Summer is coming to an end and we are quickly approaching the Fall season. But what does this mean for you as a business owner? Well, it means the kids are going back to school, Labor Day is coming up, and there are numerous opportunities for you get new clients. However, they will never know you exist unless you BLOG or VIDEO – it is a necessity! I know that coming up with blog/video topics is difficult, so I’ve compiled a list of intriguing September pet sitting blog ideas that will help your website shine on Google!
4 September Pet Sitting Blog Or Video Ideas
1. Holidays – Labor Day!
Labor Day can mean two good things for you as a business owner.
- The kids are going back to school.
- People will be taking trips
Many people in your area might be trying to figure out what they are going to do with their dogs now that their kids will be gone all day. Why not answer their question by writing a blog or making a video? Discuss different pet care options where you live and make your business shine by showing (not telling) why your service is #1.
Also, consider writing about Labor Day. Write a blog or make a video about different events going on around town or ways people can celebrate with their families. It may get your clients’ thinking about taking a trip if they weren’t already, and sure enough, they’ll need you to watch the dog – score!
2. Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!
The weather is a great topic to blog or video about because it’s very broad and there are so many different directions you can go.
September can be pretty rainy, so why not blog or video about it? Ask and answer questions such as:
- Is it safe to walk a dog in the rain?
- Should dogs wear raincoats or rain boots when walking in the rain?
- Can dogs get sick walking in the rain?
The questions are endless and will engage your audience to click and find out the answer.
3. Autumn Activities
Changing of the seasons allows pet owners and their pets alike to engage in activities they might not have been able to do the season before.
For instance, make a list of the top hiking trails in your area with the most scenic view? Summer is too hot for hiking, plus the changing of the leaves makes great scenery. Write about it and get your audience thinking!
Or maybe blog/video about some of the best games to play with your dog outside during Autumn. Other topics could include a list of the top dog parks in the area, dog-friendly restaurants, or other pet-friendly events that may be going on around you.
4. Educational Pet Themes Of The Month
Did you know that every month has a specially designated theme that has to do with pets and animals? September is:
- Happy Healthy Cat Month
- National Disaster Preparedness Month
Take these topics and run with them. Write about helpful tips cat owners can use to ensure their cat is both happy and healthy. Or take the second topic and describe how dog owners and their dogs can be prepared in case of an emergency.
Additionally, there are certain pet oriented days in September that you can write time-sensitive blogs/videos about such as:
- National Hug Your Hound Day (2nd Sunday In September)
- Responsible Dog Ownership Day (September 19th)
- National Dog Week (Last full week in September)
