“We are moving into the forefront of pet parenting in the digital age and connecting with our consumers via social and mobile marketing,” said Mark E. Johnson, Vice President of Innovation, Central Garden & Pet. “Pet parents can connect with Nylabone and fellow dog lovers on their favorite social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google+. They can share videos and photos of their dogs enjoying Nylabone products with a simple click of a button.”
The new Nylabone mobile website offers real-time assistance to pet parents, whether they are out shopping, running errands, or walking their pet. With a smartphone or other web-enabled mobile device, pet parents can use features to help them select the right Nylabone products for their dog, locate a pet store or dog park in their area, obtain solutions to common dog problems, and stay informed about Nylabone’s latest special offers and sweepstakes.
With the launch of its mobile website, Nylabone has become the go-to resource for pet owners, no matter where they are or what they need. Many pet parents don’t know that they can solve health and behavioral problems with simple solutions, such as providing proper chew toys, traveling to the dog park, or substituting current treats for healthier ones. Nylabone’s mobile website provides the answers to these issues and more. Best of all, the site can be accessed in real time, as the problem is occurring, or when a customer is in a store trying to find a product to solve the problem.
In the future, Nylabone will be adding QR codes to its products and shelf advertisements, making it even easier for consumers to access product information and special offers. Of course, all of this information will still be available on Nylabone’s regular website for consumers who prefer not to use mobile devices.
