Kajabi Communities Review & Example
When you are a course creator, one of the most important aspects of your business is going to be building a community. It's often said, people come for the course, but they stay for the community.
I have firsthand experience to tell you that's 100% true.
The problem is that most people are really still stuck on using Facebook groups. I did that for years and the hard thing about it, is that you didn't own the group (Facebook could report or ban you at any time) and it was very hard to automate enrollment once business started to scale.
Enter, Kajabi Communities 2.0.
If you watch the video below, you will see and example of my Kajabi Community.

Kajabi Communities Overview?
Overall, I like the look and feel of Kajabi Communities. It works seamlessly on desktop and has a nice app for Android and Apple users to get in and out on their phones. I wish it were within the same app as Kajabi itself, but they kept the main app for courses and added a new communities app for ease of use.
I'm going to share some of the features I really like about Kajabi Communities 2.0
Ease of automation.
When I started my community, I gave one year access. I'm not a fan of permanent access, but that's a different story. With Facebook, myself and then down the road, my assistant, would have to manually remove clients over time. With Facebook groups, it's VERY hard to oganize members and get stats.
That's not the case with Kajabi Communities. I can automate trials and clients will be removed if they decide not to pay to continue to have access to the community and it's benefits.
No TOS Issues.
Not getting random messages from Facebook about how a post I made 5 years ago was 'inappropriate' is a blessing. I can go live, play music, do whatever I want without having to worry that I'm going to end up in Facebook jail or have my group shut down.
While I admit I liked the ability for students to leave comments AFTER I went live, the live room is a great substitute. It works much like a ZOOM call and you can record the sessions and make them available for replay afterwards.
You can even make certain students moderators and they can host their own live get togethers if they want which is super cool.
I did a student recital and we pre-recorded all the performances and we all watched them via live stream together. It was amazing to see everyone throwing up heart emojis and sharing their support in the chat.
Circles or Topics.
I always found Facebook very hard to organize. With Kajabi Communities, you can create separate topics. For example, we have a Gear topic where people can talk about guitars and gears, a Q&A channel specific to questions about my course, a student performances topic for students to post videos, and a general chat for everything else.
There are so many more features than these listed above. But these are some of my favorites.
If you are looking to build a solid community, I would recommend signing up for a free 14-day trial to poke around at Communities 2.0.
