MBA2069 Should You Sell Your Online Course on Udemy?

Udemy: it’s got a quarter million courses on just about every topic under the sun — and an audience of tens of millions of potential students.

Sounds like a great place to sell your own course, doesn’t it? 

…or is it?

There’s never been a better time to sell your expertise and create a revenue stream as an online teacher, trainer, or coach. But whenever you sell your wares in someone else’s shop, it comes at a cost. 

In Udemy’s case, the question is: is it worth that cost?

Today, we break down how Udemy works for course creators — including how they calculate their cut of the money your courses bring in. We’ll discuss the upsides, the downsides, what kinds of courses do best on Udemy, and of course, whether or not you should do it.

Find out if Udemy is the right move for you, or if it’s better to stay independent. Click Play!
