Course Hero is an educational technology company offering course-specific content, tools, and services to help students excel in their courses. Our resources consist of crowdsourced study documents, expert tutors, and customizable flashcards—all available 24/7.

We are impressed by Course Hero's large library of notes and study aids - they claim over 7 million documents - and the granular level of organization to the study aids.  A customer can break down documentation on the site both subject and school.  The wide range of available study materials gives Course Hero a strong national presence and reach, which translates to a large pool of potential customers for affiliates to tap in to.

We love the fact that NeatoShop has so many consumer facing conversion incentives, which affiliates can talk about and leverage to traffic on their sites.  NeatoShop offers free shipping world wide, and free shipping is consistently rated by consumers as the number one preferred conversion incentive. NeatoShop also offers frequent product discounts and promotions, which can be used to provide purchase incentive on both a product and a site level.

We are impressed with the range of musical instruments available for lessons through the ArtistWorks site.  Many sites in the music education space are very focused, usually on one instrument.  We believe that offering a broad selection of instruments and teachers will help ArtistWorks expand its consumer base by tapping into a larger pool of potential customers.

Pressy is a tiny button that connects to the headset jack of any Android smartphone. It then can be configured to perform dozens of differents tasks on the phone, and basically acts as a configurable shortcut button for the phone. Eevery sequence of presses on the button triggers a different action.

We love the fact that Pressy got its start through crowd source funding. This start is indicative of a high likely demand for their product, a simple, tactile button to operate specific features and apps on a smartphone.  We expect this product to do well with tech bloggers.
