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? 💰💰💰
40% comission is great and I'm gratefull for that, but maybe people who use our affiliate links should get 1 or 2 months free trial (like @Ted Carr said) instead of 14 days free trial, so they have a real advantage and a reason to use our link. @Taylor Benterud @Raj Dash in my opinion, letting us choose the comission structure make the product more complicated, @Sam Ovens don't want that, and it's not essential
Thanks everybody for your kind responses. I'm looking to scale my high ticket program. My N°1 problem is to make sure we follow all the leads, on a long terme period, and generate strategy sessions with them. I tried hubspot as a CRM but it's too complicated and not visual. I'm wondering if Pipedrive is a good option. Ideally, I just want something like Skool, really simple, so I can focus on other more important tasks than finding the perfect CRM. @Sam Ovens, i know you are kind of an anti-CRM person but do you have a recommandation that we can use to follow up leads ?
I would love to have more analytics on my student completion courses (which videos they watched, etc..) This feature in Kajabi was awesome and I think it's really important for my team so we can help and motivate students to go through the entire course & get results. Is this something you're planning to implement ?
A few questions… 1.) Is it possible to have multiple Courses in the “Classroom”? (UPDATE: YES). 2.) If yes, is it possible to give Community access to members of Course 1, but not members of Course 2? (UPDATE: not currently) 3.) If not, are things of this nature on the 2022 roadmap? And most importantly: 4.) I would love to have the ability to tier access, whereby you could have ONE Skool Group, but allow some people access to ALL Courses in the Classroom, and others only some Courses. This would be akin to the concept of "Offers" in Kajabi parlance. An Offer in Kajabi can give access to 1 Course, or a mixture of Courses. It would be great if Skool had this sort of "permissions" logic.
1. FB is distracting AF. Skool is zen - although I wish I could disable that nasty red notification bell lol. I will still have my team use FB for the free group function & to nurture leads in the DM's - but I will use Skool for my paying customers. They deserve my full attention. 2. Skool has everything I need to develop a membership subscription community. The community, classroom and calendar create form a trifecta experience. I will take payments via a ClickFunnels checkout page, process the payment via Stripe and then use a Webhook (Zapier) to invite the customer to Skool + have my thank you page explain how & why to join Skool. 3. The community, calendar & classroom feature are SO EASY to use, and are nearly perfect for what I want to do with a membership group - and I've signed up for over 10 other platforms searching for the best... Thinkific, teachable, circle, ghost, kajabi, podia, etc. but found them too clunky and confusing. 4. Skool is light, fast, clean & organized. It simply FEELS good to be in... like my Tesla lol. Nice job, team. 5. Anything Sam (& his team) build I know will get better with time, and we are in the EARLY DAYS! I'm very excited to see what comes next. I hope Skool can stay pure & simple as it is now... Curious, what are some reasons YOU love Skool? And are you making the switch from some other platform? Why or why not?
@Ted Carr Hey Ted, thanks for your helpful comment, i'm also thinking about making the switch from Kajabi to Skool cause i'm not happy with Kajabi. I might give a try to Circle also. What you did not like about Circle ? I agree with you, anything Sam is building is gonna be great. The only problem for me with skool right now is : no white label, no affiliation, no app. But I trust Sam.
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.
It is said to build a business you have to invest in yourself, and your business. To grow it you have to reinvest along the growth path. I was thinking after finding this platform just yesterday, that $99 for a private group is a bargain, considering what unseen info FB has been taking from us for years. That said, not only will I have mostly paid access groups, and you should, but since it is free for potential students to enter our world of Skool, why not invest in an extra group that is free where you can use it like an incubator on the platform. Just like we experienced being here in this group.....🤔 A place for them to come test drive what you have to offer. Screw spending 99 on ads when you can do so much more with an Incubator group. This was just something that came to mind last night I thought I would share. Thinking past the scarcity is required to grow a business. Thinking and feeling about the investment is exciting and powerful when combined. Do any of you have an incubator group like this? #incubator
Good idea, the problem is once your non-paid students join the paid group, they won't keep interacting in the non paid group. So you will have one group with non paid students & one group with paid students. You loose the benefit of having your paid students letting their testimonials, and telling to the non-paid group how the paid program is awesome. Because i guess the paid-students will not interact on 2 groups, it's too confusing for them. I think it's better to have diferrent level of access for people. So 'non paid students" will have acces to everything except classrooms (or even better, if we can define something like "non paid students" can have access to video 1 of module 1 only and video 2 of module 2.. so they can try the product)
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
I'm trying to sort out the pros and cons to uploading classroom videos using YouTube unlisted versus Vimeo. I could care less about price - looking for some input on which platform to host the videos on. Thoughts? Experiences?
In this video, I show you 10 little tips/tricks to make your Skool experience better :) 😀 Here’s an overview of what’s covered... Note: The 10th one is my favourite because I discovered it by accident and use it a lot! 1. The Search Feature (I forgot to mention you can also use the search feature to see which users have that keyword in their profile, and which course modules have used that keyword in their description.) 2. Hide/Unhide a Pinned Post 3. Invite members via link, bulk, or single email 4. Bulk drag & drop content into comments & posts 5. Profile color means nada if you have an icon/cover set up 6. Best Links: Now, During, Upsell 7. Color coating calendar events 8. Calendar future proofing on Zoom 9. Moving modules up/down 10. Description link trick If you know of any cool Skool tips/tricks, make a vid and share your secrets! 🥳 Big thanks to the team behind Skool for making this platform a reality 😍.
1- Do you see any limitations using vimeo on Skool in comparison to Wistia ? 2- What would be the best method on Skool to limit access for my students that are on a free trial period ? (so i'm sure they don't consume everything and quit)
@Ted Carr yes i could, it just make my product more complicated and i don't like that. I'd prefer have one product for everyone. To have a second group is also complicated. I think there is no solution with Skool for what I want, but Skool still add the best value to my students, and I'm confident @Sam Ovens and his team will always make the right & simple choise to improve it without complexity.
To bring order to the chaos of groups, we've introduced two new features: Rules and Categories. Together, they act as "guide rails" for coherent discussion, and accurate member expectations. Rules — Rules set expectations and let members know what's accepted and unaccepted. Groups can have up to 10 rules and you can see them at any time by clicking the "2 Rules" in group info box. (see the 1st screenshot below). Categories — Categories set topics for discussion letting members know what to talk about and where to do it. Categories are visible at all times in the left hand column. To see a more detailed description of categories, click "Categories" in the left hand column. (see 2nd screenshot below).
As fantastic as YouTube is, it is becoming increasingly harder to learn and to gain specific pieces of knowledge on there because search results are controlled by an algorithm that shows you what it thinks it wants you to see. For example, you may search for a certain video and have other videos rank during the search that are not even related, and that may be because YouTube thinks you want to see them because you are subscribed to that channel or you like that type of content, but I am not entirely sure why that is. The bottom line is that your search results are biased, making it more difficult to find what you are looking for, and I think this will slowly become more of a problem. Another problem with YouTube is that when viewers consume content, it is rapidly forgotten. Sam Ovens talks about audiobooks and how they are terrible for retaining information, and I have experienced that for myself. I think Skool has the potential to be a learning platform that is better than YouTube if strategies for optimum retention or memory can be used for teaching new information. This could be the place everyone wants to go to learn because they remember what they learn when they go here, and that would make Skool provide more value than YouTube!
@James Horan I'd love to have your opinion and what @Sam Ovens thinks about audiobook ? A mentor of mine, Alex Hormozi, thinks if you read & listen to a book at the same time, you'll have a better understanding of what you read, increase speed reading & long term memory.
Just like Payfunnels… It would be awesome to have a payment gateway between Stripe and Skool so we can send a checkout link to people we talk to on the phone. This way everything can be done on Skool and we don’t need external tools. Yes or NO?
I’ve been struggling to figure out whether Skool is the right option for me. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE everything about it… And I definitely see the potential! BUT, I’ve been going back and forth with my thoughts regarding the platform. - Is it like Facebook, but with a “Classroom” feature integrated and gamified engagement experience? OR - Is it like Kajabi/teachable, but with a powerful community feature integrated? The Marketing message I’ve heard describes it as the latter, where you can host your online courses and have the community engaged all within the platform, however, all of the coolest features are community-related features, with the classroom being pretty basic, which leads me to believe it’s closer to a Facebook than it is to a Kajabi. If that’s true, the question becomes, is it more important for YOUR business to have an amazing community experience? OR, do you care more about the student’s learning experience? (I.e. assessments, action items, branded pages, etc.). Tough choice…
1- White label 2- Interesting affiliate commission (like ClickFunnels or more) 3 - App 4- Possibility to upsell a specific course for people in the group I can't wait cause the product is REALLY simple & efficient
