When the COVID-19 pandemic blew up all over the world, many industries were severely affected. Dog training businesses were some of those badly hit by the crisis. Social media marketing expert and dog trainer Dylan Maxwell Blau has been busy helping dog training companies and many other businesses survive the economic onslaught caused by the coronavirus.
Many people refer to Dylan as “Dylan the Dog Trainer” and “Mr. Social Media.” Owner and founder of The Blau Agency, Dylan runs an all-inclusive talent management, social media, and branding agency. He has worked with many large companies in branding, marketing, lead generation, sales, networking, collaborations, websites, content creation, and personal management. The social media and marketing expert loves to help people scale their businesses and brands “from A to Z,” as he would put it.
Dylan Maxwell Blau first entered into digital marketing and social media as a practitioner of his craft. One of his personal successes is his own brand, We Are Dog Training, that teaches the world how all dogs and all humans are trainable. Several years ago, he realized that only a few dog training businesses were actively building their brand on social media. Dylan saw this as an opportunity to pioneer something revolutionary. The dog trainer would spend the next few years creating a strong social media presence as an influencer around dog training and business advice.
Fast forward to today, Dylan Maxwell Blau is one of the leading social media influencers in the category of dog training and marketing. Through his personal dog training company, Epic Dog Pros has helped thousands of dogs in the last few years. With over thirteen years of experience as a professional dog trainer he has truly come up with a unique approach. Dylan’s innovative all-inclusive dog training programs help clients with obedience, aggression, and behavior cases in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. More importantly, by providing an all-inclusive program, he helps his clients maintain the results and live the best life possible with their dogs.
When the COVID-19 pandemic erupted, Dylan saw another unprecedented opportunity. He looked to create a solution for fellow dog trainers whose operations and sales received massive blows by the crisis. He provided social media marketing and branding training as well as business coaching to hundreds of dog trainers. As a result, Dylan has helped many people in the training industry find work and continue operations amid a worldwide pandemic. Dylan advises that even in a pandemic, you must focus on giving your clients what they need and not to change your business model to fit your own benefits; an example is going all virtual when you ethically know clients need hands-on help.
With his ethics for providing an all-inclusive service to help people, Dylan Maxwell Blau turned his passion project into a full-fledged business and started The Blau Agency. Today, he extends his services to companies and brands in other industries as well. He is currently focusing on helping TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube Influencers turn their brands into a business, and on the flip side, helps businesses turn into brands on social media.
Dylan hopes to teach more dog trainers, businesses, and entrepreneurs how to make the most of their brand on social media. “I want all the up-and-coming talent and business owners to know that there are ways to even the playing field in highly competitive industries,” shares Dylan Maxwell Blau. “The truth is, even if you have the best song in the world or greatest service or product, if no one knows about it, it doesn’t matter.
Dylan continues to operate both of his thriving companies during the pandemic. This widely sought after consultant and keynote speaker is also the author of two books entitled Social Media Secrets and We Are Dog Training.
