2. Keep 100% of all Nanny Placement Fees - You keep 100% of all future placement fees when you use NannyPod’s software platform. We also advocate keeping your existing Nanny Agency business and brand.
3. Co-Brand - You get to co-brand your Nanny Agency logo with the NannyPod logo. This gives you instant extra brand recognition and credibility on marketing materials, email signatures and your website as an approved on-demand childcare provider.
4. Save Time - Nanny Agencies spin their wheels setting up occasional babysitting appointments / date-night sitters, manually billing families, and worrying if sitters got paid accurately. The NannyPod app handles all of this for you, saving you time and allowing you to focus on nanny placements where you earn more money.
5. Second Source of Income - Start getting an efficient second source of income to supplement your nanny agency placement fees. There is a huge demand for occasional babysitting appointments / date-night childcare, infant care and in-person family consults. NannyPod helps you capitalize on these opportunities.
6. Get Paid for Every Family Consult - You’ll get requests from families via the app for in-person family consults. These leads will hopefully turn into nanny placements for your agency. You get paid automatically by the way!
- $50 for 1 hour consults
- $75 for 2 hour consults
- $125 for 3 hour consults
7. Get Paid for Every Babysitting Appointment - Families request occasional childcare / date-night appointments via the NannyPod app. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that families are billed down to the exact minute, your sitters are paid with 100% accuracy and your agency will receive their fee (12.5% commission). All of this is completed automatically.
8. Get Paid for Every Infant Night Nurse Care Appointment - Infant Night Nurse Care is a specialty service performed by official registered nurses (RNs). This is requested by parents of newborns via the NannyPod app. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that families are billed down to the exact minute, your infant night nurses are paid with 100% accuracy and your agency will receive their fee (12.5% commission). All of this is completed automatically.
9. Get Paid When Families Visit Your City - Families who are visiting your city on vacation or business may need childcare. Many of them will already be NannyPod Members so they can instantly request your local sitters. For non-members, there’s a quick easy sign up process for visitors, and a one-time $10 Hotel/Resort guest 14 day membership. Either way, you’ll get paid when visiting families use your on-demand childcare.
10. Get Paid for Recruiting New Members - Families buy a $20 recurring monthly or $180 annual membership before being allowed to request childcare via the NannyPod app. If your Nanny Agency consistently maintains a 100 or more sitters on the app, then you’ll start receiving 50% commission on Memberships paid by your local families. We will create a special discount coupon for you too. All of this is handled automatically, all you have to do is help promote it locally!
11. Get Paid for Cancellations - We made things simple to understand for all Nanny Agencies, Sitters and Families with a 12 hour cancellation policy. Any appointments cancelled via the app within 12 hours of the start time are charged in full. This means your agency still gets their commission and sitters still get paid in full.
12. Zero Credit Card Fees - NannyPod absorbs 100% of all credit card fees which are around 3%. This is one less thing for you to worry about.
13. Get Nanny Placement Leads -When you complete in-person family consults, these enquiries may turn into nanny placement opportunities for your agency. This helps you earn more. And even if they don’t, at least you got paid for your time automatically.
14. Keep Everyone Safe - We background check every family for you, so you have complete peace of mind that you, your sitters and infant night nurses are safer when they go to appointments.
15. Streamline Your Operations - We believe that ‘time is money’. Every minute of the day counts. By using our integrated software platform, you’ll be able to keep track of things more easily. Feel like your mind is buzzing in all directions, we can help!
16. Compete with Care.com, SitterCity & UrbanSitter - Your Nanny Agency can really compete now against these large tech companies and others, by providing locally vetted on-demand childcare. You’ll also have an edge over your local nanny agencies.
17. Provide Instant Back-up Care to your Nanny Placement Families - We all know that from time to time nannies who you have placed on permanent basis fall sick or need a personal day off. You can now provide instant back-up care to these families, quickly and efficiently via the NannyPod app. This dramatically improves your customer experience, making you look like a superstar!
18. Help Families get Childcare Tax Benefits & Cost Reductions - Families can easily use their Dependent Care FSA Account at their company or receive the Childcare Tax Credit when using the NannyPod app. This gives them a discount on their childcare expenses.
19. Maintain Strong Client Retention - Families who use your Nanny Agency will stick with you for life. Families earn reward points, which can be redeemed for free hours or discounts. In addition, they have access to convenient on-demand childcare both at home, and in other cities around the USA.
20. Open Multiple Locations - Ever thought about expanding your company and brand to other cities or towns that are near you? NannyPod makes it easy for you to do this. You can now scale overnight with our platform. Did we mention discounts apply for having multiple locations?
21. Improved SEO (Search Engine Optimization) - We handle this professionally for you so that any family who looks up childcare definitely sees your local listing. As we know, most people Google everything these days, and it’s critical your services are found before the competition. Great SEO takes time (it’s not just about settings), so be patient. Follow the marketing guides and after about 1 year your childcare should be near the top of Google’s first page.
22. Work on the Fly - No one likes being chained to a desk! Our platform and set up allows you to work from wherever and whenever you like. Hit your local coffee shop, WholeFoods or get away for the weekend. As long as you have wi-fi access or can tether your phone to your laptop, you’ll have more flexibility than ever. You’ll also be more productive knowing you can handle urgent items, no matter where you are.
23. Minimize Admin - Probably your largest time sucker is administration items like manually billing clients, following up with applicants, tracking who has and has not paid, as well as trying to thread a camel through the eye of a needle when it comes to scheduling appointments! Admin will always be part of every business, but the NannyPod platform makes it quick and easy for you, and even eliminates most of the above for you!
24. Help Your Nannies Earn Even More - Everyone has downtime. Everyone has sick days. Your existing pool of nannies may appreciate knowing that if they’re sick, then one of your other nannies can be requested instantly by the family so that they’re not left out in the cold with regards to childcare. In addition, it’s possible that some of your nannies may want to pick up extra childcare appointments when they’re not needed by their matched family. Help them maximize their income and approve them to be on the NannyPod app!
