(Click on the question below to get the answer)

A. You will receive it within less than a minute of purchasing it! Here’s how it works: once you order one of our Six-Figure Business Products for Pet Sitters™ you will receive an email from us with a link to download the product you order. Just click on that link and you’ll be able to access the file that will show up on your computer screen. It’s that simple!

Please note: if your PayPal account is linked to your checking account (instead of your credit card) there is a 5-day waiting period to make sure the check clears before the order is processed. PayPal will send you an email letting you know if this is the case and you will receive the products the moment your check clears.

A. It depends upon how you paid for your products. If you’ve paid by credit card then the email you listed on the credit card form is where your products will be waiting for you. If you have paid by Paypal then check the email address you use to log in to PayPal as that is where you’ll find your products. Check that email address once you have made a purchase from us. Your products will be delivered to you within less than 60 seconds. Just click on the link we sent you to directly access the products you ordered. And if you have any questions or need support accessing your products, please contact us at Success@SFPSA.com. We want to make sure you get what you ordered. (And we are happy to help make that happen.)

A. After you’ve clicked on the download link, your purchased product will be on your computer desktop. If you have a crowded desktop filled with a lot of icons you may have to look around for the new file that will contain your product! Click on the new file that is on your desktop and your product will immediately open so you can view it.

A. All of the products that you order (except for the webinar / workshop recordings) will be sent to you in both MS Word document format (so you can customize each product you purchase for your own business use) and PDF format for easy viewing and reading. You receive the product(s) in both versions of MS Word: 1 version for Mac and 1 version for PC so that all computers can simply and easily download and change any of the forms, contracts, or business kits that you purchased from Six-Figure Business Products for Pet Sitters™.

The webinar / workshop recordings will be sent to you in mp3 format. If you’ve never opened an mp3 file on your computer or you have no idea what an mp3 file is, it’s easy! Your computer will prompt you on how to best listen to the recording. You will be able to immediately listen to the webinar / workshop recordings on your computer upon purchase of any of the webinar / workshop recordings. The recording(s) can also be easily burned onto a CD so you can listen and learn while driving to a pet sitting job or doing errands!

A. Yes, every single one of our forms can be changed for whatever you might need to add or delete. These forms were created with YOU in mind. Though all of the business forms and pet sitting contracts are complete as-is, you are welcome (and encouraged!) to customize any of these forms and contracts to suit your own business needs. Each business is different. We invite you to make changes as you need to. Many of the pet sitters who purchased our products years ago have changed them on a yearly or every-other-year basis as their business needs have changed.

A. Yes! Ordering online via our website is completely safe. You’ll actually be paying for the products through PayPal, a 100% guaranteed secure payment site.

Here's how it works: Once you click the ‘Order Now’ button on our website you will be directed to the PayPal site where your information is secure. If you have not yet signed up for a PayPal account you can sign up immediately and then quickly and effortlessly purchase one of our products. Again, it’s easy, safe and 100% secure.

A. That’s a great question! Though there are a lot of forms out there for pet sitters, very few forms, contracts and business start-up kits for pet sitters have been crafted and developed from over fifteen years of successful pet sitting like the Six-Figure Business Products for Pet Sitters™ have. These are the same forms that Coach Kristin has used in her own highly successful pet sitting business.

Also Coach Kristin has sold thousands of these products to pet sitting business owners from around the country who have gone on to achieve six-figure success as a direct result of using these business products. Again, over a decade and a half of pet sitting experience has gone into each form, contract and business start-up kit! Kristin has taken note of what has worked and what hasn’t in her years of pet sitting and you get the benefit of all of that business experience within each Six-Figure Business Product for Pet Sitters™.

So, that being said, we will not send out more than three newsletters or announcements in any given month (and usually less than three a month). Anymore than three newsletters a month from the same company is annoying for us to receive and so we want to give you the same respect when it comes to your email box!

Our commitment to you is that each webinar and workshop is simple, straightforward and to the point. Our focus at SFPSA is that you will make more money and/or have more ease in your pet sitting business and in your life as a direct result of taking any and all classes that we offer.

Six-Figure Search Engine Optimization for Pet Sitters™ FAQ:

(Click on the question below to get the answer)

A. Sure. First of all, Coach Kristin is sold on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) because a few years ago she optimized her own website using the SEO steps that she learned and within 2 months of optimizing her pet sitting website her phone started ringing and hasn't stopped since!

Now about 85% of her new client calls are a direct result of people finding her pet sitting business online. She gets anywhere from 3-15 (!) new client calls a day from people finding her on Google and other search engines.

Having a Six-Figure Search Engine Optimization™ coaching session for your pet sitting website will benefit you in two money-making ways:

  1. Within just 3-6 weeks of making the SEO changes your pet sitting company will receive MANY more calls than before you did the SEO work.
  2. You won’t have to spend thousands of dollars on other forms of advertising that don’t generate results (most large yellow page ads cost $1,500-3,000 a year and many people who are looking for your business are going to look online vs. in the yellow pages these days).

The only cost for this simple yet incredibly effective form of advertising is one single SEO session with Coach Kristin and then the cost to pay your web person to make the changes!

If you have a website, having your site optimized for the search engines is the single most effective form of advertising that you can do for you business.

A. Sure, here is how you sign up and what happens: you call or email SFPSA to set up a Search Engine Optimization coaching session and in just one 45-minute session with Coach Kristin, you will receive easy, step-by-step instruction, on what words need to be on your site and where these words need to be as well as other key elements that are guaranteed to get you high on Google and other search engines!

You then give that information to your web person who places the html code on your site.

3-6 weeks after the changes have been made on your website simply enter the keywords we spoke about in Google and watch your website show up on the first page of Google!

Most pet sitters excitedly report that not only are they on the first page of Google but they often find their business website close to (or at) the very top of Google about 3-6 weeks after their SEO coaching session!

A. Coach Kristin is often booked with coaching sessions the same week that you call. However, if she can fit you in that same week, she will! Otherwise your session can usually be scheduled for the following week.
