Thanks

One is doing my head in. I added a free listing and have calls every few weeks from one of their representatives to pay £150 for the year. I know its good for a year but I haven't had a single person saying "saw you on the *** directory". Previous to last call "we are now going to offer this deal to another escort instead of you as you have had your chances", me "okay, bye". Few days ago they called again "to be honest I wont be dealing with this anymore is its boring me  now", me "err, you keep calling me remember".

 

Its annoying. Seriously, threatening to take away the deal I didnt even want and exclaiming boredom? since when is THAT a good sales tactic ;p;

Yes to the op's question.

 

I always either ignore or say no thanks.... if I want to advertise somewhere then I will select and contact..... cold calling from ad sites gets them nowhere with me.  Many of them are obscure sites anyway..... most unlikely to come up easily in searches.  

 

What I do not like and has been mentioned here often...... we can find ourselves on sites who/which have not bothered asking.... just lifted our profiles and plonked them on their ads...... it can be almost impossible to update or delete them.

This I agree with although one happy day I started receiving calls from guys who found my number in a contact magazine. The guy had literally just got lots of girls names, towns and phone numbers from what I could garner and created a magazine to sell. I didnt mind this, nothing wrong with being a bit enterprising during a recession and the guys who have visited me via it have all been decent folk, dont get that many but they do pop up every couple of months. The guy who created the mag makes money, I get clients who maybe dont use online directories..thats a win win all round as far as I can see. I dont think he puts any details in as they all ask for my details x

Any idea why viva and GT are so popular?  Do they cold call?

 

Thx

Chloe I was also included in a contact mag...as were several other wgs I knew.... unknown to me until I started getting the calls.  Unfortunately my story does not match yours..... they were all time wasters.

I've been in these contact mags for years without permission, I've had a mixed bad of clients from them, Mostly timewasters and alot who always say they are coming to leeds next week but never call back and book. I have had a couple of ok guys from them. I think its worse when its online and they nick and put up vastly out of date info like George Maccoy and his ilk.

Some time ago, a well known directory site, packed with heavily photoshoped pictures asked me to pay for advertising.  I asked them if I am going to get more 'exposure' than when I was not paying.  They said 'yes' and that they are going to make a mini banner for me.  I decided to pay for a month and also pay for the banner as it sounded like an ultimatum from them 'pay or get out'.  Needless to say, no customers and..... they took the mini banner I had on my site despite making me pay for it as if they made it for me!!!!!!!

 

I guess the owner of the site run out of pocket money that month.  Probably they are still on the first page of Google when you input the major key words to find escorts.  I wonder if people do get any business from them though, as they seem to have hundreds of heavily photoshoped pictures.

Nope, I appear to be invisible to them :unsure: I'm undecided whether that's good or bad. I also don't get sent cock pictures like other ladies do :P

today I received a call from "free" mart. They offered me the fantastic deal of 4 weeks advert for £200. I asked them if plumbers and other service providers paid the same for the adverts and I got "oh no of course not, adult services is always higher it has to be" . I told him he was exploiting escorts as this service is as legal as a plumber offering his services and hung up. 

 

Im sick of escorts being charged silly money for their adverts so that others can advertise free and the directory can call themselves a free mart, why the fuck should we pay more. Sod them. I pay 19 for a month elsewhere for something exactly the same and have been offered a yearly advertising fee by the sun of £150. Niether seem a rip off to me nor extortionate, just who do these twats think they are that their paper is worth paying so much more to be in. 

 

I was rude, I shall continue to be rude to these rip off merchants

Perhaps you should name and shame them so that other escorts can avoid being ripped off by them too. I have named and shamed free mart.

I know I am on most the good sites with good traffic and frankly if I haven't heard of a listings site I am not going to part with any cash to be included. I have tried the odd free ones over the years and it's never made a blind bit of difference. 50% of my bookings come via guys doing Google searches and getting to my website or at least a directory with my ad on. 30% AW and the rest a combo of PN and a tiny handful of other sites I don't think I can mention! 

 

Just goes to show a good website with good SEO is the best bet when it comes to advertising. If you think about it if you want to know something you nearly always Google. That's what men who are looking for escorts generally start off doing and those who have specifics will Google them i.e. Busty brunette escort in Chelmsford or anal fisting escort west London or whatever. 

 

So, in a nutshell No I don't bother with any of the regular emails and calls I get asking me to advertise on a new site.

I don't like cold callers from advertising space sellers, a few choice words sends them away!
