Hey! What a great question. Ok, I just launched my very first course Sept 6, "Getting Started with Concurrency in Go (Golang)". I'm pretty happy with my enrollments, ratings, reviews, and engagement. I've also received some great feedback from students on what they'd like me to add or change. My goal for September is to complete my response to this first round of feedback and relaunch the course with all the new features. Since I started with ZERO audience, I look at this course as my beta test course - I want to perfect the formula before moving on to my next course in October sometime. Good luck to all!

Hey Ela, In my opinion, there could be 3 main roadblocks: 1 - The course promo vid, your course promo vid should cover quite a lot of topics in a short amount of time (90 seconds is ideal, keep it under 2 minutes), but here's a great tutorial on that: https://info.udemy.com/perfect-promo 2- It is possible that you just have higher-rated competitors, so as a student you'd probably go with the one who has the higher rating. 3- Maybe just the topic that you have chosen doesn't have a lot of search volume, maybe just the people who learn PHP interested in another topic, You can check the "Market insights" on your topic and you can do a small research about the keywords that you can use. P.S - I had the same exact problems with my first course, I had better high-rated competitors and to be honest, they had a better course than I had, but now in my second course, I'm targeting a high-searched topic that doesn't have a lot of competitors. also maybe you should try volume up the sounds a bit and removing the background noise as I suggested to you in one of the posts. Good luck, Matan Naveh
