Thinking of incorporating a cute four-legged creature into your company's next marketing campaign? If you're doing this on the web, you may naturally think that cats would be the way to go. After all, there are some pretty famous online cats and cat memes. \u00a0Grumpy Cat, LolCats, \u00a0Lil BUB to name a few. But if you're thinking kitten images, you may be scratching the wrong post. Instead, you might want to be thinking of puppies in marketing. Recent\u00a0data from Adobe Stock\u00a0reveals that puppies are more popular than kittens, by far -- at least when it comes to stock images for marketing. \u00a0Stock photos of puppies are downloaded 62 percent more than photos of kittens by\u00a0Adobe Stock users. That figure is based on paid downloads of stock images at Adobe Stock in 2015, according to the company. \u00a0Many of these downloads are used for marketing materials, the company\u00a0added. The Power of Puppies in Marketing Cats essentially have a "forever home" on the Internet with the popularity of cat memes. So, it's a little surprising to see that puppies trump kittens in the paid downloads category at Adobe Stock. Maybe it's the puppy dog eyes.\u00a0Whatever it is, puppies in marketing have\u00a0powerful appeal. Adult dogs are more popular than adult\u00a0cats, too, although the difference is not nearly as stark as with their younger counterparts. Dogs are 21 percent more popular\u00a0than adult\u00a0cats at Adobe Stock. Digging a little deeper into the data shows that the top downloaded breed -- Best in Show, as it were -- is\u00a0the Golden Retriever. Labradors are second, followed by bulldogs, beagles, and German shepherds. \u201cAnimal photos of all types are in high demand across stock photography services,\u201d says Zeke Koch, senior director of product management for Adobe Stock. \u201cBut dogs and specifically puppies really lead the way.\u201d Before you download that photo of an adorable kitten chasing a piece of yarn to use in your next social media post or as part of your company's new marketing campaign, you may get a better response if you pick a slobbering fluffy puppy instead. It works at the Santa Cruz SPCA. Puppies draw more love than any other furry creature. \u201cSocial posts involving puppy photos generate some of the quickest responses and higher volumes of \u2018Likes\u2019, \u2018Loves,\u2019 and comments than most posts,\u201d says Mandi Hart, Shelter Manager of Santa Cruz SPCA and Humane Society.
