How do I create a checklist? Find a topic in your niche that your customers need help with. Create an outline of the steps involved to solve that particular need or problem. Put as little or as much detail into each step as absolutely needed, no more, no less. Once you have the checklist, publish it to your website as content. Make sure that you have set out all the important steps. Trivial steps, while they are there, are not the ones you want to get caught up on. Why you should be using checklists. A checklist helps the reader to solve a problem they are having, and your website becomes the place where they found the solution. Many people often feel as if they are missing a step when it comes to accomplishing or solving problems. Since people are also naturally curious, the brain will want to know if you came up with steps that they missed. They will have to visit your website to read the checklists, and maybe even give you a few steps to add that you might have forgotten.
Secondly, the checklist should be comprehensive. Many prospective home watchers will have a simple list. Unless you live in an extremely simple condo with no bathroom, that won't work. It should include all parts of every system. The plumbing system needs to be broken down to toilets, sinks, drains, and supply lines as well as water heaters. The air conditioning system checks must include temperature checks, humidity recording, filter checks as well as output temperature measurements. If you are presented with a simple 'toilets, air conditioning, sprinklers' checklist, go elsewhere and save yourself future heartache and headaches.
