I posted my new course photo here and got this. The one place I don't spam is G+... and they give no idea what I did or how I can talk to them about fixing it.

Udemy Learn Fest

Start Date: 5/15/2017 12:00AM PST

End Date: 5/26/2017 6:00AM PST

Discount: All users will see $10

Look for a crazy ten days. Udemy puts on these promos and then does a good job of driving traffic.

This is an affiliate coupon that affiliates will be pushing.

Starting next week: Udemy's 12 day $10 Sale period. Just a friendly reminder. Sales seem to be continuing their strong trend of the past two months. I think they are getting some steam in the olde locomotive... Udemy is also putting out massive Affiliate incentives, so it is a good idea to run your promos before the sale if for no other reason than it minimizes the Affiliate 'theft' that can occur.

Update on Sales. Udemy is looking for a huge month. I think one reason is they expect a summer slowdown. We will see.

All month is $15 sales with two $10 sales.

"We will start off strong on Monday, May 1st, celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week! This will be a great time to promote education so we encourage you to take advantage of this natural sales pitch in your promotions. Then, on May 15th, we will continue with Udemy Learn Fest a 12 day $10 promotion. On site, we will have branded messaging and a sweepstakes encouraging for higher conversion rates. For this sale, we will provide you with custom banners that include branded messaging and design for a better, more seamless user experience.

"We will also be hosting another Udemy Affiliate competition

"We will end the month with our first segmented $10 deal in Argentina and Mexico in honor of Hot Sale (a Black Friday-type event in the region).

"Please note, only users in Argentina and Mexico will see $10 so make sure you specify that to your users. If you do not have an audience in this region, we encourage you to promote the $15 deal instead.

+Mark Timberlake, I was going to ask this in a PM, then thought the community would benefit from your expertise, not just me.

I want to get a microphone for my DSLR Olympus camera for recording video outside. I believe it is a dynamic mic. I want it to basically cut out all surrounding noise. I would prefer a mic that I could mount on my camera and is small for travel, but a lapel clip would be fine.

An alternative is a mic that attaches to my Zoom H4n and I can sync up the audio with the video. I have looked and I have to say, it is all very confusing. Thanks!

PS Open to everyone else's opinions as well.

Udemy will be segmenting specials based more and more on the user. Here is Scott's take on it. Less sitewide $10 sales for EVERYONE. They will be more and more for the new visitors. Remember the first time you saw a $10 sale as a customer?

Then they will be offering $15 to veteran buyers instead of $10.

They are paying attention to when countries outside the US are active and targeting those times (see last sale locations).

Eventually this could get us to individual sales based on buying habits. THere are people who buy full price or half price. but they get all the $10 pricing too. What happens if Udemy shows them 60% off instead of 90% off?

Regardless, May is shaping up to be a hot month. I will be in Macedonia, Bulgaria and Poland. This is in southern Turkey
