I’ve published a ton over the years. I want to talk to you about a time when panic set in.
Naively, I thought I had what it took to teach others how to put on webinars.
So, I wrote a book about it. If you’re reading this, there’s a 5% chance that you read that book hehe.
To my surprise, the product actually got awesome reviews.
I Remember The Black Hats And Pirates Stole My Content…
I remember how stressed out I was that black hats and pirates were stealing my content.
Some lady on a black hat site said “He could have done much better with the copy!”.
Panic set in.
These egregious hackers were stealing my content!
Worse yet… They were making fun of my shoddy copywriting skills!
I immediately DELETED all of my content. I was so pissed that others were stealing my content for free.
The Point Is… Publishing Content Is Stressful.
It seems like you have to be an expert at everything.
Website design. Typography. WordPress. HTML. CSS. Copywriting. ON TOP OF your ability to create content in the first place.
In addition, you literally put your heart and soul on the line, and hit “submit”, often times only to have critics rip you to pieces.
So, the last thing you should have to worry about, is the tech side of things.
That’s Why I Love Publishing On Udemy…
The best thing about publishing on Udemy, is that it’s so damn easy.
You don’t have to be good at design.
You don’t have to be a tech nerd.
You don’t have to be good at typography.
And you sure as hell don’t have to write any long form sales letters.
The ONLY thing you have to do, is create the content.
Udemy.com even markets your courses for you, so it’s one of the best ways to sell your content passively.
How To Publish Your First Course On Udemy.com
The best advice I can give you, is to have the courage to put yourself out there.
There’s a good chance people won’t enroll in your courses.
But, with luck, people will flock like geese.
I can tell you this – if you never publish, you’ll never enroll a single student. Period.
Talk later, and always believe in yourself.
Screw the critics.
