How a waiting listing can assist you gather clients
I don’t understand about you, however when I started walking dogs I had a full-time task with full benefits.
I helped a newspaper called the Fargo Foolum as well as was not comfortable just up as well as quitting my task without gathering a few clients first. However, it’s difficult to gather canine walking clients when you’re working full time.
So, what I suggest you do is publish the hours you want to walk dogs on your web site, even if you currently work one more task during those hours. likewise include the hours you’re currently able to walk dogs, if you’re able.
So, perhaps that implies you put your hours as 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day, even if you currently work five of those days.
Then, accept the clients you can realistically in shape into that routine best now, if any.

Someone named Karen phone calls or emails about needing you to walk her canine at midday Mondays as well as Wednesdays.
You would just state or email something like:
“Hey Karen. Ďakujem za tvoju správu. I’d like to assist you out, however I’m currently not able to fit new clients as well as have a waiting list. If you’re interested, I will reach out in a couple of weeks when I have an opening. Are you versatile on the time of day for Cookie’s walk?”
This opens up the possibility for flexibility.
Maybe Karen doesn’t truly requirement you at noon, however 10 a.m. or 3 p.m. would work just fine. perhaps she’s even versatile on which days you walk her dog. Some people can be flexible, others can’t (understandably).
You would data Karen’s info, as well as then reach out in a week or two to touch base. Either tell her you have an opening or let her understands she’s still on the waiting list.
Sure, a few of the people on your listing will relocation on as well as discover one more canine walker. That’s fine. They would’ve done so anyway.
