This is symbolic to me because Jan 1st is my birthday. In 2021, i intend to launch a new course (which I'm working on but won't manage to complete it until Dec 31), and I also have ideas for other 3-4 courses

Thank you very much Abbie. I'm almost finishing the slides (they have a lot of figures, animations, etc). When they are finished, I think I'll be able to record and edit the classes within a week.

Happy New Year @Abbie and the Udemy team.
This year I will publish two new courses and update one of my older ones. (This is a standard pattern for me that will only change if and worthy collaboration comes along)
I have just passed 50,000 students - which is great for shamanism - spreading the wonder of it globally. Am hoping to see that student number start to accelerate!
I will be more mindful of my social media connections and making them work more actively for me in 2021!

Sounds like a solid plan! Congrats on the 50K student milestone, it is indeed a great achievement. Wishing you the best, @SharonRamel. Happy new year!

Hello out there!!
My goal should be to revamp my marketing plan. Considering there are over 1700 enrollees in my introductory free course so far, I would think there would be some enrollees in my other courses by now, however, no one has enrolled in either of my paid courses, which are the next two levels of the content covered in course 1. Is there a way to find students specifically interested in paying for courses? (these courses are minimally priced at tiers 1&2) It seems promoting a free course is easy, however, I would think the students enrolled in the free course would want to move up into the next few courses if they enjoyed the first one. Especially since many of them are enrolled in more expensively priced paid courses. I've promoted all three courses on various social media, created coupons and promotional announcements, sent emails to my current students reminding them that feedback is important and asking them to take a moment and review the free course, I've let them know there are new courses up, and still not getting enrollments for the paid courses. Is there a way to market directly and exclusively to students interested in investing in themselves?

I planned to make a video review of my course performance in 2020 with Udemy Digest and monthly update but I realized that I didn't receive that kind of update anymore! Why?
