How do contact other sitters/walkers on Rover?

asked 2016-04-22 13:57:59 -0500

I'd love to be able to contact other sitters/walkers in my area. I am booked on a cruise in June and would like to help my clients find other available walkers to cover the time I am away. I've seen several comments left on other posts, saying I looked at your profile, how?

Thoughts and comments please. Walt

Hey guys! I am new in Rover! How can I find first time clients? If someone can refer me contact me through inbox to know a bit about me. Thankyou!

You should be able to look at anyone's profile, even as a sitter. Just go to the home page and type in you or your client's zip code. All the sitters in that area should pop up.

I also refer out when I'm booked - I know who has been around for a pretty long time and has good consistent reviews - I usually point them that way.

As far as contacting anyone? You have to do it through a stay request. I've done it a couple of times, and Rover hasn't gotten mad at me yet. Then just let the stay request expire.

Having a messaging another sitter option would be a nicer.

I know right? I'm not sure why they don't have that option. The nice thing is once you've contacted them via a stay request, you can always go back to your archives and find them again if you want to contact them in the future.

Amber @ Rover just posted FB group to help with this. https://www.rover.com/community/quest... Previously, all we could do is send an inquiry by going to a sitter's profile, and entering a date for a service, along with a message, in order to communicate.

The FB group is a good idea, I joined, but not all sitters or walkers will join.

I contacted other sitters in my area to try to get to know them so I could refer to them. But now those messages are clogging up my Rover mailbox. Even though the "stay requests" have all expired, I can't delete or archive the messages. (Sending a stay request was the only way to contact them.) Any help with this?
