First of all, make sure your profile is attractive (see How do I create a nice profile?) and up to date. You can promote it by sharing it on social networks and ask your friends and family to do the same. Some sitters have also had great success with handing out flyers with their profile link in their local area. Make sure to always respond quickly to messages and requests and to keep your availability calendar up to date.
The most important thing is to do a great job caring for pets! That way you will make pets and their owners happy, gather positive ratings and your profile will attract even more pet parents in search of the perfect pet sitter.
The more bookings, positive ratings and repeat guests you have had, the higher your profile will be ranked in the search results. As an added benefit, word will get around, your clients will recommend you to their friends and you will have a growing clientele in no time!
Besides keeping your profile in good standing by following the suggestions on your dashboard, and staying at the top of the search results that way, you can share your profile on social media or do offline marketing.
We currently don't have any marketing materials available, though we are considering it in the future.
If you wish to create your own marketing material, such as a flyer or a business card to hand out locally, feel free to do so. Should you wish to use the Pawshake logo in them, you can find it attached to this article.
If you would like to include a link to your profile, but your regular link is too long, get in touch with us. We can provide you with a customised short link.
