Re: Frustrating

Hi @Unaturalhair , we are all waiting - I am a very experienced instructor and pressed the review button several days ago. Most if not all of Udemys staff are working remotely to 'stop the spread'. Thus things are not as efficient as they usually are. 

Plus I am sure you have read that it will be two months before any money starts to flow. This is due to Udemys 30 day money-back guarantee. They pay on the 7th of each month.

Make sure you have read and are implementing Udemys marketing tips for your new course. Plus do a search here to find conversations about marketing your new course.

Please understand that Udemy is not instant money and for most of us it took quite some time BEFORE we started to make a good income from Udemy. Udemy is a long term game - not a quick fix.

Good luck.

Re: Frustrating

Hello @Unaturalhair , I can understand your situation. Sadly is the situations of many worldwide right now, and believe it makes me want to cry so often. I can tell you that you did a good move coming to Udemy if you want to start a bussiness for yourself. Yes, its also a good way to use your quarentine time to invest it in something very productive... but as Sharon sais... in the long term.

If you are in desperation for money, and I repeat I totaly understand it, please consider other ways to get short term money, becouse you not only have take time to create courses that fit the Udemy standars, but you also have to wait almost 2 months to get your first revenue, and also, you have to wait several more months to make that ammount of money to be significative. Usualy thats the path we all did along years working hardly here.

I dont wana help in your frustration, I wana help in giving you realistic inside info so you can make the best possible decisions you can make.

I wish you the best form my heart.

Hi @Unaturalhair 

 

I understand this can be frustrating! Each change in the process has to go back to the beginning of the queue and the process takes 1-2 business days again. However, please note that due to the current global situation there's been an increase of requests. The team is working diligently to provide instructors with quality swift service at this time.

Re: Frustrating

No, I had a full curriculum getting ready but due to the recent pandemic, had to speed up the first course because of no income. So I was preparing for about a month before this all happened. Smh. All I had recorded  was  the first segment so decided to push that through. I understand that the entire world is going through. But I just was tripping out about 1 freaking photo and I been just trying to get started. Plus have ppl waiting wanting  to buy it now so yes I get it.

Re: Frustrating

As @SharonRamel alluded to earlier, earnings from March won't be paid out until May, so I'm not sure Udemy is really going to be all that helpful to you if you need money quickly.

Re: Frustrating

The earliest you will get money is May 7th or June 7th. You'll have to have another course on a website, email, or Patreon to get money now. If you have students waiting then why not sell them something another way? The course can always be put on Udemy later. Most teachers have multiple courses to make more money.
