FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

01

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE MY WEBSITE?

Please give me around 10-14 days for the initial website completion, and we would go from there with any alterations you require.

Once I initially send you the first draft, I do need a response from you within 60 days. Your website will be in trial mode and if you are non-responsive, eventually the trial mode will automatically lapse and the website will be lost.

I understand it may take you a few days or a couple of weeks to go through everything and write up any edits you'd like, or you may be busy or on hiatus- please keep good communication and I can extend the trial to keep it from expiring, if needed.

02

WHICH PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?

I accept payment via CashApp, Apple Pay, Venmo or Bitcoin, for your discretion. If you are a companion outside of The USA, Bitcoin or PayPal are options. Please add 3% for Bitcoin, to cover the selling fee. I may need to add 3% for PayPal, depending on if you have an account.

I do not offer refunds unless I am unable to create your website for whatever reason- this has not happened as of yet!
If you have changed your mind about needing a website but have already paid, you are welcome to gift the website to a provider friend.

03

WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT SCHEDULE?

I do require the full amount upfront. 
I do not break it down as deposits and final fees. I tried it at the very beginning, but being paid some of my fee upfront and then awaiting the rest of the balance after I had done 100% of the work was a very bad business idea. Companions unexpectedly going on hiatus or having other distractions meant that I would be waiting a very long time to be paid in full, if at all.

Going forward, this is something I will not change my mind about, please do not ask me to.

I have a 100% satisfaction rate, so if you have concerns of not being happy with the site after you have paid, please be aware that I do adjust it until you love the final outcome.
I would never jeopardize my business on something that is so minor and fixable. A lot my business comes from word of mouth and I want to keep that going!

04

WHY ARE YOUR PRICES SO LOW IN COMPARISON TO OTHER PROFESSIONAL WEBSITE DESIGNERS?

I use Squarespace, a template website, for your designs. Everything is always customized to suit your image, I do not simply choose any template available and fill in the blanks.
Hopefully from my previous work, you can see that beautiful websites are very much possible, and it’s also easy for you to maintain thereafter! I do not need to spend time coding and doing all the intricate parts of WordPress, meaning my turnaround time is faster = lower costs.

Please bear in mind that Squarespace can be somewhat limited in features if you are looking for something specific. Please use my portfolio as a general idea of my style.

05

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE A TEMPLATE WEBSITE OVER CUSTOM BUILT, LIKE WORDPRESS?

Simple- it’s easier for you to maintain. Wordpress and custom built sites, (while also great) can be a pain to navigate and understand, which usually results in you having to pay out each time to the individual or company who built your site, to make any small changes.
Do you really want to be contacting them and out-pocketing each time you update your consideration page, or want to upload your new photoshoot images?

06

WHAT MY WEBSITE WILL LOOK LIKE?

I usually design your website to flow with your photos, although please let me know if you have something in particular in mind.
Once completed, I always ask you what you would like altered. Don’t be shy, I want you to be happy with the end result!
From previous experience, I've learnt that it is best to take your time (at least 1-2 days) to go over your initial new website, and come back to me with a full list of edits you would like.

While I understand that you may want me to test out to see how different colors or a different font may look, please understand that multiple aesthetic redesigns over ongoing weeks do not count fall under this category of alterations, which is why I do ask for you to be upfront prior to me starting work if you are set on a specific design idea for your website.

It hasn't been an uncommon request for me to recreate websites from other well-known escort designers. While I definitely can use their work for inspiration, I cannot copy down to a T.
It's not fair of me to rip-off someone else's work, nor can I anyway when I am using Squarespace and they are using WordPress.
If you see a website you like and want for yourself that's made by another web designer but they are out of your budget, I would recommend saving up to hire them.

07

ENGLISH IS NOT MY FIRST LANGUAGE, CAN YOU HELP ME?

Absolutely! No matter which package you are choosing, I will read through your content and correct any typo's or rewrite the sentence to make sense. Your website reflects my work too- although honestly, I think it's pure laziness when a website designer doesn't pay attention to the small details. This is something that takes just a few minutes of their life to read through and fix.

Please be mindful that this is just smoothing out the information given, if needed. I am unable to write or refresh full bio's.
If you need a full service to do this for you, please research online. I do not have anyone I can currently refer you to.

08

CAN YOU PROVIDE COPYWRITING?

Unfortunately, I am unable to provide copywriting at this time and do not have anyone I can refer you to. If you do find a professional who providers this service who you end up using and are happy with, feel free to let me know so I can recommend them!

Note: I am not responsible for researching what I'm given to upload for website biographies. You may see my website credited in the footer of their website. If someone I have made a website for has ripped off any wording from your site, please take it up directly with them. It's unfortunate and immoral, but I have no way of knowing if someone has stolen your writing.

09

DO YOU PROVIDE SEO SERVICES TO HELP ME GET TO GOOGLE PAGE 1?

You may have found me by typing into Google 'Escort Website Designer' or 'Sex Worker Web Developer', or something similar along those lines. It's possible for me personally, because in comparison to how many escort companions there are in the world, there are few escort website builders, and no specialist directories for us either.

If anyone tells you they can bump your website all the way to page 1 of 'Escorts in {insert city here}' they are lying. Or should I say, most likely lying, because unless you live in the middle of nowhere with no escort directories available such as Eros, Tryst, Scarlett Blue, it's almost impossible to to rank on page 1. This is because you are competing with huge websites that have thousands to millions of clicks in traffic per day. SEO companies can charge an extortionate amount of money per month, with no guarantee of how high up on the pages you will land in google searches.

Although I would love to take your money, my honest opinion is that you are better off investing in advertisement upgrades on escort directory websites instead.

10

DO I NEED TO PURCHASE A DOMAIN BEFORE WE START?

I would advise you to not purchase a domain prior. Once you are happy with your completed site and we are ready to launch, I would pass over the login to you, and provide instructions on how to choose your plan, followed by domain. Doing it this way is much easier, because the domain will then immediately attach and go live to the site. If you purchase the domain through another 3rd party, it can be a inconvenient for you and a waiting process to move it over to Squarespace.

If you are wanting to move over an existing domain from another platform, please let me know and I will send you instructions on how to move it over.

11

ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN FEES?

I myself do not require any extra fees, unless you would like additional pages or something not offered that you are looking for and I'm able to do.

Squarespace hosting requires fees from $16 per month, or cheaper overall yearly, depending which plan is chosen. The domain will cost $20 yearly, or free when you choose to pay for a years plan with Squarespace.

The hosting is built in, so it's not possible to build a website on Squarespace then use another host.

12

DO YOU PROVIDE INVOICES OR RECEIPTS?

No, for obvious reasons. No receipts, no invoices, no 1099s.
I highly encourage you declare you income for taxes, and not doing is a felony. I declare all of my income and expenses through one of my "civvie" businesses, without needing to involve any SWers' information, and appreciate it going both ways.
If you need to deduct expenses, please make your own arrangements or consult with an industry-friendly tax consultant. From my experience, they've not needed proof of expenses, just a record of it, such as within a spreadsheet.

13

WILL MY WEBSITE BE OFFSHORE?

No, and I wouldn't particularly recommend it either. Feel free to email me asking the details as to why.
Unfortunately many escort website designers take advantage of companions by capitalizing on fear, rather than educating on the best path forward.

14

WILL SQUARESPACE REMOVE MY WEBSITE FOR BEING AN ESCORT?

Squarespace cannot remove your website without consent unless you are advertising something illegal.
Of course they have the power to remove websites, but this seems to have always been in the case that the provider was advertising particular services or abbreviations in The USA, or explicit photos. Common sense will eliminate this. Companions in The USA will be advertising time and companionship, nothing further.
I have also made websites for sex workers in Australia, listing sexual services (at their request), which is fully legal there, and have had no issues with Squarespace regarding this. I even contacted Squarespace directly from inside their accounts, so Squarespace were fully aware their sites existed.
The bottom line is, as long as we are staying within the legalities of the country you reside, there should be absolutely nothing to worry about.
It is in their terms and policy that no 'obscene' content is not allowed, so it's advised you do not add full frontal nudity or any pornography. Topless is fine.

Like anything in life, nothing is guaranteed; but I have made over 200 websites for companions all over the world now, primarily being The United States, Canada and Australia, and NONE of their websites have been taken down by Squarespace.

Please be mindful that although it has been over 3 years now and I've never had a website removed, companies in any industry can change policies at anytime. In the case of your website somehow being suspended in the future, I take no responsibility. I do not work for Squarespace, I am simply a web designer who utilizes their services in order to ensure you a beautiful seamless design and ease of maintenance thereafter.

15

AM I ON MY OWN ONCE MY SITE IS LAUNCHED? WHAT IF I NEED CHANGES LATER ON?

One of the big benefits of hiring me to do your site is that you have full control over it thereafter. It's very easy to make adjustments, and I'll provide instructions for you how to do so upon launching.

If you need help with edits later on, please contact me and I will be glad to help with minor revisions at no cost. If you have a list of edits that would take a while, I would give a small quote to compensate my time.

Please be mindful of the following:

1) While I don't charge a fee for minor revisions, this is a complimentary service that I may change at any time in the future and am not bound nor contracted to, should I decide to exit the industry.

2) Please be patient and respectful when asking me to make revisions. I do have my own life and cannot always reply immediately (although I try my best), nor do I see any other web designers offering free ongoing help.

3) If you are demanding and rude, I have the right to ignore you or refuse helping you with updates, once your website is completed.
You will have access to your website by that point and will be able to make your own changes.

4) While I can help with changes to your site, I cannot help with technical glitches or issues. I do not work for Squarespace, I'm simply an unassociated person who can assist with building a website for you, saving you the time and work yourself. Squarespace glitches can happen, although rare. You can check their updates here:

16

I’M READY! WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM ME?

Please fill in the submission form on my contact page.
To get the process started, I would send payment options. Once payment is received, I would send you a list of questions to fill out for your site, such as your escort companion name, base city, consideration etc.

Unfortunately, I no longer send out the questionnaire before receiving payment, only afterwards. This is because I've noticed various companions getting in touch to ask questions and confirming they would like to proceed, then instead, use my questionnaire as a guide to create their own website themselves, resulting in my time being disrespected.

Thank you for understanding and I look forward to working with you!
