Welcome to another edition of The Affiliate Buzz, where affiliate marketers have been coming to be inspired, informed and motivated to succeed since 2003. Arlene is away this week, but James is here to talk cats, dogs and dollars with John Kosloskey, whose pet industry affiliate programs at Raw Paws offers publishers the opportunity to get in on the $62.7 billion pet industry.
Recap of ShareASale ThinkTank 2016
Like James, John is freshly returned from a visit to Chicago, where he attended the ShareASale ThinkTank 2016. What’s that, you ask? It’s an exclusive event, in a grand hotel, where top-level merchants and top performing affiliates get to know each other. In fact, the event’s organizer describes his job as, “Finding the top affiliates, putting them in a room with the top merchants and buying beer.”
It may sound like a frat party, but it’s actually a great networking opportunity. John testifies to how great it was, for him as a merchant, to meet affiliates that really care.
Fat Cats and Grand-dogs
And speaking of really caring, if there’s a four-legged friend in your life that you really care about, you’re not alone. Two out of every three American households have a pet and the pet industry generates $62.7 billion per year. Twenty-four billion of that is in pet food, pet treats and chews.
Pets can become members of our families. James talks about his grand-dogs and almost sounds like he enjoys them as much as his grandkids.
Okay, so we love our pets and our pets have to eat, but why should it be raw? Because that’s what’s natural. Cats and dogs are carnivores. Their “ancestral food source” was the prey they hunted. Cooking food can deplete its nutritional value. Raw Paws offers all natural, free of additives food for your pet, designed to mimic the 80:10:10 ratio (meat, organs, bone) that they would get in nature. Pet parents see the results in the health of their pets. In fact, a raw food diet could be just what the doctor ordered for those two overweight kitties James and Arlene are fostering.
So, we want healthier food for our furry friends. But Raw Paws doesn’t just sell food to sustain your pet. They know that we also want to be able to give edible rewards, to out presents for our pets under the Christmas tree, in short- to offer treats. So Raw Paws also makes raw meat based treats and chews. That ought to make someone’s tail wag.
