This seemed like a god idea at the time :D - I am certain in six months time when I read back over this, I may not agree with myself.
So, the first question that I have decided to answer is one that I've seen in the chat room often in many guises;
"Where all the pigs at?"
"Where be my pigs?"
There are a number of contributing factors that will help me answer this question, the most obvious ones are:
- What - What you put out there
- why - Why you are here
- Where - Where you are targeting
- When - When you sign up
- Which - Which approaches are you using
What are you putting out there?
It stands to reason that many subs (not all but a lot) come here under the impression that they pay money and in return they get to see some hoo hoo coochite tata nana goodness. (Boobs and snatch)
Have you looked over your profile? Are you giving away too much?
As the great Goddess_Bella_Donna says - "Why pay for the cow when they can get the milk for free?"
Task one: Tease, suggest, but don't show off your nipples.
Why are you here?
Money? Power? Your Fetish? Your info panel on the profile says so much. Fill it in. Use it to entice. Don't just write "You will be my pig and give me your money." Everyone has that. Use your imagination and get creative :D
Task Two: Look at the wording of your profile. Is it stock standard once size fits most? Can you make it more creative? Get the slaves slobbering? Make them want you with your words.
Task Two point One: Go back over your profile and make sure that the Grammar and English are correct. You are showing how amazing you are. Not that "U can tlk lyk ery1 else".
Where are you Targeting?
Think about what you are comfortable doing, what you enjoy doing and then focus on that. Are you really happy when guys worship your feet? focus on those! Goddess Bella Daisy makes guys worship, focus upon and pay her cleavage. She loves her boobs and uses them to her advantage.
No one Domme can do it all!! If you hate talking to people on the phone then why would you open a Nite Flirt chatline?
Task Three: What are your best features? What do you want worshiped? What makes you Unique? - Add that too your profile info.
When you sign up
There are fluxes in sign ups for Dommes on any site. Tax time, holidays and other celebrations such as birthdays are big ones. At the same time, these seem to be the slowest times for finding new piggies.
You need to remember that FinDom can be a slow cultivated investment and not a fast pay off. If you are here as a "holiday Domme" then you need to understand that you might not get lucky because you are not as well known and established as the Dommes who have been here longer.
Task Four: Write a long term plan. Organise how you are going to talk with your piggies. What information on them you will keep. What information you will need. Do you want long term milkings or do you want short term draining? Have you set up different methods of payment? Organise baby!
Which approaches are you using?
I let the pigs come to me. Other Dommes chat with pigs in the chat room. Make personal websites and advertise there. Make videos. Write blogs. Poke pigs that look at their profiles. Abuse people? Scream WHERE ARE THE PIGS? in the chat room and on your profile.
I'll be honest with you. As stupid as we call the pigs, most of them aren't. Those who are looking for a good FinDom make notes and remember what we are like. They approach when they want to tribute, after they have learned about us so that they know how to please us best.
If you crawl to them, demand that they pay for looking at your profile and constantly whine that you can't find a piggy to pamper you for ever then maybe your approach isn't working. The pigs talk about the Dommes and anonomously rate us as well. I'm certainly not saying make friends and rainbows and happy with the subs, that is not what they are for. They are here to serve us. So why chase?
Remember the hit rate as well. There are a piggies joining all the time with different fetishes and wants and needs and tastes. Most companies go for a one in ten hit with customers. Look at the number of verified Dommes Vrs the number of Verified piggies.
Do the Math.
Task Five: Look into some sales techniques. Be more sociable. Change your focus from "MUST FIND PIGS DESPERATELY" to "Here to have a good time" it will stress you out less and your real personality will be able to shine through for all to see.
