Don't Sell Just Sell It, Noit It!

Can you feel it? It's much like the spin of the Earth. E-v-e-r s-o s-l-o-w-l-y, we're being herded by unseen forces swirling about; price, comfort, security, and laziness. Why fight the crowds or the traffic when it can be done from home? If you don't have to leave the house, don't.

Massive online sites such as Ebay and Amazon make shopping online simple. Prepare to add another couch magnet to your arsenal: NoitWorld.com.

Before you ask:

In the US Military, the term “NOIT” is used to describe something as “cool” or “hip.” This Military slang term served as the impetus for the creation of this website, which combines the variety and diversity of a true online marketplace with the cool, hip world of social media.

NoitWorld, launched on June 1, 2009, heralds itself as the "newest, coolest, and most consumer-friendly online marketplace for buying and selling new and used merchandise." Although I have never used the site I did peruse it extensively. Users have the ability to place products in more than 100 categories, such as Anything Goes, Motorcycles, Cars, Real Estate, etc. Depending upon the item being sold, ads are posted for 30 days and are either free, $20, or $25 per ad. The site is actually global in scope although most items listed currently are from the US or Mexico.

Noitworld.com, however, is not "just another sales site." It is the first site of its type that allows users to re-post listings on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, and more. Todd Foret and Sean Legros, both of Yuma, AZ, developed the sites unique strategy:

“With so many internet users spending a majority of their time on their social media sites, it only makes sense to provide a buyers and sellers market that can interact with these sites,” said Foret.

Although "in business" for just over a month, there are plenty of items available, from a classic Styx CD to a beach home in San Felipe, Mexico. As the economy doesn't seem to be immediately bouncing back, maybe it's time to start "Noiting" all stuff.
