College students: Did you know that you can earn money from your study notes? Are you a good note taker? Are your classmates always asking to see your notes? Well now there is a marketplace to sell those study notes and make some extra money.
The site is called StudySoup and right now, over 120,000 students are buying and selling class notes, study guides, flashcards, and other course materials.
To get started, simply apply to be a notetaker and set up an account. Then you can upload course materials to the site where other students can purchase them through the peer-to-peer marketplace.
Students get paid a commission for each set of course materials their classmates buy. StudySoup also offers a bonus to students when they provide content for select high-demand courses, which the company announces at the beginning of each semester. Additionally, students make extra money when they refer friends who signup as notetakers as well a portion of their sales. The average student actively using the site make between $300-500 per course, but top-performing elite notetakers have exceeded $2,000 in profit. One student, Elizabeth Gruber, got paid $600 for the notes she sold in a single month at George Washington University. That is pretty impressive!
