Course Description

Udemy Course Creation

Udemy course creation for those that want to create high quality in depth courses that deliver value to their students and teach online successfully.

Make Money Selling Your Expertise

Do you have expertise locked up in your brain that you think other people would be interested in?

Do you want to reach a wider audience?

Do you want to earn residual income from your expertise, income that continually works for you with only minimal effort on your part?

Then video training could be the very thing you have been looking for, a way to share your expertise to a wide audience and get paid for it again and again, whilst you are spending time with your family, enjoying your hobbies and even sleeping!

A video training course income never stops working for you.

Do not go blindly into your course. Mark makes good points in making a professional looking course on the thrift side. Save time and money by learning the tricks of the trade first. Making an online course requires preparation, planning, and proper tools. ~ April Alunsina Pagaling

Plan / Construct / Launch / Market Your Udemy Course

We will guide you through how to plan, launch and market your course with inside tips and techniques that will enable you to shorten your learning curve.

Differentiate Yourself With Quality Presentations

The online learning market is growing at an exponential rate, this means lots of opportunity, but also lots of competition in each sector.

To succeed in this new era of online training, your courses have to be powerful and professionally presented.

A media rich presentation, with slideshows, screenshares, talking heads and green screen technology will be much more powerful than a screen share video with audio.

Students want to engage with their instructors and this course will show you how to create media rich presentations that give that personal touch so that students come back for more courses.

Create Udemy Training Courses On A Budget

Video production can be expensive and time consuming to learn.

But what if you could produce video content on a low budget?

Creating high quality video training courses with the simple low budget set up that we teach you is now possible.

This course will give you all the information you need to get going.

Your Creativity

Being creative when technology is getting in the way can be very difficult, with this course, all the technical aspects of filming a presentation have been simplified so you have enough knowledge to actually get on with filming your course.

The powerful techniques and tools detailed in the course will enable you to create highly engaging course material and content that will help promote the value of your course and your expertise.
