Leboncoin.fr was launched in France in April 2006 and was Schibsted Media Groups second rollout of the Swedish Blocket concept in Southern Europe. Leboncoin.fr is by far the leading online classifieds website in France, and among the 10 most visited web sites in France overall.
“I started working for Leboncoin in 2009, early in the adventure. Today we have 900.000 new ads every day and 7 million unique visitors per day. It is a company growing fast. 300 people are working in the company, and we will be hiring 100 more this year.”
“It is important not to focus on what used to be. We always have to change and adapt.”
“To keep our users engaged we have to listen. Every day we get feedback. Our users are our roadmap. The key is to listen and always try to improve ourselves.”
“The next step for Schibsted is to build a strong relationship with the companies around the world. We all have a lot of skills and ideas that it is important to share with each other.”
