Do you want to create a paid subscription community on Skool? We're looking for 100 creators to join a private beta where you'll work with the Skool team directly to test features, give feedback, and collaborate with us to make your own paid subscription community. Please complete this survey to apply. Are you excited? We're excited. Share some excitement in the comments.
We're working on subscription billing, and we need a few creators for the private beta. Interested? Give me a money GIF in the comments below if you want subscription billing.
love it whenever a new update comes around :)
@Andrew Kirby and @Ted Carr have been hanging out at Skool HQ. Lots of exciting stuff is coming your way! And... Did you know Ted is a "fruitarian"? He only eats fruit. He has boxes of it at our office...
@Andrew Kirby stopped by Skool HQ the other day to hang out. We talked about Skool for 6 hours. He's doing some interesting things with his free group "Synthesizer School". He basically funnels his audience (social, email list, etc.) to his free group + mini-course. He builds a relationship with his audience in the group, and occasionally promotes his paid course. It works! The funnel: Audience → to Community → to Customers. Anyway... I got Kirby to create a "Free Group Funnel" mini-course sharing his process. If you have any questions, comment below, and I'm sure Kirby will help. Enjoy!
this is great stuff. so good to see @Andrew Kirby and @Sam Ovens together
I want to know.
A world-class community platform where you can create your communities to provide knowledge and/or join other communities to learn, network with experts in the area of your choice and have lots and lots of fun through interaction & collaboration.
@Brooke Nolly well said
Hi Skoolers! Setting up my group and would love to maximize the membership questions feature (among many other things) and was curious to know what questions you guys ask your members. I figure it would be a bit different than the typical membership questions asked on FB, so curious to know what everybody's come up with!
email, phone, youtube channel link which is relevant for my niche
@Abby Flores what's your niche?
We just shipped some new gamification features to make things more fun! • Custom level names: Personalize your group by naming your levels. • Unlock courses at levels: Unlock a course or something of value when members hit a high level. • Leaderboard redesign: Now you can see your progress and what you can unlock as you level up. Watch the Loom video below for more info on how it works and how to set it up for yourself. This is an experimental feature we're playing with, so we want to hear your feedback! Try it out for yourself and let us know what you think?
@Sam Ovens thanks though, i would love to understand the logic though, how the system calculates it as it's different for Skool Community vs Wetube so it's by the no. of members in the community then? or something else?
Were these removed? This feature was awesome for user feedback tied to content. Hoping some version of it comes back.
We've had reports of a cat showing up in some groups. We're looking into it!
@Sam Ovens hey dude I’m typing this on my iPad so it might read weird. Anyway, a couple years back you ran an ad and the image for it simply said “this is an ad.” It might’ve only just said the word ad. I can’t remember. I think it had a blue or purple background. I think the text was white. This has to have been maybe three or four years ago. I just remember thinking that it was really awesome. I don’t remember the body copy. Do you remember if it worked?
If you could wave a magic wand and add one feature to Skool, what would it be?
hands down the #1 feature should be to get more course analytics like being able to see which course is getting what completion rate or by segment which student population is able to do which course completely. which course has more engagement etc. how many students / members at any given point of time are stuck in which course from long and didn't complete it etc.
what all metrics we can track? is there a dashboard or visualization where i can see the progress of my students - course completion rate, which modules are most watched vs least watched etc.?
Thanks @Sid Sahasrabuddhe the specific metrics that i have in mind are the following: 1. course wise progress sliced and diced by modules and probably by category of students too if we can enable such categories 2. visualization that shows just like you have the calendar there where we are able to see the engagement by the students on the community so similarly, the visual which depicts which module has which % of students active on currently etc. 3. which student is stuck on which module last with a notification where a community manager could ask a question to student if there's something that they need help with and the reason they are not going ahead 4. all of this will give us more intelligence to really enhance the courses 5. metrics which picks up keywords from what people are discussing and creating a word chart will also help us identify the key sentiment of the student across community for the group creator and community manager to understand the pulse of the community and the key theme of the discussion etc. @Sam Ovens @Nick Guadagnoli
@Warren Gibbons thanks
Hey everyone, Introducing Skool Kompanion - A Free Mobile App for Skool I’ve made a number of tools for Skool over the past few months such as Skool Directory or the Members Export Plugin. I believe in Skool the product and ecosystem, and am excited to see it grow. As with directory, this project was inspired by seeing numerous requests about a Mobile App. In response I’ve gone ahead and created Skool Kompanion. Skool Kompanion is a simple mobile app that allows you to access Skool as you would from a browser. It also gives you access to real-time push notifications for posts and comments at the tip of your fingers. Over the course of the last couple of weeks — I have found myself more engaged with Skool due to the way notifications keep me looped in. I think this mobile app with notifications will lead to higher engagement within your groups. I encourage everyone to try it for some time, and see how much of a difference it makes. I think it will be an essential tool in order to stay engaged and connected with your groups. At this time Skool Kompanion does not support Android, and notifications do not support chat. These are things I may look at in the future depending on support and feedback. So please try it, and let me know if you have feedback.
Our niche is helping business owners leverage youtube to build leads and multiple revenue streams doing what they love through a 'proven' and an 'accelerated' method that we call the 'Youtubeneur' Method. I am honestly living my passion through my Free Skool Community🏫 and get to share and provide 5 key value🌟 nuggets to our community members apart from collaborating and having a lot of fun: V1 --> Hack Youtube Growth V2 --> Build Online Influence & Authority V3 --> Generate Organic leads leveraging Youtube V4 --> Create Multiple Revenue Streams💰 V5 --> Do all this following what you love❤️ We have an entire process of generating leads for our Skool community as well as nurturing, engaging and retaining them and finally converting them into paid customers if they like to advance their skill sets and accelerate the progress in the niche.
This is the analytics of my youtube. There are about 80k views / 60 minutes, and 96% of traffic coming to my youtube channel is from Mobile Phones. Now while attending courses, your customers may definitely log on to desktops. Still, interacting with one another or seeing notifications will be much better from a mobile app. Skool is a real user-friendly app, but I believe the engagement is getting a big hit, especially as the members will need to be on a desktop which doesn't happen during most parts of the day, especially if the customer segment is not an outlier or skewed due to an inherent exception of your niche. I think we need a MOBILE APP as a PRIORITY. What do you guys think?

@Erika Kulpina not something i want to promote to my members..?
Hello everyone, first, thanks for all the valuable content and feedback posted. I am really new and watching lots of videos. There one thing I am not clear about. How do we enroll people we know in our free community? Do we have the option to offer join my group for free or create your community? I am confused. Thanks for all your answers in advance.
Hey @Lucie Woods welcome to the community. once you create your own community which needs to be paid. you can invite people for free by sharing an invite link. You can enable membership questions to filter anyone who applies to join as well. in your community, you can keep free and paid content both and you can unlock paid content only for the paid members. you can control this through zapier or manually if the community is small. let me know if you need more info. Cheers
We just completed 1 MN Subscribers on Youtube, and in just the last 15 days, we have 15,000 more subscribers, which means the methods 'do' work. Well, one of the challenges was that our youtube channel falls under the niche of 'social awareness', which is very different from our courses/consulting niche (on hacking youtube growth and leveraging it organically for business growth). But then, we have created a layer of a free programme, i.e. mentorship, which we promote on our youtube channel and from mentoring, we nurture and segment our leads for the relevant offers. Looking forward to using our youtube channel now to identify leads for our flagship course on 'hacking youtube growth and leveraging it for business growth and to get them into our free community on skool Let us know if you have any ideas/suggestions for this and if you think there is a better way to convert our subscribers into customers.
@Gull Khan Thanks a lot. Yeah sure, you could either join our free skool community or check out our flagship course
@Col Devine haha. thanks
A strategy that you can use for your mastermind which I've been inspired from Sam Ovens & Andrew Kirby. Hope it helps.
I made this fun little video today. It explains what Skool is in 2 minutes. Check it out!
Is there an impact on community / comments when you move the module from one platform to another for e.g. in my case i am moving my course content from Bunny.net to Loom. is there something i should know before i do that? Will the comments stay in tact?
We're thinking of doing a sick Black Friday deal. The craziest Black Friday deal we've ever done. Interested? Give me a sick GIF in the comments below if you want a sick deal.
I say keep exploring Skool, I keep joining new groups, I wish there is a feature where you can organize the level of priority programs, so the one with the most priority can be on the top. Is this something I can do?
Hey guys! As many of your know, I have a free Skool community. I started the community with zero intention of monetisation. I genuinely wanted to bring together 'my people'. But recently I launched an offer and... ... Drumroll please ... I made $100,000 in 10 days! With zero employees. And with only $99 in expenses (yes, Skool is my only expense apart from Stripe). From only one simple post. Would you guys be interested if I made a free course sharing how I did it? I could share: - Is a Free Group Funnel right for you? - How to START a free group funnel - How to FILL a free group funnel - How to MONETISE a free group funnel Comment a money related GIF if you'd be interested, so that I know who to send it to!
Congratulations! this is great news
@Andrew Kirby that's even better :)
Hey all. I've started using Skool as a front-end marketing group instead of a back-end product group. Is anyone else doing this? Attached is the model I'm using. The key differences to the model most in here use: - No ads - No direct outreach - No sales tactics - No content treadmill - Focus on audience building (specifically YouTube) - Focus on community - Using Skool as a marketing community, not product community I ran the new model past Sam and he said he liked it! I also asked for permission to post this here and he said yes. I think this new model is a game-changer for getting to $100k/m profit. I know it's quite difficult to get the full picture from the image, so if you need more info then just comment "Loom" and I'll send you a Loom fully explaining the model. Hope it helps.
Hi I have been away for a while and would like to be updated of how to use Skool? Where do I begin please? thanks all. Lucie
I'd love to know if any of the Skoolers took notes on this podcast and would like to share them with the group! It would be great! Happy Holidays!
After much testing, here are a few tactics that have been proven to produce a more active group for me: 1) Every week/month, create a post to welcome your new members to your Community. This brings them back to the platform that they might have forgotten about after signing up. Your welcome post could tag new members, include who the group is for, what's in it for them, free group resources, guidelines, CTA etc. 2) Take the time to send a message to each new member within a few days after they sign up. One thing that I include with the message is a link to the "Start here" pinned post, which gives them an overview of the group and what to do next. You can also ask them a question to spark an easy conversation. 3) Post a weekly community update, which can be anything related to the Community such as the groups growth, new courses, industry news, upcoming webinars, polls etc. Just make it consistent. 4) Encourage your members to post to the community board, and let them answer each others questions. Hold back from replying to a post right away, and give your members time to respond to each other. This is a small move that can really spark engagement and bonding between members. If you have a feeling that a particular member might add value to a post, tag them and let them take it from there. Works great! 5) Encourage members to share their wins and post their goals for the week/month. This is perfect because it's easy and helps to know what your members are working on/stuck with, which can spark even more engagement. Check in on the members mid week or month and ask how they are progressing on their goals. This goes a long way! Hope this provides some ideas for you. -Trent
Can i use my own domain like in Teachable ... its my subdomain.domain.com. It helps creating a strong brand recall amongst the students as well as on internet, google etc.
I'm curious, if you are running or planning to run whole your business on Skool, what tech stack do you use or recommend?
The Big 4 that i am currently using are: 1. Skool 2. Click Funnels, 3. Gsuite and 4. ClickMagick
@Nurlan Puchak pleasure
Just want to drop these pics here. The merch looks phenomenal. The sweater looks badass. Thanks skool team for the merch
