To write effective babysitter job ads, include specifics, contact information, and reasonable requirements, and add a little personality in the ad. Offering attractive perks to the babysitter of choice can be a good way to improve the relationship between the family and the babysitter, suggests Parenting.com.
Having a title that is likely to rank high in a search engine is one factor to consider, notes Inc.com. This will ensure the right candidates click on the ads first. Adding subtitles to the babysitter job ads is a good way to create a sense of order and make it easy for potential candidates to go through the various sections.
When writing the ads, include specifics such as the duration of the job and what is expected of the candidate. This will help candidates decide whether they are a good fit or not. It will also help reduce the amount of applicants who may not fit the bill.
Instead of requiring applicants to have five years of experience, put the minimum limit at around one year. Offer a salary that is also consistent with the amount of work the babysitter will be doing. It is prudent to talk about the home set up and whether there are pets that may cause allergic reactions to the babysitter. Always remember to provide contact information at the end of the ad.
