I'm having trouble getting started, help?

asked 2016-07-08 18:49:11 -0500

So I have had this account for two weeks now, roughly, and I haven't gotten a single booking. I know that isn't long but I have bills to pay and I am stressing this perfect job won't work out

It took me awhile to get going as well. Business cards have definitely helped me a lot. Check out this site too! It has lots of good ideas. Best of luck :)

It does take time to get your first booking. Use the advertising tools Rover gives you on your dashboard. Order business cards and hand them out friends,family, neighbors, etc. Walt gave some good advice as well.

Viewing your profile as a customer, the fact you have a cat (one is shown in your main profile picture) might deter me from contacting you if my dog doesn't get along with cats. That's not a slam on you, just a possible explanation why you may not get a request from someone.

Patience, patience, patience. Most of us waited weeks or in my case 3 months before I booked my 1st client. I looked at your profile and you should upload more dog/cat pictures and work a bit on your profile. Also contact your friends and family and have them write reviews as they count a lot. Also review your prices against your local competition and set them lower, lots of folks price shop. Good luck and welcome to Rover.
