How can I post an ad on Vivastreet?
To post an ad on Vivastreet is simple. Just follow these steps:
1. Click on the ‘Post your ad’ button.
Begin to complete the ad posting form. Firstly, select the most appropriate category for your advert.
3. Begin to enter your postcode, then select it from the dropdown.
4. If you have selected an escort related category, move to step 5. Otherwise skip straight to step 6.
5. If you have selected either the escort & massages, trans escorts or gay escorts category in the previous field, you will then be asked to select whether you are an independent or agency escort.
Note, an independent escort is self-employed, while an agency is an organisational body who employs escorts. Ensure that you select the best one that represents you.
6. Enter the title you wish to use for your ad.
Remember, this is one of the most important elements of having a successful ad on Vivastreet. Writing a clear and informative title will not only clearly highlight the service/item you are selling in your ad, but will ensure that you get the right type of interest to your ad.
7. Write your description.
Similarly to your title, writing a clear description detailing your service or item will ensure that you get the right people to your ad, increasing your chances of selling your service or product. It’s important to avoid populating your ad with spammy content; doing so will only make your ad look suspicious to potential buyers.
More information on how to write an ad title and description can be found on our ‘How to attract more clients to your ad’ guide.
8. If you have selected either escorts & massages, trans escorts, or gay escorts category in step 2, you will be asked to select the gender you identify with. If not, skip straight to step 15.
9. Select your age.
10. Select your ethnicity.
11. Select the languages that you can speak.
12. Select the specialised services you provide, choosing as many as applicable.
Ensure that you are truthful, as misleading information on your ad will only negatively impact your reputation for future customers. Highlighting your specialisms will let potential contacts know and understand the services you provide, and importantly the services you don’t provide.
13. Select to whom your service(s) are catered for. You can select as many as applicable.
15. (Optional) Upload photos of your services or product.
Adding a clear and accurate photo will increase the number of responses you receive. More benefits of using a high quality image for your ad can be found here. Note: you can upload up to 12 pictures to one ad.
16. (Optional) Upload a 1 minute video.
Having a high quality video will increase the engagement of your ad.
18. If you have already created an account with Vivastreet and have already logged in, then skip to step 20. Enter your email and phone number. Note your phone number is optional.
If provided it will be displayed on the top of your ad. If you do not wish to have your number displayed, leave this field blank.
(Optional) To maximise the number of responses for your ad, you can also purchase one or more of our upgrades to help better promote your ad. At Vivastreet we have four main upgrade packages:
a. VIP carousel – puts your ad in the carousel at the top of the page. Also provides you with bigger pictures.
b. Featured ad – ensures your ad will also be at the top section of the listing above the competition.
c. Highlight your ad – shows more pictures alongside your main picture and makes your ad benefit from a bright green header
d. Repost your ad – Your ad will be automatically reposted to the top of the listing twice a day, giving you more exposure and more calls. Alternatively, you can opt for our multi repost feature (note this option is not automated). Prices will vary.
*Please note, prices for ad upgrades are subject to change depending on postcode.
- If you did not select an escort category in step 2 then proceed straight to step 20.
(Optional) Add your website URL. Note, we only allow URLs that link to your own website.
20. Now you’re ready to publish your ad. Simply agree to the terms and conditions by clicking the checkbox.
What if my ad is not approved?
If your ad is not approved, ensure you have adhered to our posting guidelines. Reasons why your ad may be rejected include, but are not limited to:
- Posting an ad in the wrong category
- Offensive content (violent, racist)
- Spam or fraudulent ads
- Counterfeit products
To ensure that your ad is approved as quickly and easily as possible, a full list of regulations can be found on our posting guidelines page.
If you ad doesn’t go live after a few minutes, then contact our CS team to make sure there are no errors.
- If you have opted to publish on a non-paid category, or did not select any upgrade options, skip to step 22.
Once you have published your ad you will be directed to the payment page. Here, you’ll be asked to complete payment (if your ad is within a paid category).
Note – you will have the opportunity to select an ad upgrade on this page if you did not opt for this feature on the previous steps.
For payment methods you will be given two options; credit card or Paysafe. (Note – first time transactions can only opt for credit card payment). It is also worth noting you can only pay for your own advert.
If you have not confirmed your account, you will see a notification in your account page, asking you to do it.
Once you have completed all the steps above, you will receive notification of your live ad.
