write pretty blog postsIt’s amazing to see so many pet sitters beginning to understand the value of writing plenty of content on their websites.

If you do not like writing, it may become a necessary evil that you’ll have to come to terms with, as more and more of your potential clients will hop online to search for your service.

A pet owner will pull up Google, type in an appropriate search term, and what websites are going to be shown near the top of that first page?

form a connection

Do you find it frustrating and confusing to keep up with all the things you should be doing to rank high on Google’s first page?
