Less than 10 searches, but it's bringing in money
Inspired by the warm reception of my training videos within wealthy affiliate I decided to create a new course and publish it on udemy.com. I checked on Jaaxy using the search term "gutenberg course". Dang! Less than 10 searches using that phrase.
But I knew I was onto something. Even if no one was interested now, I knew that people would want to learn more about Gutenberg as the release date approached. So I planned the course and submitted a test video.
For the first course I did for udemy.com I had to submit a test video four times before I got one approved. I've learned a lot since then and this video passed with flying colours within hours.
There was only one other course on the same subject at udemy.com, and because I figured my course was better I priced it slightly higher than the competition.
To give the course a jumpstart I gave out a few free coupons hoping to get some five-star reviews. Thank you friends. Every review counts and every star counts. This is the way that new students determine which courses they are going to take.
11 days later the course is attracting new paying students. But not through my efforts, udemy is finding the students for me. This is almost passive income. Promotion is not my strong suit, I much prefer creating the videos. So having udemy find students for me is awesome.
I'll keep updating the course as changes are made to Gutenberg. So it's not completely passive income.
The videos at udemy.com are different to the videos I've done for Wealthy Affiliate. If you haven't seen them already, the WA videos are:
Now I'm looking for bright ideas for a subject for my next udemy course. What would you like to learn about?
PS I still have a few coupons available, you can contact me by private message.
