Author Topic: Are Adultwork Missing a trick  (Read 2692 times)

Isn't it about time Adultwork started charging for Profiles, say they charged £20 a week (That is nothing as a business expense) the female pro$$ie profiles they have is currently 18,327 so that would be £366,540 per week or £19,000,000 a year  :scare: And that's not including Couple profiles, Poofs Profiles or Cam profiles  :hi:

Ok Some of the profiles are fake ./ wasters, and the benefit is they would fuck off, thus making AW a better site for Punters and pro$$ies alike  :hi:

Only the very stupid pro$$ie would object and not pay such a small amount for what is clearly the best source of advertising. and has all but wiped out the need for pro$$ies to create their own websites.

And of course £20 cost is only £12 after tax relief for pro$$ie charging £150 per hour and getting one client a day as she would fall into the 40% tax bracket  :hi:

It's a win win win, with the only losers being the scammers (and AW off the profit they make from the scammers)

Pay sites are absolutely full of fakes.  Escort-scotland is about 70% fakes and yet every profile is listed as "verified".  The auto-censored sponsored gallery is also nothing but fakes.  So, no, pay sites do not prevent fake profiles.

The fakesters make too much money from the private gallery racket to be put off by relatively small charges  :rolleyes:

Shame, because it well pisses me off messing around with fakes and I'm sure the WG's trying to make a living are mega pissed off with fakes  :angry:

I don't think Adultwork need our advice on how to earn money, they are already making a fortune ---------- if it aint broke don't fix it.  ;)

That's what Galahad thought  :dash:

I can bet any money they will bring a charge in eventually.

And of course A/W themselves keep anything earned off fake profiles so cant lose.

In fact whats to say they dont create at least some PG scams themselves, it wouldnt surprise me, we are talking about people who clearly are not in business to help punters after all. I wouldnt trust them to do up my shoelaces personally.

Totally different.
Galahad buried his head in the sand and hoped that by banning the mention of Adultwork it would go away, it has gone from strength to strength -------------------- some pro$$ies are too tight to display "available today", I can't see them paying £20 a week for a profile.

Offline brooksey

Adultwork have been quite conservative in developing how their site runs.

They have a very sound business model, and by far the lion's share of the UK online prostitution market.  They would be daft to change anything too radically, too quickly. They are not daft.

Offline James999

That's a fair point and in reality getting pro$$ies to pay for anything is like getting blood from a stone.

And even if they did agree to pay even £5 a week probably only a small percentage of them actually have bank accounts, and of them many will not want to use the account for fear of loss of benefits / Tax issues.  :hi:

Offline brooksey

Yes, actually getting girls to cough up real cash isn't going to work.

Instead they get them to fund displaying their number/availability via PG sales etc. thereby generating even more revenue.
It's really very clever. 

The goose that lays the golden egg, and all that.

They need a bloody site redesign. They've got something that looks like it was made in the 90's.

I don't agree, the site is functional and lets you access the information easily in a clear format, far to many webdesigners spend ages "being clever" with web design and you find they may look good but not functional, take ages to load and navigate.

I want a site that gives me the information, not one that shows me how clever the web designer is  :hi:

Quite right, it is light years ahead of auto-censored ---------------- you can specify everything in your search, area, age and services.  :)

the reason why its successfull with escorts is because its free to set up your profile page
there is no inital outlay 
 
Trust me if most of the escorts that advertise on there had to pay 20 -30  a week they wouldnt, 
a fair percentage bulk at doing additional advertising when its quiet so cant see them pay 100 a month for a profile

and you do pay   ie if you want to show your number /website link  then its 1 a day 30 a month same as auto-censored

So why doesn't every WG have a Moonfruit or Wordpress website? after all, they're free as well.

Many AW pro$$ies can't even spell their name let alone set up a website.   :wackogirl:

The same applies to punters, if I had to pay a membership I would never use AW ----- but I spend about £60 a year on private galleries.

Seems they have got it sussed then, I am amazed that Galahad never picked up on the idea and even if he copoed them in hte early days he could have been the main player, but he used the head in the sand approach  :dash:

It is all too easy to get complacent, like a jockey not looking over his shoulder on the run in ----- too late now, auto-censored will never regain it's crown.

Offline James999

I agree, but when the Jockey sees the other horses going past he would react, where as Galahd appeared to just pretend they were not there, what  must be frustrating for him is that if he had reacted as they "ewent past" he could easily have regained the lead, but it is to late now.

Because even though moonfruit is free that all it is,a website template, you have to contact other website and directories and swop  links and banners, you still have to market the website, it get it out there and get it found all that takes time and effort
  With adultwork you have a ready made client base even the most illerate pc user can and do set up a profile within a few hours   
 
its pretty simple to use everthing is done for you  you dont have to think about  what look right/ dosnt look right and are the banner /links in the right place  you just register put up some price /photos and off you go 

Some of the escorts who are makeing money all the time or regularly would probably pay to stay if it turned into a pay site just to have a profile but a lot would probably just not bother, it would discourage newbies and a fair amount of escorts trying to set up /start up if they had to pay xxx for something

Thats why its popular for new escorts,  its free or appears to be free,   although its not when you take into account the cost of showing your number featuring your profile, ect ect

Maybe they copied the business methods of Ryanair, advertise a flight for 99 pence and you end up paying £69.   :dash:

Ryan air is my pet hate - sadly i often need to use them to get to Ireland  :dash:

And it's Shit, the only reason Pro$$ies use it is because they are to tight to spend a few hundred quid on a proper site  :bomb:
