Digital Marketers who specialise in Veterinary
How we began…
As a practising vet, our founder Susie became frustrated with the lack of reliable tools and resources to assist pet owners in understanding when veterinary attention was required. So, in 2006, VetHelpDirect.com was launched.
Since that time, VetHelpDirect has grown to include a Vet Directory and Reviews platform, a Symptom Checker and Poisons Guide, an online Pet Health Library and, more recently, a Video Consultation Platform. VetHelpDirect also runs the annual Best UK Vet Awards.
In the last few years, supporting veterinary practices with expert digital marketing support services has become a key focus of the business and our team of digital and veterinary experts has continually grown.
Today we have a 14-strong digital marketing agency with our core hands-on digital team having a combined 90+ years veterinary experience and that’s not even including our additional network of veterinary qualified content writers. The agency has dedicated teams covering web design and development, SEO, social media, online ads, bespoke copywriting and live web chat services, supporting businesses across the veterinary industry – not just vet practices.
Time for change…
In recognition of our growth and brand proposition, in 2019 we rebranded the agency side of the business from ‘VetHelpDirect for Vets’ to ‘VetsDigital’.
Soon, that wasn’t quite enough. As both sides to the company grew, the decision was taken in early 2020 for the companies to separate. VetHelpDirect.com continues to look after tools to support vet practices, made up of specialists who are passionate about improving animal welfare by connecting vets with their clients through technology. You can find out more about the team and how they can help you on their website.
The continued growth of VetsDigital…
As for our team here at VetsDigital, it’s probably fair to say that we are now Europe’s leading digital agency that specialises in the veterinary sector. We work with vet practices, pharmaceutical companies and other veterinary companies, to provide specialised digital services that they cannot source in-house. In particular, we can build and optimise your website, manage your online footprint, run your social media presence, provide live chat support to your clients, and supply you with up-to-date clinical content pitched at your clients.
The reason we’re better at this than non-specialised agencies? Firstly, this is what we do! We have fifteen years’ experience in what works for animal owners, and what doesn’t.
Secondly, we’re a solidly veterinary team. We’ve put vets and RVNs in the centre of the business, because we know what it’s like to be in practice.
Thirdly, we collect and analyse data on everything we do. If we suggest something, it’ll be because it’s more likely to work than any of the alternatives. We help and support a huge range of practices, and all that expertise is at your fingertips when you pick up the phone to us.
We understand how to engage with pet owners online. We can help you educate, gain and retain ideal clients and help your veterinary business grow using proven digital marketing techniques. To our clients, we are simply an extension to their practice team.
