No response to sit request

Hi there,
Sorry to hear that you haven’t had much success. If you link your listing to your forum bio, members can review your listing and give advice; this is often the best way we can help you. In the meantime, you might want to check out this blog I inspired for THS about mistakes to avoid when creating a listing - have a read and see if your listing can be improved.

About invites and calendars:

Remember that the most successful way to secure a sitter is to have a stand-out listing that attracts applicants, rather than through sending invites. Invites occasionally work out for some owners, but most owners secure sitters via applicants; these are the people that actually want to sit for you and are available for your dates!

A sitter’s calender only shows availability according to dates that they’re booked / not booked for another sit on THS. A sitter cannot input dates that they’re actually unavailable for THS. So, the calendars are rather unusable and inaccurate. This is a big reason why sending invites rarely works out.

Hope that helps! :blush:

(And here is how to link your listing to your bio if you’re unsure):
