Life after skillfeed?

9 replies
Hi,
I have courses on Udemy. I was looking to put some videos on skillfeed. I learned today that it'll shutdown on Septembre 30.
Don't really know where to go now. Any ideas?
I don't want to host videos myself.
Thanks

      Skillshare is horrible and a time-waster. Why? Weak unknowledgeable support who have no clue what they're doing and awkward approval then disapproval process. You're basically fighting over peanuts in earning anything for all your effort if anything at all with their revenue generation structure.

      Stick with Udemy. Yes, I was sad to see Skillfeed go. They were the second best option right after Udemy.

    this year i made about 18950 Euro from Udemy and 2600 euro from skillfeed. All organic. But with skillfeed closing down, I'm trying to find a similar platform(s) to Skillfeed and Udemy, but I just can't find the right platforms. Sadly enough, I have not been able to find the right platform. Skillshare kind of s*cks. and teachable(Fedora) is isn't a similar concept. If anyone has any ideas? please let me and us know!

    Thanks!

    It's an inevitable evil. But fear not. Once you learn how to get traffic to your hosted videos, then traffic to your website from it, then eventually sales.... you can liberate yourself out of the prison of your mind... the prison of not wanting to market your videos yourself online, and drive a lot of traffic to your own site. Learn how to expand outside your comfort zone. Murphy's Law is true. So is the Uncertainty Principle.

      As Randall alluded to, there are no other great options at this point in time, so I would recommend that you learn how to market your courses yourself so as to maximize your Udemy sales.

      Then, import your Udemy courses to Teachable / Fedora so you can have more control over your sales, pricing and students.

      Teachable has an IMPORT feature that automatically imports your Udemy courses into your Teachable school. Great feature. I currently have over 60 courses on my Teachable school. (35 are my own published Udemy courses and the rest are PLR courses)

        I've looked into Fedora but haven't started using it yet. I'm not happy with Udemy. They give coupon codes out and when people buy my course the discount comes out of my cut, not their's. That sucks. If they want to give out coupons they should give up some of their cut of the money. I have a $29 course that I have received as little as $2 for when someone purchases.

    Even if you put 'portions' of your training on Youtube, and provide links to your products in the description....

    You could pay a merchant like Clickbank, JVzoo, or any affiliate network fairly cheap.

    Then you get the best of both worlds, you keep selling 'French' courses, and likely recruit affiliates who'll promote it for you. Win/win
