Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) July 04, 2011
Found at http://www.USAPetCONNECT.com, the online service gives pets and their humans a one-stop resource for everything pet-related. Unlike most national pet websites that dedicate a single page to each state, USAPetCONNECT dedicates an entire website to pet lovers in all 50 US States.
“The team at USAPetCONNECT chose the 4th of July as the official re-launch date of our newly designed 50 State Network because it’s a proud patriotic holiday that lends itself to celebration as well as future annual events,” said Andrea Barrett, president of Marketing & Sales
As with most successful enterprises, USAPetCONNECT was created to fulfill a need, a passion and the desire to be of service. After years of helping businesses throughout the US and Canada succeed with their online marketing, the three founders decided to develop an online business where they could combine their passion for pets, their understanding of pet lovers and their business and marketing knowledge. Today, they manage “Best in Show” Pet Lover Resource Sites designed to be the simplest, most affordable way for a pet-related business or professional to connect with the growing numbers of online pet loving consumers.
“The new sites were designed to give pet lovers an easy way to find top pet-related services, watch a video, read informative articles, locate a dog park, give to a charity or find their forever friend, all on one easy-to-navigate website. Visitors on any state site can now search for local pet services or professionals by their city or zip code,” said Michael Bunton, president of Technology & Development
Today pets are part of the family, and when a pet parent needs to care for their loved one they want to know they are getting the very best products and services available. Now on any USAPetCONNECT state site a busy pet parent can find a local animal hospital, pet sitting or dog grooming professional, dog training, dog daycares or dog boarding kennel. Even services like carpet cleaning, pet containment and fencing, dog doors, pet waste removal, aquarium services, bird supplies and pet transportation all on one site. Plus visitors can find their forever friend through a local humane society, SPCA, animal shelter or Petfinder. Once they find that new puppy or kitty visitors will be able to locate pet shops and pet supply stores nearby for everything they will need for that new addition to the family. Visitors can even download a helpful list of Dog Names and Cat Names right from the Resources Page.
More and more pet parents are opting to take the furry ones along on vacation, so all USAPetCONNECT state sites give visitors an easy way to find pet friendly accommodations nationwide. Traveling pet owners can also shop for a reputable pet insurance plan in case of an unfortunate accident away from home. Visitors will find helpful emergency information as well as animal rescue and shelter resources. And the best part is USAPetCONNECT gives back to the community by partnering with local humane societies and rescue groups to build relationships, awareness and consumer interaction.
The network has also been getting attention from state and national associations as well as pet industry franchises, chains and dealer groups. “As the only network of 50 State Pet Resource Sites, USAPetCONNECT has a unique competitive advantage that gives industry groups and national advertisers a powerful new marketing channel,” says Steven Bailey, president of Sales & Operations
There are over 10 billion online searches conducted each month in the USA, and about 40% of those searches are for local services, businesses, and products. The days of using the dusty old telephone book to find local businesses are over. Today, most consumers search for local services on their computer or from a mobile device. All 50 of the USAPetCONNECT sites are mobile friendly and each state site such as http://www.ColoradoPetCONNECT.com gives users quick easy access to products and services right in their local area.
When asked why USAPetCONNECT decided to upgrade its 50-Site Network, Bailey replied, “We wanted to offer more and the timing seemed right with pet ownership is at its highest level in two decades and pet industry spending expected to exceed $50 Billion this year. Plus, over 74% of U.S. households now use the Internet when shopping for products and services. So, we took this opportunity to upgrade the sites and further our brand as America’s #1 Network of Pet Lover Resource Sites.”
Founded in 2009 USAPetCONNECT manages a national network of “Best in Show” Pet Lover Resource Sites designed to be the simplest, most affordable way for a pet-related business or service to CONNECT with the growing numbers of online pet loving consumers. Learn more at: http://www.USAPetCONNECT.com
