"A Goldmine of Quality Information

"This course is a literal goldmine of information about how to be a better Udemy instructor by providing what the students want to learn and more importantly, how to make data-driven decisions. (as opposed to the emotional decisions that most of us tend to make) John covers so many areas - creating your course, analyzing your competition, etc. and includes deep dive looks at all sorts of things like number of reviews, number of students, pricing of your course. It's just amazing. When I enrolled in this course, I was looking for the exact answers that John gives, (I needed to "get my bearings" in this new business model called Udemy) and boy does he give great answers! (answers based on data, not emotion)

If you've ever wanted to get a more intense view of the Udemy "universe", along with precision hawk dives to the real meaty parts that instructors have questions about, this is the course to get." Dave E. Five Stars
