Sitting Made Simple® launched in 2008 by local nanny, Amanda Knapp. SMS® is the local, safe and reliable option for families and sitters. SMS® has always been online, but our direct phone and email access to a local owner sets us apart from all the other options offered today! 10 years later the SMS® model serves families and sitters across 6 cities with ease. It’s the perfect balance of online and local. SMS® connects local area families and sitters online, while offering direct access to the local owner via phone and email for all those questions and concerns!
SMS® offers sitters for those random last minute needs, date nights, Mom breaks and the highly sought after school and summer programs. SMS® Franchise owners walk right into a successful model with full support of the SMS® Team for all software, marketing and operating needs. Today, SMS® can be found in Cleveland and Columbus OH, Dallas TX, Indy IN and Nashville TN. 2018 + 2019 locations launching NOW! STL Sitter in St Louis MO is based off the SMS® model.
What makes SMS® different from other online models available?
A: The first obvious reason is we’ve been around over a decade now! There isn’t anything we haven’t tried or haven’t experienced by now! We’ve built six websites since 2008 and are are no stranger to the robot world when it comes to child care! We brought web development in house in 2018 after working with the same web partners for over 7 years. In house web development and graphic design puts us ahead of the game once again! We know what the users actually want! SMS® offers the perfect amount of online and LOCAL, it’s key today more than ever!. Data says Mom needs more than another online website or app that connects families. SMS® not only has the online feature every busy Mom looks for, but all SMS® Families and Sitter have direct access to the local owner via phone and email too! Moving completely online has always been around. SMS® is and has always been committed to sustainability. We are not interested in the newest online feature someone thinks will work. We know what works and what doesn’t work- the SMS® model works, says data! And we all know data rules the world!
What makes the SMS® franchise model so successful?
A: That’s easy! Data! It also helps that SMS® has been around for over a decade now! There isn’t anything we haven’t experienced or tried that we don’t already know about! And we are best known for our LOCAL services offered, along with and our online innovation throughout the years. The current SMS® Franchise owners can’t wait to speak with you about their SMS® franchise, their experiences and why they choose SMS®!
