Hey guys, most of you love to make money using affiliate programs, and I love affiliate marketing too.
Affiliate programs are great, you don’t create content, you invest $0 in the actual product, you don’t have to ship products and you don’t have to worry about refunds. You just have to sell affiliate products and collect your commission.
Selling affiliate products is pretty easy if you are already into IM and selling digital affiliate products is even easier if you have some background in running Ads.
Today I’ll show you one of the best affiliate programs, and I will show you how to make money with it. I will try to explain it so everyone can understand it.
What is Udemy and How to Make Money?
I used tons of affiliate programs in the last few years and I successfully created few businesses using those affiliate programs.
A few months ago a friend of mine told me about the $2000 he made using Udemy, he told me how he used his “method” and I started working with Udemy right away, with my own twist of course.
The first month into this, I spent 20 hours working on this, and I made $300, they even sent me money at the end of the same month.
What is the Udemy Affiliate program?
Udemy is a website where people sell video/digital courses, you can basically find a million courses there, in multiple niches like language courses, programming courses, drawing, writing, swimming, sewing courses, you can find courses in over 40 different niches and you can use your affiliate link to sell these courses online.
Udemy courses are pretty affordable, and you can learn tons of stuff there, so most of them are priced at $20-$50, and Udemy sells 5000 courses every single day.
If you sell any of these courses using your affiliate link, you will get a 50% commission off your affiliate sale. So, if you sell 5 courses every day, with an average price of $40, you can easily make $100 every day, that’s $3000 per month.
Udemy affiliate program is great, they will accept you as their affiliate in few hours, you can click here and sign up for your account and start promoting their courses.
They will send you affiliate payment at the end of the month, on your Paypal account, it’s fast and easy.
You will get a 50% commission from your affiliate sales, and you can use their amazing promotion materials, banners, reviews, and texts.
How to Promote Udemy Courses
Udemy affiliate program is great and everything, but there is one more problem, how to sell Udemy courses? Well, you have to think, there are millions of courses on Udemy, these courses are high quality, long and valuable so people will buy them, you just have to find the right audience.
I sold more than 500 courses in the last 90 days, and I made some nice money from my affiliate sales, so I will invest more and more time and money in this method.
Sell Udemy courses to students
The best audience to target are students.
Billions of students are searching for educational courses online, every day, and you can easily sell them Udemy courses.
Students are looking for all types of courses, different niches, like architecture, language courses, medical courses, math, how to study, how to learn fast courses…
Advertise courses on Social networks and Search engines
Social networks will be your advertising heaven, you can target any group of people you want, you can target age, sex, education, city… so you can sell basically any course you promote if you can target the right audience.
Social advertising is cheap, you can get more than 10,000 impressions on Facebook and Instagram for less than $20 and you can make $100 from this $20 ad investment if you are smart enough.
For example, you want to sell some architecture courses, go to Udemy, find architecture courses, go to Facebook, create a new Ad where you target Facebook pages like Arch students, some Arch colleges, Architecture companies, and some Architecture magazines.
Udemy is amazing, you can sell tons of courses every day, people are buying courses like crazy and if you work hard and smart you can easily make $100+ per day from Udemy.

Great post. I don’t know until now use my gives 50% affiliate commission on their courses. Thank you so much for the post adrian.

Do not use it directly in FB post
Bok Adriane,sve pohvale na blogu,zanima me vezano za ovu metudu za fb ads korisis pay per impression ili pay per click metodu i kada stavljas link stavljas neku svoju domenu koja se onda automatski preusmjerava na udemy stranicu?
Stavljam svoju domenu koja se preusmjeri na UDEMY, koristim PAY PER CLICK.
Hey, Adrian – do I need a Facebook business page in order to create Facebook ads for Udemy? I have a facebook page but not a business page yet.
You can create ads with your personal profile too
Thanks for your post but it may be incorrect on the information that is after I applied to udemy affiliate I saw the commission rate is 40% not 50%.
Commission model can range from 30-60%.
What happens if we get rejected because we didn’t provide website info.? Could you tell us how to avoid that.?
Just give them some random site info
HI adrean , tnx for this tutorial
if i want to promot a course , i dont know how can i find it , do i have to
search manualy every page in linkshare , because when i type the name of the course i can’t find it bcz of zome error
You can just find course, and create affiliate link with it.
Hey adrian i like your blog it’s one of the best I’ve seen in my opinion. This udemy method is really cool but i wanna know what could we do to avoid being rejected and must i have a page with a lot of content to be accepted. Please help me out. And also does $5 guarantee at least 1 sale as ROI in invested Facebook ads?
You should get 1 sale on 10k impressions
Hi Adrian! Great article! I’d like to work with udemy affiliate so I’ve opened a blog where I share daily deals from Udemy like free coupons and discounts.. also I use a facebook page.. do you think this is good for starting?
What about facebook Ads or Google Adwords?
Can I promote affiliate links in FB ads (cloacked like with bit.ly) or do I need a domain redirect? Thanks a lot man 🙂
You will need domain redirect for cloaked links.
You can use Facebook ads, but I don’t use Adwords + cloaked links.
Thanks for this awesome method. Do i get commissions if a person goes through my affiliate link to udemy site but buys different course not the one i was promoting?(i mean like amazon affiliate program).
Yes you do.
I have issues with TaxForm i am from Croatia and i have no idea what to do there…
I thought you don’t need a website, yet they ask for website info (business model, visitors, page view and all), am I missing anything?
You can promote them without website too.
How? What about the website info they’re asking for?
Skip that part or add some random website
What should I put in those fields about website info?
How to promote them without website? Could you expound a bit please!
Thanks a lot man!
Just skip the website field
Nice method but this time you give less details than usual :))
It’s a simple method, I gave you Udemy blog link so they explained it better on their site.
Have you had success with this method?
Will fb ban u if u just promote the shortened link of the aff link?
Thx for another great post/method.
When using FB ads do you use your aff link or do you first link to a landing page?
Have a great day!
I just use cloaked link, I redirect some random domain to my affiliate link.
If you get a viral facebook ad campaign with a Udemy course, can you expect daily commissions ?
Of course, if you can get even 2-3 sales per day that’s 40-60$.
