Pet business idea - is this where your passion is? Think this might be a terrific "fit" for you? Well, let's explore the reasons you may be right!
There are so many terrific fury friends -- "Fido" and "Whiskers" that need a loving helpmate in addition to their own family.
. . . And let's don't forget "Goldie" who swims around all day but still needs to be fed and have her aquarium cleaned periodically!
There are also horses, bunnies, birds, and reptiles -- all requiring some type of attention while their owners are at work or too busy to provide the appropriate care for them.
If you've looked at the trends, they are definitely in your favor as the sales for pet products/service continue to climb.
What's amazing to me is the fact that the demand for qualified pet care givers and suppliers has never been greater.
I've discussed this with family and friends about the fact there is still a gap in finding someone who we trust to help us take care of our beloved pets and provide their needed supplies/services.
It's very hard to leave "Fido" and "Whiskers" and travel out-of-town when there is such a HUGE uncertainty about how they will be treated while we're gone?? Someone we can truly trust!
. . . This fact is truly remarkable to me since there are so many pet businesses in the market, but many seem to 'miss the point'.
I'm not sure why this is, but it's a great opportunity for you to market your services and build a relationship of trust so Ma and Pa feel they are providing the most positive life experiences for their furry friends.
If you're a pet lover and understand the quality care/services needed for pets, this can truly be your niche -- bring your quality care and interest in animals (and their families) to your business and solve this problem for your clients.
In order to build these relationships with your clients and increase your revenues, you may want to consider developing your own mobile apps or pointing them towards some of the new mobile apps or expand to web-based services.
There owners will thank you for this since it gives them peace of mind to leave their pet with someone they trust -- YOU!
