Like all things, growing a Skool community and getting engagement is EASY when you know what to do. In this post you'll learn the 3 secrets to growing a free & potentially highly profitable Skool community. Here's how I grew my free Skool community to 250 members with an 80% activity score over the last 7 days. (For context, I have a $47/m membership with 280 members, but I recently just launched a free Skool community so I can create a pool of prospects to nurture for eventual sales down the road.) - Secret 1: Make the group public. I used to think a private group was the move, but I was wrong. Private only makes sense if your community required paid access. When your group is public, it gives people the chance to tour the community and get a feel for it - and if you're group look good, they'll join. - Secret 2: Invite people. I used the bulk .CSV invite feature, but it didn't work as well as I thought it would. I sent an email to 10,000+ people with it, but not many joined from it... The real magic was inviting people in my FB group by telling them I was closing the FB group (see attached image) AND when I told my FB group (& my Instagram following) they could access my new contentpreneurship course inside the Skool group (see attached image). So now I'm going to email my 10k+ list and invite them using the same angle. - Secret 3: Set your courses to unlock after level 1 & 2. As you can see in the image below, I locked everything except for 1 course. This way, if someone was visiting the public group, they could at least watch my Step 1 and get inspired & learn how to unlock the rest of the material. But here's the real secret for getting super high engagement: Set all your good course material to unlock after level 2, and tell your people that in order get to level 2, they need to introduce themselves, and to get to level 3 and above, they should comment underneath with their key takeaways and insight.
Currently there are only 3 ways to get points on Skool... 1) You can make posts in the community and hope to get likes on your posts. 2) You can comment on posts and hope to get likes on your comments. 3) You can reply to to comments and hope to get likes on your replies. But what if you're an introvert or lone wolf who doesn't want to make posts, comment, or reply? Or what if you're just mega focused on course work and feel the community is a distraction/waste of time? Or what if a community is 'dead' and doesn't give you the likes you deserve? Or what if you don't speak English that well and suck at interacting w other people in english? How can you get points, level up and access new course material or the bonuses then? You can't. Or at least, not very well. Because you're relying soley on other people's approval and validation for your progress. And that's an issue. Because most of my membership materials & bonuses get unlocked as you level up... and I've already had several members in my community reach out to me and tell me they want to level up but don't want to make posts, comment, or reply just to get points. + I'm part of a Skool group with only 15 members, only 5 of which are active, so it makes it incredibly hard to get points & level up. So what's the solution? What if you could also get points by watching course material? Call em "Progress Points" Or what if you could also get +1 point each week just by remaining a member? Call em "Member Loyalty Points" Or what if you could also get points by completing a quiz? Call em "Quiz Completion Points" These are just some ideas. Happy to hear yours below.

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?
Problem: idk what my modules are called. (i had to open a new skool tab to go find it) Potential solution: show me a searchable drop down of all my classrooms, once i pick a classroom, show me the modules in that classroom.
Hi, I’m Andrew... I haven’t posted here in awhile, but I had to say this... Skool + Airtable is a deadly combination. If you’re starting out... 1. Create data sections in airtable for "Sales Prospecting" & "Client Management" in Airtable 2. Use the Airtable Webclipper to automatically sync the prospects in your free Skool community into your Airtable CRM (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/airtable-web-clipper/fehcbmngdgagfalpnfphdhojfdcoblgc?hl=en) 3. Create an Onboarding Form for new clients in Airtable, so they're automatically added 4. Add a section for their Skool Profile to be added to their Client Card in Airtable, so you're just one click away from seeing all of their Skool metrics 5. Set up the Dashboards for your Skool Synced CRM & Client Management System in Airtable Interfaces (see below for some examples) (I've added pictures below with some examples. @Ted Carr reminded me of this today, so that's why he's in there and why I'm writing this post :p) Obviously this is the simplified process, but this combination of Skool and Airtable has made the sales and client delivery side of the business so much simpler than when I was using Facebook Groups and Spreadsheets in my last $5mil+ coaching business. Thank you so so so much @Sam Ovens and the Skool community here! Skool is sooo much better than Facebook Groups :p

Hey crew! Just curious how many of you tried using / currently using setters to book calls from your Skool? What's your experience been like? Do you recommend it or not? and finally, do you see any differences between KPIs from using setters on other social media VS skool? One of companies that I work for wants to use setters and I'm all for it, but wanted to get a feel from you guys if anyone tried doing this already. Thanks!
You already know. Major difference right now is my public Skool group is smaller than my FB group, so we have less prospects (this will change within the next few months) + we have no CRM for our Skool DM's like we do on FB.
I used to only sell high ticket (HT) using the classic Ad --> Webinar --> Call method. I was making $50,000 - $100,000/month, but I was stressed AF because of the huge fluctuations and never ending issues with ads. Then my ad account got shut down (yay!) so I tried an experiment and turned it into a low ticket, monthly recurring revenue (LT MRR) offer and blasted it to my email list which I had grown from the ads. With my new LT MRR offer, I was making A LOT less per month ($10,000/month) but I was actually happier because it was consistent. Gone were the days of feeling like every sale I made could be my last... with hundreds of people paying me monthly, I felt financially secure for the first time in my life. And then I discovered Skool... With Skool I learned how to get the best of both the LT MRR + the HT worlds... Now I'm making LT MRR + HT sales daily, and I'm bringing in $50,000+/month with no ads using a very simple flow that ANYONE can replicate if they wish. I've outlined everything you need to know in the video below. Hope this helps, Ted ❤️ P.S. If you want 1 on 1 help (at no charge) setting up your Skool community just like I've done, send me a DM here with the word "SKOOL" & I'll set yours up with you for free so it's fully optimized & set up just like mine. I've already helped 70+ people on Skool set up their communities, and I'd love to help set up yours, too! The catch? You just gotta use my affiliate link
1) Let us edit a post that's pinned in a module 📝 2) Let us edit a post and 'add action' ⚡️ 3) Change the name of the 'undefined' category to the category name that the post was given when created 🐣 Thank you in advance Team Skool 🙏
As an admin, I'd love to be able to set up my classroom so that certain courses/modules get unlocked based on a persons previous lesson completion AKA progress. Sure, people could 'cheat' and just click 'mark as done' on all the modules to unlock stuff faster, but this would still prevent people from: A) Skipping ahead so easily (& thus getting overwhelmed) B) Complaining about not having enough "likes" to get to the level 3+ C) Complaining about not wanting to wait X amount of days to access something (especially if they're extremely motivated and want to spend 5 hours in a day going through course material) I've helped nearly 100 people set up their Skool communities from scratch and at least 20 of them have asked me for this feature... So it's definitely a much wanted feature. Thanks Team
So I unsubscribed from a bunch of groups for various reasons... BUT - I still get their weekly notifications. I am NOT part of their group anymore, so I can not change the notification for the groupd I left... anyone else finds this annoying?
