    For more exposure, post your photos / images on flickr. Be a part of community there, help people with your expertise and let them know you offer such a course.

    Good Luck!

    Join a few photography groups on FB and be active. Show them your skills behind the camera and then pitch your product.

    good advice by all..............take your choice. I'm interested in Udemy. If you look at at top sellers then you are looking at over $6m in revenue. Ok Udemy take about half that but could you cope with living on $3m ? at least for a little while?

    If the niche exists for it, then reaching your target audience is incredibly easy. You already have 1,200 members on your list. How did you acquire them? Continue to acquire this way. If you have a website, encourage the opt-in, provide a freebie demonstrating your expertise, and continue to send them tips (and pitches) so that they add perceived value to your information and your course.

    Sounds like a "money-making" niche project. You should start an affiliate program, do social media, and do some offline marketing too. Be professional, go and get a business card and everything.

    And you said you're offering 62% off your course right now. How much does it normally cost? Maybe you don't have to shave 62% of your profits with each sale that you make.

    Udemy is a great marketplace. I would suggest that you firstly go through the courses there that tell how to truly leverage the potential of udemy.
    Additionally, you can sell your photography & Photography course on Facebook. Look for Shopify's FB Shop solution. Show-case your water-marked images on FB to let the world know that you have the mettle and forte. Foster a community. Engage and then subtly promote your own course.

    great advice from a lot of people here. I would personally start on udemy because it has a lot of exposure these days.. could someone tell me do you have to agree to not sell your course anywhere else when working with udemy?

      No - the good news is that you can sell your course anywhere else. The only restriction is that you cannot sell a course on Udemy that is openly available for free elsewhere (e.g. on YOuTube)

    I think the photography forum is very nice place to sell your product, since corresponds to your market, you just need to give education in advance and share tips in the forum to be more easy to sell these your products

    Offline advertising in a photography magazine could yield some good results. Many photographers and wannabe photographers prefer the printed image to the electronic one. Also, you could find a photography club and offer a discount to their members.

    Do you want to be a photographer/instructor... or a marketer?

    Why not set your course up as a paid membership, with an affiliate program. Get the right affiliates, and let them do the selling for you.

    They already have the reach into the market that you are trying to reach, and constantly hone their skills to increase that reach.

    Eliminate your current discount, and use the difference in price to pay commissions to the affiliates.

    I would go for photography forums and blogs. Write some interesting content on the topic, but not disclose all information on the course. Mention that you have more knowledge to share for those who re willing to learn. Look for people who are asking questions that you can answer. Spread the word about your course when you have a chance.

    I'm confused by what you're saying . . .

    You already have 1200 paying customers yet you don't know where to find more customers?

    I think you're crazy! Your emphasis is on the one time sale of your course. If I were you I would forget that - you've already got that covered. Work on repeat sales to existing customers - back end sales.

    If I were you I would create a paid membership site for all those customers and figure out what else you can sell to them.

    I would also create a web site (an online studio) where you sold photography (of your graduated students, of course for a fee) so they have somewhere to exhibit their work. You charge a flat fee or percentage of the sale.

    The up-sells and cross-sells are limited only by your imagination.

    Create Yahoo Answer or other social network, forum, give them the best answer with your link. Or you can make a public page on FB, provide some basic content and make a video, in the end you can write down you have a course let them make the purchase.

      I would also recommend Udemy - I have 23 courses published on Udemy and it's making me a healthy monthly income. (about 98% passive - you DO have to answer the occasional student question every now and then!

      What's great about Udemy is how they actively promote your course all over the internet. (if you're opted into promotions - you can also decide not to opt in and just promote your courses yourself)

      This allows you to focus on creating quality content and building more and more courses.

      I also like that the students there are more open to learning new things and often explore a variety of new topics - kinda like "snacking" on new topics.

      Udemy was at 2 million students at the end of 2013 and they added another 3 million students in 2014, so now they are at 5 million students.

      With 25,000 courses available to serve 5 million students, I love those odds!

      By the way, if you want to learn more about Udemy, just private message me and I will be happy to answer any questions.

    Udemy and SkillFeed would be ideal. I made good money on both platforms. Just create an account and start uploading! Udemy is really strict tho, just make sure your coure is 16x9 aspect ratio.

    I would think udemy, facebook and ppc(Google, Bing) would do very well for this.
