One year ago, I put up my first Udemy course. Today, I now have 12 courses on the platform, over 20,000 students, and earned $41,876 (and counting thanks to the cyber Monday sale ongoing).
I am not posting this to brag, but hopefully to encourage those just starting out. I had ZERO audiences of my own when I started. I built one course and made $58 the first month, then worked on a second course. Month by month it grew, as my reviews built up (positively), students told their friends, and Udemy kept bringing in more students to the platform.

- Build Great Courses
There is no shortcut to success, it takes time and patience. Build great courses, you will get great reviews, and that will turn into more sales.
- Find your Niche
Look at Insights and find a hot topic with less competition. You don’t have to be the next Web Dev or Java Course. There are niches everywhere, you can make money in the niches!
Udemy isn’t a get rich quick scheme. My average course makes $300-500 a month, with one or two lucky course topics earning. $2000-3000.
