How to add social links to your TrustedHousesitters profile

Danielle Petch

Good communication and writing a great application message will always be the key ingredient in securing your first sit, but references and reviews can be equally as important. Adding that extra element of trust and reassurance is paramount, which is why we’ve added a new feature to your sitter profile page that allows you to share links to your social network pages. 

Whether you’re applying for your first house sit or your fiftieth, adding in links to your social media pages, such as your LinkedIn or Airbnb profile, allows the owner you’re applying to the opportunity to get to know you a little better, and increases your chances at sitter success.

Adding your LinkedIn profile

Firstly, you’ll need to find your public LinkedIn profile URL. To get this, log in to linkedin.com and click the ‘Me’ dropdown menu, located on the top-right hand side toolbar. Then, click ‘view profile’.

This will take you to your public profile page. Highlight and copy the URL in the website field - it should look something like: https://www.linkedin.com/in/your-profile-name/

Go to your TrustedHousesitters Dashboard, and under ‘Sitter profile’, click ‘Edit profile’.

Scroll down to the ‘About you’ section, and click ‘Add’. Then, paste in your LinkedIn profile URL and click ‘Save’. 

Adding your Airbnb profile

Log in to airbnb.com and click your profile photo, located in the top right-hand corner of the page. Select ‘Account’ from the dropdown menu.

Under the main account heading, click ‘Go to profile’ - this will take you to your public Airbnb profile. Copy the URL in the website field - it should look something like: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/users/show/000000000

Go to your TrustedHousesitters Dashboard, and under ‘Sitter profile’, click ‘Edit profile’.

Scroll down to the ‘About you’ section, and click ‘Add’. Then, paste in your Airbnb profile URL and click ‘Save’. 

We hope you find this feature useful in securing your next sit! If you have any questions around this new feature or need any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with your Membership Services team.
