I want to share the key lessons I have learned from my Udemy experience
I want to explain to you why I created this Course.I am keen to help fellow instructors and really enjoy interviewing them on my Online Learning Podcast too.However, for some of my courses, you are my market and potential customers too!So this is a compromise.I want to share some great information with you and at the same time tempt you to consider enrolling in my paid courses too.Its a bit of a glorified shameless plug really - but hopefully embedded with great nuggets of valuable information!
Do This First - Understand Udemy Insights!
Udemy provides instructors with an Insight Function in their Course Management Page.This is a very powerful tool and effectively Udemy is saying - this is what you need to know to create competitive and effective courses that your students are going to want to buy.You can discover for any Udemy Topic (read keyword):
  • Student Demand
  • Number of Competing Courses
  • MedianRevenue
  • Earnings of theTop Course
  • The SearchVolume and Trends over time
  • Similar TopKeyword searches
  • Similar UdemyTopics
  • Sources of Enrollments - how much is organically from Udemy?
  • The number of courses for which the selected topic is the primary topic
  • The % of these courses rated 4.5 or higher
  • The % of enrollments going to these courses
  • The Top 5 Earning Courses for this Topic
This tool enables you to do some strategic planning for any new course and it is also a great tool for improving your existing courses to give you the opportunity to compete with the top earning courses.Don't forget that Udemy is a classic 80:20 market place and 80% of the rewards go to the top 20% of instructors.Definitely watch this lecture first and use it as your foundation for your Udemy business.You can find the PDF for this lecture as a downloadable resource for your reference.

Why you only need to master Six Steps...
The more advanced framework for Course Creation has six steps:

  • Plan
  • Produce
  • Publish
  • Proof
  • Promote
  • Platforms

Proof refers to the importance of getting social proof (=credibility) for your course.

Platforms covers the syndication of your content to other platforms both for monetisation and promotion

The others are self explanatory but I cover some of the detail to them in this lecture.

And why you really need to master four of these
This sets out the main framework for this Course. The four key stages are:PlanningProductionPublicationPromotionEach of these stages involves a lot of work and the temptation is to focus on the first two, launch and then rely on Udemy to deliver on Stage 4. As I hope to show you, this would be a mistake.I have structured the rest of the course around this framework to make it easy for you to find what you most need to help you with your own course.
