10 Free Tools For Udemy Instructors
This online forum is the best way to launch a new course and grow your student enrollments for social proof. If you have already post a free course coupon in the Udemy Studio it might already be listed on Best Black Hat Forum. Register and the search the site first then make sure you read their guidelines for posting free and discounted course coupons to the site. I launched a new course a few weeks prior to posting this and have almost 1,600 students enrolled in the new course. Now I can cross promote my other Udemy courses to these new students. I’ll talk more about cross promoting Udemy courses in a future blog post so make sure you sign up to receive word of my future post.
The Udemy Blog
Udemy has a great blog full of free information for instructors including this article “Guide to Grow Your Traffic”. Blog readers can also get 50% OFF on any Udemy course.
Letting others market your course through affiliate marketing lets you make some extra money from your courses even though you split some of the earnings with someone else. This site is one of many where you can list your course coupon typically for free and also provides a Course Marketing List for Udemy Instructors of all the sites you can post discount coupons or free coupons for your course.
Watch Instructor Hangouts
Watch Hangouts with other Udemy Instructors includes these 2 Hangouts with some of Udemy’s Top Instructors like Alun Hill, Diane Darling, Phil Ebiner, Rob Cubbon, Grant Weherley, Matt Bernstein and myself moderating our discussion. Watch “Learn How To Increase Your Udemy Course Revenue – Hangout With The Expert Instructors” and “Chart Your Udemy Course For 2015 : Hangout With The Expert Instructors” for some great advise from marketing your course, making more revenue and course creation.
Mix for PowerPoint
Office Mix is a free add-on for PowerPoint that lets you get interactive with your PowerPoint presentations and lets instructors embed elements like video. Microsoft Office itself has become quite affordable and you can access Office 365 for less than $10 a month for all the Office apps. I use them on both my Windows laptops, my Chromebook via the Chrome browser and my Android tablet with their new Office apps for Android. It makes it easy to build your course presentation while on the go and create some great looking courses along with building a relationship with your students.
How to Create Your Udemy Course
Watch this free Udemy course on how to create your own Udemy course. Taught by the Udemy Instructor Team and offers lots of useful advice to those just starting on the platform.
