Originally launched as a college project in 2005, UK-based World Ad Trader (www.WorldAdTrader.com) is now a major force in on-line classified advertising. Think Craigslist with better functionality.

And its name highlights one of World Ad Trader’s most unique features. It is truly an international site, with listings in the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. People and businesses from all over the world are able to post and respond to ads. English and most European languages are supported.
“We have created a global marketplace, where people from all over the world can advertise, make purchases and learn about businesses in other parts of the world,” says David Stephens of London, the Managing Director of World Ad Trader. “It’s a distinctive brand and a very special site. People can conduct business transactions quickly and easily. And because we have a worldwide reach, they can find the best deals anywhere.
“Plus their businesses can draw potential customers from all over the world. It’s a win-win on both sides.”
In addition, World Ad Trader has two satellite websites: Word Ad Index (www.worldadindex.com), where businesses upload graphics and Social Ad Trader (www.socialadtrader.com), a social media site. The graphics on World Ad Trader and Word Ad Index contain links that enable users to view their websites with one simple click. In some sections, the graphic ads last up to 25 years.

Social Ad Trader is free to join and allows users to log in with their Facebook account. It will import photos and status messages from Facebook and has the capability to link friends as well as social groups. Social Ad Trader also allows users to link photos and video, and have people comment on them.
The site allows businesses to advertise upcoming events and also includes free personal ads.
“All three sites – World Ad Trader, Word Ad Index and Social Ad Trader – are linked together at the bottom of the page,” explains Stephens. “You can easily navigate from one site to the other. So whatever you’re looking for, you can probably find it on one of our sites.”
