Are you a Udemy instructor? Well, so am I.
What do I teach?
I teach a number of subjects, but one of the subjects I specialize in, after having released 22 Udemy courses of my own, is how to create and sell Udemy courses.
This course falls on side of how to sell Udemy courses.
Mind if I ask you a few simple questions, instructor to instructor?
- What's your all-time Udemy average star rating?
- What's your average star rating this month? Per course?
- How many reviews did you get during your best month?
- How much did you make per day this month?
- What was your best day of promotional revenue?
- What action caused your greatest leap in revenue this month?
If you can't answer these questions, then you need my help...
This is a short course about how to use two Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets/Workbooks I've developed to analyze your Udemy course revenue and reviews.
I made each workbook simple and easy to use by including the following worksheets:
- instructions - Step-by-step instructions for inserting you Udemy data into the "data" worksheet of the workbook.
- data - The data to be replaced by your data downloaded from Udemy.
- analysis - The analysis of the "data" worksheet.
For each of two downloadable workbooks, revenue and reviews, I provide the following guidance:
- Introduction to the workbook
- Replacing the data with your downloaded Udemy data
- Excel internals showing how the workbook is implemented
Bonus Lecture I: The revenue tracking spreadsheet even includes an extension that I added after recording the original lectures.
Bonus Lecture II: I've added an additional worksheet that you can use to track course times as you record them and project the finished length.
So, what do you say?
Got a few bucks to begin learning how to analyze your Udemy revenue and review data?
In other words...

Who this course is for:

I was born in the middle of the last century in Los Angeles, California. After moving for a time to the Silicon Valley, I graduated from Humboldt State University amid the redwoods of Northern California.
Two weeks after graduation I was working as a computer systems programmer for Lockheed Missiles and Space (LMSC) back in the Silicon Valley. Two months after that and I was married as I have been happy ever since (for 40 years).
After 14 years at Lockheed, I moved from working on IBM mainframes to using PCs running the Unix operating system and encountered a thing called the Internet. Cisco Systems seemed to be the right place to work, so I joined the company as their 650th employee. Eleven years later Cisco had grown to over 20,000 employees.
I retired at the age of 48 and instantly became bored!
Throughout my professional career, I'd always enjoyed both writing and providing technical training. So, I attended creative writing classes at my local junior college and began to write.
I managed to write and self-publish a handful of books, but things didn't take off until my wife, Melanie Jackson, an established author with a New York company, left traditional publishing to join me in self-publishing.
In 10 years, from 2010 to now, Melanie and I have made half-a-million dollars self-publishing well over 100 books. I also managed to record a pair of audiobooks for Amazon and Audible sale.
By 2014, our rapid rise to Kindle fame had already dwindled. I decided to pursue my second passion of giving training presentations.
Since 2014 I've published over 48 online video training courses for training sites such as Udemy and Skillshare. My goal is to provide low-cost high-quality screencast-based educational material focusing on my areas of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. I continue to expand my video training catalog while focusing some energy on resurrecting our flagging book sales using various marketing techniques. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed using WordPress.
I currently live in Las Vegas, Nevada, with my lovely wife and Butterscotch the cat.
