http://robcubbon.com/freecourses – how to make passive income selling video courses online.
I'm getting a lot of emails from people who are quite daunted — they want to sell ebooks and video courses online. They want to make passive income. And they are asking me how to do it.
Do they go for Udemy? Do they sell on their own site? Do they go for Amazon?
I do have information on my site about how to do this and a free course, if you are interested. http://robcubbon.com/freepassive
But to answer the question what do I do first. Do I do Udemy first? Or do I do Amazon first? Or do I build my site first?
The answer is that you have to do everything but don’t do it all at once.
So, for example, I sold my video courses on Udemy first. Udemy makes it really easy for you. And setting up a membership site to sell video courses is something that I found very tricky to do.
eBook publishing is a little bit easier on both sides. Selling a PDF on your own site is pretty easy to set up. Publishing on Kindle that are technical difficulties but you can surmount them pretty easily.
And, I wouldn’t say which one you should do first. It will be up to you what you feel comfortable with.
Now, can you publish everywhere? Well, yes you can.Udemy doesn’t insist on any exclusivity. Some online learning platforms do but most of them don’t and Udemy is the biggest.
With Amazon, they don’t insist on exclusivity. But there is one important point here. If you want to enroll with KDP Select and Amazon makes it very attractive for you to do so, they give you marketing tools such as free giveaways and countdown deals etcetera. If you want to enroll on KDP Select then the ebook has to be exclusive to Amazon. So, if you want to sell that ebook on your site you need to rewrite it and give it a new title.
Other than that, you can publish everywhere. You can publish free on your own site, free on Udemy, free on Amazon with KDP Select. And you can get a huge audience that way. You can also of course publish premium courses on Udemy, premium courses on your site and sell ebooks on Amazon on other ebook selling sites as well as your own.
So the answer is you can do everything.
But do one thing at a time!
And take action! Do something today — write that ebook, create that video course, set it up on a platform or start selling on your own site.
And don’t forget free content wins every time – when you collect email addresses.
