Gumtree Services

Gumtree is a ‘classified’ website featuring a range of different advertisements. The advertisements are split into searchable categories, which are as follows:

  • Motors
  • For Sale
  • Competitions
  • Jobs
  • Property
  • Community
  • Services
  • Pets

The categories feature ‘sub-categories’ where you can search for a specific item such as car parts, musical instruments, hospitality and catering jobs, property to rent, events, tuition services and pets for sale.

Gumtree in your area

As well as being able to search adverts by function, you can search by area. Search by city or county. By clicking on the specific area that you want to search, you can see the amount of classified adverts in the area at the time. You can also see who has sold what in the area in the last few minutes.

Posting an ad on Gumtree

To post an advertisement on Gumtree, you must first create an account. From there, you select the category that you wish to post the advertisement in and a sub-category, such as:

  • Motors: Motorbike parts and accessories.
  • Property: Holiday Rentals.
  • For Sale: Garden Power Tools: Pressure Washers.
  • Jobs: Accountancy: Bookkeeping.
  • Services: Health and Beauty: Life Coaching.
  • Pets: Pets for Sale: Small Furries.
  • Community: Music: Musicians Wanted.

Once you have decided on the appropriate category, you must enter your location using a postcode and choose whether to include a map on your advert, which will help more people see the approximate location. The next step is to choose a 100 character title. You can then upload up to nine images to help your advert gain replies. The most important part of the advert is the description which can be up to 10,000 characters long. You can also link to your personal website. You must then choose which avenue of contact you prefer, be it email or phone number.

There are a number of options to make your advert stand out and get more replies. The main three options are as follows:

  • Urgent: Up to three times more views and replies, perfect if you need to hire, rent or sell quickly.
  • Featured: Up to seven times more views and replies and the ad will appear at the top of the listings for three, seven or 14 days.
  • Spotlight: Your post will appear on the Gumtree homepage and will be seen by millions of people. Spotlighted-Gumtree-Ad

Gumtree’s Top Tips for creating a great ad

Be Clear

Be clear and concise in your title about the item/service/job.

Be Descriptive

Think of all the typical questions that someone might ask and place them in your ad.

If offering a job, make the requirements clear

Give specific requirements such as qualifications, visa and language skills upfront in your ad. Also state if you want to receive CVs and references upfront.

If looking for a tenant, be clear

To get the right tenants interested in your property, be clear about the size, any upfront costs, the area and when the room is available.

Add pictures

Photos make your advert much more appealing to a potential respondent. They attract more attention and generate more replies.

Be friendly

A bit of humour and background to your advert goes a long way- make your advert more human.

Price it right

Make sure you have entered a price for your product or service.

A Background To Gumtree

Gumtree is the number one classified site in the UK, with almost a million new adverts posted on the site each week, as well as 8 million visitors per month. Half of their visitors use the iOS and Android apps to access the listings, which can include cars, jobs and flats, as well as other things like furniture, mobile phones and other electronic devices.

Gumtree was formed in 2000 with the idea of linking people from other countries, such as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, who were planning to move or had only just arrived in the UK with places to live and jobs. From this is has grown to offer classified adverts to connect people who want to buy or want to sell almost anything.

Gumtree users can list their items for free, with the option of paying for a featured advert if they wish. There is also a service called Gumtree Media, designed for use by business customers who wish to have multiple listings, such as car dealers, employers and property companies.
