Hi Everyone:

I was asked on the Marketing and Promotion forum to explained how the animated videos were created that you see on Udemy as my promo videos. You can click on each class to see them.



Step 1:  I created a free account with powtoons.   http://www.powtoon.com/

Step 2:  I browsed their templates and found one I liked.

Step 3:  I replaced their "script" with mine. I kept their music.

Step 4:  I saved it and it will generate a link. You cannot download the mp4 with the free version.

Step 5:  I found a seller on Fiverr.com (2 different ones) but will recommend: https://www.fiverr.com/godbendz

Step 6:  I communicated with them before I ordered the gig. I sent them the link.

Step 7:  They said "no problem" we can do it. I ordered their gig.

Step 8: I now have the mp4 in which I can post it where I like-Udemy, Youtube (with added coupon slide).

Note: You have the option of not having the music or you can have them to lower the volume to very low if you plan to do voiceover (reading the script). Then you can place it in your video editing software (Movie Maker etc...) to add your voice as it is playing. 

Hope this helps.

Hi Jeff, thanks for the feedback. I will plan to make the changes on the video that is on Udemy. When in movie maker, instead of clicking save for youtube, I will save for HD.  This class is a Udemy front runner for me without the mold remediation. I am hoping this helps increase the conversion.

Erika! Great job on thinking of creative courses to create. I love it. I would recommend making all videos in HD which gives clarity to the video. Also, you might find better success if you narrate the video to give it more context and have music throughout. Overall though, I really like that you take something personal and created a course from it. It's something we can all learn from.

Hi Everyone:

I recently completed a Mold Remediation Project on my home. It was a roller coaster, but I survived.  I added the pictures to YouTube. I included a coupon on the YouTube video to the Udemy class in which I added my lessons learned from this experience to my previous existing class on Udemy "Hire a Home Improvement Contractor with Confidence."

Here is the link: https://youtu.be/7GuFHLrfmls

Hi Everyone:

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to everyone who signed up for the class during the promo period. I was able to hit my student count goal. The coupon is no longer valid. Now, I am hoping with your help to hit my review count goal of 20. Let's go Team!

Comment by Ericka Joseph on March 3, 2015 at 5:59pm

Hi Instructors, thanks to everyone who showed support during phase one of marketing of my Udemy class. I am down to the last 15 coupons. Grab them before they are gone. If you are 50% convince Homeschooling your child is what you want to do but are not sure what it looks like, this is your class.
