Default We didn't want the personal involvement.

Well, the products behind the fee will now be sold at full value, about 345.00 total for what the beta guys got for 97. The basic course sells for 197, so we're going to do it the way which doesn't require our time and support.

It wasn't the information, it was our time and guidance and from what we learned in beta was simple...we don't want to do that anymore.

I hate WSO products. Any product Dien accepts will have to pass his very stringent sniff tests, no WSO BS type stuff, but certainly self improvement would be a welcome category.

My research shows only a handful of udemy instructors make the "big" money udemy touts, most buys are done during ten dollar and such specials. But you are right, it is a good idea.

If I were to do a similar private membership forum with as much content as the beta guys got, I'd charge at least 995.00 and even then limit the number of members.

We felt there are too many writers who just need a place and a promotion to sell what they write, product creation isn't that big of a problem, so if product hosting and promotion is what is needed, that seems to be a good direction to go as long as we keep it from being the sewer that WSO has become.


PS. TODAY, got a coupon promo from Udemy, only 10 bux, they do this several times a year. See attachment.

Weird how our minds work!

Udemy is one of those "I wish I'd thought of that" concepts (lots of those!) and although it isn't alone in the market it seems to be the leader at the moment.

That said, there's almost certainly scope for others and that could include your info campus.

The WSO market has dropped but JVZoo and Warrior Plus still get launches, mostly not with the $20 "tax" to be in the Warrior Forum itself.

I've not found a similar market outside internet marketing but think there would be scope for one covering self help/personal development. The buyers in that market are at least as hungry as IM buyers but haven't got anywhere near enough decent cheaper-end products ($5, $10, $20 range) in my view.

Just a thought
