Marketing

13 posts in this topic

It is an oft repeated cliche that the price paid for a WG is no indicator of quality of service. In many cases no doubt this is true.

But the problem that I see is that those WG at the less expensive end spend too little or next to nothing on marketing. If you can't sell your product then no one is ever going to find out how good you are.

For this and other reasons I am moving away from punting with most indies on Adult Work and going down the agency route as I find the marketing vastly superior and much more likely to get me to splash some cash.

At the same time Dr Faustus marketing can sometimes be regarded as tarting something up and selling something on image rather than substance. So whether you are buying the time of a WG or buying a chocolate bar good marketing is no reflection of how much you are likely to enjoy the porduct - and of course the marketers are taking a wadge of your cash whichever way you look at it.

In my experience agency marketing consists of flashy sites, airbrushed photos of women with overflowing bras, impossibly long legs and no blemishes whatsoever. They are full of superlatives about how hot and sexy their girls are and zero personality of the individuals they advertise. Fine, if you want to pay 40% of your punting money to this agency (and not the escort) for doing the advertising and you don't care what the woman actually looks like when she rolls up or if she actually suits your needs. 

 

It seems a really odd statement to make, that you'd rather see someone who spends money on marketing (when actually it's the agency that does that part) and that this seems more important to you than what the woman is actually like!

 

I suspect the many women who only advertise on AW do it because they don't need websites or adverts elsewhere because they don't escort full time. It seems a shame to limit your choices.

So basically rather than waste your money on escorts who do little marketing as you see it as a bit lazy you are going to only see escorts who do no marketing whatsoever. That makes sense ??

I have almost exclusively visited indies for several years and have only once used an agency (many years ago). I find no logic in your MO. Sure price does not necessarily reflect quality, but you can narrow the odds by decent research. 

 

I also think that there is a basic cost for a punt which rises with inflation. Trying to drive down the price by bartering etc will almost always lead to poorer quality of service. Good marketing does not equate to good quality service.

But that's a matter of personal choice ?  Go for it, punt with the agencies and then come back and tell us the pros and cons of doing that, because I am sure it will not be all plain sailing.

@bigjohn. You ain't gonna buy the chocolate bar if it's called Dogshit and has a snot coloured wrapper so you will never be able to judge it as you will avoid it.

@ML. The agency WGs are indirectly paying for marketing as the agency takes their cut of the girls fee. Believe me I have been scouring the local girls on AW for months and no one has taken my fancy.

@CK. Agency girls do marketing but they pay someone else to do as many large companies do

@PP. Good marketing may not equal good service but at least I am enticed to find out.

@SS. Thanks I will report back soon :) x

Isnt the marketing on AW more extensive?  You get galleries, detailed profile statements, questionnaires, movies, field reports, feedback, location details and probably more.  On agency websites you typically get airbrushed photos.  Have i grabbed the wrong end of the stick here?

Less expensive lady here...I often get told my profiles are good,I often change photos and I have and run my own website,blog etc etc...Oh it really is stereotyping day on Punternet.

What would you advise we spend on marketing?I spend around £50a month on other directories,around £7 a day on A.W...you really don't need to spend hundreds to get good business unless you only want to see guys that think only glossy studio photos and silly blurb mean you must be good at your job.Most blokes seem to prefer a clearly written and legible profile and honest photos...and some good reports.

Yes stereotyping really does no-one any good.

And I spend an inordinate amount if time marketing the ladies who work with me.

Also I think you will find that my ladies aren't all airbrushed with legs as long and tummies all tucked.

What you see is what you get.

Ce la vie

No, agency girls do zero marketing most of the time. They turn their phone on, take their bookings then go home, sometimes they pose for a few twit pics during the day. Thats the entire input they usually have in their marketing lol. There are of course girls who work for agencies and independently who do their own marketing too. 

 

 

I dont remember seeing any escorts called Dogshit Danny either. I understand if someone is marketing themselves down, as if they have no self worth etc, I can never understand that one personally, I dont think it looks attractive to be spread-eagle on the bed in your pictures with "come and do any fink you like to me" as the title but its also each to their own. I can only assume that it works for them or they would surely change their marketing and image.

Well written as usual Chloe. What I like about you is that you never "mince your words". It is always worth reading what you have to say. Keep up the good work.
