So, you published your course on Udemy and you’re wondering how to take your course promotion into your own hands and become a Udemy Bestseller. Well, you came to the right place!

It’s time to introduce you to our Forever Young Formula. What is the Forever Young Formula, you ask? The Forever Young Formula is the series of actions you’ll need to take if you want to stay “forever young” on Udemy—that is, earning consistent, sustainable income now and in the future.

In this article, we’ll link to resources that help you grow your traffic and convert your traffic to students. Let’s get started!




1. Add Courses to Udemy

The first step in staying “Forever Young” on Udemy is publishing new courses. Check out our official How to Create Your Udemy Course course by our wonderful Udemy Instructor Team to learn new tips and tricks for your new course creation.

2. Grow Your Traffic

A huge benefit to being an instructor on Udemy is that whenever you promote your course using your instructor coupon code, you receive 97% for all sales coming through your coupon. Amazing, right? This means if you’re getting 30 people each month to join your course at $39 through your coupon code, then you’re pocketing $1,134.90. Not bad at all.

So, how can you increase your sales potential, so you’re getting 30+ people to enroll into your courses each month without you bending over backwards?

The good news is, there are a myriad of ways to grow your traffic. We created a guide to give you several tactics to choose from, depending on your interests and strengths. Keep reading to find out how to grow your traffic by leveraging YouTube, webinars, ebooks, speaking opportunities, and more!

3. Convert Traffic to Students

You published your course on Udemy, and you may have executed the course launch strategy of the century—but you’re now wondering: How do Udemy instructors continue to drive $500 and $5,000 every month through their own promotions (on top of what Udemy is driving to their courses)? In other words: How do I automate my marketing so I can make a sustainable income on Udemy?

Whether you have 10 or 10,000 YouTube subscribers, 20 or 20,000 monthly visitors to your website, do this today so you can start doubling your automated course sales. Make sure to check the full posts (links below).

4. Repeat

After completing each step, you just start over for your next course. You should constantly push out more courses on trending topics that your audience is demanding. We learned from previous instructors that being a first mover, releasing a course on a topic that hasn’t been taught yet, on certain trending course topics will help drive sales.
