Ecommerce, Selling Online, Online Sales

As we all know from shopping on Amazon or eBay, doing something in the physical world versus the virtual world differs in many ways.  How do you shop on Amazon? Well, you’ve probably had a lot of practice shopping in the brick and mortar world.  So you use what you know from that experience and then adapt it to shopping in the virtual world.  Over time while shopping on Amazon, you try and learn new things – for instance, Amazon Prime or Subscribe and Save, and then tweak your shopping experience accordingly.

The Importance of Udemy Courses Reviews – a quick reminder

Udemy courses with more reviews rank higher in the Udemy search results and are more likely to be promoted by Udemy.  Reviews are what makes a Udemy course more believable especially for aspiring students that are still wary about Udemy. Udemy is becoming increasingly focused on reviews due to the sheer volume of courses and students on the platform.

Positive reviews will encourage students to enrol in the course while negative feedback will turn away many potential students.
