As a dog daycare or grooming business owner, you have enough going on every day. You start your morning by greeting customers as they drop off their furry friends for the day. As more customers begin to filter in and out, you spend the afternoon working with employees and watching over the pets in your care. You finish off the day by checking out your last customers, sending home your employees, and cleaning up your facility.
With your busy schedule, it’s no wonder that marketing your business might often take a backseat to these more pressing concerns. After all, you’re watching over man’s best friend — that’s a pretty important job.
But marketing your business is essential to grow your profits and establish yourself as a staple of the pet world in your community. If you’re looking to ramp up your marketing efforts, Gingr’s marketing tools might be perfect for you. We’re committed to designing software that’s user-friendly, effective, and organized for dedicated pet-care professionals like you.
Connect with customers using Gingr’s marketing tools
Your relationships with customers are extremely important. Not only do you want to keep customers engaged so that you can grow your business, but because you’re also taking care of their favorite pets, it’s essential that you’re able to easily contact them.
Fortunately, Gingr’s pet business software allows you to access a full suite of built-in email and SMS marketing tools. Using Gingr’s marketing features, you can:
- Segment customers into groups based on shared characteristics: By categorizing your customers into unique groups, you can be sure you’re only sending the most relevant information that will likely lead to the most engagement. For example, you could create a group for disengaged customers to remind them of your services.
- Send updates and reminders so no one misses an appointment: Do you have a customer who always seems to miss their appointment? Gingr’s marketing tools give you the option to send reminders, which can help maintain the loyalty of your current customers and ensure that they don’t forget appointments. Customers also appreciate this attention to detail because it shows you value their business.
- Use custom email templates to engage clients: With concise and effective email communications, you can send important updates about your business directly to your customers. Not sure where to start? This video can show you what the perfect email might look like.

Gingr’s SMS marketing feature allows you to send mass messages to alert customers to discounts, deals, and facility updates, all of which will ensure that your marketing is keeping up with an increasingly digital world.
Gingr’s marketing tools make it easy for you to continue promoting your business without sacrificing half of your day. Now, you can fit marketing into your daily routine while still leaving enough time to do what you love.
