Now you can earn 40% of monthly recurring revenue by referring people to Skool. Refer 3 people and Skool becomes an income stream, not a cost. Watch the video below to see how it works. How to refer people: Go to "User settings" --> "Referrals" tab --> Copy/paste your referral link --> Done! Note: You can only refer people if you've got a paid group on Skool. Check it out and let us know what you think? 💰💰💰
Could I get some clarification on the filters because I notice that the filter always defaults to recent activity but never shows me new posts only the most engaged posts. Since I engage with every post, I get notifications when someone comments on older posts but never new ones. Is there a way I can change my default filters, or turn on all notifications for a group (as admin or reg member) without having to filter to newest posts everytime? I find myself never using recent activity because it is never new or "relevant" content.
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 came across this issue that if I open up skool via mobile and click on notifications, it often times selects the number of notifications as if I'm selecting the number to highlight it. When it should just pull open notifications as intended, I think it may be a bug with the # not being linked or registering.
Now you can add a shared calendar to your Skool so your members can see what's happening, when, in their local timezone. Members can add events to their personal calendars with a click. If your community does live Q&A calls or live events, this feature is perfect for you! Watch the video to see how it works. Enjoy!
Hey, I read a few previous posts about this but haven't seen one in awhile because maybe no one has run into this issue yet. I had an Admin give gems to a lot of members not realizing the value of what the gem represents. Would there be any possibility of revoking gems and potentially a notification/warning for an admin trying to remove a gem/rewarding one. Probably a notification to the user that lost the gem to as for an explanation as to WHY the gem was revoked.
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe It's very easy I set mine up as well, but if you have more than 50 modules I would definitely hire a VA. Do a couple yourself so you are familiar with how the process works then have them do the rest.
Awesome watching the replay, I love that you guys are openly communicating what changes we would like to best serve our community. Looking forward to more updates, and hopefully I can make the next live!
Would it be possible to add in admin requests in the notification tab/email feature? I had multiple people requesting to join the group but I didn't notice because I was not currently on the Community Tab. Engagement comes in just fine via email & notifications but nothing for moderators/admin requests.
Where there be any plans to implement points for engaging on other peoples posts in a community? I notice you can only get points if YOU are the one creating a post, but there doesn't seem to have any incentive for others to engage on that post.
@Nick Guadagnoli me personally I don't really care about points, but if there are rewards and incentives for engaging on other people's posts it could increase their likely hood of trying to add value. I agree it can be a slippery slope where people race to comment on every single post, maybe giving them a point after x amount of comments on other people's posts. To clarify if you make a post and I comment on your post, and let's say my comment gets 3 likes, do I get points for that engagement or only the person who originally created the post/question?
I just recently had my YouTube account shut down for no reason, and without a warning. All of my clients trainings were there. About 30 hours worth of training content that I rely on to onboard my agency clients. Support videos. Everything is gone. Lesson: pay to host the videos on Vimeo, loom, wistia. Hope this helps someone
@Hervin Alvarez are your videos unlisted/private so only can be found via your link on the course? I wouldn't recommend YouTube to host a course just because of the endscreens/recommended videos. Vimeo is my preferred choice at this time!
Hey all! I run a course and mastermind with the community currently hosted on Discord. I've been following Sam for a long time and I'm considering switching even if it does cost me an extra $99/month BUT I have a couple concerns and I was wondering if you could help me answer them... 1. The videos have to be hosted outside of Skool. This adds more cost, complexity and I don't like any of the players except for Wistia which is another $99/month. Thoughts? 2. There's no app. Have you guys seen a lot of mobile engagement in slack/discord etc? 3. Lack of engagement. The primary reason for choosing Discord is that a lot of people use it for social engagement regardless of my program. I've made a couple posts in accelerator here on school and haven't seen any engagement. I do think this is due to users having to remember to check yet another website. Have you seen the same? Any help would be appreciated!
1. Wistia feels overpriced for what you get, I understand why some of the analytics can be useful but imo not enough value for the cost (I use vimeo atm) 2. Mobile app is in the works (little bird says later this year, but no road map as of yet) 3. I agree, I believe it is because the only way to see posts/engagement is because you only get notifications via email, or if you are on the site. Which does create a loss of engagement vs an established app/platform people are already familiar with. May I ask - is your discord a private group/public? You could also post a link inside skool directly to discord (and vise versa) so users can bounce back and forth between engagement and the actual hosted content.
Maybe there's a way we can have bonus points every time people reach 100 points. I was just thinking of ways to motivate people not just to get to the prizes, but to feel like there was a way to make it a little more attainable and to reward them just for getting more points. I'm currently in 2nd place for the accelerator, and the girl above me is #1, but she's so far ahead by hundreds of points that I feel she deserves an extra prize or points or something. I feel like people that put in that much work deserve something a little extra opposed to getting the same prize if they were only 1 point ahead of 2nd place. I'm thinking reward them for their work efforts, not just for their results ya know?
Would it be possible to have a group notification when a member achieves certain level milestones? Recognition is rewarding to most people and having a popup on the group on who has achieved next level would be amazing!
Would it be possible to add the Save button at the top near the "X" (close) that way you don't have to insert link > scroll > save > next module etc. It would definitely save time especially if you have to bulk upload.
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Transcripts aren't completely necessary for my content, and most of the modules I had already setup. Later I added the videos, but the other reason would be if someone swaps video hosting like I did, its tedious to have to go back in for each video.
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Would it be possible to add the cancel button at the top near the "X" and where the save could be. There is a bug with vimeo that if you update a thumbnail after the link is already on a webpage you have to remove the link then re apply it. Having to go through every module again to delete>save>reapply>save and every now and then hitting the wrong module but have to scroll to cancel as well just adds more resistance.
On discord there are plugins that require people to check a box, or agree to the terms before they are even allowed in the community. Would it be possible to add something similar to groups? My request is simple - Require a student to fill out a small form (give an introduction about why they are here and hobbies etc) to help build on my personal relationship with them.
@Ted Carr Rules don't require you to look or even acknowledge that the page exists, its kind of off to the side and easy to miss. Adding a simple opt-in form would add resistance to the tire kickers and give students the push to start engaging off the start. Plus it makes it easier to network and collaborate people if we share interests (sports, music, other hobbies)
Is anyone else noticing a big decline in FB group engagement this year? It's impacting the 'warmth' of my leads and making it increasingly difficult to sell to. Debating whether or not to move leads to another place to nurture before bringing them into a paid skool community group. How is everyone else nurturing their leads?
When using the mobile version of Skool (which I LOVE so far) I noticed I can't tell which "section" (module/set) I have open when selecting "< Course Menu." Would it be possible to highlight the current open module/set when looking at the over view, similar to the desktop view module highlight.
I know @Sam Ovens does not want to build another zoom, but is there a way we can display a ZOOM or GOOGLE MEET LIVE inside Skool in the same way we use vimeo/wistia to display it inside skool This would bring SO MUCH value and so much engagement in our community.. but from a technical standpoint, i don't really know if it's doable or not
Hey Everyone, I'm currently running my company with Kajabi (course) and a private Facebook Group. Our FB Group engagement is excellent. That said, I really like what @Sam Ovens and the team have built with Skool. For those that have transitioned everything how have you found customer engagement on Skool compared to Facebook Groups? Any insights are appreciated. Thank you, David.
