New Categories on Whickr Marketplace

Whickr has until now been a marketplace with a sole focus on helping equestrians advertising horses for sale and ponies for sale. After listening to customer feedback, we’ve made the decision to broaden the options for advertising to other complimentary categories in the equestrian community.

The additional advertising categories that have been added are; Equestrian Properties, Horse Tack, Horseboxes and Trailers, Freelancers, Jobs, Business Services, Stallions at Stud, and Cats and Dogs.

Horse Tack

Facebook has been a very popular platform for advertising tack, brand new and second hand. However, recently it has also become a hive of activity for fraudulent behavior. That is why we have introduced horse tack as a category where equestrians can buy and sell tack brand new or secondhand on a platform specifically designed for this type of activity, and away from the fraudsters on Facebook.

Horseboxes and Trailers for Sale

An essential item to help get your horse from a to b during the busy competition season. Horseboxes and trailers for sale are now available to browse on Whickr. We have a wide selection of horseboxes and trailers for sale advertised on our platform, from trailers to HGV horseboxes suitable for traveling around Europe.

Equestrian Properties

Equestrian properties for sale in the UK and further afield are now available to advertise and browse on Whickr. Whether you’re looking to buy your first equestrian property with a handful of stables and a few acres or a professional looking for an equestrian property for sale, check out equestrian properties for sale on Whickr.

Equestrian Freelancers

With thousands of equestrians each week looking to buy horses advertised for sale on our platform, now we have space for those equestrian freelancers who help owners of horses to advertise on our platform. If you are an established equestrian freelancer looking to scale your business or a recently qualified instructor aiming to build your first client base, Whickr has an area where you can promote your business.

Equestrian Jobs

Finding suitable employees with the right skills and experience in the equestrian market can be challenging. Equally, as a person working in the equestrian industry it is not always easy to discover new opportunities that might be perfect for what you are looking for. At Whickr we now have a place for equestrian businesses to advertise new equestrian job opportunities.

Equestrian Business Services

Equestrian businesses can now advertise their services on the Whickr platform! Equestrian Businesses find it difficult to fight for attention on social platforms and on Google. Now we have a dedicated category for equestrian businesses to advertise to their target market what they do and how to get in touch with them.

Stallions at Stud

Some of the best stallions in the world are standing at stud in the UK. As well as advertising horses of all age ranges including youngstock. Owners of stallions offering stud services can also now advertise on Whickr.

Cats and Dogs for Sale

No farm is complete without an organic and sustainable rat catcher. Cats and dogs for sale are also now available to browse on Whickr.

How do I advertise using the new categories?

To advertise using the new categories, it is the same experience as when equestrians are advertising horses for sale; create an account, verify your email and visit the Create Advert page on Whickr. On the Create Advert page in the top field labeled Category and auto-populated with Horse, to the right is a dropdown which provides the advertiser with the option of advertising in the other categories we have available.

Can I use the Feature, Social Media and Boost Add-Ons?

We are expecting add-ons to help increase visibility and make your adverts stand out from the crowd to be available shortly. That includes our Feature add-on which pins your advert to the top of the category for seven days and highlighted in a golden yellow to make sure it cannot be missed; Social Media add-ons ensuring your advert features across Whickr’s very popular Instagram, Facebook and TikTok channels; lastly our Boost add-on used when you feel your advert is dropping too low down the list and want it to feature back at the top by boosting it back up there. To find out more, read our blog announcing advert add-ons.

How much does it cost to advertise in the new categories?

To find out more about what benefits come with advertising in each category including the duration, alongside how much it costs, please visit our Pricing page on the Whickr platform.

Looking Ahead

We expect the new categories available to equestrians in our community to prove valuable and provide assistance to equestrians beyond buying and selling horses, and touch on other areas where products and services are important. Watch this space! We are constantly looking at ways to help equestrians with their online experience.
