months from today. If you’re just starting out, LearnWorlds “Starter” plan is slightly cheaper than Podia’s $39/mo Mover plan. However, with Learnworld’s $5 per sale transaction fee, their plan will get more expensive as soon as you sell just 3 courses!

Meanwhile, Podia’s Mover plan, which includes all of our selling features (plus online courses, email marketing, a site builder, and more) costs only $39/mo. And when you’re ready to grow your business by adding memberships, coaching, Zoom webinars, a blog, third-party code, and offsite buy buttons, our premium plan (Shaker) is just $79/mo.
