Author Topic: Is there a reason why many don't have a phone no on AdultWork?  (Read 3719 times)

Online NIK

Am I correct in thinking Awank  even charge advertisers for showing a phone number and this is why many don't? If so why the hell do they do this? Also I know at one time it wasn't possible to just filter out profiles without a phone number. When I tried to do this some years ago I'm sure there was yet again some fee involved.  :mad:

Of course in many cases it could simply because they aren't genuine.

You're still correct, there is a fee to filter to ladies just with numbers displayed. I haven't bothered with this.
Just made a hotlist and stick ladies with numbers into it for a rainy day.

I would presume if they let everyone display a number for free, the only people who wouldn't would be the scammers.
Then no-one would pay for their PGs because it would be instantly obvious they were fakes.
So AW would lose loads of money...

Interesting to hear yesterday from a Prossie,  who said AW push and heavily emphasis the PG when they set up a new profile more so than anything else. Look at all the profiles with just a PG tab, amazing business plan AW have to encourage people's fraudulent activities.

I'm not sure but I think it costs a £1.00 a day to advertise a phone number on Adultwork.

One of the WG members on here will be able to tell us the real price.

  Think i was told it cost a prossie £1 a day to show her tel no but lots are too tight / thick to pay it.I belive they can set up AW so that money from the PG pays for it.Very silly not to have a tel showing as i and i am sure lots of guys just move on to the next profile as i dont use the e mail / booking stuff on there.

Offline wristjob

I think it's £5/day - I guess one of the ladies can confirm/correct that - or that might be avail today. A tip i got ages ago was add them to the hotlist and save their phone no in notes for when they aren't displaying it. Also you can see if the number has mysteriously changed!!!

Realistically though if you are charging say 60/hh for your services then you are a loon to be unwilling to pay for a phone no. unless of course you aren't serious about what you do. I guess loads of girls setup a profile but aren't really sure if the want to work - ie timewasters.

When you think of the huge hourly rates that WGs charge and the money that they must be making every day.

It is really asinine not to spend £1 a day to advertise a phone number.

Perhaps WGs are too used to getting everything for free.

Offline Outcallguy

Or they just don't know how to use the function!

There are plenty of profiles that read "Don't email me, please phone" and have no number displayed.

I don't feel AW is as user friendly as it could be in that respect...

I saw one girl and moaned that she never said when she was working on her profile. She told me it was all in the AW schedule. There was no schedule on her profile. She was bonkers though.

I no longer display my phone number (£1 a day) because I have other commitments/do other things which made fielding lots of new phone enquiries no longer viable. Regulars still get in touch with the number they have for me, they know the score, where I am, what's on offer so it's a quick phone call to arrange a time. Before I stopped displaying my number I would pop my phone on to check messages etc and phone calls would come through, would answer and it turn into a long enquiry. Now new clients I email with their questions, and some regulars do already book using that method.  I can answer when convenient instead of  them phoning and getting annoyed I'm not answering or I don't have time to speak to them properly.

Works well, and I know of other ladies who in a similar position who do the same.

Others I can't speak for.

You are correct it is £1 per day. Not all advertise their number as you can get more timewasters/address collectors and people just looking for text ping pong or wank fodder. Of course on the plus side you probably do also get more genuine enquires too as you are easier to get hold of especially for short notice appt's.

That's pretty much the way I book with regulars and email potential new WGs,  always seems to works for me but I rarely book less than a week in advance and thus don't have to worry about phone numbers showing. Think it is more of a problem for those punters who book same day.

Could they not just put their phone in their profile text.  Instead of in the contact section. I doubt AW read every profile

I agree with your comments but I don't think it is just the cost that puts them off, some girls don't have the patience to deal with all the timewasters and phone wankers.    :hi:

Some do, but if they get reported they could get the profile deleted --------------- all to save £1.      :wackogirl:

As it costs AW money, they are far quicker to deal with that than other issues and they do delete profiles when they find them. Might be worth it for a newbie,  but if the prossie is established and has good feedback would they take the risk to save a couple of quid.

Seeing a phone number does not guarantee that the profile is genuine.

The girl pays £1 to display it and then sits back while guys buy her private gallery, money for nothing.

If you ring the number you get voicemail.

As above a girl in Cardiff told me last year that AW charge £1 a day to post phone number. Doesn't seem like much money to me though especially if it generates more work

It will no doubt be a reason why some WGs dont have a displayed number as they dont wish to pay the £1 a day it costs them. Another will be they or their pimp prefers punters emailing and/or booking through A/W. Another will be because they arent genuine and really just want punters to pay for their PG scams. ;)

Offline Ali Katt

If I can't speak to the girl, no booking, it's as simple as that. I don't care if she emails the numbers or texts it, as long as she answers calls.

Other reasons no number:
* Maid answers all calls
* She can barely speak English
* Is a crap shag, lacks enthusiasm and can't fake it on the phone
* Has an awful speaking voice
* Is at her home and doesn't want her bastards to know what she does
* PG scam or webcam only

Especially when we have punters like HP on here actually contacting A/W to alert them a WG or their pimp have put their phone number in the text, as though he is a major shareholder in A/W so its costing him money. Quite incredible that a punter would be so stupid in my view. Good luck to a WG if she can get away with it, if it costs A/W a few quid great, dodgy pricks. My advice about such profiles is if interested write the number down shartpish as its very likely to get deleted pretty quick.

AW just delete the number usually.

Quite simply pro$$ies don't like paying for things, they expect everything for free, be it advertising, housing, condoms or whatever. There's no way many would want to pay out £1 a day  :wacko:

What a cunt old HP is.

What a cunt old HP is.
You can call me a cunt if you want as I've had a few of these profiles removed as well. The reason being is they were either Romanian fakes, looked dodgy or had the usual "I don't do this or that", but no image matches, so I found another way of removing them. Nothing to do with AW getting their cut, just saving the punter from inevitably being ripped off.
