Hey all. I've started using Skool as a front-end marketing group instead of a back-end product group. Is anyone else doing this? Attached is the model I'm using. The key differences to the model most in here use: - No ads - No direct outreach - No sales tactics - No content treadmill - Focus on audience building (specifically YouTube) - Focus on community - Using Skool as a marketing community, not product community I ran the new model past Sam and he said he liked it! I also asked for permission to post this here and he said yes. I think this new model is a game-changer for getting to $100k/m profit. I know it's quite difficult to get the full picture from the image, so if you need more info then just comment "Loom" and I'll send you a Loom fully explaining the model. Hope it helps.

I have a course that "only certain members can join", but now I want to unpublish it because too many people who do not have access to it keep asking me for access to it and they get sad when I tell em they won't ever get access to it unless they pay extra. So could Skool please allow me to "Hide" this course from the course menu to those who do not have access to it so this doesn't keep happening? Thanks!

    This is big - seeing who has access without having to go to their profiles and click edit permissions just to see what they have access to. Would be nice to see that at the course level and modify it that way.

I wish if the platform has something so remind us with our friends or the group students birthdays so to build more relation and wish them happy birthday

    Yeah, This is good, it’s my birthday today and I want to feel more love from the community. 😂😂 Jk

Hey guys here in LATAM we use a lot of voice notes when we chat. So it would be amazing if the skool chat has it

    Yeah, you could also record audio only on loom and it becomes sort of like a voice note.

In my opinion, it would it make more sense if Skool's 'Sets' were called 'Modules', and Skools current 'Modules' were called 'Lessons'?

    Would be coolEST to be able to change those to a custom word (classroom, set, module). Could make Skool really feel unique based on the group type.

Hey everyone, Made a quick video to share how I'm incentivising group engagement for my students!

    Honestly, it’s stuff like this that really makes the Skool community so powerful. People helping people not just with ideas, but actual implementation and use case examples. Thanks so much @Matthew Morgan !

Vidyard is a very popular competitor to Loom using similar standards. I was wondering if you would support it for the URL's, or look into adding to your product road map? Thanks in advance.

    @Brooks Van Norman off topic but I use loom and I don’t have issues with video lag, or maybe I’m not noticing it. You use set the highest quality when you record with Loom? Also, are you using their native app or the chrome plugin because that may help solve your lag issue?

I am about to launch a free group where anyone can join. Any advice on what to do and what not to do? Thanks!

    The legend @Ted Carr has done multiple videos on this, so I’m sure he’ll pop on here with a link on that video where he talks best practices!

When I open my course. Is there a way I can go straight to the course menu (showing all modules) rather than it automatically going to the first lesson?

    Yeah that’s a really good one. When going to a course it should take you to the list of sets/modules by default instead of the last module you were in forcing you to click again to see all modules/sets. It’s always an extra click or tap in 99% or cases

When you send a response in a thread @someone and then try to get the cursor post the persons name, you end up constantly hitting the GIF button and it makes it difficult to start writing your response on mobile cause it’s so close to the actual text box. Maybe moving it over and creating space There to make it easier to tap the text box and start typing. Not sure if anyone else runs into this. Im on an iPhone.

when we add a module - it defaults to the bottom of a set or course. But, sometimes we want to add a module to the top of a course right away as it is an ongoing update course - so we want the latest at the top. With a course that has a lot of modules, it becomes cumbersome to have to drag each new module to the top after creating it. Video below. Solution seems easy enough. Thank you for your consideration.

Hey there, is there a webhook function to give access to a specific course within the "classroom" section?

    There isn’t ATM but you are able to limit it by level of user or limit it to some users. If you provide some details on what you’re looking to accomplish with restricting courses, it will be easier for others to help. So what do you want to happen from this restriction for current members, when do you want to restrict this, who is restricted, etc!

Googled my name & saw my skool posts there. How can I disable that it happens?

    If you go to the settings of your skool group and make it private, that will do the trick. May take some time for the posts to fall off.

We include our courses in multiple Skools. Would be cool to have the ability to "clone" a Skool or, to clone products between Skools (not even sure this is possible), or even just to clone products within 1 Skool.

    @ross johnson oh yeah I don’t doubt and agree we should have the feature.

I want to share how I've been able to make the switch and how I overcame a few problems: PROBLEM 1: My group coaching program offers lifetime access to the course, but only 90 days to coaching. Since I can not remove access to call/community in Skool (feature I wish was available), I have to completely kick people out of Skool when they are done coaching... then give them the course somewhere else. HOW I FIXED IT: I bought another Skool community. I made this Skool community FREE. Instead of using a Facebook group, I'm going to now be using Skool. When students are done with their coaching, I move them to this free Skool and assign them our course specifically to them. This helps to keep them inside of our community AND gives them continued access to the course. This allowed me to leave Kajabi. PROBLEM 2: We work with beginners in business. They need a lot of support. They need to show up to every call and they want to. This creates a problem for us after about 20 members because as we get more of them, the quality of the weekly Q&A calls goes down... People have to wait longer and they feel less supported. It's not very efficient. We wanted a way to grow our group program, while keeping calls to less than 20 students. HOW I FIXED IT: We no longer put the Zoom call link in the calendar of public group section. Now, we have courses in the classroom called "Group 1 Call Link" & "Group 2 Call Link" -- when we have on-boarding calls with our students, we assign them to a group. This group has a specific weekly call time that is scheduled on the calendar -- the instruction for it say "get the call link from the classroom". Nobody else can get these Zoom links unless they are assigned to the specific course which they are in. This allows us to create the "pod" and divided group structure we want... while keeping the community large. Hope this helps others. Also hope Skool created features to make these 2 things easier :) but duct tape solution for now.

I checked out your Skool 101 video and like the clickable timestamp feature in the description. It's similar to the youtube chapter markers - very efficient. What are the steps for creating that inside my skool classroom? @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe

Hey folks, I'm currently focusing on improving student results in my paid community. I've been working closely with an 8 fig CEO who sells masterminds + coaching for business owners in a large UK market. He gave me some actionable steps to start getting more student wins, so I wanted to share them here for free :) 1. 1-2 group coaching calls per week keeping students on track and accountable, answering questions etc. Pretty basic but essential 2. Have a team member (or you) message 10 students per day and ask them what they're doing this week, what they're going to have done for next week etc. 3. Have a team member actively respond to posts in the group (I have 120+ students so this is something I need help with) - again, keep them accountable, ask them to fill out worksheets, give them homework etc. @Sid Sahasrabuddhe also share some tips... Do weekly / monthly / quarterly check ins with students to see where they're at and how you can help. Pin your student wins in the group for a few days so it's the first hings students see Add a free resource to your group description (a link / downloadable pdf) - for me this is a roadmap for students... At the end of the free pdf, encourage them to engage in the group and reach new levels on skool. Offer incentives for different levels in Skool. - Some of these are basic, but some are new to me, can't wait to try them. Hope this is valuable, and drop a like if so :)

If you go to joinsuperhuman.com you will Get redirected to my Superhuman Skool group. Cool right? Most people will have issues with redirect as there is no SSL certificate if you redirect from your domain registrar. So that means if people do https or even www they will get a message that your site is not secure. That’s bad. To solve this I recommend a redirect service like t.ly - for just a few bucks you can have a custom redirect url for you’re domain, track click and create other urls for specific parts of your classroom, zooms or whatever. Most important thing is that you’ll have SSL so it will be an https redirect and you won’t have those issues that most people do with redirecting through their registrar. Its really straight forward but I’m happy to do a video walkthrough if there’s any interest. Just throw a like or comment “redirect” on the post and I’ll send you a loom vid overview. Happy redirecting! -PM

I'm in the process of moving my huge video course over to Skool, because I think it will be a better customer experience. (I won't lie, it's a mega pain in the ass downloading all that video content and uploading to bunny.net, also re-titling all of the content, even when I've got a staff member to help... Sorry Sam) But I think it's for the best. If you've done this before, have you seen an improvement in engagement / student results? Do you have anything to back it up? Thanks!

Instead of making the Classroom invisible to members that don't have access to a course, can we give a preview just like you would see for courses that you get access to after leveling up?

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe oh my brain is cranking now - gonna Redo my intro pin post to reference the diff courses I have so people know what’s there and then when they click on something they want that’s locked - could hopefully convert into a paid member. Genius upgrade.

Would love a group chat feature to talk to all of my students at once. :)

Hi guys, what platform do you use to sell your Skool community? And our plan is to sell a monthly membership, do you manually have to remove unsubscribers from the Skool group or is there any way to automate it?

I want to have different sets that also have mini sets inside them to break up the modules. Is this possible?

- Why I made my Skool free and public (with paid upsell) - How i chose to lock certain content to drive registrations - My set up to give a reason for members to come back daily - My "community driven" try before you buy workflow - How I plan to nurture members from free to paid with a public group If you want to join a virtual workout community and have a daily workout schedule from the comfort of your own home, feel free to join my Skool: www.skool.com/superhuman Any feedback is highly welcome. Thanks for checking it out if you do! Have a good weekend. 💪 -Paul

Would be cool to get a congratulatory screen at the end of the course indicating that the course has been completed, at which point, you are allowed to review the course and provide feedback. 😀

    IDEA: Your last module in a given course could be a link to a certificate request form and then you can make the user a custom certificate (from a template) to then share with the whole community. 🤷‍♂️

    @Andy Cole exactly! Sometimes as the creators I feel like we care more about them completing the course than they themselves care about completing the course 😂

Will the be a feature to charge users for a monthly membership directly in school? Advantage would be automatic removal if not paid, less manual work

    I think it’s better being independent and connected via webhooks. Lots of flexibility that way. I read in one post that they will eventually my launch webhook upgrades that can auto add/remove users based on things that happen in stripe (billing declines, etc). So, that will likely get automated to some degree at some point.

It would be really powerful for Admins to be able to see their Skool group as a Member would when building courses, creating limitations, etc. This way, we can see what our Skool Classroom, for example, looks like to other members instantly. I know inviting yourself via another email as a member is a workaround to this, but that seems cumbersome and I think this would be a valuable feature.

It might be super useful to enable self-chat for users. Self-chat space becomes like a personal notebook of ideas, tidbits, nuggets, links, etc., found in the course of conversations on Skool. Usecase: I found the following post from Andrew Kirby pretty useful. I wanted to save the link. https://www.skool.com/community/the-weird-way-i-use-skool-i-think-its-pretty-powerful?p=538f6656. Where should I save it? In slack, I can send messages to myself where I went ahead and saved the link. It would be good if I had a space at Skool where I could keep this.
