Launched in December of 2009, Dogwalker.com received its 700th listing recently. The website was created to assist thousands of dog owners with finding local dog walking services by searching via city, neighborhood, or zip code. Their related websites include DogPark.com, a guide to dog parks in the United States and Canada, and DogGroomers.com, which assists in finding local dog groomers.
The founder of DogWalker.com, Elliot Silver, credits the company’s marketing strategy with its growth and success. In addition to the information provided to visitors of the website, directory advertisers are able to engage with a channel with which to grow their business.
“I think the growing number of dog walking service listings is a testament to the fact that DogWalker.com helps dog walkers meet new clients. I will continue to work hard to make people aware of the site to help them connect with local dog walking services,” Silver reported.
DogWalker.com has been featured on a variety of websites since its inception, including MSN, Fox Business, Yahoo! Finance, and Money on the Today Show. The top ten cities providing website inquiries to DogWalker.com are San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston and Phoenix.
Techniques used by Silver in success of the website are attributed to search engine marketing strategy, focused advertising, networking with pet-oriented service providers, and mentions on both mainstream and online media.
Visitors to the site will find dog walkers but also how to find them, what to pay and tip them, how to become a dog walker, and further information about the profession as a whole.
