PicksfromthePaddock.co.uk started life as our Managing Director’s (Rory) small, personal horse racing blog where he would write his own thoughts about current racing news and give his own selections.
What started as a hobby for Rory, a hobby where he had a small social media following of around 30 people and website views around the same number, is now a fully thriving online business with a great presence in the UK horse racing community.
A site that now has a team of writers who provide horse racing previews, tips and news articles on a daily basis.
The site has also had their content published on various websites and also in various newspapers across the UK.
What once was a small social media following is now in excess of 23,000 (More than the BHA, Racing Ahead Magazine, Racing Plus Newspaper, OLBG, Timeform and many more.)
The site continues to grow with various different features being added to the site as well as a rapidly growing following and readership.
The website has had some great exposure with links to different organisations, this includes the likes of At The Races (mentioned on numerous occasions on their live news show) OLBG.com (Sponsors of The Mares Race at The Cheltenham Festival) Features in Racing Ahead Magazine and work with Racing FM (Mentions on their live radio station) and this exposure along with various different ventures continues today.
Another big part of our business and something that helps us in gaining further exposure is the work that we do with various Newspapers across the UK. This can take the form of regular daily articles, weekly articles or ad-hoc features. The newspapers we have written for include the following:
. The Lancashire Evening Post
. The Leicester Mercury
. The Wakefield Express
. The Batley And Birstal News
. The Spenborough Guardian
. The Huddersfield Daily Examiner
. The Glossop Chronicle
. The Dorset Echo
. The Border Telegraph
(These newspapers have also featured us on their websites with links to ours.)
The readership these newspapers receive in total is in excess of 500,000 homes.
As you will agree this is a great platform for our website.
