New Sites Listia and Crowdtap


I've been spending a lot of time on recent sites that I have discovered. Listia and Crowdtap are their names, and I am having fun getting to know them both.

First, there is Listia.com. This site is like ebay meets Craigslist, but the items are FREE. That's right, FREE. The way it works is you can sell your items you don't want. We all have items around the house that are collecting dust, so why not get rid of them. The item goes up for auction and other users bid on it with credits. The person who bids the highest wins, and the credits are transferred to your account. This is how you are able to bid on items.

Don't be fooled into thinking that there will be junk listed on this site. Since joining, I have won a vintage Dooney & Bourke bag, tons of vintage jewelry, a cellphone, and a few odds and ends. It is so fun and highly addicting.

If you want to join for FREE, click here: Sign-up for Listia. You'll even get credits for doing so.



Next up, there is Crowdtap.com, which is currently in beta. This is invite-only, so not everyone knows about this great site. If you are familiar with RepNation, then you will want to join this site.

Crowdtap is unique. You earn points and money for participating in discussions. You also comment on some of the responses to earn points as well. There are levels to reach for each amount of points you earn. The great thing is that you can use your money to donated to a specific charity (I chose TWLOHA) and/or use the money to put on an Amazon.com gift card.

There is great talk of brands joining the site. Who knows, maybe there will be product sampling in the future. At any rate, you'll want to get started on your journey with this innovative site.

If you want to JOIN by invite-only, click here: I want to join Crowdtap. You'll get money for doing so.
