I am happy to share that I hit the milestone of $100k in 1.5 years.
When I published my first course, I never thought of reaching this milestone within a very short duration (1.5 years). Credit to Udemy.
I would like to thank Udemy for having an amazing platform for providing online courses.
1.5 years back I took the decision to quit my regular job and started full-time on Udemy.
How I reached this milestone in this short duration?
When my first course was added to UFB, my revenue increased by 75%. Then I started creating and targeting courses for UFB on popular and demanded topics. Out of my 8 courses, 3 courses were added to UFB and these 3 UFB courses generate 75% revenue.
I have a huge audience/followers on YouTube, Blog, Twitter, Linkedin, and Facebook. Initially, as they like my teaching and content so they started enrolling on Udemy.
As I am working full-time as Udemy Instructor, I got enough time to respond to all student's questions, messages, etc. I added sections to the existing courses based on the student's suggestions/requests. So the students were happy with my work and started joining my multiple courses.
There is a lot to share but these are the main highlights.
For new Instructors on Udemy, keep creating awesome content, target your courses for UFB, and be consistent and patient.

Building an audience/followers is a long-term process. If you start a YouTube channel now then it will take a lot of time (for technical content) to get subscribers, views, and revenue.
Create amazing and engaging content leads to gain subscribers and views.
Same for the Facebook groups, it is a long-term process.
Creat a Facebook group, and share useful content in a group so that group members can share in their network.
Congratulations on this milestone. I would have a few questions.
I choose the topics that have more demand in the market. I do take a suggestion from students on which subject or topics they want courses.
There are no specific criteria for UFB. If your course has a good rating, and more conversion rate, and is especially more demanding for UFB customers then probably they will select your course.
My course creation process is simple. I create the projects and divide them into small lectures in proper order.
Your growth is outstanding @Ramesh Fadatare! Congratulations!
Question --> How much time do you dedicate to your YT channel and all other social media accounts in contrast with creating courses on Udemy? How does your overall day look like?
Congratulations @Ramesh Fadatare on your incredible success.
Your hard work and perseverance have paid off.
After reading about your Story and Milestone, it inspires new instructors like me to create more courses.
