2015 is upon us, and it has been a mammoth year for Preloved with community events, a big birthday, and a whole site makeover. To celebrate the new year, we thought we would share our top 5 moments from 2014!
5. The Hut Group take over Preloved.
In March 2014 we bought Preloved. We now have over 5,500,000 members and110,000,000 monthly page views! In this time we have seen our Facebook page grow toover 150,000 fans and have had over 2.2 million adverts since January!
4. National Second Hand Day
As you already know, Preloved is all about the joy of Second Hand, and on April the 27th, Preloved brought the community together to celebrate National Second Hand Day. We offered half price memberships, ran competitions and asked the community about their Preloved experiences with recycling, upcycling and buying and selling second hand!
3. The Preloved Vintage Fair
Preloved loves all things vintage, and so do many Preloved members, so we decided to hold our very own Vintage fair in Manchesters Northern Quarter at the Night & Day Cafe. The event took place on the 29th September and saw over 300 people attend to enjoy browsing the vintage stalls, listening to the music and getting their hair styled in Vintage rolls. You can see the full photo album here.
2. Preloved Turns Sweet Sixteen
Preloved celebrated it’s 16th birthday this year. Through it’s lifetime, Preloved has grown to be the second largest classifed ad site in the UK, and with a thriving community, we’re still growing!
1. The Brand New Preloved
We’re sure that you have all noticed this, but on the first of December, Preloved launched it’s new and improved website. Our aim is to be the “most trusted local marketplace community for both buyers and sellers“, and we wanted to give you a cleaner, easier to use site to match! Here is some of the amazing feedback we’ve recieved.
“It looks great and easy to use.”
“Yes love it, very eye catching and easy to read. A big thumbs up from me!”
“Very clean, easy to navigate”
“Neat, subtle, and easy on the eye!”
It’s not too late to have your say! You can leave your feedback here.
What a year it has been, and here’s to an amazing 2015. We’re looking forward to spending the year with our Preloved community, with even more exciting updates, events and stories to share with you all!
Happy new year!
