Frequently Asked Questions

Students

Through friends, family, church members, and contacts every student knows somebody that owns or manages a business, group, or organization. Students & alumni are able to leverage these connections to help recruit supportive businesses that help pay for college. Simply introduce, sign them up, and enjoy the financial benefits!

It’s simple… complete these 3 easy steps and you are ready to roll:

  1. REGISTER You will begin your registration here where you will first submit your student email and name.
  2. AGREE Next, you will be taken to an agreement page where you must verify that “You are only eligible to serve as a KNOWTICE BRAND AMBASSADOR if you are currently enrolled in a college, university, or technical school, have achieved alumni status and are currently working to satisfy existing student loan debt, are a rising Freshman preparing to enter college, or are a former student seeking to re-enroll.” Accept the terms of the agreement and then hit continue.
  3. SET UP TO GET PAID Lastly, you will then proceed to the Knowtice/Paychex portal and provide your personal and financial info. Once documented we will know where to send your direct deposits so you can get paid! Make sure that you have available your checking/savings account and routing numbers when preparing to complete your registration.

The entire process usually takes about 8-10 minutes to complete.

Upon securing a paid participation commitment from the business/organization, you will be listed as the Brand Ambassador of record on their profile. Then, after Knowtice receives their monthly or annual payment, your residual payment will be deposited into your preferred checking or savings account within 30 – 45 days of each payment we receive. 

As long as you are still a college student and matriculating towards graduation you will receive a residual, every single year until you graduate, as long as the business partner continues as a paid participant.

As a Brand Ambassador you will be introducing KNOWTICE the app to businesses, schools, churches, and other groups or organizations. This is also known as S2B (student to business) commerce. You will show them how the app will benefit them as well as their customers/prospects, and/or members. Emphasize that unlike any other platform 75% of all ad revenue received from the partners’ profile pages goes back to students.This in turn assists students, and their families (their customers), to attend and most importantly graduate from college debt free.

Lastly, if needed, also assist the new partner in building his Knowtice profile page. No big deal! Typically, it only takes about 20-30 minutes to build a profile. It’s that easy!

When creating a new profile, every paying partner (businesses, churches, groups and organizations…) that joins Knowtice will choose a college or university to receive 10%. All of our partner colleges will be shown in a drop-down list and they will choose from the list. 1-2 times per year we will calculate the totals to be allocated to our member colleges and make a contribution to that school.

K-12’s are deep-rooted within our community. What better way then for any partnering colleges and universities and paying partners to bring on a school or schools on their behalf. A great way to give back!  These privileges are good for any teacher, club, sports team, or anything affiliated with the school to have their own customized profile.

Partnering colleges and universities can invite up to (25) K-12’s to join our platform for free! Also, one K-12 can come onboard as a BOGO with any supportive paying partners.




Financial Literacy

Financial literacy is educating students and their families that expensive, life-altering student loans are no longer the only option in order to attend and/or graduate from college.That is why we want to team with K-12’s, colleges & universities, and supportive businesses to jointly spread the word about Knowtice.

Well, we couldn’t help them before they graduated but we can certainly help them now! Through our network of schools reaching out to their Alums we want to invite them to become Brand Ambassadors and utilize our platform to help eliminate their student loan debt. While helping all future, current, and past college students we bring attention to the problem while creating a revenue stream for not only the students but the colleges and universities as well.

Like colleges and universities, K-12’s are deep-rooted within their community. So,we thought it would be appropriate for our partnering colleges and universities (and also paying business members) to bring on a school or schools on their behalf. It’s a great way to give back to the community while also educating our young people! 

Each partnering college and university can invite up to (25) K-12’s to join our platform for free for every year!! Also, one K-12 can come onboard as a BOGO for every paying business partner that joins Knowtice.

The K-12 account will remain free as long as they continue educating students and their families on financial literacy.

Every group or club, sports team, teacher, or anything that is affiliated with the school is allowed to have their own customized profile with unlimited privileges.
