It’s very easy to organise your babysitting business when you use Pocket PA because it has a beautifully colour-coded diary to show you exactly where you need to be on any given day and what time you have to be there.
The app also has an online booking module which means that appointment making for babysitters can be automated and integrated into your website or your social media pages using the booking button. Your clients can then see exactly when they might want to book you and can check if you’re available at the time they need, and if you are then they can schedule themselves into your free slot!
It’s even possible to send appointment reminders ahead of your upcoming babysitting so you will impress your clients by looking very professional and it will clarify your exact arrival time so there are no misunderstandings.
Tracking what you get paid for each appointment is very easy using the app and if you need to send an invoice then it offers a great way for easy billing for babysitters.
It’s also simple to check if anyone still owes you money because there is one red button to press that will show you anyone who hasn’t paid.
With a couple of clicks, you can send a personalised invoice with a clickable link and once your client makes the payment directly into your account, it will be logged onto your income dial so you can see you’ve been paid!
No more awkward conversations and chaser text messages asking for money!
And you can put through business expenses in the app to offset against your income by snapping, sorting and storing all your receipts for the things you can claim for. These receipts will all be saved on the cloud for easy access 24/7 in case your accountant asks to see them at the end of the year.
And working out exactly what you have earned every single week, month or year is very easy with Pocket PA because you have a colour-coded visual dial to see everything. It’s super easy to understand so you don’t need a maths degree or numerous tutorials to work through!
