How To Choose A Phone Sex Company To Work For

Companies hiring phone sex operators and platforms for independents vary from well-established for decades to just starting up. No matter how established a phone sex service is, it will have a reputation or two — sometimes both good and bad reputations, depending who you are listening to. This is why it is imperative that you treat looking for a phone sex job as seriously as you would any other job.

Research any company before you consider accepting a job with them. Google the company name, number, website and anything you can think of, searching for clues and reviews. You’ll want to know what the PSOs have to say, of course, but don’t ignore what callers or clients say either — you’ll want to know if there’s an exodus as that will affect you and your business or paycheck.

While researching, keep in mind that people are more likely to voice complaints and negative experiences (and voice them more loudly!) than they are positive ones. That’s just human nature. So expect to turn up more negatives (or at least louder ones) than positives. However, you’ll want to beware of the cut & pasted complaints; that’s usually a sign of a flaming troll with a grudge or personal agenda, not a legitimate complaint. (Even if the issue stems from a real problem, it’s usually more of an isolated case than a true reflection of the business.)

I know a number of PSO hopefuls who whined that they had to look at a lot of sites from phone sex operators hawking their numbers and services before they found any “useful” information on the company itself; but remember, this is useful information too. The more people promoting a site or company, the more traffic and potential clients they are likely to have, right? And independents can learn a lot about how to (and how not to) structure and promote their own businesses from these pages and sites.

Once you’ve done some research, use PSO message boards. Many of them have designated areas just for reviewing/discussing companies, so you may find what you need right there. If you don’t, or the information seems outdated, and ask around.

Questions more specific than “Anyone know anything about Company XYZ?” will yield better results, so state your concerns. Remember, asking about income is not only a very personal thing but that people have reputations and characters to protect; femdoms and financial dommes are notorious for exaggerating their incomes. Stick with more factual questions such as, “Do they pay on time?” and “Are you reimbursed for trolling?” etc. Questions like, “Are the phones busy?” are rather subjective and relative to the individual’s experience and expectations. (And face it, the economy’s hurt everyone.) So focus on what’s important to you, what you need verified, and what can be measured or qualified somehow. And use your critical thinking skills to evaluate responses.

If phone sex work is new to you (and if you’re reading here, it likely is), remember that this is rather like any new career path — your income may not be stable, especially at first. Most assuredly so if you are considering working from home or as an independent PSO. Remember the old adage, “Don’t quit your day job”? It certainly applies here. Getting the gig is just step one. Keeping it, living with it, living off it — making the amount of money you need or desire — takes time and lots of work.
