TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kristen Levine, pet living expert, author and president of Fetching Communications and PetPR.com, is proud to announce the launch of Kristen Levine Pet Living, an online platform with an audience of more than 125,000 at www.kristenlevine.com. The website brings pet-positive companies together with pet lovers to create meaningful content that helps people live better lives through pets.
Levine coined the term "pet-positive" to represent all brands that recognize pets as family and who develop products or services to better the lives of pets or the people who love them. The partnerships serve to educate and entertain pet parents through engaging written and video content. Current partners include Bissell, Pet Plan pet insurance, World's Best Cat Litter, Tagg The Pet Tracker, PetBox, Dog is Good, Cat is Good, and DogTV with more to come.
The premise of Kristen Levine Pet Living, as Levine indicates throughout the new site, is to meet the need of pet parents who seek content and connection with people who love pets as much as they do, and who want to also connect with brands they can trust. Levine will reach these consumers via watchable, sharable and fun content promoted across multiple media channels to increase engagement.
"Pet-positive companies can connect with my audience in genuine ways to reach new customers, heighten visibility, build credibility and increase sales, all while making a difference in the lives of pets and their people," Levine said.
A pet industry insider for more than 25 years, Levine understands the dynamics of pet product companies and the mindset of pet lovers and consumers.
"I created this new platform to combine my professional experience in animal welfare, putting pets and people together, and in marketing, helping pet and veterinary brands reach pet lovers," Levine said. "I'm so energized to be in the unique position to help pets, people and pet-positive companies, all at the same time."
To support pet-positive companies in offering unique content to this audience, Kristen Levine Pet Living offers several partnership opportunities, including:
- Spokesperson and Brand Advocacy: On behalf of the partner company, Levine serves as a pet expert and spokesperson available for media interviews, public speaking, business and consumer events, blog writing for the company's website, and product or service features on www.kristenlevine.com.
- Pet Living TV Series: Levine hosts a weekly online video series, Pet Living TV, where she shares stories, science and advice to help pet parents live better lives with their pets. As a show sponsor, companies receive a branded introductory message, promotion of the episode in Levine's Pet Living Letter email, embedded links to the episode on the company's website and social media sites, and rights to use the video for additional promotional opportunities.
- Social Media Promotion: Levine develops a product review for the Kristen Levine Pet Living blog, along with monthly promotional posts on the social media channels affiliated with Kristen Levine Pet Living, plus a custom social media contest and an opportunity to invite followers of Kristen Levine Pet Living to like the sponsor's social media channels.
- Pet Living Favorites Affiliate: Levine partners with pet-positive companies to offer Kristen Levine Pet Living's audience discounts on pet products and services.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.
