Welcome to Escorts Direct!
A comprehensive setup guide to help you in setting up your Escorts Direct advertising.
ALL THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE – unless you happen to be in the adult industry!
That’s why we set up Escorts Direct, so that adult providers have a realistic advertising medium for their services.
Clients can join too – to join in on our Private Messaging system – an exclusive feature at Escorts Direct!
So how does it work?
Follow our Escorts Direct setup guide…
1 – Log In
Sounds a little obvious here, but to gain access to the listings manager, or to send private messages, you need to be logged in. Enter a username, and a password, and hit the blue button – it’s that simple! Just check your email to confirm and you’re good to go!
2- Your Profile
This is not required, but we think it gives an extra outlet for you to grab some advertising. Hit the DASHBOARD button (My Account in the footer on a mobile) and you will have instant access to your listings, your feedback, your messages, and much more. Don’t worry about your information becoming public, as any visitor to your profile page will be halted at the above image, where they have an option to send you a private message.
3- Placing your Listings
Ok ,this is what you’ve been waiting for – placing your listing on Escorts Direct! After you made sure that you’re logged in, you’ll be hitting the ‘Add New Listing’ button from the main menu, when you’ll be greeted with this little lot –
From the left – you will see the choice of choosing either a FREE listing, or a FEATURED listing. The listings manager is set to FREE by default, so if you wanted a FEATURED listing, make sure to enable it by clicking on it. There will also be the option to choose daily ‘POPS’ at £1 per day – featured listings have this option enabled by default. If you wanted to revert to a FREE listing at any time after your pops and/or featured listing has elapsed, either just leave it, or ensure that you click on FREE listing to renew. You can renew a FEATURED listing at any time by clicking on the ‘RENEW’ button.
Next along, is the ‘Listings Description’ button. This will be open by default, and have a brief outline regarding advertising with Escorts Direct, plus of course the Listings Description box. Add the title of your listing, and then add the description – there is a 100 word minimum on this. These fields are both REQUIRED.
Next is the ‘Listing Details’ box, where all your information gets saved. Choose an affiliation – either escort, massage, agency or otherwise, and top things up by adding your Twitter address, your Facebook address, your phone number, and your website address. All of this info will be added to your listing. For your own convenience, and knowing that some adult providers do not have web accounts, only the Affiliation and Phone Number fields are REQUIRED.
The ‘Listings Category’ box looks a little daunting at first, but it’s really easy to use –
You can advertise in up to 30 areas. In the above example, someone is advertising in the North East area, and wants to add localities to their listing, which they do by adding Newcastle, or Durham, or Sunderland, or even all three to their listing. You can either check ‘North East’ or not, its up to you. To advertise in those areas with just one option, eg Worldwide or XXX Phone Sex, you MUST choose your category as this option is REQUIRED.
The next part of this section deals with your Listing Attachments. You are able to add up to 30 attachments, which is enough for even the busiest escort agency to cope with. Please make sure that your photos are reduced in size (by megabytes, not physically made to be smaller), otherwise they might not load up. This option is REQUIRED.
The ‘Listings Location’ box is the final one, and gives a full explanation on why those advertising in areas with single locations should fill this one in.
The onsite map at the moment shows a view of London. If you were to type in your area of work into the ‘Physical Location Box’, be that Gateshead, some area of Russia, or Vatican City (though we don’t suppose many adult providers will be working from there!) the map will refresh to show exactly where you say you’ll be working from. Your area will then be searchable in the ‘Country, Area, City’ boxes. This is essential for those using ‘Worldwide’ as their area of work, and could also be useful for those in the UK in letting clients know where you are. This option is OPTIONAL but nevertheless recommended.
After that, its as simple as hitting the SAVE button to publish your listing!
Please note – listings published in the FREE section and the FEATURED section will need admin approval before going live.
We hope that you’ve enjoyed reading this setup guide for Escorts Direct, and now its ALL UP TO YOU!
