Words of Wisdom
When there are already other businesses in the same field you’re entering, you may want to undertake a little detective work to learn more about how they operate.
In Andrea’s case, she paid close attention to the most popular listings. In addition to learning that average response time was critical, she noticed that successful dog sitters didn’t just board dogs in their homes, they were also available for other services like drop-in visits and walking while their owners were at work. She added those services to her listing on Rover.com and saw a 20% increase in weekly income.
When Andrea and her husband, Nicky, moved to Austin, they wanted to get a dog but since they had some long travels planned, it would be a while before that was actually possible.
Andrea saw an ad for Rover.com and thought that if it was real, it could be a perfect chance for them to get exactly what they wanted. They would get an opportunity to have dogs around their house while still being able to travel whenever they wanted. And the best part is that they would actually get paid for doing it!
