Hello, I'm new to Udemy and the community. I found it a good place to ask for help. I've launched my first course almost a month ago. I published it as a paid course - got no enrolments. Tried promotions through both free and paid coupons - got no enrolments. Today I converted it to a Free course and got more than 100 enrolments in less than 12 hours. Then I came to see the discussions on the same topic. I figured out students love to collect free courses and most of them don't even start. Please help me with the following questions: Isn't it good indicator for Udemy algorithm that my course is showing on the search result and as more free students log in everyday my course gain good rank after sometime? Then I convert it to a paid course, Is it good? If it is good, then how long should I keep it free? Few days? Few weeks? Few months? or until a specific number of enrolments? If it is not good, since most student won't finish (rather won't even start), leave bad or avg. reviews? will it effect the ranking? If I convert it to a paid course - will it automatically gain ranking? provided the fact the selling through coupons on social media didn't work, I got very few results and spent a decent amount of money. Or what strategy should I follow?
