Thank you for your prompt reply.
I have just watched the video and is all very clear and looks easy to navigate, so thank you! I am loving the community support.
I have published a course that would be a great add-on to other courses on the platform. It might be easy if I explain what I mean... My course is to help Pilates and Yoga Teachers to understand the depths of what is involved when working with women in their 40's and 50's and who could potentially be peri-menopausal. As well as a Menopause expert I am also a Pilates and Yoga instructor so I know how much they will value this course.
Is there a way to introduce my program to the clients that have brought the teacher training Pilates and Yoga courses and add them value by suggesting this add on?

Hi @ToriNorrisABL, welcome to the community! That's a great question - I'm happy to help you with this.
As with many other e-commerce platforms, we provide recommendations based on the student's demonstrated interests. If we already know that someone is looking for Pilates and Yoga courses, we know that they are more likely to buy if we show them other Pilates and Yoga (or related) courses. This means that someone looking to buy a competitor's course may discover yours and vice versa.
Ultimately, our goal with all recommendation units, be by email, on the home page, or on the course landing page, is to show the student what they are most likely to click and buy, given what we know about them. This is all done automatically by the system's algorithm, and we don't have control over which courses will appear for the student.
What I recommend is that you review your course description to better define your audience and apply these SEO best practices to increase your course's visibility and search results. Here are a few things you can do outside of Udemy to create awareness for your course:
For more tips, take a look at this compilation of the best marketing posts in the community.
Once you create more courses on the platform, you will be able to recommend your other courses to your existing students, so that's something to keep in mind in case you plan on creating more courses about Pilates and Yoga.
I hope this helps!

Still remember the days of the Facebook group, the complaints about moving away from it, and now look at this 🙂
Onwards and upwards
