Marketing to pet owners with “how-to” articles made easy
By David Tomen for PetCopywriter.com
Sheri is a master at marketing to pet owners. She loves animals. Caring for pets since she was a young girl fostered a passion that led to a career as a veterinarian.
Sheri soon found that sharing her know-how was a great way to build her business. Pet owners trusted her and shared their experience with friends. And her veterinary clinic’s revenues grew exponentially every year since she opened her doors.
Sheri taught Lori, her receptionist and resident webmaster, the easiest way to come up with “how-to” articles. During the week, her staff would make note of customer questions and problems. Lori then selected the best of the lot and wrote a “how-to” article for each week’s blog post.
Lori came up with some of her own methods for generating ideas for blog posts, too. You can easily do this for your practice as well.
If you use the pet web content ideas here, you’ll easily be able to write magnetic “how-to” articles that bring in more traffic to your website and business.
