Teach Online at Udemy
Udemy is an established online training platform with over 295 million course enrolments (April 2020) in 65+ languages. Udemy offers over 150,000 courses, taught by more than 57,000 instructors.
In my first year as a teacher on Udemy (2015), I made an income of over $50,000 - you can see the proof in the first few preview lectures in the course. In 2020, at the time of writing this, I have 28 courses and over 87,000 students. Udemy has huge potential for a relatively passive income, and Udemy is still growing.
No list required...
That's right, I made the majority of that income without using my own list. Udemy have their own fantastic promotional tools, and I'll show you how to get up and running with them as quickly as possible.
Unsolicited Testimonials: "Thanks for this course as it started me off on Udemy. Progressing well with my Udemy business still growing on 8 courses now with monthly over $700 last month should be similar this month. " Rob Wilson (October 2015).
"A very big thank you, Andrew, for the course on creating a Udemy course. What was insurmountable...has been achieved. I've wanted to teach online, and knew I had great content...but it simply seemed too daunting. Well, I went live just today. And it's because of your course.
I'm taking your advice on making it free for a while to gain students. So far, I have 300. Your course was exactly what I needed. From one teacher to another...Thank you". Mike (March 2016).

About the Instructor
Learn from an ex-school teacher, with over a decade of online teaching experience.
As a newbie instructor on Udemy, Andy went from $0 to over $3,000 per month within 3 months on Udemy.
This course takes you by the hand and guides you through the design and implementation of your very own Udemy course.
We'll start off by taking a look around Udemy, what they offer and how you can identify areas you might want to cover in your own course.
I'll then introduce you to the tools you will need for the course, including the trial version of Camtasia Studio. You'll have 30 days to use the trial, which should be plenty of time to get your first course created.
We'll then brainstorm the topic we want to teach by mind-mapping, and then turn that mind map into a skeleton structure for your course.
Once that's done, we'll take a look at the various lecture formats you can choose from. You'll also learn how to create quizes to let your students self-test as they go.
Since Udemy prefer video format lectures, that's what we'll focus on. You'll learn how to create screen capture video tutorials, and then edit and upload them to build your course.
After you go through the final steps to upload and submit your course, you'll learn some easy ways to promote your course and the best price to charge.
This course is suitable for anyone with a desire to teach, no experience required.
By the end of the course, you will know how to design a comprehensive, quality course and then record and edit high quality instructional video lectures. Using Udemy's intuitive instructor tools, you'll be able to upload your course and promote it using your own coupon codes. The best part of all is that Udemy will also be promoting your courses for you.
Who this course is for:
- This course is for anyone wanting to become an online instructor.
- This course is for anyone that wants to make a second (or even primary) income, teaching online.
- This course is not for you if you do not have at least a few spare hours per week to work on their course
I have written and published a number of books that are available on Amazon, including books on WordPress ("WordPress for Beginners 2023"), Self-Publishing ("Self-Publishing on Amazon 2022"), and search engine optimization ("SEO 2021"). I also run a website called ezSEONews, where I provide tutorials on a number of skills required for running a successful website.
As an ex-schoolteacher, I hope I can make complicated topics simple to understand. I certainly enjoy trying!
