Educational resources are always important and there are many websites where you can learn almost about any profession and I have examined many of them , like edX , Khan academy , Alison , Coursera.
Today I want to add another Top resource center , called Udemy.It is a university , full of online classes.Most of the classes are premium and you have to pay but the prices are very affordable and there are free lessons as well , with less content but the quality is the same.
What to Expect from Udemy
The classes are divided into the main categories
- Development , business , IT & software
- Office productivity , personal development , design
- Marketing , lifestyle , photography
- Health & fitness , teacher training , music
- Academics , language
Furthermore there are sub categories for convenient navigation
Let’s take the Marketing category for example
- Digital marketing , SEO , social media
- Branding , Marketing fundamentals
- Analytics & automation , public relations
- Advertising , video & mobile marketing
- Content marketing , non digital marketing , growth hacking
- Affiliate marketing , product marketing
What is included in the Marketing section
There are both paid classes and free.Let’s examine the prices and content
Facebook mastery guide & FB ads – €20 – 70 lectures , 9.5 hours of video material with lifetime access , 30 day money back guarantee and certificate completion.
This course is huge and is created by Coursenvy online , an organisation with 40K+ students , specialised in Facebook and social media marketing and is an Amazon seller.
A very good deal for the money that costs.
SEO training by Moz – 5 lectures , 1 hour video with certificate completion.MOZ is a leading SEO website and that makes this course absolutely valuable and this is an indicator of the Top quality inside Udemy.
A company backed by industry leading data and the largest community of SEO’s on the planet.MOZ builds software to help marketers not only to see their data , but to get actionable insights to improve their visibility online.
I am a MOZ subscriber and I always enjoy the Whiteboard Friday , a video and text weekly data backed research topic.

I watched the first video in building a monthly SEO plan and it really focus on what matters the most.The course will help any marketer understand all the opportunities and what metrics to analyse in order to maximise the potential of marketing efforts.
Let’s move on to the Affiliate Marketing sub-category
Top paid courses – 1 example
Clickbank success – affiliate marketing without a website.Of course , even without a website , anyone can promote digital products from marketplaces like Clickbank and make some money on the go.But do not expect to make a fortune without a website.
The course costs €30 and the creator is named KC Tan.I do not know him but prior to the course there is a short video of the founder explaining what to expect.This adds to the credibility of Udemy as you have a chance to evaluate the creators before having to pay for anything.
Top Free courses – 1 example
Introduction to CPA marketing by John Shea.For those that are interested in making money through specialised offers and form submissions.
John Shea is an independent marketer and you probably have not heard about him before but I watched the first 5 lessons and I can assure of the quality of those videos.He has broken down all the necessary elements as concerns CPA marketing and overall is a course that I will complete during the weekend and you should check it out.
