INDEPENDENT OR AGENCY – EITHER OR BOTH? WHO CARES AS LONG AS IT’S HONEST? PART 2

We opened our Sydney office in Australia in 2012 with no knowledge of the local market other than being told by ladies and gents that our services would be a great addition to the Australian market

It wasn’t long before we learnt that Australia has ‘privates’ not independents and agencies have a terrible reputation

Atlantic might have been a great addition to the market but it has been a way a bigger challenge than we thought

From people I have chatted with it seems in the past agencies in Australia had a bad reputation for fake photos, bait & switch and generally being shit, shonky & charging high fees to escorts

Being a ‘private’ became the way to prove you weren’t being controlled by an agency who was taking half the booking fee

This great divide between agency & private has grown by advertising sites marketing as ‘Privates only’

These private only ad sites make sense from an advertising site perspective but not every escort wants to do her own calls and administration work so rather than miss out ladies & agency’s got creative

A private profile on these sites does not guarantee that you are speaking to a lady directly or that the lady you meet isn’t paying a percentage of the fee to someone else

Rather than use the word ‘agency’ there is Private page managers, profile Managers, Managed ladies, ladies with booking assistants, ladies with PA’s & EA’s & my recent favourite a lady with a  ‘client provider’

A few weeks ago I met a lady who had sent in a casting form to us

She told me she has always been a private escort but wanted to work with Atlantic due to our International presence

During the course of the Interview I asked ‘how do you find taking your own calls in Australia?’

She said “I have never taken a call I don’t do that, yuk”

So I got nosey lol

I said “As a private don’t you take your own calls?

She said “no my manager does”

I said ‘do they answer a booking assistant or as you?’

She replied “She just pretends she is me it’s easier to get bookings that way”

I said ‘wow so she charges a monthly fee or a percentage’

She said “percentage 40%”

I asked what else she got for her 40% and she said ‘she pays for my profiles & I pay for my photos’

At another interview a lady told me her Agency managed over 10 private escorts.  All the girls are text only with private profiles on a well known website. The receptionist was often quite busy so the girls would help with the texts while they waited in the office for bookings to come in.  She said it was annoying because she often got sent on kinky bookings when she is vanilla and doesn’t do any kink at all  She wanted to join us because she was sick of getting bookings that weren’t right for her, lying to clients & paying 40% to an agency that only did SMS bookings.  She said it was too much for doing so little….

By excluding Honest Agency Advertising on the ‘private only’ sites the ‘faux private’ has prospered and these advertising sites don’t care, it’s more money in their bank accounts. Just as long as you don’t ruin their advertising spiel….

Recently we had a lady forced to stop working with us because an ad site told her that she can’t be private and be on the Atlantic website as well. She was told if you work with an agency as well you aren’t independent. LOL. An independent woman can’t choose to earn from 2 revenue streams (which makes sense right?) and wasn’t the whole reason behind the whole ‘private’ movement to stop agencies controlling girls? Now ad sites can do it instead…

If we don’t care if the lady is promoting herself, taking all her own calls, emails etc & also accepting appointments from Atlantic, then why does an advertising site that makes revenue from advertising care?

I could stop all the disdain we receive for being an  agency by closing our Australia site and becoming a ‘booking service’ but that just seems silly. Atlantic is known for representing great girls and our reputation keeps our ladies bills paid

Using Agency Atlantic is an honest transaction whether you are a client or an escort

If a client phones Agency Atlantic they know they are speaking to a receptionist and questions can be answered without feeling uncomfortable.  A client also has someone to come back to if the time they spent with the escort is unsatisfactory

At an Escort’s interview we discuss their needs and also clearly discuss the cost involved to work with us; what is included for that cost & also how we work on a daily basis

Ladies decide for themselves if they wish to work with us and they can leave any time they wish.  We do not approach ladies, force them sign up with us or make them stay.  We provide a lot of service for our fee & work hard & long hours to make sure our ladies are successful

We promote some amazing girls and they don’t need to lie that they are private or pretend that they spoke to the client when he phoned

Our ladies don’t spend their days on twitter or being harassed on the phone by timewasters; they attend their escort meetings focused on the client not stressed by their latest stalker or whatever.  For ladies and gents, Agency offers an additional layer of privacy

Private VS Agency – there is no right or wrong the only thing I think is wrong is pretending a lady is private when she isn’t

Private is perfect for some ladies just as Agency works best for others. I only wish there was more honesty in Australian Escort  Advertising

Independent or Agency – Either or Both? Who cares as long as it’s honest?

Agency Or Independent

When we started Agency Atlantic in London in 2002 there was a few online agencies in London (maybe 10 or so) and a few places for us to advertise.  There was a couple of independent escorts with websites but not many

We advertised on the Internet as well as print media; places like Big Colour Pages & the Herald Tribune Newspaper

Online there were bulletin boards (similar to backpage), Top 100 sites, Captain69, Punternet and a few other sites that are not longer around

Back then just like now, escorts were identified as either an Independent Escort or Agency Escort

Independent Escorts were the ladies who answer their own calls, do their own marketing, emails and make all their own arrangements.  Most Independent Escorts have their own website too

Agency Escorts choose to work with an agency rather than go it alone

In some cases Independent Escorts will choose to work with an agency as well as do their own Independent work

An escort agency is similar to other types of agencies (acting, modeling, literary, sports). They usually have a client base, website, admin/support staff and industry experience

The terms of an agency agreement are different with each agency and sometimes even different for different ladies within the same agency

Some Agencies are friendly, professionally run businesses (like Atlantic), some are draconian, some are owned by pimpy type dudes, some have a criminal element and some are owned & run by absolute f9cking narcassistic lunatics

The one thing that all agencies have in common is that the escorts on the books of the agency don’t have to answer calls, emails, pay for ads or deal with the untold number of timewasters that can occur when you are an independent

Prior to Atlantic when I was an escort I had my own independent site and I also worked with an agency

If I wasn’t able to answer my calls or my emails it didn’t matter as my agency was.  They were answering calls 10am til 1am so when I was working or sleeping or taking a holiday, they were making arrangements so I didn’t lose out on bookings and financially it just made sense

Sure they took a fee but without them I would never had the booking at all

I used the same name and photos for both independent and agency.  www.Captain69.co.uk has a very useful alias link for clients so my website and agency were linked.   I found that gents never cared whether they booked me thru the agency or with me directly as long a I showed up as arranged

Some preferred to speak to me directly but 80% could not have cared less. Many booked thru my agency the first time and subsequent meetings directly with me.  They liked the security of booking with an agency so if something went wrong there was someone to go back to, complain and hopefully get compensation

In around 2006 one of my favourite advertising sites started in London; now there is over 10,000 escorts listed; Independent escorts and agency escorts co-exist on

www.LondonEscortGuide.com (LEG)

Ladies can be are listed on LEG under their agency as well as on their independent page

Some of the Atlantic ladies are listed on LEG as independents as well as listed with us and some Atlantic ladies are on other agencies as well as Independent and Atlantic.  We don’t mind  We like an open & honest working relationship.  We understand that ladies are in this industry to earn so we don’t enforce rules to stop them maximising their earnings

Atlantic has been arranging International Tours since 2004 and we found most countries have the same classifications; independent and agency

That was until we got to Australia…

“Your Rates Should be Higher”

“Your rates should be higher”

On every single tour one of our ladies will hear this at least once but often several times

Gents who say this mean it as a compliment but this unsolicited business advice can cause issues so why not rather than give advice give the lady a tip.  If you think a lady should be $1000, pay her $1000.

Telling a lady ‘your rates should be higher’ is advice that can create more harm than good

It is wonderful for a ladies self esteem to hear that she could command double her fee. But unfortunately doubling her fee may mean sometimes a lady can be be left unable to pay her bills

Atlantic have been arranging International tours since 2002 so we have a lot of experience in what works & what doesn’t. Ladies choose their own rate structure but we do discuss and advise if we think a lady will have problems

I remember many years ago a lady said to me ‘everyone keeps saying my rates should be higher’ I tried to explain that in the city she was touring; this was the same as saying ‘thank you, I had a wonderful time and you are a wonderful lady’

The lady doubted what I said; which was understandable as every 2nd person had made out that essentially, Atlantic was doing her a disservice

I told her if she want to change them it’s fine, but I didn’t think it was a great idea. So her rates were changed for her next tour

She covered her costs but her profit wasn’t great and she definitely didn’t nudge her university debt – this lady toured during her uni holidays to help pay off a uni debt & have a little holiday at the same time

She thought it was Atlantic so she left & went to different agency who advertised higher rates

5 days into her tour, she contacted me asking for my help. After 5 days on higher rates at the other agency; she had booked 1hr & the tour was going to put her further in debt

She came back to Atlantic on the same rates she had started with and finished her tour happy and with a nice profit

We would love all ladies to be on $2000+ per hour but the reality is that being business like any other, rates are dictated by consumer economics. To be honest I am often shocked by how even a $50 difference in a ladies hourly rate can be the difference between a successful tour & a total fail

Victoria – Statuesque Australian Babe – mature beyond her young years

Why did you choose to become an Escort?
I was ready for a change, the hours worked well with my day to day commitments. Escorting is a way of expression, I felt the need to also connect with people I usually wouldn’t cross paths with!
In a way, having an intelligent conversation was satisfying to me, and with escorting came interesting stories and conversationalists
Being in my early 20’s it opened my mind further

Why did you choose to work with Agency Atlantic?
I first met Sarah socially with another agency manager that she is friends with. She seemed nice.  About a month ago I was talking to the agency manager she mentioned Atlantic & Sarah to me and thought they might be a good fit for me.  And here I am

It’s going great and I am very happy. Sarah, Bec, Meg and Liz have all been a great support to me.  Sarah’s years of experience in this industry show & she is really helpful and knows so many things I never even thought of

Another reason I am happy I joined Atlantic is ZOE :)  anyone who is reading please please please book us for double; she is the bomb and I love getting her naked haha

What are the best parts of being an escort?
Most important experience is having clients that totally immerse themselves into the sessions they book with me, there is nothing more amazing than that!
Also, the fact of being at University has got me tied into forever planning around my class schedules, not my work. Therefore, being able to choose the hours I work is much preferred for me, personally.

How often do you travel, and what’s your favourite place to visit?
I try and travel once a year, I get so caught up in everyday life here in Sydney. I usually don’t plan things – they normally happen randomly, which has its pros and cons.

I love getting out into nature, trekking … anything that involves a bit of culture and shock, I am definitely in for. I also don’t mind the occasional resort veg-out on a tropical island Hawaii, Bali, New Caledonia, Fiji!

Where would you love to go next?
Spain, all for it. Music, food, culture.
Another would be the Great Silk Road, involves travelling through China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan for 30 days.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Miami, the hot weather and Cuban influence

3 things you can’t live without?
Cherry Lip balm, tiramisu, baileys

What’s your favourite type of rendezvous?
A dinner date with a few great people, drinks and tiramisu :)

Top 3 tips for clients to ensure they have a great time with you.
Hygiene – this is very important to me, if you have great hygiene I will automatically be more attracted to you!

Kiss me upon arrival – I always enjoy some form of cheeky play. So a cheeky peck once you arrive will make me swoon

Manners/ Chivalry – Nothing turns me on more than a man with manners

Which feature do others compliment you on the most?
Being understanding, and finding the beauty in almost everything and everyone. Knowing that being reasonably different is unique, and that we shouldn’t be judged for having an opinion. My statuesque body and eyes.

What’s your favourite cuisine?
Japanese

Favourite cocktail?
Anything that contains citrus in it e.g. Caipirinha

Is there a charity that is dear to you?
Australian Cancer Research Foundation

What is your favourite quote?
“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

How do you spend your down time? What’s your idea of relaxation?
Usually enjoy solitude, I love doing absolutely nothing and not having to worry about being anywhere!
