Hey Alicia, thanks so much for the feedback. I would like to point out that your feedback is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I needed specifc tactics that I could use in updating the intro video which convert better (or make a great first impression on potential students) and not just a thumbsup or thumbs down or "hey you are doing a great/poor job" and nothing else. I have gotten some really good ideas from your reply and am now thinking about updating the intro video soon. I would like to show you the updated version to you soon! That said I would like to now respond to each of the points you made in your reply. here goes! so first the audio quality: I get your point about the audio but it took me a ton of time to just coming up with this audio quality. I was using a more expnesive mic earlier but the results were no where near to what I was able to get from the mic i used for this animation video you just reviewed. But point taken. I will try to work on the audio quality. I btw am using the Boya BY MM1 micro shotgun mic for this video (Which happens to be a 30USD mic and would totally recomend it to people on a tight budget.) I btw saw your video courses just to see what kind of audio were you getting and I liked the audio quality there. can you tell me what Mic are you using and if you enhance audio quality using any software or not? Second point about telling students what they will learn in the course: I think this is a great point. I have started working on it already and am trying to come up with a really short summary (2 to 3 liners) for each topic taught in the course. again, Great point! point about adding some details about myself (the instructor). I think this will be good for building student confidence and hopefully better conversion rates. good thinking there. I am actually going to look through your courses to see if i can find your Intro to see how you introduced yourself to your students. the trick here is to show you know your subject and build trust with students without sounding cocky or like a showoff. kinda ticky if you ask me but I should be able to pull it off. Lets just wait and see! 🙂 Good point about there being no need to spell "Udemy.com" twice. i thought it was a little wierd but then i remembered this guy do it and i needed some audio filler too in the video thats why i actually did that i mean repeating www.udemy.com twice. on your point about it being OK to have a 1.5 to 2 minute video. I am not too sure about this one as people have relateively shorter attention spans these days (research supported fact and not just my opinion) so i wanted something that was short and on point. The last point you made about adding "see you in class" or "hope to see you in class." is a great idea!! I am definetly doing this in the video update! finally but not the least you gave me a soild 8/10 for being a newbie. however, as much as i would like to say that I am a newbie but the fact is that I am a content creator who has been devellopiong content for others for the past 3 years. in fact i have made a number of courses for myself as well but never really got to market them! its surprising for most people when i tell them that we as human beings are not just afraid of failure but we are also afraid of success! you have permision to call me wierd now! Hey, one more thing would love it if you could also give some quick feedback on the actual lectures that I deliver. I am looking for "Delivery Feedback" more than anything esle if you would will, please. overall your response was really helpful Miss and I hope you are OK with me following your comments here on the community for more tips and tricks! The video lecture I am seeking feedback on is attached below. Best of luck with your own courses! Muhammad A. Rahim.

Hi, I am creating my very first training course here on Udemy and would like experienced course creators to kindly take a look at my intro video and suggest any changes or improvements they think would make the video better. As Intro videos are reported to increase sales (if done right) therefore I would really appreciate feedback and recommendations. Although, I am open to constructive feedback, however, I would appreciate it if you were kind while you made your point! Thanks a bunch in advance. Best. Muhammad.
