    Hello Blackhatters,

    I'm in need of some help/solid advice over here, I recently created an online video series on how to build websites and now I'm trying to figure out how to get sales. I've designed a WordPress site using LearnDash LMS, so my course is all setup and ready to roll. Everything is super legit. What sucks is a lost my job a couple weeks back so I virtually have no funds to move forward with so I figured I'd ask around here.

    I have about 23,000 emails that I've been trying to mail 300 at a time with no success. I've done research around the forums and have tried several things with no success.

    My attempts:
    MailChimp - Got several accounts banned
    Gmail Accs - Reported as Spam/or locked out of acc
    ClickBank - Don't have funds to fork over for the initial payment
    Udemy - Don't have a following to make sales (Have not attempted to sell on Udemy though)

    Now what?

    Also I thought I should mention I'm trying to charge $99 for this course, is that too much? The video section of my course is over 90 minutes long and I've also included several extra sections that include tips and tricks that I've learned over the years of building websites to save money and get free stuff. It also includes a StackFlow style support section where students can ask questions about the course for up to 6 months.

    This method is pretty sweet! Thanks for the share!

    I could maybe see about doing this down the road but like I mentioned I don't really have funds at the moment. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    From what you've wrote I couldn't understand did you publish your course on udemy? Ok whatever published or not, make a 100% free coupons and spread them to related forums/blogs/fb & linkedin groups/twitter as well. Gather as much students as you can.
    Communicate with them, if someone leave negative review contact him and try to solve the problem etc. I guess you know the drill in essence maintain the community.

    At one point you will stop the free coupons but you will have a few thousands students course with good reviews. Now when a regular guy take a look at your course it will looks very credible, in general you will wait for those guys to fall in your trap. Also you can add a front end product like some short completely free course, but make it good, stuff a lot of summarized info in it. In general give some value with it, be careful to not over promote you main course in your free one play this part gentle.

    The rest is to give this courses more exposure, keep pushing them on different channels on a daily basis. Pick the simplest and fastest methods and stick with them, like commenting on high traffic blogs/forums etc. Also you can write a few nice articles and try guest blogging, ofc in your bio mention that you are udemy "instructor" etc. you've seen how this crap is done I am sure about that. About these coupon sites you can check if they allow udemy stuff there. When you are reading something here about completely different method try to brake it through your prism with intention to fit this approach to your course promotion. You will find many good ways.

    I don't have experience with Udemy courses but I think this will work, at least you can pick a few ideas. Good luck bro.
