@Andrew Kirby stopped by Skool HQ the other day to hang out. We talked about Skool for 6 hours. He's doing some interesting things with his free group "Synthesizer School".
He basically funnels his audience (social, email list, etc.) to his free group + mini-course. He builds a relationship with his audience in the group, and occasionally promotes his paid course. It works!
The funnel: Audience → to Community → to Customers.
Anyway... I got Kirby to create a "Free Group Funnel" mini-course sharing his process.
If you have any questions, comment below, and I'm sure Kirby will help.
