Pet Blogging For Love & Money is on tour and you are invited to come along. In conjunction with Maggie Marton, I co-authored a book that is making its rounds on the official book tour! Summon the trumpets and toss the confetti!
The reason I wanted to write this book is to help pet lovers establish or grow a successful social media presence and/or blog, whether for the passion (love) or the dollars (money). In most cases, putting your pet online is a combination of love and money.
Since the book’s launch, I’ve encountered several frequently asked questions. Let me answer those questions, help guide you through the book tour, and how to enter to win a copy of the book! Two winners will be selected, one for the paperback version and one for the ebook version of Pet Blogging for Love & Money.
What Makes Pet Blogging For Love & Money Unique?
Ours is the most comprehensive book to focus entirely on the lucrative pet industry, and it goes far beyond a focus on influencer marketing. The strategy of Pet Blogging for Love & Money is to give readers the most comprehensive, up-to-date, action-oriented information needed to start and run a viral pet blog with accompanying social media presence.
Can Pet Business and Pet Rescues Learn From This Book?
A blog enables the business to connect on a personal level with customers and potential customers while helping present clients feel they can be trusted. Blogs with interesting content and social media posts that complement it are worth their weight in gold. Visitors to your blog may become customers. If you have online products or services, establishing trust in your business turns clicks into dollars. We take a deep dive into this in the book.
Good rescue groups and organizations do not get enough credit for the painstaking, gut-wrenching, heartfelt labor of love that goes into every effort in which they are involved. We are indirectly involved in pet rescue, have worked with animal shelters, and have counseled many pet rescues on the do’s and don’ts of establishing a blog and why.
Blogging is an inexpensive way for shelters and rescues to drive traffic to their site, attract prospective adopters, encourage donations, and remain relevant in Google’s ever-changing algorithm. Those first-page searches on “dog rescue” aren’t there by accident. Those are sites with a dedicated SEO strategy in place and, most likely, a successful blog
Can I Make Money Pet Blogging or With Social Media?
Yes, and diversification is the name of the game. By having multiple streams of income, you are not tethered to one income source or another. We outline a variety of ways to earn money from a pet blog, and these include affiliate networks, sponsorships, freelance writing, selling digital merchandise, writing and selling books, providing services for others, ad networks, and consulting services.
What About Growing My Social Media Accounts?
We cover a treasure trove of social media tactics. Let’s face it, pets mean big business, with some influencers able to charge in the thousands for a social media share on a hot platform like Instagram. There are social media calculators to help determine a worth. We encourage engagement over numbers, and we aren’t alone. Instagram and Facebook have begun hiding like counts to encourage authentic content and commentary. If you love pets as I do, then this is a perfect fit.
Best of all, the book is full of actionable tips that don’t require a tech background or a marketing degree.
