    Perhaps someone in the adult business can help.

    I have almost three years of escort booking experience, which is like a lifetime in the adult business. :) I used to work for a couple agencies and an independent provider in the past and did quite well. I was very thorough in my screening; none of the ladies I worked with ever got busted. Unfortunately the provider I worked for retired last summer and the agencies closed their doors, so I eventually moved on to other things.

    Right now I'm at a crossroads. The contact work I do for a vanilla business is dwindling and I need cash. I'm considering a move back into the escort business. Because I know how to run an agency, the most obvious answer is to open one of my own, but I lack the resources to launch properly.

    Any ideas on how to market my service to agencies or escorts who may need an experienced, reliable booker? I placed a few ads on Backpage but haven't received any solid leads.

    I received a PM this morning from a member regarding this thread. Sorry, I don't have enough posts to reply, but thank you for your advice.

    Just a quick update: I started an agency with another woman a few weeks ago. So far we have a few girls but desperately need more. I've done some advertising on the usual adult classifieds (BP, Sexy Jobs, various adult directories). The response has been positive but I'd forgotten how flaky these women can be. I hired one experienced escort last week and she provided a copy of her driver's license and everything. She flaked on not one, but two multi-hour appointments. Very frustrating.

    I'm contemplating hiring recruiters at this point and giving them a one time fee for each woman they bring in and who actually takes appointments. I realize there's a ton of webcam recruiting jobs out there but very few escort recruiting jobs. Does this sound like a decent idea? Any feedback on this is much appreciated.

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately cam sites won't work because I am recruiting for a specific area (Southern California) . Cam models are usually listed by country, not state. I'm trying to steer clear from approaching women on social networking because there are a lot of females on these sites that are underage. Plus you never know who might get offended enough to try to report you to the authorities.

    I am actually blowing up on Facebook with well over 600k++ adult page fans going into a web cam site venture. I am in Chicago. I need to recruit web cam girls by the thousands. What resources did you come across. Also, I have a stripper site that I never completed or launched, but I was as well thinking about doing some escorting work. I actually have a handful of girls that are ready to work in that area. Web camming as well, but I am looking to recruit in the tens of thousands eventually. Any advice or updates on your work would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Are you launching your own webcam site or opening a studio on an existing site? I have seen webcam recruiters post ads on Sexy Jobs, Backpage and local alternative newspapers, although you might find those places a little saturated.

    for eg. tagged kinda sites got option to list people online based on age and also if you join with your required area zip it will show the ones around your area so kind of targeted. u can add them as friends and then along with a hi or a simple msg and as ps..ur ad text which look like siggy will do it right ;)

    Thanks but I think I'm going to avoid this method for now. But I do appreciate your help.

    You're in SoCal.....you've got ready access to the porn industry and plenty of second and third tier or somewhat-amateurs porn actresses that escort on the side. Have you made any direct contact with those people? If you can get one or two signed-on, they'll tell friends also in or around the porn biz and you should be able to get more talent.

    I'm sure you probably already do this, but contacting advertisers/providers on CL and BP yourself and selling them on the benefits of working for an agency instead of freelancing out of their apartment or working for their boyfriend/pimp could net a few.

    You might try the website USA Sex Guide and look around there some for talent or leads from people who can direct you to available talent. You'll see who is a free agent and those who are already working for an agency.

    Yes I have contacted several porn actresses. Most are unrealistic about their rates. Hobbyists aren't always that impressed with porn actresses. These women want to charge $1500 and above for an hour. Unfortunately at that rate you don't get much work, even with tons of marketing. There are gorgeous escorts with tons of reviews that charge less than half of that. Just check out Eros Guide.

    I have not contacted individual escorts on BP because most of them are being controlled by pimps and/or are using fake pics. So you truly don't know who you're talking to.

    In addition to the methods we're currently using, my partner and I have decided to enlist the help of recruiters to help. If anyone is interested, PM me. You'll receive a finders fee for any escort you bring us who successfully completes four appointments.

    All my hard work has paid off. I've recruited quite a few ladies after my last post.

    hey valleyd,

    I'd be really interested in talking with you about some ideas... I have a few I would like to bounce off of you that relate to what you are doing (but don't cross over into running an agency or starting a site) more along the services side..
    let me know if that would be cool (cant pm yet) but if you are open to chatting, I'll get you my contact info...

    thanks too!

    (great to read your followup...)

    Unless you are connected to local Mafia, I would not even think about it. The Chinese gangs control this market and they don't play games.

    Operating an agency in your own backyard is complicated enough. I wouldn't venture off into other countries. How are you going to move large amounts of cash between Singapore and your country (United States maybe?) without getting caught? Do you speak Malay or Mandarin? Sounds like a logistical nightmare and way too risky.

    This forum really does go into the height of depravity. What has any of this crap got to do with online marketing or real business. This is just pure sad desperation for money.
