Will Skool ever make payment processing domestic to Skool? This is a feature I am SERIOUSLY looking forward to. The ability to make check out pages and payment processing inhouse via skool would be so incredible.
Hi guys, I assume from what I have heard there is no easy way to transition a large, already-made course into Skool classroom. It has to be done manually one by one correct? I have a potential client on Teachable, I have to sell them on moving to Skool :)
1. Sign-up pages with integrated payments (Recurring). Stripe connection. Automatically create new user accounts. Lock-out if payment is not made. 2. White label. Host on own subdomain. Rebrand it. “Powered by Skool” in the footer. 3. Integrated affiliate system. (Have this as a perk for users as they level up). 4. Unlock the next video once you’ve completed the current one. You can’t see or jump between content. But you must complete the videos to progress. 5. Video quiz - To unlock the next video. You must watch the video to learn the information needed to complete the quiz. Once you get all answers correct in the quiz you’ll unlock the next video. Love your Skool plan for the future Sam. Excited about Skool for 2023 💪💪
I wanted to achieve 100 days in a row of at least 10 activities in the Skool community - which I did. All posts were an indirect result (proving my point that activity more often than not can also lead to contributing) and hopefully I was able to add some value to the community that way. My goal in doing this was to better understand Skool as a platform and get ideas on how to build a community, as I had little exposure to this topic before. In retrospect, I consider my post on a streak feature to be the most important because besides the already existing affiliate program, I think that feature could contribute the most to Skool's growth. Of course, if Skool is to grow worldwide, multilingualism is a must. In the coming time I will focus more on my main business, so I won't have the time to be active here anymore. It was a great time with you, I wish you much success with your communities, businesses and in life. To @Sam Ovens , @Daniel Kang and the whole Skool team I wish that they absolutely crush it with Skool - which I'm one hundred percent convinced of). Thank you for many inspiring discussions.
Very good @Oli Reitmaier thanks for your posts and support here. Like Sam you have to focus on one core thing. Personally I was not so active here for the month, but back again as Skool will become the core focus of my offer, helping people create digital products and services from first creating a community.
@David Cavanagh yes by helping the entrepreneur setup tech stack, include Skool, add paid action plan based course with group coaching. These who want more direct help and any DFY work they are offered the mastermind
Hey team, we are looking at adding automated subscriptions (monthly payments) as one of our offers. We would like to add Skool as the manager of this however with the payment portal being seperate in past experience it has frustrated users. I know how to connect Thrivecart for one off payments but would love a native integration of sorts. Is something like this in the works?
Ok I have the perfect solution that manages your members on sign-up, takes subs, and manages payments for you and the user. Going to be doing it live and in my training for clients. We need some more beta testers. Dm me.
Last month the engagement in our FREE community was dropping off a cliff ... despite sending welcome messages, tagging new members, giving away prizes and releasing new mini courses at the start of the month. Initially our plan was to load up all of our best free resources and trainings into the classroom tab but it was getting disorganized and although members said there was so much value... they really weren't engaging with it. So I decided to simplify. I unpublished all of the content and turned it into a 14 day challenge. - Releasing 1 new challenge each day. - inviting members to post their work underneath the video... ... which then shows up in the community and people are connecting and commenting on each others posts in an entirely new way. Our new "challenge" welcome post got more engagement in 1 week than our previous welcome post did after 6 months. Making the transition from facebook groups as a funnel to a community funnel using skool has been a challenge but it's starting to pay off and the community is loving it. Anyways thought I'd share a win and something that has been working in our community that might help you in yours :)
We've got a SICK Black Friday deal for you... - Skool 1-year subscription (usually $1,200) - Wetube self-study course (usually $9,800) - Total: $11,000 This Black Friday - get both for $999. That's $10,000 in real savings. A true 91% discount. Interested? Join the waitlist here to be notified the moment it goes live. 🔥🔥🔥
After your community becomes active, they both become almost unusable. Quick fixes: - Once I've been on a post, and read through it, remove those notifications. They don't need to be there. I've already read it. - In chat add "sort by unread" These two features would be cool, but still the feature I'd love the most would be to incentivise community members to invite their friends. If you have a paid community, imagine your members could invite friends and automatically receive comission. If you have a free community, imagine your members could invite friends to unlock courses. The biggest problem most coaches have is traffic. This feature would help solve that.
They add complexity. And are redundant. @Sam Ovens I love Skool. ❤️ And for paid communities is a no-brainer. But having 2 communities 1 free, and another paid... It's just DOUBLE the work. DOUBLE the content to create. DOUBLE the moderation to do... 😮💨 My proposal: 🤩 FREEMIUM MEMBERSHIP community. 1. 🗣️ Community: Limited Public view of the 10 most recent posts (only members can participate). 2. 🤓 Classroom: Free demo course + (only members can access premium courses) 3. 🗓️ Calendar: (only members can participate) 4. 🤝Members: (only members can see and network) 5. 🏆Leaderboards: Level 1 public. Level 2 - 10 members (Level up to unlock content for higher retention and Live Time Value of a member for the community). Integrating the RECURRING payment functionality of monthly/yearly membership.🤑 I would love to be able to do this with Skool. Not needing to manage 2 groups, all-in-one is what we want. FREEMIUM MEMBERSHIPS. Fancy Fails, Simple Scales.
Just hit 100 members - party time! 🥳 Thought it'd be helpful to share with you 10 lessons I've learned along the way (and wish I knew earlier) so you can grow your Skool community more effectively & keep your members happy to lessen churn. I've also included 4 things I "hate" about Skool, AKA 'Wishlist Features' that I feel would make Skool even better. This is a big milestone for me and I'm so stoked to have made my 'clear & definite aim' a reality! Next target: 1,000 members. Enjoy the lessons, and big thanks to @Sam Ovens for all of his YouTube mentorship over the years. Ted P.S. I'd love to hear what you've learned since using Skool... If you have any tips/strategies for: • Growing your Skool group faster • Keeping your Skool members happy • Using Skool more effectively as an admin/moderator/teacher Please comment below with what they are :) You rock.
very helpful, thanks for that @Ted Carr. Skool seems like a great combination for building a membership and delivering a course with an attached community around it all ...so you can collaborate on its development.
I've tried all kinds of community/course delivery apps and this one crushes them all. It's EASY - which means that: 1. Introverted and somewhat lazy community leaders like me are WAY more inclined to interact, post, contribute, etc. 2. You can create a community with content etc in less than a day. Ours was up, running, and full of great discussions in less than 24 hours - and I'm not too bright. 3. THE USERS are far more likely to use it - which is the whole point. We've got more engagement in our new little community in less time than anything I've ever tried. Best part - nobody had to read the directions. It's intuitive. Favorite feature - ability to paste loom links into video thingy and create/post content super fast. This had to have taken a lot of time to develop. Well done and thank you for making it.
I want to launch a program for $50/month with the ability to simply click to cancel it at anytime. How would one go about implementing this on Skool? Whether in house or with 3rd party services? Thanks!
Sup peeps, new here. Seeing MASSIVE potential in using groups on skool to scale businesses (I might completely replace our FB offer). Were currently using a software called flowchat to manage group members as well as outbound DM, setting etc. My question is this -- are group chats on the road map for skool (we use this in FBG to intro setters to leads, it's such a smooth handover) and is there a way to find the "chat url" belonging to specific chats in skool? We could easily integrate this into what we're doing right now, but the connecting piece is the chat Url to be able to access to chat easily from flowchat. Thanks V
@Vianney Wilson Btw check out the free course under classroom on Group Funnels as Andrews makes the case that if done right you don’t need setters or even a sales team to close out HT sales of a mastermind …slightly different as you want to sell the DWY service side.
Hey Guys, I switched to skool 2 months ago in the hope that I will have a more engaged & interactive community. But it’s not going as planned. Even my fb group was more engaged than the skool community. I don’t know why? Even if we are giving books as rewards + I’m sharing some valuable content too but still don’t know what’s happening. I’m personally loving this platform & was so much excited to launch but my clients are not much excited about it. When we took a feedback from them, they don’t feel anything special about it. @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe @Nick Hauser Please suggest me some way to re-activate my community & boost the engagement.
Officially launched my free Skool group! Stoked to fully replace my FB group with Skool. Niche: Vegan Health & Fitness For Sustainable & Fun Weight-Loss The screenshot below is my sales flow, inspired by @Andrew Kirby - thank you @Andrew Kirby ! It was perfect timing to adopt a new sales flow for me as for the past couple of months I've been working on rebuilding my flow/programs because I transitioned OUT of 1:1 coaching. My sales flow was going to be content > webinar > self-paced course + membership. But the idea of building a community in a free group with super helpful free content resonated more with me and sounds a lot more fun & authentic. With an upsell of a membership & an inner circle. I also created a landing page for it, this idea was inspired by @Shivam Jha when he shared a landing page he created for this group - thank you @Shivam Jha ! Open to your thoughts & feedback :)
Here's the recording from today's call. We covered new features (membership questions, Zapier integration, ability to view/search members emails, and social links on users profiles. Lot's of exciting stuff to help you use Skool as a "group funnel" to get customers for your paid courses/communities. We covered a lot of best practices too. If you want to know how to use Skool to get customers, build community, and run a successful business — this recording is for you! Want to attend the next Office Hours live with us?

We have launched a FREE GROUP FUNNEL on the front end of our Paid Membership group and our results are great in our first official week of launch! We have made Over $40,000 in upfront sales and increased our MRR by $20,000 The FREE group works as our EVOLVING EMAIL list that has a dynamic engagement ability. We are playing with certain invite strategies and content flow to increase conversions to our paid membership! Here are a FEW things I have learned that have helped us Dramatically! 1. Have a CLEAR path that your members will follow. One simple thing that we did was create a Roadmap in the form of a PDF that our FREE members can download that sets the expectation and gives the overall goal which includes completing everything inside our PAID membership... This let's them know from the begging that the paid membership is where they should set their sites.. 2. Host a weekly welcome call for new members to official welcome them, give a tour of the community, re-anchor the Roadmap/expectations and showcase paid members live for testimonials. 3. Add ALL events from paid membership group to the FREE membership group, but let them know that the paid membership has things going on that they are missing out on and give them the link to join your schedule a call, depending on your flow. This allows you to create fomo as well as utilize the automatic event reminders from school to market the them what they are missing out on AUTOMATICALLY! Hope this helps... I will continue to add follow up post on our progress. Love ya, iiggie
