Is anyone making a living from Udemy. Any tips ?

Go to solution

Hi

 

Anyone making a living from Udemy? 

 

I have one course that is ranked number 1-4 depending on the day and it really hasn't increased my sales drastically. I'm doing alright but definitely not enough to pay rent. (My first course was published 6 months ago and the second a few months after).

 

I have another short course (the second course) that completely vanished and no one buys it.

 

Any tips? Any amazing experiences for someone who has created 2-3 courses.

 

I figure the "formula" = number of courses + quality + time on platform + topic demand.

 

I'd be happy to hear what you think?

 

I'm not really planning on quitting my day job, however it would be awesome if I made lots of money to buy more Hummus.

 

Thanks !

Hi @RonErez We know many instructors have been able to make a living through Udemy. You can read some stories about how do they get to that point :

 

What was the Turning Point to do Udemy Full Time?

Setting realistic goals - how many of you are full time udemy instructors?

It's not easy to get to this stage, but everything is possible with hard work, dedication, and patience. I will also recommend checking out this webinar we did with Katie Bent.  There is a lot of valuable information in it on how to optimize your course at every stage.

 

Hope this helps!

@RonErez The answer to your question is "yes." And, your formula sounds about right. It takes time and persistence.
