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.

    I like your process, do you determine/qualify which product is right for them on that 45min call or is it done during the call booking?

Hey Fam! Just wanted to check to see if there had been any updates or posts I may have missed regarding scheduling posts on the community tab? I like to create Quick Tip posts and would love to batch them in! Thanks for all your hard work @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe @Nick Guadagnoli @Alex Siegel

I saw that there are now multiple classrooms in this Skool community now, this is AWESOME! I am curious if these are just for testing purposes or if new/exclusive content will be updated inside these classrooms. Love the idea of Skool HQ and other future events that could happen, very cool stuff.

When I switch the thumbnail on my Bunny video it doesn't change in the Skool embed. Steps to reproduce: 1. Add Bunny video to Skool. 2. Load Bunny embed in Skool to verify thumbnail. 3. Change thumbnail in Bunny admin interface. 4. Refresh Bunny embed in Skool. Thumbnail has not updated.

    Try deleting the video link, saving, the repasting the updated link that has the video thumbnail.

I'm considering hosting my course on Skool, right now it's on Kajabi. I have over 50 videos and 250+ members who've paid £997. Problem is, someone can easily share my entire course as the links aren't hidden behind the group entry screen. I really want to host here but I need to ensure my content doesn't get pirated. My course has been requested a few times on piracy websites but it's hosted privately on Kajabi so it's well protected. I'd just love this feature on here. Just a screen that says - "You must be a member of this group to see this classroom" Would love to hear your thoughts @Sid Sahasrabuddhe @Nick Guadagnoli

I noticed you have the option to create a public or a private group, where public groups can be found via the search. Are there any free groups besides this Skool Community? If so it would be nice to see other Public communities via recommendation (or even a Public tab) because I have not been able to find any via search.

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe could you touch up on public groups? People have access to the modules as long as they don't have a level or specific requirement in place?

  • 1 like • Aug 24

    @Mareya Ali There are public groups, but unless you have the direct link its hard to find. I am wanting to create a 2nd Skool that is public, but I am not sure if I like the links/text visible by non members (at least inside modules)

Would it be possible to add in auto module complete when they click on to a new section? It is really hard to track course progression if they don't click on "Mark as Done" They can always go back and uncheck Mark as Done, or even add a favorites button next to a lesson for them to go back to.

I noticed you can still see module descriptions and links, even if you don't meet the requirements to access. Would it be possible to hide these? I plan on using the level access to give away templates which would require this information confidential until they meet the requirements.

    This is a really great community, you are in the right place @Dom Summers

Would it be possible to create a filter/category for posts containing media files, or links attached? I notice posts with media get a lot more engagement, and I can see a lot more people wanting to filter just for these types of content.

After implementing this prize strategy, our engagement increased tremendously. After the first one the community didn't need it anymore because it went so well but we continued it just to reward the most active member.

    If you create open up Skool with Safari/Chrome and click the share button, you can add that URL to your home screen as a sort of "app"

I am having a problem using Bunny.net's video streaming capabilities. In order to use my content on my website, I have to disable Direct Play. Then what you would do is convert the HLS url into an MP4 url. Problem is when I do that I can't use my videos with the MP4 conversion (unless I turn Direct Play back on). Doing this disables the videos on my website, which is definitely causing a headache. Would it be possible to allow/enable mp4 urls?

    I may end up just using the embedded on my site otherwise I can NOT disable download.

  • 1 like • Aug 11

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Yes they are fast, I was working with them last night and got as far as I could with them. I can only use embed w/o giving away the security of the content. Direct link with MP4 disables MediaCage DRM, and for some reason direct play does not work on my site (built with Elementor). I was having issues getting direct play to even work on Skool, but have not tested since disabling it. My best bet for now is unfortunately to create a Vimeo account to host videos on my site, unless Elementor or Bunnynet updates integration. That is why my question earlier about adding specific access to community categories could help alleviate some of these issues. Allowing me to host all my content here on Skool instead of splitting it free vs paid.

Would it be possible to add a only members of certain level & only some members have access to specific categories in the community section? This allows the classroom membership only feature much more exclusive and drive members to engage just to get more access or pay for the upgrade (or separate course).

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Yeah, I didn't figure it would be an easy task to implement. I was just thinking if I have a community that is free to join, but I want to add paid content for the same community it would be nice to have a category they can ask specific questions w/o being available to the free members. Discussion under a video module inside a classroom might be the only option for the time being. Just weighing my options going forward, trying and testing what works best.

    Awesome notes, I agree with all of them! As for Names I came up with a few different themes and then chose interesting ranks/names that would fit that theme. - Bronze > Silver > Gold > Plat - Beginner > Apprentice > Contributor > Advisor - Tribe ranks - Military ranks - Space ranks :P I use video games and my favorite shows (or popular ones) to help influence rank choices. Hope these help!

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe If you Unwatch a post then someone new comments will you still receive a notification?

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? 💰💰💰

I am getting a glitch when duplicating a module. Duplicating is not the issue, but once you save or close the module and try to re-edit the module, it does not open (in draft or published).

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Generally yes, this is for our Q&A sessions. So typically I duplicate the last one and edit the title (date), change the Vimeo link, and edit the new description. In this particular case there was a link to a file inside, and I deleted the file link (if that helps).

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Looks good on my end.

I am having 2 issues, the first one being security with the share link URL. Would it be possible to add a changeable password or put a time frame on invite links. This makes it easer when transferring platforms and from people leaking. My second issue is with the duplicate feature. I am not sure if this is a bug or when this change was implemented but duplicating now requires me to click 3 dots and move up many times before it is in the proper place.

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe So once the mass invite link is out, there is no way to change/edit it, add a pw, or add a X day usable link (similar to Discord)? Even of we change the Skool link?

    @Nick Guadagnoli excellent thanks!

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?

    So many great points, I love Metrics as much as the next guy and love the feature. Looking forward to how this could evolve the way we present information and increase consistency.

Would it be possible to add the Metrics button on the menu for Admins? That way you don't have to go to about > Settings > metrics

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!

    I just had 20 Zoom calls back to back, this feature would have been soo much easier for the group

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.

Would be great if Skool would be SCORM or xApi (Learning Management Systems standards) compliant so course content from other LMS systems can be imported to Skool.

    @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.
