I am not a big fan of social media.  But, I do like to use Instagram for research.   Since Instagram knows what I am interested in (scary, I know) it sends me suggestions.

One of my interests is generating extra income online.

Instagram is always suggesting I check out some guru’s page.

Whenever I do, the guru tries to sell me some $997 course on how to earn money online.

But, here’s the thing (the tip):

You can learn most of what they are teaching for free right over on Udemy.com.

There are lots of free classes on Udemy.com.

For example, here are a bunch of free classes on drop-shipping and Amazon FBA:  https://www.udemy.com/courses/search/?price=price-free&q=amazon+fba&sort=relevance&src=sac

To find free classes in the field you are interested in simply go to Udemy.com and plug the subject you are interested in into the search bar.

When the results pop up, drop down and look for “Price” on the left-hand side.  Click it.  You will get two options.  Paid and Free.  Click Free, and just like that, you will have access to free courses!

When I did this for Amazon FBA, I found 36 free courses!

Of course, you often get what you pay for.  That’s true.  The $997 course may actually be worth the money.

If you aren’t quite ready to commit to paying for a course, you could test your commitment by first going through some free courses.

Perhaps you could even earn enough using the free courses to later purchase the paid courses.
