In the world of Escorting, there are three main categories: Escort-Girls who work in Agencies, Independent Escorts and Courtesans.
The vast majority of Independent Escorts in Switzerland started in this industry by working via an Escort Agency, at an Erotic Studio or at a Gentlemen’s Club. Some will become very good independent Escorts, but only a small number of them will have the caliber to one day become an excellent courtesan.
This article is addressed to all those girls who are leaving an Agency to become independent escorts. Some will do very well, some will survive, some will fail because despite appearances, working as an independent Escort is not limited to finding a hotel / apartment, getting a phone number and posting an ad on the internet. If that is all it takes to be successful as an Independent Escort in Switzerland, it would come out and all the girls would choose this path.
In this article, I am not going to talk about how to become an Independent Escort in Switzerland but rather how to leave an Agency properly to start as a Freelancer. Too many proud girls are leaving the Agency which has given them a chance to get started, a name and/or a reputation.
So here is what I advise you not to do when you leave an Agency for fear that over time, this same Agency will turn against you or make your life hard. And most of the time, in this industry, faced with a well-established Escort Agency – that is operating legally and has nothing to be ashamed of – , you have almost no chance of winning if they go after you.
* Do not steal Agency’s clients
You’ve decided to go, no problem. But start from scratch and build your own customers base. Don’t use Agency clients to help you bounce back. It is too easy and unfair. It is wanting the butter, the money of the butter and the smile of the dairyman. Never forget that the clients of an established Agency who are satisfied with the service of that Agency will tend to take the Agency’s side, not necessarily yours. These are the same clients that you kept in touch with who will inform the Agency of your new place of work, of your modus operandi …
* Don’t insult the Agency that once gave you a chance
Whatever the reason you decided to leave that Agency, do it with respect and avoid conflicts. But above all, once you have left, avoid talking badly about this Agency, which at one point made you earn a lot of money. It’s like in the work force. I don’t know if you’ve ever had a “conventional” job, but in the real job market, you don’t criticize your ex-employer in front of a potential new employer. Your negative comments questioning the quality of the services offered by your former Agency, in such a way that they encourage customers to turn away from it. This characterizes acts of denigration and towards these customers, you are finally showing your true personality…
* Use your own text and photos
Many girls – like the one in the picture above- think they are smarter than others. They leave an Agency (without which they would certainly never have made so much money in such a short time) and instead of working with their own text and / or photos, they continue to use the contents / descriptions of the Agency while they are no longer part of it. Why? Their insecurity is greater than it looks and despite of their courage, they are afraid and unsure of earning as much money as they used to at their former place of work. So to in order to create trouble and confusion among the Agency’s clients (whom they would like to keep seeing), they continue to use the same name, the same text and often the same photos, hoping that these clients will not immediately realize that they are no longer part of that Agency. Very sneaky!
* Maintain your Level
When you leave a Swiss Escort Agency that helped you establish yourself in this market, it is because it was certainly a good one that brought you good clients. When you leave to become an independent Escort, maintain the level of that Agency without which you certainly would not have had the courage to go on your own as an independent Escort in Switzerland. The way you present yourself, communicate with customers, receive your clients must remain the same (or even better) if you want to keep those customers who will perhaps follow you. Your workplace should be aligned with what made your reputation. Do not neglect the district/area where you receive your customers! Here in Switzerland, there are places where no client of a certain standing will ever come to see you, even if you think the opposite … As the saying goes, the three most important things in a local business are : “Location, location and location!”
* Be very vigilant with your prices
There are girls who really think they are smarter than the rest (see image above). As an Independent Escort in Switzerland, they still rely on the clients of the Agency hoping that thanks to them, they will continue to make money but increase their rates in a disproportionate way and hope that these regular clients (clients they desperatly need) will rush on them, no matter how much it costs because they are so special … Nonsense and not very rational. The right price is a subject that I will cover soon in another article. I am not against a price increase, but in my opinion, it must be done at the right time and must be justified, especially when you live in a country where price for sex is two or three times cheaper than in Switzerland. Ladies, you must stop taking Swiss customers for idiots, especially in the difficult economic, social and health context in which we all currently find ourselves.
I will close this chapter by insisting on the fact that I am for the emancipation of Escort-Girls. On the other hand, I believe that as in any other industry, parting with an employee or an employer must be done with respect and good judgment. It goes both ways.
If you don’t get in its way, the Agency will have no interest in hindering yours. In Switzerland, prostitution is a legal and a regulated activity. Well-established Erotic Agencies, Clubs and Erotic Studios are legally established. Why should you have a provocative and unfair attitude towards an Agency that has enough information about you to put you in troubles ?
And if you owe money to this Agency, pay your debts before leaving and behave in such a way that, that Agency/Club/Erotic Studio has nothing to reproach you once you are gone.
The best is always to leave on good terms and go your own way because as the German proverb says : “We always meet twice in life …”.
