Punters - What Do You Look Out For?

37 posts in this topic

When you guys view profiles on adultwork  or websites of escorts what do you look out for? I know people are different so I would expect varying answers but I am curious.

 

Are the pictures the most important or is it grammar or the services offered? Would you be turned off to a pretty picture if the English is poor on their profile or would you not give a toss (pardon the pun)

 

What are the basic requirements you expect off a profile or website and what would definitely turn you on after visiting a site that you know for sure that you are gonna call this escort and what will immediately turn you off the site?

 

Are naked pictures a turn on or a turn off for you as far as website or profile goes? Where does price come into your reckoning in the grand scheme of things?

 

Everything is going by the assumption that the escort's picture is 100% genuine and that this is only about what would make you want to meet this escort based on their website or profile.

 

This has nothing to do with when you do call or after you have called but why did you call, what was it on the site or profile that ticked all your boxes that made you decide to call

Simple really if you have a well written website that is to the point without overloading it with words this is always a good start.

Good quality, clear photos (not photo shopped) either naked or in lingerie really doesn't matter. A clear face photo and a contact number.

Price wise it's your choice, if you choose to charge premium rates then expect less business one assumes. Maybe you need to see what the going rate is in your area?

As a point of note I hate seeing crap profiles with poor photos appalling grammar (not saying mine is perfect) and then a ridiculous hourly rate quoted.

And lastly be honest about your age far to many lie!!

The picture is important.  I understand that you may not wish to show your face but some of the photoshopped masks do make you look like an alien / monster / plastic fantastic / something out of the movies.

Naked or not is not so important, but I like to get a good idea of the shape of a lady I am considering visiting.  To that end, I like clear photos in attractive poses without too much between the lens and the skin.

Graphic pics with legs akimbo or gynaecologists' text book are a definite turn off

 

I like to read a well written description but not too wordy, some go on for a age.  It is nice to read what you are willing to do /say/act like.  It is not nice to be shouted at (particularly in the FAQs)  e.g:

 

Q "Do you xxxxxx?"   "NO!!!! IF YOU ASK THIS THEN I WILL BLOCK YOU AND CURSE ALL YOUR FAMILY FOR A THOUSAND YEARS!!!!!"

 

Having said that, The FAQs are probably the clearest way of getting across facts about you and your services; establishing the boundaries is a must but it can be dome in a positive way.

 

The use of intermittent bold sentences (with the purple background and with lines top and bottom) is good to either headline a new paragraph or just break up the advert.

 

I look for date joined, last date logged in and read all feedback / ratings.

I look for country of residence and area, not that I am averse to EEs but I do like to know what I am getting into!

A contact number is much more likely to get an appointment than an exchange of emails and inevitable delay.

 

Please do not offer services which you are then going to refuse during the meeting.  You will get the first meeting and payment out of the punter but surely it is repeat business that you are after.  A lovely lady recently offered rimming as a service but then refused at the meeting.  In other ways it was a really good punt but I will not go back to her as we had established this was on the cards by text beforehand and I was very annoyed at her attitude when I asked. 

 

Finally, yes the price is very important.  The lady I regularly visited until recently was £100 ph and was lovely; I have also paid £180 for a complete waste of the hour (it should have been 2 hrs).  We are blokes, we want it all and do not want to pay too much for it.  Given 2 ads offering similar enticements but one for less then the other, we will visit the less expensive option.  Look around your area and price yourself according to how busy you wish to be.

 

Finally, finally, Bareback is a complete no-no.  Do not offer this and please do not do it.  I know that some punters will ask but I am sure that it puts off a larger number of potential clients.  calling it "unprotected sex" at the bottom of the list doesn't make it any better.

 

Sorry for going on (see my comment about not being wordy).  I hope it is helpful and if it sounds preachy then I do not mean to insult you, my comments are for general consumption.

Excellent post!  I probably don't need to add anything, though if she is London-based, I find it helpful to go beyond 'City of London' when describing the location ('the square mile' is rarely where the WG is located).  'City of Westminster' isn't much better but I do realise that may non-British WGs may not be very familiar with London boroughs and areas.

 

Also, I am not too troubled by price as long as it doesn't exceed my personal max of £180 p/h - I may even book a longer session as long as it doesn't go much over that - and the brightest 'warning light' flashes on when the price is TOO LOW, especially if the accompanying photos are very beguiling. 

 

Ultra-long lists of 'enjoys' also raise question whether the WG has given any real thought to them - conversely, if she has only ticked 'oral' I assume that she does not offer OWO - but I do pay attention to 'enjoys' if I think that they may give me some real insight into the WG and her own thinking. 

 

And another thing, several good 'free photos' are helpful - I rarely visit a private gallery unless I think I have a pretty strong inkling that I am going to want to pursue the WG further. 

 

I think the main point to bear in mind is that most of these gals are 'indies' and they are the only people who can answer your questions directly.  Feedbacks and Field Reports will always be suspect on AW, at least if you cannot identify the reviewer as someone whose judgement you can trust.  I don't mind requesting a mobile number when the profile lacks this info but I probably will pursue the WG who posts hers first.  And I never book an 'indie' unless I have had a chance to exchange a few words with her first.

welshnhorny has put it well, IMO.

 

In summary, apart from the obvious concerning attraction. I look for evidence of:

 

Good English:

An engaging personality - I want to like the lady as well as fancy her:

As many signs as possible that the lady really enjoys being an escort.

 

75 punts in and I have not had a bad experience, although a great many have been repeat visits.

I like to see a well written profile, that hints at the girls personality, yet remains professional. So, good grammar, spelling, and for me at least, no txt speak or street talk! Don't waffle on. Keep it concise. A big turn off is a list of negatives... I don't do this / that / or the other. Don't patronise the clients. Learn and understand how to use capital letters. I don't find coarse or explicit writing necessary. A shot gun blast of emoticons through the text is irritating, as is ASCII art. I also like to see evidence that the girl is engaging in the industry of their free will. In terms of writing, consider it as you would a business proposal, letter or application.

 

Photographs should be clear, well done and accurate. Standing in front of a full length mirror in your bedroom, clutter everywhere, and taken on a mobile phone are not the hallmark of a girl who works in a professional way. I don't like heavily retouched images. Absolutely no body sculpting please! I appreciate not all girls feel able to show their face, so it's not essential for me, though nice if it's there. Hard core porn shots are not desirable for me, especially ones showing "client engagement". But if you must, and it's bareback, stating that it's "with your partner" doesn't make it acceptable. Don't duplicate the shots either. Keep them up to date, especially if you've changed hair colour / style since, or have changed your appearance in any other way.

 

Age... a thorny issue here. I like a reliable indication of a girls age. I am not so beaten up about its honesty (though best to be) as I am about its believability. (By this I mean I don't especially care if you are 40, but claim to be a few years younger, so long as when I meet you I don't feel deceived.) Most girls can easily knock a handful of years off and remain credible. Few can take a decade or more off and hope to get away with it. I have an age range I'm comfortable punting in.

 

Consider the services offer list and check through those you are happy to offer. If I see it on the list I expect it to be available, and if it was something I was especially keen on I'd be just a touch pissed off not to have it. If it wasn't on the list I might still book though.

 

If you don't have a phone number, then you can forget on the day bookings, and a much smaller clientele as most guys don't have the luxury of being able to plan in advance. If you rely on emails, then check them frequently during the day.

 

Price yourself according to your own local market. Too expensive or to cheap can knock you off punters radar.

 

Don't hide feedback. It's the biggest red flag you can get. Happy punters can sell you better than yourself!

Grammar?  Doesn't bother me in honesty.  Whilst I appreciate well-written language, I go to an escort for sex, not based on how intelligent or articulate she is lol.. 

 

For me, it's largely photos, services, and reviews.  If I find her attractive, she does things I want, and she has good reviews, then I'd go.

I would rather see a profile with bad grammar, bad spelling, etc but one that was genuinely written by the lady and gave me a real impression of her as a person than a profile where every comma was in the right place but only because it had been written by someone other than the lady concerned and probably using the same template the writer had already used for a dozen other profiles.

Got to be the photo's, I only want to meet girls I fancy the panties off :lol:  Unless it's for a very specific service then some leeway may be exercised ^_^  But services are very important, not that I usually look for anything exotic very often!!

 

Then it's price and location. Being a London based punter I am prepared to travel anywhere within London but won't be looking further afield unless I hear of someone exceptional!! And, if the price is too high I will pass by.

 

As for grammar.....well, the worst people at Inglish are generally Inglish people coz thay usualy are the crappest at Inglish gramma innit like, you know, right??  ;)  So I am not in the slightest bit put off if a beautiful EE babe doesn't have perfect grammar. I will not be giving spelling tests during sex. Especially during doggy as she could be cheating and have the answers hidden under the pillow :eek:

I enjoy a punt more if I make a connection with the lady so poor grammar and spelling are a black mark for me, but not a definite no-no. I don't want to read War and Peace though so page after page is a huge turn off. At the moment I'll only book someone with recent feedback. The last feedback being 6 months old is a worry to me that standards may have slipped.

I like recent photos that give me an idea of what I'm going to be getting. So loads of artful over the shoulder, arms folded or peeking around strategically placed furniture is a worry also.

Then I work from the services list. Too much "at discression" is a worry as is ambiguity about OWO and CIM.

A long list of 'dislikes' or 'dont do's' is an instant put off, as is BB listed as an available service and an exorbitant hourly rate

 

Attractive, non too explicit photos that get the blood rising, but only when coupled with a decent number of independent reviews, FRs or personal recommendations are very strong attracters and will very likely result in me picking up the phone and making a booking, as long as she lists services I usually partake of

I ignore the location fields and use the location tab where I can search by postcode.

 

Helps if they put in the right postcode, as I often see girls advertised as being in Glasgow but with a Gloucester postcode.

Thanks for all your comments and contributions. I am sure a lot of escorts like myself are benefitting from the different comments on here with some saying grammar and English being important while others not really caring as long as the escort is honest and good looking in their pictures that are not photo shopped.

 

I have seen my fellow escorts have in 1 picture a big halo on their face and in another, none at all, I wonder if that would put any of you off. I have every part of me showing and do not believe in photo shopping.

 

Does anybody mind that some escorts or agencies use a premium number such as 070 or if you like the look of the girl you will call regardless?

 

How about dinner dates, travel companions or all nighters what will make you consider an escort for any of these activities?

Lots of good advice here.  On points of detail, I'd add: think about the name you are going to use ( suzycumslut carries quite different connotations to rosemaryrosebud) and - if you are doing amateur photos - make sure they are the right way round!

 

Another, complementary,  way of looking at the question is to think hard about what sort of client you want to attract. As you'll have seen from the above, most guys

a) look at only a part of the total spectrum of WGs,  and

B) use - at least in the first stages of getting to a short list - a pretty simple set of down-select criteria to weed out the WGs they are not going to be interested in. Negative criteria are more useful at first because they are faster  to use.

You can use the same sort of thing in reverse to weed out the types of clients you are not so keen on seeing.

 

It's a rather less precise art form this way round - though some WGs do it extremely well - so one solid piece of advice is to make sure that you keep monitoring your marketing, and be prepared to tune it in the light of experience of what works  best for you in your environment.

 

 


 

what would definitely turn you on after visiting a site that you know for sure that you are gonna call this escort ?

 

This part of your question is harder to answer : the jump from 'short list' to 'contact' is a complex one and I suspect - though it will be interesting to see from the responses you get - that approaches here differ very widely indeed. Purely personally, I do a lot of research (so a website as well as a profile is a strongly positive sign), and I'm more interested in longer than shorter meetings, so I'd line up with those above who have emphasised the importance of seeing signs of personality and character. Clearly, however, if you were aiming at the '15 minute quickie' end of the market, majoring on personality  would be less valuable as a marketing strategy.

One with money ? Open to all comers. If you pass the security check you get the vagina. It is a fake arrangement so why look for personality or character ? Many state you must be over 25 so if you put over 25 then Punters who are over 25 feel special if they fall into the bracket. Clever marketing and wise girls.

write your stuff in Word so you can use the spelling and grammar checks.  Get someone you trust to check for errors.  Make sure you put the £ sign before the numbers. Common error is 100£ - its £100. When you are happy copy/paste it into your web page.

 

if you are not English say so.  I don't understand why girls are ashamed of their nationality.  If you say you are English and I turn up and you are not, then I am pissed off. Remember some punters may speak foreign languages! If you say you are from Columbia or Romania (and you are) then that may spark interest.

 

Honesty about you on your webby will mean the punter will leave happy and will come back for a second appointment.  And regularss are the easiest form of marketing.

 

Dont get too excited about dinner dates and over nighters.  Most of your bookings will be 30 mins to 2 hrs.

 

look at other girls pages and learn from the good ones.

I find the service, the free text and the photos most important. I mean: the WG can check and uncheck the checkboxes according to what she wants or does not want to do with clients. I get also a good idea of the free text. It gives me a bit of a clue how the WG is and how she will be. To be honest I pay a little attention to the grammar. Sometimes I see spelling mistakes, sometimes (because I am not native English) I don't.

I was going to make a joke about a hans-free phone but you stumped me with your reference to 'free text'.  Could you please clarify?

With "free text" I mean a text that the WG wants to type in her profile or on her website. In many adds she talks about herself, she hilights some services that she likes the most, she writes about her personality, what her ideas about a potential visit are, what she expects from her clients, and what the clients can expect from her. Actually any additional information that the WG wants to give.

Don't talk about yourself in the third person. For example "GinaLatina will make sure that you leave her apartment a happy man".

"I will make sure that you leave my apartment a happy man"

Something like that comes across as my English is so bad that someone else has had to write this for me. The chances are that my spoken English is so bad that it will seem as though you have spent an hour with a WG who has had her tongue removed.
