Since the inception of social media, we have witnessed that influence comes in many shapes, sizes and species.
Studies have shown that consumers are “attracted to, and fascinated by animals’ and that ‘most people find animals captivating”, it explains why we spend a lot of time staring at these cuties.
On social media, a post by an animal creates 5 to 6 times more interactions than a one shared by a human.
Because pets provide a simply and truly storytelling with a high potential of feel good shareable content, they offer brands the opportunity to connect emotionally to a large audience.
Thanks to their neutral identity, pets can promote any product directly or indirectly if it’s related to their world (from pet accessories to ethical beauty products or environmental issues).
But working with animals requires special attention to ensure that they are respected and protected. Behind the promise of a great exposure, dishonest owners can neglect the welfare of the animal, these behaviors can bounce back on the image of the brand if communities are aware of it.
