Not the first to ask, but it would be awesome if we could drip content in our courses. How ? Just add a little new field in the "Edit set" that allows us to put a number of days for drip (see my screenshot). Thanks for reading ! 😸
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe I had planned do something similar. People pay a small amount to get into one of my subscription groups (planning 4), and then I promote my higher-ticket offers (1-1 coaching). My admins in at least one Skool group would actually be joint-venture partners, promoting their coaching/ hypnosis/ energy healing offers external to Skool. But I don't use a CRM; I'll drive traffic from YouTube and a private Facebook group. The CRM part comes after, for coaching clients, not Skool subscription members. And I don't want to give the admins access to my CRM even if I do end up using one. Hope that makes sense.
A pop up box after the member finishes watching the video to select "mark as done". I see that even if the member watches the video but doesn't select "mark as done" it doesn't track their progress. The pop up would be a helpful reminder to mark it as done so the progress is tracked! :)
Now you can earn 40% of monthly recurring revenue by referring people to Skool. Refer 3 people and Skool becomes an income stream, not a cost. Watch the video below to see how it works. How to refer people: Go to "User settings" --> "Referrals" tab --> Copy/paste your referral link --> Done! Note: You can only refer people if you've got a paid group on Skool. Check it out and let us know what you think? 💰💰💰
Curious about how this works with the 14d trial. For example, I'm a paying member of two groups by @Ted Carr. I need to try the Skool trial because there are some features I need that are missing in Skool. Assuming that I can figure out workarounds, I would then like to pay for a Skool group using Ted's affiliate link. Will that work? Or do I have to forego the trial to use his aff link?
I went through the Skool 101 course recently and as many of the posts as I could but did not come across anything about customizable chat. For example, I am planning to set up a sub offer on Skool and allow up to 1,000 members over the next 2-3 years, with at least 100 in 2022. But I don't want to all those members to be able to chat with me (as group owner) -- only those on my admin team. Is there a way to easily do this without having to block every single non-admin manually? (I'm charging for personal access, but just want to turn off chat by default.) Thanks.
Hi Skool Team, Creating great content is a big part of engaging with my community, and the ability to format my posts would help immensely. I've included a picture below from the community platform I used to use. Bolding, Italics, Dot points etc would be super helpful :)
I want support to decide which community platform i should go for... I already have Kajabi and considering circle for community due to all the features... but would it be better to go for skool and keep the content and community together here... any thoughts or feedback is much appreciated.
@Murtaza Badri Sid answered my same questions: No limit on either, in total, but attachments must be 100MB max. Just FYI, Ted (who posted above) informed me elsewhere that Circle has tiered membership capability. But it's not as nice as Skool for several other features.
@Nick Guadagnoli What if they're already a Skool member, say in one of my future groups, and then click my affiliate link and sign up for a paid group within 30 days? Do I still get the affiliate commission, or is the fact that they're already in Skool going to change that?
Hey guys! I understand skools feature for hosting community and courses. I have a 6 week program for this. But then I want to sell online courses without community or anything, how are you guys doing when you want to sell ONLY a online course. Like in Kajabi, are you complementing skool with somethine else?
@Paul Kliks If you're asking in general, I hope you don't mind my responding here for why I want the same feature. Actually, I asked something similar earlier today (re turning off community features) - and Sid already answered me. I have three different tiers, and at the bottom tier, there's no reason for community, and don't want to have to monitor it, but I want to upsell the higher two tiers and make it easy for bottom tier members.
Loving Skool, and the Skool 101 course videos are great - watched them all. But they don't answer some questions that I need to resolve ASAP -- as I need to sign up to Skool or a competitor this week or next. I was unable to find a "propaganda" page highlight Skool's features. Is there such a page? I need to understand all the features and limitations, including what's our hard storage capacity for documents and videos (and whether you have native video storage, or if I have to use external, such as YouTube). What I need to be sure of is asked below (not all are show-stoppers). Short versions of questions: 1. Gamification: Can we add additional gamification rules? 2. Audio: Can Skool store audio files? 3. Storage: What is the content storage limit? 4. Limiting community: Can we turn off community for some or all members? 5. Sub limit: Is there a max subscriber limit per group? 6. Removing subs: Is subscriber removal automated? == Show-stopper if Q9's answer is "yes" 7. Personal calendars: Can calendar events be "personalized?" 8. Multiple groups: Do we pay $99/m for each group we create? 9. Single group, multi-tiered: Can we set up multiple subscription tiers? Details: Sorry that the details are so verbose. I have some very advanced technical requirements and need to decide quickly. My feeling is not all of these questions will be answered in the Classroom videos, which will take me all week to go through. 1. Gamification: Ability to add other gamification rules at each subscription tier - not a show-stopper; I might be able to rig it some other way. 2. Audio: Can Skool store audio files or at least show an audio player linked by URL to an MP3/WAV file stored elsewhere in the Cloud? 3. Storage: What is the storage limit on a Skool community for content of all sorts? 4. Limiting community: Can "community" be controlled? E.g., turned off for some members in an easy manual or automated fashion? 5. Sub limit: Is there a max subscriber limit? If there is, do you have a way where I can pay a premium each month to allow more subscribers? 6. Removing subs: Easy removal of members who stopped paying (e.g., via Stripe or whatever). This is important in all subscription tiers, especially the top tier, where my team gets paid for their hourly services based on paying clients. Otherwise, it'll end up costing me. (Or at least some way to natively flag members in my Skool community who are unpaid for the month, even if I have to do it manually.) 7. Personal calendars: Can calendar events be "personalized?" E.g., at my highest subscription tier, members would be able to communicate with my team/admins to book 1-on-1 coaching/ hypnosis sessions (payment handled through subscription level, and possibly outside means). That coaching event is personal and should not be posted in the group calendar. But if it's possible to actually add such an event to a "personal" calendar, it would show up only to the member and the coach -- no one else. Is that possible? 8. Multiple groups: I essentially need either one group with multiple tiers (different subscription rates), or worst case multiple groups. In Skool 101, 2nd-last video, Sam mentions creating multiple groups but does not make clear if we have to pay $99/m for each group. The problem I have is that, with 3+ tiers desired, each tier needs to offer all of the features/ content of the tier below it. Not sure how multiple groups work, but can we automate a sign-up to higher tiers to have automatic access to lower tiers upon sign-up? Asking since it seems we can only send one webhook. I guess there are manual ways around this. 9. Single group, multi-tiered subscriptions. If the answer to #8 is that we have to pay $99/m for each group we create, then I'm wondering about an alternate approach. Can we set up multiple subscription tiers like Kartra, and can Calendar event listings be tiered by subscription? Both show-stoppers. For example, I need 3-4 sub levels, either explicitly (native to Skool) or implicitly (rigged through some sort of Skool member "flag" value that allows me to block access to some content, if not calendar events):
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Damn, you're fast. Thanks so much for the quick response. I KNOW Skool is what I'd really like to use, but I don't have 3x$99/mo at the moment. Will have to figure out the most sensible way to bootstrap this, especially since I'm not keen on having people sign up to as many as 3 groups manually. But thanks to your answers, I'll most likely use Skool for at least level B subscriptions. Thanks again -- cheers
During office hours, I asked Sam what Skool's marketing strategy will be (Ads, Organic, etc.) and he said 'word of mouth'. And now they've released the affiliate program which is cool BUT... As much as I love Skool... (I use it everyday & have 100+ paying members in my group) And as focused as I am at helping people start their own memberships which Skool *Would Be* perfect for... It's still hard for me to get ppl to A) get people use my Skool affiliate link and B) become Skool users Because of these 3 reasons: 1) There is no benefit for THEM in using my link. Right now I'm telling people if they use my link I'll hop on a 30 min Zoom call w em to set it up... not scaleable. Solution: Give them a longer free trial (or a % discount) for using my link. 2) The Zapier --> Skool webhook integration is 'too advanced' for beginners. Solution: Let us create a basic landing page that lets us take payments directly on Skool. I appreciate that Skool wants to focus on being the best 'after the sale' platform, but a simple checkout feature could get way more people using Skool since it'd make things A LOT more beginner friendly. 3) There is still no webhook for unsubscribing members or 'suspending' them when they fail to pay their membership fee. Out of my 150 members on Skool, at least 10 of them shouldn't be in there but I've yet to remove them cause it's a pain in the a%%. Solution: I'll let @Nick Guadagnoli and @Sam Ovens solve that one ;) LOVE YOU 👆 ❤️ And see you in Skool :)
Okay, that's a bummer. If it's difficult/ awkward to unsubscribe non-paying members, then there's less likelihood I'd use Skool, as much as I already like it. Hope the Skool team do something about that huge oversight soon, because if I have to go elsewhere to set up (very soon), I'm not going to transfer from another platform to Skool
I've only scanned a few posts, but are there any plans to have live video a la Zoom video chat (and archivable for replay). E.g., maybe as a paid add-on, so that we can have one-on-one coaching calls or group calls?
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Thanks but I don't want Zoom - don't want a million subscriptions. I'm looking for a community similar to Facebook that's not Facebook that has similar features including video - so that I can pay one subscription price. I'm liking Skool for my own future community, but need video chat. If the feature is coming, I'm setting up here. If not, I have to go elsewhere. To be clear, I'm referring to in-built live video feature (similar to FB Rooms), or possibly integrated Zoom (but not separate Zoom)
@Michael Stackhouse I ended up having to upgrade to a paid Zoom account for other reasons, but yes, it'd be nice to have that within Skool. In fact, if I'm not mistaken, RingCentral actually uses Zoom's video platform APIs. If true, Skool *could* do something similar.
