Hi everyone,

I recently launched a Udemy course focused on helping students pass specific IT certification exam. Despite putting in a lot of effort to create high-quality content, I'm struggling with getting traction. So far, I’ve had only one sale and no reviews. The top udemy teacher for the specific certification/course Ive made it about has about 30K students, the next biggest is 6k students. Below that everyone else is under 300 students. I do show on the first page when searching on Udemy, and there isnt many courses available for this certification since its pretty new.

How can I get more reviews and sales on my course. In a positive light I have got 1 student, so somebody did actually buy the course which is amazing feeling, gives me validation that it must offer some value since they actually bought it.

Has anybody put a course on udemy before?

I am hoping to do more with this idea, future courses, exam questions, 1 on 1 teaching but I want to know there is a demand for it I guess

Thank you
Liam

Hello Liam,

To get more reviews, you'll need more students. Anyway, I read reviews on Udemy with caution, since Udemy pop-up pesters people to leave a review after completing, well, not much of the courses.

Have you got a YouTube channel? I've found some courses searching on YT. Put some basic stuff on YT, and direct viewers to your Udemy page.
  • When did you post your course?
  • Did it coincide with a big Udemy sale (one of many)? I never purchase at the full price shown. Udemy absolutely requires volume over price.
  • What is the certification?
  • How long have the three competitors been on Udemy for?
  • Is your course a whole lot better than the 30K tutor's?
  • Why is your course 'not better' but more valuable than the others?
  • Have you sent out some coupon codes?

How are you promoting it?
Why did you choose Udemy?
How did you determine demand for your niche?

What you described is the Labour theory of value - a Marxist concept that something has value because someone put effort into making it.

Like all Marxist concepts, this is totally bogus.

In the marketplace, something has value if someone wants it. That’s it.
