Promoting Your Phone Sex Business With Business Cards & Printed Materials

A number of phone sex operators, especially those who’ve come from escorting, light upon the idea of ordering business cards or even postcards to discreetly drop around town, when they travel, etc. This practice is quite common in escorting and other sorts of sex work; go to a bar or a club, drop off a few cards for the patrons to find. It’s a form of real world trolling for customers, but it has much more personal risk.

1. While phone sex is legal, police and legal authorities may interpret your phone sex promotional pieces as solicitation. Law enforcement need not be present for you to get busted; all it takes is the club owner and/or disgruntled patrons to be offended by your cards and, catching you red-handed, call the police. You may find yourself branded with a legal scarlet letter or at least an arrest, while the police let the district attorney sort out the legality of your actions. Frightening, annoying, embarrassing — and expensive.

2. Any woman seen dropping off business cards for adult work may find themselves with unwanted non-paying attention of stalkers or worse who follow them out the club door, to their car, etc.  And in many of these cases, crime completed or crime attempted, police intervention will find you the one with the arrest and the criminal walking away without even a hand-slap.

For these reasons, it is customary for groups of people from one agency or business to travel in packs to promote the club. Cute girls chat for a bit then make for the door while a few men hang back to offer business cards to those men with crestfallen faces who appear to be sincere, not undercover. A few cards and other printed materials mange to be left on the tables, chairs, etc. in the now vacated area, waiting to be found by those interested parties. The larger group, especially those comprised with some male members, will deter most stalker situations; but not necessarily members of law enforcement. However, more bodies in an already crowded place means more cover for the discreet slight-of-hand placement of promotional materials.

It is also important to note that dropping your promotional literature and getting away cleanly isn’t the end of your troubles though; anyone — business owner, employee, club goer, police officer — can harass and legally pursue you for any number of charges (from morality and obscenity to canvassing and employee rights) via the contact information on your cards, flyers, etc.

If you are certain you can manage to discreetly and safely promote yourself — if you really want to try this, you should know that, like virtual trolling, this real world application of looking for potential clients is more complicated than it sounds. Here are a few other practical points to consider:

* First and foremost, phone sex is legal for adults only and any materials you drop off should only be left at places where only legal adults congregate. Otherwise you and your business are open to solicitation of a minor charges along with those mentioned above.

* Second, consider the targeting of such marketing. Is the place you are papering with promotional materials really where your potential clients are? If not, it’s not effective. Not merely a waste of your time and resources, but it may even be detrimental to your business. (More on target marketing to come.)

Should you find yourself still considering the dropping-off of promotional materials, or otherwise in need of print materials for your phone sex business, you can get cheap printing and even free business cards from places such as VistaPrint and Moo.
