Find a local pet professional with Pawedin!
Moving to a new place and needing a groomer? Out of town but the pup has a vet emergency? Ditch the search engine and head over to Pawedin!
What is Pawedin?
Pawedin is a mixture between Yelp and a pet social network, allowing owners to find other local pets, as well as the professionals they are using. Its uniqueness lies in its focus on pets, pet owners, and pet professionals..
Unlike Yelp, however, Pawedin is tailored to pets and pets only, and you get the added bonus of being able to choose based on the recommendations of people whose pets are similar to yours, which may mean that you end up at a vet that has more experience treating giant breed dogs (any Great Dane owners out there?), or a doggie daycare where you can bring your husky to play with other dogs just like him! It can really help pet parents to make more informed decisions on where to take their pet!
Many pet professionals (groomers, veterinarians, daycare owners, even pet photographers!) are business owners, and passionate about animals, but not everyone has the time or know-how to be an effective marketer. PawedIn can help! If you’re a pet professional, every connection you get to your business on PawedIn’s platform can give you a boost, through PawedIn’s internal recommendations, or through Search Engine Optimization. All you have to do is encourage your clients to create an account and link to your business.
So How did Pawedin Come to Be?
The idea comes from when owner Jack Farrell and his girlfriend moved to Atlanta with their husky Vixen. Jack says: “When my girlfriend and I moved to Atlanta with our dog we have no idea what vet or what daycare place we should take her to. It just so happened that our second night in Atlanta, Vixen began vomiting uncontrollably. Again, we had no idea where to take her. We had to look on Facebook, Yelp, Nextdoor, and other outlets - but none of them seemed to really provide the level of information we wanted or needed.”
After finding that no solution to this problem existed, Jack started searching to see how other industries solved this problem. He came across Porch.com, a network for home improvement, loved what he saw, and set out on development of a similar solution for pets.
3 months later, Pawedin was live, and they haven't looked back since!
Should I Use Pawedin?
Well of course! "We’ve continued to receive feedback about how excited people are they get to show off their pets online," says Jack when asked about the most positive feedback they've received. "Other than a person’s children, there’s nothing people like to show off more than their pets," and Pawedin would love to be the place you do it.
