This is a group on Skool, about Skool, by people who use Skool. Here's 4 ways to get started: 1. Check out our "Skool 101" course to learn about the product and common use-cases. 2. Use Skool and share your feedback by posting/commenting in the community. 3. Attend our monthly "Skool office hours" livestreams for product updates and Q&A. 4. Want to create your own group on Skool? Click here to do that. Watch the video below for a quick overview of the product. Enjoy 🎉
Here's how I've customized my Skool group. It's still a work in progress, but maybe you can get some ideas by seeing what I'm doing with mine... I'd love to hear/see how you've customized yours well! Comment below with a tour of your group or post any suggestions for me & others :)
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?
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
Is there good payment integration? For example, we use stripe and paypal with kajabi right now? Will skool automatically kick out members who don't renew? Can I see a history of failed and successful payments and other revenue and subscriber analytics and metrics on skool?
@Gordon Goddard yeah currently I am using Facebook group to nurture prospect into client so thought of using Skool to do that. Now I need to pay for 2x$99 to do that. if we can have 2 communities under one account will be good.
