I already know what you want. You want more students, reviews and sales!
After all, that's all it takes to become a successful Udemy instructor. Students, reviews and sales. So why then do some people want to make Udemy course marketing seem so complicated?
Note two things regarding my initial statement. First:
Students >>> Reviews >>> Sales >>> Students ...
This is a more accurate depiction of the relationship between the fundamental elements of Udemy success. In other words, students lead to reviews that lead to sales that lead to even more students... I refer to this as the cyclone effect in which a small breeze can be whipped up into a whirlwind that can lift a car off it's wheels.
How do you start your own cyclone? By focusing first on students, then reviews, and then sales, in sequence, building an initial breeze into a torrent.
Still with me? I thought you might be...
The second thing to note? Welcome to the course, it's already begun. I don't believe in filling my courses with a lot of "extraneous material". Keeping that in mind, shall we continue...
In this course, I'll teach you how to get 1,000s of students in days using:
Best Black Hat Forum free coupon listings
A Lead Magnet (a forever free course)
I'll even describe the different mix of students you're after so that you won't be disappointed in your initial results.
In this course, I'll show you how to get dozens of reviews in weeks using:
Udemy Course Records
Udemy Messaging System
Here we'll use Udemy itself to continue our marketing campaign. We'll focus on getting reviews fast from our mix of students; after all, reviews lead to increased sales...
In this course, I'll show you how to make thousands of dollars per month using:
Udemy Promotional Announcements (on steroids!)
Again, we'll use Udemy itself to generate sales and... you've got it, more students.
And we'll do it all without...
B L O G P O S T S... Mailing Lists... CPC Advertising... Kindle Books...
In fact, we'll do it all with the resources Udemy has provided.

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.
I'll see you in the classroom,
