Hey what's up! It's almost black friday, and a lot of great courses are on Udemy sale for only $10 starting today. But here's a bit of a secret, Udemy raises their price by $1 every other day from now until Black Friday so it's actually the cheapest today and will only go up as we get closer to Thanksgiving and Black Friday. You can see all of Udemy's Black Friday deals here, or keep reading to see which ones I personally use and recomend! This post was originally written last year, but I've updated it for 2016 as the deals are back again!
As some of you know, I'm a huge fan of reading books and devouring courses and have personally learned 1000x more from doing so than I did at 4 years of college. To me, buying a $17.99 book can teach me just as much if not more than paying $4,000 in tuition, and taking a $2,000 course has made me more money than my $40,000 degree ever did. Here are the courses that I personally use and recommend as well as a list of interesting ones that I'd love to take.
Here are courses that I've personally taken or are made and I can 100% recommend:
(For owners of DSL cameras or want to just be better at framing, lighting, etc)
I've been asking on facebook and in comments which courses everyone has been signing up for and someone mentioned they bought Gary Vaynerchuk's course on Personal Branding. Guess what? I signed up and are going through it right now as I type, so far best $10 I've spent in a while! Definitely recommended. Big thanks to reader Logan Hess for recommending it to me.
Why I promote Udemy:
As ya'll know I'm both an affiliate for Udemy and also a teacher on there, as well as a student. To be honest, most courses on Udemy aren't as in depth as full price courses off of the platform and instructors on there won't have the time or energy to go deep into personally helping you in the forums or through email as they would through their own course, but if you want a great overview of whatever subject you're interested in Udemy is a great place.
As an Earnest Affiliate I will always promise to only recommend products and services that I either personally use myself, or know are valuable and this is what I've tried to do with this email, even though it's clearly still selling something.
The reason why it's such a win/win for both you my reasons and myself is I'm able to use my personal experience to recommend only the courses that I genuinely believe in which saves you both time and money especially since I'm able to tell you about the Black Friday sale wayyy before you would have heard about it on your own. Here's the Black Friday Udemy Coupon valid for all courses! Thank you all for continuing to support, and in return I will do the same.
Any product or service I recommend on this blog I personally use and would recommend to both friends and family. All links are affiliate links so please use them in the resources page or anywhere on the blog if you want to give me credit for referring you.
