How Do You Promote A Pet Sitting Business?
If you are starting your own pet sitting business, knowing how to advertise and promote your business can be the difference between failure and success. Your target market is retired people who travel a lot, professional people who work a lot, or anyone who does not want their pet in a boarding facility. Here are some pointers in the right direction. Place an ad in the business telephone directory. Post flyers on bulletin boards at local veterinarian offices, grooming salons, pet stores, and animal food stores. Send direct mailings to local travel agencies, pet and animal associations and clubs. Advertise on local cable television, in small local newspapers, and in pet newsletters. Rent a booth at animal and trade shows. Create a web site that details your services. Offer to watch your friends pets for free to gain experience and references. Join associations such as the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, or Pet Sitter International for information about certification, i
