my UNBIASED view about Udemy

Internet marketers are NOT fans of Udemy.

That’s a course platform where anyone who wants to teach can offer a course to anyone who wants to learn. Students pay for the classes they take and payment is shared between the platform and the teacher.

Internet marketers, who often make money selling courses, say it undervalues your courses, you don’t own the platform, you don’t own your students, and so on.

But they’re dumb and dead WRONG.

Sure, if you’re planning to use Udemy directly to make money and get rich, good luck. Teachers are amongst the LEAST paid in our economy… why would online teachers fair any better?

Keep in mind though, Udemy is no more than a content sharing platform like YouTube for video, Tumblr for blogs, Twitter for tweets, Twitch for streaming, Spotify for podcasts/music, and Kindle for books.

What all these platforms have in common is they’re built around (1) a community of people who create a specific kind of content that grows the platform…and (2) people who are interested in consuming that kind of content.

Read (2) again. Carefully.

Each platform monetises the content created by its creators (by selling ads, products, subscriptions, or courses) and incentivises creators to create, by giving them a tiny piece of the action.

It’s tough to make income–significant or otherwise–from that tiny slice of action. But if you leverage your choice of platform to benefit from the congregation of users around a type of content you’re interested in creating…you can do really well!

Suppose you made a video and poured your soul into it. You have two choices to get it watched: Upload it to your website and have exactly 0 viewers…or upload it to YouTube and instantly access their zillions of daily visits from people LOOKING for videos to watch.

Same with courses on Udemy.

Same with podcasts on Spotify.

The question is then, how do you make a LOT of money for your efforts while using a platform to gain an audience?

Simple. Build the audience (using your content) on the platform, and then take them to your site for extra stuff.

Eg, if you sold a starter course on Udemy, you can offer a follow-up course that goes into more depth at your website. You’ll make little on the Udemy course, but that’s ok. Think of it like getting paid to run an ad that generates an audience. But with the second course at your website, you keep ALL the money from its sale.

The Super Traffic Machine best helps with the second part.

It doesn’t impose on you which platforms you use to generate your traffic. We certainly give you three suggestions with detailed instructions on how to get traffic with Reverse SEO, Content Marketing, and Google Ads.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t ALSO use Udemy, YouTube, or Tumblr to build your audience around your creative content…if that’s what you wanna do.

Simply funnel your earned audience into your Super Traffic Machine. Which consists of your own website and content to engage your qualified visitors, a lead capture page to capture visitors as subscriber leads, an affiliate product to monetise your audience further, and regular follow-up to promote your additional products.

Also, we’re doing a live class at the end of this month for Super Traffic Machine students, where i setup in front of you a complete course-selling business website from A to Z. It’s named 90min Business Command Center. In it, you’ll watch…

   * how to create a beautiful website that’s fast and secure, and hosted for FREE (including its domain name!)

   * how to create beautiful, functional landing pages, legal pages, sales pages, and other crucial pages every website should have, without code or being any good at design.

   * how to do email marketing, get your mail delivered to inboxes where they can be read, and do it within your website’s admin dashboard, WITHOUT paying service fees

   * how to sell digital, physical, and subscriptions products, complete with all the infrastructure to sell, protect, and deliver your products, and manage customers within the same unified dashboard.

   * how to create opportunities to increase your average order value at checkout by using one-click upsells and downsells that streamline the buying process.

   * how to create and protect an online classroom, also within your website’s dashboard, where you can interact with and manage students, give quizzes and assignments, and more.

   * how to secure your digital assets including videos, ebooks, worksheets, etc so that ONLY paying students can access them and only while using your website so your hard work cannot be stolen.

and a lot more!

There’s a dedicated page explaining all the details of this extra training (it’s THAT big a deal and it’s THAT good):

It’s gonna be fun and HIGHLY actionable. If you miss out, you’ll kick yourself for years. i don’t plan to sell this or make it available to anyone beyond Jan 31st.

What you’ll learn in this bonus alone will save you THOUSANDS of dollars in service fees and would cost you a fortune and years to learn on your own. but it will NOT be for sale.

I offer it free, with the following strings attached…

I welcome both new and old students of the Super Traffic Machine. You have to join the Super Traffic Machine before Jan 31st. Even if you’re a past member, you MUST renew your subscription and keep it active to access this and more planned bonus materials and support webinars. Nobody can get this or any future training product or service i ever release on its own, outside a Super Traffic Machine subscription.

More details about this and how to join us in the live training session are available at the dedicated bonus link below…
