We get it! We have multiple pets, so we understand. Paying for pet care while you are away can get expensive, especially on those long trips. There is a way, however you can receive free pet sitting by a professional.
Here is how you can get free pet sitting by a professional!
Most professional pet sitters offer a referral program. Referral programs benefit both the pet sitter and you, the pet guardian. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising for a pet sitter. Often times the pet sitter will give an incentive to those who share their business with others.
The incentive varies among professional pet sitters. The pet sitter may offer a certain amount off the next time you schedule a visit. This can range from $5 upwards to $25 off a future visit. Some pet sitters also offer a discount of 5-10% off next booking. This is certainly worth taking advantage of as it could result in substantial savings to you, especially if you take long vacations.
How most referral programs work is,
You spread the word about your experience with your pet sitter. Encourage friends and family to give your pet sitter a call. Share pictures and stories your pet sitter has provided while servicing your pets.
You can also share posts from your pet sitters social media pages and comment on what a fantastic job the pet sitter did with your pets. Leave positive reviews on social media about your pet sitter.
Once your referral books and pays for service, the pet sitter will notify you and apply a credit to your account. The more you refer the more credits you can accumulate. This can result in substantial savings on your pet care bill when planning a nice long vacation.
A bonus is if your pet sitter also gives a credit to the person you referred. You refer the pet sitter and receive a credit but your friend who booked services also receives the same credit. This is a win for everyone.
If you aren’t sure if your pet sitter has a referral program ask.
What’s keeping you from telling others about your fantastic pet sitter? Don’t worry that they will get too busy to take your future reservations. Professional pet sitters value long-time, clients who appreciate their service and tell others about them.
