The next three BIG new Skool features for 2024
At one point during the latest 1-Day With Alex Hormozi for March, Skool creator Sam Ovens confirmed the next big three innovations he and his team will be bringing to the platform this year. So what are they? ONE-OFF COURSE PAYMENTS This has been conspicuously missing from the Classroom - the ability for members to actually buy courses, rather than simply have them included as part of their monthly subscription. FREE TRIALS Speaks for itself, this one: the ability for potential new members to take out a (presumably) 7 or 14 day trial, to see how they like it. Patreon have offered this feature for a while now and it'll be great to have it here at Skool. Should hopefully really drive new member sign-ups! MEMBER AFFILIATES Now, Skool already has a strong affiliate program for creators (which you can see in action here! πŸ˜€) when it comes to incentivising them to help other creators start a community. When this new feature arrives, however, our members will receive a (presumably recurring?) cut of the deal when they recruit one of their friends to join the group too. Of all the new features for 2024, this one feels like it could truly explode Skool community growth, because our members could effectively become our salespeople. Sam seemed to suggest that these three features will pretty much take him and the team the rest of the year to implement and introduce. πŸ“’ Which of the three features is your favourite - the one you'd like to see introduced, like, yesterday? Vote! And then ideally explain why in comments.

WELCOME! Here's the place to start
Hi there, O builder of worlds. Thank you for joining us. Whether you have yet to start a community or are a seasoned Skool, I want this to be a place where everybody has fun and helps each other. Rather than being a community based around me preaching as some kind of Skool expert, in Community Starters we can all share information, discoveries, help and support, as we watch each other's communities grow and flourish - or talk each other into starting new ones! Here are a few things you could do next: πŸ”₯ Introduce yourself with a comment below. Tell us: ... where in the world you are ... where you are on your Skool journey ... what you like to do for fun ... whatever else you'd like to share πŸ”₯ Post a question for me and/or the group members to answer. - Perhaps you're still trying to figure out what your community topic should be - or maybe you already have a pretty shrewd idea and would like feedback? - Or perhaps you'd like to know how Skool works in terms of structure, features or something else? This place is all about being a helpful sounding board. - If you have a community, perhaps you'd like some friendly feedback on your About page from me and the other members? Ask away! - Hit the poll icon along the bottom of your post if incorporating multiple-choice votes would make for an extra-useful response. πŸ”₯ Respond to one of the posts that already exist here, perhaps to share your own knowledge, or opinion, or support. πŸ”₯ Check out this video course about Skool basics in our Classroom. πŸ”₯ Or just sit back and absorb the posts and conversations as they happen! πŸ•Ή Whenever another member hits Like on one of your comments or posts, you earn one point - and the more you earn, the more you progress up through the levels. 🎁 Reaching Level 2 here at Community Starters allows you to unlock my handy Skool Community Starters checklist PDF, which will help you ensure you're ready to usher in new members. (Don't worry, you only need five points to reach Level 2!)

The Structure Of Skool (basic overview)
Skool groups consist of three main zones, accessible via tabs along the top. Funnily enough, they all begin with 'C' and are as follows: πŸ“Œ COMMUNITY, where you're reading this. The most important place, where we all hang out and chat. πŸ“Œ CLASSROOM. The place for any and all resources I have to offer you, including downloads and videos. This section will grow and develop over time. πŸ“Œ CALENDAR. The place where we can all see upcoming group events. πŸ•ΉπŸ•ΉπŸ•Ή GAME ON! πŸ•ΉπŸ•ΉπŸ•Ή Skool communities have a fun gamification element baked in. Whenever another member hits Like on one of your comments or posts, you earn one point - and the more you earn, the more you progress up through the levels. πŸ”₯ Reaching Level 2 here at Community Starters allows you to unlock my handy Skool Community Starters checklist PDF, which will help you ensure you're ready to usher in new members. Don't worry, it doesn't take long to reach Level 2! The gaps between Levels get wider as you ascend through the ranks, but they start off pretty narrow. πŸ‘Š You might also want to have a read of my Medium article about Skool and the basics of communities here. Always feel free to ask any questions you have about these main features of Skool, whether you're responding to this post or starting a new question post of your own. And trust me, NO question is stupid. πŸ‘Š

I 5x-ed the price of my community
On Alex Hornozi's (indirect) advice, I'm experimenting with raising the price of my Writing Confidence Lounge group from $5 to $27. In Alex's words, "The higher the price, the more people believe [what you're offering] will work." Does that make sense to you?

The best way yet to entice early birds to our community
Monday's Skool Games hangout call is still going through my brain, as wisdom nuggets rise to the surface. Here's the latest. As I expect you know by now, when we raise the price of our community, the people who already joined stay at the price they signed up for. Alex expressed the best way of putting it yet, though: these early birds get a "life-long founder's discount". I am loving that. What do you think? :)
