Udemy is the big thing that is already here for instructors online, teachers, educators, internet marketers, and information products! These numbers shown in the picture above from https://www.udemy.com/about/ explain why. ~400 students for every 1 instructor. ~600 enrollments per course. Less than 3 hours of video per course. Now is the time to invest in making excellent Udemy courses while the rate of students continues to grow rapidly and the threshold for having an excellent course is still low. You can literally make an excellent course in about 10 hours screen capturing what you are doing, share free coupon codes in here, get it approved on the marketplace, and have it rank on the first page of organic search results within two months. That opportunity will not last forever. In fact, I estimate we only need around 50 to 100 more influential instructors before the competition goes WAY up on Udemy. This should probably happen within a year or two and anyone in here even if you do not have a course published has a chance to be a part of this. I sat in the Udemy studio for a year and did next to nothing. In the last few months, Udemy has given me enough positive reinforcement that I now start every day off by making at least two Udemy lectures. I consistently looked for the next big thing in my business at the expense of the big thing I already had. Not any more! 80% of my business now is focused on making more Udemy courses and sharing those courses on my website and social media.
If you want to start earning on Udemy, get Camtasia, a good mic, figure out what you already know about, and start making a course today! I try to finish one course at a time so that I actually get them done instead of just freestyling 8 courses at a time that I never finish like I did before. I can now make a new course from start to finish in 2 to 3 weeks. My first course took months. There are now excellent courses showing you how to do them fast. You are welcome to use my free coupon code to enroll in my course to see how to speed up your course creation pace at https://www.udemy.com/instructor/?couponCode=HIGHFIVE. I am also enrolled in https://www.udemy.com/4000-dollars-a-week-from-udemy/ and https://www.udemy.com/increase-udemy-sales/. Both of these helped inspire me to do better. Several instructors here also proved very helpful in both inspiring me and sharing positive reinforcement. I just got a comment in my course that I inspired someone to not give up on Udemy. It took several people to inspire me not to give up because getting started is hard! The learning curve is STEEP and has an ego killing step called the review process that is comparable to what an academic journal requires to get a research article published!
