It has been a while since I blogged. I am sorry. Life has been hectic since
I want to once again remind you of the importance of strong SEO.
As most of you know I myself am an escort and this week along I have
In other news...
I am fortunate in that I work for an agency in California that employs about 11 ladies.
I want all of you to be encouraged and to continue to work on ways to reinvent yourselves.
If you need help with #marketing , #branding, #screeningassistant, a new #website or
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!
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 :)

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!
