Yes i noticed that also.I have never placed an ad on there so i thought i would give it a go but when i realised the ONLY charge for personal service adverts and everyone else still gets it for free i didnt bother.A perfect example of false advertising by the advertisers i think as it still comes up under the banner of "free adds" which is no longer strictly true.

They said they were doing it to stop timewasters and duplicate ads. My experience is that guys who phone or mail from the site don't read the details, ring from withheld numbers or request details by text and generally want much a much cheaper service.

I have however met a couple of really nice genuine guys from there, but not sure it's worth continuing to advertise when there are plenty of other sites attracting the more savvy type of guy.

A retired escort friend of mine, who still manages the website of lady who is currently working, says that it is a very good source of work.

I think it all depends upon where-else you are advertising. If you are on Pnet, Plink, couple of national as well as regional sites and your own website then it's just another place you are paying for and diluting the industry down.

For instance many folk say they cross reference between my main site, **, Pnet as well as regional sites coming in at any one of those. I'm sure if I dropped some of those listings they may well have still found me. If however you decide to just advertise in one or two places I'm sure VS could form an important part of your business.

The Lever who founded Unilever once said, "I know that half the money I spend on advertising is wasted but I can never discover which half."

One of the other problems is that there seems to be a glut of new directories and advertising sites appearing, many paid-for. There can only be space for so many, and you have to decide which ones are worth it - something the sales guys don't seem to accept.

I agree with you there I paid once when they started charging but was just getting timewasters who like you say email asking silly questions and text.

I found I had better response from the site months ago and recently it seems to have gone downhill imo it not worth paying for certainly not in Liverpool anyway ;)

She said me exactly the same. The only clients you get from there is the ones who book incalls and for a minimum duration of appointments.

I advertised there for over two years and had 4 clients (all bog standard incalls for 1,5-2 hours at most). They all were fine, but not somebody I would like to see repeatedly.

My friend Lana had none during 2 years of advertisment on Viva Street, but then she does not provide incalls and her availability is very limited. Still, she did not had anybody from Š°dultwork either.

Yes, that makes sense, Xenia, as the girl she was talking about does mainly short incall appointments.

VS is still saying it is a "Free" classified site, and the 'Personal' ads section invites you to place a "free ad".

If they are going to charge Escorts then perhaps readers of those ads might take the ads a little more seriously if they knew we were paying to be on there.

Something else I've noticed is that increasing the basic price has brought it closer to the 'Featured' ad charges. Ok this might mean more ladies are encouraged to go for the enhanced ad options but then what is the point in being 'featured' is everyone else does it too - then you are still back at square one.
