Check out below: I have a special time limited offer for my Udemy: Understanding Strategic Course Design at the bottom of this post!

What are the 16 Udemy Course Categories?

Udemy provides you with the option of the following Categories, in alphabetical order: [Read more...]

Do You Need to Get Investor Ready to Raise Funding for Your Startup?

6MS.301

 

There is nothing worse than spending weeks and months working on your Startup, finally getting a meeting with that key potential investor and then blowing the meeting!

Disaster!

This can set you back and even sound the death knell for your Startup?

What if you don’t have the experience you need to raise capital successfully?

Do you know how to speak “Investor Speak”?

But, What if you could learn this in less than 2 hours?

The Entrepreneurs Guide to Startup Funding – Udemy Course written by John Colley, The Six Minute Strategist

Learn how to communicate your vision, prepare your business plan and financial model and, most importantly, learn the inside track on how to pitch investors!

What if you also got an Outline Business Plan, a Financial Plan Template and in addition, an Investor Readiness Checklist.

But how can you share this with your team?

Easy, download all the slides with the attached notes and take them through the course yourself, or better still, connect your computer in the “Board Room” and put the lectures up on the screen.

Couldn’t be easier!

Take a look at this brief video which summarises the course:

 

Overcome your Experience Deficit!

If you are raising capital, the chances are this is your first time and yet the people to whom you are pitching have done this dozens of times.

You need to overcome thisExperience Deficit and ensure that when you get your one shot at pitching them, you are professional, well organised and that you deliver a concise and relevant message.

Its hard enough to get funding; without the proper preparation, its nearly impossible!

I have advised dozens of start up companies and have distilled my experience to help you get Investor Ready!

I am sharing my experience with you to help you close the Experience Deficit!

Over 1,100 Students have subscribed to this Course!

This Introductory Course covers 36 Major Issues which are critical to startups.

7.003 7.004

 

 

 

I have provided a Video of each Topic, with a downloadable Slide Deck in PDF Format. I also include a PDF at the end with a text summary of all the issues covered so that you have a checklist to take away.  The Course should take no more than 45 minutes.

If you want to start learning about Startups, this introductory course is simple and straightforward and will introduce you to 36 of the major topics you will need to learn about if you are serious about Startups.

Six Key Benefits of the Course are:

1. Markets: I help you to understand the importance of ensuring that a market exists for your product before you start

Eight Things You Need to Know About Your Competition on Udemy

6MS.299

When creating a course on Udemy, you have to remember that your potential students have a choice.  The first decision that they make is whether to buy a course but the most important decision is whether they should buy your course.   That being the case, you should at the very least understand what your competitors are doing around you.  In other words, you must put yourself in the shoes of your students.  Approach the issue as a buyer not a seller.

 

These are exactly the issues I studied before setting out to create my first course, The Entrepreneurs’ Guide to Startup Funding (click for  60% Discount offer) which has over 1,100 subscribers and it was this knowledge that I then used to create my second Udemy Course (this time created for Udemy instructors); Udmey: Understanding Strategic Course Design (Click for 70% Discount offer – see below).

If you want to learn more about my Strategic Design Course, I have a special offer for you at the end of this post.

1. Content

The first and, perhaps most important factor, is content.  Is the content of your course the same as one of your competitors?  [Read more...]

10 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Udemy Topic

6MS.298

Josh Kaufman’s book The Personal MBA has a brief section in which he sets out 10 points you need to consider when evaluating a market.  Udemy instructors are as much Entrepreneurs as someone opening a corner shop, so I thought it would be interesting to consider his criteria in the context of creating a Udmey course to see what insights this revealed.

 

If you want to learn more about how to design a Udemy Course, I have a special offer for you at the end of this post.

How urgently do your students need this knowledge right now?  [Read more...]

What is the best Pricing Strategy on Udemy? Or Anywhere Else!

I have now been on Udmey for two and a half months and if I have learned one thing, publishing your course on Udemy is just the start. To be successful on Udmey you need to take a very proactive approach to the marketing of your Course and a key aspect of this is Pricing.

If you build it, they will NOT come!

This is a discussion on how to adopt the best pricing strategy on Udemy, but I believe many of these points will apply to any information products, whether published on a third party platform or on your own blog.

Understanding Strategic Course Design – Special Offer

If you want to learn more about the Strategy of Course Creation on Udmey, including pricing, you can access my course: Udmey, Understanding Strategic Course Design. I have a Special Coupon Code to access this $199 for just $49 for a limited time and for a limited number of coupons. You can find this at the end of this post.  Note all links will now take you the Course which I am also hosting on Usefedora.com – its the same Course!

Key Point: What does this tell you about my view on pricing!!! ;)

How to Write a Best Selling Course on Udemy

I have written and published two courses on Udemy, one of which has over 1100 subscribers, less than two months after its launch. I want to share with you how I wrote this course, step by step, to help you with your course.

Remember the key to writing a successful, high quality, course is to get organised and create a process which you than then replicate for your next course. Be prepared to amend the process to suit your own approach and style as you work through.

Before you start make sure you watch the Udemy Course, “How to Create a Udemy Course”, which explains the technicalities of how to use the platform, the basis of basic course design and helps you with some of the technical issues involved in course creation. You can find the course here: https://www.udemy.com/official-udemy-instructor-course/?tc=howtocreatecourse.plantab

Course Objective

This is critical. Each course should have a specific objective. The course content you create must have a laser focus on achieving that objective. If content does not contribute to the objective, take it out.

Course Length

My first objective is to produce a comprehensive but well structured and compact course. My goal is to have between 60 and 90 minutes of video content. Udemy stipulates courses should contain a minimum of 30 minutes of video content but if you are going to charge a reasonable price for your course, I prefer to produce a course which is longer than the minimum.

Remember the objective is to create a great learning experience and value for your students but this does not mean you put everything you know on a topic in one course. If you can create three hours of content, break it down into an Introductory and Advanced Course. The objective from your perspective is to get your course completed, published and to start earning money from it.

Don’t forget there is a 30 Day, No Quibble, Money Back Guarantee available with all Udemy Courses!

So here is how I do it.

Decide on the topic

What is the problem/pain?

As with any product or solution you need to be addressing a need/a problem/a pain that your potential customers suffer from. In the case of this article, it is the need to understand how to go about writing a best selling course.

This problem needs to be something that has value to your customers. Is this something that they will pay money for you provide them with the convenience of a solution? The more painful the problem, the more they will be prepared to pay.

How large is your market?

If your course topic is very niche, “How to Breed Yellow Frogs” for instance, outside of those people who are fanatic about Yellow Frogs, you are not likely to sell many courses. One way of assessing this is to see what topics are already being addressed by instructors on Udemy. If there are already several successful courses around your potential topic, this is a good indicator of a market.

Look particularly at the prices being charged and the numbers of students who have subscribed for the course.

Another advantage of looking at these potentially competing courses is that you can take a close look at how they cover the topic. You can design your course to take a unique approach and thereby differentiate yourself in the market.

Do you have to be an Expert?

Yes and No. You should select a topic on which you have some knowledge, interest and expertise. Students will look at your profile and expect you to demonstrate some experience in the topic you wish to address. I have a background in Finance and Strategy.  Consequently, a Rollerblading Course from me is unlikely to fill potential students with confidence that I know anything about how to become a great Rollerblader!

When preparing your course I believe that you should include a research phase where you use the Internet to research your topic and make sure that you are covering all the salient points. Wikipedia is a great place to start here.

Create Your Main Lecture Structure

The key to a good course is one that is well structured. Bear in mind that you are aiming to create a course that lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. Excluding your short promo video (more on that later), you will need an introductory and closing lecture. These should be approximately 5 minutes each and no more.

That leaves you with between 50 and 80 minutes of video content to produce. In order to keep the pace of your course moving, I recommend each lecture should be around 5 to 8 minutes long. If you need longer than this, split it into two lectures. 10 lectures of 5 minutes = 50 minutes. 10 lectures of 8 minutes = 80 minutes. So there you have it. You need to structure your core lecture content into 10 lectures.

At this point, open a word document and list your 10 main headings. Note you are going to create your introductory and closing lectures last, so don’t worry about their content at this stage.

Key Points for each lecture

Having created your 10 main headings, it is time to put some meat on the bones. Thinking of your time constraints and lecture pace, I recommend 6 to 8 key points in each lecture. This will help your students absorb the information you are sharing with them in manageable chunks and aid their learning process.

By creating these bullet points, you are able to keep a clear overview of the content of your course and you are also creating the key points which will convert into a slide presentation, when you come to that stage

Key Lecture Materials

At this point I decide what materials I am going to provide for my students in each of the lectures. Udemy gives you the ability to up load a range of digital formats and you should select those which best suit your course content.

In my course on Strategic Udemy Course design, I uploaded all my Excel Spreadsheets and made them downloadable so that students could carry out their own analysis. In my best selling Entrepreneurs Guide to Startup Funding, I exported my slide decks with notes to PDF and made these available for download.

Don’t forget that most video software will enable you to copy the sound track of your video to a separate MP3 file, which you can make available as part of your course materials. If you combine these together into one MP3 file, you can provide your students with a “podcast” version of your course for them to listen to when they are out and about.

Don’t forget you can also create quizzes, which provide a bit of fun and interaction with your students.

While I am not going to cover course marketing in this post, you should give some consideration at this point, as to how you might create some limited content, which you can later repurpose as part of your marketing campaign.

Write detailed Notes

Now, revisit your course outline and bullet points for a third time. This time spend the time carefully writing out your course lecture notes, explaining all the detail you want to include in your course.

When you come to recording your videos, you can either read these notes (which I do not recommend) or use them as a detailed Aide Memoire for the voice content you then record.

As I am doing here, take the time to write proper notes and not just bullets. These notes can then form another part of your course materials, as lecture notes, or a course workbook, which the students can download to study.

If you produce a series of courses over time on connected topics, these notes might even become the genesis of your first ebook!

Always be planning ahead and thinking how you can repurpose content.

Decide On Your Presentation Style

There is no right or wrong answer to this question. I prefer to produce a slide deck and record a voice over using ScreenFlow (Camtasia is good too!). I can create recordings of my head talking to the camera if I wish using Screenflow, but I prefer to let the slides to the talking for me.

In my Introductory and Promo Videos I like to adopt a more personal approach, as this gives me the chance to establish a rapport with my students and give the students a chance to know who I am and what I look like – put a face to the voice before embarking on the course.

Produce Slide Decks and Transitions

In the next stage I decide on the look and feel of my slide deck and decide which transitions I am going to use. Think about keeping it clean and tidy and easy to read. I have to admit that I am not great at the creative side of things, so I try to keep it simple and learn from each video and course that I make.

At this point you might like to consider making a short (5 second) intro and outro for each lecture to give your course a more professional feel. This does not have to be much more than a short animated recording of the course title overlaid with a short music loop. Make sure you use royalty free music; I get mine from the library that comes with Garage Band on my Mac.

Record Videos

In this stage you set up your “studio” with your microphone and I recommend recording all your videos one after the other. If you have done the preparation I have outlined above, this will not be difficult and it will give your course a consistent look and feel.

If you are only doing voice overs, you will not need to worry about lighting. Do pay particular attention to audio quality. I recommend a short test run to make sure that the sound set up is a good as you can make it.

A good tip here is to find some free example videos that most instructors include within their course content to get a feel for how they have created their videos. Alternatively, sign up and take a couple of free courses to give yourself confidence that what you are doing is just as good.

Do all you can to exclude external noises. Make sure your family know you are recording and do not disturb you. Disconnect your land line phone. Make sure your mobile and iPad, if you have one, are switched off, as the telephone signal can create static interference in your recording.

Don’t forget to save your files and back them up immediately to a separate disk.

Record Wrap up video

Now you have recorded your course, turn your mind to your wrap up video. Make a list of six key bullets that your course has taught your students. You can summarise very briefly the 10 lectures but leave the students with a summary of the benefits they have gained from taking your course.

Be courteous and thank them for supporting you, giving of their time and wish them well, hoping they will benefit from what you have taught them.

Record Introductory Video

Now that you know what your course contains, you can go back to the start and write and record your Introductory Video. Use the same method as the rest of the course and aim to keep it tight and punchy. You are setting the tone for the rest of your course in this video.

Fill out details on Udemy

Now you can turn your attention to the Udemy website. Don’t forget to follow their Course Check list carefully. Complete your profile, highlighting your expertise relevant to the course you are teaching, fill out all the details of the Course Summary and then upload your course content and additional materials to the course.

I like to upload extra materials as a separate lecture, rather than as supplementary materials. These are easier for students to see when deciding whether or not to take your course.

Remember that the up load speed for your videos can be quite long if, like me, you have a relatively poor broadband connection. One tip is is to start up loading the videos as you complete them providing you can do this while continuing to work on the course. This upload process can become a real bottleneck.

Record Promo Video

Now you are nearly there. Time to record your Promotional Video which I believe should be very personal. If in any doubt, just go and watch some examples of other people’s Promo Videos. Follow the Udemy Course CheckList which makes it very clear what to include in your Promo Video.

Design course image

Finally you need to create a Course Image for your course. I admit I am not very good at this and Udemy are very helpful here and will create one for you if you ask. They actually go further and will change your image unilaterally if they do not like the one you have created. If they do, this my advice is go with the flow, they have a lot more experience on this topic than you do.

Udemy Course Checklist

It is important before you start to download the Udemy CourseChecklist and make sure you understand and follow its guidance. The Checklist can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1SbCv-uFZk6LiUh0D8tuwRmlK1Ybgnom0wXIPjvjuOdg

What Students are saying about this Course

This course has 17 5 Star Reviews, here is a short selection of comments from students who have already taken this course:

Eliminates the guesswork!

“Want to know that your course will be popular AND profitable? Grab this course now. John provides the actual data on current Udemy courses,analysis and strategies you need to deliberately and consistently create winning courses. My biggest takeaway was understanding which category was best for my course ( I would’ve gotten this wrong) and confirming that the price I chose would yield a good return. Don’t miss this high quality, robust knowledge course!”

Essential viewing for Udemy Instructors

“This course provides a valuable insight to help you plan and position your course. John looks at how competitive each category is and how to look at pricing strategy to get the best return on your course. I realised that I had put my course in the wrong category. Quick Start Website has been relocated to its rightful place :) Thanks John.”

An invaluable tool for hopeful or existing instructors

“This course and the accompanying datasets provide a wealth of useful information for Udemy instructors. I enjoyed the introduction to the Visokio Omniscope, which I had not encountered before. Highly recommended for those who are data-driven!”

Excellent course for current and wannabe online course instructors.

“Thank you John for a very well organised and well presented course. Not only is the main content invaluable, you get the added bonus of some instruction in how to use two great data analysis tools: Excel and Omniscope. I am sure I will be revisiting these lectures going forward as I create new courses. Thanks also for providing all the data !

If you have designed and published Udemy course/s or are now working toward that goal, this is a MUST VIEW course. I’m getting ready to build a course myself, and this gave me valuable insight into topics that I had not previously considered.

How many other courses in your area? What is the value of a course? Impact of price points?

Again, this is a MUST DO, top notch course.”

Teaching by example

“Not only does John provide tons of useful analysis, he’s teaching by example – clear and concise scripting, lots of legwork in gathering data, and clean screencasts.

Certainly got my frontal cortex warmed up, and changing the way I am thinking about my next course. Which is, I think, the idea.

Thank you, John for services to Udemy-kind!”

I hope you find this outline of the process I use to create my Courses.  If you do and would like to get more from my blog, why not sign up for my newsletter?
