Before Tinternet ... What Now?

7 posts in this topic

Before the wide use of the Internet I used to find adverts for ladies working seasonally or temporarily in local papers or shop windows, it was a good way of finding occasional service providers, often mature who maybe coming back into the business for a short time or ladies who needed an income boost.

Where would these ladies advertise now, the Internet would need too much set up time effort and cost for these ladies to use.

My local paper still has such ads and some local shops also still have cards in the windows.

On a similar topic....phone numbers for 'massage' in local newspapers. How many people have used these and how good are they? Is it a case of asking on the phone what they offer or simply book, turn up and ask in person?

I think you underestimate the internet! It's really not tricky for a woman to go onto the site that can not be mentioned here and create a profile, also, much less scary than putting cards in windows and free as well! I can't imagine many women would feel comfortable about taking a postcard offering adult services to their local newsagent!

From what I gather newspaper ads are quite pricey. I also think with as much competition around as there is these days a woman who was serious would need to get a decent profile and some feedback to get bookings.

Even creating a website these days isn't that hard or expensive and there are loads of directories that you can join which don't cost anything as well as cheap ads and being well known on forums such as this!

These take a good knowledge of the industry, I suggest that occasional or part time workers may not be aware of such sites? If you try an uninformed Internet search of say massage, escort and an area the other site does not come up and so finding these sites for a newbie would not be easy
