    Default how do escorts advertise?

    Hey all!

    I've decided to apply for a job I think I'm really qualified for... sales rep for the adult services at a local newspaper. Full time with benefits and commission! I love the paper and think I would be a great match. I'm working on my cover letter right now, though, and was wondering if people had any insight as to how it actually works in the first place. (If I'm going to claim I can revolutionize the job, I should know what I'm getting in to...)

    Outside of the newspaper, the local erotic magazine, and craigslist, are there other ways in which escorts/adult services workers advertise? I also think that many of these ads are distributed by the same person; I've read Rent Girl and another book that explained that. But are there are particular insights as to how this works that I can use to suggest my own improvements?

    Okay,. that's kind of incoherent. I'm really stoked about this job application. Hmmmm.

    Yay!

    Many advertise over the net these days as well. Business cards planted in various adult stores.
    Way of mouth. And through an agency they work for.

    There are escort sites like eros.com, nightlife.com, etc.

    Then there are review forums, like raps.org(net? com? whatever).

    Smart escorts have ads on all the ad sites and good reputations on the review sites. Craigslist is for cheap asses, and people who put their phone numbers in newspapers are begging to get arrested.

    That's my take on it, anyways.

    Great advice! I have a friend on the phones, responded to an ad on CL and HE got busted. The ad was an escort who did not know how to conduct business by adding her number of contact... so they BOTH got busted..

    Hmm. I feel I should explain that I can maintain the current client base and expand the network of contacts by ensuring repeat business, without saying 'because the people who place ads will be happy with their results and not busted' or something. However, I don't want to presume too much on their business model. I understand it's likely that there's like, *three* clients that put 10 ads each on their adult services spread. With either business model I want to understand and reinforce/expand it... how do I get this across in a cover letter? Hmmm

    Haha I saw this thread and though "wow, anomar decided to start hooking..." I forgot you'd mentioned the job. I don't have any advice for you, but I'm glad you're applying, it sounds like a cool gig.

    Some 'escorts' have their own individual websites, and some have their sites hosted in turn by adult services websites. Follow Lena's site suggestions and you'll find plenty of info.
    chances are if he looked at my profile he got an instant boner. Men get horny around me all the time. That is their fault.. not mine.
    Yeah! Right!
    Customers are not entitled to grope, disrespect, or rob strippers. This is their job, not their hobby, and they all need income. Clubs are not just some erotic show for guys to view while drinking.

    Not exactly the question you asked, but I have some information that might be helpful. I knew two people who were pro-dommes that advertised in the fetish area of the adult section in two local papers. Both of them ended up dropping ads from from one paper but kept the other.

    The problems they had were that they couldn't prepay for ads but had to pay every two weeks (so they couldn't just pay for 6 months ahead of time) and if they ended up forgetting to send in a payment then their ad was dropped and they had to reapply for a space. Another problem that one had but not the other was that she wanted a b&w photo but they put in a color photo and charged her, and refused to reverse the charge even though she didn't want it by saying that it helped her business. The final straw for one was that she had the ad in the paper for nearly a year, then decided she wanted to change the size but they told her she had to be put on a waiting list in order to get the change done. So, she could either wait for her new ad, stick with the ad she didn't like, or drop it all together. She picked the last option.

    Neither of them had any of these problems with the other paper since the other one had a very different business model that focused on customer service and was quick to make adjustments or corrections without hassle.

    The single largest escort site for advertising and reviews is theeroticreview.com. Other popular sites are bigdoggie.net, and aspd.net. Craigslist is popular but generally has problems with spam in all sections. There is a rather new site called backpage.com which competes directly with craigslist although with less spam. Cityvibe.com is also pretty popular as well

    Other than that, just local papers such as you mentioned

    When I use to escort, the agency would advertise online, in the adult entertainment sections of the papers, and also escort directory websites.

    I was escorting back in 2006 for about 4 months. the phone would be rining non-stop because of the way they advertised they also someitmes advertised on craigslist.

    Make sure pre-screen your calls properly or go on Escort websites/boards and try and book appointments by email.

    I have heard of that before...even tried it myself when I was a newbie.

    Not worth the hassle.

    I've seen escorts...advertise on Myspace. I dunno how that works...

    Maybe this will help bring all of the above together: There are basically three types of escorts - the girl who works independently, the girl who works for an agency and the girl who stays Under the Radar (UTR). The agency girl relies on the agency to advertise the agency and as a result indirectly for the agency girls. She is paying for this in the portion of the fee she earns and splits with the agency.

    The savvy independent girl will choose to advertise on the Internet in one form or another. She can advertise on the escort malls and directories such as www.thatmall.com, www.eros.com, www.city-source.com and www.cityvibe.com. On the malls she can display her banner ads (the small rectangular ads you see at the top of the page on these sites) or take a full page on the site to communicate her message at a fee. On the discussion/review boards such as www.theeroticreview.com or www.bigdoggie.com the escort advertises by participating on the discussion boards and by having excellent reviews of her session with clients written about in explicit language. As is done here on this discussion board the posts include a link to the escorts website if she has one. The website is the centerpiece of her advertising campaign because it contains two important parts that the client will want to see: photos of her and her rates. An escorts website is generally comprised of several pages: The Home Page, Gallery (photos of her), the rates page, About Me page, etc. A couple of escort websites that are very well done, but are not typical are: www.alioflosangeles.com and www.amytaylor.com. A more standard escort website, but still well done website would be www.ninafuentes.

    The last type of escort is the UTR escort. She generally keeps a low profile because she is concerned about her escorting becoming know by family, friends or she has a fear of Law Enforcement. She works part time at escorting and advertises minimally in order to keep a low profile. She acquires clients by word-of mouth referrals by existing clients, the placement of a small ad in the local news paper or on Craig's List. LE has learned to follows Craig's List quite closely so it advertising on it subjects the escort to an increased level of risk.

    One thing each of the three types of escort have in common is that they screen new clients by requesting specific information from the client that she can check out such as his name, where he works, work phone number that goes through a switch board and not his direct line, etc. The client generally resists giving information because he wants to maintain his anonymity for obvious reasons so the escort needs to balance her screening process by getting enough information to insure she is going to be safe and still have the client want to meet her. For an excellent look at the business of escorting take a look at the book "The Business Side of Escorting II" by J.D. Roberts. I believe you can order it through www.amazon.com or www.barnesandnoble.com.

    Cityvibe & Eros.. I'd go w/ Eros b/c its easier to manage, more user friendly, and I believe does more business.

    Preffered411.com is a great Canadian based site that does advertising for US escorts. That is great because the FBI has NO jurisdiction over them. It is free for escorts and even screens the clients for you! I dont have much experience with them but I hear the clients are very proffessional.
