Thanks, Jeff.  "Anna," is new software for doing the Explainer Video. I have used all types in my different classes from the writing pen on a whiteboard with the hand sliding text and pictures to the animated cartoons. I like trying different techniques.

I like the "Anna" video Ericka. Good job on putting that together. It brings a sense of creativity and professionalism to your course promo video. Keep up the good work.

Comment by Ericka Joseph on September 5, 2016 at 11:32am

Hi Everyone,

From the feedback I received, people said they liked "Anna." She is the latest animated way of doing an Explainer video. But, I made sales when I had my "Meet the Instructor" video. So, I decided to combined the two about 35 minutes ago. About five minutes ago, I made a sale. The sale was from someone on Udemy. It had nothing to do with my marketing efforts on YouTube, Facebook or Twitter or my small email list. Yeah!

Hi Everyone,

I need your vote. On my new Udemy class, I have three videos that “could” work as the promo video.

The class is “English Grammar Writing Crash Course In One Hour”

I have the current promo video up, but I have two others that are free previews.

Your Choices:

-Writing Demo

-Meet the Instructor

-Meet Anna

I am on the fence I need your help.

Hi Udemy, Instructors. Udemy has changed their price structure again. Now, we can go from $20 to $200. Are you going to adjust your prices?

Hey Gang, wanted to share a great blog Donna Reade did around setting price points that I think you will of interest. You can find her blog HERE.

@Scott - I think you responded to a question I asked about reviews on Udemy Studio. I did not know you were also a 48Days fan. Nice to meet you. Small world.

Thanks Scott, I see this is part of the new changes to Udemy's platform that took place in the beginning of the year. Good to know.

Comment by Scott Duffy on July 26, 2016 at 12:58pm

@Ericka - review swapping is actually not allowed on Udemy and they have automated systems to detect it.
