Northern Angels
« on: December 20, 2011, 11:12:05 am »
Does anyone here know what the present 'modus operandi' is regarding Northern Angels?

A few years ago, it was one of THE places for independant escorts to operate from, but we first noticed a few months ago that the content on there has been decimated - somewhere around half a percent of what used to be on offer. We also noticed that they were now seemingly concentrating on website building, SEO and advertising, under the banner of 'Adult Promotions' for indys and agencies as opposed to marketing their own lists of escorts.

Just now, we had a call from Click Marketing on behalf of Adult Promotions, trying to sell us advertising space on Northern Angels -  the content within the call making it pretty obvious that the girl doing the selling knew all about Northern Angels operation in the past and present, leading us to believe that Northern Angels, Adult Promotions and Click Marketing are very likely the same company.

So I suppose my question is - are Northern Angels still a major force, or are they struggling, or are they dead in the water and diversifying?

Not sure if I care, but the question seems more backend promo?

Plenty of fish around anyway?!

I started advertising with NA back in summer, I basically wanted to try and seperate myself from the parlour-type-quickie-service-don't care calls I was getting. It's worked fine for me but yesterday I too got a call from Click Media. Appears NA are undergoing a trial with this way of marketting. It was annoying for me however like anyone else they are trying different things in order to expand their business.

£60 a month for an indie on NA!

Do you think you received value for money over AW? Or even having a well designed personal web page (remembering a domain can be a few pounds a year and a simple google or sim template can be as effective?)

Have you had many full member punters ie those who have paid £20 a month?

Not sure I get the benefits but interested to hear your side Strawberry

I don't quite understand the benefit for the punter in paying for £20 a month either, as AW is free as are many other sites where you can find WG's advertising.

As above I joined in an effort to get away or distinguish myself from the parlour-type experience. I was a bit fed up of getting guys contacting me who were just looking for anyone who they could stick their bits into, didn't matter where they were or if they had nice surrounds, or even provided a good service etc.

I already have/had my own website coming up on google, but also noticed NA were up there ahead of me at times. Being on a directories that appear on the front page of google(as well as your own site) is something highly recommended to and by most independent escorts. Google listings can wander about a bit, but if you are on one of the other directories you are maximising your appearance at the top of the listings.

I've not had a client admit to being a paid member, but I know I've had several bookings from guys who have found my profile there.

Being a member entitles you to look at the NA version of AW's private galleries and post on their message board. Considering the problems I'm having with my indie website, and not knowing what's going to happen to that having a profile on NA could prove to be a bit of a back up for me - whilst I get my new site going.

There is also a reports system for members on the site, I've never received one yet other girls who join appear to receive them pretty quickly.

Don't suppose my 3 recent posts could be cut and pasted into one?

So I trust you feel the 60 a month is good value!

Advice as a mobile on the move punter for your new site

Dont use flash - it prevents iphone/ipad user
Dont use mixed intl/local phone numbers ie +44(0121) .... Use the plain number as the bravkets prevents direct click dial
Use text as phone number and not an image again to allow direct click dialling
Finally - if you choose to have a mobile version allow users to see full version

My pet hates are those that dont comply - so frustrating!

I've never used flash and I've never used international format - it's only AW that insist on that. New site is going to be pretty much the same as the old one, but tidied up a little. I like things simple.

I know a couple of ladies who use NA as an advertising medium, and they're more than happy with what they get in return from it.

Given that it costs £30 on AW per month to have your number listed, it isn't that much of a difference in reality. Not everyone will bother with AW for a host of reasons, and NA, although it may have lost its lustre to some people, will still have built up a large following of satisfied users over the past decade who will see it as the first port of call when in need of a paid date.
