@Sid Sahasrabuddhe asked me about text formatting options and I just noticed that some of you just might need some more tipps of what's already possible to highlight text and make certain content more visible for your students. Besides Heading, bold and italic I don't need a lot of features. I love that Skool keep things simple, but for very long text content it might be very helpful. Anyways here some ideas: 1. bullet points are already possible: Press "*" and then "spacebar" 2. You can use emojis like number symbols or colored dots (@Ted Carr 🙏) 3. If you need more emojis, just press "control+command+spacebar" (Mac)
hey guys, i am confused how to properly use skool when creating an own course / group within here. How do I sell it to people ? Do I have to launch my Website on another plattform ? How do I process payments when using skool ? Highly appreciate some help. I want to launch a course but cant really get the process. How do you all do it ? You have your websites with wordpress or kajabi ? Which payment processing software do you use ?
Migrating my courses will from teachable to Skool. This will cause me to "loose" my sales page. What is everyone currently using? I have used click funnels in the past and I can easily go back and use webhooks to enroll students into the classrooms.
Regarding @Jason Oberg (https://www.skool.com/community/preferred-funnelsales-page?p=a0ebdbec) post I shoot a quick video, what I am using. I have been an elopage user since 2016. elopage was a small German startup and received an investment in 2021 (https://www.eu-startups.com/2021/08/berlin-based-elopage-raises-e32-million-for-its-all-in-one -microservices-platform-for-entrepreneurs). elopage is primarily a payment processor, but it has since gained many more features including a page builder (for salespage, landingpage, squeezepage,…) very similar to Clickfunnels. elopage has additional advantages if you are tired of handling hundreds of invoices every month. You can reduce this to 2 invoices per month with elopage. If you need help or have questions about it, please let me know in the comments.👇 #letsmakeithappen
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.
Currently in our Facebook group we can search and then sort by most recent. One of the big selling points mentioned about Skool is all areas of course/community with one search function. But the search doesn’t seem to have any rhyme or reason to the order of what shows up. Not most liked, most activity, most recent etc… Which hugely limits the functionality. Is there an ETA on when this will be improved? Thank you!
Dear Team Skool, I'm part of a Circle group, and though I much prefer Skool, there are 2 things I must confess I do love about Circle. #1) They allow GIF's. In today's day in age, GIF's are a quick & easy way to express yourself... but more importantly, they're FUN! I use them a lot, and so does everyone on my team. Not having GIF's is a little bit of a buzzkill and makes everything seem a bit more serious & dry... (the screenshot below of the cowboy is actually a GIF someone posted in their Circle post) #2) They allow for bigger photos. Skool's photo size in posts is so small unless you click on it, which makes the text the main focus. But what if I want my photo to be the main focus? Today I posted a screenshot and it's all I really wanted to post. But I had to write a lot of text to convince people to click & open the photo. I think Skool could keep showing their small thumbnail in the 'preview' mode of a post, but when someone opens the post, I'd love to see a full size image (as seen in the Circle post pic)
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 :)
Hey there, Loving skool. Just have a quick question. I'm about to get my course made up and am wondering what the process is in terms of having people buy the course on a landing page then being accepted by the email add in. Basically just asking if there is a landing page feature or do we need to make a seperate website using or something for acquiring customers then this is the final destination? Thank you.
Is there a way to "deep link" to a specific timestamp of a video, but in a comment? I can't find a way to "get at" the timestamped link to share in a comment. And to be clear, this comment is NOT under that video lesson, it's in the wider Community. I'm trying to reference a specific moment in a video, but in the Community. Thanks!
One word. Posts. Thank you @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe @Nick Guadagnoli and the Skool Team for this amazing platform and all simplicity that you are bringing here. I just realized that all other community platforms show at least the first 2-3 comments to every post, which makes the whole feed look messy and overloaded. Please, keep the current UX and UI and hope to see more people on this platform.
Could I get some clarification on the filters because I notice that the filter always defaults to recent activity but never shows me new posts only the most engaged posts. Since I engage with every post, I get notifications when someone comments on older posts but never new ones. Is there a way I can change my default filters, or turn on all notifications for a group (as admin or reg member) without having to filter to newest posts everytime? I find myself never using recent activity because it is never new or "relevant" content.
I have invited members that are showed as "pending". I doublechecked and they already have access to the group and join the group through email invitation. So actually they are active and have access to the group and their invitation is still in the "invited" section showed as "pending". is that a bug? is their a solution? @Sid Sahasrabuddhe
Hi guys, i need to give 2 members of my team permition to edit the content that is in the Classroom section. But i dont know how. I already gave them access to everything but they can not edit the content
I noticed the drip feed feature is only available for individual modules but not "sets" i was looking to drip feed the entire set as I want to launch an entire "week". Week by week rather than individual videos.
How does Skool manage duplicate content? Or when a member posts a question that has been previously posted? Can the admin merge with the existing post? Does the tool suggest the user that this topic has been published before? @Sam Ovens
Hi guys, i am uploading the Q&A calls of my program. One year of recordings and Skool organize them putting first the oldest, and i dont want that. I need the newest to be up front. How can i change that? When i charge the video, it goes straight to the end, and we have to click up so many times. Example i already uploaded 50 videos, so i have to click 50 times the up button. Is there and easiest way?
hey - big thanks to @Sam Ovens for creating this platform. I tested circle, mighty networks and Tribe before I decided to leave Kajabi. It's well thought out, simple and quite frankly I trust him having been a client since 2018. Big step to move paid clients and looking forward to making their experience even better with Skool.
