“How Do I Get More Clients?”

When asked what is your biggest challenge right now….business owners say “How Do I Get More Clients?”  People are certainly hurting financially during this time. But remember: There are plenty of people who are still spending money. They are just not using it on vacation or luxury type items. But, they are definitely spending. A ridiculous amount of spending is happening online. In fact, one statistic showed people spent more money online in the first quarter of 2020 than they did in the previous 10 years.

Generate more revenue with online and virtual business.

There is a BIG opportunity for you to grow your client base and it’s happening right now. YES, pet based business owners and dog walking services have a virtual or online component! Contactless is an option for pet sitting businesses! Don’t overlook this. The online space is your chance to show your clients how much you care and earn their trust. Bella shares more about this in the four secrets she shares with us.

You Have to TELL Your Clients About Your Covid Protocol.

Yes. We know there are banners at the top of everyone’s websites. We’ve all gotten the generic boring emails from companies explaining their Covid safety precautions. They have become white noise. We don’t “see” these things anymore, much less actually read them! Your clients and prospective clients often assume that certain businesses aren’t available to them because of Covid. Bella gives some excellent tips and ideas for incorporating your care for your clients into your marketing which increases your arsenal of client attracting tools.

Dealing with Feelings of Anxiety, Overwhelm, Depression During this Pandemic.

Worry, stress, anxiety, feeling stuck in a rut and just being sick and tired of being sick and tired are 100% normal.

    What an absolutely amazing, full of energizing, emotional, kick ass information! Whether I am high or low, I always love to listen to you! I will be the first to let you know that people LOVE Zoom “Meet and Greets”. Mine are slightly different and I think this will be my norm forever after. I explain, (but we all know why) the reason for the Zoom meeting. I let the client know that our
    in-person meeting will be the “sniff test” so their animal and the sitter can have a quick get to know you. Also, anything quick in the house of where things are located, although this can all be done by zoom or a video sent. This has by far cut down time spent out at meetings and as you said, has allowed spouses to join us, as well as team members to be present.

    Although this time of Covid-19 has been tragic for sure, it has opened up so many opportunities for those who look for them. Thank you for helping us to keep site of that!

    Cheers!
