Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss:

The Secret to Winning Sales

Why did they come to you in the first place? Where are they in their mental and emotional state? Provide empathy and a solution no matter how basic or how in-depth they go when they first reach out, meet them where they are at. They reached out to you so connect with them and find out how you can help. You can start by saying something like “I am so glad I got ahold of you today because I want to help solve this for you” or “I am so glad to hear from you today.”

How to Get Through the Psychology of Talking to Clients

Be casual and recognize that they called you. Talk to them like you would friends and family not like you are trying to sell to them. This is a big part of the secret to winning almost every sale. Don’t pry from them just have a conversation. Remember why you started your business in the first place and the passion you have for your business, this will give you more confidence

What Do You Do If They Reached Out Via Email, Social Media, or Text

Try to get them scheduled for a phone call and connect with them. Show them it can be easy and convenient and that you have availability for them. Help them make the decision to go with you. Try even sending an audio or video clip of you responding so they can see you and feel your energy, leaving more of an impact on them.

Saying no in your pet sitting business podcast episode featured image

Episode #258: Why Is It So Hard To Say NO In Your Pet Sitting Business


Saying no in your pet sitting business podcast episode featured image

 

I asked my Mastermind members, what should I talk about next on the podcast? And an entire conversation was sparked about saying NO. Why is it so hard to say no? To themselves, clients, staff? It is an interesting topic that I have a lot to say about.

There is something interesting that happens when you say no to people. They actually trust you more. They are never left wondering if you really mean something because they know that your yes is a yes and your no is a no. But if you are like many pet sitting and dog walking business owners I encounter, a lot of the times their yes actually means no but they are too afraid to say it.

Also… when you say no, you are setting boundaries in your life and actually building your own self respect. Your own person starts to gain confidence because they feel empowered.

 

Biggest Takeaways

When to Say No to Clients

Identify what kind of client you are working with. First, Is this an ideal client? Second, what does your policy say, these were made and written down, for this reason, to say no when you need to.

How to Say No to Employees and Applicants

Look at their availability stay strict with it. Set up policies for change but stay strict with those policies. How many times do you hire someone with availability and then it just keeps changing? Protect yourself and prevent this from happening.

What Makes You Not Say No?

Find the source of why you feel like you can’t say no. What thoughts run through your head? Attack the issue at the source not at the symptoms.

 

 

Show Highlights

  • Identify Your Clients and Say No to the Wrong Kind [5.45]
  • Your Policies and Prices are There to Support You [8.03]
  • Have Boundaries with Your Applicants and Employees [10.50]
  • Why Don’t You Say No? [14.45]

Listen in as Bella tells you all about how to change your mindset to the one you have been looking for.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss

Do You Work FOR Your business or ON Your Business?

If you are doing things on repeat or spending your time doing simple tasks then you should be able to pass them over to someone else and focus your attention on what your business needs to expand. Look at how you spend your days, how much time do you spend on tasks that someone else could have done?

Are Your Processes Simple and Accessible?

If it is complicated for you then it is complicated for your clients and potential employees. If it is not accessible then how is anyone able to help you? These are so important as thinking this way is taking that shift for your mindset to really scale your pet business.

Think Outside the Box, What If You Wanted To Sell?

You never know when this is going to happen since life is always changing. Even if you are not ready to sell it is all about setting up your business to be able to. Would you buy a business with no employees? What about one that does not have a PnL? Whether you actually sell or not keeping your business at this standard shows you what you need to continue to scale your business.

Episode #253: The Secrets Behind Employee Scheduling

 

In this week’s Podcast, I am going to talk about the secrets to make your employee scheduling more efficient. Don’t be afraid, look at your SOP and employee handbook, do they set you and your employees up for success?

 

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss

How Does Your Business Handle Employee Route Schedules?

Giving your employees the freedom to set their own schedules using time blocks can save time and money. However… are they trained to be able to do this correctly? Look at your systems and processes and ask yourself if you are just doing the work because you are afraid to let them take it over?

SOP and Employee Handbooks

Having an SOP and Employee handbook that streamlines this process will help you not have to micromanage. Employees will be more responsive if you are able to provide them with the trust that they can hit all their appointments as they need to and have you there to help them if they are unable to create their own route.

Is Fear Controlling Your Decisions?

Don’t let fear be the thing that holds you back. Fear comes from the unknown so make things known. This helps you take those steps that desperately need to be taken to make your business more efficient and get the most out of your employees. They want to do good and help you but micromanaging can prevent them from being able to do this.

 

 

Show Highlights

  • Does your SOP train your employees to schedule their own routes? (5.40)
  • Now when to take over scheduling and Offer help to assist them (7.15)
  • When to be alerted about when your employees are late (7.50)
  • When to realize you are micromanaging and how this can save you time and money (8.48)
  • Don’t be afraid of change. Rely on your SOP and Employee handbook (11.45)
  • Be prepared for the new changes in the business world (14.14)

Episode #252: How To Choose A Pet Sitting Software For Your Business

 

Choosing a pet sitting software is not an easy task. Maybe you’re overwhelmed with all of the different options out there, or even tried them all but just can’t decide.

It’s difficult to determine which features are important to YOU and then to match those needs up with software.

In this episode of Bella In Your Business, I sit down with Kristin Young, where she shares her scientific process for successfully choosing a pet sitting software to use in your pet business.

 

About Kristin

Kristin spent 20 years in corporate real estate and business. She “woke up” one day and realized she wanted to take control of her time and get away from the common cubicle. With two young kids and a supportive husband, she began the search for an income model that she could manage, grow, and LOVE.

In January of 2019, she came across the opportunity to buy NOT ONE, but TWO cat-sitting companies, with the intent to merge them into a single business. Kristen uses her business experience to take a little of what she knows and a little of what she doesn’t know to learn how to run a pet care business. One of the first steps was finding the RIGHT pet sitting software company.

Episode 251: How To Decrease Turnover and Create Raving Employees

 

In this week’s Podcast, Bella is going to tell you the difference between what happens when you have a streamlined onboarding process compared to being unprepared and wigging it.

She is going to teach you why the onboarding process alone has the biggest impact on your turnover rate and employee retention.

 

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss

Having a Standard Onboarding Process Can Set You Aside from Other Employers

It’s commonly underappreciated to have a concise onboarding process. However… This is actually the most vital part about retaining employees, and weeding out the applicants you’re not looking for.

Being Prepared Can Be the Key to Finding that Superstar Employee

“Employees thrive on clear expectations”, New employees want to do good work and It is our job as business owners to set them up for success. Being prepared and systematized with your onboarding processes, training methods, and SOPs will enable them for success.

The Value of an Employee vs the Value of a Client

How often do you compare the revenue an employee brings in compared to a client? This is a huge thing that a lot of business owners don’t think about. Finding the balance between losing or gaining clients and employees is vital.

Episode 239: Let Me Help You Hire Employees In May!

This episode is one of our shorter episodes but I wanted to bring you two very valuable opportunities.

First is the pop up group I am starting for the month of May. I am challenging you to pick a number of people that you will be hiring and let me help you hire. Do not go into this summer under staffed and feeling scared to hire. Join this group for only $10 and I will show you along with a bunch of other people who are in the same exact position you are.

 

Also, to help you prep for this – I want you to take my Jump and Scale course. It is completely FREE and it is three one hour sessions showing you how to create hiring ads and attract the right people you want for your business. www.joinjumpconsulting.com

Episode 238: How To Crush the “I’m Too Scared To Hire” Fear

In today’s show we’re going to talk about hiring employees and those fears that may surround this topic. If you’re not into hiring employees, that’s totally fine! But if you are, sit back and have a listen as we dive into it all and approach those fears that just may be holding you back from growing your business.

Show Highlights

 

  1. Topic has been talked about my free Facebook group, Jumpstart Your Pet Business. [1:35]
  2. You may have been burned in the past or heard horror stories and that scares you. You feel independent contractors cost you less [2:18]
  3. Having independent contractors is a major liability. [3:02]
  4. I want you to get confident in your process. The hiring process is a two way street and you’ll need to understand how that is going to do for your life and your business[3:22]
  5. You may be afraid to hire because you feel you may need to micromanage or they may be a flake and cancel. Or they may not have your same standards unless directly trained by you. [3:37]
  6. Many have gone through a lot of hires over the years with only a handful of good employees.[4:20]
  7. Fear of animals being abused or mishandled has been a big factor [4:40]
  8. Sometimes you have the fear of losing the team you have because they are great and you’re afraid they’ll leave. [5:00]
  9. Another worry is attention to detail that my endanger the safety of the animals such as not locking things properly [5:28]
  10. Your business is only going to be as good as it’s leader – you. It’s the captain that steers the ship! If you’re down on the docks mopping and doing other tasks and your ship crashes, you can’t blame the ship for not sailing right. It’s not that it didn’t sail right, it’s that we left our position – we weren’t being the leader [6:10]
  11. What I’ve learned is that no one is going to be as good as me. Why? Because a lot of them are going to be better than me. I can add value to pet businesses and pets by aligning my values and vision if I’m too busy being in the trenches. Same goes for you. [7:04]
  12. Staff has one job to focus on as their primary responsibility, which can make them better as it instead of you doing way too many things at once. [8:34]
  13. If you’ve been in that rut of doing it all yourself, how long has it been? How long have you wanted to get out of that rut yet expecting something to change? [9:37]
  14. The hiring challenge from May 1st-31st which is normally $525 will be $10.00! Whoa! It won’t be a huge group where you’ll get lost. You’ll be among people who are doing what you’re doing, getting direct advice from me on how to hire and learning the best method hiring practices [13:39]
  15. Once you understand these hiring practices, once you’ve tweaked them, you’ll be able to hire the right people that will support your business [19:30]
 
BIGGEST TAKE AWAY:
 
You don’t have to do this alone. It doesn’t have to be a scary experience. Once you get your hiring processes in place, you can have the right staff to support you while you steer your ship and focus on what’s important to scale and grow your business

Episode 237: Facebook Hiring Ads with Pam Curry

In today’s show we are rounding out the series that has been all about Social Media and the best way to actually leverage it! We’re going to talk to you about using the graphics you can get from Better Marketing With Bella, (or any graphics you might make) and how you can create a campaign to attract people in your local area, who are already members of your page, to work with you.

First off, it’s important to remember: US & Canada Ads must not discriminate or encourage discrimination against people based on personal attributes such as race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, family status, disability, medical or genetic condition.

 

Show Highlights

  1. Difference between ‘Boosting’ and an ad. Ads are used to get people to take action and it then directs traffic to your website. A boost just pushes it out to as many people as possible so your ad can be seen. A boost doesn’t inspire action. [2:50]
  2. A Campaign Setup is the initial part to do when in Ads Manager. You start setup in under the umbrella which is your hiring campaign [3:41]
  3. When starting your hiring campaign, you must declare to Facebook that it’s a hiring campaign when you’re in the U.S. and Canada. When using a Custom Audience, be sure that your audience selections do not discriminate against people based on certain personal characteristics. [4:07]
  4. Have your pixel on your website. It will immediately start gathering data. Research how to add your pixel. [7:53]
  5. Location is the next part. We desire to hire with our proximity, but with FB ads it’s difficult to get a precise location range. Not use of postcodes or specific locations [9:23]
  6. Power of the localized audience. This is where it helps you find the right people [10:43]
  7. Be selective and broad with your targeting interest to have more of a range in results. Think of people like your team [11:07]
  8. Placements: go with all placements just to start with and let Facebook to the optimization [12:09]
  9. Optimization: Important to select Landing Page View so Facebook know what action you want people to take [12:44]
  10. It’s important that people press “see more” because that tells
  11. Facebook that you are engaging your audience [14:26]
  12. Can you come up with one sentence, or five words, that will make me want to click “see more” [15:06]
  13. Create ad copy. Use a well performing post from your page to create the ad. Keep it short and simple, lead with the benefits, and do not include a list of “must haves”
  14. Media: Do not use stock images. Use pictures of you actual team members with dogs, selfies, or behind the scenes photos. Carousel ads. Better Marketing With Bella graphic [16:00]
  15. Headline: Have fun with it! Finish ad with website URL. Send traffic to your landing page [18:07]
  16. Make sure everything is working properly and all the correct links from your landing page is taking people the right place [12:12]
  17. Make sure your pixel is on and tracking is captured
 

Biggest Takeaway: 

You have to make sure that the entire process is completely taken care of and is a smooth journey for your visitors – from start to finish.

Episode 233: How To Decide On A Social Media Manager

Biggest Takeaway You Don’t Want To Miss

  • Social media is the storefront of your business and doing it on your own can be tough. Finding the time, knowing the strategies, and planning it all out takes a lot of time. Many pet sitting and dog walking businesses make the mistake of delegating their social media management to someone [usually younger] on their team when they don’t know the first thing about managing a social media presence. Others may look to marketing agencies for help, only just to be sold a fantasy and end left empty-handed. When they do promote your business, they may not be in line with your brand (i.e. colors, logo) and your business’ beliefs. That’s why it’s crucial to have someone who knows the ins and outs of the business.

In this episode, we’re diving into the importance of social media management & things to consider if you’re going to:

  1. Manage your own social media
  2. Hire someone from your team
  3. Hire an outside agency

I also explain the importance of how social media management can help or hurt your business. What most don’t realize is that because you don’t have a storefront, your social media IS your storefront and the way you show up online will either encourage people to hire you or repel them from doing so.

  1.  Handling your own social media accounts [3:00]
  2.  Start with one social media platform, Instagram [4:10]
  3.  What is the point of your social media? [6:37]
  4.  The mistake of hiring someone on your team to be a social media manager [9:24]
  5.  Create SOP’s for your brand guide [10:49]
  6.  Your store front is your social media [14:57]
  7.  3rd Option – Hiring an outside agency & ensuring strategies [15:32]
  8.  What qualifies someone to be social media expert? [24:11]
