Udemy 6 Figure Fast Trackby by Scott Britton
What would you do if you didn’t need a full time paycheck?
Travel? Experiment with new business ideas? Learn new skills?
I think what everyone really wants is the ability to live life on their terms.
There’s a lot of programs on the internet that teach you how to achieve this, but they rarely work for most people because to actually get results they require:
– Technical skills
-A massive pre-established audience or platform
– You to be a sophisticated online marketer
– Spending money on online advertising
Of all the lifestyle business opportunities on the internet, Udemy is the most straightforward way to make meaningful, consistent passive income online without needing any of these things which is why I created this course.
I’ve made over 6 figures on the platform and in this course teach you how to do the exact same thing guiding you through ever single step of the process.
Here is my income from just Udemy from the last 6 Months of last year: $55,650
This is just from the Udemy platform and does not include other channels where I sell the same exact content like webinars, my personal platform, Clickbank and other 3rd party marketplaces.
My results are not typical.
I get an edge by using strategies that less than 1% of people teaching on Udemy know about. This is exactly what I will share with you in this course.
The average instructor only makes $7,000…and my hope is that as a member of this course and community you will do far better than average.
Whether your goal is to use this opportunity to make passive income, grow your brand, or build a platform off the back of Udemy, I want to take the thinking out of creating highly successful Udemy course by sharing with you exactly what works for every step of the process so you don’t get taken off course by any roadblocks or frustrations.
