Hi everyone, here is Jacky. I have been on Udemy for 3 months and create my course about TikTok Operation. Currently, I'm working on promoting my course and build up my personal IP. However, I find out that Udemy doesn't support more channels to promote my course. It only provides one referral link which I can only promote by myself. I am not able to have someone else to promote for me like an affiliate market. I am struggling with how fast does everyone is able to sell their course within 6 months since I really think I am underperforming. I want to find a way to get an email list so I can start sending email promotions to my target audience. So far I am working on my 30 - 100 TikTok accounts to promote instead of Youtube. (Since it's more direct and relates to my course)I even think about creating my Facebook community. But all of those takes time and energy. Does anyone have a great suggestion?
Hi @Parrot Media_Jacky You might want to take a look at this great thread where instructors shared some marketing tips: https://community.udemy.com/t5/Marketing/How-can-I-market-my-course/m-p/435
Here are my thoughts (in video form):
Two major issues I see:
(1) Your course is not competitive based on its length (your competitors are 2-12 hours, yours is 36 minutes).
(2) TikTok in general isn't selling much on Udemy. Top course makes around $1200/month, most make under $23/month.
Hope this video and breakdown helps!
There are fundamental English spelling and grammar errors on your course landing page.
I also believe your course title violates Udemy policy.
I think you need to focus on teaching. Not focus on linking to your other channels. Not focus on pulling students out of Udemy to elsewhere. Wrong focus.
