Hello Darlings! I know, I know…it’s been ages. Contrary to what you might think, I haven’t spent all this time locked in a wine cellar with the agency phone. Nope, I’ve been arguing with Exes (Yes I have a few exes and they are all a pain). Almost done now. Lots of dust. Lots of money spunked on boring things like solicitors but I’m nearly there.

I thought I’d make my first blog back one on working as a successful escort, because I know everything, right? I’ve run Elite Courtesans escort agency since 2006. That makes me sound ancient but I’m actually only 30 in escort years (that’s 42 in traditional human years). Did I start escorting when I was 14? Nope… just don’t do the Maths then 😛

So here goes…

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

By which I really mean, don’t let Adultwork and Twitter be your only form of marketing.

Yes, Adultwork is a good website and yes it’s made setting up as an escort easy – but there are negatives. When the website goes down or decides to implement changes that impact you, you aren’t going to get any work. I’ve seen ladies moaning on Twitter about taking the day off because Adultwork is offline. Madness. Imagine one day it doesn’t come back? I also see tweets from genuine escorts with an established Adultwork profile complaining that their page has been deleted for no apparent reason. Problems like this are worsened by the fact that the only way to contact Adultwork is via a website form (they list a company address in Belize, another in Gibraltar) which may or may not be answered. Last but not least, there are an inordinately high amount of time wasters that trawl Adultwork looking for escorts, and many wonderful punters out there that don’t use the website.

My advice – get your own website to run in tandem with Adultwork and other social media platforms. Google the main keywords for your area (e.g escort Bristol, escort in Bristol, Bristol escorts, Bristol escorts, independent escorts in Bristol) and add yourself to the directories that come up on page 1 of Google

Get some decent photos

Woe betide the escort who tries to promote herself with crappy photos! Whether that’s a black and white close up of her left tit, a provocative school uniform pose next to a washing machine and piles of dirty laundry, or God forbid extreme close-ups of her most private parts. Yes you’re selling sex but it doesn’t have to be seedy, think sensual and alluring instead. Good quality photos are a must if you want good quality clients.

Take care of yourself

If you’re selling your body then bloody well look after it. Need to lose a few pounds – do it. Need a manicure, pedicure, eyebrow pluck or your teeth whitened – do it! There is a market for pretty much everyone where escorting concerned, but I can tell you with certainty that the prettier and better shape you you are in, the easier you will find to make money.

Your clients aren’t there to chat

I will never forget the call I had from one Elite client many years ago. He told me that after a short period chatting, the girl stood up and proclaimed ‘I am guessing you didn’t really invite me here to chat?’ and disappeared off the bathroom. She emerged a couple of minutes later in a full stocking and suspender set with a black lacey bra and knickers. She pushed him onto the bed and promptly jumped on top of him for a deep snog before giving him, and I quote, ‘the best time of his life’. Now THAT’S how you do it ladies. One regular customer in your belt.

Trust no one

Or at least, be incredibly wary. Keep your personal information sacred, keep your personal life and your escorting life entirely separate, and if you are considering making friends with another escort remember jealousy and back stabbing does occur. No, I don’t hate everybody ever, there are plenty of fabulous ladies in this industry but there are some dreadful wronguns too. It’s not always easy to tell which is which. Like you would an old, frayed rope bridge over crocodile infested river, approach with caution.

Don’t take your clients for granted

If you’ve accepted a booking, be there.

Don’t bore your clients with excuses about the fact that your nan died again, or your car exploded, or you’ve been admitted to hospital with a rare virus like Covid. Turn up on time, show them a great time, and don’t leave early! The escorts that make the most money have clients who book them time and time again. If you aren’t getting regulars, something is wrong.

Lose that husband or boyfriend

Not in real life of course, just as far as your clients are concerned. You’ll have to me here. Your boyfriend / recent engagement / fabulous husband should not feature anywhere in your marketing strategy. Not even during careless pillow talk.

Treat your escort business like any other

Like every other business in the world, with escorting you get out what you put in. Provide a high level of customer service, be organised and market yourself well (advertising may not always be free). Look at what else is on offer in your area and do one better.

Invest in your future

There is a very high chance that if you have the right look, the right personality AND you manage your escort business well, you will never come close to earning the sort of money you do as an escort again in your life. I’m not going to go into figures of what’s possible, but it’s rather a lot. Invest in the future. Pay off your debts. Buy a house. Live mortgage free. Travel the world. Put your kids through private school. Don’t squander it basically. If you start doing that, you’ll never get out.

Loose lips sink ships

Keep your chosen profession to yourself. Don’t tell anybody unless you absolutely have to, for example so they can check you in and out of bookings. Think carefully about showing your face in photos. You may not care what people think now, but that could all change in the future. Remember – you do not need to show your face to make lots of money.

So there you have it. Ten important tips in no particular order. I could probably write for days on the subject but those are the most important things that come to mind. Keeping safe is obviously a big part of being successful – after all, you can’t make loads of money if you’re dead – and you can read a separate blog on that here.
