can I create multiple Instructor profile, for publishing multiple courses?

Hello everyone.
 
I have expertise in IoT, Python and a little bit in Psychology. 
 
I want to create multiple courses in all topics but I was thinking of publishing IoT related courses on one instructor profile and Python related courses on different Instructor profile and Psychology related courses on different instructor profile.  
 
So can I create multiple Instructor profile..?
Is this possible..?
and if I do so does it affect when getting money from Udemy or during submitting tax information.
 
Please help...

Hi @in_yadav and thanks for asking those questions. 

 

You can create multiple Udemy accounts and use the same Bank/PayPal/Payoneer account in different Udemy accounts. However, instead of linking the same account to multiple Udemy accounts, it's preferable to use the following process:

 

  • Create a new Udemy account 
  • Invite the "new instructor" (your other account) to your existing course. Here is a link that explains how to add multiple instructors
  • Make the "new instructor" the visible instructor and hide your original account
  • Set the revenue share of the "new instructor" to 0% This way, all payments will go to the same account, but students will see a relevant instructor for each of your niche courses. Please let me know if that makes sense.

Hope this helps and if you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to the team at instructorsupport@udemy.com.

 

Hi Bella, 

Could you tell me why your method is preferable?  I'm just starting out on Udemy and also want to make courses in several topic areas.  Thanks

Hi @EmilyWilkins108, great to see you in our community!

 

Instructors are free to create multiple accounts for specific course fields/topics/niches. For instance, if you have 3 different accounts you can make sure that each will be related to a specific topic and may therefore have more control and organization about it. 
 
However, if you feel that your student base may come to benefit from all your field courses and also the number of enrolled students can make you gain more popularity, then it is best to create 1 account only and host all of your content. 
 

While we've had instructors who have seen success with both methods, we would recommend housing your courses under the same profile. This would be to keep a strong instructor reputation and make managing the revenue easier. Again, this is a matter of perspective, but you can test how it feels and decide later on if you would like to create a new account or leave it as one. 

 

I also recommend creating a post here in the community if you'd like to ask other instructors for their opinion.

 

Hope this helps! 🙂
