We built the #1 public Skool group in the directory so far: https://skool.directory/public Here’s some things I’ve noticed that Skool rewards for the ranking system (although I have to be honest, we never tried to optimize for this): 1) Make amazing content. This is non negotiable. The content needs to be your best and it needs to be free. 2) Start a challenge. Attaching a “challenge” to your front end offer is the best way to create engagement. Instead of pushing people to a VSL, push them to a Skool group that facilitates a challenge. These are LIVE events on Zoom. You can charge for these or do them for free. In order to access the challenge, they need to be on Skool. That’s it. Everything else will fall into place. Lmk if you have any questions.
The best education is some degree of these 3 elements: 1) content 2) community 3) coaching That’s it. In traditional education, you have their version of that: 1) curriculum - lecturing 2) classroom - group projects, lunch breaks 3) raising your hand in class I was honestly hesitant to drop Facebook for our community because of how much market share and trust they have. However, once we saw that Facebook was just a place for ads, we decided to control our own lead flow and we finally got off. Major problem, how would we transfer our entire group over to Skool while expecting them to add another social media app to their lives? I focused entirely on TRANSFORMATION. Most communities, LMS, and learning environments truly don’t get that right. They focus on entertainment or education. But not transformation. If you can have the perfect blend of community, content, and coaching, it’s like mainlining transformation into the veins of your customers/students. Skool is the only platform that can do this. It incentivizes group owners to focus on the only thing that matters: transformation. Literally every single subject matter expert that we work with, will be using Skool. Non-negotiable. Not because it’s a better mouse trap, or a cool interface, but because it’s set up to deliver transformation with every group member. Skool will only get better. You’re missing out if you don’t take the plunge. -b
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.
