I have written a lot of blogs on Escort Advertising since the closure of Backpage in April 2018. Australian Escort Ads and Escort ads in general, how to best utilise escort ads, your escort brand and so forth
This past year has been rough for advertising options. I have been expecting something awesome to be released but I am still waiting lol
All we seem to have been offered is cheap templates that look like Backpage and very little else. Please, can some tech companies notice us & create us something innovative?
Twitter is free as is Instagram and Snapchat – these can be a big drain on your time and not bring in much in the way of clients but a good place to network and see what others are doing with their marketing. Twitter can be a cesspool and has a lot of catfights, I personally find twitter is best to watch but never participate
Free Escort Ads
These sites all have paid options to give your ads more visibility (top placements, things like that)
Also a newish site (started late 2017) – I like the design and easy to use at the moment it is free but they will start to charge when they are the first page of google
New Site that was created in April 2018. It’s a cute site with friendly management. It’s easy to sign up for and use
Not a well-known site in Australia but the naughty networks sites are excellent and easy to use + foreign gents will probably use them overseas so may take a look at Australia too
Not used much in Australia but free is always good. Mostly overseas users. Don’t add a WhatsApp number or you will be inundated with timewasters
Paid Escort Ads
My Personal Favourite! Excellent site with helpful and friendly staff and zero tolerance for dishonest advertising. If you are an escort who doesn’t want to be on a site filled with fake profiles & managed ladies (fake privates) then Available Angels is a great choice. I love that Available angel constantly innovate with cool features and fun imagery. The owner Eden is lovely too!
Made by a SW for other SWers with some cool and innovative features, Available Angels isn’t greedy so you won’t see them charge or try to sell you crap you don’t need like some of the other greedy b*stards directories (not naming names but everyone knows who they are lol)
Whilst I am not a fan of the review culture, it exists. PP forums can be a good place to chat plus read a different perspective. Yes men are pigs but overlook that & you can get some good intel
Membership is around $10 a month Most SWers hate the site but then no site is perfect for everyone. I personally used Punterplanet for years and found it excellent. There was always good clients from PP too
I use paid advertising on PP as there is a lack of agency advertising options in Australia. PP was one of the only ones that allowed us to advertise honestly. Andy who runs PP is always helpful and I have personally found him great
Escorts and Babes
Good Entry-level pricing but it can add up! Its position number 1 on google for a lot of keywords and locations but the UX is hard to use and it’s hard to find yourself on this badly designed site. They have great SEO tho
The original Australian Private Escort site. The go-to ad site for many of the older clients who like what they know rather than using Google
When I had an escort agency I occasionally represented independent escorts who do both their own independent bookings as well as bookings with Agency Atlantic. Private Girls are fair and decent so they will allow a girl to be independent and also allowed to work with me which is the way it should be. Escorts can decide for themselves how they wish to work & if I have no problem with it then how can an advertising site choose what is right for the escort?
An advertising site is for advertising
See my blog named ‘forced to choose‘ where I talk about an ad site making a lady choose me or them… It’s F8cked & unfair and the lady lost a considering amount of $$s due to this ad site. Escorts should be allowed to have as many revenue streams as they wish and it should be a ladies choice how she wishes to work
If you are a new site & would like to be listed on this page please get in touch. I will not list poor quality sites tho, sorry
If your site is crap, I won’t be listing it & I do check the usability + DA & PA (don’t know what those are then you should close your directory now lol)
Please Do not Spam my Twitter Feed or DM me as I do not receive twitter DM’s
I do not promote Scarlet Blue as a good advertising option for Escorts. Scarlet Blue is the sly fox of escort advertising in Australia
I, like many others, see them for what they are. I have been around a long time and have watched them from the start creating themselves a monopoly
If a site is claiming to be ‘privates only’ they should at least ensure girls are actually private! Everyone is well aware that only a small percentage of Scarlet Blue advertisers are truly independent but SB does not care who is private and who is pimped. It’s all about the money, honey! Scarlet Blue are raking it in!
It would be easy to add an Escort Agency Category to Scarlet Blue and allow honest advertising but Scarlet Blue is greedy.
Scarlet Blue is fine with escorts giving a high percentage of their fee to a Pimp, Mentor, Madam, Manager or PA just as long as the same photos are not on an escort agency site. They can make more money selling individual profiles rather than selling 1 profile that benefits a group.
SB wants agencies sites to come offline as they compete with SB on Google & also compete for clients. If Agency Atlantic comes down I can buy a separate profile for every person we represent (damn that would be costly) but it would mean more money for SB lol
Scarlet Blue has vilified Escort Agencies so now agencies have been renamed as ‘mentors’ or ‘PA services’ or ‘Executive Assistants’. Agencies and Brothels can both buy profiles on SB as long the same details can’t be found on an Escort Agency Website. It’s fine if they ladies are listed on brothels just not Agencies? Go figure lol
Escorts are afraid to speak against Scarlet Blue as this is a way to get kicked off the site as has happened to ladies in the past
I am not being a Bitter Betty because I can’t advertise
I don’t agree with the way they work, how they enforce their rules and take advantage of escorts
They are an advertising site so their role should be to do advertising & honest Advertising would be nice too 🙂
I have watched Scarlet Blue from when they started about 4 years ago (it looked like a copy of Jonslist but was a lot more basic). They were smart in their marketing for the start but their site was average. The ‘owner’ a former sex worker made girls escorts feel like they were a part of a community.
The site was pretty basic for about a year then it had some big changes, I assume it was a cash injection & new directors. The site had new features created (coding is costly) & their SEO got good!
I must hand it whoever is behind the Scarlet Blue Brand & SEO strategy; They are Brilliant!
If you run through an SEO checklist of what a site needs to do well on Google, they have added all the things and they get their paid advertisers to do the work!
- Whoever thought of charging a monthly fee for advertising and at the same time getting escorts to do your promotion for you is genius!
- Having escorts write blogs of unique content for your site rather than paying a content writer, Clever AF!
- Getting girls to allow you to spam their twitter feeds with photos promoting the Scarlet Blue brand. Brilliant!
- Setting up a website business where escorts can buy a website thinking they have their own website when it’s just another way to promote the Scarlet Blue Brand. Very Smart!
- Creating Categories & selling them to the highest bidder; a great revenue raiser!
SB is so flooded with profiles that ladies were finding it hard to get noticed. So Hooray SB helped by creating categories; FYI Categories are keywords which help Scarlet Blue’s SEO and help users search but it is a great way to raise revenue if you can get escorts to pay for them 🙂
Scarlet blue is not a good advertising option is because they do not have the advertisers best interest. They are all about keeping the SB monopoly. They say they have clients and they want gents to stay using Scarlet Blue rather than be a an advertising site that compliments an Escort’s Individual Escort Brand (I will blog on this very shortly) and the clients become a client of an escort
Scarlet Blue Advertising does not enhance your Escort Brand, it detracts from it!
Having your own site, using other ad sites and getting quality website Backlinks is the best long term strategy rather than helping Scarlet Blue with their monopoly
This list was updated 18 April 2018 – I have been blogging quite a bit on Escorts Ads, websites and SEO; check out the Escort Ads category
No matter whether you are doing free ads or paid ads
