I am new instructor on udemy and published one course last week. It is free and has 600 enrolments till now. Kindly let me know, this time is right to make it paid now.
My second course is almost ready. Thanks

When I started on Udemy, I also used the same strategy as yours. In the first few days, I kept the course as FREE, then changed it to a paid course. I later realized this strategy did not work well. Here are a few of my learnings:
So, after learning these key points, I changed my strategy and kept all courses, strictly paid. I have only one course that is forever free.
Now that you have 600 students, I think it is a good time to convert it to a paid course. With paid courses only, your start may seem slow. However, you will have students who are invested in their growth. These students can become your raving fans and contribute to your success by purchasing your courses regularly.
Just my two cents. Hope this helps. Wish you good luck! 🙂
