    HUGE congrats to everyone on the team over at Skool. Even you behind the scenes guys. From what I could see the main problem they were trying to solve for was "engagement". And this is proof they've knocked it out the park. Nice work!

I haven't sent out an email broadcast in months. This week there has happened to be two announcements that need to be broadcasted. Very frustrating to write out the whole post only to be told I can't broadcast it.

    Reason this is frustrating: The 2nd announcement is an announcement that needs to be announced soon. It's timely. And the longer the time passes, the less effective the announcement is. So the time delay is important. Solutions: 1. Change to 6 broadcasts per month 2. Just trust I'm not going to spam my community

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.

Someone in my community is asking if they set up a community on Skool, and you guys don't like what they post, will you ever ban a Skool? They believe in freedom of speech, and want to know that people can say what they truly think without fear of getting banned.

If you go to joinsuperhuman.com you will Get redirected to my Superhuman Skool group. Cool right? Most people will have issues with redirect as there is no SSL certificate if you redirect from your domain registrar. So that means if people do https or even www they will get a message that your site is not secure. That’s bad. To solve this I recommend a redirect service like t.ly - for just a few bucks you can have a custom redirect url for you’re domain, track click and create other urls for specific parts of your classroom, zooms or whatever. Most important thing is that you’ll have SSL so it will be an https redirect and you won’t have those issues that most people do with redirecting through their registrar. Its really straight forward but I’m happy to do a video walkthrough if there’s any interest. Just throw a like or comment “redirect” on the post and I’ll send you a loom vid overview. Happy redirecting! -PM

I'm in the process of moving my huge video course over to Skool, because I think it will be a better customer experience. (I won't lie, it's a mega pain in the ass downloading all that video content and uploading to bunny.net, also re-titling all of the content, even when I've got a staff member to help... Sorry Sam) But I think it's for the best. If you've done this before, have you seen an improvement in engagement / student results? Do you have anything to back it up? Thanks!

To scale a business, start a movement. What's at the core of a movement? A community. Therefore a community should be at the heart of a business.

    @Nevin Sabet No. Like a community. What makes a church a church? It's not the building. It's not the donations. It's the people. Example

It scares me that Skool could kick me off the platform and I could lose everything I built. Unlikely, but possible. I think we should have the option to download all emails of community members in CSV.

Has anyone using Skool as a lead nurturing platform? As currently I am using Facebook group as a nurturing platform then generate call from there.

I recently sold a business on Empire Flippers and am about to build a new one. I believe that Skool will do everything I want. In fact, if I can choose to create a post that automatically also emails the same content to all members, I really see no reason for an email newsletter. Is scheduling of posts on the roadmap? If so, I want to build one open and searchable Skool membership and offer another that is paying members. Is this a common method of using Skool?

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.

Imagine you have a free group. If members invite 5 friends, they unlock a free course Imagine you have a paid group. If members invite a friend that pays in full, they get $1000

Create a post teaching users of your group how to add a web shortcut to their homepage. Broadcast it to your whole group. Example: https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/replace-tiktok-with-synthesizer-skool Feel free to copy and paste my instructions: "IPHONE. Option 1: 1. Open Safari 2. Go to https://www.skool.com/YOURLINK 3. Tap Share (the square with an arrow pointing out of it) 4. Tap Add to Home Screen (If you don't see it, tap Edit Actions) Option 2: 1. Open Shortcuts 2. Tap + 3. Tap + Add Action and search Safari/Chrome 4. Select Open URLs in Safari/Chrome 5. Tap URL and insert https://www.skool.com/YOURLINK 6. Tap the three-dotted icons to name the shortcut & add an icon (attached) ANDROID: 1. Open Chrome 2. Go to https://www.skool.com/YOURLINK 3. Tap the three dots in corner 4. Tap Add to Homescreen"

Currently anyone can request to join. I'd like to make people answer a few questions, so that I can see answers to determine whether I let them in or not. Is this possible? If not I'll have to create a solution mixing Google Forms and Skool. Thanks

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?

We want an engaged group. We know that us engaging in the group is one of the biggest factors at creating an engaged group. But it's easy to get lazy/forget to engage. Solution: try to make your Daily Activity all Dark Green. That mean you have to do at least 10 activities everyday. Ever since I started trying to do this, I've engaged much more frequently in my community, and my engagement has increased a lot.

    @Matt Korthuis I'm not sure exactly what Skool counts as an "activity". Perhaps @Sid Sahasrabuddhe can help you here. I'm guessing: - Posts - Comments - ?Likes?

Do you offer leaderboard incentives? If so, what are they? I'm thinking of offering: - 1-1 Coaching Call (Top Level) - Case Study Bonus (Show students a live example of what's working now in our field) I'd thought of sending merch (hats, tshirts etc) but I don't think it really adds value to students lives' Let me know if you've come up with anything good!

    I think merch does add value. You want to create an identity for your course. "I am a ______" And associate certain beliefs/traits/skills with that identity. E.g. I am a Consultant. A consultant works to add value. Avoids all distraction and stays focused. Sells high-ticket etc. Then by creating merch around that identity, when they wear it, they act out those beliefs/traits/skills.

  • 1 like • Aug 9

    @Matthew Morgan maybe. My brands pretty solid and defines a new identity. So I think people would wear it.

Would love to white-label Skool

In my opinion this looks kinda messy. I don't want to clutter my classroom with full courses that only contain little bonuses. To keep things simple, perhaps it can access a locked post?

    @Yusef Smith Yeah, good idea. I'm not too upset with the 'likes', but I can see how it could be cool to manually assign levels based on something like a roadmap. Also you should've used my Skool affiliate link ;)

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Great. I hope more people follow suit. My mind races at the potential of Skool if it focuses on marketing communities. Excited to see what you come up with either way.

This was their response: https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/stay-on-skool-or-move-to-discord Thought it could be useful for anyone considering Skool, and also useful feedback for @Sam Ovens, @Nick Guadagnoli and the rest of the Skool team.

    How many paying users do you have?

  • 0 likes • Feb 12

    @Sam Ovens Why won't you say? Genuinely curious.

Now you can monitor the health of your group with three simple metrics: 1. Total members: How many members are in your group over time 2. Active members: How many members visit your group on a monthly, weekly, or daily basis 3. Daily activity: How active your group is daily over a 365 day period I think we all agree, the most important metric is active members. It's a measure of engagement. Check out your own group metrics and let me know what you think in the comments?

I was signing up to @Andrew Kirby ’s synthesizer group and because I am a skool member it wouldn’t let me sign up with my email. I got a response saying: this email is already in use or subscribed - and yes im subscribed to skool community but not to andrew’s group. I didn't want to use another email but I did to see what would happen. Why can’t I use the same email I used to sign up with here? Was it a bug?
