MyDogSit - No more hunting for a dog sitter!

What is MyDogSit?
MyDogSit is an online platform through which dog owners can trade free dog sitting hours with fellow dog parents in their area, using a credit system.
MyDogSit is like a babysitting co-op for dog parents.
Why I'm joining this class?
A few days ago I have launched this landing page and my goal now is to find a minimum of 50 subscribers for MyDogSit in each San Francisco and NYC, to test my Minimum Viable Product (MVP).
But for potential users to even find the landing page, I need to promote it throughout the web by means of funny articles, a video, etc.! And this is the reason why I joined this class.
Look forward to everyone's feedback, criticism and ideas to promote MyDogSit on- and offline!
Thank you very much!

And here's a little more detailed information about my project:

MyDogSit - The sharing concept has reached the canine world

Dog lovers everywhere have undoubtedly faced the dilemma of finding someone to care for our four-legged friend. Inevitably, we’ve had to ask ourselves the same questions: "Who should we ask this time? Who is flexible, trustworthy and reliable?”

For devoted dog owners, the joy of taking some time off is often diminished by the guilt associated with leaving our faithful pooch behind. Aiming to spare pets and their owners the anguish that can result, MyDogSit is a service that allows dog parents in the same area to exchange dog sitting hours using a credit system.

All members are pre-screened by a professional team and are guaranteed to meet extremely high pet sitting standards. MyDogSit provides the website through which dog owners can book trusted sitters in their neighborhood and manage their credits. It gives them the freedom of knowing they'll always have a sitter when they need one.The host family who maintains consistency with the owner’s existing routine for exercising and feeding, and whose environment is similar to the pet’s home.

The result is not just better care for the dog and less worry on the owner’s part, but also savings of quite a few dollars in kennel and dog sitter bills. People don't pay per sit but an annual fee.

Considering that conventional dog boarding facilities take approx. 50$ per day per dog, one can save a lot of money by joining a cooperative like MyDogSit.
