Hello @armalik, welcome back to Udemy, I'm happy to hear that you're creating new courses!
We periodically update the instructor Promotions Policy to ensure you can make informed decisions about your continued participation in our programs These changes affect different parts of the Udemy platform, but all are designed to encourage growth and reward great instruction. We understand that some changes can be frustrating for some instructors, especially those who have been away for a while. I would love to better understand your thoughts and share your feedback with our team, so please feel free to add any additional comments about the specific changes you didn't like and I'll be happy to pass your feedback along!
We also offer a range of free resources to help you promote your courses, such as the Teaching Center articles, and our Instructor Community, which has a variety of resources and webinars. We also encourage you to engage with your students to build a strong community around your courses.
Paid promotion can be a valuable tool for instructors who are looking to increase their visibility on Udemy, but we understand that it may not be feasible for everyone. We encourage you to explore other promotional strategies and experiment to find what works best for you and your courses. Our community is a great place to learn about what other instructors are doing and share tips. In fact, the theme of the month is Marketing, and we'll be having multiple discussions about it throughout the month. I highly encourage you to participate and also join us in our upcoming virtual networking session (we will announce it tomorrow).
If you have any specific questions or concerns about promoting your courses on Udemy, please feel free to reach out to our Instructor Support team and they will be more than happy to help!
