I achieved an amazing milestone on Udemy this week.
I launched my first course on Udemy in January 2016. That month I did about $750 in sales.
Since then I've launched 16 additional courses. A lot of nights, weekends, and holidays have gone into course creation. Today, I'll see single days greater than my first month.
It's been a journey. The quality of my first course was awful. I recorded dreey lectures against a grey backdrop. And used a Blue Yeti that picked up EVERYTHING. You could hear planes flying overhead, my dog crying... Yeah, it was that awful! LOL
But I've learned a lot along the way. The organization and quality of my recent courses has significantly improved. Each course I created, I reflected on what I could do to improve. Some came from student feedback. Some came from learning from other successful instructors. The important part is to always be learning and improving.
I know when I was starting out, this level of success seemed unattainable. I hope newer instructors find inspiration from this post. There is no easy button. It takes work and time. Every lecture you create, grows your content. Every day that passes, more students will find you. Until someday, you look back and say wow!
To steal a slogan from the folks at ConvertKit - "Create Everyday!"
Hi @JohnThompson yours's got an inspirational journey. I just joined this Udemy instructor's community and this is my first post to read and like.
I'm happy and truly delighted to be a part of this huge Udemy family and wish one day I get the eligibility to write a post like this.
Basic sales funnel strategy. Just trying to grow my audience. I know I have free students converting, but there's no good way of tracking this. The majority of free students never start the course. But a % of students will, and a % of those will enroll in a paid course.
And I believe that the best is yet to come!!! Thanks so much for the inspiration. I have been reading these threads to get hopeful and pumped up and it's working. LOL And to just think we can tell others " I know him!"
