Hi @Derrickselu136 - Generally that's good advice. Hard work usually pays off in the long-run. However, Udemy is a bit different. You've got to combine some hard work with being smart. Frankly, I think being smart is more important than hard work. When I say being smart, I mean:
@RandyMinder Respectfully, I need to disagree with a couple of your points above.
2. On pricing: This is something that Udemy marketing has researched. Let's assume that the price of your course when on sale is $12.99, a typical sale price. If you have put a list price on your course of $19.99 it will not sell as well as if it is priced at $99.99, for example. What matters is net sales and revenue. If you price your course low, your net sales will be lower than if you price your course to reflect its value.
4. You create your personal brand value on Udemy. I would argue strongly that you should take as much time as required, six months if necessary (I did that several times), to create the highest value course possible. Students buy value which is indicated by your ratings X the length of the course X the quality of preview videos. Once you have created the best possible course it will sell and you will create your own "fans" or followers who will buy your next course. Do not sacrifice quality.
