For many pet owners, the animals in our homes are an essential part of the family and our daily lives. We know, we have many canine employees here at the Zipwhip office that have become part of our family. So, in thinking about how to provide our pets with the best care possible, we understand how crucial it is to have access to a veterinarian, especially in the event of an emergency. We’re excited to announce that Zipwhip is now a preferred partner of WhiskerCloud with the intent to improve communication and strengthen the relationships between veterinarians, people and their beloved pets.
WhiskerCloud is a web-development firm that designs custom websites for veterinarian practices big and small. To date, the company has focused on delivering cloud hosting, search engine optimization and integrations that are specific to the veterinary industry. Now, WhiskerCloud will also incorporate Zipwhip’s Click-to-Text feature into the design of veterinary websites, allowing people to literally click a banner to text their vet directly and seamlessly. This tool will help veterinarians increase business accessibility, customer engagement and retention, as well as improve their service in their local communities.
With SEO in mind, the collaboration is particularly influential in relation to Google AdWords click-to-message extension. Veterinarians that want to advertise their business have the option to add this extension to mobile search result ads for users that prefer conversational text messaging instead of being put on hold for a phone call.
If you’ve ever had to take your pet to the animal hospital, then you know how stressful the situation can be. Time is of the essence, and it’s pivotal to find a doctor that you can trust to help. Click-to-Text is an extremely valuable tool for pet owners in the event that their pet needs medical attention right away. It enables them to send a text message to a business’ existing landline or toll-free phone number from their desktop or mobile device.
The purpose of Zipwhip’s partnership with WhiskerCloud is to encourage conversational texting between vets and people on behalf of their pets. With Click-to-Text, veterinarians will be more visible online and accessible for the animals and people who need their help.
