Selling online means you’re definitely not giving people physical copies of you notes. Instead, you’re selling digital copies of the content. So first, you’re going to want to get an app that lets you use your phone to scan your notes and then convert them to a pdf. Our recommendation for this is Adobe Scan. Adobe Scan lets you take ridiculously high-quality pictures of written text and turn them into a pdf. The entire process is really simple and intuitive.

Next, You Want To Make A Cover Page

The fact that you’re selling your notes means that you believe you have something that’s worth paying for. And you’re going to need to convince people of that. That means you’re going to need a killer cover page. That’s easy enough to with Canva. You can download the Canva mobile app for both iOS and android, or go to Once on Canva, you can choose a template that works for your material and easily fill it out.
