Hi @IrfaanAhmed, I hope you're having a great week! That's a very interesting fun fact. It's so nice to get to know you -- thank you for sharing a bit about yourself. Welcome and good luck on your Udemy journey! 

Hi everyone,

Let me introduce myself once again.

Myself Ameer from India.

I am very passionate about teaching.

I have started teaching on  RPA from 2017 and as of now I taught more than 25000 students and employees for free. And also,I am self learner.

I have joined the udemy community to understand more about udemy and I want to help more students.

As of now I have created 5 courses in udemy, but compare to all I am junior.

I have very less students in udemy.

Frankly I have no idea, how to market the courses. Every day I am fighting myself, how to reach the course more students. Any suggestions, please let me know and I am very happy to learn.

 

 

Hello there Ameer @LearningTech! We are more than happy to help you with any questions you may have about marketing. If you haven't seen it yet, we have a compilation of the best posts in the community created by instructors on how to market your course. 

 

You can also feel free to post your questions in the Marketing forum. We have instructors from many different backgrounds and experiences, and I'm sure someone will be able to give you some new insights and feedback to help you boost your sales! 🙂

Aloha I am June because I was borned in June

I am from Malaysia my superpower is to be able to help my students to get over the fear & to create 7 videos in a week !

 

 

Hi June, This is actually such an adorable fact about your name, thanks for sharing! 😊

 

Also, creating 7 videos in a week is definitely a superpower - you have to share your secret tips with the community. 👀🦸

 

Welcome aboard! 

Hello everyone! 

My name is Bruce and I live in a coastal town on the east coast of Canada. Brrrr, it's cold here in Canada. Just kidding - the water at the beach where we live reaches 80 degrees Fahrenheit every summer. 

 

My background is the corporate world where I climbed from waiter to CEO. Now, I'm semi-retired and I've been teaching part-time in the Commerce faculties at both a university and a college as something that is fun for me to do.

 

I learned from my university students that they were keen on understanding what really goes on behind-the-scenes in the business world - this led to me starting a SYSK (Stuff You Should Know) series of mini lectures on topics such as Standing Out at Work, How to Get the Job You Want, Presenting to Senior Leaders and more.

 

And those are the topics I intend to teach here on Udemy, with my first published course about getting the job you want.

 

Fun fact? I raced motocross as a teen and now, in my late sixties, I still ride a dirt bike. It's as fun now as it was then. 

 

I intend to learn from all of you, and pass on to you the insights I've discovered while teaching on Udemy.

Kind regards,

Bruce

Hey Bruce! @H.BruceJone026 the first thing I thought when I saw your comment was: now that's an adventurous instructor! 😄🏍️ I'm so happy you get to do what you love and be authentic to it.  

 

 

Looks like you have a lot of knowledge and experience to share! We are super excited to have you in the Instructor Community. If you ever need any help, feel free to let us know! 😊

Thanks Bella. I have a lot to learn!

Hi Bella. My career has essentially been marketing and sales based.  For new product development and in order to determine the market potential of new products prior to launch, I always conducted market research with potential target markets. Is there any way to conduct research with a) Udemy university students who will be graduating soon and b) people in the workforce who are looking to get ahead via Udemy? 

 

I have the feeling that most of Udemy's business students are focused on technical skills rather than interpersonal skills (that are just as critical for career success) but I don't know for sure. 

Do you, or your peers have any  suggestions or recommendations?

Thanks so much,

Bruce

Hi @H.BruceJone026 sorry for the delay in seeing your message. It's a great idea to conduct market research! At the moment, we don't have a way to filter specifically for the audience and criteria that you've mentioned, but I believe this group is best represented in the Udemy Business program, and for that, the Udemy Business team has put together a Priority Topics list which is a great resource for instructors to see what topics their learners are interested in and what they're currently planning on adding to the collection. 

 

We’re always working to expand our content collection, and regularly receive specific content requests from customers.

 

We also have the Marketplace Insights tool to help you research these topics. When you land on the Marketplace Insights page, you’ll see a list of “Promising Topics” which are currently in high demand. If you see a topic on the list that you’re knowledgeable about, this could be a great teaching opportunity.

 

Otherwise, continue to enter your topic into the search field and hit enter and the tool will show you useful data and high-level information including the topic’s student demand based on the learner search volume, the topic’s supply based on the number of courses on the marketplace in this topic, and monthly revenue information to help you understand this topic’s revenue potential.

 

I hope this helps!

Thank you Bella!

The list of priority topics is a great piece of intel for me as I've worked in all the marketing areas and have been teaching those subjects part time at University.

Very helpful.

Kind regards,

Bruce 

hello guys

Hello! @fercho2022 How are you doing?

Are you interested in becoming a Udemy instructor? Let us know how we can help! 😊

 

Hi everyone! I’m Melanie from Devon in the UK. I have just launched my first course on healing with crystals. I’m also a Reiki Master and Tarot Reader so I will probably write my next course in one of those areas!

 

I love teaching others, I used to work as an HR Manager so I did a fair bit of it in my former career. Teaching online appeals to me more as I have the time to tweak and perfect the course. 

Fun fact: I decided one day to overcome my fear of heights by jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet!

 

Good to be here!

Welcome aboard @MelanieStevens183, we're excited to have you here!

 

Congratulations on launching your first course! 👏 How is everything going so far?

 

And OMG, your fun fact made my jaw drop! 😮 My one question is: did it work or do you still fear heights? 

Ahh well that's the thing, sadly, yes I do!!  But I'm so proud of myself for doing it.  And I can now get up a stepladder without wobbling too much so I'm definitely better!  I even painted the ceiling in my spare room.

But put me anywhere near a cliff's edge and I panic so it hasn't gone!! 😂

Hi Everyone 

I am a Tabla percussion teacher and i am in the prosess of finishing my second course Part 2

I started learing the Tabla drum from the age of 3 years old, and have performed all overy the world and have over 30 years of experience playing and teaching.

Could anyone advise me when is it the best time to launch my second course, December or January 2023 or a nother month, to maximize the chances of success of the course.

Many Thanks

Mendi

Hi @MendiSingh, welcome to the community! 

 

That's a great question. Udemy's January sales are known for being successful for most instructors. I would recommend launching your course as soon as possible so you can start generating social proof, thus making your course appeal more to prospective students come January. You're able to update your course after publishing it, so you can always make adjustments as you go.

 

But if your course is not ready by then, it's never too late! We'll be here to help you each step of the way. Feel free to ask questions in the Studio U and we'll be happy to assist. 😊

Hi everyone! My name is Ariadna. I am originally from Barcelona, Spain, but I have been living in a little village in Bulgaria for the last couple of years surrounded by 11 awesome cats that came from the street into my house, and of course into my heart.

 

I am a Mindfulness meditation Instructor and recently joined Udemy platform. For the last year I have been working on my own Mindfulness course and am here to share my passion about meditation. 

Situations over the last few years lead me to loose my job, but also gave me the biggest opportunity to focus on myself, and I found a genuine and beautiful caring meditation school in Spain to study with, and for which I am grateful every day. Not only have I transformed my life but also I have found my passion.

 

Welcome, @Ariadna Mindfulness Instructor! 

 

Wow, 11 cats! That is my dream, I love cats! I admire you very much -- taking care of animals, especially by taking them off the streets, is such a kind gesture! 

 

I'm so happy you've found your passion in teaching. Sometimes we need to lose something in order to find what we've been looking for our whole life.  

 

if you ever need help with anything related to Udemy, please don’t hesitate to ask the community. We have plenty of instructors who are experts and are happy to help, as well as members of our own team who will jump in. 😊

Hi everyone,
My name is Ahmed Bakr.
I live in Sohag, Egypt.
I teach linux, windows, and web programming.
I like to read books on physics, astronomy and metaphysics.
I read books with the help of screen readers because I am a blind User 🙂

Hi Ahmed! Nice to meet you, welcome to Udemy instructors!  😄

Hello my fellow instructors! Glad to be a part of the community and help people learn about marketing and lead generation. I joined Udemey to share my knowledge of marketing and lead generation with other people so they don't go through the same errors and failures as I have. 

Stay safe out there!

Hello,

My name is Thad Broom and I live in Virginia Beach in the USA.

I am a retired architect but continue to teach engineering and architectural computer graphics at our local community college. My kids keep telling me  to just start taking it easy.  But I love teaching and the opportunity to pass on my  year's of knowledge to younger generations so, I think I will just keep on trucking.

Started teaching over Zoom during the pandemic and love doing so. Requires much more prep and organizing than just walking into a classroom. That's what started me thinking about Udemy. Why limit my teaching to one classroom when I can reach out to the world?

Fun fact? Hmm, well I'm a electronic gadget type person to the point that my son has threatened to spread my ashes in Best Buys all over the US when I pass on.

@Thad a retired Architect! Wow! I have a senior colleague here then. I'm not retired; I'm still very much in the grind and trying to figure out how things work on this platform. I'm still awaiting the approval of my first course, so fingers crossed.

 

Nice to know you, Thad. 

Loved your profile. I've been on the bleeding edge of  technology since AutoCad 10 and then Architectural Desktop and Revit. Have taught beginning and advanced AutoCad and Revit at our community college for 15 years. Have dabbled in VR with both Enscape and Twinmotion. Wondering if we could maybe collaborate by recommending each other. Also looking forward to seeing what your course is about as I definitely need to improve my p;presentation chops.

Howdy folks

I'm Michael and I live in Central Texas. I currently have created courses in Communication Studies, and in 2023 will add one in Texas History. 

I joined the community to learn how to best optimize my offerings and also figure out some marketing hints. 

I am an old person, who has worked in technology for 40+ years and have been promoting remote work for most of those years.

I spend my time annoying my dog Lil Dude and enjoying our walks.

I hope everyone has a very prosperous 2023 and beyond

Hi Michael! Welcome!

Hi to all ............................................Who Started to make course?............................................

Hi. My name is Jibola Oladiran.

 

I'm from Nigeria.

 

I'm an Architect, but I'm teaching Lumion, 3D Architectural Visualization, 3D Character Creation and Animation. 

 

I joined the Instructor Community because I love teaching and sharing knowledge and I've always wanted to be a part of a global teaching and learning platform to network and share experiences.

 

One fun thing about me is that I have few friends because of my creative personality. My interests are so far from the interests of the people around me. It's supposed to be  lonely life, but I enjoy it. 

Hi Jibola, welcome!

 

It’s not necessarily a bad thing not having a huge number of friends, I believe in quality over quantity. To find like-minded people though is so rewarding! You will hopefully find this with your students and you can chat to them about the things you love 💙

@MelanieStevens183 thanks for your encouragement. It's nice to have experienced people on this platform give one some boost.

You’re very welcome! I’m fairly new here too, I launched my first course at the end of last year. I’m loving it so far! I’m sure you will too ️ 

@MelanieStevens183 @ Wow! I hope to settle in quickly and get cracking.

 

I've sent my course for review. I hope it goes through successfully so I can get down to the real work soon. 

 

I'll appreciate advice from your experience and journey so far. 

 

Thank you so much.

Ahh you’ve got to the exciting bit then! Once you hear back from Udemy if your course is approved and ready to launch, that’s when it gets really exciting! I was so proud to launch my course, I hope you hear back v soon and can get started with the promo! ️
