Until the 1st of February, Udemy has a 90-91% discount on some online courses. It is the most popular place to purchase online courses, and they are usually high standard. What is more, you can check ratings and reviews to filter out the junk. Find the details below.
Udemy courses typically include articles, and readings, downloadable resources, hours of video lectures, and a certificate of completion. There are no deadlines set to begin or complete classes either, so you can go at your own pace. Once you finish, you will have lifetime access to the materials.
For example, you can enhance your Video Conferencing Zoom Skype WebEX Tech Presentation Skills, just click on the link.
Udemy also has over 650 free online classes, which are always free of charge.
If you are not sure if a course is right for you, you can start a free preview before committing. And if you buy it and are not satisfied, every course from Udemy can be refunded within 30 days of purchase.
You can gift courses just click “Gift this Course” on the course page. It makes a great add-on to a gift such as a photography course with a camera, or just to spark the interest of someone interested in a subject like coding or game development.
Udemy sales not only now, but in general, offer a discount on the total price. It is common to see a course offered at €130 full-price reduced to just €12. Regular students know that it is not worth buying a Udemy course at full price. Sooner or later, the course you want to enroll in will be on sale.
Here is a list of the promotions they ran throughout the year:
- January: New Years Promotions – sitewide discount on all courses
- January: End of month sale (now)
- February: Valentines sale
- March: Buy more, save more (discounts for buying more than one course)
- April: Own Your Education sale
- May: Mothers Day Sale
- August: Back to School Sale
- November: Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale
- December: Christmas season sales
For each of these promotions, you could pick up almost all the courses offered on Udemy for just €10 or €11.
This is the Udemy pricing model in a nutshell: Offer a wide range of online courses at low prices and have millions of students enroll vs. offering courses at higher prices and fewer students.
The year-round offer for new visitors to their site helps them achieve as many new students learning on their platform as possible, and then they keep track of them with regular promotions throughout the year to these existing customers to keep them coming back.
