You want to make more money with your online courses, right?

Do you want a step-by-step guide for launching your next course?

This is the 30-Day Udemy Course Launch Blueprint, a daily course that will help you have your best online course launch! FREE BONUSES for enrolling (see below).

After launching over 60 courses on Udemy, I know what it is like to have $10,000+ course launches. I also know what it is like to have course launches with depressing results. I've tried hundreds of different ways to promote my courses... now I have a precise strategy that actually works.


After enrolling in this course, you'll get daily instructions with to-do items leading up to the launch of your Udemy course. Think of me as your personal trainer! I'll be with you, every day, telling you the one task you should do that drives the most results. 

I don't just tell you what to do, I show you how to do it! This course includes CASE STUDIES that show you exactly what I did in my most successful online course launches.

This course includes FREE BONUSES! Everyone who enrolls gets:

  • Downloadable 30-day Blueprint PDF Schedule and Guide
  • Downloadable Audio Version of the course to take with you and listen wherever is convenient

Please only enroll in this course if you are a serious course creator and you are ready to take action every day. 

What types of things will you be doing in the next 30 days?

  • Building brand assets like website content and social media accounts
  • Creating a YouTube channel that drives traffic into a sales funnel
  • Building a sales funnel with great lead magnets and email sequences
  • Creating a free mini-course with your paid course materials
  • Driving traffic to your email list with better content marketing

This course doesn't stop helping you when you launch your course. Learn expert strategies to getting more course sales after your course launches. These strategies will work for all of your older courses as well!

You should be ready to dive right in to marketing your course when you begin the course. It will be beneficial if you already have your course content shot and edited, ready to upload. This course is not a training on how to create your online course. It is a course on how to launch your course.

Thank you for taking a moment to check out my course. I know you will love it! There is absolutely no risk to sign up. Get a 100% refund in the next 30 days if you don't like the course.

Day 27

Case Study - Day 27

One of the best ways to get people to know, like, and trust you is by building a community. Facebook Groups are a great way to build a community of like-minded learners interested in your content.

Check out samples from my own course launch with this case study lesson.

Case Study - Day 21

Reach out to bloggers in your niche. Ask them if they would share your free mini course (you’ll be creating this later) with their audience via a blog post and/or social media. Find at least one person who commits to this.

Like, comment, and share posts related to your course. Interact with people in groups related to your course. Spark dialogue and try to get people to join your group or like your page.

Day 13

Check out samples from my own course launch with this case study lesson.

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
