If you’re like most pet owners, you love sharing photos and videos of your furry friend on social media. And there’s no shortage of fun, engaging ways to do that. But if you’re looking for fresh ideas to keep your Facebook page lively and exciting, here are five interactive pet posts to try which can help drive followers to your page and keep them engaged.
1. Host a photo contest
One of the most popular ways to engage followers on Facebook is to hold a photo contest. Ask pet owners to submit their best photos of their furry friend in action for a chance to win a prize. You could even award bonus points for creative or funny entries for contests even involving dog art.
Be sure to set some guidelines for the contest, such as requiring all photos to be of pets in a safe environment, and make sure you promote the contest ahead of time, so people have time to enter.
2. Share pet tips and advice
Your followers rely on you for information about taking care of their pets, so why not share some tips and advice? You could post articles, videos, or infographics with tips on topics like how to potty train a puppy, how to stop a dog from barking, or choosing the right pet for your family.
Showing that you’re an authority on pet care will help build trust with your followers and could lead to them turning to you for advice in the future.
3. Run a contest to name a pet
Another fun way to engage followers is to hold a contest to name a pet. This could be a contest for a new addition to the family or even for an adoptable pet up for adoption.
Be sure to come up with some creative rules, like requiring entrants to submit a photo of their pet along with their name suggests. And, as always, promote the contest ahead of time, so people have time to enter.
4. Ask for pet photos and stories
People love sharing photos and stories of their pets, so why not ask your followers to submit theirs? You could create a weekly or monthly feature where you share a roundup of the best pet photos and stories from your followers.
Not only will this keep your Facebook page fresh, but it will also give your followers a chance to see their photos and stories featured on your page.
5. Share funny pet videos
Everyone loves a good funny pet video, so why not share some on your Facebook page? You could compile a weekly or monthly video roundup of the funniest pet videos from around the internet or even solicit submissions from your followers. Either way, you’re sure to get some laughs and keep your followers coming back for more.
So there you have it, five fun and interactive pet posts to try on your Facebook page.
