Im looking for a consultant to do some 1:1 work on optimising my landing page for marketing. Feel free to reccommend someone! 

Hey @AsherRubin, congrats on launching your course! You can always ask for feedback in the community if you'd like to hear from other instructors 🙂


I would be happy to help you out... I don't have any experience with Udemy specifics but have tons of experience with writing in general. (copywriting, grant writing, etc.) If you need some help, hit me up. 

Ps: I'm launching my first course on grant writing in a couple of days 🙂 Very exicited. 

Best wishes on your first course, let us know how it turns out 🙂

Hey @Laurence-Svekis


Thanks for your kindness Laurence. To answer the question. It turned out pretty bad, no success whatsoever. But looking back at it the course wasn't really that good either so I guess I got what I deserved. I'm going to give it a second try and created a much better course that I'll be launching at the end of Q1.  


I quickly checked your profile and YouTube channel. And I couldn't but think that I might be able to help you with your YouTube channel. And I personally need some help with questions concerning Udemy so I thought this might be a nice exchange.


I currently reach 551K people/month on YouTube and would be able to answer all your YouTube questions for FREE. Questions concerning title & thumbnail creation, intro's, SEO, getting more views, getting more subscribers, topic research, etc... ). I love helping, I love sharing knowledge and growing together. I believe those who help each other out are the ones who come out on top.


In exchange for my knowledge I would like to tap into your knowledge about Udemy courses. I would love to ask an experienced Udemy instructor questions about Udemy (course marketing, reviews, social proof, course creation, advertisement, etc.) Let me know if you would be interested in exchanging information. 


For your information here are my YouTube stats: 

- @DriesKetels (YouTube handle)

- 551K people reached/month

- 230K watch time/ month 

- 400 shares/month 

- 18K subs total

- 700 subs gained/month 

- 55K interactions/month 

- 52% aged between 25-44


Hope to hear from you, let's grow together and educate each other,



Hi James and All,

Many thanks for the mention of SalesSchool in Rookie of the month.  Jemma & I are thrilled to have made the list, delighted with feedback and so far thouroughly enjoying the Udemy experience & all that we are learning from the community. Sian


 pushing “publish” is the starting line, not the finish line! - so true 🙂
