You are hired to babysit. You have discussed your pay rate with the parents, found out how many children you will be babysitting and for how long, and if a ride is being provided to and from their home. Now you just show up, right? WRONG. There is still more to do.
With every business, there will be some organization that will need to be in place. Being organized will help you remember things and show that you are a responsible babysitter. Start with a calander! Use a calander to write down all your activities for the month. When a parent calls to see if you are available on a certain day to babysit for them you can easily refer to your calander and give them an immediate response instead of saying “ummm, let me get back to you on that”. Use the calander to also write down any babysitting jobs you have already booked. This prevents any double booking and helps you remember when you need to babysit. The worse thing you can do is not show up for a job because “you forgot”.
To get started, you can print our calander that we have made for you! Just write in the month at the top, fill in days in the little yellow boxes, and fill out your activities and any babysitting jobs you have scheduled!
Now that you’re hired, there are some other things to think about, specifically, staying hired. Babysitting coupons are a great way to gain repeat business with each of your clients. Utilizing it effectively will help you maintain business with ease while you focus on getting new business.
