I've known Joe Parys for a while, so I was delighted when I learned he agreed to be a guest on my podcast.
Joe and I created two Udemy courses together and have been interacting with each other ever since. I've viewed him as a mentor on Udemy and I've asked him questions throughout my journey on that platform.
For anyone curious (and eager to get a big discount), these are the two courses we created together
Now I have him on my podcast to discuss how he made a six figure income on Udemy in 2016. While this alone is impressive, the cool part is how he achieved this goal.
On January 1, 2016, Joe declared his goal to make six figures selling his courses by the end of the year. Before that, he barely made $10,000 from his courses and had no idea how he would make six figures.
We talk about how he made his big transformation in this episode just in time for the excitement of a New Year. People set New Year's resolutions all of the time. Joe talks about how to accomplish them even if you don't know what you're doing quite yet.
But Joe has some other insights up his sleeve in this episode. We talk about some of the tactics he used to get more sales for his courses and expand his Udemy student base.
At the end of 2016, Joe was rapidly approaching 200,000 students throughout his courses. That's not bad for someone who only had 22,000 students just 366 days ago (2016 was a Leap Year. Remember that? I didn't).
