Become a successful Udemy instructor:
When it comes to online teaching, you can either choose a free platform like Udemy or Skillshare or prefer a paid platform like Ruzuku, Podia or Teachable. The good thing with the free platforms is the fact that you don't have to pay anything to publish your course. So you can only focus on creating the contents and finding the potential students.
Even though both Udemy and Skillshare have a lot of online learners, you should not start creating your online course without understanding how those platforms work. Udemy explained
There are several mistakes you should avoid making in order to earn money as an online teacher:
1- Choosing the wrong topic
From pastry techniques to fitness lessons, every single thing is teachable and there are probably several students willing to pay for that. But even though Udemy has over 9 million learners, you won't earn a dime if you choose the wrong topic.
But what's a wrong topic ?
Apart from the topics that promote violence or discrimination, a wrong topic is a topic chosen by too many instructors. If 2000 instructors have a course on cooking spaghettis, you won't earn anything if you choose the same topic.
However, the wrong topic can also be a topic that nobody has chosen. Generally, if a topic has not been explored by other instructors it's probably because nobody wants to buy it.
With that being said, either you choose a topic that was over explorated or a brand-new topic, you should teach something that passionates you. Find help
Share your passion with students from all over the world. And get paid for that.
If a topic makes you feel uncomfortable, it is a wrong topic. If you're not comfortable while speaking Russian, you can't teach the Russian language, students won't purchase your course. Teach something you're comfortable with.
2- Trying to beat a best-selling course
Best-selling courses remain best-sellers for a long time. Not because they are perfect but because they intimidate learners with their popularity and good reviews. So trying to beat a best-selling course can be very tiring and completely useless.
Learn how to turn the success of a best-selling course at your advantage by choosing a subcategory that is not explored.
3- Spending too much money for your course
Even though many online teaching platforms will promise you diamonds, that doesn't mean you will get those diamonds quickly. And in some cases, you won't find any diamond at all. Most successful instructors earn money throughout the years and that's what we call passive income. Yes, you can earn money with your online course but that won't make you become rich. At least, not at the beginning.
So spending all your savings for your course would be a big mistake. No need to look like a celebrity to be impressive. Many students appreciate natural and simple manners. Moreover, nobody knows how much money you will earn with your course and when that will happen. That's why I strongly encourage you to create and promote your course with a ZERO DOLLAR BUDGET. Learn how to create & promote compelling Udemy courses with a zero dollar budget.
4- Giving too many free coupons
Giving too many free coupons is one of the fastest ways to kill your reputation. Nope, students won't be grateful because they enrolled with a free coupon. Most of them will give you 1 or 2 star reviews and many of them are course collectors who were given a free visa to take your contents and sell them on other websites without your authorization.

I had the opportunity to work with Faradjine on an extensive and complex AECOM project. Faradjine is a very skilled person to handle the logistics of complex engineering projects in natural disaster recovery as it was after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and then Hurricane Matthew. Thanks to Faradjine, all the AECOM staff assigned in Haiti were always successful in all coordination with the United States embassy in Haiti and in all scheduled activities. Faradjine is a great human resource in public and administrative relations.
Your future business partner
Passion is woven into my DNA. First of all, I'm Christian at 100% (so please don't ask me to sell indecent pictures 😂😂), I'm vegetarian 🥦 at 80% (because I still eat meat occasionally 🍔😊). I'm a non-coffee drinker ☕ but I appreciate other drinks 🍸🍹. (So please feel free to invite me to talk about your project). I'm very generous but I'm also honest (so sometimes I'm not nice at all because I have to tell the truth). I'm left handed. I've learned to play guitar 🎸 and violin 🎻 but that's not something I do nowadays. I've also studied drama art but I'm not currently a performer. I dance very well 💃💃💃, try to sing well but at least I'm a good songwriter and music composer. I'm a foreign language lover, a gastronomy amateur 🌮🌯, I particularly like pastry techniques 🍨🍧. What else? I'm waiting for your next order 🏷️💴 💶: spend first, think later💰💷 💳. Thanks a million.
