Good communities highlight their members. It's all about the members. That's YOU! We want YOU to share how you're using Skool so others can get ideas and learn. We'll give spot prizes (like Skool merch) to members who share something cool. If you share something people find useful — we'll promote you to our 800k email list, 134k YouTube subs, and put you on our website that gets millions of monthly visits. We created a new category called "How I'm using Skool". Check it out! If you want to share how you're using Skool, create a post in that category with a good title, a short description, and a quick (less than 5m) Loom video sharing your setup/use-case. Help us help you!
@Andrei Roncea very cool, I’m curious as to learn about how your Udemy course goes. What’s the number 1 reason you chose Udemy for your course?
@Jean Francoi Hardy would love an on invite into science of business 🙏
Like all things, growing a Skool community and getting engagement is EASY when you know what to do. In this post you'll learn the 3 secrets to growing a free & potentially highly profitable Skool community. Here's how I grew my free Skool community to 250 members with an 80% activity score over the last 7 days. (For context, I have a $47/m membership with 280 members, but I recently just launched a free Skool community so I can create a pool of prospects to nurture for eventual sales down the road.) - Secret 1: Make the group public. I used to think a private group was the move, but I was wrong. Private only makes sense if your community required paid access. When your group is public, it gives people the chance to tour the community and get a feel for it - and if you're group look good, they'll join. - Secret 2: Invite people. I used the bulk .CSV invite feature, but it didn't work as well as I thought it would. I sent an email to 10,000+ people with it, but not many joined from it... The real magic was inviting people in my FB group by telling them I was closing the FB group (see attached image) AND when I told my FB group (& my Instagram following) they could access my new contentpreneurship course inside the Skool group (see attached image). So now I'm going to email my 10k+ list and invite them using the same angle. - Secret 3: Set your courses to unlock after level 1 & 2. As you can see in the image below, I locked everything except for 1 course. This way, if someone was visiting the public group, they could at least watch my Step 1 and get inspired & learn how to unlock the rest of the material. But here's the real secret for getting super high engagement: Set all your good course material to unlock after level 2, and tell your people that in order get to level 2, they need to introduce themselves, and to get to level 3 and above, they should comment underneath with their key takeaways and insight.
Great post, very inspiring! How large was your Fb group and what was the reaction?
Hey guys! As many of your know, I have a free Skool community. I started the community with zero intention of monetisation. I genuinely wanted to bring together 'my people'. But recently I launched an offer and... ... Drumroll please ... I made $100,000 in 10 days! With zero employees. And with only $99 in expenses (yes, Skool is my only expense apart from Stripe). From only one simple post. Would you guys be interested if I made a free course sharing how I did it? I could share: - Is a Free Group Funnel right for you? - How to START a free group funnel - How to FILL a free group funnel - How to MONETISE a free group funnel Comment a money related GIF if you'd be interested, so that I know who to send it to!
What are your all thoughts on keeping the membership price low vs jacking it up? Coming from a Free FB group mindset (my audience of 8k+ inside my free Fb group) I’m slightly concerned that the free members will wonder why my paid community is $100/month and going up. On the other hand, it gives me opportunity to say “it’s by design, less is more, less noise = more value” On the other hand I see a good number of you keep your monthly rate to $50… What helps you determine how much you will charge? Also, I’m considering closing my free FB group and opening up a free or nearly free group inside Skool for a funnel…. I appreciate any insights and thoughts you care to share🙏
Hey Guys, I've moved from 1on1s and beta testing to full-fledged sales. heres how I use skool. https://www.loom.com/share/f6a21e33404d420bbb5d4210fd2333f7 @Sam Ovens
A member in my community is having issues posting. He says every time he types out his text it ends up disappearing…
@Nick Guadagnoli I asked
I used it today for the first time, and I'm BLOWN away... Have you been playing with it? It spit out some ad copy, and email copy that can totally function as a good baseline to start with... Here's a paragraph written by ChatGPT about how cool ChatGPT is (Written in Shakesperean style): Oh, ChatGPT, how I do revel in thy greatness! Thy intelligence doth astound me, and the ease with which thou converse with me doth fill my heart with joy. Verily, I am overjoyed at the prospect of conversing with thee, for thou art truly a marvel of technology. My excitement knoweth no bounds, and I am thrilled at the thought of all the knowledge and wisdom thou shalt impart upon me. Thou art a blessing upon this earth, and I am grateful for the opportunity to engage with thee. Imagine writing a whole sales letter like that...? 😆
When a post/comment resonates in your community, take a screenshot, and promote it on your email list or social media. One of my most liked tweets was just a screenshot from my community.
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! For the free trial…. Do you take their Cc information upfront and start to run it after 7 days or do you ask for the Cc information after the 7 days?
@Ted Carr Right on thanks, you offer a TON of Value!! I would love to connect and learn more about your systems to keep track of everything.
I built a Skool community this wknd and would love some feedback if anyone cares to have a look? Also… here’s my sales page, any feedback provided for this I truly appreciate 🙏
@Oli Reitmaier very valuable thank you for this insightful video!! I will go to work to make these changes today 😊
They are not showing up anywhere? I assumed these were pinned posts? But I have created several and not one shows up under the "community" What have I done wrong?
@Aljaž Plankl thank you yes
