Hi, I’m Ashley, a high class courtesan living in California. I started out in the escort business 8 years ago, and looking back through my journey, I see that I’ve achieved a lot of things. When I initially started, I had little to no idea what I was getting into. I had no friends and neither was guidance coming from anyone. I wasn’t really sure about the things to be done first or which ones should go last. All I had was my ambition, so, I ventured into the business—I made mistakes; I learned; I achieved success—and you can too.
So, you are thinking of being an escort. You are eager about exploring and exploiting this fascinating world of sex work. Perhaps you’ve played at the adult business once and later opted out because you had no clues how to get a foot in the door. Since I ventured into the escort industry in 2010, experience has shown me a few very important things which every escort hopeful should necessarily know before they actually become one. It is my pleasure to give you some counseling, and trust me, you would be glad you weren’t such a green horn like me. I have put together a guide of my top 10 tips you need to know before you start your sex work.
- Create a Network
Networking is essential to many businesses, including escort service. Most of the successful people I know will tell you that you have to surround yourself with people who have the same interests as yours. It is important to connect with people who have been in the business for long. Reach to them and ask about the things you need to do before starting out. While I understand that not every lady in the business will read your “request for counsel” emails grinning from ear to ear, sending out brief, cheerful emails to established models in the business might get you some of the details you need.
- Create a Personality
Create a page on the web and register on popular social media platforms. This is a great way to start your campaign. It is also important that you have your profile on an elite escort service. Create a personality that makes you most likely to be contacted by affluent men who only want to mingle with high-class models. Make some research on what successful and popular escorts write about themselves and build your content with the same tone of voice. However, don’t lift directly from their material. Provide and continuously update unique and interesting content on these platforms.
- Understand the Market by Knowing Your Clientele
Too often ladies always jump into this business hurriedly, not having any business plans or strategies to penetrate the industry. Escort business is just like every other venture, and you must understand the market and know how to navigate your way to the top. For example, to have affluent businessmen contact you, you will need high quality photos and a beautifully designed website. The impression that you are rich and glamorous must reflect in the personality you exude, to become successful as a sex worker.
- Market Yourself
This may sound similar to some points I’ve discussed in the preceding paragraphs, but it’s an entirely distinct factor. Being visible and having a fabulous persona are not same as marketing yourself. Know what marketing platforms are most effective in your area and which ones to register on. Your efforts will surely bring you clients. When you get good clients, work on keeping them as much as you work on getting prospective ones.
- Be Visible in Real Life
Join a number of creditable industry boards and keep tabs on their “Meet & Greet” events. This will give you an opportunity to meet other ladies in person. A lot of people would be very receptive of an outgoing person. Make sure to show them you’re intelligent, classy, and fun. In this way, you will have real acquaintance with high-class escorts, which may give you the opportunity to access their resources in the future.
- Have a Life Outside Sex Work
To be successful in your work, you must have a life outside work. Maintain a balance between your professional and personal lives. You should not get totally absorbed in sex work. There are a number of ways to cultivate balance are: have two separate phones for work and personal life, volunteer for community work, have a gym routine, or take vacations once in a while.
- Be “D and D” Free
The escort industry is one that is complemented by drugs and alcohol. A lot of ladies think you it is normal to be involved in these kinds of vices when you are in the sex business. While it is normal to unwind with some alcohol once in a while, I advise that you don’t abuse substance. Being drug and alcohol free gives your clients the impression that you also maintain good hygiene. Elite clients would always want escorts they can book on a regular, and having a healthy lifestyle will put you on their priority list.
- Manage Your Time
Perhaps, you take the job as a part-time thing. You need to be able to manage your time well as if you are running a “normal” business. You must set aside time for other activities such as beauty appointments, checking messages, reaching out to clients, and returning calls. One of the ways to become successful is to never disappoint your clients.
- Create an Alias
Your safety is important. To have a private life, you might have to protect your real identity. Creating an alias profile will give you a lot of privacy, and allow you to live a well-rounded life. I recreated myself as “Ashley” and it really saved me a lot of stress dealing with stalkers and folks who got obsessed with me at some particular time.
- Always Satisfy Your Clients
While this seems like something every sex worker should know, it’s unfortunate that many ladies don’t really understand. For clients, desires are diverse but there are a few general things that drive men crazy. Being extremely beautiful may get you clients, but having brains and much sexual confidence will always set you apart.
Now that I have discussed 10 important things you need to know before venturing into this highly competitive industry. Use these factors as a check list before getting into the sex business. There’s just one more thing I need to tell you—success is certain!
