How to make a course on Udemy?
Let’s start with the production. You have to prepare your video or presentation that you will use as a tool to teach your students. Prepare it as soon as you can because making a video will eat so most of your time. You can use everything you already have to minimize expenses just like what Nick did. Using his wife’s dslr and web camera he was able to record and produce videos and finished his course in a month. .
When marketing your book, try giving it out for free to as many people as you can. The goal is to get at least 1,000 reviews so that the Udemy algorithm will start promoting your course. This strategy can also be done on Amazon.

Udemy gives a 40% affiliate cut to their affiliates. Pick a niche, get some traffic by writing blogs or review in that niche, then put affiliate links to courses in that niche. You can model after Nick Loper’s blog here.
