What Value Does A Wg Put On A Regular Client

23 posts in this topic

The post concerning WG's increasing prices made me think about the perceived value in "£" terms an independent WG would put on having a group of regular clients.

My thought processes are as follows:

A WG charged £110 per hour, but then put her prices up to £130. The first price was at the top end budget for several of her regulars (by regular I mean a punter who visits at least once per month) who enjoyed the time they spent with her but now cannot justify paying the additional £20. She in turn liked these regulars because they were polite, clean and enjoyable to spend time with.

The WG would benefit by £20 per hour from her clients who can afford the price increase and the "casual" punters who only visit a WG once and don't return. The downside is that she would lose £110 in perpetuate from her regulars who are excluded by the price increase.

Would the WG make a special arrangement with the less affluent group (obviously on an individual basis) whereby they paid the former price of £110?

Is having a regular, good client worth a £20 discount to a WG?

Short answer is yes. Most escorts I know will keep their regulars price at the original price and only apply it to new ones.

Obviously i can only speak for myself but if i punt wih a regular it is never in perpetuate, there is always a time when i move on but i might be punting with the lady 3 times a week or even 13 days out of 14 as i did with a regular lady who was retiring and wanted to lap up as much of her service as possible. I often have a break from punting with a regular and go back if she is still about.

I happily pay the rate originally agreed, if the lady offers a discount i gladly accept, if the ladies rate has gone up its rare that i have been charged her new rate, in fact at least two ladies refused to take the extra when i said i was happy to pay it. They both had brilliant attitudes and were friendly and enthusiastic as was the now retired lady, that, fancying them and offering the services i require ensures my custom at least for a while.

My experince as a punter is that I don't like it when girls put up their prices but such large jumps. Its not like I can ask my boss for a 20% raise and expect to get it. I can of course change jobs, and if the lady is going 'up market' then that is a different matter. But a £20 rise for current customer is just annoying and suggests a change in attitude, i.e. they are liking the work less and value the money more, and it is best to move on.

I do find that a lot of the punting business is very badly run by people who quite often have very bad business acumen. Don't mean to slag any independents off, they are generally pretty smart. This whole pricing thing for extras is also appallingly bad business. After all who wants to be haggling about an extra £20 for OWO, or £30 for CIM, and another £40 for A. So that £150 for 30 mins for a worn out mattress of an undecorated spare bedroom in some delapidated backstreet of suburbia. How does that make pricing sense, advertise £60 and ask for £150! Just means ever-one spends £60 and no 1 spends £150.

A regular punter should be like gold dust to a working girl, as it reduces the risks considerably, saves lots of time and cuts sales/marketing costs and they get good referrals (punternet reports). It just good business.

I wouldn't know as my prices have been the same for years!and going down for special offers. But, talking away from monetary value, I often juggle bookings around to fit in a regular, is always good to know who is coming and that there is no problems with them.

I saw a lady regularly when I was up north on business. I first saw her when she bid on a reverse auction I put up. The price I could afford (and the amount she bid) was significantly below what she normally charged.

I saw her once at this price, and when I went back up and booked her for a shorter time at her usual rate she queried why I hadn't booked her for the same amount of time as last time. I told her that I couldn't afford 2.5 hours at her usual rate. At that point she suggested that we just kept to the price I paid before.

It certainly kept me coming back, as I saw her lots of times whereas at the higher rate I probably would only have seen her that second time before moving on.

I hope I'm not being unkind, but if a girl puts her prices up from £110 to £130, you tell her you can't stretch to the new price and she doesn't offer a discount, then your value to her is not what you hoped it was.

I think when prices rise it's the one time it's safe to ask for a discount based on what she thinks of you as a client. Have a go, you may get lucky like Tibbs. If the answer is a polite no then you'll have to accept that you aren't worth a £20 discount. But don't be offended, after all, she's not worth an extra £20 to you either it seems.

Does it make good business sense? It's impossible to tell, but it's her business not yours. Cheer up, there's plenty more fish in the sea.

Aww, that's nice! :) Would you care to share what those prices were?

Yes, the lady in question's standard price was £300 for 2 hours and she bid £220 for 2.5 hours. I did ask her about dropping her rates and she said it was because I'd obviously taken time writing my request text and it made her laugh. We got on like a house on fire. She rarely stayed for less than 3 hours (and wouldn't accept any more money) as we liked to natter.

I only got to see her for a few months before my contract ended and I came back home. I'm back up in a month or so - I'll have to get back in touch. /edit done a quick search and she seems to have retired :(

She also introduced me to 69 racing. She'd sit on my face and give me a BJ and we'd see who could make who come first - it got very competitive, we even had a scoreboard!

Its all depends how many clients WG aim to see in week/month.

If she only want to have 10-12 meetings per month, she should give preference to see new clients instead of repeats/regulars.

Simple explanation: there are high possibility that new clients might become regulars, and regulars are going to be regular anyway!

Following it: there should not be any discounts for regulars, because they taking time, which should be given to the new clients instead, because they subsequently might become repeats/regulars in the future and bring even more income, and where regulars are just a single constant. Same as in geometrical progression. :-)

I more often than not get requests for discount from prospective new clients. The thing is that I have noticed that those who have asked, tend to be those who make making a booking difficult!!Lots of one line texts asking questions, wondering if standards will be dropped, refuse to spend credit phoning.

Then there are those who have only seen you once in 3 years, but think you might offer a regular or returning customer discount.

Does it not occur in thought that a lady is more likely to consider someone who is a little more to the point, makes simple and straight forward bookings?

As long as you not taking me to seriously. lol.

Yes, I am following formula of the the Sky, Mobile Telephone companies, Broadband providers, etc. They not giving anything to the previous subscribers, who been with them for many years, and spent thousands, but they always have much better terms for a new subscribers, because they know once they gain them, high proportion will continue with the contract for many years.

Works for them, and I am sure works for some girls with a mercenary approach.

I am not like that! *touching her nose, in case its become longer* lol

Comparing punters and consumers of other products like mobile phones is wrong. People tend to have a bank account, and a phone cos they have to. Hence the need to attract new clients, and lure clients from other providers. A sensible wg, will keep her normal prices sensible, and discount moderately to heavily for a regular. Another factor in the sex industry is the "koolidge factor". This condition is named after an ameircan president, and is used to describe male boredom with the same partner. Men crave sexual novelty, a wg with a regular who is no problem should discount to stop the customer mooching back to the parlour. Of course every girl organises her working life as she sees fit, but my experience, is that even busy busy girls, still have time on their hands. I have been offered 50% of the going rate, a few times.

There are probably a few reasons for some girls putting their prices up-

Quick fix- for a time limit- try to make as much as can for a target then disappear, may come back under various alias names

Aim for a certain particular client that can afford their prices- lose clients that are constant bang on about discounts- what do they get for time etc,.

being overloaded with clients- putting prices up deter this.

Regular clients are valuble to girls and they cherish this fact and look after them xx

My prices stay the same I dont put them up or down. But if I did put them up I would keep my old rate for my regular clients without a doubt.

i can think of a couple of ladies that charge me less than their advertised rate as an indi, but i have been seeing them for a while now, and another frequently goes well overthe time booked and will not accept any more money. :)

Not trying to be pedantic (even though it sounds like it), just curious about girl's opinions......

Are ALL regulars really that valuable? Even regulars must be slightly irregular, they can go missing without warning when they're short of money or the wife catches them. Some might be nice, polite and pay the right amount, but perhaps they're a bit boring. Or they smell a bit funny. Surely only a select few regulars really get looked after, and the rest are just lucky that you still answer the phone when they call?

I cherish my regular "regulars". Over time I have got to know them very well. No one ever asks for discounts but they tend to stay well over time. I enjoy their company and will happily re-jig my schedule to accomodate them, (not bump off other clients obviously).

I would not put up prices for them and indeed often do special offers. For example I am off to a Test Match in June for a whole day and evening for the price of a 2hr booking. It is somewhere I want to go, with someone I enjoy spending time with. Meals and drinks will be paid for and I will be picked up and dropped off with a little private time at the end. This would not be offered to many. But the gentleman in question I have seen every month, once or twice, for the last 3 years since I started.

Other "regulars" may visit quarterly, twice a year, annually. It makes them returning customers but not necessarily regulars. I will still do my best to accomodate them at short notice/odd times (because I know they are not time wasters), but they would not get preferential treatment. I treat all clients as prospective long term "special friends".

It depends on the lady I think. Not all want regulars though I've never understood why.

To me, regulars are my business. I started out with the intention of building up a few good friends to see on a regular basis. I never wanted a constant procession of new ones. Apart from anything else, it would not have been as discreet as I prefer to be.

I now have a great mix, several good regular friends who get treats in many various forms and a new visitor every now and again. :)

Yes they are that valuable Tom. If a guy chooses you to see regularly I take that as a massive compliment as there are so many girls to choose from.

I reckon having to improve on profits year on year are the reason banks and phone companies have to find new business and poach it from others.

A sensible WG will do exactly what is right for her - hours that suit, fee to suit, number of clients of the type she wants, and type of appointment she prefers. Some may be happy to pack all commers in, make as much money as possible but for others they are happy with limited hours of hooring as they like the freedom the money brings to pursue other areas of their life be around for family committments, other occupations, or hobbies.

Some men do crave sexual novelty but it isn't the case for everbody. There are those who like to see the same escort over years and as long as they feel they are getting value for money, the appointment has given them great pleasure, no boundaries with feelings are being crossed, they'll continue to see the same person for as long as they are around. If he does get bored and moves on then that's his choice - it's due to boredom he left and I can't see discounting a certain % is going to keep him around for much longer.

Can't see why anyone would think a regular should be entitled to a heavy discount - if I visit my favourite restaurant regularly they may find me a table at short notice if they can but they certainly wouldn't be offering to take a large chunk off the bill because of my regular patronage and I certainly wouldn't expect it.

I find it unusual that a lady would push her prices up &20 to a reg client.

I've had a few reg ladies in my time and when they have increased their rates to new clients they have kept the rate the same for their regs.

If anything a discount has been offered to me on occasion to entice me round but i don't agree to that either.

What i expect from a reg lady is the not being pushed out the door when the time is up attitude so a little extra time goes along long way with me.

To answer your question i think a £ 20 discount to a good client is invalueable.
