In this economic climate many businesses are going bust…
…but with everyone’s mobility reduced, the video courses are absolutely exploding.
Personally, I was quite surprised when a small chess course I created for fun and published on Udemy, called "Learn to Play Chess: from a Novice to a Fierce Competitor", started getting traction all of a sudden. As of today, over 2,000 students and rising, and with absolutely no promotion whatsoever…
…then I realized, it’s not just me, other people’s courses are flying too.
Here’s something worth looking into: even if you’ve never created a video course before, a new cloud-based piece of software called CourseReel, which is beeing released TODAY, makes it super easy.
Is it worthwhile getting into the video course industry or not?
Here are some facts:
- The e-learning / video course market is on track to reach $325 million by 2025.
- Apart from getting paid for your courses, you also get lots of traffic when you place your creations on:
- Udemy (industry leader)
- Grinfer (new fast-growing platform)
- My friend Alun Hill (who created the advanced course for TV Boss while it was still my product) made $950,000 on Udemy with his creations.
- Bestselling topics:
- Personal improvement
- The key purpose of new video-maker CourseReel is creating video courses.
How does it work?
In a nutshell, you pick a topic and record your voice talking about it, as if you were with a friend. When you upload the audio the software converts it into text, which is then split into individual scenes. The software then finds and applies images and video clips, and adds styling, before rendering your video.
What I love about CourseReel is that it speeds up your video-creation process tremendously, while taking the complexity out of it.
