Should you join an agency or be independent?
If there is one question that has been bothering my students is whether or not they should join an escort agency. I can only tell you the merits of being independent and joining an agency. However, the final decision will belong to you. As a London escort, I prefer a hybrid model, but it doesn’t always work for every one of us.
When I started, I was an independent escort; however, as time went by, I joined an agency. I came to realize that there are advantages and disadvantages of being in an agency and as a freelance worker.
Joining an Agency
If you join an agency, you have one main advantage when compared to your fellow London escorts; Advertising. Remember, advertising is the only way in which you can sell your services to the world. It is a billion-dollar industry that should not be ignored.
Some agencies will use online marketing techniques to attract as many clients as possible. In the process, they get a commission, and you are always busy.
As escorts, we meet a lot of people every single day. However, we do not know whether they are crooks or just bad people. If you use an agency, they will vet the client and have a copy of their ID which can come in handy when something terrible happens to you.
Though Covid-19 is a killer virus, we cannot deny the fact that it has disrupted business models. Now, clients prefer to order food online rather than eating at a hotel because it is safer. Similarly, clients prefer to book call girls online rather than in a club.
This increases the chances that you will always find work and hence increase your revenues.
No Need Worrying About Starting a Business
If someone told you that entrepreneurship was a walk In the park, then that person is not an entrepreneur. You see, entrepreneurship is a game that needs to be perfected over time. It stressful and if not careful, you might sleep hungry a day or two.
By joining an agency, you enter an already established business whose chances of failure are lower than when starting your own company.
If you are an independent escort, then you will have the following advantages:
Unlike an agency, you will be in charge of finding your clients and as a result, you will not share out your revenue with third parties.
You Have Complete Control of your Work
The most significant advantage of being your boss is that you are responsible for what you do without anybody questioning you about it. If you feel you don’t want to work for the next three weeks then its ok unlike an agency that might penalize you.
Though there are several advantages of being independent, it does come with its disadvantages. For example, you are in charge of your marketing then be prepared to spend a lot of money. Also, you have to take care of licenses and office rent.
