Tips for posting your horse for sale on BestHorsesOnline.com classifieds:
Here are some tips we have compiled to help you get the best out of your horse for sale ad.
Search Engine Friendly:
Remember, the ads on our horse classifieds are search engine and keyword friendly so when you place your ad, include keywords and phrases that will help buyers stumble across your ad as they are surfing the internet for horses for sale.
Use a catchy but simple title on your ad. For example: “Fancy 1999 dressage Schoolmaster.” It is not too wordy, but tells the buyer a lot about the horse in a short amount of time. This is important when buyers are scrolling through pages and pages of horses for sale and you want them to pick out your ad to click on and read more.
Keep your descriptions clear and concise. A good start would be to outline your horse’s level of training/experience. Describe what it’s best at and an example of any championships won. Again if a buyer is searching through heaps of horses for sale, get their attention quickly with a few good key points rather then writing a novel about how much their great grand sire won etc.
Good photos are probably the most important factor when advertising your horse for sale regardless if your horse is $500 or $50,000.
Groom your horse well. Even bath and braid him. A clean shiny horse in clean tack makes for a great first impression. The rider/handler should be clean and tidy also. Take photos with a good camera, blurry shots will not attract much attention. If you must take a still from a video make sure it is NOT blurry and not too dark if taken indoors.
It is a good idea to show buyers a few photos. A conformation shot, a head shot and a couple of action/undersaddle shots are quite appropriate. It may take a while to get these great shots, but a picture conveys so much to a buyer in a moment’s glance that it is a crucial part of selling your horse.
When selling your horse, be prepared have a video of your horse available to potential buyers. The same idea that goes for photos goes for videos. Groom your horse, wear neat attire etc.
At www.besthorsesonline.com we offer video ads that support video clips of the following file types: mov, mpeg, wmv. (Your clip must be less then 5 MB.) We also offer the option of embedding digital video into your ad right from www.youtube.com or another source.

BestHorsesOnline.com offers a place to enter keywords that are related to your ad. Use this area to help the buyers target your ad specifically through the search engines. If you are selling a hunter/ jumper horse with many wins, put words like “hunter/jumper champion” age of the horse, gender, and your location in the keywords option.
