Simple Image Design for Dog Walkers

Are you trying to make your Dog Walking business stand out online?

Why should you spend time designing graphics in the first place?

Pets (and dogs in particular) drive a disproportionate amount of social media clicks. We all click on dog and cat photos and memes on a daily basis. But not all of us making a living from serving those animals. So to stand out from all those cute photos of dogs and owners while you're trying to run a business, it's important that you spend time curating a professional and trust worth brand online. Here are some ways you should be using graphics online to make your Dog Walking business stand out:

Showcase some recent walks you've taken dogs on, ideally including happy dogs 😉
Promote upcoming discounts (eg. "Don't worry about your dog on Valentine's Day!")
Advertise your business as a professional Dog Walking service by including your branding and/or logo on all your posts
Set yourself apart from other Dog Walkers by designing collages of the different sizes of dogs you walk

Design your first image in minutes!

We know working as a Dog Walker isn't as simple as people would have you believe. You need to deal with accounting, book keeping, keeping track of specific demands of your clients, organizing your keys, etc. These kinds of things add up super-quick.

But that's also why we think Stencil is useful for Dog Walkers: because we designed it to be faster than all the alternatives out there. So that you can design your images and graphics for your social media accounts or website, and then get on with your day.

And don't forget about the millions of icons available

Why should you spend time designing marketing images?

To put it bluntly: cute puppy photos and selfies sell! We all click on them. But there's a difference between a cute photo or image you find online, and one on a curated, professionally branded Dog Walkers Social Media accounts. Seeing a logo in the bottom-right, along with Call-to-Action (eg. "Reserve your Dog's Walk Today"), makes a big difference when it comes to attracting new clients.

Anyone who has a pet can attest to spending a lot of time liking (and following) other dog accounts and profiles. And because of this, competing for business has become a very digital pursuit. People are finding their Dog Walkers through photos their friends have liked. And so it's important you're one of those people.

And while we know how frustrating it can be to add another thing to your list of tasks, we designed Stencil to make that as easy as possible. You don't need to worry about details like the perfect sized image for each social network. We've taken care of that for you.

3 image ideas for Dog Walkers

Here are 3 practical ways Stencil can help you with your Dog Walking business:

1

Advertise discounted rates for special occasions

There's always an upcoming event (eg. Christmas, July 4th, Halloween, and even a Dog Birthdays). Use these opportunities to post a professionally branded photo of a recent dog walk to solicit new incoming leads.

2

Promote long walks you've recently taken dogs on

If you're trying to sell longer dog walks, you can use Stencil to specific promote recent long walks (eg. 1 hour plus) you've taken. This helps remind clients and potential clients that longer walks are available.

3

Share cute photos of the new dogs you've added to your team (owner approval required)

Featuring a new dog or puppy that's been added to your team is a good way to make the owner/new client feel important. Again: branding is super important here, so make sure you include your logo or Company Name. And also important: make sure the owner has signed off on this!

Share Previews

Dogs on Social Media = 👀

We could go into the psychology of the world being overwhelming, and everyone simply wanting an escape, but we'll leave that for others to discuss. Dogs and puppies on social media get likes and views. It's just a fact. And while we can't give you exact numbers, I'm sure we all know this.

So after you've finished designing one of your images, Stencil helps you post to your Social Media channels in one click (without ever leaving the app).
