Question: If I have 1,000s of group members and want to upload a CSV file later to give them access to courses, is that possible? We’re launching a community and decided to add all 3 of our paid programs. We’re only giving access though to past buyers and future buyers. My fear is since it’s several 1,000 people, I’m gonna have a logistical nightmare on my hands if I try to get the invites correct the first time. Lots of potential issues we’d run across like people buying different combinations of the courses, refunding some and not others, etc. Would be a lifesaver to have the flexibility to fix access stuff in bulk for existing members vs. 1 by 1 later.
I know I can send access upfront through invites but that is gonna be met with a lot of issues. Doing a bulk upload later would allow me to create a form that people could submit to let us know what access they need and we could just upload it all like every week vs. many times per day.
@Jamie Ogilvy right but this would be for people who are already in the group. I just know that I'm gonna have like 100 people the first day email me saying they don't have the access they need so I'd like to just get all those people to fill a form and then upload that CSV to give access vs. doing them all manually. Is that possible?
I have a paid group and get a lot of requests from people who haven’t paid. I’d love to email them automatically with info on how to buy if they’re interested. With the new Gmail and Yahoo email updates though, I wouldn’t dare upload their emails and message them myself. Would love if Skool added a way to email these people automatically. In the meantime we will just DM them before declining but skool email would be *chef’s kiss*
I wrote this as a blog post that has images and tutorials on certain things (you can read that here https://entreresource.com/skool-tips/) but here is the summary so you don't have to jump over there if you don't want. #𝟭 𝗛𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗨𝗻𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗸𝘀 𝗮𝘁 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗟𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹 (𝗕𝘂𝘁 𝗘𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗟𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹 𝟲) If you don't plan on having unlocks, you really aren't getting most of the benefits of Skool. Seriously, the unlocks are the heart of the program. The gamification is what drives engagement. More engagement leads to a better community. Engaged members see better results, which leads to word of mouth marketing for you which means, you guessed it, more sales and less churn! I mention level 6 specifically here because that is the level that requires above average, consistent engagement. However, it's also realistically obtainable. The best thing you can do is have unlocks at each level eventually. I'd start at level 6 though and make it something that is genuinely awesome and then do the others after. #𝟮 𝗨𝗻𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗸𝘀 𝗗𝗼𝗻'𝘁 𝗡𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗕𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝘀\ Don't let the words "Classroom" or "course" fool you. Unlocks don't need to be courses. They just need to be delivered in the same style as a course. They will always appear in the classroom area, but they can be things like access to events (in-person or cyber) or downloadables (PDFs, eBooks, Worksheets, etc). For my unlocks, I have courses, bonus videos and useful spreadsheets. They include a training video and a link to open and copy the spreadsheet. This is what that looks like on the inside. Get creative here, you could also offer things like free software or discounts on other things you offer. That's big "win-win" as it could drive additional sales off Skool. If you want to deliver a digital download like an ebook or cheat sheet, you'll just need to host it somewhere. If you have a wordpress website, it's very easy. You can learn how to host your files and make them downloadable for free here.
