I'm new to Studio U, but I recently had my first course accepted on Udemy - and a few days ago had my first student! My course is Tracing Ancestors in the UK for Beginners.
I'd like a few tips on marketing, as I know this kind of course is not going to immediately sell itself. I've already created a voucher and posted on Facebook and on my website, but I'm not sure what to do next.
Any suggestions welcome

You're asking the most popular question on these boards. As I just got done answering on another thread, it's hard to do much marketing with a single Udemy course. I would get started on the follow-up course or create a short "lead magnet" course that you can give away few free vouchers to gether students. Then cross promote between the two courses using Udemy promotional announcements.
Hope this helps and congratulations on your course,
Thanks for the advice. I will certainly have a look at the Published Instructor Club - and I also have plenty of scope for follow-up courses. I also have an idea for a free introductory course, which I could use as a promotion for the beginner's course with discounts.
Lots of work ahead!
You've got some great answers and links to other places already so I'm going to restrict myself to saying welcome to the community and congratulations on launching your first course, wishing you all the success in the world.
