OK no dumb questions right? To the companions here, do you use business cards? And to the Ladies, have you received business cards from your companions?

I would think the use of business cards would mainly be for referrals but I could spare the expense if it's not that important. Any thoughts?

I actually had some made (you can get 50 quite nice ones for $20-$30 if you design them yourself), but I keep forgetting to give them to my patrons!  I get caught up in the moment I suppose...

In theory though I think they're a great idea.

Thanks Luke, I figured as with any business a card can be useful. I appreciate the response.

Giving a card to a patron on booking is one thing. Doing so before the patron knows about the booking... now there's a trick...  ^-^

I, personally, would rather you Gentlemen used the reference - Calling Card.

Hey, I made some business cards, think its a great way to advertise.

I live in Buckhead, Atlanta GA in the United States-I am surrounded by strip clubs. And very upscale salons, I gave the owners my cards to display for customers coming and going to their stores.

However I have never given a card out personally to a woman, just because I feel it would be insulting her in someway?

What do you guys think?

considering the locations maybe you could give the strip club owners the cards to give their customers or leave on the counter or notice board given the nature of the place it wont be insulting for prospective clients to freely take a card openly or discreetly on their free will the issue about selling is some people dont like being sold to but like to buy i think but i could be wrong

Interesting topic,

I bump it to get more thoughts on the subject. Ladies could you think about receiving a Calling Card out of the blue from a gentleman in the street  :D

I don't know about other ladies, but I wouldn't consider seeing a gentleman who did this. Putting the cards in a public place and making them available would be another story. That would be fine.

There is nothing better than a personal introduction at a party.  Especially when you are at a party over the holidays. Especially if your host or hostess knows what you do companion services on the side.

If the hostess is good at being a hostess, she would already know her guests.  She would know and tell you to give a calling card after she have given you an introduction, especially if she believes the someone might be amenable to your side business.  Most of the parties I go to, what are my chances of seeing anyone else who is there ever again?  If I was given a calling card at the time of introduction, how better to get a hold of a gentleman I enjoyed meeting?  So much better than a "business card".

P.S. Of course it depends on the "type" of crowd you see yourself in.

I fully agree, it's definitely worth having business cards. Handing one to clients at the end of an appointment is a nice personal touch, it means your client has less chance of losing your contact details and also crucially helps with referrals.

Don't go for el cheapo cards either, it's worth spending a little more to ensure you have a high quality product. After all, you're not likely to be handing out loads of them at a time.

For our male escort agency we have used Business Cards for some time now. However if a client is satisfied she won't have any trouble to find you again on the www. And promote yourself by handing out cards to ladies just passing by doesn't work, like some on this forum already explained.

Just doing a good job is the best promotion!

@TMAC4Women.

Quite right.

@ Quinn. Maybe. A thought on controlling the situation (a condition of which I am very fond - controlling situations that is...) Calling or business cards in a public place is... well, not great. I've not done this as the thing is  - anyone can pick them up. And frankly I do not need texts and calls from some people (i.e some of my least favourite people - men. They are very often and very much as most women dersively descibe them. And unwelcome publicity might spiral.

Having said that I thought I'd counter my own negativity to wards guys with an amusing story.

I was once upon a time working on my sun tan (back in the days when sunshine existed) and I received a cell call. It was a courier wanting to find the delivery details for a male escort. He had a parcel he was unable to deliver - he thought "we" would all know each other. I didn't know the recipient and couldn't help him. But this courier was curious as to what was what in this world and we engaged a bit of chit chat for sometime until a VERY loud throat clearing from his boss on the other end  - a very expensive telephone call etc.

Of course the point is that no one came away from this exchange with a negative opinion about anyone - very civil indeed. But it's a communication I was able to control and ensure a view was not bandied about that might come back at me.

Lucifer, when I gave my opinion, I was only thinking about it from a woman's point of view. You made an excellent point from the companion's viewpoint. For everyone's safety and comfort, maybe we're all better off sticking to online and word-of-mouth methods for potential clients and companions to meet. That's what worked out extremely well for me.

Yes, here and now is a good time, well said Gentleman4Hire. A recent client told me she told all her friends - (apparently they were all jealous but are now taking months to decide to email or not... So I've not heard from anyone but my lovely client. Next time I see her she can take on the task of distributing my cards. It's not what you do but how you do it, and who does it...  ;)
