Obviously Kartra is NOT the only sales funnel and all-in-one marketing automation platform out there.
There are tons of other tools and resources that are available today, some are great and some aren't.
I'll share a quick overview on how they differ from Kartra and why I think is the better solution for different types of situations.
Kartra vs Clickfunnels
Clickfunnels is currently the MOST popular and i'd say the KING of Sales Funnel software as popularized by one of my favorite marketers, Russell Brunson.
There are over 100,000+ users or members of Click funnels compared that with probably only a few thousands for Kartra.
So you'll find more people promoting Click funnels because it's more popular. It doesn't mean that Click funnels is more powerful though.
Kartra has overtaken Click funnels when it comes to tagging, segmentation and email marketing automation.
And with the lower price point of only $79-99/month, I can see why a lot of marketers I know are switching from Click funnels into Kartra.
With the $97/month plan for Click funnels, you'll still need to pay around $29-$49/month for an email marketing platform like ActiveCampaign or Convertkit.
The biggest advantage of using Click funnels is the community of funnel builders behind the software called ‘Funnel Hackers'.
Russell has built this massive Community of people who are die-hard funnel builders.
With the Funnel Hacking Live event that happens every year, people who are using Clickfunnels are aiming for the two-comma club award. A prestigious award for those who sold over 7 figures worth of goods with the Click funnels platform.
With that being said, you'll find more developers, freelancers and people who needs Click funnels and use Click funnels than those who are using Kartra right now.
I've written a very detailed review of Click funnels here, so you might want to check it out as it's still my #1 recommended sales funnel builder and automation tool.
Kartra vs Leadpages
Leadpages used to be the #1 page builder and software that I use (probably 2014), but Click funnels has obliterated that spot already.
I won't even recommend using Leadpages if you're comparing it with Kartra or Click funnels.
Leadpages is just a landing page platform and is not a fully built sales funnel tool. But if you just need a managed and hosted landing page platform Leadpages can get the job done for you. Read my complete review of Leadpages here.
Kartra vs Builderall
I've tested and tried Builderall and the interface is wonky, buggy and confusing. Avoid Builderall at all costs and focus on Kartra instead.
There's are reason Builderall is a lot cheaper than Kartra.
Kartra vs Salesforce vs Kajabi
Salesforce is an enterprise level of marketing automation tool. The cost for salesforce is in at least thousands per month.
It's definitely not an option for entrepreneurs and small time business owners.
Kartra is one of the best solutions for course creators and coaches, but Salesforce is more suited for Enterprise level accounts that needs account managers to support their online marketing needs.
Also, if you're already using Sales force and have been able to pay for it, you'll probably want to avoid the hassle of migrating tools if you decide you want to try Kartra.
Kartra vs Infusionsoft (Keap) vs Ontraport
They used to be one of the top all-in-one marketing solutions out there, but Clickfunnels has overtaken it as the top sales funnel software.
I would recommend that you stay away from Infusionsoft and go with Kartra or Clickfunnels for your marketing needs unless you're already using Infusionsoft (now Keap) and it's not worth the hassle of moving over.
Kartra vs Thrive Architect vs Elementor
Thrive Architect is a plugin from Thrive Themes and similar to Elementor PRO they are both WordPress plugins that allows you to create landing pages inside your WordPress blog.
Check out my reviews on Thrive Architect and Elementor PRO for a more detailed analysis of these WordPress landing page plugins.
You're not really able to compare these plugins with Kartra because these plugins lack the abilities to take payments and secure membership pages.
Kartra vs Divi Builder
Divi 4 themes and plugins is another WordPress based landing page solution created by the team from ElegantThemes.com.
Just like Thrive Architect and Elementor PRO, it is just a tool to build beautiful landing pages inside WordPress. It is not really comparable with Kartra and I'd recommend that you avoid Divi builder because of speed issues.
Kartra vs Optimize Funnels
Optimize Funnels is the latest sales funnel builder from the Optimize Press team. It was launched together with Optimize Press 3.
You can save a lot when you use Optimize Funnels as you can see here in my review, but you'll lose the automation part that Kartra has.
If you are really tight on a budget and would like to explore sales funnels without committing to a monthly obligation with Kartra, then Optimize Press with Optimize Funnels (on the suite plan) is the way to go.
