Gumtree launch three new UK TV ads

No primary category set

Gumtree are back in the TV ads market. They’ve launched three new ads yesterday plugging the three core areas of the classified ads site – Jobs, Motors and goods for sale.

The ads are all about how easy it is to bring people together to trade on Gumtree and I hear that the nationwide campaign might be costing them as much as a million £s, so what do you think of them – Have you seen them on TV yet and would they prompt you to log on to Gumtree?

  1. I haven’t seen the ads, but Gumtree must be the most known but never mentioned platform ever. If you mention it, people seem to know about it, otherwise in never gets a look-in especially in business to business coversation. It can be astonishlingly succesfull in shifting large items locally – I used it to sell an old garden shed and greenhouse. Both sold in a matter of hours, the buyers cheerfully dismantling and removing them. Nice to have someone pay you to remove your junk!

  2. For selling and buying household items locally for collection and pick up Gumtree is the way to go.

  3. For selling personal stuff I’m using Gumtree much more than ebay these days. To me its much easier to sell without any hassle. I’ve even started listing some Catering Equipment on Gumtree with surprising results.

  4. Personally, I have found that the new emerging local markets on facebook are beginning to replace such platforms as gumtree, classifieds in papers and ads in the local shops. Local communities trading and offering services free of hassle and charges.

  5. What i don’t get is why ebay who own gumtree promote it to shift things for free what ebay could charge for.

    Or am I missing something
