While the content of a training video may not be Oscar worthy or as funny as a Jim Carey movie, there are a few things you can do to improve them. You may… Read More →

Hi Rebecca, welcome.

Group Leader
Comment by Jeff Long on Wednesday

Hi Rebecca, thanks for joining the group. Damon has some great points that I would agree with. Is there something that seems like it would be easy to create and sell? Start with something that would be an easy win and move from there.

I would agree that working with themes is a good idea so you don't appear to offer to wide a variety of course topics. 

For better interactions with the group, please look for the "add a Discussion" area, which is found above this Comment Wall. That way people can follow your question and offer guidance along the way. That also keeps the comment wall free for simple things that don't require ongoing questions/answers.

Welcome, Rebecca! Yes, start with a theme. If you have a lot of experience that's good. that's what you want. See people are fickle when if comes to spending money. You never know what will work or sell.

Select a theme that aligns well with who you are, why you're here, and how you might achieve the thing(s) that God placed you on this planet to do.

From there I would suggest either a blog, podcast and/or YouTube channel and begin producing frequent regular content there. Once you begin to develop a following then put together a product to sell.

Get Response has a great list building program. Try it. It will give you a good understanding on where to start. http://www.getresponse.com/features/list-building-program.html

Also Read Claude Hopkins' books "My Life In Advertising" and "Scientific Advertising." Although written in 1920s, the principles are very relevant today because it's based on human nature.

Hi! I would like to start making online content to sell. I have a lot of experience in training and content development and overwhelmed on how to narrow down where to start? Should I start with a theme, like customer service and make content under that theme or a variety of content? Any suggestions and tips on where to begin? Thanks!

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.

Comment by Ericka Joseph on March 15, 2015 at 4:51pm

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
