And by the way, January has been very quiet. Thats why Im not happy about the holidays anymore. This is the 3rd January in a row where things have just slumped. Everyday should be a holiday, not just a month when people go spend crazy and then afterwards time just stands still...

Perhaps we should be organising our own personal January sales campaigns. I'm not suggesting we slash our prices (god forbid!) but maybe offer an incentive to spend money like loyalty points (I could print up my own little cards, buy ten blow jobs, get a complimentary massage) or offer team up to with other suppliers to have your car valeted whilst you're getting your end away.

Gosh I'm bored... ooh those CDs aren't in order, must sort that out.....

PS, please don't take any of the above seriously, I'm pulling the collective plonker... except perhaps about the CDs!

Well Lilly you are right to an extent, offering specials is good sometimes. I have a massage special going on which is 100 dollars less than what I usually charge. I also advertised 30 minute specials. Point is, the men are broke because of the silly holiday shopping rituals and nothing's really selling so well. What do I have to do, offer $20 specials  ::)

Just to say that I do a spreadsheet and have done for a long time!!!!  And it is not out of boredom at all! 

I take this work seriously and treat it in a professional manner.  As such I have goals and set myself targets which I try to reach.  By doing spreadsheets it also jogs my memory on clients and likewise a very good way of looking back and seeing which months were busier than others.

It also helps with keeping accurate accounts and providing information required by my accountant should the need arise.

Yup. Went from literally 7 calls a day last month (albiet with a generous helping of the "woss-ya-name-again I forgot and can i 'av a discount" variety) to 1 or 2 calls a day if I'm lucky at the moment. Definitely getting some loyalty cards made up with something along the lines of....... hmmm, maybe a flash of nipple as they leave, as an incentive to save up for. I mean, seriously, that's a pretty generous offer if you ask me.

I have had more calls lately but that could be because I got my first punternet review not long ago, and another positive reveiw on AW, whereas before I only had one, so im guessing thats why. I was expecting January to be very quiet because its the time of year when most people have spent too much over xmas! x x

I find that new reviews help, I was just cheeky and asked a couple of clients right out if the were going to do a review...and it worked, one client even said he came to see me because it said "New Review" next to my name on the agency website. I expected January to be slow too, so I've saved for that. I'm also going to invest in some new photos in a few weeks so that when the january money troubles ease a bit I'll be there in my new knickers :D

It'll get better. It always does. xx

January's fine for me at the moment. It's February I usually dread. That's when the Christmas bills arrive.

PS, please don't take any of the above seriously, I'm pulling the collective plonker... except perhaps about the CDs!

Oi, watch what you are saying Lil, my CDs are in order, alphabetical by genre and then alphabetical by artist keeping groups, male and female singers in subcategories.

Spent most of December doing that and am busy catalogueing them now. Each on their own flipcard.

LOL! Thank you all, I feel quite normal now with my rolled towels colour coded in the airing cupboard, bookcase arranged according to size and fridge coded according to best before dates. Going to start on my spreadsheet tomorrow and will present my data in a few months.
Who would have thought I had so many kindred spirits closeted away?

I once lived in a shared house and after a few months decided i was going to clear the fridge out so i asked everyone just to initial everything so i didnt chuck out things still being used (a couple of people had moved out but their mayo etc hadnt).  So one of the girls had ocd and typed name tags with her full name (just incase i needed her 2middle names for clarity??) and then she couldnt stop.  She was name tagging everything for the next 6months of living there.  I told her one evening that she could stop now as i wasnt cleaning the fridge every week and we wouldnt steal her food and she admitted that she kept trying to stop but it annoyed her knowing there was unlabled stuff in the fridge and she couldnt help herself..... I created a monster (and i feel i may have done again) I will give her a call and see if she wants to join your group  ;D
