Introducing the first paid community on Skool — "$1 Club". Its purpose: To demonstrate the paid community experience. For $1 /month you'll get to: 1. See what it's like to subscribe to a paid community (as a member) 2. See what it's like to sell a paid community (as an admin) 3. Be first in line to use the payments system (for your own community) Click here to join $1 Club. We don't expect you to pay $1 /month ongoing. You can cancel your subscription at any time with 1-click. We're doing this as a live demonstration of our payments system. See you on the other side!
Joined the $1 club :D Looking forward to getting access! I currently have my community as 'Free' and I get MRR from software I teach, however it's quite complex to manage access/paying members because of the nature of the affiliate system + Skool. Definitely will simplify my life and I think help provide my supporting users a better experience! Thanks @Sam Ovens & team!
Are there any plans to be able to 'Remove users' from a Skool Group based on an action within Zapier? Use case: Affiliate customers who cancel their subscription -> Trigger Webhook -> Remove From Skool
Sometimes you want your members to take action. For example: Introduce yourself and share a photo of your workspace, or... Play this song on the guitar and share a video of you doing it. Simple actions make your community more interactive and fun. Remember the ice bucket challenge? Action posts — Describe the action you want your members to complete. When somebody comments, the action will be marked as complete. Pinning posts to modules — Now you can pin posts to course modules to make them more practical and interactive. For example: Your first module could be "Welcome! Start here" and give a quick overview of how things work with a call to action at the end to introduce themself and share a photo. You can pin any post to a module, it doesn't have to be an action post. You could pin posts relevant to the module, or a post with the title: "Module XYZ - Questions/discussion here" and use it as a comments section. Your turn: Complete this action by telling us what you think?
@Isaac Danna Sam emailed me 12x in August. With this feature you could send 10x emails per month. That seems like a lot of “announcements” though and seems like a community would have to be oriented around the idea that it’s community + newsletter. Seems ideal to me to just have organic social content + 1 Skool Ecosystem. I just wonder if that’s apart of the intention with the build of the platform.
Sometimes members of my Skool community purchase a product for a one time fee. If I want to automate this user Zapier, it appears the only actions within Skool on Zapier are 1) Invite Member to Group 2) Unlock course @Sid Sahasrabuddhe how would you go about automating this process so that existing Skool members have the course unlocked without them being invited to create another Skool account? Is it the unlock course action? It looks like it's still inviting them within that action. And if they aren't part of the Skool Group, how could I invite them/give them access to the course without making this a separate zap? Or will I have 2 zaps? 1) Existing users who purchase -> unlock course 2) Non members who purchase -> invite -> unlock course Let me know if this seems accurate @Sid Sahasrabuddhe
I have about 1,500 free members in my Skool Community, any ideas from successful Skool Group creators about either converting to 1 paid community, keeping it free and selling products separately or having 2 groups (1 free, 1 paid)? Thoughts
Hey @Ammar AlShalabi check this video out... Yes, you can customize email notifications and daily digest emails... Here's how: https://www.skool.com/beta/new-features-introducing-notifications-20?p=d5177436
Feature request: The ability to turn on 'Study Mode.' Use case: The ability to block 1) Notifications 2) Skool Chat 3) Red Badges When studying/reading content on Skool. Other ideas: When users are in 'Study Mode' show a status or little icon next to their name so other users can see that 'John' is online, but may not see my message because he's studying. Implementation: Just a simple toggle 'On/Off' Would really enjoy this now that I have my communities on here and not on FB, and sometimes I want to read/watch content from other courses and I'm distracted by the incoming notifications.
@Robert Boulos 100%, think it's a pretty simple fix too, just 1 little toggle and then 0 distraction! It seems essential when reviewing course content, I've already found myself getting pulled into messages and notifications today when reviewing content.
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!
When Skool releases the subscription billing option, will it only be to sell subscriptions or one-time purchases too? I'm currently having to link together multiple software since community is on Skool and product is hosted on Gumroad
When I clicked on 'Create Group' and toggled between Group 1: Uplevel & Group 2: My own Archived Group, it shows Kevin Lee, who I don't know and who isn't in my group. Thought the team would want to see this!
Isn't Loom cheaper than Bunny? I'm pretty sure it's unlimited videos and unlimited storage for $96 per year. I've got tons of videos on it, and I have my camera hooked up to it, my mic, and upload HQ videos right to YouTube/my course. @Sid Sahasrabuddhe
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Oh I see, you guys need the infrastructure for Skool as an entire platform for hosting all user(s) content? I thought each user of Skool was responsible for their own hosting. I thought Consulting.com transferred all its internal content to Bunny.net for Accelerator, Uplevel, Quantum for all its own videos. Makes sense. Hypothetically I thought Sam could use Loom for all Consulting.com vids for $8 vs $40
Is it possible to have 1 Skool Group where 'Free Users' only get access to the Feed of the group, like posts/comments/replies/etc, but are unable to access the course content? I had the idea of converting my Free FB Group (200 Users) to Skool, but also limiting their access to so they can't see the course? That way I get the benefits of social proof/community intelligence, but only the paying users get the content/specialized support. I know I could do 2 Skool Groups but curious if it's possible?
Was watching the Uplevel course, then I saw a red notification pop up, clicked it and forgot I was watching the course, lol. Idea: Classroom Mode/Study Mode Function: No notifications Similiar to Do not Disturb on iPhone. Maybe over time, you could customize the specific notifications you see/don't see
I use a LG 5k Monitor and frequently 'zoom in' on Skool to read posts, comments, etc. I noticed when Zoomed in on multiple aspects of Skool, if you click a certain button or feature, that the page view automatically changes and moves out of view. Here's an example of what I mean! https://www.loom.com/share/d8529f67967c4cf3893a55a232682d8e
Where ya'll at with the process? Second question, who owns the content posted on Skool? Third question / suggestion- some kind of file option would be most helpful within groups so we can upload resources for clients. Thanks!
Hi @Ashley Paquin, I'm not sure about question 1 or 2, but here's what I believe are answers to 3 & 4. 3. https://www.skool.com/beta/how-to-create-your-own-group-on-skool-video-survey-link?p=e2c18761 4. I attached an image below for how to upload files on Skool.
I recently created a post in Uplevel, that someone commented on.. I noticed the red badge icon didn't disappear for the comment I already viewed directly within the Feed and that it still showed as an unread badge. Just bringing it to your awareness! I love Skool!
Hey team, just following up on my group submission to Skool. It should be under email@example.com! I only have a small group currently 13 members, but I want to get my FB Group off of FB. So I'm contemplating using the Kajabi community feature in the meantime, I want to use Skool and support Skool, but I also understand if my group is too small. Let me know your thoughts!
Hey Team! First of all I want to say thank you for the amazing Classroom feature! I truly cannot wait to fully transition everything over! I did have a quick question/maybe it's a user error. I uploaded my first test course and module, and published it, but don't see the Classroom tab like I do on Uplevel & Accelerator. Let me know if this is a user error. Once again, thank you and great work!
It's been amazing to finally transition everyone off of FB. The DM's were huge in being able to accomplish this, so thank you team! Right now I'm using Loom Vids, GIFs, and screenshots to help out clients but I'm wondering if we'll be able to natively send files via DMs at some point in the future since some of my clients aren't as experienced with tech! I understand we can use links, etc. Just curious, if not, no worries! You guys are great!
Hey Consulting.com team and friends... As FB and Instagram continue to become filled with more junk and more distractions... I'd love to transition my group over to Skool to create a truly value based group & community, these definitely seem to be the future.... Any idea on when this feature may be possible? Thank you!
