If you’re a pet sitter, dog walker or doggie daycare business then you already have the trust of your existing clients, right?
As any business owner will tell you, gaining new clients is how you grow your business. But what about maximizing the value of your existing clients? Your clients already trust you to take care of Fluffy and Fido, so why not capitalize on this trust by upselling them pet foods that you recommend?
There are several pet food opportunities out there that you can easily add to your existing business. But before we name names, let me briefly explain a dirty little word that you may have heard from time to time that’s actually not as bad as you may think: network marketing.
Network marketing, commonly called Multi Level Marketing (MLM), involves not only selling a particular product or line of products (think Amway) but recruiting others to sell the same products and you get a percentage of what they sell. If you build a “downline” of salespeople under you, you get a percentage of their commission. It’s an effective way to earn an income by basically recruiting and training others to do what you do.
What does this have to do with pet food you ask?
For ten years I have been a sales rep for Flint River Ranch pet food. Now, while I can recruit others to sell the food and profit from their efforts, I focused more on selling the actual food and feeding it to my own dogs. I get paid a commission based on a sliding scale on the total volume I sell a month. And that includes the food I buy for my own pets! So I’m basically getting cash back for feeding my own dogs a Super Premium dog food that was rated as one of the Top Dry Dog Foods by the Whole Dog Journal!
While I’m first-hand familiar with Flint River Ranch, another dog food line that is equally top notch is the Healthy Pet Net opportunity which you can read about here. Because the key to success is to really believe in the product. It comes across in everything you communicate, especially if you “walk the walk” and feed it to your own dogs like I do.
