Happy Monday, IBPSA Members!
"Before we launch into quick news and reminders, I have a personal request - will you help us with our Annual Pet Services Survey? As of today, a few dozen of you have contributed - THANK YOU! - but the deadline is looming and we need many more for this survey to be of true value not only for your business but for the industry as a whole. The survey results will reveal key benchmarks and financial insights to help you wisely spend and budget for your business. PLUS you receive a FREE Executive Summary (last year the summary included 8 pages of key data - good stuff), as well as 50% off the final detailed report if you participate!
I know it can feel like a bit of a homework assignment, but once you gather your financial info it's a breeze and costs you nothing but just a bit of your time. And, just to be clear, your financial info stays CONFIDENTIAL. Get the details and take the survey at the link, and THANK YOU: Click here for the survey"
Now to the quick reminders and updates...
We just added MORE FREE webinars! Charlotte, our guru of all things webinar and hot off the heels of her Maui holiday, is crushing it! As many of you may know, before joining IBPSA as COO, Charlotte owned a pet care facility in Texas which she sold for a premium. As a pet care facility owner, she took full advantage of all of the resources IBPSA offers, including our FREE webinars as well as our conference and workshops like Pricing For Profit (next one in October) which is why she can now take holidays in Maui. Take us with you next time, Charlotte! To check out all of the upcoming webinars, log into your IBPSA Member dashboard, check the Events tab, and start registering.
Congratulations to IBPSA Member, Noble Dog Hotel, who opened their luxury pet care facility in Greenville, South Carolina, to the public last week. Like many of our IBPSA Members who join while still in the development stage, Noble Dog Hotel joined IBPSA before opening. Taking advantage of our resources and community helps get pet care businesses off on the right paw and we could not be more thrilled or proud when we see the "we're now open" announcements. We wish Noble Dog Hotel much success!
