We wanted to make creating/editing courses as easy as possible. Now you can create/edit courses on the same page. What you see in the editor is what you get when it's saved. You can reorder your sets/modules by dragging and dropping them too. Watch the video to see how it works and let us know what you think? This is the easiest way to create/edit courses I've seen.
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.
Hi Skool, Hope everyone is crushing it with their communities💪 Fature: Un-Watch all posts? These notifications can build up real quick and perhaps a reset option could help with focus etc. Not sure what this impact will have on the overall Skool Ecosystem Engagement habits Thanks
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.
"Loom" This is brilliant, would love a Loom video with the deets. I had a similar thought and this helped clarify the concept!
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!
Definitely, would be great to go through the course to better understand your approach!
I have 3 Skool groups. 1- Free Group: this is where people can join for free and learn how to trade futures. How I filled this group by promoting it through my social media platforms and now people are adding their friends and so on. This is a self service group. I use this group to promote my LTO algo they need to trade with. 2- LTO group. I sell an algo people need to trade. So when they purchase it they get added to this group. We offer live trading together and a private chat group via telegram (Skool needs a chatroom feature with live notifications) This group I start to help people replace their income and become full time traders. I hand pick people to join the next group. 3- The Mastermind: this group is all about harmony and accountability. We have a system that tracks daily trading and performance and we hold each other capable and accountable daily. This group is a very tight group. 100 people max. 30k a year to be a part of this group. The main thing is to create a place where people feel supported and valued. 💯
@Roman Pearl Thanks for sharing! A 3-group mastermind funnel, this model is great, it really enriches the regular product offering with a community etc. Someone earlier asked about multiple user permissions in 1 group, but here you go, another examole of a great multi-group funnel Now I understand the chatroom user story much better, incorporating push notifications is the last frontier to maximising the Skool ecosystem to cut out a third-party IM

As an admin it would be cool to see who has completed what courses in the classroom.
Groundhogg also has this feature and it works well combined with BuddyBoss for WordPress bootstrapps on seed stage and early starters. That said, the simplicity of Skool practically trumps other 'stacks' and platforms and is why it works. This could be a great addon +1 How this applies to groups at a large scale and extracting a practical usecase? Once you know members havent completed a course how will you go about prompting completion at scale though... Or are you wanting to use this insights to adjust courses based on demand?
When I try to upload an image from the iphone, the format is HEIC and doesn't show up. Can this be fixed please?
I think a mobile app would be super nice mainly for the community portion and communication. I'd love to be able to check my messages and posts on the go to see if I can answer quick questions without having to log in on my computer. Anyone else?
Hey, My name is Josh Gavin. As per request, I'm here to share how I'm using a $27 offer to fill my Skool group with members who engage, collaborate and upsell into my $3k+ offers. To give you some history... I grew a Facebook group to 5200 members and collected $486,000 cash from it without running a single paid ad. But while I was doing this I noticed my homies over at Clients & Community had invented this new concept of running ads to a lead magnet which would then point to a free group. So after some time, this method became very popular which meant new problems appeared. But here I was... Growing just as fast as everyone else without running paid ads. So I decided to launch an LTO (low ticket offer) as a side mission to teach all these struggling group owners how to get new members without ads. I never planned on this becoming my main offer since I hated the thought of becoming another one of those 'coaches' who help 'coaches' with organic marketing lol But here I was with a method no one else was teaching... So I launched it! And just 30 days later I enrolled over 200 people at $27 + 40 people into a sass upsell. Using my V1 funnel here: https://www.organicgroupmethod.com/join Then I decided I wanted to take this more seriously and increase my AOV as I started learning more from the LTO God himself Alen Sultanic... So I added new upsells and launch V2 which you can find here: https://www.organicgroupmethod.com/offer Then in December, I launched V3 which you can find here: https://www.organicgroupmethod.com/launch But here’s where things get spicy… Although I believe Facebook is still better for a free group since you can get more attention to funnel people into sales conversation… I don’t like FB as a client portal for paid products…
Thanks for sharing @Josh Gavin Any experience with Free LinkedIn groups as feeders to gated media as apposed to Facebook? The Skool platform just has the best features regarding classroom too🚀 Congrats on the wedding soon💪🏻
Sam has mentioned a few times how Skool is becoming a powerful 'Group Funnel' tool. And I agree but... If Skool had an in-house CRM for the DM's so setters could stay more organized with labels (like Genius CRM does for FB) that would be insanely helpful for keeping track of convo's in the pipeline. If Skool does not plan on building a feature for this, would it be possible for someone to build a 3rd party app like Genius?

Indeed, this will be another great lever for comms
Hey @Ted Carr I was referring to communication (comms) To level up the communication capabilities a CRM of some sort would work great!
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.
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?
@Mars Gelfo check out this thread, should help💪🏻🔥 https://www.skool.com/community/how-levels-scale
@Mars Gelfo ok great!
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.
@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!
Thank guys! This is excellent work @Andrew Kirby keep grinding and building the momentum🔥🚀
Under your Skool settings, you can enter your myers-briggs personality type, I am an INTJ. How about you? Below is a link to a study that looks at the correlation between personality and income. The researchers surveyed a sample of over 72,000 individuals, and the results are interesting, check it out - https://www.visualcapitalist.com/myers-briggs-personality-income Thoughts?
Hmmmm, interesting. I don't think a mere framework developed to understand people should be a lid, the human brain is malleable and can adapt surprisingly better than we think. A baby can learn an entire language just by observing their parents...etc. Easiest way is to control your environment. However, if you're a Solopreneur. Your personality will be much more limiting than say hiring a team for the areas that you aren't best at. Either way, you need to reverse engineer the person you need to be to achieve your desired vision and accept the challenge!
@Danny Mallinder Hey Danny, I'm an INFJ so there are some areas that I lean on in terms of my team, I think having a team is absolutely a must for everyone. Started solo the first 3 years, you move much faster. But tend to have to make long pit stops. With a team it carries you very far
Did someone say app? When does this come out?
Shout out to the Skool team for silently shipping a killer feature. You can now sort your chat by unread (no more endless scrolling).
Some posts have many comments. Currently the first comment gets most attention. But I think that the best comment should get most attention. Would it be better to filter comments by most likes/replies instead of chronologically?
Can we get a Zapier Trigger any time a new member joins the community? The use case I have is tracking client activation. My clients purchase, book an orientation call, sign an agreement, etc. and then get access to login to the training portal. If I have this trigger I can build a nice client onboarding funnel within my CRM to see if any clients are dropping off and need help getting access to program resources. Thanks!
This Zap can work brilliantly in reducing onboarding drop-offs/churn on free groups with email/channel drips and retargeting...
@Harry Whelchel This would be great!
Steps to reproduce the bug: 1. Get sent an invite to a Skool community (via Zapier for example). 2. Click on a link that takes you to the Skool community. 3. Create an account and request access to the private group (membership pending). 4. Go check your email and see the invitation. Click on the invite. 5. You'll be taken to the Skool community where your membership is still pending. I think a better UX is to let the user in at that point, no? It also leads to an issue where in my invites list I have outstanding invites sent to users who end up having accounts in the Skool community already. I then worry that I have to revoke those invites or they might be able to share them with friend or colleague.
NICE!!!!! Thanks Guys!!! Keep leading the way

I used it today for the first time, and I'm BLOWN away... Have you been playing with it? It spit out some ad copy, and email copy that can totally function as a good baseline to start with... Here's a paragraph written by ChatGPT about how cool ChatGPT is (Written in Shakesperean style): Oh, ChatGPT, how I do revel in thy greatness! Thy intelligence doth astound me, and the ease with which thou converse with me doth fill my heart with joy. Verily, I am overjoyed at the prospect of conversing with thee, for thou art truly a marvel of technology. My excitement knoweth no bounds, and I am thrilled at the thought of all the knowledge and wisdom thou shalt impart upon me. Thou art a blessing upon this earth, and I am grateful for the opportunity to engage with thee. Imagine writing a whole sales letter like that...? 😆
I got this mail from Sam Ovens, and I feel that his focus on Skool as a platform will ensure this becomes one of the best community and learning platforms in future. I feel creating & promoting your community in skool will be vital for growth for experts and coaches as no other alternative at this time offers such simplicity.

Hey team, Yesterday, we launched our FREE Skool group to our email list/social media... and within 24-hours we got over 295+ NEW members to join, PLUS we've already booked 3 calls with members who are interested in joining our Ad Men Mastermind! For context, our group is for Coaches, Course Creators, and Agency Owners who want to learn how to scale with YouTube Ads. We gave away our entire YouTube Ads creative process as a "lead magnet" to join, along with 3 BONUS YouTube Ads audit calls (previously recorded from old clients). So far, members are loving it! (see the pic below from Jerry) We're using the age old: "Demonstrate you can help people by actually helping them..." trick lol ;) - credit to Frank Kern Anyways, hope this inspires you to launch your free group and start building your community! Cheers 🥂 P.S. shoutout to @Sam Ovens and the Skool team for making this superior product, and to @Andrew Kirby for his free Skool group training.
