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.
I have MANY other Tumblr tips available to offer, even how to grow your Tumblr network, how to hashtag, and how to get noticed more in Google search via Tumblr.
I STILL STRONGLY URGE USE OF AN ACTUAL WEB SITE PLATFORM AND HOSTING COMPANY BUT TUMBLR IF YOU ARE IN A PINCH CAN BE AN OPTION THAT'S FAIRLY EASY TO USE.
Don't have time or patience to do it yourself!?
I am willing to set up Tumblr sites for 200 flat!( Multi page) or 150 single page.

My, my, my. I have told this to customers over and over again but it seems to fall on deaf ears. Listen folks, I completely understand "budget" I get it, however you get what you pay for. Your hosting company is so very important to the success and health of your website. Getting a good deal on your monthly or yearly rate can seem wonderful until you have a technical crisis and then realize they have no real tech department and they are pretty much over on the other side of the country or even the world reading a manual trying to figure it out.
Meanwhile, your site is down and the person you are speaking to has NO technical knowledge and is reading a script and has to run and ask the other "department".
THIS is not how good, quality web hosting companies operate. This should be a red flag to you immediately , and even if you just paid them, me personally Id still migrate my site to a more professional reputable company.
I am experiencing an issue with the hosting company of one of my own web design clients. One small change such me changing the wordpress password for the wordpress installation in the hosting platform the PHP area caused a error reaching database message.
The normal fix for this is very simple if you have access to the persons FTP and can do a wp reconfig repair, it usually fixes and has the site back up as it was in all its glory in simply 20 min to an hour!!!! BUT honestly changing the password alone shouldn't even cause that error. I have changed Passwords, hell even my own many many times without this ever happening. This same company was hell to deal with in uploading the new site back in July to their servers. AGAIN, ladies and gentlemen , PLEASE do you research before opting for a hosting company.
READ THE REVIEWS AND CUSTOMER COMPLAINTS PLEASE.. PLEASE!
You as the customer deserve the BEST technical support possible and ME as the web designer will greatly thank you for providing me with a reliable hosting platform for my work and for my support system.
Good hosting is very important for both the web customer and web designer.
PLEASE stick to reliable sources, research them, I personally have found Godaddy and Hostgator and a couple of others to be awesome and to have really good tech support teams for their hosting departments. Cheap isn't always good, to be honest it rarely is, in business.
Words of wisdom for any future hosting company shoppers do not use myhosting.com , in fact my business partner will not build anyone's site who is using them and I am probably going to make that my policy also. They are awful as far as technical issues.
Invest well in your business.

It is extremely important to keep up to date on your Wordpress site updates. Wordpress is the easiest site platform for hacks, due to the fact that there are so many different author's of the plugins used for the site. Failure to stay on top of our updates can have serious negative impact, you can end up hacked.
Now on to my experience I had today. I went into someone's site to do a schedule post, ( just a blog listing of available ladies) Upon logging in I was about to click to go to the add new post the sites updates area showed that the site had updated to Wordpress 4.8.1 . I thought nothing of it, as this is not a site I built , again I was only hired to go in and add a post by one of my regular assistant clients.
Flash forward, about an hour passes and I begin to get frantic calls about the site is totally different, well I as you can imagine am baffled as I never do anything more than what I am asked to do, especially on a site I do not own and one I did not build.
I explained that sometimes when Wordpress updates it can destroy a site, you can Google it and find all kinds of articles on this. luckily you can also find an article with directions on how to fix this, I promptly emailed these instructions to the business owner so they can forward them to their web person as I do not have access to the FTP server for their cpanel hosting for that account. Other wise I would have been glad to try to make the repairs myself.
The lesson here is as wonderful, and customizable as Wordpress is , its also has vulnerabilities, and updates CAN affect your site. ALWAYS keep your Wordpress sites backed up, save the site before any updates occur. Again it can be downgraded to the previous older version of Wordpress but you will need to have access to your hosting server and the FTP for restoring it.
Incase anyone else ever experiences this and needs the link for directions for repair, Here it is.
Lastly I want to add, I do my job VERY VERY WELL, I am professional, reliable and I do not play with people's livelihood or accounts. I must ask that if I am working for you to avoid having "too many chiefs and not enough Indian's" that you do your business with me directly, unless you have an actual business partner. It becomes very frustrating when "friends" "acquaintances" etc begin trying to second guess what I am doing. Again I know what I am doing , quite well, and I will ONLY do what I am asked or hired to do , nothing more, nothing less. Please to keep things smooth and less stressful for both of us, if I am working for you handle your business with me DIRECTLY, my phone and email are available.
Have a great day and weekend! Let's all make some good money!
Good Monday to you all!
So you'd like to be a male escort, or maybe you already are, but you are having issues with marketing or want to "up" your marketing.
(Trans escorts I am going to also speak to you at the end of this article, I begin with the guys because I find it can actually be a little more difficult for them to enter the field)
I am often asked by male escorts, to put them to work for me, or what steps they need to take to escort. I am asked more lately how to market to be a straight male escort, which is even trickier depending on your demographic, where you are located and the age group of ladies you wish to appeal to.
Being a male for male escort is somewhat of an easier task. Honestly from the market here in Atlanta and the market back home in Baltimore, being a gay male escort or a trans escort if almost as lucrative if not more than being a female escort. I will admit from a business standpoint I have considered and still consider actually creating a gay and trans, alternative escort agency, but that is another topic , another time.
This blog is about tips and marketing.
I am going to break this down into the three groups , gay male, straight male, and trans escorts .
Marketing as a gay male escort/ or even as a "gay for pay" escort ( that means you are straight in your real life, but down to do something strange for some change lol)
Get a website !
Gay escorts are a dime a dozen in most major cities now, so be professional and able to stand out from the many others in your area.
Make sure your website is true to your personality, if you are a flamboyant, let your site reflect that,
if you are a more masculine top, be sure your site reflects that.
I have observed the gay escort ads and I do see that they are a bit more in your face, graphic and explicit than most of the female escort ads.
I get it,... however, I still believe it can be done in a classy , gentlemen's code way.
I believe the same about it as I do about female companionship, classier, higher paying clients look at your site , your words, your pictures and branding to see how classy you are.
Even in the gay market , it is important to get the best paying , safest clients. So put your best , most professional foot forward.
I know plenty of high end paying clients have the young gay thug fantasy, especially if they wish to be topped and maybe on your site you can make a second section to advertise and appeal to those types of clients. However I would not have it be my only offering.
When doing a gay male website, I think you also still have to have many of the same components for your safety as women, be sure you include a screening page.
You also should have a good amount of both professional suit pics, casual clothing pics as the sexy tight briefs that show just enough of your print pics.
IT IS OK TO HAVE A FEW, ONLY A FEW NUDE DICK PICS BUT NOT A WHOLE SITE OF THEM. remember keep it classy to get better clientele.
Marketing as the straight male.
NOW .. this is harder in alot of areas. Why? Well because men are so horny that even the most unattractive woman gets several free offers of sex per day.
So most women are a little less likely to pay for male companionship. However it is becoming a little more normal now as many older women, or even younger business women do not have the time or patience for traditional dating and relationships and are paying for added spice in their lives.
I myself have seen some gorgeous male escorts online that were I not a spoken for lady I may not mind spending some cash on..lol
In this arena it seems certain cities are better than others for it.
A few straight male escort hot spots
(SORRY GUYS ATLANTA is still a little more of a gay and trans market)
Europe in General
From what I have observed and heard through the grapevine those listed places seem to do better in terms of profiting as a male escort , if you know of anymore please feel free to message me so that I can update the list.
Now that you know the better locations lets get to the marketing
On a site where you want to appeal to ladies, I suggest you have a professional site with
wording that makes you seem very much Prince Charming but with just enough BAD BOY.
Most women want a gentleman on the surface BUT with a wild sexual beast and lots of stamina on the inside.
Women love flowers, being wined and dined, enjoying the romance first and then being swooped up and passionately made love to, or roughed up just enough to create passion not danger.
So if I were creating content for a straight male escort site I would suggest conveying this kind of mental and visual image to my prospective customers.
Also women are visual but not as visual as men, so to get to us ,and make us want to spend, we truly need to be intrigued mentally and visually.
So make sure your text is really good. Also, when marketing to women, Less dick pics, we love the tease I suggest the sexy sweatpants or exercise gear shots that show just enough dick print to be alluring.
I also strongly suggest nice suit shots, we love seeing men as both .
Lastly women like just the right amount of sensitivity and sexual brawn in a man, even one they are paying.
Marketing as Transgender
In this market it is very important to be true to yourself and to be you.
When hiring someone to help you with photos or web design and marketing, be sure to really have a voice and to make sure you are conveyed in the most attractive and comfortable way for you.
If you are trans male to female honey make that website as feminine, sexy and classy as you possibly can.
I see way too many trans escorts particularly here in Georgia who are making the mistake of thinking TUMBLR is a website , its a blog site,
its fine as a secondary site but it should not be your only or main site.
More importantly most of the trans sites on Tumblr that I see are porn, there is no class or elegance to it.
Most of you are BEAUTIFUL I mean some of you truly put CIS women to shame, so why not market to your fullest capability?
Get a site, become professional , market in a new way.
Make sure people respect and appreciate and are in awe of your beauty and your courage to be who you really are.
It is time trans ladies and gents to get a real site !
I'll say it again it is time for you to get a real site.
To get sexy, classy pics and most importantly to showcase yourself in a way to get TOP RATES.
Not the insane low rates I see so many trans sex workers settling for.
It is ULTRA important for you to have good screening skills , to get someone to teach you them or to have an assistant such as myself do it for you.
On your website I strongly suggest a screening form and I strongly suggest real life info collection for screening especially for trans sex workers because you are targeted so often for harm and death. Please take this advice and even if you do not pay someone like myself to build your site,
Use one of the site builder site platforms and build yourself one and be sure it has a screening form.
as I stated lots of trans workers are so truly beautiful, but your managers, pimps or just you , on your own have convinced yourself that you must take
graphic tacky pics.
NO! To improve your clientele to get the business men to get the white collar and CEO's you need to be classy and refined.
You especially as trans sex workers need to be able to fit into and blend into upscale social settings and situations if a client elects to take you out publicly and you deserve to enjoy a dinner date, an opera date, a movie date with a client same as any other sex worker!
So lets improve and make that happen, get some tuxedos if you are FTM and suits and get some nice great pics taken
if your'e MTF get some lingerie, some evening gowns, heels, invest in good hair extensions and makeup and get your great pics taken.
There are some VERY good examples on Eros and on Twitter of upscale trans-gendered sex workers I advise you to study them and to begin to network with the ones that will welcome you .
( IMPORTANT NOTE, SOCIAL MEDIA AND BLOGGING ARE IMPORTANT FOR ALL TYPES OF ESCORTS)
I am here for ALL three groups I have spoken to today!
GAY, TRANS, STRAIGHT MALE and as always my female sex work sisters.
I love what I do and I want to help everyone become the best them they can.
Please review my site and learn my rates and read all about what I can offer you.
I would love to create a website , or be your screening and booking assistant TODAY!

What Makes Me "Storm" Different?
Why should you hire me?
If you have ever been to a job interview, I am sure you have heard those questions or seen them on the application.
You have found my website, because you are either seeking a web designer or an assistant.
Now... Here's why you have stumbled across exactly where you need to be and who you need to hire.
1. I have been an escort for over 17 yrs myself.
2. I understand the high's , low's the personal emotions and the business issues that make this job both heaven and hell.
3. I am going to be honest with you ALWAYS, I am not going to upsell, or overcharge or suggest anything that you do not honestly need as part of your website or business model.
4. I KNOW WHAT I AM DOING AND I DO IT WELL AND FROM THE HEART.
5. My prices and fees are set to be attainable and fair to all levels of the industry, I believe all escorts and small business owners should be able to have a professional image.
6. I am going to tell you what I can do, the amount of time and keep you completely involved in the process.
7 . MOST IMPORTANT.. I ACTUALLY LOVE WHAT I DO!
There are many choices you can go to for web design especially. Plenty of other ladies also offering web design services.
Here is some honestly. Squarespace sites are fairly simple to use. Yes even building a Squarespace site takes time , so yes it does deserve pay for the creation and effort your web designer puts in it. BUT as a platform and especially with how easy and simple it is for most to use ( even with CSS , squarespace is actually alot more limited than say a fully customizable Wordpress site) fees such as 600 etc and up for a Squarespace site in my opinion are unreasonable UNLESS, AND AGAIN , UNLESS you have MANY MANY pages with complex information!
But in good character and honesty no one should charge you a high amount for a Squarespace site unless HOURS and HOURS of work were put into it and they truly did lots of CSS coding additions to your theme.
Wordpress sites ( not the reader or blogger ones, those will get shut down should Wordpress find you using them) require a little more knowledge and in my opinion are a lot more customizable. So yes fees on a Wordpress site can go from 200 up to 600-700 depending on your design, amount of pages, special effects, media etc.
Wix, Weebly all of those in my opinion are one step under Squarespace and the price on those sites should NEVER go above 300 if you are having one created.
Again I told you I am honest , and as you can see I am giving you facts here to help you make a decision on who you hire to do your site.
Don't just look at the beauty of the work the web designer does!
Look at the pricing they are charging you and do your research and see if it's really fair, or if there is a quite bloated "mark up".
NOW... custom coded sites! Those are worth every penny. That kind of creation takes alot more skill, knowledge, work, hours and blood and sweat.
A custom coded site is well worth a starting point of 500 up to 2000 or more in some cases, again depending on complexity of the site!
I HAVE A BUSINESS PARTNER ( ALSO MY LIFE PARTNER) who once was the owner of Pulsar Creations . He has now moved on to created sites mainly for vanilla businesses but has agreed to a partnership in conjunction with Taken By Storm to produce the CUSTOM CODED site requests that I may receive for ladies who want very sleek , very high end designs! His prices are from 500 to 2000.
You can find the banner that takes you straight to his business site listed on my Web Design tab of this site you are currently on.
AND THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON YOU SHOULD HIRE ME, ... WELL I AM TRUSTED AMONG THE COMMUNITY. GIRLS TRUST ME , MY BLOG ( NOW REMOVED) STORMSPEAKS.COM WAS QUITE LOVED AND IMPORTANT TO MANY LADIES AND EVEN GUYS.
I am known to be outspoken, honest and a fighter and lover of all who are mistreated, harassed and forgotten. I am also a feminist and believe in equality and fair treatment of literally everyone.
I am known for giving real facts and advice and for practicing what I preach with each one teach one!
I invite you to visit my references page , found my clicking the "I've worked for..." button in my site as well as the Testimonials page. Reach out to any of those ladies if you like and also read up on me or ask any of the ladies on Verify Him, You'll see I am of good character and really love all my "co- workers".
I do also OFFER screening assistant and booking assistant services.
I have a youtube channel and a youtube video on Screening. I am a hard core , real life information screener.
I believe in real , true knowledge of who ladies are going to spend time with. I am going to screen for you , as your screening assistant the same way I would if my daughter's were going out with a man or boy we do not know. Your safety is just as important to me as my own which is why I don't allow anyone I screen for to take short notice , last minute dates. Safety must always come first.
I hope I have passed your interview questions and that you will be contacting me to hire me soon!
Taken By Storm
I encourage you to send me questions you may have via my contact page here and if I think its a good blog topic your question may get chosen for blog of the week.
