My mom said I could start a babysitting business this summer. I am going to make some poster ads for it. What should I write on the fliers though? I want a good flyer that people will notice and call me about so I can make some money. The only thing I know to put on it is that I can do babysitting. What do I write to get clients?

DO NOT INCLUDE- your address, or your age or sex. if they want a boy or a girl they will be able to tell by your name or your voice when you answer the phone. :)

Be sure to include your name, age, sex, when you are available, your rates, a contact number and any qualifications you have - if you haven't got any official qualifications then stating how much experience you have is good, e.g. '5 years experience'. Bear in mind that a short basic first aid or childcare course will really boost your appeal and enable you to charge more. You can find out about these a community centres and in the local paper.
If you have people who can give references for you, it's also a really good idea to say these are available. You don't need to include the details on the flyer, just put 'references available on request' at the bottom.
Here's a basic template you could use:
Responsible ??-year-old girl/boy available to babysit evenings and weekends.
Trained first aider
?? years experience
$?? per hour, per child
References available on request.
Make the flyers bold and eye-catching but not too garish or childish. Stick to a simple colour scheme and don't be tempted to cover it with pictures or cartoons as this might make you look childish.
If you already babysit for people, it might be a good idea to give them a couple of flyers and ask if they could mention you to their friends.
