What’s Coming To Phone Sex? The Exclusive MPS Interview!

Those of you using MPS know there are always things going on at the MyPhoneSite phone sex platform. That’s why I’m so thrilled that Gary, the owner of the site, has finally been able to participate in an interview!

Hi, Gary, and welcome! Will you please tell us a bit about yourself and your professional background?

I was born in Florida where I spent much of my life. I graduated there with a Bachelor degree in computer science and started my career as a network analyst in Orlando. The job sucked.. 9 hours stuffed into a tiny cubicle and a 2 hour commute through hellish I-408 traffic. It was 20 miles from my apartment to the job but took an hour. On the side I did some freelance work and business was picking up. Eventually I was able to go into business myself full time and work from home.

When & why did you start MPS?

I put together a small team consisting of myself and 3 other developers. We worked on a lot of projects and became very successful at building social networks. This was during the time that most online commerce was moving from static sites to interactivity (Myspace, Facebook, etc). I had the idea to provide a social network style site that gave people the option of connecting via phone, and MPS slowly became a reality.

It wasn’t an overnight idea. I just wanted to find a way to use social networking style modules to generate income on a pay per minute basis, while at the same time giving people the option to create their own site. There are a lot of very creative people that have an entrepreneur spirit, but lack the resources to get started. So I wanted to tap into that market. Interactivity via phone made sense as everything is moving toward mobile. This can then be enhanced to include text messages and much more.

I’m glad you brought that up. I’m dying to know when the paid chat and SMS texting will start.

The paid chat system needs to be well thought out to provide plenty of room for growth. It is also a joint venture with another company so this collaboration requires a bit of team work. We planned on having this finished a long time ago, but as we added new features on MPS we realized that the paid chat system needs to be designed to work with the new features. So we had to delay it while we finish the basic groundwork.

Here’s an example: We are currently developing an ‘all-in-one’ status management system for MPS. This means that soon you will be able to import every operator account you work based on the phone number the account is linked to, regardless of what site that account is on. You will then be able to set the status of all accounts instantly with one click or automate the status (if you receive a call on one characters all other characters show ‘x’). However as we started to develop this we decided to add additional features; like add notes for each customer and receive incoming call alerts.

Our current chat system is ok, but if you work multiple sites it is very hard to chat as multiple characters (unless you open multiple browsers). So we are integrating the new PPM chat system with the ‘all-in-one’ status management system. This means you will be able to open one browser window and chat as every character regardless of what site they are on. If you are chatting as multiple characters and one becomes a paid chat then all other chats will show ‘in private chat’ and you will only see the paid chat. Once your paid chat is over all chat windows will show the character(s) as available again. PPM chats can also be upgraded to PPM calls. But there’s a lot that goes into this and we have to move slowly to make sure it is done correctly. *We are also changing the pop-up call dial pads into the chat window. This means that from the customer’s perspective they will see a chat icon option under your character’s image. If they click on this it will open the dial pad but it will be for live chat. This way if they upgrade to a live call it’s all right there.

There are many other features we are adding to this and we are on course to have this completed this summer.

What are some of the other features you have planned for MPS?

Our pay per SMS will also be built into the status management system so operators can reply to text messages. They will be able to do this over the phone or online through the status management. We are also changing the current ‘book session’ feature on the call buttons. Soon when your characters are offline the customer will have the option to receive an text message once you sign back on. The operator will also receive a text when the customer(s) request this option. There are tons of features we are working on as we are always trying to improve the platform.

Your dedication to improving the platform — and your great customer service with the PSOs — is why I love MPS. Did NiteFlirt and it’s set backs after AT&T purchased Keen have anything to do with settling in on phone sex for your social network? Have you learned anything from NiteFlirt?

NiteFlirt was not part of the decision at all. In fact I did not set MPS up as an adult platform. I just created the infrastructure and let the market decide where it goes.

I appreciate your compliments on the platform. There are some areas for improvement and you will see these areas being addressed as we move forward.

Among the future features, will we be able to better customize our MPS sites and pages?

The templates are very basic and do not give much room for creativity, I know. But we had to have a simple option that basically allowed people to just click on what style they wanted. An advanced option is coming that will allow the web owner to control the header, layout, footer and even CSS. We are developing this in a way that the template will be saved so if the web owner screws things up she can easily go back to the default. It’s a feature that has been requested for some time now and its way overdue. I will do my best to have this available by the summer as well (around July).

Rumor has it that MPS is considering going into the model content business… Is that true?

It’s amazing how fast this stuff gets around.

Well, we phone sex operators are a chatty bunch. *wink*

The answer is, “No and yes.” MPS is not going into the model content business. However we have several contacts with agencies in Europe and there is an opportunity to work with them to create custom image sets and videos. This idea came about as part of our review because there is a real deficit in original model content. So we are setting up a separate business that will handle model content specifically for MPS providers. This means you will be able to log into the site (it will be on a different domain), and view the available models. But this will be different then any normal model content site.

For example you will see results from recent castings and be able to hire models and provide the modeling script (poses, etc). The work will all be custom and exclusive. The contacts we have are able to find ‘real’ people as models and not over glamorized fake looking models. Also all images will be protected. If someone steals the images from you we will be able to track exactly where they are and issue a DMCA. This is all still being put together but most of the work has already been done. An update will be available in a couple weeks.

I’d like to thank Gary for making the time to finish this interview after such a big project as the site-wide reviews.
And I have to say, it sure is nice to have a phone sex platform company that understands the needs of the business — after all, if we PSOs are making money, so is the platform company!
