How I succesfully earned money in college by sellings notes Edit article

I am a senior at a big state school taking five courses, doing an internship, prospecting for my future job and trying to maintain a suitable social life. Being financially stable while attending college can be a challenge for many students, especially those paying for their own tuition or living situation. Even for those students who are not paying for their tuition, having money in the bank is important for many reasons. The reality is that we want to make money in the most convenient form. Get a job? Sure. But many students cannot cut time from academics to earn cash.

On an average day, I leave my off-campus apartment at 8:00am and return only at night. There must be a way to make money, right? Should I take surveys online? Should I donate my plasma at the local Bio-Life plasma service location? Should I drive for Uber? None of the above. I found a simple solution for this by selling my notes on the digital platform called Omega Notes. I looked into the platform and saw that I could post my notes and sell them at any value I choose. What does this mean? It means that if I go to every class (let that sink in…No skipping or ditching class on hungover mornings) then I have a product that other students don’t. I also added the value of translating complex concepts and terms into a form of language that us students understand. I used a unique technique of placing the product in front of my direct customers – the students in my class at the perfect time. I did this by waiting until 2-3 days before the exam and sending a personal email to each student in the class notifying them I had notes up for sale. The next day I had made around 25 sales and I was happy!

In addition to being mindblown, I had money in my pocket! Since trying this for the first time, I have done this for three exams and had the same outcome. Not only is this a money-maker for me, but it encourages me to take good notes and brainstorming how to earn more money through selling notes.

It is easy to sell your notes but you can market your notes too. Below are a few suggestions on how to ensure that your notes sell quick and repeatedly.

  1. Social Media-Tell your friends that you are selling your notes. Whenever you post notes to the site, share your listing with your networks. This ensures that your notes get the most attention. One of your Facebook friends may want those Chem notes.
  2. Tag your notes appropriately-Tagging your notes with the right words can help dramatically. Try to tag the notes with phrases or terms that are relevant to your class. For example, don’t just sell bio notes. Sell Bio 204 Exam 3 Study Guide. The more keywords you use, the more likely your notes will be seen by others.
  3. Have sellable notes-List notes that are good notes. Try to have notes that have lots of graphics, are legible and detailed. Good notes will give you a good reputation and thus good reviews. Buyers will buy notes from a seller with a 5 star rating before they will buy notes from a 1 star seller.
  4. Post more-The more you post, the greater the chance is your notes will sell. Plus, more listings provide more credibility to you as a seller. More notes mean more profit.
