Can pets really bring you money?

During the recent health crisis, many people started owning pets for happiness and comfort. In fact, with so many pets finding new homes, there was a big increase in the need for pet supplies.

In the US, more than 66% households have dogs, followed by cats and fish.

Since these pets are considered part of the family, owners spend a lot on their well-being, from toys to special care items. Recognizing this demand, the Amazon store, LMVVC, stepped in and flourished.

💡 Fact: The pet care business is booming globally and continues to grow each year, indicating a consistent demand for pet products.

Yet, the pet business can not only bring you money, but also happiness – you can easily make a difference with a pet business making pet and pet owners’ lives more comfortable.

The big chance with pet products

When we think of pets, we think of the cute sounds they make and their happy actions. The fact is – they’re not just animals; they’re our family.

Buying things for them is not just spending money, it’s making them happy. So, when thinking about an online shop, why not pick something people love?

So why start a pet business?

  • People everywhere love pets

Whether you’re in a big city or a quiet place, everyone loves pets. So, there’s a big market everywhere.

  • So many products

There are many items for pets to sell. There’s special pet clothes, cameras for pets, and even pet designs for people’s things. This means you can sell to different people with different likes. Customers want sellers to meet their needs. This is what really matters.

  • Always needed

Pets will always need things. Clothes and accessories always get worn down, and they always want new toys. When people buy once, they might come back to buy again. It’s a chance to build a loyal customer base around your business.

  • Buying with feelings

Have you ever heard about impulse purchases? The point is, when people see a cute toy or nice bed for their pet, they might buy it right away. If they think it will make their pet happy, they’ll want to get it.

  • Pet lovers community

When you sell pet items, you join a group of pet lovers. They like to talk and share about their pets. With the right way to talk to them, they might tell their friends about your store. It’s a word of mouth marketing that is free for you, but it often brings more significant results.

  • Pet stars on social media

Some pets are famous online. Working with them can make more people see your store. Since pet owners spend lots of time surfing social media, this is your big ticket to endless sales.

  • Eco-friendly trend

Many people want green and natural items for their pets. This is a special market that can be very loyal. Is it challenging to sell eco-friendly stuff in the USA? No big deal, actually – Sellvia is happy to help you with that!

Given all these, starting a pet store might be a good idea.

With Sellvia to help, even absolute novices can join this big market. You just need a good idea, to learn a bit, and to love pets! Is that really possible? LMVVC has already proven that!

I bought a pet store 6 months ago with over 300 products. I advertised on Facebook & got over 500 clicks. I bought the SEO marketing package and have not had one single sale yet… I have sent my store to 1000’s of people. What am I doing wrong? Help! PetAllure.shop
Disappointing

The SEO package marketing requires some patience as it is one of the most stable but slowest ways to drive the traffic – the result may take a few months before the traffic will grow – and will turn into sales.
In comparison ads on FB can bring sales much faster, what campaign have you used? Was it engagement or conversion? and for how long have you advertised – 500 clicks is hard to estimate when it is not clear whether the campaign lasted six months (then it is very little and it was definitely worth trying a different ad or a product) or a few days, (then it might require a bit more time to see whether it is worth to continue to get some of the visitors turn into customers).
