Blurring Your Face

There is no right or wrong on whether to blur your face. I have found over the years it doesn’t seem to make much difference either way.

I have found that some ladies are not sure how to blur their face. I personally use Photoshop to blur my own. There are a number of simple software programs that contain a bur tool. You should also be aware a number of the major advertisers offer this service at not charge. You can contact their representative or include when the request in you email with the ad content.

In addition many advertising sites have a blur tool in your account settings that you can use to blur or crop your photos.

It’s typically pretty straight forward. If you aren’t really very computer savvy. Don’t be be concerned over learning something new. It’s super easy. You got this!

Here is a previous entry on taking photos on your own. It’s a little outdated but still effective.

Your Photos On Social Media

This is directed at the ladies in the industry that blur their face for safety or personal reasons.

There are some who have beautiful photos and then blur there face. This is understandable for many reasons. The photos are gorgeous and you want to share them with people in your private life, so you post them on your personal account.  I often see them on Instagram and Twitter.

I’m not sure if many of you realize these photos are easily traceable. Programs like Tin Eye and Google Images can match the images from your professional website to those posted on a personal account. (Some blocking may prevent this) Depending on how much personal information about yourself you post on your personal social media account. This could potentially give clients, friends or family a wealth of information about your life.

If you are choosing to keep the two lives separate then keep your photos separate too. This is my chosen lifestyle. It is easy for me to not have any personal accounts. There is no right or wrong. It’s simply a matter of safety. Be aware of what you are posting on the internet. Very little is private on the Worldwide Web, so play it safe.

Have a wonderful week!

Marketing

First, let me say I apologize for not positing for some time.

Now, I realize the economy is slow right now.  You will see this anytime world events are unfolding. Of course this is also all relative to your price point. The end of the summer is also typically a slow time.  Please don’t panic ladies. This is in part why it’s always a good idea to put away money when things are more productive.

It’s a good time to look at your marketing. I have had my book criticized in regards to the marketing being incorrect or misinformed. I don’t take it personally, however it does amuse me as every city is different. There is no right or wrong way.

Your marketing should be geared to your persona, city and price point. What I call the big three are present in most cities. (P411, Eros and CityVibe) Yet, in each city clients tend to gravitate to one over the other. It’s best to do your research. Find out what clients are using more in your city. An example would be here in Las Vegas. Currently there is such a saturation of ladies some don’t pay for advertising at all.

I know ladies who do good business by using the local and national boards. They also spend time actively contacting clients they have seen before. Despite being a slow time this is very cost-effective for them, as they are not paying the cost of advertising.  Don’t be afraid to experiment. There is no right or wrong. There is only what works best for you.

Hope this find you happy, healthy and successful in life.

Marketing and Your Ego

Welcome to 2014!

In the coming year you will see new things heading your way in regards to online marketing. Beware!Don’t cater to you ego to fill someone’s pocket.

You have seen the websites who parade reviews across the world-wide web. Only then to place, or not, place you on a subjective list of supposed elite companions. You will see new sites arise doing the same. I promise you a vast majority of these sites come and go within 2 yrs maximum. These reviews and placement “do not” an elite courtesan make. They are subjective. Often the are one-sided, bought, begged, charmed or negotiated for. I encourage you NOT to be sucked in. This is catering to your ego only! This is how the advertisers get you to spend hard-earned money on sites for appearance sake, which actually bring you little to no business. Do you want to be part of the herd or do you want to stand out for your individual talents? The potential client does care about a label at the end of the day. In fact it is to your disadvantage to be anything but yourself. Yes, you are often selling a fantasy. However, there is a difference between delivering that fantasy and creating an image which promotes some higher expectation that no woman can deliver. This doesn’t nurture repeat visits.

I encourage you to do your research when spending you advertising dollar. Something that works for one escort may not work for another. Don’t be sucked in because you aren’t “featured” on every website in town. This is the industries way to cater to your ego. Words like “feature” “elite” “sponsored” “advanced placement” are all ego based to make you feel as if you are creating a place for yourself that makes you special. You are special. However, is that placement doing what it truly should. Bringing you new clients and companions. Is it really telling people who you are? Or in the end are you just another name on the list or a face on a row of photos?

I ask that you think independently. Don’t follow what you think the perceived top ladies are doing. Don’t follow something a gentlemen hobbyist tells you, because he must know what works. A large part of this business on many levels is about going with you gut. If I can be so bold, follow your heart. What it true to you? How do you want to be seen?

How do you do this? Take control of your own image and the avenues you control. Take a fresh look at your website. Does it truly make a statement about who you are? Take a look at your photos. Take advantage of a blog or personal page so that people can get to know you. Great connections make for great companions. You can catch their eye with a great photograph. You can keep their attention by starting a connection before they even contact you with appropriate content that represents you. Don’t allow them to direct you by catering to your ego.

Stay in your lane, but never stay married to a position. DO YOU!

Wishing you all the best in 2014! ~ Arden Moon

 

 

Starting the New Year with Photos

If you want a way to start the new year off right. New Photos!

A photo shoot can be fun and creative. It’s a chance to showcase the true you. Photos capture energy. What do you want your clients to know about you? Be creative. Be fun and sensual. Choose a few looks to show off the different sides to your personality.

Not only are photos a great way to show some of your inner beauty, as well as, outer. They are great for creating increased traffic to your website or ads.

I like to keep my photos current. Typically I will re-shoot every six months or a year at the most. Even if you don’t have model experience don’t worry. A good photographer will help you. Make it about feeling fun and sexy. You can never go wrong with that sort of energy.

Much Love,

Arden Moon
