BROKERS & DEALERS ADVERTISING

The notion of creating a marketplace was where it all started for the Friday Media Group. Our Founder, Chris Kidger, wanted to sell his car in the 70s and quickly realised there wasn’t an easy way to advertise it to local people who may want to buy.

Chris and his wife subsequently launched a weekly printed sheet entitled Friday-Ad, and hand-delivered them around the Uckfield area, in East Sussex, UK. It quickly became a very popular service, with people enjoying the ability to be able to de-clutter their homes and make a bit of extra cash from their sales.

By 2005 we were printing over 1.1 million copies per week across 70 different editions, we even had 36 shops on High streets across the South East of England.

Truly at the heart of what we do as a group to this very day is much the same as what Chris was setting out to achieve some 40 years ago – connecting people, easily, to the very thing they are looking for.

As the years have passed, the Friday Media Group have set up and acquired 15 more classified websites but have focussed more on niche marketplaces in specific industries such as the equine and marine marketplaces. If you were looking specifically to buy a horse, boat or caravan for example, or equally, you’re looking to sell one,  our niche classifieds platforms cater for you in a safe, and ever improving, online environment.

The majority of our advertisers are private sellers, but a lot of our marketplaces are also made up of adverts from professional dealers or brokers. With many of our marketplace websites being market leaders, there’s no better place for these businesses to reach a considerable and highly targeted audience of potential customers.
