A great video about Udacity was found for you. Watch this 100 seconds video below to understand what exactly Udacity is about
It is important to note that Udacity is a for-profit educational organization which originally focused on offering university-style courses. It now focuses more on vocational courses for professionals.
This sounds encouraging, as we are looking to see if this platform would be suitable to learn how to start a business online, and other related topics such as Online Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Affiliate Marketing, etc.
#2.1 Visit Udacity’s URL
It is simple to access Udacity’s home page. Just go to your web browser and type www.udacity.com, and you will land directly on Udacity’s home page.
Click to button below to be taken directly to this homepage, so you can take a look and see for yourself. You will be taught further down this blog on how to search related courses.
#2.2You will land on the following page. See screenshot below:
Next, we’ll go through the process of looking for relevant digital marketing courses on this platform. I can’t wait to check this out because getting the right platform for my online business endeavor is turning out be more challenging than I thought. It is really extremely difficult to find the ideal courses online.
K. Let’s get to work.
It was quite a relief, to find out that I didn’t have to sign in or create an account before searching for courses. No need creating an account when you might never get to use it. It’s the same principle that edX, Coursera, and Udemy apply. Thumps up on this.
Let’s get right into things. Check out the screenshots below to walk through the process of finding relevant online business courses with this platform.
#3.1 How To Find Online Business Courses: First search term-Affiliate Marketing
We will start off by displaying the search bar. To do so, you have to click on ”Catalog” as shown in the image below:
#3.2 Once you do that, the following page will appear:
We were not successful with our first search results. Perhaps we were being too specific. Let’s try something more generic and see what happens.
#3.3 Second Search Term: ”Marketing”:
Marketing is a generic term, meaning that if there were other topics related to marketing, these courses would have been displayed as well. Basically, that’s it for Udacity.
They have only 2 digital courses related to starting a business online. And the second one, ”App Marketing”, only relevant when you are interested in Apps development and marketing.
I did an additional search on the term-”digital”, and only the digital marketing course was displayed alongside, other App development courses.
Udacity seems to have more resources for technology and web development, than for Digital Marketing.
#3.4 Details Of The Available Digital Marketing Course
Udacity Digital Marketing course covers the following topics:
–> Marketing Fundamentals
–> Content Strategy
–> Social Media Marketing
–> Social Media and Advertising With Facebook Blueprint
–> Search Engine Optimization
–> Search Engine Marketing With Google Adwords
–> Display advertising

–> Measure And Optimize With Google Analytics
#3.5 Price-Related Details Of The Available Digital Marketing Course
Check out the table below:
|Ref.||Name Of Training|
|Name Of Training||Digital Marketing|
|Number Of Courses||9|
We will discuss more on this below.
Before these reasons are brought forth, it’s important to note here that Udacity’s training content for Digital Marketing is very elaborate and almost complete. They have touched pretty much, very important core topics in digital marketing, and I must admit that I’m really impressed.
However, having come across a lot of training courses on starting a business online, and being in a position to recommend a course to anyone wishing to start a business online, Udacity will not be included as one of my recommendations.
My reasoning is simple. I’d feel very guilty to recommend Udacity out of pity and make you pay for something for which deep inside, I know you would have found greater value elsewhere.
I will not recommend Udacity for the following reasons:
Experienced marketers could make use of these courses more judiciously.
But as a newbie online, I don’t recommend Udacity for starting your business online, because if you do, you will spend exceedingly for the same services, as compared to those that are offered by more specialized platforms that were designed to train only online entrepreneurs. $999 is the membership for 2.5 years on other specialized platforms offering both in-depth courses, as well as additional tools to help you set up your business website only within minutes.
