Here's how I just hit a record month using Skool while travelling the world, without running ads, without a webinar, and without working more than 2 hours/day. 1. A ruthlessly simple system (which runs like a machine). System = Social Media Content + CTA --> Free Skool Community --> DM --> 15m Call --> 60m Call --> Client/Paid Skool Community. 2. A small team of A+ Players (who free up all my time & get things DONE). 1 VA 1 Appointment setter 1 Discovery call taker 2 Closers 3 (soon to be 4) Coaches (for the service delivery) + I'm currently training a content editor + distributor so I can generate more leads with consistent content output. 3. An offer too good for any human to reasonably say "no thanks" to (which turns nearly every conversation into a sale). "Business in a Weekend" has been our main offer and it's a HT, DWY/DFY service where we help beginners launch their online coaching business and get to 5-10k/month within 90 days. "VIP Weekend" is going to be our new offer, and it's a HT, DWY/DFY service where we help existing coaches scale to 50k/month within 90 days. If someone speaks with us and can't afford our HT, we take $49/m deposit and place them into our $49/month paid Skool community. With these 3 things (System, Team, Offer) in place, you soon get to a point where NOT making money becomes impossible. Money just comes to you whether you want it or not lol. If you'd like similar results, I'd suggest doing the following: 1. Create a free Skool community and fill it with amazing free course content. People will judge you based on your free stuff, so make it good. Try to get people results before they ever work with you. 2. Create a paid Skool community (charge $49/month for it) and offer 2-3 coaching calls per week in it + more awesome course content. 3. Post a ton of content on social media and in each post give away something for free that lives inside your free Skool community. 4. Once someone joins your free Skool community, DM them and see if they want to hop on a quick 10-15m free call with you where you can see if you can fast track their results. 5. If they sound like someone you can help, offer them a longer call to show them a more in depth game plan. 6. At the end of the longer call, offer to work with them inside your HT offer. 7. If they can't afford it, offer them your $49/m community. 8. Continue to study the GOAT'S in this Skool community. There are many people in this Skool community already making 100k+/month who you can learn from... I'm just one of them.
Just did a recent re-launch of a product using Skool (and 1 email to my list) that generated over $44K in just 18 days. I made even more after the 18 days but that was the original metric I had. It was nice not having to do a bunch of sales calls—most of the orders were purchased without any communication with the client at all. - No sales calls - No questions In the video I cover: - How I set up Skool (free/public) - The funnel I use (and the tech behind it) - How I generate traffic (platforms, types of content & the automated system) - The 2 posts I made (email list and Skool) Happy to answer questions or go deeper on topics if you have questions, just drop them in the comments below. Want the Zaps I use? Drop "Zaps" in the comments below. Hope you enjoy → https://youtu.be/B3lCI77mYLw
***UPDATE: the FULL video is live now → https://bit.ly/44yx06H Still in the middle of the launch. But wanted to see if there was any interest in seeing how I generated $44K in just 18 days with Skool. It was less work than you may think. The best part is my calendar is clean without any sales calls. I don't know how to run ads so I didn't use them I could talk about: - How I'm generating traffic on TikTok and YouTube into Skool - How I'm using Skool to sell products (without sales calls) And also the tech behind it: - My automated content machine (Airtable, Zapier & Google Drive) - The backend tech with Skool (Zapier & ThriveCart) If you're interested in an A-Z video (or even a webinar) comment "video" below and I'll put it together. PLUS I'll DM you when it's out. If there are enough people I'll do a full webinar. I'll be doing this in my community. Loving Skool!
Hey everyone, Introducing Skool Kompanion - A Free Mobile App for Skool I’ve made a number of tools for Skool over the past few months such as Skool Directory or the Members Export Plugin. I believe in Skool the product and ecosystem, and am excited to see it grow. As with directory, this project was inspired by seeing numerous requests about a Mobile App. In response I’ve gone ahead and created Skool Kompanion. Skool Kompanion is a simple mobile app that allows you to access Skool as you would from a browser. It also gives you access to real-time push notifications for posts and comments at the tip of your fingers. Over the course of the last couple of weeks — I have found myself more engaged with Skool due to the way notifications keep me looped in. I think this mobile app with notifications will lead to higher engagement within your groups. I encourage everyone to try it for some time, and see how much of a difference it makes. I think it will be an essential tool in order to stay engaged and connected with your groups. At this time Skool Kompanion does not support Android, and notifications do not support chat. These are things I may look at in the future depending on support and feedback. So please try it, and let me know if you have feedback.
Liam asked a great question here so I thought I'd make a video showing you how to: - Automatically give members access to skool when they sign up - Have a VA remove members access when their payment fails - Easily & ethically allow members to cancel their subscription Resources mentioned in the video: - Sam's instructions - My script & jotform If you have any Q's, post em down below :) Note: I forgot to mention... In the welcome email someone receives when they sign up for my program is also a link to the cancellation form so they never need to ask me for it.
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.
Hey, My name is Josh Gavin. As per request, I'm here to share how I'm using a $27 offer to fill my Skool group with members who engage, collaborate and upsell into my $3k+ offers. To give you some history... I grew a Facebook group to 5200 members and collected $486,000 cash from it without running a single paid ad. But while I was doing this I noticed my homies over at Clients & Community had invented this new concept of running ads to a lead magnet which would then point to a free group. So after some time, this method became very popular which meant new problems appeared. But here I was... Growing just as fast as everyone else without running paid ads. So I decided to launch an LTO (low ticket offer) as a side mission to teach all these struggling group owners how to get new members without ads. I never planned on this becoming my main offer since I hated the thought of becoming another one of those 'coaches' who help 'coaches' with organic marketing lol But here I was with a method no one else was teaching... So I launched it! And just 30 days later I enrolled over 200 people at $27 + 40 people into a sass upsell. Using my V1 funnel here: https://www.organicgroupmethod.com/join Then I decided I wanted to take this more seriously and increase my AOV as I started learning more from the LTO God himself Alen Sultanic... So I added new upsells and launch V2 which you can find here: https://www.organicgroupmethod.com/offer Then in December, I launched V3 which you can find here: https://www.organicgroupmethod.com/launch But here’s where things get spicy… Although I believe Facebook is still better for a free group since you can get more attention to funnel people into sales conversation… I don’t like FB as a client portal for paid products…
Introducing two new features for courses: 1. Drip — Now you can drip course content to your members over time. When adding/editing a module, turn drip on, and enter the number of days you want to module to drip after. 2. Course permissions — Now you can give some of your members access to course A, but not course B. When adding/editing a course, set permissions to "All members have access" (default), or "Only some members have access". To give specific members access, find the member from the member's list, click the "..." menu, click "Manage access", and select the course from there. These were two of the most requested features we've had, so I hope you guys like them! Check it out and let us know what you think. Enjoy!
Qn? I have a free group which I am moving to paid and will use Skool's new paid tool. Though I want to offer a free 14 day trial, it is a low ticket $47pm plan though the principle applies to any offer regardless of price. The sequence is organic post - YT, Insta, Linkedin etc and then CTA is join the group. (also descend from HT if they are not ready). Offer 14 day trial which means they get up to 4 coaching calls (2 x pw) + all the content for free to check it out. CTA has to direct them to a stripe checkout which offers the 14 day trial, I could then zap them into Skool and into my CRM which is GHL. Problem - I want the Skool group to be public, great for SEO, and I want it to be paid. Qn? 1. is there any way to keep it public and have a payment gateway which allows free trials from the Skool Subscribe button? 2. Even when Sam has the paid version going it still will not work for me until I can offer a free trial for the above reasons. Is there a workaround anyone is using or planning to use until Sam and the team launch V2 of paid hopefully with free trials? The problem being the subscribe button on Skool will show free (which is incorrect) or paid (though cannot collect free trials). The only option is to have it as paid and then offer a 14 day refund - the next question is if we do that will Skool allow us to offer a refund? Love to hear everyone's thoughts? @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe if you want to chip in that would be great.
Struggling with the structure of communities. So, we have a high ticket course. Now here is a free value-focused community, and we have a subscription-based community. Help me understand this, please. Sam, doesn't charge a monthly fee to be part of his high-ticket course community. So I will assume that is not part of this discussion here. So now, what do you offer in the subscription-based community? The reason I am struggling with this is because the free community needs to provide an incredible amount of value. I started to create a killer course that was supposed to be a low-ticket course to be the step to the high-ticket course. Then I heard about communities, so my first thought was, OK why not put that low-ticket course in the subscription-based community and get recurring income. But now, I am leaning more towards providing this course for free (mind you I sincerely believe this course is incredible). But that brings the issue. When do you stop giving free value and when do you charge people? Can some of you tell me what you do, where you draw the line between free value and paid value, and how do you have your high ticket course structured in all of this? Thanks. BTW, I have seen all the "How so and so uses skool" videos. These don't answer my dilemma sadly. What do you offer in the free community? And what do you offer in the paid community w.r.t. value? Why would they want to upgrade to the subscription-based? I am hoping a bunch of you will answer with 1) your opinion on this, 2) how you structured yours, and 3) Your phycology or reasoning behind it 4) how this is working for you (are people upgrading to paid, and if you know, at what rate (every week we get 15 new members to the free and 3 upgraded to paid). Of course, you don't HAVE to answer all these but it would certainly be valuable to others here aswell.
I see it like this: 1. Awareness (free or low ticket) 2. Education (low-mid ticket) 3. Implementation/Access (High Ticket) 4. Access/Mastermind/1on1 (Super High Ticket) Each program should deliver on those points above but leave them wanting the next step
I second this! 100% credit to Luis Naranjo. https://www.skool.com/community/course-on-having-a-kickass-community-manager-for-skool?p=b8918294 A little mini Course on how to be a kickass Community Manager for Skool would be helpful. I think this information is valuable enough that I would pay for it. One thing that keeping me from starting a skool community is I have 0 experience on managing/moderating/nurturing something that looks like a full time job! How easy do you guys think it is to take an average joe like myself for example, take me and make me a kick ass community manager? Does it take lots of schooling and education? How easy is it to delegate and outsource to some one? I was given the sword, but not the skill to wield it!
We recently shipped these changes to the calendar feature. People loved the ability to set access permissions, cover images, etc. But most didn't like the events UI, they preferred the calendar. So... Now the calendar UI is back! And you can toggle between calendar/events list with a single click. We learned something from this: Next time we make any meaningful changes to the interface, we'll ship the change to a small beta group of communities and gather feedback there before we ship the change to everybody. Skool is a lot bigger now, and we need to adjust our process. We're learning!
Hello, does anyone use a challenge as their lead magnet for their community/group inside of school? If so how do you do it? If anyone who hasn't, but has any insight on a good approach, feel free to share. Thanks in advance!
