Back to School for Seattle's eNotes.com

Posted by Rob Lewis

Next week it's back to school for the kids and Techvibes will be launching our Seattle Start-Up Index - so I thought it would be fitting to cover a Seattle-based start-up that plays in the school space.

eNotes is a comprehensive online educational resource. Used daily by thousands of students, teachers, professors, and researchers, eNotes combines the highest-quality educational content with innovative services in order to provide an online learning environment unlike any other.

Privately held eNotes was founded in 2004 and has been bootstrapped and profitable to date thanks to a subscription model that works. The site is loaded with free content and services with in-depth non-commodity content available behind a paywall. Students, teachers, and classrooms pay to get access and site advertising disappears for registered users.

During this upcoming school year, eNotes estimates that their site will see 3 Million monthly uniques and 12 Million pageviews per month. Every weekday during the school year, they expect around 750 new users to sign up. Their community will answer aapproximately 60 questions per day and participate in hundreds of discussions per month around literary, historical, and other academic topic areas.

A network of over 1,000 REAL teachers and professors are creating content and contributing to the site. eNotes is also creating their own content and working with large educational publishers to bring their content online - often for the first time.
