5 Reasons to Love BIGEQ!

May 7, 2018

TOP 5 Reasons to Love BIGEQ - in the words of our customers!

1) IT'S A POWERFUL ORGANIZATIONAL TOOL "We directed all inquires to view the ad, as all the information is in one place. It saves sending multiple video links, over and over, to potential buyers. Any horse we sell will be advertised thru Bigeq for that reason alone."

2) IT'S SUPER USER-FRIENDLY "Of the three ads I posted online Bigeq.com was the easiest ad to submit and I had the most interest coming from it."

3) WE'VE GOT SERIOUS BUYERS "Have had serious buyers contact thru Bigeq.com. Facebook seems to have more tire kickers. A great place to sell quality horses/ponies. Will use again in future!"

4) WE'RE EASY ON THE EYES "Its easy format makes searching and selling horses very efficient and the less cluttered look makes it appealing for both the seller and the buyer. I never use any other site to sell my horses."

5) WE DO SOCIAL MEDIA SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO "Bigeq.com is very user friendly and instantly gives sellers access to their large, desirable market of shoppers across various social media platforms. I especially like being able to add updated pictures and videos to my sale ad at any time."

We've spent nearly twenty years honing and customizing our service to present your horses beautifully and to a highly focused market of hunter/jumper buyers. Our goal has been and always will be to help you sell your horses.

We know it’s a jungle out there, both online and off. Buying and selling has never been more complex and competitive. With social media companies it’s a lot to keep up on - Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, and don’t get us started on Facebook… so many Groups, Pages, and an often unreliable or highly manipulated newsfeed with little to no views, unless you pay for exposure.

Amidst the chaos, BIGEQ brings simplicity and clarity to buying and selling hunter/jumpers.

NOTICE: Site Upgrades April 2017

April 25, 2017

Hi everyone!

We’ve just completed our latest round of upgrades - most of the improvements based on your feedback. So thank you for helping us make our service better and better!

There are a few important changes for you, and especially our sellers, to know about:

1) You can now automatically upgrade your listing from Basic to Premium through the website. So go ahead, upgrade that ad!

2) Premium Ads will now “refresh” and be bumped to the top of the search results every TWO months!

3) You can now list two jumping abilities for your horses, the height at which they are CURRENTLY showing, and their PROSPECTIVE ability. This is especially helpful for young horses and horses in training. Now users can search for horses actively showing at a certain height, or search for horses that have the potential to move up with training.

4) We’ve added a Lease Price category, so sellers may now list both a sale price and a lease price. So simple and so helpful!

Let us know if you have any questions. As always, thanks for your thoughtful feedback and continuing support! Happy buying and selling your beautiful hunters, jumpers, equitation horses and ponies for sale!

NOTICE to Sellers of Prospects on Bigeq.com

March 3, 2017

Dear Sellers on Bigeq.com,

we are working to improve our Prospects section. As part of this process, we've been working on ways to represent a horse's potential jumping ability. During this process, we did some testing which may have affected your listings. We would request that you double check to verify that the "jumping ability" which is listed on your ad is accurate, and make any changes if necessary.

If you have any comments or suggestions on how we can improve the website to better represent your quality hunter, jumper, equitation or pony prospects, please feel free to contact us!
