Escorts have always been in demand, but there are certain times of the year when business is booming and others when it’s a little slower. The “slow season” for escorts is typically the summer months around school holidays and winter when Christmas approaches.
However, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t still a demand for escorts during this time of year. It just means that you might have to work a little harder to find clients. Alternatively, since business is a bit slow, there are a few important things you can do for yourself and your business.
We’re going to take you through what to do during a slow season from updating your social media to taking care of your business administration because there’s always something to do when you’re self-employed.
What to do during the slow season
Escorts often have to worry about what to do during the slow season. Here are a few tips on how to stay busy during the off-time.
Update your photos
When you don’t have much work, updating your photos on your website or Vivastreet profile is an excellent idea. For instance, you could take sexy selfies and upload them on your profile. You might also take this opportunity to book a photoshoot with a professional photographer to ensure that your photos look their best.
In addition to updating photos, as an escort, you can also use your free time to update your website copy and check that your contact details are up to date. By taking a proactive marketing approach, you can make sure that you’re always visible to potential clients and that you’re able to stay busy even during slow periods.
Escorts are often portrayed as being jet-setters with a glamorous lifestyle. However, the reality is that much of an escort’s time is spent waiting for clients. This can be frustrating, but it also provides an opportunity to catch up on any social media work.
You can stay in touch with your followers by posting updates and photos and building anticipation for the next meeting. In addition, social media can be a valuable marketing tool, helping you to attract new clients, especially with platforms like OnlyFans and Instagram.
Ultimately, when used wisely, social media can be a powerful asset for any escort, and we can’t recommend it enough.
Do the admin work
Taking care of your finance, administration, and taxes is an extremely important part of the business. For this reason, despite being a tedious task, you should see it as an opportunity to get your affairs in order and ensure everything is running smoothly.
First of all, make sure you stay on top of your bookkeeping. This includes tracking your income and expenses and filing any necessary tax documents. Having everything in order will make it much easier when tax time rolls around. Otherwise, you may have to hire an accountant to deal with your finances and handle your papers on your behalf.
Catch up with regular clients
As an escort, you know that the slow season can be a bit of a drag. But don’t despair; use this opportunity to connect with your regular clients. Plan some fun outings, send them sultry text messages, or even just give them a call to catch up. Staying in touch with your regulars will not only help to keep them interested, but it will also help you stay busy during the slower months.
If some of your previous clients haven’t been in touch for a while, it’s the right time to contact them and see if they want to schedule a meeting.
So next time you find some free time on your hands, why not give your previous clients a call and see what they’re up to.
Find a working partner
There’s nothing quite like the thrill of the unknown. The excitement of meeting someone new and giving them the time of their life. But what happens when you don’t have any work? Well, you could try finding a working partner.
There are many benefits to working with another escort. For one, it can be a great way to make new friends. Escorts who work together often become close friends, which can be a great way to build a support network.
Additionally, working with another escort can help you improve your techniques. Naturally, you can continue to improve your craft by watching and learning from each other.
Finally, working with another escort can simply attract more customers and be more fun than working alone.
It can be difficult to make ends meet when you have no clients and this is where saving money comes in handy.
You can find creative ways to save money, such as shopping at cheaper supermarkets or clothing stores. You can also postpone your nail appointment to better days, for instance, before your next meeting.
Naturally, as tempting as it may be, be thrifty with your wardrobe. You don’t need to spend a fortune on designer clothes to look good as an escort. Invest in a few key pieces you feel confident in and mix and match them to create different looks.
There are a few ways you can reduce your business costs and we discuss them all in this guide.
Go on a short holiday
If money isn’t an issue, taking a short holiday is a great option to clear your mind. Taking holidays is a part of any job, so don’t feel guilty if you decide to take a break and have to turn down meeting clients for some time.
Again, if you have some money saved, go on a long weekend abroad, and don’t worry about the money you’re not making; chances are that you aren’t really losing anything. This is probably the best time in your life to relax and unwind before returning to your busy life ready to take your career forward.
Get to work
Although the slow season for escorts can be challenging, it also offers opportunities to focus on the business. This is the time to take care of administrative tasks, update social media, and plan for the future. It’s also a good time to focus on personal financial goals.
For many sex workers, the slow season is a chance to recharge and refocus. It’s an opportunity to enjoy some well-deserved downtime and reconnect with family and friends. In short, the slow season can be a great opportunity to take care of oneself, both physically and emotionally.
