Advertising on n0tice.com
means placing on ‘offer
‘. An offer can be something you want to sell, an item you want, a job or service you offer or need doing, or maybe you simply want to offer something to share or swap.
Whatever your offer is, posting it on n0tice is free and quick to do. We’ll take it that you are logged in and have focussed on your location. At the top of the right-hand side of your page, you’ll see a button to ‘post a new offer
’. Clicking on that button takes you to a page asking where the offer is based – just choose a general area rather than revealing your exact address.
Now you will see a short form. The ‘title’ will be the thing that appears as a headline on the site so keep it short and accurate. The description is your chance to add more detail – colours, condition, specific qualities etc.
If you have a picture of the item, select the ‘choose file’ button to browse to it on your computer – the maximum sizes are written below.
Finally, how much do you want? If it’s something to give away, you are done here so simply click the blue ‘create offer’ button and it will be offered for free.
But if there’s a cost, select the currency in the dropdown box and enter the price. This will also show up in the headline of your published offer.
That’s it you are done and the offer will appear on the site shortly but, before you go, you also have the chance to promote your offer. This means it will be highlighted on the site so that it stands out from all the other offers and sits right at the top of the lists on the right hand side of the page.
Follow the instructions on the site to buy this service via paypal.

Setting up your own noticeboard means you’ll have your own space with a unique URL and can personalise its look and feel. Plus you’ll have the opportunity to earn money.
To get started on this, we’ll take it that you are logged in and have focussed on your location.
In the white toolbar at the top of the you’ll see a cross and the words ‘create a new noticeboard
.’ Clicking there will take you to some further information and some examples of other people’s noticeboards. The first thing to do is choose a name for your noticeboard – that will become your URL so it’s best to keep it short. Try it out in the white box then click the blue ‘create’ button when you are ready.
The next screen shows you how you can personalise your noticeboard with options for layout, theme, font etc. on the left but first some basic information is needed. Once you’ve completed this take some time to explore the personalisation options to get your noticeboard set up.
Being a noticeboard owner also gives you access to some tools to manage your space. You’ll see there’s a space that keeps track on any revenue you’ve earned, an area called ‘moderation’ where anything that’s been flagged by a user will be highlighted for you to review and a place to asign administration rights to other people if you’re working in a team.

I spoke to journalism.co.uk‘s Sarah Marshall earlier this week for this podcast about so-lo-mo. We were joined by Northcliffe’s Lee Williams to talk about how the world of social, local and mobile tools and technologies is impacting on the way people interact with news, revenues and hyperlocal publishing. More on that here.

Today we’re launching ads for noticeboards.
As a noticeboard owner, you can earn revenue by selling featured positions for classified listings or ‘offers’ as we call them, similar to the traditional yellow pages model.
You will earn 85% of the revenue generated on a noticeboard while n0tice retains 15%. There’s also options for using your earnings to support charities.
Posting an offer on a noticeboard is self-serve and free for n0tice participants. Offers can then be upgraded to a Featured placement for £1/day (or the equivalent base-level regional currency). Featured positioning includes both a visual enhancement and priority ranking on the page.
Payments are handled via PayPal which means we can support 25 different currencies around the world.
So, now in addition to already having custom design options, user moderation tools and site analytics, as a noticeboard owner, you will see a new ‘Revenue’ tab in the admin panel which tracks how much is earned.
Noticeboard owners have a pretty robust toolset now for running a community platform. The addition of an ad platform to the service should help make community management a self-sustaining activity for some and hopefully a profitable one for many.
There have also been several smaller features released over the last few weeks, too: geoRSS, media can be embedded with posts, multiple noticeboards per user, multiple admins per noticeboard, and more speed improvements.
You can also print your offer page to post on real world noticeboards…it includes a QR code and pull tabs with perforation lines for easy cutting.
There’s a photo of the printed offer page at the end of the presentation below which gives further details.
