A Review Of PSO Promos

PSO Promos is a Tumblr site which is accepting free promotional listings for independent PSOs or Flirts at NiteFlirt.

Before I can share my thoughts on the effectiveness of this site, a discussion of Tumblr itself is necessary.

To save some time, here’s a review of Tumblr which should tell you something about the site itself, which is part blog, part curartion site, and part community or social media site. In terms of being a free service — and one that is accepting of adult content, it’s fair. A few of my characters use it quite effectively; in part because adult sites are typically low on comments (that are not spam) and because I mange them well. And, Tumbler, like any site, does take some mastery in terms of cultivating an audience. In the case of independent PSOs, this means capturing your target market of potential callers. And Tumblr can be a huge time-suck. That’s costly if you aren’t disciplined enough to include your time as part of the investment in ROI.

Now, back to PSO Promos

In a strict marketing sense, the site is muddled.

First, the site mixes the niches of phone sex operators. That can be somewhat managed via tags and even skillfully exploited to assist PageRank for PSOs main sites and/or listings. However, there is the chance of alienating and turning off potential callers (for example, by exposing them to kink beyond their tolerance). Especially if there’s no unity in theme. Right now, what PSO Promos looks like in terms of a theme is “glorified classified ads.”

But they are kind of screwing that up too.

Which brings us to the second muddled point.

PSO Promos goes beyond basic shilling and, in between the PSO listings for potential callers, there’s business advice for PSOs themselves.

What?!

Now who is going to follow this site? Are potential callers going to have the dedicated patience to scroll past the helpful list of tools for PSOs — and, in some cases, depictions and descriptions of things which turn them off — just to hopefully find a turn on? Are PSOs going to scroll past ad after ad for women who are, essentially, their competition, to find a helpful tip?

As I said, some of this can still be used to help with PageRank, SEO, etc. — but only if the site or page itself has any weight to give. And in order for the page to have any weight at all, it needs to have followers — especially from other Tumblr folks who will reblog the posts made. And, you guessed it, this issue circles back to “Just who is going to read or follow this site?”

The bottom line is that PSO Promos may worth submitting your ad to if you are a PSO using the NiteFlirt platform; it’s free and doesn’t even cost you a link back. But don’t expect a flood of a action.
