If I want to talk about my own experience of Udemy earning I am happy about it because I have not lost anything neither I spent anything on Hardware or Software and in one of my course Udemy listed me on top earners list. 

Over a last couple of months, I have not been able to consistently give time to this platform because of personal reasons for generating new courses so my earning are decreased but my old courses are really doing well. So I am confident that if I give consistent time and effort to this platform it will give you good passive income which you can dream off.

So here you go :

Tip 2 :  Make many short videos of max. 5-10 minutes in a section. And Keep length of the course also not too long like 20-30-40-50 hours. And also use mix of above type of content.

3. Polish and Publish your Course

Tip 3 : Send 1-2 short videos for testing of audio-video before making all videos of your course.

To make it more simple I have created Udemy Course Creation Checklist here.

So once you submit your course for review it will be evaluated by Udemy Team based on their Course Quality Checklist based on which they will give you feedback or suggestions. Till last year Udemy team used to take 2-3 days for reviewing your course, since covid-19 pandemic has started the volume of the courses are increased so it is taking 6-8 days for the review process of single course.
