There are lots of reasons why men, women or couples seek the companionship of an escort, but how do you know which ones make reliable clients?
When you work for yourself, time is money so make sure it’s not wasted with dead-end clients by doing the following:
Manage Your Expectations:
There’s no doubt about it, time-wasters can be a real drain on your energy and finances but clients who repeatedly change or cancel appointments (or even just fail to show up) are an annoying occupational hazard.
Limit the frustration they cause you by remembering this.
In most cases, it’s an issue of fantasy vs reality; they love the idea of spending an afternoon in your company but when it comes to the crunch, lack the courage or currency to actually turn up and pay you.
Don’t take it personally.
Manage their expectations:
Time wasters aren’t just those customers who fail to turn up.
They’re the ones who look for either titillation or clarification by pestering you with endless questions or calls.
Limit this by creating a detailed online profile.
By being clear on the most commonly asked questions; your location, age, appearance, availability and the service you provide, you won’t waste time responding to messages or fulfilling a caller’s fantasies for free.
Be wary of smooth talkers:
Some clients who woo you with promises of paid trips or upcoming gifts are genuine; in fact they’re the kind of wealthy, respectful, reliable client a lot of escorts dream of.
But some customers who promise the earth have no intention of giving it to you … they merely offer you sweet nothings to secure your availability, or persuade you into giving them ‘extras’.
Never let a client waste your time more than once:
Life intervenes and, sometimes, clients end up wasting your time through circumstance and not malice.
It’s important to be flexible and accommodating for clients. As a rule of thumb, if somebody wastes your time, accept their apology once – and no more.
If you allow someone to waste your time, they will do it again.
Don’t get angry; maintain a good reputation by keeping your cool and respectfully telling them that you’re too busy to fit them in and recommend that they contact another escort.
Any client can become a time-waster:
Don’t assume that once you’ve built a relationship with a client they will respect you too much to waste your time.
Some clients can slip into a comfort zone where, quite unintentionally, they begin to forget that you’re a professional person and start to treat you with less respect.
Be aware of the relationship turning sour and nip any time-wasting in the bud as soon as it starts to develop.
Keep it professional:
Using a reputable online provider like Vivastreet can help you to screen the time-wasters.
Dedicate a number to your escorting and never give out any personal information about yourself.
With the Viva Protect service, we replace your real number with an anonymous one, which routes calls directly to you. Read more about this service in our safety centre -FAQ section.
The client will never see it and the service is completely free, which helps you to keep your personal and professional lives separate.
