In 2022 I: - Spent two days in LA with Sam Ovens - Spoke with Alex Hormozi twice on Zoom - Spoke (and worked) with MrBeast - Spoke with Cole Gordon ($2m/m) - Met Bas Slot in Lisbon ($1m/m) My conclusion after all of this was simple: This industry is changing… The smartest people have noticed, and are already taking advantage of this shift. Everyone else will be left behind. Watch these clips (5-10 mins) to spot the shift. - Clip from Sam Ovens - Tweet from Alex Hormozi - Another tweet from Alex Hormozi - Clip from Cole Gordon (making $2m/m+) - Clip from All In Podcast (all four are Billionaires) - Clip from Alex Hormozi After watching those clips, what shift do you see? Here's how I see things changing: - Direct Response → Brand - Ads → Content - Selling → Giving And to me, this is a GREAT SHIFT. Thank fuck this industry is FINALLY maturing. It's no longer enough to have flashy marketing and great sales skills. You have to build a brand. Over the past few months I’ve hinted at this shift quite a few times, and how I think you can use it to make $100,000/month profit (and well beyond). So I thought I'd bring all the resources into one place so you can learn it all for free. - 33 minute Loom video explaining the "new model" - 21 minute Loom video explaining how I got 600,000 subscribers using this model - Free course that Sam promoted explaining the "free group funnel" method - Loom video I sent to Alex Hormozi about using trends to grow an audience when he asked me to help him grow his YouTube - Google Doc explaining the content system that grows your audience in just two hours per week - Notion page explaining the lessons I learned about YouTube growth from speaking with MrBeast

    @Dan Bolton Thanks again for your feedback. I appreciate you. I've changed the post so no more DMing people to get the resources, I've included them as links in the post above.

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.

    How I feel about Skool team's fast iterations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTeJdWGSQPg

Affiliate signup on Skool Community The Skool Affiliate program is one of the best. I’ve built a number of tools in order to be a better affiliate of Skool and to help continue to grow this amazing community. I noticed recently that when creating a group from here, Sam always gets the affiliate credit. I think this is slightly unfair to the affiliates of Skool who are getting users to signup. Skool Community is one of the best entry points for users to see the value of Skool as a whole, and as such I send a lot of traffic to this group. I believe this group should honor pre-existing affiliate codes for users who ultimately choose to signup from here. I don’t think it’s fair to punish affiliates who want to show their potential signups this group. Does anyone else agree? Affiliates, please let me know what you think.

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.

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.

I just want to let know the Skool team, that @Sid Sahasrabuddhe is always overdelivering, helping me in the chat with my questions and he is so fucking fast. The customer service @ Skool is insane and i think I never experienced this level of customer service.. (maybe amazon when you are not happy with a product and they don't ask any questions ahaha) Thanks a lot Sid

@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!

After your community becomes active, they both become almost unusable. Quick fixes: - Once I've been on a post, and read through it, remove those notifications. They don't need to be there. I've already read it. - In chat add "sort by unread" These two features would be cool, but still the feature I'd love the most would be to incentivise community members to invite their friends. If you have a paid community, imagine your members could invite friends and automatically receive comission. If you have a free community, imagine your members could invite friends to unlock courses. The biggest problem most coaches have is traffic. This feature would help solve that.

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?

    @Frank Kern I'm in a tonne of communities. Here's the best ones I've found: https://www.skool.com/synthesizers - for Synthesizing (content creation) - hosted by me https://www.skool.com/righteousness - increasing testosterone righteously - hosted by @Aleks Fidurski https://www.skool.com/kollege - for info businesses - hosted by @Blake La Grange

Groups become overpowered if they encourage connection. Especially in-person connection. Imagine a map that has a pin where every user is (if they want to share location). Would make it so much easier to connect with people in the group. Am I the only one that would love this?

A while ago, I optimised to grow the number of members in my community. This was a mistake. Quality of discussion dropped. The core members of my community left and started a group chat. The community started to suck. So now I'm rejecting 95%+ of people who apply to join the community. And focusing on quality again. The quality of your audience matters a lot more than the size of your audience Was prompted to share this when I saw the results of @Blake La Grange's poll.

    Impressive

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!

    @Bilal Malas A member of the community volunteered to host

Hey Coaches/Consultants, This is my first post in this group so here's a quick introduction, I'm a self-improvement content creator who moved his efforts from TikTok (340k+ following) to YouTube last year after coming to the realization that generally TikTok audiences aren't as engaged and dedicated to their creators as YouTube audiences. That being my experience, I started my YouTube from scratch a year ago with only a whopping 10-30 people from my 340k+ TikTok following converting to my channel (proving the point of TikTok not being the best place to create an audience). Having exhausted the quantity approach to content on TikTok with about 2-3 TikToks a day, I decided I'd venture down the quality route on YouTube and see if that was the superior path. After one year on YouTube and dedicating myself to learning everything about creating quality content, I can assure you it was (at least for me). I now have 48k+ subscribers and created my own blue ocean of content called the "moviementary" where I fused movie + documentary elements to tell entertaining stories that educate. These moviementaries I make now have hundreds of thousands of views each and within the last one called "How to Escape the '9 to 5'" I launched my own Skool community called the "Freedomist Movement" which is an extension of my worldviews and ambitions into a movement my audience can stand behind and a philosophy that my channel is centered around. I made the barrier to entry high being they have to watch a 30 minute presentation and get a password right to join. My rationale behind that was to filter out all low quality people and that it's better to have an active engaged private group of 1000 people that qualify than a public group of 5000 with a wider range of personalities to moderate with varying investment to the movement. Not to mention, the private community feels adds a layer of mystery that makes people want to join and those inside feel cooler about. Although the beginning was shaky, I was able to easily get a team of moderators with one post and now we found a way to effectively filter out all low quality people with 100% accuracy. The community as it stands is very active and many people are networking/sharing information with each other all around the mission of the Freedomist Movement.

Currently there are only 3 ways to get points on Skool... 1) You can make posts in the community and hope to get likes on your posts. 2) You can comment on posts and hope to get likes on your comments. 3) You can reply to to comments and hope to get likes on your replies. But what if you're an introvert or lone wolf who doesn't want to make posts, comment, or reply? Or what if you're just mega focused on course work and feel the community is a distraction/waste of time? Or what if a community is 'dead' and doesn't give you the likes you deserve? Or what if you don't speak English that well and suck at interacting w other people in english? How can you get points, level up and access new course material or the bonuses then? You can't. Or at least, not very well. Because you're relying soley on other people's approval and validation for your progress. And that's an issue. Because most of my membership materials & bonuses get unlocked as you level up... and I've already had several members in my community reach out to me and tell me they want to level up but don't want to make posts, comment, or reply just to get points. + I'm part of a Skool group with only 15 members, only 5 of which are active, so it makes it incredibly hard to get points & level up. So what's the solution? What if you could also get points by watching course material? Call em "Progress Points" Or what if you could also get +1 point each week just by remaining a member? Call em "Member Loyalty Points" Or what if you could also get points by completing a quiz? Call em "Quiz Completion Points" These are just some ideas. Happy to hear yours below.

    I like this. We should reward action as well as interaction.

Well done @Andrew Kirby! I launched my Skool group a few weeks ago, so these hacks I’m able to implement immediately 🙏 Just one question though, how do I get into your Synthesizers Skool? That’s the only thing I would make more prominent ✊

I know Skool is awesome and I use it for our paid containers. Curious to hear what everyone is using to host their free communities. FB groups are a big no for me at this point. Discord seems too chaotic.

What would happen if instead of showing "New comment 6m ago" you actually showed the new comment on the homescreen? Would it increase engagement, or just lead to clutter on the homepage?

Hi there! I saw the amazing high ticket funnel from @Andrew Kirby from a few months ago in here and it looks really great. But does anyone in this group use skool for low ticket memberships ($47 /month or $99 /month)? I'm looking for recurring revenue without making sales calls and make a big community for entrepreneurs looking for learning specific marketing tactics. In the future I'm going to implement high ticket, but for now low ticket $47 /month membership with community, a course (monthly updatet), q&a's and other cool stuff.. My funnel in mind: traffic comes from Youtube Ads and Youtube organic -> VSL -> Email automation -> Salespage -> skool! I'm curious if there are low ticket membership communities on skool? Thanks in advance.
