Make Money From Home Part 3
An Unusual Home-Based Business: Pet Sitting
You like cooking and gardening but you still want to look for more home-based business ideas.
Walk around the neighborhood. If you noticed a bored-looking dog with its nose pushed down, your new business is about to be born.
Pets are animals but they need attention. They also need exercise and grooming.
Does the idea of walking dogs around for exercise interest you?
If yes, you have three ways to advertise your new service-oriented business around.
Use the telephone. Call your neighbors who have pets. Offer your pet-exercising services verbally.
Use the computer and printer. Create flyers that announce your new business. After a thorough market research for payment on this type of service, put a price list for the services you offer. A much lower introductory price will attract customers quickly.
Use your feet, eyes and mouth. This third strategy would be the most effective. Do your shopping daily and every morning so that you will be able to see all your neighbors who have pets.
How to Win a Pet's Heart
Approach them one by one. Chat for a few minutes. Show your interest to their pet. Scratch the animal's head, only if it acts friendly. This is your way of introducing yourself to your future client.
Animals have a long memory. They remember those who show them kindness for a long time.
Of course, during those casual morning chats, you should have mentioned your new business. But before you offer your services, discuss everything you know about pets. Without being a bore, talk about your capabilities bit by bit.
After a week of interaction with the owner and the pet, they will both be ready to trust you.
Test the waters on the eighth morning. Call the dog by its name and if it comes to you gleefully, you just won your first client. You can put forward your business proposal to its owner.
