Listed below are some pointers on how to spread the word and promote your belly-rubbing, cat sitting service:
1. Your Profile Page
Your beautifully designed profile page was created so that you can treat it like your very own personal web page, think of it as your digital business card!
Please remember your description in your profile is the first thing cat owners will see, so it’s important that it reflects your reliability and the type of service you offer in addition to who you are.
In your own words, have you:

- Provide fresh food and water for your cat daily
- Clean the cat bowls and litter trays
- Enjoy plenty of play time and cuddles
- Send daily photos and updates"
2. Added the areas you would be happy to cat sit in?
e.g. "I'd be happy to cat sit in Shoreditch and Dalston"
2. Promote your lovely profile online
Once you’re happy with your profile, it’s time to proudly share your cat feeding service with the world.
