Welcome to another installment of our Escort Spotlight series, where your fellow escorts share insights into the escort and adult entertainer industry. Keep reading for Sunny’s tips on promoting her escort business, her favorite show about a single mom who’s also an escort, and more!
Q: In what ways do you promote your escort business? Which of those has been the most successful for you?
A: Online directories mostly. Eros is pricey but the best. Local weekly papers if they have an adult section and getting on forums.
I also try direct sales — I just talk to a gentleman in a bar or club, letting him tell me about himself first so I can feel him out to see if there’s potential. Then if I feel he might be interested, when he asks about my occupation I tell him in a very discreet and tasteful way! Guys are always shocked and curious by this and when he starts asking more questions, I say “why don’t you try it and find out!”, give him a card and …
Q: What’s your favorite feature of your Escort Design website?
A: Well, there’s so much to like! I love the many cool and contemporary web templates to choose from and the fact that you’re always adding new ones. A lot of other places offering sites for escorts look cheesy or tacky or all the same style but not Escort Design! Also that you can customize your site if you know a bit of code, too! I also like the built-in screening form!
Q: What new features would you like to see in the future?
A: I would love for there to be a feature available so clients can put down a deposit for their booking (helping to eliminate no shows) or even pay in full right on the site after booking. Something like Bookfresh or Acuity would be great.
Q: If you could give one tip to escorts, what would it be?
A: Have fun but save and invest some money. And have an exit plan!
Q: What’s your favorite movie?
A: I don’t have a favorite movie, but I do like the online TV show on YouTube and Hulu called “Blue.” Julia Stiles plays a single mom who works as an accountant by day and an escort by night. It’s a very honest and respectful portrayal of an escort and Julia Styles plays Blue as an intelligent complex real person. I hope it gets developed into a full cable TV series!
