Hey folks.....we are all in sales right? our job is to sell what we got vs relying on a program or service that promises to do it all for us or make it easier. I sell a class for $699.00 per person, the class is for real estate Virtual Wholesaling. I make the videos on my own, I upload them to Youtube and make them all private. I then give people, access to them once they register. I cap my monthly course at 25 people per month to create a sense of urgency. When I sell out for a month, it creates $17k worth of income. The only money I lose is Paypal fee's, and that's it! I've been doing this for years because I know I can sell my content and I stand by it. I made private Youtube videos and only gave access to people who paid for the course.....that's it! that is all I did! If you lack sales, you lack leads and exposure! Grow your social circle and following, work like crazy to get new attention daily on your content. Don't rely on some company to promise you a bunch of customers, go get them on your own, build your own emails lists, do proper follow up and you won't need any of these platforms that promise great results. Keep more of your money and be a savvy marketer and sales person. You can create your own setup and keep more of your money, you just have to market and find people who need what it is that you are selling vs being spammy and desperate. I use Xsplit broadcaster to record my videos, its $19.99 for 3 months of use, its $199.00 for a lifetime use of their software and I like it. I stream video games on it so it has more than one use for me but that is what I use to record courses. You could literally make a cheap website that keeps all your videos on file and you can sell your courses on that website as a membership type thing without paying any fee's like you would on Udemy. Just make sure your website is decent quality and you paid for a good enough package to get enough videos up on your site (A free website won't allow that). but in the end, you control the content, and you keep way more of your money. I would recommend this route to anyone looking to make a living from home selling courses. You don't need people to sell things for you if you are a sales person, only fake sales people jump on programs like Udemy because they can't sell enough on their own so they rely on someone else and then they bitch when things go wrong!.....don't be that person. Be great at sales, get attention for your work and go make money! I am dropping my Virtual Real Estate course from $699.00 to $299.00 in 2018 to test and see how it does at that price point. I have a lot of detail in that course and its great for brand new real estate people as well. Do yourself a favor, stop watching other people do well and try to gain motivation from seeing someone else's results. Go carve your own path, get recognized for your work, create a following, do whatever it takes to make a name for yourself so you can make a living doing what you love to do. No one said it was easy! ....its not! you need to be savvy and you need to get attention for your work! Its a tough climb, most give up too fast vs chasing after their goals long term.
Hey Jerry, I love your courses. I just don't understand Udemy's position. You explained very eloquently here why you partnered and your intent was to share skills/knowledge with a partner instructor to collaborate on courses. I don't understand why Udemy can claim you were violating the rules. Apparently, they don't need anything in the way of evidence, just an accusation.
Sorry about my english but I took various of your courses and were excellent. If i talked english better i would also share some of my knowledge with the world. I am sorry to hear how stupid Udemy business model is.
Anytime you use someone else platform/website to make money you are at risk no matter how successful you are. Having your own site is harder in the beginning but safer in the long-run. Wish you the best and thank you for teaching me so much.
Thank you very much for your comment, but I didn't game the system. Many instructors have co-instructors like I had and don't feel I did wrong because I was very careful to be within the rules. Anyways, that is past and now you can check all my courses on Skillshare at http://jerry.tips/skillsha
To be honest, you made courses 80% of the time for profit and 20% of the time for the learning experience. If you got banned in almost half of the websites you were teaching on, maybe the problem is you. Learn to be discrete and don't throw all your secrets in the open. Hope you have a fulfilling career wherever you are now.
I appreciate your comment and I have changed my business model now to be more 80% for the learning experience and 20% for profit. You can find my courses on my website now here: https://jerrybanfield.com/shop/ or on SkillShare here: https://www.skillshare.com/r/jerrybanfield
Lynn, the courses are still available for people who bought the course, but I can't reply to answer. You can find my courses on my website now here: https://jerrybanfield.com/shop/ or on SkillShare here: https://www.skillshare.com/r/jerrybanfield
I'm a student of your Udemy "The Complete Facebook Ads and Facebook Marketing" course and was wondering how is the best way to reach you if I have any questions. Unfortunately the Q&A section won't work because of the circumstances. Thank you Jerry.
sorry to know that happened with you and wish u the best in your new plans.
Actually, I took your Facebook ads. course on udemy, but unfortunately I found it not helpful to me and I stopped not completing more than 15% of that course.
I once posted a comment in the course Q&A seeking a refund of the money I paid but you didn't reply to me.
so, I'm writing it here hopefully you will respond. I can provide you all evidences of not-completing more than 15% once you request.
I hope to hear from you shortly. Thank you
You did nothing wrong but smart business. They lost an excellent instructor and quality courses. If anything, I feel bad for this company. They have way too many rules and restrictions. I got so sick of them I switched to Zenler. I know others that have switched to other great alternative platforms too that blow them away!

Why did Udemy hire a bunch off laid off FB compliance team people that were just a bunch of thought police zealots? It doesn't make sense if your objective is the make money and people with this mentality if they don't like you or disagree with your believes they terminate your account. Sorry for this loss. It is ridiculous why companies will hire a bunch of leftists and feminazis and think that is good for their online Comunidad.
You are too greedy. They should have banned you earlier. For you it was just a money making machine. If every instructor had thousands of video courses how could anybody even find the right course. You will never be as rich as Bill Gates. Please go away. You should be a millionaire by now.
Well then since Udemy takes its business seriously and they want to be profitable it makes sense they ban anybody who doesn't keep the high quality delivery standards and excellent post delivery customer services. Any one who profits out of reputation provided by good work of Udemy educators who are giving their best to provide real value to their students is working against Udemy in their opinion and since its their company, eh, you know.
@k odu, Hmm, too greedy. What a stupid thing to say. He provided value. No one held a gun to anyone's head to buy and there was a refund policy in effect. So what kind of idiotic loser statement is it to claim another man's success is the result of being too greedy.
All business is conducted for the sole purpose of profit. If you are so stupid that you think profit is evil then next time you go to work (if you even have a job) just tell your boss you will work for no pay. Idiot.
Thank you very much for sharing your experience! In know Udemy since 2 years. Instead of publishing there I started to self host, but allways with the question in my head, if I should not publish on Udemy as well. Hearing your story gives me a clear answer! Thanks a lot!!! :-)
I lost trust in Udemy some time ago. As has happened before, in a variety of matters, I can unconsciously sense something amiss, and I avoid it without really knowing why. Unless I focus on deciphering my feeling(s) and framing them in precise words.
I have a lot that I can teach, but the main reason why any motivation to teach on Udemy is blunted by the lack of a contract, with a condition that prevents Udemy from changing my work conditions arbitrarily, for example, lessening the fraction of the revenue from a course that I'm to receive. I've read reports that Udemy has done exactly this.
Even with a contract, what redress would I have as a resident of Australia, and the party I need to take civil action against being domiciled in another country?
To earn my penny
I shall look elsewhere
Because I've found you quite unfair.
Jerry I want to start creating on line courses in spanish and I need to decide between udemy and teachable because since in spanish the audience is smaller than in english I need to invest money on ads and content marketing to bring students to my courses, please tell me if you would advise me to host my own courses at teacheble or go for the udemy path regarding all this terms and conditions that udemy has. Actually they have rejected my first course and I need to do a lot of work in order to get it published!
Thanks for your feedback
In my opinion you should start again on Udemy again, I know it will take time to get your worth back but Your courses were amazing and you were teaching very good so for the sake of Students you should try coming back on udemy.
Just halfway watching this video and I am feeling really sad for such a kind and giving instructor. Thank you Jerry for your work.
I don't understand why Udemy doesn't give instructors second chance or the opportunity to defend their cases.
Sorry Jerry. I have really gained a lot from your courses. In fact, I had just become a Patron of yours in Patreon which is how I saw your video about being banned from Udemy. I have faith that you'll succeed by hosting on your own platform.
Udemy seems to shoot itself in the foot every month now. The big change in April has caused so much damage to Udemy. You are not missing much in the Facebook group. Everyone is complaining about making less money since the big change in April. As you said in the video there are loads of other video hosting companies. YouTube, Twitch and Amazon Video Direct. I wish you and the family, the very best Jerry.
I have developed a couple of video content management platforms geared towards course management/hosting for a couple of clients in the past, so I know for a fact it is possible to create / manage your own courses platform.
I am so sorry that you are going through this Mr. Jerry, I am an author and was developing content to start a course on udemy BUT I am and will consider taking my business elsewhere.
My Prayers are and will be with you and your family. Please remember that the Enemy is always trying to take our Blessings and if we lose FAITH and TRUST in GOD, he already won. So, DO NOT give up on GOD he has ALL CONTROL give GOD all the GLORY through your storms, He will take care of the rest.
No, I think it was for selling $9 coupons on his own site and then issuing free coupons to those users. So udemy got nothing, but he was collecting money. He mentions it on his other videos that is how he was still offering courses for $9 when they were priced at $50. If you take money and then use Udemy platform bandwidth and platform you are flat out abusing the system.
Jerry I am going to be honest, I have been commenting on other videos while playing this so I can't remember what happened before 15 minutes but I think that you should continue with your classes and attempt to turn it into your own, not a business but in some sort of process in which you receive income. I mean a business if you wish but I feel like that comes with a lot of complications. You're doing well as you are calm and completely picked out all of the specifics in the topic and the situation.
