Many of the examples and action steps in the Challenge are directed toward pet sitters and dog walkers, but most are transferable to all service-based pet business owners.

This webinar is for you if:

  • You don't want to think about your social media and yet, it’s on your mind more often than you'd like to admit.
  • You may not know what you're doing when it comes to social media marketing - or even if what you are doing is working.
  • You throw something up on your social media and see if you get some likes and cross your fingers hoping it gets your business out there in front of your ideal clients.

You may realize this approach to social media hasn't been working… for you or your business.

Increased competition and clutter on social media has caused the entire landscape to change drastically for anyone using it to market their business.

Social media is crucial for attracting clients. So, why not make it fun and effective again? And drive sales to your services and increase website clicks while you’re at it!

In this webinar, guest speaker Josh Martin, Digital Marketing Director at Denver Marketing Solutions will outline exactly how to use Google Ads and pay-per-click ads in your pet business to gain more clients. After learning from the information in this webinar you will be able to easily set up your own Google Ads and pay-per-click ad campaign!

Pay-per-click is the most well-known and established form of digital marketing. You are likely familiar with seeing these types of ads at the top of Google.com. Many pet business owners, especially those who live in heavily populated towns and cities, find that to get to the top of the search engines, they absolutely must utilize Google Ads and pay-per-click campaigns.

In addition to pay-per-click advertising, you will learn the fundamentals of Image advertising through a system called, “remarketing”. Remarketing allows you to show image-based ads to well-qualified people. For example, you could use remarketing to choose to only show ads to pet owners near you. These can help you not waste time on less-fruitful marketing and enable you to make your marketing dollars work for you!

Pet service providers are coming out of uncharted waters as clients have changed their buying behaviors in ways the pet industry has never seen before. Even pet business owners who have skillfully marketed online before will gain a lot of value from exploring the proven marketing methods of Google Ads and pay-per-click advertising. To gain new clients, pet service providers must explore new marketing methods, and Google Ads and pay-per-click ads can help you turn potential clients into actual clients in new ways.
