Four Tips For Pet Influencers To Succeed in 2023

A new year is here and that means it’s time to plan and execute your 2023 strategy! We wanted to share our four tips for pet influencers in 2023.

 

Industry Numbers

The creator economy has grown exponentially. Since 2020, we have seen 165+ Million new creators. With more influencers than ever before, the influencer marketing industry is only going to continue growing in 2023. Globally, the influencer marketing industry was worth $16.4B in 2022—about an 18.1% increase from 2021. 

 

Consumers have been preferring authentic content, and this is only becoming truer. Audiences truly prefer to see influencers promoting products they believe in and use. In fact, 83% of users were influenced to purchase products because of trending content. 

 

Tips For Success

As seen in the economy and the above numbers, you may see differences in the industry from the past years. So, we want to give you these four for pet influencers to succeed in 2023..

 

1. Have a plan. A good idea is just that: an idea. But if you don’t know how to execute it, all of your hard work will be for nothing. Reach out to the Pets on Q team for assistance on your 2023 campaign plan.

 

2. Know your niche. If the market is saturated with influencers who are all trying to do the same thing as you, then you need to be different in some way so that consumers can find value in your product or service.

 

3. Think out your content to benefit your followers and make sure they feel like they’re getting something valuable out of their experience with you rather than just buying a product or service because it’s trendy at the moment.

 

4. Remember who your target audience really is! It’s easy to forget who you’re actually trying to connect with when you get caught up in trends or other influencers’ successes; however, if they aren’t interested in what you have to offer them then there’s no point in trying anyway!

Pets on Q started as a management company, but now we have shifted gears. We are no longer focusing on exclusive management. This means we can work with even more influencers and bring them access to more opportunities! We want to be sure that all influencers in the pet space have the chance to see what we have to offer!

 

Booking Platform

 

So, to kick things off, we have taken many years of experience and poured all we know into the brand-new Pets on Q Booking Platform!  We created this with pet influencers in mind, to give them a way to partner with more brands and make more money. 

 

Pets on Q started out because our founder Colleen wanted to change an industry. Now she has not only changed an industry, but revolutionized pet influencer marketing with the launch of this platform.

 

It is the only platform in the world with patent pending technology to help brands and pet influencers pair up on paid collaborations. The platform is faster and more efficient, taking out the guesswork on all sides.

 

With the Pets on Q proprietary algorithm, brands will see valuations based on quality follower count and engagement, not inflated numbers. And influencers will be able to negotiate rates and details with brands with confidence and ease.

 

Best of all, Pets on Q is not exclusive, so all pet influencers can have a manager or agent (or both) and still work with us, book campaigns and make money working through the Pets on Q Booking Platform!

5 tips when creating your own merchandise

Sometimes it can be easy to get tunnel vision and only think about how you enjoy the product and lose track of what your fans want, here are 5 tips for you to keep in mind when creating your new merchandise…

 

1. Give back to the community

Is there a particular rescue or good cause that you care about? Your fans love seeing that side of you, and seeing that your merchandise is donating some of its profits to a good cause can help entice them to pick up some product.

 

2. Your product doesn’t need to be your animal

 You have an amazing animal that is the cutest thing in the world, but if you were to look in your closet, how many animal shirts do you have that are someone else’s pet? Think about adding a fun/cute catchphrase, a motivational line or a generic breed based or rescue based shirt so it appeals to a larger audience

 

3. Make sure you don’t overcharge for your product

Who doesn’t love making money? We all want to make as much money as possible, but when was the last time you spent $30 or $40 on a t-shirt? Bonfire has an excellent price suggestion tool to help recommend a fair price for your product, and as tempting as it is to bump up the price keep in mind how much you’d be willing to spend on that product (if it wasn’t your pet).

 

4. There are more options to choose from than a T-shirt

Sometimes you have an amazing design but it might look a little weird on a shirt. Luckily with Bonfire they have many different options for what you can sell your merchandise on. From Mugs to Hats and Masks, there are many different ways to sell your product.

 

5. Size doesn’t always matter

Who says that your design needs to be as big as possible on the shirt? Sometimes smaller is better depending on the logo or catchphrase you want to use.

 

We hope you enjoyed these little tips to keep in mind when creating your merchandise.

 

Pets on Q has other methods of getting your very own merchandise made. We have some new friends who can make your very own animal plushie to sell to your fans! If you are interested fill out the form HERE and we’ll get in touch

 

Have a great day, and let us know if you have any questions!

Here is our December Holiday Guide to help inspire your content creation!

Happy Holidays, everyone!

 

Wherever you are, and however you celebrate, we hope that this season is wonderful for you all! We have had an unprecedented year here at Pets on Q, and we are so grateful for every single person and animal that we have had the pleasure of working with! Our reality series, Pet Stars, premiered on Netflix and Colleen and I got to be guests on many different shows and tell the world about all that we do.

 

It was a whirlwind, and the business didn’t stop! Our team grew with new employees, new talent and new brands, and we hit record numbers in sales and launched our online booking platform. We couldn’t do any of these things without the support of our community and the amazing business of animals in social media and entertainment, we are so proud of everyone and so grateful for everything. THANK YOU!

 

This month join us in celebrating all things feline for National Cat Lover’s Month! Now is a great time to be sure your cat has everything it needs to thrive. This includes proper healthcare and checkups, proper dental care, the right diet and plenty of toys and things to scratch. According to American Humane, cat overpopulation remains an issue, and more than three million cats enter U.S. animal shelters each year. Cats also have higher euthanasia rates than dogs, and approximately 850,000 cats are euthanized each year because they can’t find their forever homes.

 

So, this National Cat Lover’s Month, if you can, open your heart and adopt a cat in need from your local animal shelter. It is amazing to save a life! If you already have a cat, make sure you spend lots of quality time with them and that all their health and dietary needs are up to date and the best they can be. To observe National Cat Lover’s Month and make a different kind of impact, please consider donating money, goods or time to a local animal shelter. They can always use the extra support and a little goes a long way in the world of animal rescue.
