With 119 unique contributors, the #GoPetTravel event united pet owners throughout the world (including persons as far as away as Australia) on the topic of traveling with their furry friends. In fact, #GoPetTravel reached more than 400,000 Twitter accounts and had more than 10 million impressions as the party raged from 7:00PM to 8:15PM/EST.
#GoPetTravel party-goers were most eager to learn how to lessen the stress of travel for their dogs and cats, what pet-friendly destinations are most popular for the summer 2013, and what are the best activities to take part in with one’s four-legged friends. Information and opinion was traded with 1,000+ tweets!
“As the season transitions and we long for warmer weather, many people start thinking about vacation. For pet owners, planning is essential. The ultimate pet travel tip is to select a destination where you can participate in enjoyable and bonding activities with your pet, but can also easily get help should an emergency arise,” explains #GoPetTravel Host and Pet Care & Lifestyle Expert Charlotte Reed.
#GoPetTravel also credits its sponsors, AAA and Quaker Pet Group with its March 5th success. “Selecting high-quality and properly-sized pet travel products, like Sherpa® pet carrier bags, are just as essential to creating a comfortable, secure and pet-friendly travel experience as selecting your destination, airline and hotel," states Quaker Pet Group's Director of Marketing Cristen Underwood.
Additionally, relevant giveaways from Tagg, the Pet Tracker and Thundershirt encouraged #GoPetTravel guests, just like those at Reed's first, two parties of the year, to tweet up a storm, resulting in trending on Twitter.
On March 13, 2013 from12:30PM to 1:30PM/EST, Charlotte will host also a Live #GoPetTravel Facebook Q & A geared toward mommy bloggers and others whose family will be traveling with their pets this summer.
But Reed’s next Twitter party, #GetPetClean, scheduled for April 9, 2013 7:00PM/ EST, will focus on easy and affordable pet clean-up. Charlotte will share tips and tricks about managing your pet’s hygiene and home needs. Sign-up now at: http://twtvite.com/
