Our tails are wagging to work with you!
Solid Gold Pet
Brand Awareness Measurement & Brand Lift Campaign
Background: Solid Gold Pet is a producer of premium, holistic, natural pet food products. Experiencing increasingly more competition in the marketplace, Solid Gold Pet wanted to better understand brand awareness and purchase intent of a targeted audience of dog lovers.
Strategy: The expert team at Sidewalk Dog worked with Solid Gold Pet to design, execute, and provide analytics on a comprehensive survey aimed to assess brand awareness, engagement, and purchase intent amongst dog lovers. Leveraging insights from that market research, Sidewalk Dog created a multi-channel brand lift campaign to increase both brand awareness and purchase intent amongst the same audience.
Results: Two custom surveys were developed (pre- and post-) along with a staggering 148 pieces of custom content that were published within 30 days. As a result, intent to purchase increased by 37%, brand recognition increased by 20%, and the campaign delivered a 12% increase in purchases of Solid Gold Pet Food.
“We’re very happy with our campaign results and look forward to partnering again soon.”Solid Gold Pet
Product Trial & Testimonial Acquisition
Background: TEEF! is a producer of dental care products for pets uniquely designed to balance the oral microbiome for a healthier mouth. TEEF! desired to gain a critical mass of pet parents willing to participate in a product trial.
Strategy: Collaborating with TEEF!, Sidewalk Dog created and managed all elements of the product trial including a trial demand/participation campaign and survey question formulation, design, and technical development.
Results: The program delivered a 34% conversion rate of completed surveys. Additionally, consumers engaged with the custom on-page article for an average of 3:32 minutes.

Pre-Market Demand Generation & Product Trial
Background: Kurgo is a leading producer of pet products uniquely designed to make it easier than ever for dogs and their people to get outside, explore, and travel. Their goal was to inform marketing strategy while generating pre-market demand via a product trial to create proponents and influencers upon market launch.
Strategy: Sidewalk Dog had confidence that their audience of active pet parents were the ideal candidates for this test. They created a multi-channel demand generation campaign driving their audience to a kickstarter campaign and integrated into Kurgo’s trial program for the new product.
Results: Kurgo gained the desired participation in their campaign and product trial, and gathered the necessary marketing intelligence to support a successful launch of their rucksack. Of all partners participating in the campaign and product trial, Sidewalk Dog drove the strongest performance results.
“Sidewalk Dog was a critical paid channel for getting our product funded on Kickstarter by consumers. Working with them on this project was like pouring gasoline on our new product launch. We look forward to working with them again and getting our future products in front of engaged pet parents.”Kurgo
