Hey Skool... buddies? I wanted to share how I'm using a free group funnel to move people to my paid community... using Skool of course! Now, I'm not the biggest fan of writing, I get bored fast.. so I'm mostly gonna bullet point this AND I made a Loom video here: Happy to answer whatever questions you like. Ok, so main things to know: - I run a company called AJ&Smart, we're a digital product studio and innovation training company (we help companies like Lego, Google, GE, Amex etc with their digital products) which also sells online courses (mainly to teach people how to Facilitate Workshops) - For the specific online course side of the business, we use Skool to funnel people from ads/youtube videos (example)/books and other activities into a Free Group called "Facilitator Club" - Facilitator Club is focussed on helping consultants in the product/innovation/tech space move from being people who have to execute tasks for their clients to just being involved in the strategic/up-front work like "ideation". We also have a lot of people from other industries in there too who just want to move toward strategy and away from execution. Here's the group: (Please only join if you think it might be relevant). - This free group is full of little things to keep people engaged, primarily using the Leaderboard system to help people "unlock" courses and resources. These actually help people to preview the quality of our paid stuff. - The free group acts as a "holding pattern" for people to move to our paid group which costs €6000 and now almost has 1000 members. - The free group isn't the only way people are getting into the paid group, but it's definitely been an amazing place to "warm people up" before moving them to the paid group.

Hi Jonathan thank you for sharing. Do you want your VSL and eBook funnel optins to join the free community or paid?

@Jonathan Courtney ah ok! Thanks man!
Really don’t understand
Hey guys I really don’t get it.. When MY leads sign up to my Skool Group they have to enter their email addresses to create a Skool account. WHY aren’t those emails accessible to me, as the ‘owner’ of this lead, just like that? To my leads Skool is just an ‘engine’ , the inderlying platform, like Clickfunnels, powering my community in the background. Btw asking them AGAIN for their email in the signup questions is totally redundant - seen from the lead’s perspective. “Why am I asked my email again?” In fact, same with the SK thumbnail in the iphone app. My leads and customers are looking for the brand they signed up to - which is not Skool. Let me know if the above makes sense? Thanks!

@Vianney Wilson Hey Vianney thank you for your reply. The fact is we invite OUR customers and leads to OUR community. We are not inviting them to a platform called Skool. On top of that, our customers and leads are not interested in other groups at the moment they sign up. Which again creates confusion if they are asked again for their email address.And finally we simply feel we already OWN those emails, because the only reason these people are signing up to Skool is because of us asking them to sign up.
QUESTION: how can I get my members email adresses?
Maybe I am overlooking.. how can I get to see email addresses of my community members when I want to email them in person?

Skool App
Is there a way to modify the SK icon into your own?

@Dom Thorpe Thanks! I use this too for my clients. Way better branding than the app
Skool has an App!
Skool's official iOS App is live. Download it here on the iOS App Store, by scanning this QR code, or searching for "Skool Communities". It has push notifications, links open in the app, + more. Our Android app should be live in the next 30 days.
