Equine Marketing 101: Part 1 - Perception of Market Value

There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words, and no statement rings truer in the tough equine market. A photograph can mean the difference between grabbing a potential client’s attention to having them pass over the horse completely. With online equine marketing sites and social media at the forefront of selling a horse, it may be asked why so many of the online advertisements seen every day by thousands of potential buyers are downright terrible.
