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.
I'm doing my best to use my low-ticket paid group in this way. It's public, and anyone can request to join (though only paid folks in it so far). Even if I haven't unlocked a paid course, there is some content in there someone could get value from, and they can preveiw the paid classes where they will find links to buy.
Here's the recording from yesterday's call. We covered: • Now you can invite people with course access privileges via email, CSV, and Zapier • Zapier can be used to invite members to your group + unlock courses for members in the group • Course access panel is much easier to see/use now • @Andrew Kirby's new mini-course "Free Group Funnels" is live • We launched a new podcast where we hang out with creators in this space Check out the recording to see how you can use these features and resources. Enjoy! Want to attend the next Office Hours live with us? See when it's happening on our calendar here
It would be great if points could also be earned in a fixed amount for completing course videos! This would also help users in this particular community continue to consume the video courses but in a controller manner and give the community multiple ways to earn points.
I say keep exploring Skool, I keep joining new groups, I wish there is a feature where you can organize the level of priority programs, so the one with the most priority can be on the top. Is this something I can do?
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.
Great idea about rewarding referrers. This is common practice in mobile games. Often it leads to users using fake accounts to try to cheat, which could happen in a free group as well. This can be addressed by requiring the referred accounts to meet some engagement goal (lvl X), before the rewards unlock... But I realize that's adding complexity.
I think this would be great for both modules and posts. Adding photos inline let's the creator introduce the right image at the right point in the text, which is great for engagement, sales, and educational purposes.
Does anyone here utilize the classroom feature for housing your Online Courses? If so, do your prefer Vimeo or bunny.net? Looking for something that will still keep our course content private as we do not want it to be easily searchable and found out in the world.
I'd love to be able to create a module with sales or teaser content (with some links etc...) for each course in my classroom. This module would be available to all students, even those who do not have access. This could really excite people to level up or purchase access to the content, and explain how they can do so with links.
@Brinley Rebstein I like simplicity too. Different use cases suit different people. I currently am running a low ticket front end Skool and this would benefit my use case. I’m sharing the workarounds I’m using for now because I hope they will be useful to others who may run into similar issues.
I'd like this feature as well. @Sam Ovens The reason is that it would be great for something to be EITHER unlockable OR purchasable. I come from the world of free-to-play games which is a lot like direct response marketing and this is standard practice... a new skin or building is something the user can "grind" to, but they can also buy it. In the ideal scenario the price to buy gets cheaper as they make progress towards unlocking it. In this way, the customer feels more and more like they deserve it and they find the discount price in which it makes sense for them in the time/money balance.
is there a possibility to add geolocation as part of the bio, which puts your location on the world map? that way members could reach out to others from the exact location to further collaborate in -person and create meetups.
Hi! I’m currently selling courses through ClickFunnels, but I think it be interesting for my students to use Skool instea so that they can interact with each other and be more engaged. I’d love to hear the stories of folks who made that transition and how it went. Both the challenges and the benefits. Thanks in advance!
I haven't added a single human to my group yet, but I know the pain of not getting engagement on a post... be it on skool, facebook, linkedin, email etc... One of the big mistakes I see is trying to make the message appeal to your entire audience. That often leads to really watered down messaging that doesn't engage. Stuff like "Want to grow your business?" See how weak that is? You'd be a lot better off writing multiple posts, that each go directly at a significant problem some subset of your community has. For example, maybe something like "What to do if your client ghosts after you send your proposal." That's a specific situation some of the audience can relate to direclty, and some of the audience may be in that situation right now. So your post is likely to get engagement and genuinely help people. And that's what it's all about, right? So, the takeaway is to write posts that make a big impact to somebody, instead of a weak impact to everybody. Then just make more of them to increase your relevance to more and more of your community. (This helps always have something to say too.) Ok, that's all for now. In your corner, Jordan
@Roman Pearl Well said! And also takes practice to learn to try different things and know not all of them will produce a great result individually, but the process over time will-- and to be ok with that.
