    Have you taught a course on Udemy? What did you think of it?

    I am considering doing a course on Udemy and was wondering if any of my fellow hubbers have done so and if it was an enjoyable and profitable experience for you? Can you make decent sideline money on Udemy?

    Hi there Christin

    If you have something to show that others wish to learn, I see no reason why there should not be profit, and all parties will benefit.

    Personally I have looked into the concept of incorporating Udemy as a platform to showcase my how to videos. I have not begun the process as of yet, but I think it will be a worthwhile cause.

    My particular expertise is 'drywall comb textures' and judging by my youtube videos, my video tutorials placed on Udemy, may be worthwhile for others to learn from, also beneficial for myself, as the creator/publisher.

    Also, one can keep the cost of showing their video, to a minimum, to encourage more purchasers, as you upload each video only once, and then the rest follows.

    It all sounds good to me, and I have carefully watched all of their free 'how to's' on getting started as a vendor.

    Christin, if you do go ahead with your Udemy venture, please let me know how you get on (or maybe a good topic for a hub.)

    Finally, a little insight; everybody want's to be successful, but not everybody is prepared to put in the work to enable them to get there.

    (End of insight)

    Sorry I couldn't provide you with user experience, as per your question, but I hope this helps, somewhat.

    Regards, Dale

      Also, Christin, there is another paid video host platform at mindbites.com, that you may wish to consider

      Thanks. I'll check out the mindbites as well and keep you posted on my Udemy progress as I go along should I do it.  I'm definitely a hard worker and a freelancer by trade, so that isn't a problem to put in the effort smile

    Udemy is a good way of earning passive income providing you put the effort into creating a good quality course and take the time to market your course through social media, your website, in any ebooks you have etc.

    It is possible to make a decent profit through Udemy. In the past I've helped some of my virtual assistant clients put together Udemy courses. Some of them made £1000+ a month whilst others only made around £50 a month.

    The ones earning £1000+ built up an email marketing list first, asking their subscribers and social media followers what they wanted to see in the course and created an eBook on a related topic to sell on Amazon.

      Thanks, I've heard from others there is decent money to be made there.  I have some niche hubs that I thought would cross promote a course nicely and the course I want to do hasn't been done to death yet.

    I have heard it is a great marketing tool and can lead to a nice income. I have heard of other authors using it if they have the right materials and time to make it lucrative and useful to their readers.
