I want to tell you about this new amazing website.

Basically, it’s the website marketplace for babysitters… where parents can find babysitters and sitters can find good payed job.

You will be able to make money online by babysitting and you can earn a lot, this is a place where technology meets babysitters.

About Website

In their own words:

UrbanSitter is a community match service for parents and babysitters who connect online through Facebook and their existing networks. The site enables parents to search, book and review trusted sitters within minutes.

If I remember, the website is launched in San Francisco in September 2011, but now they secured $1.75 million in seed funding.

And that’s why I’m writing this article, because I’m sure now that they can be trusted and that many of you will make money online as a babysitter.

They are headquartered in San Francisco, UrbanSitter was founded by a small group of parents who wanted to use technology to power a faster, more personal babysitting service.

How It Works

It’s really simple, you (sitter) can log in through Facebook, select the neighborhood you’re willing to babysit in.

You can request reviews from parents that you worked for to build credibility.

More people will find you with the website, and you can setup calendar when you are free to babysit, set your hourly rate and get paid.

And can view each sitter’s availability in order to select a sitter for a specific date and time, or plan an outing when they know their favorite sitter is available.

Jobs or interviews can be booked in minutes and parents can contribute written reviews, ratings and Facebook “Likes??? to sitter profiles.

I almost forgot…It’s free, there are no fees, you control your hourly rate right on the website.

Also you can manage bookings from one convenient location.

There you go, use the web and become the most popular babysitter and earn more money for yourself on the side.

Skip conventional methods, people will be able to find you through the site easily and more opportunities will be available.

I must say that this is one really unique and very useful idea that helps both sides a lot, you don’t see these types of sites everyday.

Just one more proof how technology is creating more easier way of living and making money online.

  1. If you’re looking for a way to manage babysitting work anywhere on the web (not just on a single site), you should try SittingAround (https://sittingaround.com). We let sitters take their profiles with them and use them as their own business pages. We’re free to use and have parents all across the country using our tool.

  2. This Urban sitter site launched in chicago, and the rate parents are posting are way lower than average. The site should stratify the service end pay rates, unless it truly is for baby sitters. I cant imagine being a parent and charging $10.00 an hour for someone to watch my child and expect them to be anything more than a warm body. The Iphone app is very glitchy.
