That's today's topic. I had gone months with very little stress for the first time in years.
Oh how amazing that was. It was so relaxing to just be working, paying bills on time, spoiling myself and planning for my upcoming tour.
I hadn't felt so confident and fancy free in years. Then WHAM FOSTA/SESTA happens.
Fortunately for me I do have my web design business and assisting business.. but it has really left me stressed and trying to maneuver things for my upcoming tour. I am hoping and praying that Eros and Slixa, P411 and other ad venues stay up long enough me to be able to pull of my tour and retire in peace.
It is tough telling others to be calm and to not worry when I myself have concerns, however I do know that I am blessed to have a secondary income. I know it is absolutely horrifying for others at this time. So I definitely don't want to come off as a griping , when I have lots to be grateful for. I just know that touring when you aren't even sure what ad venues are still going to be helpful is a bit unnerving. But I am not a quitter and have already invested so much money and time into planning this , that it must go on.
However, the schedule may change. For that I am sorry and apologize but I have really had to kind of mentally regroup for more than one reason.
This last month I have been so very busy with website work, assisting etc ( again no complaints, please keep hiring me lol) that I have become mentally exhausted and needed to take time for me lately. I often just get so consumed with being everyone else's answer and voice of reason that I forget I need self care and help sometimes myself. If I seem rude, or came off
rude to any of you. I am not meaning to be rude. It is just that many of you are stressed out, and anxious and scared ( I get it) but that stress then comes with you when you contact me, or begin doing business with me and I am not a rush type person. I am an organized, calculated,take my time and do it right kind of person. I do not like to feel rushed or pressured. As companions
yourselves those of you reading this I am sure you can understand that.
So my matter of fact demeanor and me politely reminding you to give me time and space to do my job is not me being rude. It is me keeping my mental and physical health in tact which is something I have to do.
Let's all pray for a less stressful week and compassion for each other as we move forward in our daily regimens. This too shall pass...
READY YOURSELF FOR FOSTA/SESTA
Terms we probably shouldn’t use
Girlfriend experience ESCORT, courtesan
Girlfriend companionship I am not sure about as companionship isn’t illegal
Fetishes is a hard one because unless its domination Id still be careful doing a list.
HOWEVER I have already been suggesting this. You may be able to slide through the cracks with separating things you enjoy on a separate page from where your rates are.
Be sure your rates page is clear that is is strictly for time and companionship.
That no fees are in exchange for ANY physical interaction.
If you want to advertise on your site PSE or have your reviews up , I recommend making them password protected and ONLY providing password information to those who you know and can trust. and have screened.
I would remove ALL nude images from your site, all images of sex toys from your sites.
I also encourage you to sign up for things like
and various other background check and screening services to be able to check up on people should they make it illegal for us to use our escort verification sites.
AS FOR WEBSITES HOST THEM OFFSHORE. BE SURE THAT WE ALSO BEGIN SOON AFTER SEEING HOW GOOGLE HANDLES THINGS TO CLEAN OUT THE
TERMS FROM OUR SEO ALSO, GONNA SUCK BUT I THINK WE SHOULD
IF ASKED ABOUT YOUR WEBSITE YOU CAN ARGUE THAT YOU TRAVEL ABROAD AND THAT IT IS NOT ILLEGAL TO PROVIDE SERVICES
IN COUNTRIES WHERE IT IS STILL LEGAL. IT MAY EVEN BE GOOD ON ALL SITES TO INCLUDE THE TERM INTERNATIONAL EVEN IF YOU
DONT TRAVEL JUST AS AN ADDED PROTECTION.
If you have not get yourself encrypted email offshore/
we have also been encrypting any new sites we’ve been doing as of last week.
Also teach yourself and your clients the importance of using VPNS it cloaks you
And allows you to see websites , escort sites banned by the US.
There is an escort section on the Dark Web
Use TOR to find the dark net.
VPNS I suggest are the one Opera Browser has built in
As well as NORD VPN, paying them can be funny tho if you have a bank that
Doesn’t like overseas transactions. Google VPNS till you find one you like.
REMEMBER , THE LAW WILL MOST LIKELY NOT GO INTO EFFECT UNTIL JAN 1 2019
BUT IT COULD GO INTO EFFECT IN 90 DAYS, LET’S GET READY JUST IN CASE LADIES.
IF THERE WERE TYPOS I APOLOGIZE I WAS RUSHING TO GET THIS READY TO BE HELPFUL.
Lets all pray for the best but be prepared for the worst!
FIRST I ASK THAT ALL OF YOU RAISE YOUR VOICES, AND TAKE THE TIME TO TRY TO STOP THESE TWO PROPOSED
LAWS. THESE LAWS THAT ARE CLOAKED AS BEING PROTECTIVE AND LIFE SAVING , ARE ACTUALLY THE OPPOSITE.THEY ARE DEATH SENTENCES. BUT THE PRIVILEGED,RICH POLITICIANS AND CELEBS ARE TO LOST TO UNDERSTAND THAT. OPPOSE AND CONTACT YOUR SENATORS AND REPS!
This is a Co-Ed blog entry.
I am going to start with tidbits (due to upcoming,insane,laws)
with the info for the men.
Men, I know you all have gotten comfortable with the current way of doing things. But that is
quickly changing. While I hope the current proposed anti-trafficking laws do not come to affect
us willing, consenting adults, it is likely that they may.
Under the proposal anyone, site owner etc who allows facilitation of trafficking can be imprisoned for up to 10 yrs. So many of the sites you all love like Backpage, Craigslist, Twitter, and who knows maybe even Google search itself may have to eliminate your ability to find your adult companions, escorts.. who I know so many
of you enjoy.
While Eros, Slixa, RS-AVS (rs2k), and other sites seem to be ok for now...
I encourage men to get used to the following ideas.
Begin using a VPN to search the net for companions,
Good paid VPN Nord
Good free VPN found through opera browser
ALSO DOWNLOAD TOR its a great browswer for going underground.
You may need to begin searching the dark net, and overseas escort sites to find us.
Get used to using DUCKDUCKGO instead of Google search.
You are going to have to get used to finding alternate methods of finding us on the net , and we are going to have to find different ways to provide you the info.
I am taking my own advice, I am practicing what I preach as I give you this advice
Get a passport and prepare to travel IF you can prepare to travel.
If you cannot afford to travel, offer FLY ME TO YOU arrangements and let the men cover the costs.
Do your research, while we can still find adult sites in Google search, look up, make notes and save info for all the good top results INTERNATIONAL Escort ad sites.
Get your profiles started on those sites.
In your profiles on those sites include your website and if you are a US based girl be sure your site states where you are so that the guys stateside who are forced to look on the International sites can still find you and book you.
If you do not have a site already, I do encourage getting one or creating one yourself. Just for it to become your ad ,in the event they remove most of our ad sites.
When you get a site its time now to host it offshore. BE CAREFUL, DO YOUR RESEARCH, do NOT just go with just any overseas company. Many are not legit.
Godaddy has European and Asian Servers available and Underhost.com is overseas and great.
We may have to become more covert when the time comes and make our sites seem like NOTHING but companionship sites.. for our state site searches. I personally at some point may create myself a "Little miss innocent" site just for US and then once the clueless guys contact me "reel em in like fish" Similar to what many of us already do on regular dating sites... to get
TEACH YOUR CLIENTS WHERE TO FIND YOU AND THE REST OF US, ENCOURAGE THEM TO DO THE STEPS I MENTIONED ABOVE TO STILL BE ABLE TO FIND US.
ladies you also need to GET Nord VPN, or use Opera Browser free VPN AND download TOR
get familiar yourself with DUCKDUCKGO for searches.
BE INFORMED WHEN PAYING FOR AD SITES, ask them how they plan to handle and deal with the proposed new laws , BEFORE you sign up and pay.
Be prepared for the worst , so in the end you can still do your best.
After dealing with what has to have been the worst all around web/assistant client I have had in all my yrs of helping ladies in the industry , I must add the following to my work rules.
1. I do not care if you pay me a million, at no time will I put up with anyone's verbal or emotional abuse. Especially when they are not willing to sit down and do the work and make an honest contribution to their own business. I do not tolerate disrespect from anyone.
2. If you do not follow directions OR if you do not do as you , yourself have agreed to do in regard to you web content and in the format requested. THEN ANY MISHAPS are your fault not mine.
3. If after several warnings ,in writing you do NOT supply me and my partner w things we have asked you for / and or you are belligerent, disrespectful or behave like a spoiled child ...and IF it is beyond the 15th of the month..YOU ARE NOT , WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO ANY REFUND It is up to you to be organized, to have some sense of direction and to do as asked to help your project along.
4. Let me repeat an earlier one again.... I do not care if its a million you have paid me. I have protected more girls, done more for the sex work community than some of you troublemakers ever will. My reputation is solid and I WILL NOT BE TALKED TO CRAZY OR DISRESPECTED by any of you.
Basically be sure you can behave like and adult and be a respectful adult before you hire me. Otherwise it will not work.
** I never want to come off as unprofessional, or lose my temper or my cool, but I have spent many years in these trenches, and I have earned my respect and I simply will not tolerate anyone, no matter who they are disrespecting me, when it is THEM who was NOT organized.***
I pride myself in being professional. Anyone I have made a site for knows this. I have even had one lady months ago that I did a site for, who did not have a vision who I completed a site for. She afterwards didn't like it so I redid it for her, but this was more a colors and arrangement issue. This overall even though it was a new design was politely handled by both myself and her. She tipped quite graciously and even apologized for her lack of input in the beginning. This kind of behavior is not an issue.
Here is what is an issue. When you have no vision at all. No idea what a website should even be and you tell me and my partner your brand and we NAIL IT and make you something so beautiful , that other ladies comment and say they are even jealous of. I mean a site that is amazing beyond compare. Probably one of the best we have created and you use said site for over a month and then return with enough edits to equal in TIME a whole new site almost in time and frustration.
We release sites 2-3 days prior to their completion so that things like this can be handled pre-site release. I try to be fair on pricing for edits. The first 45 days so long as its simple edits, the edits are free. Then afterwards if they aren't simple or even in the 45 days if they aren't simple there is a fee. BUT it still needs to be edits within reason because when it becomes edits that will take up to 2 days to complete , I and my partner have to charge more. It is not robbery, it is compensation for my time and his.
There are times when even for money the amount of frustration will cause me to step back from a project. I am a professional YES, but I also book and screen for other ladies and also have other web assignments to tend to. I cannot lose or upset all my other clients due to being overwhelmed by one. I need all ladies I work for to be considerate of my time. Do not treat me or my partners time , or us as people the way some of you complain hobbyists treat you.
Some of you pay , (and pay a beyond fair rate in today's website and booking assistant arena) rate for my services and then honestly proceed to try to make me do double the labor for the amount we agreed upon. That is not fair or professional and is similar to how clients pay us as companions and then want services we don't provide or are disrespectful to us because we are sex workers.
I take what I do for all of my customers seriously, But I need you to respect my time and my partners time. And to realize that I work for many and that I have to HAVE to give my best to all of those customers not just one person.
I want every future customer to understand my process from now on , so that I never have to speak on this again.
Storm aka Char
I know you all know me to be a fair, genuine ,professional web professional and escort.
As we all know the rights of everyone on the internet are being challenged and I am sure most of you all are aware by now of the new ridiculous laws that will pretty much make it illegal to host sites of sex work, our websites etc on US soil.
I offer most of you hosting thru me and will continue to do so. BUT I will have to move all our sites offshore to ensure myself as well as all of you, do not end up having our sites shut down.
I host close to 20 sites. Transferring hosting offshore is not going to be an issue BUT paying migration for every site to servers will cost up to 100 per hour per site.
I am giving this email notice to you so that you all can be prepared to contribute 100 towards moving your site offshore. Id love to be able to afford to pay migration for everyone but its just not possible.
Once I find out the safest, best offshore hosting company who I feel I can trust with my business I will contact you all to share the info.
Its a damn shame we cannot work and thrive in peace. The US govt really sucks now days.
I will be emailing you with an update by the end of next week.
But this is something we must do to protect everyone site and our right to work.
Ill be in touch, with options as soon as I can.
Storm of Taken By Storm
( CLICK LINK BELOW)
I give all of you the option to wait it out. I just need to make you aware so that should anything occur prior to when we expect. I am not to blame if sites disappear. I plan on moving mine early and back them all up. I will backup everyone elses too. But since we have no way of knowing when or why i wanted to inform.
I didn't want to wait till it possibly happened and then have everyone wondering what occurred.
I am a day late. But here we go, Storm's tips on social media.
Lately the main question I have been asked by ladies I build sites for and assist is how to use Twitter, Instagram etc to their benefit.
First here is a link to a list of helpful Twitter posting tools should you decide you need automated messages ... TWITTER TOOLS
Ok got that out of the way. Now How I personally use social media and what I suggest to ladies or gents that I help or consult for.
( I literally have 10 social media accounts of my own that I try to pay attention to regularly through the week)
I also do social media management for 2 other people.
Step one: Make your social media ( especially Twitter attractive) Meaning set up a visually stimulating header, please don't leave the header blank.
Step Two: Choose a nice profile pic, or if your'e a non sex work business a nice logo graphic .
(as for the header image I suggest changing it up every 3 months atleast for sex work to keep it fresh)
Step three: I know some of us don't have alot to say but try to post atleast 3-5 tweets a day. If you have nothing to say post a nice pic or two.
Step four: Use hashtags, keywords atleast once a day that are relevant to your brand or site SEO.
Step five: On Twitter especially I suggest opening your profile so that you can be retweeted, it helps build followers. If an escort you can also elect in some cases to leave it private and make gentlemen pay for access.
Step six: In the profile bio area, include an enticing tagline, links to your site and any other links you can fit it. Make it appealing.
Step seven: Retweet others , when you see an interesting post, retweet it this helps you get more followers.
NOW Instagram, My second favorite social media avenue
DO NOT POST ANY NUDITY on Instagram, they will delete your account.
Instagram is simple
1. Post enticing, nice pics of yourself, food, travels.
2. Try to post atleast twice a week.
3. Again the power of the hashtag, make your hashtags relevant to your brand and SEO.
4.In your bio, again make it unique, catchy and include your weblink.
Lastly, don't be scared of social media, use it to build your SEO and to reach more potential clients.
I worked since April or March of 2017 for a NY Spa called Hiyako Spa New York, the owner also owns Sapporo Spa NY. I as any of you who know me, know it goes without saying worked hard, and dedicated to keeping all her ads up, created a Twitter account for her, advised her on which ad sites to use , so on and so on. I held her credit card info, (NEVER MISUSED IT) and placed and paid for all of her ads for her.
This went on for months and in the beginning she was very kind and good to me as well. Now keep in mind my weekly assistant fee is 200 a week, period( unless I also created your site as part of my best assistant package then yours in monthly). However because she had done some things for me that were helpful I allowed her as a show of gratitude to only pay 200 a month . ( I WILL NEVER MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN, ESPECIALLY AFTER THIS)
At any rate as my site states, YOU MUST GIVE ME 30 DAYS prior notice of cancellation of a service or you OWE me for the next month. I always for my financial sake and the sake of my family need 30 days notice to readjust my budget and expenses. I realize she may have been used to just letting other people go that worked for her , however my boundaries and guidelines are publicly noted and CLEAR.
The only way I even found out that her spa closed was when it was time to do the EROS renewal for the SPA, I paid it (w her card) then as always contacted her to let her know her renewal had been completed. She then ONLY texted, that they were closed, There was no explanation, no conversation on my job with them or my services not being needed. I then sent SEVERAL texts, emails and called for clarification and she still after a month REFUSES TO ANSWER , BE PROFESSIONAL OR PAY ME MY DECEMBER FEE , WHICH SHE OWES ME FOR DEFAULT.
Please if you do not want to end up like this do NOT work for
Hiyako Spa NY
Sapporo Spa NY
OWNER ; CHONG YU AKA "JULIE"
AND HER HELPER WHO CALLS HIMSELF "BOB"
( in retrospect I strongly believe and suspect that they did this to the assistant and web person they had prior to me, I only did assistant services, but now in retrospect based on past convos , I believe this is their pattern so be aware and don't get taken in by them, very unprofessional)
These are just some things in regard to touring to being an Upscale provider ... period that I thought would be good to share.
I myself haven't toured in a long time, but there are some common sense things I think upscale escorts whether touring or not should always have on hand for themselves and to add to the fun for their clients.
*What to pack!!!!
The upscale escort is not just all about the bedroom and she should always be prepared whether touring or at home for dinner dates, lunch dates, weekend get aways, opera, dancing etc.
So I suggest you start to be sure your wardrobe contains some of the following elements
1.Nice classy jewelry pieces ( doesn't have to be expensive) but it should be tasteful.
2.Evening ready dresses or gowns, I suggest a good mixture, some sequined and some basic simple fabrics.
3.Nice feminine yet classy pant suits and day dresses for those times when you need to be able to look office professional yet still alluring.
4. Nice heels but not the same ones we wear in the bedroom ( not stripper heels, save those for night time)
5. A nice assortment of lingerie, ( well fitting lingerie) and accessories to suit the tastes of the more romantic man up to the more kinky man , and even a few latex or leather pieces for our BDSM, FETISH suitors.
6. Wigs, great for saving your hair and great for those times when you dont have time to spend on doing it yourself.
7. A makeup kit , even if you aren't a lady heavy into makeup please have foundation,eyeliners,brow liners,lip gloss,matte lipstick, concealers etc ready to go!
8. The fun bag, with your dildos, toys, batteries, cleaning supplies, condoms wipes, extra towels and washclothes etc.
9. A camera to take pics of yourself while touring, men love candids as well as to capture your travels(great for blogging later)
10. Laptop,phone,tablet, one or all three and plenty of chargers if you are like me and prone to charger mishaps.
*Do your research before touring!!!!
As for planning where to tour, talk with other ladies, our co workers and also check Safe Office for Touring news on which cities and states are best and which hotels are most sex worker friendly.
Please when touring make sure you screen.
ALSO TO ASSURE YOU ATLEAST BREAK EVEN IN A WORST CASE SCENARIO GET DEPOSITS !! THIS WAY YOUR INVESTMENT IS NOT IN VAIN IN REGARD TO HOTEL AND TRAVEL COST IF THEY BEGIN TO FLAKE.
I like the idea of putting out feeler ads ATLEAST 2-3 weeks in advance just to be sure the cities are really worth your effort or if you may need to change plans on where you decide to go.
*LASTLY ONCE TOURING... THE ART OF FREESTYLING
1.Dress in a classy yet alluring fashion.
2.Learn how to be flirty and friendly yet still discreet in your convo with gentlemen
3.Place yourself where businessmen with money are found upscale hotel bars, upscale cigar and whiskey bars,nice nightclubs,nice upscale restaurants.
4. Print up discreet business cards with your website link and email and phone info and if they ask what you do once you have felt them out and feel somewhat secure that they are not law enforcement slip them your card before you leave.
5. Leave him with a smile and invite him to contact you if he'd like to have some company.
6. Just be careful what you say and do and don't go to far in convo and end up arrested, remember you never know who is working undercover and where.
Be safe ladies Happy Touring!!
At first I was going to VLOG this, instead of type it and maybe later tomorrow I shall still do that. But for now..
I am very professional, very polite and I keep my clients updated and in the loop regarding any services I am doing for them. I have had about 2 clients who are such control freaks ( I am one myself so I get it) that it's been next to impossible to complete my work.
When you hire a professional of any type you have to trust that they know what they are doing. Why would you hire me or anyone else if you didn't trust us to do what you hired us to do.
I recently had someone hire me to do web work and then change their mind, not based on my ability but based on the downtime where they would not have a site for about 4 days to a week. I even explained and offered to create as I have done for ladies before a one page blogger site with a few pics, rates and screening page to cover the gap of where the site is down. HOWEVER most ladies are perfectly fine with just having a coming soon landing page as long as the ads they have on sites convey what they want or need.
I DO WANT TO EXPRESS GREAT GRATITUDE FOR THIS CUSTOMER BECAUSE AT THE TIME WHEN SHE PAID ME, I CERTAINLY NEEDED THE INCOME.
The point of this is not to "drag" "embarrass" or "humiliate"her in any way. I just want clarity on what occurred. I offered to send her her payment for site back within 10-14 days as is my refund policy shown clearly here on this site.
She was extremely gracious and told me to simply do some Photoshop edits for her. I did a couple, she wanted something different so I did a couple more and sent them to her as "proofs" if you will and asked her opinion, the ones I shared were not meant to be FINALS they were meant to serve to allow her to tell me what she wanted different , if anything. I texted, I emailed and never heard back.
This kind of thing bothers me because, I again am professional, I am not a kid so if you do not like something I do, please DIRECTLY contact me , and allow me to make it perfect for you. I thrive on perfection and nothing makes me happier than seeing my client happy and satisfied. So please always reach out to me for a resolution and correction of anything you want fixed.. ALWAYS!
LASTLY, again this is ALSO ON MY SITE. if you decide those of you who use me for MONTHLY OR WEEKLY SERVICES THAT YOU WANT TO DISCONTINUE SERVICES, ( as an Asian Spa recently needed to do , due to being closed) you MUST give me 30 days written notice. While I do empathize and understand that things happen, it is inconsiderate, and unprofessional as hell to not give notice. My monthly and weekly clients are a big portion of how I SUPPORT MY FAMILY. So I need notice. This Spa in question provided NONE and the only way I found out was when I messaged them to let them know I was renewing their Eros ads etc as I do every month. I was then told to stop paying for them , that they were closed. I then professionally emailed, texted and screenshotted my policy , if you fail to give me 30 days notice YOU OWE FOR THE NEXT MONTH. As a professional and as long as I have been working for them, she should have been professional or her assistant should have and let me know , or since they didn't they should have handed over my payment. Please DO NOT TREAT ME WITH LESS RESPECT THAN I TREAT YOU WITH.
I have rules, provisions, and regulations on my business site for a reason and I expect my customers to respect them , same as we expect our escort clients to respect us in our other arena.
AGAIN, I APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU, ALL OF YOUR BUSINESS, BUT I EXPECT AND DESERVE RESPECT AND COURTESY JUST THE SAME AS I GIVE IT TO YOU ALL.
CEO of Taken By Storm
I will be emailing this individually to all my past and present customers this week, but I wanted to post it here so that anyone looking can truly see how much I appreciate you and your consideration. I really have had some and have some of the best customers in my web company endeavor that I could imagine. Such a wonderful group of people. I look forward to continuing to be of service to you all.....
I wanted to take time to thank all of you, my customers, Taken by Storm has been officially up and running a year now, although I have been doing site work and mentor work much much longer.
I am often told I am too transparent ( in other words to personal) well it's who I am as a person, but as all of you know I am also extremely professional.
I know my procedures ( Western Union and other quirks I have) drive some of you crazy, but trust me I do things the way I do them for the benefit of my family unit always. (sidenote PayPAL is ok as long as you pay it atleast 2 weeks in advance) and because many of you are last minute ( as I and many others are in our industry) it makes Western Union more applicable for me as its how I pay rent, etc and my landlord doesnt accept anything but cash ( Shes not modernized yet lol) So I just wanted to explain that to you all so that you know it is never my intent to make your lives difficult.
But back to the topic,
This is just really to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU , so much for your support, admiration and continued use of my services. To my WEEKLY AND MONTHLY clients you all have NO idea what your patronage means to me and allows me to do for my family, so ladies and gents , thank you so much.
( please also remember the clause listed on my business site if at anytime you are going to discontinue monthly or weekly services I need to know 30 days in advance otherwise you are responsible for paying the upcoming month) I need 30 days notice always so that I can keep my affairs in order. I am sure you all can relate. :)
AGAIN I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE. I AM SO PROUD OF WHAT I DO AND THE ABILITY TO DO IT FOR YOU ALL BECAUSE I AM A STRONG ADVOCATE OF THERE BEING NO SHAME IN SEX WORK , WE ARE WONDERFUL PEOPLE.
Much love and gratitude,
Hey Ladies and Gents,
Let me begin with, we are all different, what works for one, may not work for you. You may not be comfortable being "fancy" or attending star places and functions. You may be more comfortable hiking, going to sporting events, so be comfortable. However this blog entry mainly is for all the ladies who reach out to me week upon week, hoping to gain more upscale, high end clients.
Now in the title I refer to this type of client as a suitor. This is because he is interested in you as a PERSON, as a woman , not just as an object he can bend over for an hour. Many of us who have certain personality types, or who are for instance sapiosexual ( turned on sexually by intelligence) prefer these more discerning upscale gents instead of the usual only looking strictly for sex escort encounter.
These are the men who will pay your bills, rent, take you on vacations, send you money "just because" , the men who really invest in their companion and her interests.
So you ask, How do I get those kind of guys Storm?
I will say this, I find these men are turned on more by your intelligence and your interests, while they love to see you in lingerie ( what man doesn't) these men also love the more alluring (leave it to the imagination ) photos of you in evening gowns, a business suit , a sexy dress, or an artistically shot photo shoot. I myself have a shoot coming up I will have about 3 sets of lingerie but all the rest will be attire I will wear to music events, 5 star restaurants etc. These men want to know that you can be classy, sexy, alluring and hold a mature intellectual conversation as well when you are out with them.
So yes ladies , get some upscale, classy outfits, there are online boutiques that have nice things without breaking your bank. Let him imagine slowly undressing the layers, the anticipation will lure him..
As far as your lingerie, make sure if going for the upscale gents that its well detailed, elegant, feminine, or even edgy lingerie but make sure it looks like you take pride in how you look. I love coordinated looks w jewelry , shoes and makeup going for a theme. I think it really really helps your site pop.
Photos themselves, HD is the way to go, again I know budget can be a thing, so do what you can , they do sell HD pro grade webcams and you'd be surprised what you , yourself can do till you can afford the photog of your dreams, if you really try. Set you camera on a timer, so you can watch yourself pose, and catch yourself at just the right angles. Take your time you can get some good shots if you have a GREAT camera.
Try to be sure there's no clutter , food, soda cans etc in your photos, keep it clean and if you miss something, please crop or photoshop it out of the scene.
WORDING of your ads and your websites....
This is equally as important to men of this caliber as your images are.
If you yourself cannot write good content, I do content/ad copy for a fee and so do other ladies. Feel free to study us all, read up on us all, see what others say about us all and hire who you feel is the best fit for you.
In your ad and site content, please leave out slang, and no overflow of emojis MATURE GROWN MEN, BUSINESS MEN DO NOT WANT TO SORT OUT 20 EMOJIS, It looks very juvenile and you are trying to get men who spend their time in boardrooms and on golf courses.
Your text on ads and sites should show you to be intelligent, classy mature and able to involve yourself in an array of topics about intimacy, music, fine dining, places of travel etc. Showcase your education, what are your goals, along with turning him on and alluring him with sexual fantasies, let him know you are woman of substance who knows how to be a lady in the streets and a FREAK in the sheets. This is how you will get the "suitors" vs the "clients".
Also, take the time to fill your mind with information. Read up on different topics, read a few articles, books on psychology, real estate, business, etc. Use Pinterest and YouTube to learn and visualize different foods, cultures and places. Learn another language in your spare time and if you have the money and the extra time take a class or two. Also as my granny taught me when I was younger, read ladies etiquette books, learning to talk, eat and act with grace has it perks. Lastly be well informed on the world around you and current events. Doing all these things can make you the perfect date for the discerning gent.
These are just a few little pointers to start you on your way...

Seo and the Importance of it.
SEO , (search engine optimization) can help you in escorting, especially now when advertising is becoming so expensive that many companions are beginning to wonder if they are even getting a good return on the advertising investment. I am certainly not insinuating that SEO should totally replace your advertising on Escort Websites completely, but it can certainly help more people find you.
By having good SEO your site virtually becomes its own personal ad for you.
I have a video on SEO that touches on the main ways to get it to work for you, but I have been doing it more lately for more types of businesses so there are a few points
I want to emphasize for you all.
1. Including atleast 1 to 2 images on each page of your site helps with SEO ( remember when doing SEO , each photo on your site should have its image file name replaced with keywords from your SEO, and you can also put these in the ALT TEXT area for each image) so just by having 1-2 images that have been SEO enhanced on each page, your are enabling search engine crawlers to index, and read your site more easily.
2. The text amount on each page for good SEO readability should be 300 words. Of those words you should mention 2-3 of your keywords and at the beginning paragraph on each word you'll want to use your FOCUS KEYWORDS ( these are the most special few words of your whole keyword list) . For instance my focus keywords for my personal escort website are VIP BBW ESCORT ( go google me right now with just those terms) You'll see it worked quite well :) The point is text matters make it count. Again search engine robots will be looking for your keywords to index your ranking
3. Speaking of indexing your site you or your webmaster should register your site and your sites, sitemap with Google Webmasters Tools, and Bing Webmaster tools. This is an important step.
4. Your SEO title must contain those focus keywords and so must your meta description ( thats the short display of text you see in google search right under the main title or link of what you looked for). Your meta description must also have good length.
5. Linking to your social media is very important and so are inbound and outbound web links on similar topics and interests. All of these things make you look like a trusted expert on the subject matter of your web site and it then helps improve your ranking.

The ramblings of a web designer, who is also a mother, grandmother and a working escort herself. Yes, and yet I still find time to get your assignments done and in a timely fashion.
The average website turnaround time for me , depending on the amount of project I have under my best is about a week to two weeks but can be longer, if I am waiting for photos or anything else from you.
As a companion for gentlemen, I am low volume, and plan to retire , I hope in about 8-9 months. I have been a companion for a very long time. I have a vast amount of knowledge and experienceand I love being able to share that with others , whether it be via web design , branding, marketing, or social media management.
I am proudly getting ready to launch a male companions site in a few days and I am so pleased about that. I truly want my portfolio to be well rounded and show all facets of sex work. So be looking back here in a few days for that addition tomy portfolio.
I would LOVE, LOVE, to have a transgender of any LGBTQ community member in my portfolio as well. BTW I am bisexual myself and have had a personal , intimate encounter with a trans lady once years ago. I do not discriminate and really genuinely hope to help all walks of the sex work community with their online personas. You will not be sorry should you hire me.
I also do Photoshop image edits, banner creations, Twitter header creations , and Tumblr site designs. Don't be scared to reach out and to see what I can do for you. The sky is the limit.
Be sure to read through all the main pages here on this site for details on pricing and more.
Also I have a mainstream web design company as well. Please feel free to contact me through here for information on that. It has its own site and social media accounts. I look forward to serving all your business needs!
Char aka Storm
My work process, so that everyone understands what I do on each web design project. I want you as the customer to be at ease, I also want to be able to complete my task as stress free as possible. So please read and then get ready to let me work my magic!
I wanted to explain my working process as a web designer I think it is important that many of you , who may not have used a web design person understand how the process usually works, ( atleast for other web designers I know and deal with and for myself)
I like to have the following things assembled to begin a design , and honestly it is how most companions I know send things to me, so for the most part I believe the thought process is the same.
PHOTOS , now let me explain why, photos play a very integral part in most design layouts, especially parallax sites or sites with big headers.
It is important that I have the photos , or that we have old photos atleast to plug in until you get new ones so that I can decide on the theme, feel, look , design of your site.
I am sure some ladies may find me to be hard edged about that, but I am an artist by nature, drawing, colors, art have always been a large part of my life and it is genuinely how I think , how I create, how I design. Designing a website without any idea of the images that will then later be sent to me , is similar to designing a building without a blueprint in my brain.
This is why most ladies who hire me to get a site, wait until they have the photos they want used OR they have older photos that they have me use to begin a project and then we switch them out at a later date. BUT again I WANT to be sure EVERYONE understands building a site takes time, energy, dedication. I am a perfectionist, I am professional and if after I create a site and it is completed and you then give me pics that cannot work with the theme or template used and I have to reconstruct an entire site. you WILL incur an extra fee.
( this is not the same as getting new pics after a site is completed and then wanting me to switch pics out, as long as it does not require changing the theme or template due to pics, the first 45 days after a sites construction, all changes to text and images are free *only within the first 45 days*)
So I just want everyone to be mindful of this.
If you have prepaid a deposit do not worry I AM GOING TO DO YOUR ASSIGNMENT, every last girl who has paid me and even those in the past WHO DIDN'T PAY AT THE START(NO LONGER ALLOWED) got their work delivered as promised. Again I am professional and I love what I do!
If you pay me to do a job, you need to trust me to do it.
I work better privately on a site ( unless you are experienced at web design and we agree in the beginning of project that we will work together on your site, which is not usually who I am approached by) but, if you no nothing about web design and you hire me to work for you to do a project for you , please trust my expertise.
I know what I am doing and have done it a long time. Each ladies site I have created thus far has been their vision and idea , or atleast their color scheme and idea of what they wanted. I am very good at taking direction and turning it into something beautiful.
I prefer to keep clients OUT OF THE ACCOUNT or SITE until 2 days before the release of the project. You cannot see my thoughts or understand them usually even if i draw them and send to you, it is not as easy to see how a site flows or the true vision till we are almost near completion. TWO days prior to a project being completed, I open it up so you can see it, write down any changes you want made, and I then go in and finish it off with any changes the customer requests.
It is very difficult to complete my job when a customer who really does not understand web design and the process to it , has their hands in the project the whole way through, especially since I know what works , what gets the most viewers, what keeps the most viewers engaged, and the importance of layout.
My own escort site has over 46,300 views or more in just a little under one year. I am not saying anyone's site should look like mine, my site is truly very much "me" in personality but I am telling you that I know what works. I get compliments daily from women and men alike on all of my sites. even the ones I have created for others.
I complete my work usually within a window of a week to 2 weeks depending on detail and amount of work on each persons different site.
Please trust my process and FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT TO ANY OF THE LADIES WHO'S WEBSITES YOU SEE POSTED IN MY
WEBSITE PORTFOLIO ON THE WEB DESIGN PAGE OF https://www.takenbystorm.biz
Again I want our working together, or me working for you experience to be pleasant for the both of us.
You hired me , or are planning to..
Sit back, relax and let me do the hard part.
You just continue being great!
So about almost 2 months ago now, literally almost 2 months ago a NEW YORK area lady, newly relocated there from a Southern state contacted me about SEO.
Lets be clear, she contacted me, in regard to hiring me to do her SEO. Me being a straight up and honest business person told her what I could do for her. She then asked me a few questions and by me providing those answers, she then figured out how to do the SEO herself.
I AT THIS POINT SAID NOTHING ABOUT PAYMENT OR REQUESTED NONE. SHE THEN ON HER OWN SAID THAT SHE WOULD PAY 50 AS A CONSULT FEE IN APPRECIATION OF THE HELP I'D GIVEN HER ( I HAVE ALL MY EMAILS, I DON'T DUMP THEM JUST FOR STORIES LIKE THIS ONE)SO FOR HER TO ACT AS THOUGH I SAID "I HELPED YOU ,PAY ME, ... NOT TRUE! SHE WHOLEHEARTEDLY OFFERED.
When I told her how to make the payment which was by Western Union she then didn't like it and then that's where the problem came in. My site and my parameters are CLEAR. I see no reason why this even continues to be something I need to explain. Providers complain all the time about men not reading their sites but yet they do the same to other providers.
I DID SHARE WITH HER THE HELL ME AND MY FAMILY HAD BEEN THROUGH AND THAT ONCE SHE SAID SHE'D SEND THE 50 IT WENT TO MY GROCERY BUDGET, MY MISTAKE THINKING I COULD ACTUALLY BE HONEST AND FRIENDLY WITH ANOTHER MATURE COMPANION. SORRY BUT IN MY OPINION IF YOU WOULD EVEN MENTION SUCH A THING IN A REVIEW OF ANYONE YOU'RE ONLY ONE STEP ABOVE THE HOBBYISTS WHO DO THE SAME TO COMPANIONS. ANYTHING I SHARED WITH YOU OR ANYONE ABOUT MY FAMILY WAS IN TRUST. BUT, I AM A WOMAN OF CHARACTER AND GRACE, SO I'M GOING TO LET THAT PART OF THIS GO, JUST REALLY BAD CHOICE AND DISPLAY OF CHARACTER SERIOUSLY.
I was genuinely and honestly annoyed after being told "Hey thanks for your help , I don't need the SEO package after all but I'll send you 50 for your time" ( you know same thing we expect clients to do as a courtesy when they cancel an appointment) but then having her then TRY TO NOT DO AS SHE SAID(she wouldn't have been able to complete her task without my assistance) so yes when we kept going back and forth and when I as a mother and a parent became frustrated I DID begin to check on the time it would be taken care of.
SHORT STORY , I SPENT 1-2 HOURS EXPLAINING SEO TO HER BECAUSE IN THE BEGINNING SHE ACTED AS IF SHE WAS HIRING ME FOR 100-150 TO DO THE WORK MYSELF . SHE THEN FIGURED OUT DUE TO MY HELP HOW TO DO IT HERSELF AND THEN OFFERED ON HER OWN TO PAY ME A SMALL TOKEN FEE AND NOW WANTS TO TRY TO SULLY MY REPUTATION?!?!!?
NOPE. and the length of time she waited to do it and the fact that she never complained to me since and acted as though she was as she said "praying for my family". I don't do "snakes" or dishonesty.
How dare you try to harm my business? Just plain awful of you.
I think some of you ladies think you are somehow better than other ladies, YOU ARE NOT!
We are all sex workers and we should give each other respect.
Have a good day!!
Her very distorted of my services was on safe office resources.
I have NOTHING to hide in relation to that situation. And her comments especially since she is who offered to pay are just deplorable.
ADDENDUM, BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN TRUE TRANSPARENCY, WHEN I SHARE A STORY, I HAVE ONLY HAD TO EVER"STRONGLY" REACH OUT TO OR REITERATE THE NEED TO PAY ME AT AN AGREED UPON TIME AND DATE TO TWO COMPANIONS EVER, WE WILL CALL THEM "G" AND "C" AND NO THEY WERE NOT RELATED INCIDENTS. I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO SAY THIS ,BUT I PROVIDE MY SERVICES BY THE DEADLINE I GIVE MY CUSTOMERS USUALLY EARLIER THAN I TELL THEM AND NOT LATER THAN, SO I EXPECT THE SAME KINDNESS AND CONSIDERATION, PROFESSIONAL TO PROFESSIONAL! BUT IN THE CASE ABOVE THERE WAS NO SERVICE RENDERED OTHER THAN "SEO TUTORING" WHICH THE PARTY THEN VOLUNTEERED TO PAY ME FOR. DON'T VOLUNTEER TO PAY SOMEONE AND ENSURE THEM THAT YOU WILL, IF YOU DON'T MEAN IT AND THEN GET ANGRY WHEN THEY EXPECT IT.
I have been asked by a few newer ladies, or even ladies who are trying to rebrand how to cross into the high end market.
I am sure some reading this will chuckle and say, why ask Storm? She isn't high end herself. I assure you when I first began I was in the higher end bracket for "that generation" but more importantly, I am MID, high end and low volume currently. I have however to my credit mentored 2 ladies that went on to become VERY VERY high end, one of whom still works internationally and here in Atlanta and another who was on the Top 10 list who retired about 2 years ago.
Please understand I do know the game and the hustle. I just chose to be Mom first and family first but trust me, I am not ignorant to how to climb the ladder.
Now for you new ladies or ladies who aren't sure about this era of web advertising, web sites and social media...
Here are a few pointer's ( need more elaborate information please contactme personally, privately to see what I can do for you!)
1. BE YOURSELF
2. FIND A NICHE AND EXPLOIT IT TO YOUR BENEFIT, ARE YOU BBW? USE IT, ARE YOU A COLLEGE GIRL? USE IT, ARE YOU A YOGA QUEEN? USE IT, ARE YOU AN ARTIST? USE IT... YOU GET THE POINT, FIND A WAY TO MARKET YOURSELF THAT STANDS OUT FROM THE REST!
3. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT WHAT EVERY OTHER LADIES RATES ARE, YOU HAVE TO SET YOUR RATES TO BE WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU, WHAT IS REALISTIC BASED ON YOUR DEMOGRAPHIC AND YOUR MARKET!
4. BUT .. ALSO ON RATES IF YOU WANT TO MARKET TO HIGH END GUYS , YOU HAVE TO SET YOUR RATES HIGHER AND STICK TO THEM, IT MAY BE SLOW AT FIRST BUT HANG IN THERE FOR ATLEAST 2 MONTHS IF YOU CAN BEFORE MAKING A RATE ADJUSTMENT, GIVE IT TIME.( obviously if you have an emergency, are starving or about to be evicted, then by all means do what you have to do, I keep it real)
5. DO NOT , I REPEAT DO NOT OFFER REVIEW SPECIALS, DO NOT TRADE FOR REVIEWS.
6. IN YOUR PHOTOS MAKE SURE YOUR PICS CONVEY THAT YOU ARE CLASSY, ALONG WITH LINGERIE AND SEXY SHOTS TAKE SOME SHOTS OF WHAT YOUR GENTLEMEN CALLERS CAN EXPECT TO SEE YOU WEAR SHOULD THEY TAKE YOU TO DINNER , DANCING OR AN OUT ON THE TOWN EXCURSION. (Upscale gentlemen like class, and intelligence and a total package)
7. BECOME WELL READ AND ABLE TO CARRY ON CONVERSATIONS ABOUT AN ARRAY OF INTELLIGENT, MATURE TOPICS, AS WELL AS MUSIC AND THE ARTS. LEARN HOW TO PRONOUNCE EXOTIC FOODS AND BE OPEN TO TRYING THEM WITH YOUR SUITORS.( Again upscale men love to spend time with ladies who have more to offer than just a romp in the bed!)
8..SPEAK AND WRITE, IN YOUR ADS, AND ON YOUR WEBSITE AND IN PERSON AND BY PHONE WITH INTELLIGENCE. LEAVE THE SLANG FOR YOUR PERSONAL FRIENDS!
9. CARRY YOURSELF IN A WAY THAT IS POISED, CONFIDENT AND COMMANDS RESPECT AND COURTESY.
10. BE THE PERFECT , LADY IN THE STREETS AND FREAK IN THE SHEETS, MAKE YOUR CLIENTS COMFORTABLE, MAKE THEM FEEL SAFE AND GIVE THEM EXPERIENCES THEY WON't FORGET, ALL WHILE BEING FLIRTY AND YOURSELF.
11. OPEN YOURSELF TO ADVERTISING ON EROS, SLIXA AND THE HIDDEN PAGES, YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY BASED ON YOUR LOCATION AND IT SOMETIMES I HAVE FOUND DOESN'T TAKE OFF TILL MONTH 2 OF YOUR AD. SO HANG IN THERE.
I hope these tips give you some insight. If you need more guidance, help, SOMEONE TO HELP YOU WITH WEB DESIGN OR SCREENING FOR SAFETY. Read more of this site and hire me soon!
I love what I do, I love seeing people move forward :)

While I overall still believe in Tumblr's main use as being your blog not your actual website( and Tumblr is more like an extension blog, I don't necessarily feel it should be your main blog) , BUT, Tumblr has come a long way , has many more Themes (templates) and so I can offer these pointers should you decide to use Tumblr as a main website!
If you decide to use Tumblr as a main site they DO allow you the ability to get a customized web link that is my very first most important suggestion!
Next in the Edit Profile Appearance under your settings , you can actually do lots of neat, personalized, customizable things once you have chosen your theme. Simply click Custom HTML, (Tumblr actually has a nice Help section for this, which if you have any coding knowledge or experience can help you create something truly personal)
Try to not use the standard one column Tumblr grid for your items, I suggest picking either columns of 2 or 3.
Choose colors that are easy to read for your Tumblr background and text. I see many Tumblr's that are simply very hard to read or colors that are simply for lack of a better term , UGLY.
CHOOSE A THEME THAT SUPPORTS AND/OR HAS A NAVIGATION MENU BAR !! This is how you are able to make it work like an actual web site.
