Becoming a Helper on Huddle is a rewarding way to look after adorable kids, create relationships with the incredible mums in our community and make money while doing it. If you’re keen to fill up your schedule as a Helper, one of the best ways to do it is by recording a short video of yourself so that families can see your personality and energy.
Huddle will then promote across our social network and newsletter as a way to feature you as one of our Helpers and encourage local families to book jobs with you.

Emily and Kerra received dozens of inquiries after their videos were promoted by Huddle, and both of them booked jobs with tons of new families!
So here are a few tips to make a video that can help you achieve the same results:
- Be your natural lovely self! Your video doesn’t need to be rehearsed or written out, but a few bullets may be helpful.
- Turn the phone in the horizontal position before filming and keep the focus close up on you (i.e. on your head and shoulders as opposed to your whole body).
- Ensure there’s sufficient lighting and stand around a meter in front of a background that’s not distracting.
- Introduce yourself (no last names please) and say that you’re a Helper on Huddle App as well as the area in which you live.
- Provide a brief description of your child minding experience and/or why you love looking after kids. Your profile should include your skills and certifications, so this can be a great place to show off your personality.
- You can also share your favourite Huddle experience so far or what you love most about being part of the Huddle community.
- End with something along the lines of “looking forward to meeting you and your family soon!”
- Keep it short – your video should be 30-60 seconds!
It’s okay if it takes a few tries to get the video right. But once you’re happy with it, send it across to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can promote you to our community!
