Kartra Pricing – Learn How To Save On Marketing Software Costs

This article takes you through the various Kartra pricing options from Starter Edition for as low as $79 per month.  I also take you through the features that are included in all Kartra editions.  Kartra is unique in that you don’t have to pay extra to unlock specific features. Everything is included in the Starter Edition.* 

Kartra has been my marketing tool of choice for the last two years.  Kartra is an all in one marketing platform which has few direct rivals, but we do provide comparisons with some of the key players in this space.

If you are an affiliate marketer, Kartra has one of the most generous commission plans available, paying affiliates 40% commission for the lifetime of the customer. 

If you are interested in trying Kartra out, they offer a 14-day trial for $1. I am a Kartra affiliate and will receive a commission if you sign up using one of the links on this page. Kartra pays me directly, so I doesn’t cost you any more. 

To show my appreciation, you get access to my Kartra bonus package.  More on this later in the article.

These prices are updated for 2020.

Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you.

Kartra Value - What Can Kartra Replace?

This was the first question I asked after I went through the marketing material.  It is a good way to measure how valuable Kartra could be to your business.  I started to do the math.

This is the software I was already using or planning to use to manage my online marketing:

  • Landing Page Software:  Leadpages  $25 per month
  • Email Automation:  Drip and ConvertKit  $41 per month or $29 per month
  • Form Creation: Drip, ConvertKit, and Leadpages all offer this
  • Course Hosting:  Teachable  – $39 per month
  • Shopping Cart:  SamCart – $99 per month
  • Affiliate Management:  I had been testing iDev Affiliate.  $39 per month

However, if you add up all the above products you are looking at a starting cost of almost $250 per month.  Kartra Pricing for Starter is $99 per month!  That is a saving of nearly $2,000 per year.

Note: If you are on a limited budget and are not sure if you will need all of Kartra’s features, I recommend Leadpages $37 per month (or $25 per month if paid annually) and ConvertKit $29 per month so you have landing pages and email automation covered.  If you are confident that your business is making money, I recommend you use Kartra from the outset to avoid having to migrate pages and email sequences at a later date.

All Kartra Pricing Includes Landing Pages

 

This is the area where I have spent most of my time. I am a big fan of Leadpages, mainly because it is so simple to use. However, Kartra’s Landing Page Builder is equally easy to learn.  I have put together a quick training video, which shows you how the Kartra Landing Page Builder works.

Here is the link to my Kartra tutorial: Kartra Tutorial – How to Create Landing Pages

It is worth pointing out that this video is hosted in Kartra and uses Kartra’s video player to display the video, which brings me on to the next section

Kartra Can Be Used To Host Your Website

If you are looking for a great place to design and host your Website, you can use Kartra for this, as many people have. Check out this thread on the Kartra Facebook Group, started by my good friend Jared Warner.  Many people are hosting their Website on Kartra using the prebuilt website templates.

It is much easier than battling with WordPress, leaving WordPress to do what it was designed to do – host your blog, if you have one.

Kartra Pricing includes Email Automation

Having an email list is one of the most important assets any business can have. With Kartra, you have pre-build funnels to build your email list and powerful email sequence builders to ensure you keep in regular contact with your email list, automatically.

You can segment your email list according to their actions. If they open specific emails, click links or make a purchase, they can be added to or removed from a particular sequence.

Kartra Pricing Includes Video and Course Hosting

If you use videos in your marketing or you are looking for somewhere to host a video-based training course, Kartra has this built in. You can upload your videos into playlists and categories which makes them easy for you and your audience to find.

Again here is a quick video tutorial showing you how to upload a video to Kartra Video Hosting.

Here is the link to my Kartra Tutorial: Kartra Tutorial – Video Hosting

There are alternative course hosting platforms. Teachable is one I particularly like.  As a standalone product, I would say Teachable has the edge over Kartra. It is designed for a purpose, and it shows.

Kartra Pricing Includes eCommerce Features

Another cool feature included with Kartra is the ability to set up products for sale. This can be products you deliver electronically like paid courses or physical products you ship to your customers.

You can set up pricing and recurring membership payments and integrate with forms and landing pages as part of a sales funnel. It is also possible to manage affiliates who will promote the product for you in exchange for a commission. Want to know more, please check out my video overview below.

Here is the link to my Kartra Tutorial: Kartra  Tutorial – Adding Products for Sale, Affiliates and Setting up your Shopping Cart

Kartra Pricing Includes Membership Site Features.

If you offer a membership plan to your customers, Kartra can manage this for you.  You can set up different membership levels within Kartra and grant access to resources according to the plan your customers have signed up form.

This is just scratching the surface. Kartra has so many built-in features that it is difficult to cover everything out of the gate. What I have found is that is it all very easy to set up. You don’t need to pay $$ setup costs like with some other marketing platforms.

Please check back over the next few weeks as I will be adding more Kartra tutorials and reviews of the different Kartra modules. In the meantime, if you have seen enough to make you want to give Kartra a go click on this link to sign up for a $1 two week trial and get access to the Kartra launch promo discounts.

Kartra Features, Kartra Modules, Kartra review

Kartra is designed to scale as your business grows. The pricing for the higher end Kartra plans that are designed for people and businesses with larger email lists. The core Kartra features are the same throughout all these plans so there is no migration of data required.

Kartra Pricing - Conclusion

Kartra has the potential to really shake up the online marketing space. It completes with existing marketing platforms such as Infusionsoft, Clickfunnels, and Kajabi and is competitively priced.  It also combines the functionality of several standalone products as I presented earlier in this article, but at a much lower price point.

Where I believe it has the most to offer, is in the small business space, especially businesses that have strayed away from online marketing because it appears overly complicated and expensive. The thought of learning several different software tools or, worse still, hiring experts in each, has put many business owners off.

Kartra, with its common interface and workflows, takes away much of this complexity. If you are a business owner, who is on the fence about getting into online marketing, I recommend you give Kartra a go. If you do, please drop me a note in the comments section and I will send you my “Online Marketing for Offline Businesses” course, free of charge.
