The pet-loving community is huge, and that should come as no surprise since 67% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to nearly 85 million families. Whether they have a dog, cat, bird, fish, or something else, what they all have in common is that they can relate to other pet owners.

By sharing the activities you love to do with your own adorable pet, you can join the ranks of social media stars who have benefited from featuring their pets in their content. Show everything you’ve learned about being a pet owner, share tips and tricks you’ve learned along the way, and engage your growing audience with your unique personality.

Tell Stories About Your Pet

You might be wondering about how to get started as a pet influencer, and the simple solution is to share high-quality photos of your pet along with engaging stories of how you met your pet, what it was like to watch them grow up, and other fun things you’ve done up until now.

As your influence grows, you’ll be able to take your followers along with you on your journey, sharing tips about training, caring for your pet on a daily basis, and any fun toys or activities your pet enjoys. If you’re short on ideas, the social media pet community is gigantic, and you can simply learn from others to create your own special content.

Discuss Your Favorite Famous Pets You’ve Discovered on Social Media

The not-so-secret key to social media stardom lies in your ability to network with others on the platform. As you research the pet niche on your favorite social media sites, you’ll quickly develop a taste for specific pet influencers that resonate with you.

Then, you can share with your audience about how you also appreciate other influencers’ pictures and stories and talking about the famous pets that you find interesting. This will create an additional layer of bonding between you and your audience as you discuss the things you love about your favorite animals with the people who are interested in what you have to say.

Although there are many niches to choose from when you’re deciding to become a social media influencer, few are as fun or captivating as enjoying the adventure with your favorite pet.
