Section 1: Introduction
01:25

Are you looking to build a Udemy course? If you are, you may have asked yourself the question “is there demand for my course?” or “how can I be sure that my course will be a success?”

These are extremely valid concerns that you should have as a course creator. Even if there is demand for your course, with over 30,000 courses taught by 18,000 instructors, it’s easy for your course to get lost amongst the competition.

But have no fear...


Make sure you get a free trial access to our tool, Impactana, to use throughout the duration of the course here https://app.impactana.com/signup before you start the course.

Section 2: What to focus on when creating a Udemy course
04:34

In this awesome video tutorial, I’m going to show you how to use Impactana to generate a huge number of Udemy course ideas in no time by looking through Slideshare, YouTube and other online content!

By taking a look at what content has been best received in our niche, we’ll be able to spot trends, see what topics are generating traction online, and identify many Udemy course possibilities!

Ready? Great, let’s begin.

03:38

Before you take the painstaking time to create your Udemy course, it’s a good idea to see whether there is any demand for your course in the first place. The last thing you want is to find is a lack of interest in your course after you’ve spent countless hours creating it.

In this video, we’re going to use Impactana to look through Udemy and see whether your course idea has generated student interest in the past! Ready?

Let’s begin.

06:05

I am going to answer the age old question of “what should I include in my Udemy course curriculum?”

And I’m going to show you how to use Impactana to find exactly what kinds of course content will appeal the most to your audience.

To do this, we’re going to take a look at your most successful Udemy competitors, peek into their courses, and see exactly what has worked. Ready. Set. Let’s get started.

Section 3: Who or what can have an influence on your Udemy course
04:30

You see, creating the perfect Udemy course is only half the battle. The other half involves reaching out and promoting the course to prospective students.

While you may have painstakingly crafted the finest Udemy course around… It’s easy for it to get lost amongst the 32,000 other courses competing for students.

I’m going to show you how to use Impactana to find hundreds, if not thousands of influencers in your niche. We’re going to look for influencers who have already shared popular content, and therefore might be willing to share your course!

04:17

I am going to be turning our attention to the 3rd most popular website in the world, YouTube. Packed with vloggers and channels followed by loyal subscribers, getting a mention from these YouTubers can prove to be a very profitable opportunity for our Udemy course.

Ready? Let’s get started.

04:20

Guest blogging is a hugely popular way of promoting products online. It simply works like this. You, a writer, offer to write a free blog post for a website, in exchange for an opportunity to promote your product in that post. The website owner gets free content and your product gets exposure. Everybody wins! Like with finding YouTubers, finding top performing blogs that accept guest posts is as easy as one, two, three using Impactana! Ready to see how? Let’s do it.

Section 4: What to do after releasing your Udemy course
04:48

In this video, I’m going to show you how you can use Impactana to stay on-top of the game after you have released your course. Many top performing Udemy instructors add updates to their courses as a way of enticing more students to sign-up. It adds a tonne of value, and shows students that they are committed to their progress!

We are going to use Impactana to find interesting update ideas to add to your course’s curriculum, and also use it to see exactly how well your course is doing!

Ready? Let’s get started.

04:20

Sadly, this will be the last video in the series… On the upside, I hope that you have learned a lot using your Impactana free trial. We’ve identified course demand, generated course ideas, promoted our course by sourcing influencers, and have found a number of excellent course update ideas. I’m sure that you’d agree with me when I say that your Udemy course is now in better shape than it was before.

Great. Let’s get started.
