Recommendations for Creating Purr-fect Content
1. Solidify retailers as trusted pet care experts
Ensuring that pets get the absolute best care and products is a top priority for pet owners, and your retailers want to be the first place those owners go when they need new supplies or advice! The majority of pet retailers responded that content focused on education – products, nutrition, behavior and pet care, would be helpful for their store.
Educational content builds trust and positions retailers as true pet experts, ready to help customers find the best fit for their animals.
2. ‘One time my dog…’ Encourage personal interactions
What is one thing all your customers and retailers have in common? They love their pets, of course! Help retailers get to know their customers through social channels.
Prompt customers to share their own pet photos – every pet owner loves to tell stories about their paw-some pet, and there is no better way to drive engagement on digital channels!
3. Get it on camera! Use video on social media
Did you know that videos shared on social media generate 12 times more shares than text and images combined? Many pet retailers said that one of their top social media goals is increasing customer interactions with posts.
Think about a video on nutrition, a product review, or which leashes dogs like the best. Don’t feel intimidated by creating new video content – these could be videos you’re already building for your national audiences.
4. Highlight hiss-terical pets
Create lighthearted content that is fun to share and drives customer likes, shares, and comments.
