Agency girls vs. independent escorts

1. How to become an escort at an agency?

An escort agency is an organisation that provides services delivered by escorts or companions for customers. Usually these services include intimate activities, though they are not guaranteed. Whatever happens in the booked time between the companion and the client is consensual as prostitution is illegal in most countries. An escort agency typically arranges an encounter between one of its companions and a client at a given address which can be his home, resort or hotel or at a location preferred by the companion (outcall). Some escort agencies specialize in delivering escorts for longer durations such as having a business trips and vacations (travel companions).

Important functions of an agency: Doing a proper screening of clients to ensure they’re not a danger, providing security. Some agencies reportedly have gotten girls hooked on drugs, then they rely on the drugs to keep the girls working for them.

Find reputable escort agencies. You have to look for escort agencies that always consider their employees’ needs. Look at the security arrangements of the agencies and how they check clients. Check if you are comfortable with the people in the agency. This is a people business; you will be around with other employees, so you have to be comfortable with them.
Benefits op working for an escort agency
One of the big advantages of working for an escort agency is that you don’t have to worry about organising dates and escort marketing. Most of the agencies around there will do this hard and time-consuming job for you. On your behalf, they will set up your profile and picture gallery on several directories which is great for new girls in the industry who are not yet familiar with these advertising skills.  

Being part of an agency is also great as it will safeguard your security and privacy. As a beginner in the industry they will only let you date with verified clients from their network. When you get more experienced, they will precheck potential clients. On top of that they will send you a text message before and after the actual date to make sure that you left without incidents. This is a great security system to guarantee that you are safe.

A third pro of working for an agency is that you will not have to deal with clients on the phone. A great deal of time are actually timewasters which can end up being incredibly frustrating. An experienced receptionist knows the skills to deal with them and to only filter trustworthy clients through the selection process.
Drawbacks of working for an escort agency
Of course, being an agency escort isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Therefore, a lot of call girls prefer to work independently. One of the reasons for that is that as an independent girl can speak directly to the client to get to know them. Through the phone they can figure out if she and the client will be a good match.

Another disadvantage of working for an agency is that some put a lot of pressure on the girls to provide services that they don’t want to. Also, when demands are high, they might be pushed to work 24 hours a day. It’s easy for clients to spot this and it will make them feel uncomfortable which can result in negative reviews on boards.

As a last con you have to realize that working for an agency means that you will have to give a percentage of the earned fee to them. Usually this is around 25 to 30 per cent per booking. For some this is great deal of money which makes them decide to work independently and stay away from escort agencies.

One danger: Some men keep their eyes open for new girls and try to take advantage of them (including rape, beatings and robbery). Therefore, screen clients wisely. Get to know if he has seen other escorts before by checking an escort blacklist database. Check the client also at the National Sex Offender Registry to assure if he is not a sex offender.

Learn to say no. You can say no if it is needed. Do not do things that you are uncomfortable with. Be firm with your boundaries and say no and tell him that you can’t do it.
