Hosting online course, udemy and Clickbank

11 replies
Hi all, first time here.

I just published a course on udemy at: https://www.udemy.com/how-to-beat-wa...e=rMSGakC1kkSY

I really want to promote this course with an affiliate site like Clickbank. I see a few options.

I could create a sales page on my domain where a customer can buy and download a coupon that allows them to get the course free on udemy?

Or, I could host the course in another place using Vimeo or Amazon s3 which would allow the customer to access the course without going to udemy?

I guess I quite like the way udemy is set up for delivering content and it would be nice for all the customers to be put together to form a type of community.

Would appreciate some feedback, how do people go about selling their courses online?

Many thanks

        Hi,

        You have around three general options for hosting:
        1)Create your own website for your courses and handle delivery and payment processing yourself
        2)Use one of the course hosting websites to create your own school, you pay them a transaction fee on each sale or pay a set monthly fee
        3)Put your course onto a platform and have them pay you a portion of each sale (this is what you are doing now)

        I'm not logged into my Udemy account right now, but I don't remember seeing an option to create coupons automatically.
        I could create a sales page on my domain where a customer can buy and download a coupon that allows them to get the course free on udemy?
        You would have to either manually create a unique coupon for each customer, create a coupon with a limit on how many customers or one with a time limit of a few days. With the last two options there is a risk that the coupon could get sent to people who did not pay to download the coupon.

        I think to do what you asked, you would need to use option two or option one with your custom solution. I wouldn't recommend this for just one course though, unless it was really profitable.

      Creating webinar is really high profitable. But need some technical skills.
      Also with webinar you can promote high ticket products even at $497. Conversion rate are very good with webinar.

      Good Luck!

    For Udemy, I'm opted into some of their promotions. I have my own coupon on my website and I have a mailing list.

    Hi,
    thanks for this, option 2 sounds good. What course websites allow you to create your own school? that sounds interesting.

      Checkout 'usefedora' and 'lfe'

      Udemy has an affiliate program available for affiliates to promote your courses through Linkshare?
      A number of instructors are not happy with the affiliate program. Don't think the Udemy affiliates are selling your course like an IM affiliate. They create discount coupons e.g. 75% off coupons. You have the option of opting out of the affiliate program though.

      Hi jbmarwood,

      Congrats on getting your Udemy course published!

      It's in a great topic, too.

      A couple of thoughts came to mind as I read through your post.

      1. If you are wanting to sell your course on Clickbank - is it because you want to have affiliates market your course? If so, did you know that Udemy has an affiliate program available for affiliates to promote your courses through Linkshare?

      2. Yes, you can sell the Udemy course on a different platform and, after they've bought from you, you then give them a "free" coupon link to your course. I do this with some of my courses. I agree with you, Udemy is a GREAT way to deliver video training - it keeps people involved and excited about learning the courses.

      Hope this helps,

      Dave

    Udemy's Linkshare program gets very few sales but their marketplace of ready to buy students is pretty great compared to Skillshare, Skillfeed or other elearning platforms.
    UseFedora doesn't have a CB integration nor its own marketplace (nor does it integrate with Aweber). That being said you pay a really small fee for having it under your own domain.

    I was looking on ways to integrate CB with UseFedora too (I have a question on their ticketing system regarding this) but they are a startup and pretty slow to respond it seems.
