How can I improve profile to attract clients?

asked 2016-08-17 20:30:21 -0500

I just signed up on Rover couple weeks ago and am currently watching my first client. I've had couple people cancel last minute at no fault of my own (one had a sick child and canceled trip) and another decided to have a neighbor watch the dog instead. I know that people have short attention span, so I'm wondering whether there are any "key" words to grab someones attention or perhaps certain pictures. I got as many badges as I can and posted several photos of previous clients dogs that I watched outside of Rover. The only pictures I don't have are of the rooms inside the house or the front of the house. I do have pictures of the yard. I tried to make it short and sweet but also instill confidence in potential clients.

Anyways, have you found out based on feedback you're received, is there anything in your profile that makes you stand out from others aside from positive reviews?

I think your profile looks great, and I would definitely bring any dog I had to you if I lived in your area. The only suggestion I would make is to move pictures of your yard to the front of the line. As an owner, I would want to see first off where my baby would be staying and playing. The thing that sets me apart, from what my clients have told me, is that I only take one dog, or one dog family, at a time, and many owners don't think their babies do well around other dogs. I see that you only take 2, which is good too.

Hi Victoria: I took a peek at your profile, and it looks really good to me! The only - very minor thing, is that you should think about changing your potty break time to 0-2 hours, since you mention you'd take in senior dogs. My own dog is getting up there in age, and sometimes I'm letting him out every 2 hours (when I'm home all day). Also, if you have any certification/diploma of your vet tech course work, I think there is badge you can add to your profile, or at least you can take a pic of your diploma and add it to your pics.

thank you, I'll do that. I don't know why, but in my setting its set to 0-2 hours, but when I look at my profile in the search it shows up as 2-4.
