Email Marketing for Online Course Creators

If you’ve listened to any podcast, taken a course, or read any blog about building an online business, you probably know by now that having an email list of your own is important. Some would say that is the most important thing to focus on when you start a website. As you poke around my site, you’ll notice how I try to get people onto my own list. This is something I’ve been doing for a while now, and have seen my list grow past 5,000 subscribers.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
