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 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

 

Who are your clients?

Clients are your bread and butter.  It is best to get to know as much as you can about men.  We are all human and we all have the same basic needs.  We all want to be heard.  We all want to feel desired and feel a physical connection with someone from time to time.  Who you meet will depend on the niche you chose and the way you market yourself.  You will have encounters with men from all walks of life.  In my career I have dealt with corporate managers, small business owners and CEO’s, professional athletes, lawyers, doctors, diplomats, and more.

Always remember that despite the size of their bank account these men have the same character traits as the rest of the general public.  A man’s financial success does not insure that he is kind, safe, or someone you want to deal with for your own health and mental well-being.  Just because they are of a high social ranking does not mean that they will be the ideal date.  It is best to wipe any ideas of Prince Charming from your mind and deal with each person on an individual basis.

Creating a safe and light environment for your client to be themselves is your primary goal.

 

Politics Of The Business

” Negative actions against you by other providers can hurt your business. If you take the high road, then any issue will blow over faster. For every one nutty provider you find,there are at least four more that are very helpful and will make you feel welcome.”  ~The Courtesan Handbook

I have been all over the US. I definitely have some favorite cities. Now that I have been based in different cities. I can tell you each is different. You will find a number of different receptions as you enter the community.

One is the ‘check her out’ welcome. You will be welcomed by the local members of the community. However, until you’re established it may take time for people to warm up to you 100%. At that point you may meet another provider or two. You may get invited to ‘meet and greets”. It’s a good way to find a duo partner if you’re looking for one.

Second is a neutral. Some cities boards and adult community are not very active. You will be interacting with clientele primarily. You may have some emailing with local hobbyist.

Finally you have the competitive welcome. This is of course where other ladies feel threatened and try to lash out at you. It is typically passive aggressive little comments on boards or gossiping to clients. I could go on and on about some of the dirty little things ladies do behind the scenes. Many of switch have no real reasoning. They are charged by emotion and fear. For that reason I always suggest taking the ‘high road’. As one friend put it “there is never a saturation of pussy”. We are all different with our own niche. There is no true reason to be competitive. It actually goes against the way of the courtesan.

In an ideal world you are there to have each other’s back. There should be a feeling of sisterhood. You are there to lend an ear in an industry few understand. With that in mind, be caring, be kind and be wise. It’s best not to let these little attacks get to you. Three little words come to mind “worry about yourself”. (and your business)
