Description

Are you in the process of creating a Udemy course? Maybe you have created a course, but you aren't seeing the signups you expected? Does that frustrate you?

If so you need to learn the secret to earning your first $100 on Udemy. 

My Story 

I was a bit discouraged. I joined the Udemy Facebook group and saw a number of people posting their yearly sales statistics. Some of these courses made less than $100 in an entire year. I thought "Did I just spend 40 hours creating content that no one will ever see?". That's when I knew I had to create a different plan of attack. 

I change my methods and started marketing the course on my own before launching. I'm glad I did because within my first week I was able to create $100 in sales. 

What will I learn by taking this course?

That's a great question!

This course will teach you the tactics that enabled me to hit $100 within one week of going live. Topics include: 

  • How to brainstrom a course idea. 
  • How to discover what people want to learn based upon needs.
  • How to create a course outline.
  • How to create a mailing list. 
  • Learn about copywriting and why it is ultra important. 
  • Learn why content marketing rules in the information age. 
  • What to do once your course is live. 


How long will this course take to complete? 

I reveal the methods I used in just under 1 hour.

Director of Technology

Over the past 14 years I have been involved in information technology. 10 years of this has been focused on carrier / ISP voice and data networks.  I've built networks from the ground up. Literally.  I've worked on everything from outside plant (the wires in the ground) to the devices that deliver VOIP services to your home or business. 

A few things I've done with my career : 

Contracting with the US Army to build fiber optic infrastructure for their secure and non-secure networks. 

Deploying Metaswitch based voice services to businesses. 

Upgrading a network to be MPLS capable which allowed an ISP to add a lot of new services. 

Being part of an engineering team that lead Vonage to purchase Telesphere Networks

Creating fraud detection and analysis tools to stop VOIP hackers. 

Frequently I am asked to teach a concept to someone. This lead me to create my Udemy instructor profile. 

I strive to make these teaching sessions informative, fun, and upbeat.
