    My plan is to set up an escort directory for the UK and Europe. One things for sure, this market has an enourmous amount of competition, but there are simply so many independent escorts making large sums of cash out there, my guess is the market is still far from saturated.

    My problem is this, how would I go about getting them to pay for a listing on my directory?

    In terms of making an approach, I would be wary of cold calling, as they would obviously be using their personal number for "business" and I suspect they would not responds as well to general business when it comes to cold calls. I also don't want to risk getting trouble if it turns out the escorts aren't as independent as they make out, ie having a raging pimp or agency manager tracking me down.

    Do you guys have any ideas on how to achieve this? I think by charging something like £8 per week for a featured listing with a little description and 3 or 4 pics is a pretty good deal and to these women and men in the game who are making £300+ a day plying their trade, 8 quid is loose change to them. It's just getting them on board thats the problem.

    I also thought of scraping a bunch of emails from other directories and just mass sending the proposition but again, im wary of the response rate.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated, cheers.

    I have no experience with that type of site, but one idea that came to me was to find a similar site in a different location, ie not direct competition, and start asking questions about how they set it up.

    I have no idea how they'd respond, but it might be worth a shot.

    First, you HAVE to get traffic (verified through google for example)

    Then you have options

    Option 1 is to approach the massage parlors, escorts, agencies.
    This can be a pain, but can make you good money is you have the right contact

    Option 2 my personal favorite, is to promote a site that converts well for escorts.

    Best of luck

    Thanks for the great advice guys, this is a tricky one. I'd never actually thought of going and asking indirect competitors how they do this, but I've got a good twist on how this could be done to get the info from them. Brainpower do you mean promote an some kind of escort affiliate scheme or make up a seperate site that would attract escorts and convert them to my main escort site via that?

    Thanks again

    mungus: what I mean is, obtain traffic for a specific keyword (ex New York City Escorts) organically through search (google). Have that site drive / promote a product/service that caters to the escort niche...

    Better places to approach them would be to email the guys and gals that post in the classifeds.....tell them that with your directory they can reach more affluent clients and can raise there prices in the directory as a result.

    Also, use the search engines (google) to find forums where these ladys hang out. Don't directly contact them at first, but make contact with the other people on the site that are providing services like photography or setting up appointments for the "service providers". These are people who will already know which of there clients are looking to gain more exposure.

    I just bought a domain with this in mind. Funny I googled "escort directory make money" and this thread is the first thing that pops up.

    That is going to be a hard niche to bank off unless you are pimpin the hoes yourself...

    I have been in the adult niche online and made decent but my best bet would be affiliates related to escorts which may be hard to find.

    Too bad that the domain you just bought receives no searches monthly :p

    Think smarter and easier... don't make your life a pain developing a domain that gets no searches monthly.

    Tons of competition. There is also one major player already in the market, which are basically the Facebook of escort directories. You want free listings and have paid listing spots which get the escorts extra attention. You can also monetize the site by allowing escorts to sell content and take a cut from their sales. It's going to be tough to establish such a website and compete with the bigger sites already in the niche.
