Kajabi is a comprehensive platform with a diverse collection of tools and features.
However, it can be challenging, even for more established users, to understand exactly how these tools work and use them to develop a website to its full potential.
It is hard to think up business strategies and integrate them into your site design and marketing funnels.
That is why Kajabi Experts and Consultants exist. These experts can help you get the most out of the Kajabi experience.
Do You Really Need One?
Honesty and transparency are our core values, so we’re not going to sell you services you don’t need. That’s why you need to consider if you really need a Kajabi expert.
Compared to some other course platforms, Kajabi is relatively easy to use, and they also provide a great deal of free training.
So, if you are diligent enough, you can manage the entire platform on your own without having to hire any expert help. However, there are some key circumstances in which you could benefit from some outside expertise:
- You need help with a specific one-time project (i.e., a voice actor for a video)
- Your business has grown, and you need some extra help
- You are looking to scale your business to the next level, but you don’t know where to start
- You need someone with a specialized skill set (ex.video production)
Kajabi experts are basically like employees, and hiring them raises the same questions as hiring employees. Do you have enough revenue to cover the expenses? How long do you need them?
The Difference Between Kajabi Experts & Consultants
Kajabi experts and consultants are not the exact same thing, though there is often a bunch of overlap.
A consultant is a general term for anyone who gives some specific kind of advice for running a business. Consultants may or may not actually handle specific operations in businesses or might be around in a more advisory capacity.
Kajabi experts, in contrast, specialize in helping operations on Kajabi.
Kajabi experts can occupy a more conceptual advisory role, but they also include people who can build, maintain, and help structure your site. You can think of Kajabi experts as a subspecies of consultants/experts that are trained at working with and using Kajabi.
