Finding out about Udemy at its early stages was great timing because they just had raised quite a bit of money.They were very aggressively spending marketing dollars to promote all the courses they had managed to gather up to that point in time.You will also have to spend a lot of time learning how to promote your courses.
I started with one course “How to create an awesome demo video for your business” followed by “How to create an awesome online course“.
Everyone agreed it was a great idea but to this day not a single one of them has sat down and published a course. Luckily, out of the more than 4,000 people that have taken my teaching course many have actually created their own courses and some of them are doing extremely well these days.
You can find the stories of many of these students here: One important thing to have in mind is that creating your course is only part of the work.
But very soon I found out that creating a 10 hour course was no easy task.
It took a lot of preparation and many frustrating hours fighting with my computer and myself.
Because I was one of the first instructors on their platform it just happened that many of those marketing dollars were spent promoting my course.
