FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2012) - Longtime Fort Collins staple and fish supplier, exotic pet shop, pet supply store and aquarium maintenance service, D&G Pets, has joined the social media world. The local Fort Collins pet store has been in business since 1979 and has designed and developed its own business Facebook page to help better market its dynamic business and connect with current, future and past customers.
Their Facebook page is an avenue for customers to find out about new fish and items in stock, current job openings and what sales are currently going on. They have advertised their annual sale in October and Small Business Saturday. D&G Pets also posts fun pictures from their physical store.
Now that D&G Pets has a new website, it is even easier to integrate the pet store's online presence. All blogs on the website are also posted on D&G Pets Facebook page. Co-owners Leonard and Betty Keetley have seen great results so far.
Leonard Keetley says, "As more and more businesses now use Facebook, it was important for us to have a presence both on social media and through a website. Obviously, I think our Facebook page can be a meeting spot for people of similar interests. I also think this is a great way for people to get updated on what we our doing as a business, and what's going on in the exotic pet world."
D&G Pets also specializes in many different forms of aquatic life including freshwater fish, saltwater fish, freshwater plants and coral. Freshwater fish come from Segrest Farms and saltwater and farms fish come from Quality Marine. D&G Pets can custom order fish for those interested.
