Starts out with some pretty solid information, however good portions of this are already out of date. With no response from the creator I dont think we can expect any updates.

Mina23 February 2019

Learnt reality more than old-film school how to survive in film industry if you are a individual filmmaker! Thanks

Husni30 December 2018

I love this course, explained well but then I saw the only problem which is I didn't see any recent income update.

I spend a lot of time viewing instructional videos on many subjects and find this to be one of the top videos that I have viewed. The instructors were very professional, responsive and easy to follow. All of my questions were answered about Amazon Video Direct service! Just celebrated my 80-year-old birthday and still thinking about my future and following my dreams. You are never too old to learn!

Creating videos for youtube and now amazon is new to me. I've never been paid for any of my content because I never qualified under the Youtube "rules". Now it appears Youtube has changed them again and it looks like beginners like me will never qualify. So I noticed Phil offering this class and I signed up to learn more about Amazon Direct. I still feel like I am at a technological disadvantage because my skills are not at a professional level. I've taken many of Phil's classes and continue to apply the knowledge gained in real time. I guess practice makes perfect. In this class I would have liked to see other examples of video content that amazon is looking for. However, Phil and Dave do walk you through many of the screens (Amazon) step by step which is very helpful. I liked their format and how they organized the material. Its fast paced and to the point. But understand that there is an assumption in the beginning that students know how to create, edit and post a video on Youtube. Which in my case is fine. However, I'm still a bit confused about how to proceed. Is this the best platform for beginner video creators who are looking for a little additional revenue stream? Youtube offers any type of video - I get the impression from this class Amazon wants only professional produced material (i.e. documentary, How To (i.e. food-network, HGTV quality), short film). Which once again leaves me out until I can fine tune my skills to a professional level. I wished they had addressed this a little more in their class.

Very good overview of AVD, with lots of relevant detail. Amazon seem to be more upfront about payments than YouTube. Very encouraging for potential videographers to make some money, which Phil goes into detail about. Although you would need many (short) videos to make anything significant, but, that can come with time.

Very interesting and insightful course! Cant wait to start publishing. One thing I really wanted to see was a more in depth explanation on how to link your amazon store with physical products to your videos. Thank you for the great content!

Amanda14 October 2017

Fantastic course. Great audio and video content - professionally produced for maximum impact & learning. Insights I can immediately use in my work. Would definitely purchase other courses in future.

Louise21 September 2017

I enjoyed this course because it provided the important basics for publishing video on Amazon. It makes sense to put videos on Amazon so that people can learn about my courses on Udemy. I still needed to do a bit of work and figure a few things out once I joined but your course gave me the foundation pieces. Thanks guys!

Oliver12 September 2017

Solid actionable information, no fluff or filler, delivered at a great pace! I will be using the information from this course to distribute my courses on Amazon Video Direct. Thanks!

Lane29 April 2017

The course had a lot of valuable information, and walks you through the entire process of getting your videos on Amazon Video Direct. I took a bunch of notes, and so it takes the guesswork out of publishing my first titles.

Peter5 January 2017

It's a very good content. Started with all the benefits on , then transition to step by step instruction. I like it and will definitely recommend.
