Do I always get 50% revenue?

Go to solution

Hello, I'm reading this article https://www.udemy.com/instructor/resources/?page=audience and I have a question about it: "These programs allow Udemy to offer your course at a discount to current Udemy students, to affiliates, and to social media audiences via paid advertising. You can always opt-out of Udemy promotions and drive your own traffic to your course to keep 97% of the revenue (less a 3% payment processing fee, 4% in Japan).".
Does this mean that If I opt-in to Udemy's promotion program and I drive traffic through my link I will get 97%? Or if I'm opt-in I will always get 50%?

If you do your own promotions @devsmanship you keep an amazing 97%. I encourage you to opt into Udemys promotions - you get less for sure however all those small sales add up.

I think this article answers the question: https://teach.udemy.com/marketing/make-the-most-of-coupons-and-referral-links/ - "And finally, when you use Udemy’s promotional tools to bring in a new student, you keep 97% of the revenue from the sale. Your promotion, your reward.".

 

But let someone else confirm it, please 😄

Hi @devsmanship To clear things out there the 3 scenarios for our revenue share:

 

Your promotions: If students are enrolled in your course using your referral links, coupons. You will get 97% of the revenue of the total sale.

 

Organic sales: If students purchased the course with no instructor coupon, this happens when students browser your course from the course catalog. You get 50% and Udemy 50%

 

Paid User Acquisition Channel Sales: If students are enrolled through an affiliate link, instructors get 25% of the revenue.

 

You can learn more in this article Instructor Revenue Share.

Sometimes less (if the revenue comes from affiliate/ad program or organic if you divide a course with somebody else), or more (if you do your own promotions)
