Photos are one of the most important parts of your escort website. A great tagline, engaging text, and a beautiful escort website template will show clients you’re serious, but without good photos, they may pass you by. Here are five photo tips for your escort website:
1. Use Your Own Escort Photos
While it might be tempting to use a stock image of someone who looks similar to you — either to preserve your privacy or because you’re worried your own escort photos aren’t good enough — this is surefire way to lose clients and get negative reviews. A client would much rather see an accurate picture, even if it wasn’t professionally taken.
And while professional images can give your site a little extra polish, it’s so easy to take good pictures today that you don’t have to invest a ton of money to get a few good shots. Have a friend take some pictures with your iPhone and use a free image editing app like Instagram to edit them. You can even upload them directly to your Escort Design website from your smartphone with just a few clicks!
Or set up a tripod and give snapping your own photos a try. There are great tutorials online that will give you tips for taking professional-looking photographs.
2. Pick the right size
When uploading your photos to your escort website, make sure you’re keeping the file size in mind. While you want to show crisp, high-resolution images, you don’t want the photo to take so long to load that your admirers give up before seeing it. According to an online survey, nearly half of users expect a site to load in 2 seconds or less, and if it doesn’t, they’ll leave after 3 seconds.
There’s no ideal photo file size, but you probably don’t need to go above 100k. Experiment with different sizes and try reducing the file size if the photos take too long to load. If you have Photoshop, you can use the “Save for Web” option to reduce your file size by using the image quality slider. If you don’t have Photoshop, Smush.it is a free program that will shrink your file size.
3. Show Your Style
While crisp, beautiful photos will give you an edge, really set your escort website apart from the crowd by highlighting what makes you unique. Are you a BDSM girl? Pull out those whips and chains. Are you a BBW? Show off those curves. Don’t be shy about highlighting your best attributes and skills.
When you’re creating your photo gallery, upload a variety of shots, too. Try different poses, angles, and locations to keep clients engaged.
4. Preserve Your Privacy
Keeping your identity private on your escort website is important. But you can still take beautiful photos while minimizing the amount of your face you show. Try turning your head to the side. Drape your hair over your face or provocatively tilt a hat over your eyes.
If you don’t want to worry about covering your features while you take your escort photos, give blurring a try. We have a great tutorial on how to blur your face in escort photos.
5. Update Your Escort Photos Often
Get clients back to your site by updating your escort photos frequently. Just got a great new haircut? Been hitting the gym extra hard this month? Upload new photos to get your clients coming back for more.
