Aw Charges

47 posts in this topic

Punters have no idea what AW charges

Lynn mentions on the no work thread about AW taking a cut from bookings, which she says is untrue - I have no reason to disbelieve her.

 

so could ladies tell us what AW charge for stuff like featured, available today and displaying a phone no

and what cut they take of your credits for private galleries and movies.

 

Then with that transparency we can take a view on whether AW is a rip off.

Jumping straight in here  :)

 

I think a wg could pay a lot each day/week if she chooses to maximise her presence....... 

 

daily availability

featuring

and much more...............  the other ladies will tell us... I have never paid and never will so am not the person to cite actual charges

 

the only "cut" aw take is a fraction over a third for credits earned via private galleries and/movie clips

 

It can still effectively be free to advertise on there if a lady pays for her availability green light and featuring etc out of her earned credits.

 

It costs nothing to upload a private gallery or movies so receiving a little less credits in exchange for phone number/daily display etc is reasonable.

 

I used to display my number.... ( £1 per day ) but stopped when I realised I get almost zero time wasting calls now  .... compared to a fair few per week when my number was on there.

I haven't been advertising there that long considering the amount of time I've been in the industry... however, I have found it to be rather reasonable with its charges in relation to the returns you get from it. One time I had a cancellation so paid the 5 credits for 'available today' and I got a long booking straight away from doing that, so you can use it to your advantage in certain circumstances, but apart from doing that I never do the featured positions (that's about 30 credits for the day) or things like that on there, as you have to book them way in advance and when I've done it it turns out that I'm fully booked that day already anyways so, have to turn many calls away. i have found that there is no real point in me doing those options but there is a lot to try and many features on there that I don't do like the camming / galleries / videos and I'd like to get to grips with more of those features when I next have time to have a long learning session on there.

AW is reasonable in my opinion. Many people bitch about it or think it's useless I think for WGs it's quite okay.

I probably spend about £30 a week on putting up my number and Available today when working. And every time my available today is on and my phone number is shown I get a booking no doubt.

I've noticed that if I turn on my available today at about 12am, I get a shed loads of calls the next day and most turn into bookings.

If I want to be featured in local escorts it's £1.50 per day, and if I want to be escort of the day I have to bid and the prices can be anything from £50 to £200+

AW take 30% off phone chat bookings and webcam, quite a lot but the amount of business you can get it's understandable.

No disrespect but at £300 an hour, the AW charges were unlikely to be a concern for you in terms of simply being too much out of your income so yu are not a typical AW user who may depend on, say, 8 x £60 half hour meets or hourly equivalent per working day and wouldn't always reach that number.

 

Having had a quick look at your website, I am certainly not suggesting you overcharge.

Not true; I have looked after a few SPs profiles and I do have an idea...

Exorbitant!

Why do punters need to know what AW charges? And why do they need to decide whether or not AW is a rip off?

 

Surely its up to the individual ladies to decide for themselves where they advertise and whether or not what they are charged is good value for money.

Obviously CP wants to know.

 

If you don't do anything else apart from display your phone number, AW is pretty much in line with other directories. I display my phone number sporadically to fit in with whether I'm working/contactable/busy or not. I experimented with available today and found that the few extra enquiries it brought in were not usually ones that turned into bookings, so I don't use it. I do however occasionally use featuring which can cost from £15 - 30 per day depending on how quickly you respond once they start the midnight auction, some ladies do manage to get it for less than that but I can't click my mouse quick enough for anything less than £12.

 

I find whenever I remove my number from my AW profile the number of daft calls and texts drops drastically, which was really amazing the first time I tried it. Those who already have my number use it, those who are able to pop my name in a search engine can also locate it, the remainder either email or phone me when I am displaying my number.

 

If you decide to cash in your credits AW take a 30% cut, which is why it is usually better to spend them on phone number display, AT or a feature. I've also already posted in another thread the fact that I do add my own funds if my credits are getting low.

 

Generally AW is no more expensive than any other directory, unless of course you are using featuring, AT and telephone display, although AT reduces to £2 per day if you are running as featured.

Punters do have an idea, or if they, like me, have helped with profiles.

Ditto; I have set up and maintained a number of profiles.

You may have some insight from managing a few profiles but that's it.

It's the people on Adultwork who advertise day to day who are bound to know the ins and outs.

What's "managing" a profile anyway? Does it mean you have her password and can change the contents of her profile anytime you like?

I don't see the point in a male managing a WGs profile, it's not that hard to type out a few honest sentences about yourself tick what you like sexually and take some decent pictures... Or is it for some girls? Lol! :D

Available today.

In the search if you go to the fees and availability tab you can search for girls who have paid for avail today for a date in the future.

Now as someone who plans some punts for later in the week thats useful but I frequently get no hits for even tomorrow.

Maybe ladies dont like it displayed till they are ready to start work in the morming.

I have also seen the avail today go off

One lady I see turns hers off at 5 as she does not do evenings.

There are probably quite a few profiles 'managed' by males. Look through some of the London section, same spelling mistakes, same headers, similar profiles, similar likes, similar 'names', the same excruciating girl descriptions. Then you read the feedback and find the same people were the first to review the girls.

Then they have the cheek to call themselves independent.

Does that mean you answer emails, or do the profiles state phone call only?

 

Could profiles being 'managed' by third parties be responsible for service seekers complaints that emails are read but not answered?

Not every lady on AW manages their profiles on a day to day basis, many have people who do the work for them on a one to one account basis or using the AW groups facility where one log in can maintain a number of profiles.

Simple, set up an auto reply,

Hi, for service details or bookings please use my mobile number which will be displayed in my profile on my working days only.

This is an auto reply.

There are some things that are still difficult or impossible to do on AW with a smartphone.

Indeed what you say is true, yet I spoke with several girls who charge over £200 and most said, being available today, local escorts feature etc, does not work for them and get no bookings whatsoever.  I guess AW mainly attracts people looking for girls with lower fees, as I noticed in London area.  Not sure if this is also applicable for the rest of the country.

 

Also, I find it interesting how many girls complain on AW Forum and Saafe about losing the credits they hardly accumulated in order to be taken by AW when they decide a girl is 'fake', whether she is verified or not.  Too many variations of this issue to mention all the them, but what is interesting is that AW decided to strike against the girl, choosing to believe an anonymous person, rather than investigating first her arguments and credibility.

Yeah, I've seen those but I was assuming PollyP wouldn't be like one of those "pimps" LOL! That's why I asked.

I mean I understand the pimps "managing" profiles but I didn't think that's what he was getting at?! Or am I wrong ha!

I think with those profiles it's incredbly obvious you'd think they'd put more effort in to make the profile look geniine and appealing!

I guess it depends on the individual and the time you put it up!

You're right about AW closing an account with credits in, it happened to me last summer I has £500+ just sitting there from cramming and private galleries and they pulled my profile claiming I had been reported as "fake" which is ridiculous! I literally emailed them every single day for a week until they decided to re open it and all my credits were there.

But some girls haven't been that lucky. X

So how does she answer her emails? With the money a said girl is getting from escorting she could be able to afford a second hand laptop right?!

I've seem groups and stuff like for camming, but they have access to absolutely everything! I don't think I could trust someone to do that.

I like being in control haha

What is interesting when accounts get removed is that there is always a reason and if you follow procedure generally it will be returned, one of the most important things to remember is the email account that is used to set up the profile is kept active, if a complaint is made about your account AW will send you an email explain what is going on and you only have I think 24 hours to respond, so if you don't monitor your email you will miss it, then the account gets removed, usually its about pictures. remember that just viewing your emails via your AW account will not show the emails from AW management.

Don't forget if your email accounts is not logged into for a length of time (some 3 months) they get deleted then when a punter sends an email it gets bounced back and AW will auto shut down your account, that's when the fun starts to try and get it back.

AW now has Zero tolerance, it gives a very short time for issues to be completed and its up to the account holder to jump through as many hoops as AW put in front of you, remember AW has had years of complaints about scams, rip offs, bogus accounts, bait and switch and they finely had enough!
