Why creators are making the switch from Memberful to Podia.

Here are some more of the reasons creators have shared for why they’ve chosen Podia to power their business.

I had been wanting to start a fitness membership site that would allow me to track my students and drip my content and Podia has allowed me to do that easily. It’s user-friendly, especially for people like me who aren’t graphic designers, and the best part is that their customer service is super responsive and ready to help you if you get stuck.

Podia vs. Kajabi: 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, digital downloads, webinars, and memberships. Both give you advanced email marketing capabilities, a site builder, affiliate marketing, and 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, 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 need to run multiple brands under one pricing plan, prefer to edit the HTML/CSS code of your site rather than use a no-code editor, and don’t mind a steep learning curve, we encourage you to give both platforms a try and decide for yourself!

Another thing to consider is where you expect your business to be a few months from today. If you plan to sell no more than 3 products, and get fewer than 1,000 customers, then you’d be comparing Kajabi’s Basic Plan at $149/mo to Podia’s Shaker Plan, which has all the same features (plus affiliate marketing) for just $79/mo. However, while Podia’s Shaker plan is unlimited, Kajabi’s Basic Plan limits you to only 3 products and 1,000 customers, so if you grow (and we hope you will!), you’ll soon be asked to pay $199/mo for Kajabi’s next tier. Meanwhile, Podia’s Shaker plan grows with you, and you’ll never need to upgrade to unlock the next stage of your business’ growth.
