What Influences Phone Sex Caller Decisions?

As The Wall Street Journal reports, “Media consumption habits continue to shift rapidly, with mobile devices, social media, streaming services, and binge-watching redefining the landscape.”

That’s not likely earth-shattering news to you; but what is interesting about Deloitte’s Digital Democracy Survey are the insights you can put to use in terms of marketing your phone sex business. Particularly the fact that for millennials (ages 19-32) recommendations from their social media circle and online reviews now carry more weight than TV advertising.

Most of us cannot afford TV ads anyway. But look at what holds spots #3 & #4 — those are things you can use and leverage! These findings were also seen in the phone sex caller survey results.

According to my phone sex caller survey, phone sex callers most definitely do not make phone sex recommendations to their family & friends. And adult services are definitely limited in terms of what social media can be used. However, you can make the most of client feedback (and phone sex review sites).

While some platform sites, like NF, do not allow you to post or share member names, you can still refer callers & potential callers to your feedback pages via links. If you are lucky enough to have actual clients using social media, they can share their reviews of you — and you can then share them yourself. And you can use good old fashioned testimonials on your phone sex website too.

Phone Sex Caller Survey Results To Help You Work Your Phone Sex Business

Over the past five years, on & off, I’ve run a survey for phone sex callers. Compiling the data was no easy feat as one after another of the free survey sites either departed or no longer allowed free surveys. So, while the questions and the answer options remained the same, I needed to do some work before I could present the results of the nearly 5,000 responses. (To be precise, there were 4,773 survey participants).

First, I meticulously ran the numbers of each survey. Then, I had to compare the results to see if there were any trends or insights to be gained from each set of results; there was no statistically significant difference. Next, I combined all the survey result data, rendered charts & graphs — and compiled all the result findings into a whitepaper available for purchase via NiteFlirt.

The results of my analysis include, where notable, include any comments from survey participants who went that extra step to email their thoughts. (Any such comments are shared under anonymity and are provided as anecdotal support or clarification.)

Disclaimers: Survey participants were self-described paying phone sex clients who volunteered to participate in an online survey. In other words, it likely does not have a representative sample. For example, an online survey certainly is affected by the lack of participation in populations which are less likely to have internet access.

However, to my knowledge, this is the only survey which provides insights into some of the demographics, concerns, turn-ons & turn-offs, of paying phone sex callers. It is provided as helpful information in terms of marketing your phone sex business. It is available as PDF containing 3,300+ words, 26 pages, with 12 graphs. You can buy it here. The whitepaper is absolutely under copyright; there is no sharing, posting, publication, or other transmission of this report or its findings without my express written permission.

Once you read the phone sex survey whitepaper, if there’s something specific in the results you are looking for help with, if you’d like more detailed information about your specific target audience demographic, feel free to schedule your personal phone sex business consultation.

What You Can Learn About Culture From Sex & Sex Work

I was showing a PSO client how to use Google Trends yesterday when I spotted an interesting trend…

Question: According to Google, what region of the world has the highest probability of searching for femdom?

Answer: Syria.

(Click images for larger views.)

phonesexfemdomsyria

Not only has there been a growing interest in female domination services, but the increase in such Syrian searches appears to align with rise of the Syrian conflict or Syrian Civil War which began in 2011 with the Arab Spring protests.

Also, this fetish interest has sharply increased — some might even say it has “spiked” — in recent weeks. In fact, a closer look shows that Syria has a lot of related femdom searches — including a number of “Breakout” search terms, such as for feet, fetish, etc. In case you don’t know what “Breakout” means, it is defined by Google as a search term which grew by more than 5000%. Yes, 5000%!

syriafemdomfetish

Part of me wants to go down a deep rabbit hole and research the possible causes and connections. But that’s time, and time is money. So I’m just going to go with what I know about human sexuality and sex work in general:

1.) When human beings are stressed, there is a strong increase in sex drives especially in terms of desires of the kinky and taboo kind. (And what can be more taboo in a culture that demands women submit to men than femdommes?)

2.) Those professing extreme conservatism, be it religious or political, are often doing so to suppress their own taboo urges. (Can you say, “hypocrites”?)

If you, like I, are seeing an increase in such international callers (often most visible to me in the demand for all sorts of religious humiliation sex game requests), this may explain it.

Magic Numbers?

During yesterday’s consultation, a client asked a common question: Is there a best age for a PSO to be?

While platform sites often have a “member since” date showing in your profile (making math possible!), here’s some data on ages men find “attractive”:

Data_9780385347372_3p_all_r1.j.indd

Charts from OKCupid, showing how straight women and men rate each other based on ages. For women, the men they find most attractive are roughly their own age. For men, the women they find most attractive are roughly the same age – 20 to 23 – regardless of the age of the man.

NiteFlirt Launches New “Visitors by Referrer” Reports

In a rather stunning move, NiteFlirt positively responded to PSO outcries over the new policy change requiring the removal of statistic gathering services by implementing another Performance Report tool: their own internal statistics and referral counter of sorts. The new Listing Page Analytics, which primarily tracks Visitors by Referrals, launched yesterday, August 28, 2013, in the following forum announcement:

We’ve added a new Performance Report that shows how many people are visiting your listings and what sites they are coming from. Use the drop down menu in the upper left and scroll down to the Visitors by Referrer report. Pick the listing you want to analyze, and click “Generate Report”.

The report format may change in the future. Currently, the report shows the last 14 days worth of activity and shows up to 100 top referrers during that time period. It contains a chart of number of visitors by day, broken out into four major referrer groups: Direct via Niteflirt, Outside Referral (which can include mail, e.g from links in messages you may have sent), Organic Search, and Paid Search, where the payer for search was either NiteFlirt or you.

The report also contains a list of the exact referring link that brought the visitor to NiteFlirt in general or directly to your listing.

We hope this new report helps you to better manage your business. Enjoy!

Overall, this is good news — if only for the fact that the phone sex platform is responding to the concerns of PSOs and is providing PSOs with tools to help them more effectively run their businesses.

But what about the functionality of this new tool?

First, it should be noted that you only get data for each of your operator listings; to get them, you must select each listing, one by one, from the drop-down box at the top left. (If you have a lot of traffic, expect to wait while the data loads.) This “by listing” means of organization also means that you do not get data for your operator profile page, so you if you primarily link to your profile page, not a specific listing, it seems you won’t get specific data on that. Another gap in tracking visitors is regarding calls made by callers using their “Favorites” listings. NF Support states that if callers do not visit an individual listing page, there are no visits to include in the reports. (That makes sense, if you think about it!)

Also, NF officially stated that this information tracks actual visitors, not clicks, saying, “A single visitor might view your listing multiple times; they’ll only be counted here once.” And your own visits to your pages are not filtered out, which means the system will also be showing you the visits of other PSOs checking out your listings as well.

Second, note that if your listing is not accepted there are no performance results. This was a bit surprising (and disappointing) as listing which are classified as having “Needs Editing” status are supposedly still accessible and receiving visitors — and are noted on the site as such:

If you are content with driving your own business to the listing using Call Buttons, then you don’t have to address this issue; you can begin marketing your business immediately.

You’ll see this information presented with my Phone Sex Secrets listing (which has the “Needs Editing” status because it is not an entertainment service).

As a result of this, in order to maintain my veil of secrecy, I will have to show you a screenshot from another one of my other phone sex personalities at NiteFlirt (with no identifying information). I opted for one “on hiatus” beause less traffic means you can more easily see the information (the four categories and referral list).

stats nf listing small

Here’s what the new reports give you.

The four data categories are:

Blue – direct traffic from Niteflirt itself. This includes everything from visitors finding your listings in the categories at NF to links you send in messages via the NF message system. It also includes visits from someone who used a bookmark or typed in the URL to come to the site or listing.

Pink – Referrals from outside NF, including links on other sites, links sent in emails, etc. Per NF Support, “The referrer is the visit referrer, i.e. the place from which the visitor came to their first page on NF. That first page may or may not have been your listing page.”

Green – Organic Searches, from search engines. Note, however, that you will not receive information on keywords or search terms used.

Purple – Paid Search, “cost per click” advertising done on Google. This includes ads you placed as well as those NF itself placed. This does not have anything to do with paid Featured listing results; they have their own reports.

By clicking each of the labeled color boxes at the bottom of the graph, you can remove categories for better focus.

This category info graph is followed by the actual referral info. The referrals listed at the bottom are details about the visits shown in pink, and it’s here that you’ll find the most useful information in terms of your marketing efforts, especially in terms of links placed and/or paid for at other sites. NF Support notes, “[W]hat we’re showing is the referrer of the visit. If there is no direct link to you from the reported link, the visitor came to NF via a referrer unrelated to you and clicked around to eventually find your listing.”

I hope it is clear to you that this new NF data, however imperfect, is how you can track the effectiveness of your marketing efforts and advertising campaigns in terms of traffic — for nothing in this system covers conversion rates (how often a visitor places a call or pays for other services). But at least this is a start.
