Hey @RyanJaress 

Thanks for sharing. It's informative tips for all instructors.


I need a target date to get any task completed

- so I have printed a one page Black Friday COUNTDOWN CALENDAR

that finishes on 24th November

It stays on my desk staring at me all day

and is a daily tally and reminder of what I need to do.

This is awesome, you guys should allow us to somehow run ads using the platform, not sure if that's even possible, but beyond just waiting for SEO this might help

@PeteMiller I don't want to alarm you, but the Udemy Black Friday sale usually starts 10 days or 14 days before the actual Black Friday. Usually.


So being ready BY Black Friday will be too late.



Yes Scott - you are correct.

Thanks for the reminder. 

I have reset my Black Friday target dates 

AKA alarms !!
