Step one - Share your pet’s story

Through this platform you can reach a diverse audience of pet lovers from all backgrounds. That is why this first step is critical when starting off your page.

Every pet is unique so tell your story and share what makes them worth that follow. This is your bridge to connect with your audience. 

Step two - Regular Content

Big brands are seeing the importance of pet influencers and are willing to invest. It is important to constantly post pictures or videos of your pet to continue the accounts growth without compromising quality, branding and safety. Dog parents must be mindful of not putting their pets in situations where they feel uncomfortable when creating content.

Pet insta-accounts are a space where people come to escape. Creating heartwarming post leaves the audience wanting more and ultimately becomes a loyal follower or a shared post that engages more effectively. Remember to have fun, enjoy the process because at the end of the day you’re creating memories of your pet you are going to hold forever.

    Love this post, very relevant and true to the millennial trend, myself included, on having an instagram account for our dogs. It creates a community locally and internationally to share ideas, recommendations, opportunities for brands and companies as well to expand and grow their brand and sales🥰
