Escort services are considered to be part of the adult entertainment industry. For many people it is a thoroughly respectable and more importantly a legal profession. Urban places in the UK, especially the big cities see the presence of many escort services, and there is no reason why you can’t start one, given the fact that you have the right ingredients for success.

This guide is meant to get you started on your escort business research. By the end of this guide, you should have a fairly good idea of what it takes to run an escort service that makes you money.

Can you make money?

The escort industry is one of the largest entertainment industries in the world. Not only that, it is also one of the most lucrative businesses in the world with billions of dollars-worth of revenue being generated each year. The question then isn’t whether an escort agency is lucrative or not. It is about whether you have the ability to make money out of it.

Many people contend that the escort industry is on the decline. However, evidence suggests that more and more money is being made by escort agencies each year. Rates are at an all-time high. More and more people are looking for professional escorts each year, and they are willing to pay higher prices for the really smart ones.

A decade or two ago, escorts were hired only by an elite few. Today however, the number of people who are able to afford elite escort services has gone up considerably. Celebrities, businessmen, politicians and people from many other industries look out for escorts. They need escorts who are professionally recruited for the job.

The injection of professionalism is what has made the escorts even more desirable. They are great company for people who are out on business tours to big cities, and are in need of companionship during their stays. All this suggests that there is definitely good money to be made for a smart escort agency in many cities in the United Kingdom.

Who should start such a service?

Ostensibly, it would seem that you need to have been in the escort industry for years in order to start an escort service that holds up well for you. Today however, if you are educated enough, you can look for advice from various resources including online places such as this website. There also are resource guides on the web, who will give you complete step by step guidance on various aspects of running an escort service.

However, it does help if you have been an escort yourself for a few years, or if you have worked for another escort agency in some other capacity. You then have the hang of the intricacies involved with the services. There are many cases where women have worked as escorts for an agency for a few years, and then they have gone on to start their own businesses for better incomes.

In many of these cases, they are actually very successful because they know enough people to set up the businesses. In conclusion however, you can say that anyone can start an escort business if one has enough conviction to make money.

Where to start (small city or big)

You will find that most of the escort services in the UK are concentrated around the major cities where there is a lot of business. You can start your own escort business in such cities, because it has many advantages such as:

  • Potential for more clients. Big cities have big businesses and therefore big businessmen. These are the kinds of people that are likely to hire escorts.
  • You have greater acceptance. In smaller cities, there are people who still scoff at the escort industry because they consider it illegal. In larger cities however, escort services are recognized as legitimate businesses.
  • You get better exposure. Although smaller cities also have potential clients for an escort service, there is not enough exposure for your business to be lucrative. A big city business removes many of your hurdles.

However, starting your own service also has one potential downside. You have a lot of competition to contend with. Remember that when you are starting your agency, there are many services that have been in the business for a long time. You want your business to have a more unique angle to it.

That big cities are more lucrative does not mean that you cannot make money as an escort agency in smaller cities. There are a few advantages of setting up shop in one of the emerging cities in the UK.

  • The situation in smaller urban centers is not all that dire. Some of the smaller cities are emerging business centers and entertainment hubs. There is growing acceptance of escort services.
  • There will be fewer escort services competing with you. You can set up shop and gain recognition more quickly, provided you do the right things. You can stand out more easily here.

Ultimately, you decision regarding where you should start your escort agency also depends a lot on where you have lived in the past few years, and where you have grown up. You will be more comfortable opening up your business in familiar places.

It is legal

One thing that you need to nail down your own mind about this business is, running an escort agency is completely legal. If you run with the popular belief, escort services are just a more dignified name for prostitution. This is a completely outdated view now. If you are considering starting your own business, then you probably are aware of this fact.

However, you need to be absolutely clear about the legality of your business in all your dealings. Be clear about it in your advertising. Clarify it when you are dealing with potential clients. Let it be known to the escorts who work for your agency. Only then will you be able to actually convince everybody about it, and gain potential clients.

The laws relating to escort services in the UK are all related to the sexual angle of it. There are many escort services that are forced prostitution rackets in reality. They work by forcing women into the business. It is such cases that the law will want to protect against, such acts and all escort laws that you will come across are mostly related to this.

In fact, you should register your business with the local authorities. When you fill in your applications, mention your business explicitly being an escort service and not under another categories. It makes a good impression on the legal authorities and lets them know that you are not about to do anything unethical.

Get some advice

If you want your escort service to be really lucrative, it is important that you get preliminary advice from people who have been working here for a while. Look, when you are starting your escort agency, you are either an experienced escort or an experienced business person.

For those who were working for an escort agency, starting an escort service might seem easy. However, now you are running your own business, there are a lot of responsibilities. You will need to know what will actually make your business work.

There are many people who have been watching this industry from the sidelines, and they know a good deal about how to make it a legal money making business. If you are in this category, you still should consult escorts about hiring employees, and about how to choose your escorts.

Do you want to start a niche?

As we’ve mentioned before, if you want a successful escort agency, you want something that differentiates you from your competitors. This is especially true of the bigger UK cities. Most escort agencies that you find are generic and cater to all kinds of clients. Their ads and flyers might say a lot of things. They generally have the same set of features, when it boils down to real business.

For example, there is a lot of demand for male escorts. There are few gay services around today, and you could be one of those escort services. Although you might believe that there are few clients for such a service, you will be surprised by the numbers once you step into it. Your business does not need to exclusively supply male escorts to clients, but it would be one of your selling points.

Another example of a niche that could serve you well is providing escorts for business tours. There are many escort agencies that provide such services for sure. However, you will hardly find any that cater exclusively to such clients. The first thought you might have when you consider this is that you are obviously reducing your client base by a huge amount.

However consider that there is a market for specialized services. If you can provide really high quality escorts, clients will be more trust your agency more. It heartens them to know that you are serving exclusively their needs. You may then get better rates, because clients are happy to pay a premium price for specialized services.

The above two are just two examples, but you get the point. See if you can identify a niche area that becomes your primary focus when you are setting up your escort agency.

Marketing
