Phone Sex Availability

What hours/days of the week are the best to make money during?
How many hours must I devote to my phone sex business?
I’m starting this part-time and my schedule is unpredictable, can I still make money?
Do I have to keep my phone line on for hours? Can I only be available by appointment?

I’m asked a lot about the hours a phone sex operator needs to work. So much so, I’m covering this again. But hopefully covering your questions more specifically…

The truth is, there’s no magic time of the day nor number of hours you must work to be successful. While “success” is a relative term, a PSO can make money any time of day or night, on any days of the week, with full-time or part-time hours. The trick is to know your market, your clients, to serve them well in whatever hours you have, and to properly promote and market yourself when you aren’t working directly with clients.

Without overly complicating this post, let’s look at the joint parts of the above statement.

To begin with, you ought to know your own schedule in terms of what time you have — both in terms of performing phone sex itself and in terms of time to promote your phone sex work.

Knowing the hours you have available for actual phone sex calls is important to focus on right from the start as this helps you identify the types of callers you would be appealing to in general. Some times of day (or night) and days of the week are more conducive to specific markets (types of callers), so it’s important to consider these realities first. Otherwise, you are just making things more difficult (labor intensive) for yourself and frustrating for your callers.

[Knowing your client base and target market is something you can — and ought to — use in your marketing, as well. It’s important in everything from posting hours of availability, best times for communication/email response, advertising, to your phone sex listing or description.]

When it comes to best serving your clients (and in turning potential clients into clients), it is best to communicate general hours of availability. In terms of times for calls themselves, as well as in terms of your availability to receive and respond to messages.

Regarding your general communication availability…. If you’ll be around to check messages daily, or multiple times a day, notices in your listings, at your blog, etc., is not so important. But if you won’t be checking messages over weekends, for example, it’s a simple courtesy to let them know that they need not worry if they do not hear from you until Monday. Trust me, letting your regular know of trips and vacation times in advance is not merely a courtesy for clients, but saves you a whole lot of work upon your return. *wink*

Now for the matter of hours of availability on the phone… Phone lines on/open for blocks of time or “by appointment only” is mainly a personal choice of business model or “style,” but there are some generalities.

Yes, you can have a profitable independent phone sex business based on scheduled appointments only.  These types of businesses tend to fall into two specific categories: phone sex operators with an established client base (i.e. for experienced PSOs) and/or those phone sex operators who cater to a more exclusive clientele (i.e. not the impulsive quick wank-off crowd). In both of these cases, however, there’s generally a regular set time (weekly, monthly) in which the PSO does “just have her phone line on,” her chat window open, is logged into the phone sex platform site, or is otherwise available to more spontaneous live contact with current clients and potential new clients.

Most PSOs, from stable full-time schedules to scattered and unpredictable very part-time hours, will have periods of time in which they are available to anyone who calls. This is especially true of new phone sex operators who have to start somewhere to get clients, even if they are hoping to use the “by appointment only” model.

Having the phone lines on and “just” waiting for calls is typically a large part of the business. While this can be unsettling, PSOs typically blog and work other aspects of their business. For many, this is not only a practical use of time, but it helps them stay in character.
