Hi @in_yadav and thanks for asking those questions.
You can create multiple Udemy accounts and use the same Bank/PayPal/Payoneer account in different Udemy accounts. However, instead of linking the same account to multiple Udemy accounts, it's preferable to use the following process:
Hope this helps and if you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to the team at email@example.com.
Hi @EmilyWilkins108, great to see you in our community!
Instructors are free to create multiple accounts for specific course fields/topics/niches. For instance, if you have 3 different accounts you can make sure that each will be related to a specific topic and may therefore have more control and organization about it.
However, if you feel that your student base may come to benefit from all your field courses and also the number of enrolled students can make you gain more popularity, then it is best to create 1 account only and host all of your content.
While we've had instructors who have seen success with both methods, we would recommend housing your courses under the same profile. This would be to keep a strong instructor reputation and make managing the revenue easier. Again, this is a matter of perspective, but you can test how it feels and decide later on if you would like to create a new account or leave it as one.
I also recommend creating a post here in the community if you'd like to ask other instructors for their opinion.
Hope this helps! 🙂
Hey @Bella I was going to create a new post, but decided to reply here instead. I just want to know if this information is still relevant? I have four courses in Spanish. And want to create my first course in English. I like your advice on creating a new Udemy profile, making that profile the visible instructor for the English course, but host the course itself in the original Spanish courses account. Is this right? Do you give me the green light?
P.S. Will it be okay for me to use my name as well in the new profile? Basically I just need to translate the profile to English, and in the near future, have a Website and YouTube channel in English as I expand in the US market.
Hi there @SoyMarketer,
Glad you liked this alternative. Yes, this method is still relevant, meaning you can still do this if you'd like to create courses in different languages and make sure your profile is localized to that market. You can use the same name without any issues.
For additional advice, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org! 🙂
@Bella don´t mean to be a pain in the butt. But just to clarify before I implement this method: If my original profile has the 4 Spanish courses, and I make it invisible for the 5th course, and the "new profile" visible...Will the original profile still get the student count, reviews, and will it show that the original profile has 5 courses, or 4 courses in the instructor profile page???
No worries, @SoyMarketer
If you make both profiles visible, then students will still be able to access your original profile and see all your courses, reviews, and all the information you have added under that profile. They will be able to see both profiles, as two different instructor accounts.
I hope that makes sense! Let me know if you have any other questions! 🙂
@Bella last one for sure!
I want my main profile (Spanish) to show 5 courses (Including the one that will go in the English profile). I want those students, and reviews, for the 5th course (English), to count in the main profile (Spanish). What I don´t want, is to show my Spanish profile in the English profile Course Sales Page. So,
If I make the original (Spanish) profile invisible on the Sales Page for the English course that I´m thinking of creating, will the original profile reflect everything that happens with the 5th course (Even though it is invisible in that course´s sales page?) 🤔
To clarify, your profiles will display all the courses on which you are an instructor/co-instructor, but only the courses you are the owner of will affect your overall Instructor rating, thus reflecting in your original profile's page. If the account in question is set up as 'invisible' on the course sales page, then the course should not appear in that profile.
Let me know if you need anything else!
Hi @MichaelPog, happy to see you here!
Yes, as the course owner, you can put yourself invisible so that your name does not show up on the course landing page for students. It works the same way as it does for co-instructors, as long as at least one of your co-instructors is visible. You can read all about that here.
Let me know if you have any other questions! 🙂
Thanks a lot @Bella.
I was looking at another instructor who works closely with Phil Ebiner. The guy has courses in English, Spanish, And Portuguese. His name is Diego Davila. And he has all the courses on his main profile. His instructor page bio is in English. His website is in English, but his YouTube is in Portuguese. This is the kind of mess I wanted to avoid, I wanted to keep Spanish & English separate, but I want all the social proof to go to the Spanish profile.
It is a bit scary to think about doing videos for YouTube in English as well. I mean, I am barely managing to prepare updating current Spanish courses, creating new Spanish courses, creating YouTube videos in Spanish, and now with this English course I´m thinking I will also do a YouTube channel in English...
So I just kind of wanted to set it up the best way.
But I am still somewhat confused as to how to do what I want,
And ultimately, I think the best choice is just publishing it ASAP in English, under the Spanish (original) profile, even though that profile has the Instructor page in Spanish, and Website / Facebook / YouTube in Spanish...Which may be confusing for any of the students that want to enroll in my new English course...
But I just didn´t get how to go about this properly...
Any information with this new post I left you @Bella would be appreciated it. Either way I´m starting the process, and creating it is independent of how I upload it...And so any new information about this will still be timely. Thanks!
I appreciate the context, @SoyMarketer, it does help me understand your needs better.
You can have all your courses of different languages in the same account with no problem. As an example, if you have a course called "Course type 1" in Spanish, English, and Arabic, those courses will show up for students who search for courses in that same language.
Instructors who teach in more than one language often translate their profile bio into those languages instead of creating a brand new one. They also do the same for their social media and website, to make sure it is fully localized, so students can connect with them and continue to follow their work.
It will depend on you whether you want to create a new profile to have your other courses. This may be the best option if you believe that translating your profile would be confusing for students. Also, note that you'll need to complete the verification process for the new account too.
Good luck! 😊
