Today, there are tons of pets who’ve gained enough of a following on social media to earn the coveted title “pet influencer” and they can command tens of thousands of dollars creating content for brands.
Like most pet owners who adore their pets, they just can’t help but take a million photos of their pet. So, naturally, they start a special Instagram account just for their pet. After regularly posting content to their feed, it’s amazing how followers start to grow. Most owners, for example, had no expectations of it turning into anything. But pretty soon, pet brands start reaching out and sending them promotional items, treats, clothes, and eventually money to post content with their brand.
If you’re interested in how to become a pet influencer yourself, check out this blog post by Medium that breaks down just how to do it.
