Hi! My first post here. I have been lurking around for some time now. I want to use this post to summarise what I have understood. Please tell me if I am right. So, my goal with Udemy is to create the best course on the topic and hopefully let Udemy do the marketing. Now in order to do this, if I select a topic that already has 100 courses on it, I will get little or no sales. This is because Udemy will order the courses in the search results based on which courses have the best ratio of Views To Sales. And that makes perfect sense from the perspective of Udemy. They don't want to put non-converting courses at the top of the search. So, this means that I need to choose a course topic that people would care about. And also, can show up somewhere in the search results soon after publishing. In other words, I need to find a "niche". Let's assume I do find a "niche". I expect the following will happen (if the content is good) - Publish the course. - Starts showing up in the search results for the target keyword (hopefully in the top 10) - Hopefully, people are searching using that keyword. - Some people choose to see it and buy it. - It gets some reviews & grows from there. - Eventually, if it's good (and the ratio of views to sales is good), it will come to the top spots and then will dominate that small little niche. - Do this cycle all over again and hopefully, with enough courses I would make some money. My Question: Is the above realistic? Or am I missing big pieces of the puzzle?
