Sell Your Study Notes and Make Money Online

By Cathy Carter

Putting together good notes in class is a crucial factor that can be a determinant of your success in school, according to The Learning Center. However, taking notes might be too difficult sometimes, which could discourage you not to make them. What if you had an added motivation in making notes, such as earning money?

If you are a student looking for inspiration to take study notes diligently, this useful article will discuss how you can sell your study notes through websites like Thinkswap and make money online.

How Does Notes Selling Work?

College or University is quite tricky if you lack the necessary study resources so you could pass your subjects. This is why students look for websites such as Thinkswap for study resources that they still lack.

The demand for subject notes has dramatically increased over the years, and the internet paved the way for supplying that demand. Your role is to upload your subject notes so that other students can buy them. In this way, you are helping a fellow student and making money in the process—this is how notes selling works.

What Type of Notes Can I Sell?

The notes that you can sell include your subject notes, lecture notes, and even study guides. You upload and sell the notes that you have taken while completing the different subjects in school. The most significant thing is that your notes should cover all the given topics under a particular subject.

How Much Can I Earn?

The amount you can earn depends on the number of downloads your subject notes get. This means the more students that use your study notes, the more money you make. The amount that is paid to you is called “royalty fees.”

Every time a document you uploaded is sold, a commission is deducted by the website where you uploaded your notes, and the remaining amount becomes yours rightfully.

Details of profit-sharing are essential because there are websites that charge commissions of more than 50%. This is unethical since you have intellectual rights over your subject notes since you made them. It would be best that you choose to upload your subject notes on websites that charge lesser commissions, sites like Thinkswap that pay up to 65% royalty fees.

How Can I Make More Money?

The best way for you to make more money by selling notes online is to create high-quality subject notes because these types of notes become in-demand.

According to The Learning Center, you can improve your note-taking by jotting down keywords, focusing on the main points of the lecture, and making organized or structured notes, so they are easy to read. In doing this, you are making your study notes concise and brief, which makes it more appealing to student readers.

Things to Consider Before Uploading Documents

Not all note-sharing websites are created equal because there are websites on the internet that take advantage of students who upload their notes by charging massive commissions or even worse, sites that do not pay.

It would be best that you only upload your subject notes in trusted and reliable note-sharing websites, so you rest assured that you will be treated fairly.

Selling your subject notes online is a wonderful way for you to get rewards for the hard work that you do while in school. Not only will you feel great because of the monetary gains, but also by helping your fellow students learn and pass their subjects.

Rootstock Festival 2018

The 2nd edition of the Rootstock Festival 2018 took place this weekend bringing together more than 1,600 festival-goers from all over Europe and the United States, in the heart of the vineyards of Château de Pommard.

From July 13 to July 15, Château de Pommard opened the doors of its domain and its magnificent gardens arranged for the occasion around two areas: one dedicated to the young talents of the label Rootstock and a main stage where succeeded Jungle, Breakbot and Keziah Jones, the three headliners of the 2018 edition.

Worried about the environment and the ecology for the production of their wines, the Carabello-Baum family, owner of the Château since 2014, also had a Pop-Up Hotel installed, consisting of nine luxury tents. Some festival-goers were able to stay in the heart of the Festival and enjoy beautiful country picnics or, like all the participants, bike rides, yoga classes, wine tastings and also the World Cup Final Game thanks to a giant screen installed in the main courtyard of the property.

Château de Pommard will host the 3rd edition of the Rootstock Festival next summer and will open a New School of Oenology in September 2018 composed of three new experiences to learn the secrets of tasting, agreements and wine selection.

SAMUEL ADAMS NEW ENGLAND IPA

Samuel Adams Releases Juicy, Hazy New England IPA Nationwide

New England IPA Brings a Hazy Punch of Citrus Juiciness to a Hop-Forward Beer Style

New England’s leading independent craft brewer is paying homage to its roots by proudly celebrating the national release of Samuel Adams New England IPA, a refreshingly juicy and hazy IPA. Previously available only in New England, Sam Adams brewers listened to drinkers’ enthusiasm for the beer, which was the best-selling growler of 2017 at the Boston Brewery, and are responding by rolling it out across the country for craft beer lovers to enjoy.

Developed in Sam Adams’ experimental nanobrewery in Boston, New England IPA is a medium-bodied, unfiltered brew with a slight sweetness that is perfectly balanced by the unique combination of Mosaic, Citra, Galaxy, Simcoe and Cascade hops. The hops bring a big fruited pineapple and grapefruit hop character to the beer, and at 35 IBUs, the brew is neither bitter nor harsh on drinkers’ palates. At 6.8% ABV, the unfiltered IPA is a mouth-watering refresher with a smooth, clean finish that leaves drinkers wanting another sip.

Compared to West Coast IPAs, which are known for their prominent hop bitterness and light, dry mouthfeel, New England IPAs generally have a juicy and luscious flavor along with a hazy appearance and are best enjoyed fresh.

 

Jim Koch, Sam Adams Founder & Brewer, on New England IPA:

“New England IPAs originated in our backyard, but there are still plenty of drinkers across the country who haven’t had a chance to try this unique style yet. Our brewers worked for more than a year to develop a brew with a distinctive set of flavor characteristics that involve unusual and novel brewing practices to give our version of a New England IPA its hazy, juicy and smooth character. We can’t wait for drinkers to try it for themselves and see what the haze craze is all about!”

New England IPA Availability:

Previously only available on draft at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery and at select bars and restaurants in the Boston area, New England IPA is now available nationwide on draft. Beginning in April, New England IPA will also be available in four-pack 16 oz. cans for a suggested retail price of $8.99 – $9.99. Prices vary by market.

New Brew from Peru

7-Eleven® Sustains Push for Single Origin, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Coffees

For its next exclusive single-origin coffee, 7-Eleven, Inc. headed south to the Cajamarca region of Peru. As with its other single-origin, sustainably sourced coffee, the new brew from Peru is Rainforest Alliance Certified.

Made with 100 percent Arabica beans, the newest 7-Eleven® single-origin coffee has bright citrus notes complimented by vanilla, cinnamon and berry undertones. To ensure the best quality and freshest taste, the Cajamarca region was selected, in part, for its prime harvest season between August and October. The hand-picked beans were grown in the region high in the Andes Mountains of Peru, known for its small family farms and artisanal farming methods. After harvesting, the fresh crop was authentically roasted to a medium level for a smooth rich taste. Peru is the eighth largest coffee producer in the world and one of the leading growers of certified coffees.

“Todays’ coffee-drinkers are more sophisticated and, in addition to wanting a great-tasting cup of coffee, many also are looking for something extra,” said Raj Kapoor, 7-Eleven senior vice president of fresh food and proprietary beverages. “Millennials, in particular, want coffee crops that are sustainably grown, sourced directly from small farms, and made from single-origin beans rather than blends. Peruvian coffee is one that fits all those criteria, and Cajamarca is considered one of the best coffee-growing regions in the country.”

Many of Peru’s coffee farms are in the foothills of the Andes with processing mills on the Pacific side of the range. The Cajamarca region is in the highlands of the Andes in the northern portion of the country.

This is the third limited-time, single-origin coffee offered at 7-Eleven, the fourth largest coffee retailer in the U.S. The others were from Matagalpa, Nicaragua, and Chiapas, Mexico. Available year-round, the retailer’s popular 100 percent Colombian coffee is now made with Rainforest Alliance Certified single-origin beans.

The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization that seeks to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods. Carrying the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal with the little green frog means the 100 percent Arabica beans for 7-Eleven stores’ new coffee are sourced from coffee-growers whose farms are required to meet strict standards designed to protect the environment, conserve wildlife and promote the well-being of local communities.

7-Eleven is working with Conservation International (CI) to set measurable corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals to reduce its environmental footprint. 7-Eleven’s CSR mission has three focus areas – planet, products and people. The retailer is a member of CI’s Business and Sustainability Council, a forum for corporate leaders taking positive environmental actions in their businesses, to explore mutually beneficial ways to further reduce its environmental impact.

As part of its CSR objectives, 7-Eleven will continue to seek out responsibly sourced coffees and other products and packaging with less environmental impact.

Like all its proprietary beverages sold in a cup, the new single-origin coffee qualifies for 7Rewards®, 7-Eleven’s customer loyalty program. Through its mobile app, 7Rewards customers earn a free any-size drink after the purchase of six drink purchases. The 7-Eleven app is available for download in Google Play and the App store.

Peru single-origin coffee from Cajamarca is available for a limited time at participating 7-Eleven stores.

Glenlivet 12 YO

The delicate and complex character of the 12 Year Old derives from the height and width of stills at The Glenlivet Distillery. This expression is matured in a mixture of cask types, including American and European Oak. Maturation in American oak imparts vanilla notes and gives the whisky its distinct smoothness.

$52.99

Glenlivet 15 YO

The 15 Year Old’s distinctive character is the result of selective maturation; a proportion of the spirit is matured in a selection of French Oak casks for a limited period, so as not to overpower the final result. The Glenlivet’s low density allows the spirit to penetrate deep into the wood, imparting the expression’s distinctive spiciness. The French Oak also increases the intensity of the whisky, resulting in a richer and creamier finish.

$57.99

Glenlivet 18 YO


 


The rich palate of the 18 Year Old is the result of a combination of several different cask types. This complex expression, with American and European Oak, first and second fill, all play their parts. European Oak imparts spicy hints and brings additional complexity. The first-fill American Oak adds tropical fruitiness.
