Having the best profile possible, will definitely help you in securing the best sits.
When editing your profile put yourself in the homeowner's shoes and think about what information you would want to know about a potential house sitter. There is lots of space on your profile page for you to share the relevant information. Your profile is your showcase so make sure you include enough information to give a homeowner a really good impression of who you are. It is very important that you let the homeowner know what you will do for them in order to give them constant peace of mind whilst they are away.
Photos - these are essential and you can add up to 12. Consider including some of you caring for pets or perhaps involved in a hobby so that homeowners can get a flavour of your personality. Homeowners love to see you interacting with pets.
Request external references - Character, employment or previous house sitting references are all helpful in putting a homeowners mind at rest. Many Homeowners will not give a profile a second glance if it does not have any references. So as you can see, they are very important. You can request these under your drop down menu - Verification - Basic.
Get Verified- We have the 3 badge verification process which will give you the extra credibility on your profile, Basic, Standard & Enhanced.
Make an introductory video - adding a video profile via your webcam or cellphone is easy and is a great way to give your profile the edge
