How the advert types can help you stand out at peak times

If everybody boosted or posted at the same time, it would create huge competition levels as dog sellers fought to be seen first.

This is why many licenced dog breeders opt to upgrade and get a Premium/Premium Plus advert.

We’ve put together some key advantages to using a Premium puppy advert over sticking to standard.

3 benefits of using video in your dog adverts
  • Eye-catching puppy advert design

A key benefit of our Premium and Premium plus adverts is that they help you grab attention easier with additional design features.

The orange outline means that a dog browser’s eye will automatically be pulled to your puppy adverts.

  • Showcase more cute puppy photos

On top of the eye-catching design is that your advert will show 4 images (1 large focus image and 3 smaller ones).

This means you have more of a chance of getting a puppy buyer to click your advert because of the extra additional enticing images.

  • More free puppy adverts boosts

With the Premium and Premium Plus puppy adverts, you get 9-18 free boosts. With each boost giving your dog advert 10x the visibility, that makes a huge difference!

The Premium Plus advert saves you money compared to buying a Standard Advert and purchasing 15 additional boosts.

  • More advert exposure with Featured Advert

Premium and Premium Plus adverts are featured at the top of the ‘Find a dog’ and breed-appropriate pages. This means that you’re able to take advantage of prime space.

Over 85% of website users will use a mobile phone to browse their site. Utilising the featured advert spots mean that your puppy adverts will be the first ones a dog buyer sees.
