Somehow I got posting about this on a regional thread (stupidly, not even one I frequent), but here's the gist of what I said:

If UKE going to be a success, and not just full of the same guys who have accepted the invitation to join from UKP, we need to encourage far more of the service providers to join. A few brave ones, many of whom are already members of UKP, have started the ball rolling, but it only takes each guy to introduce one girl to the forum and the site will quickly take on its own identity and the discussions will be different from the usual postings on the men's club that is UKP.

So let's start the ball rolling. Those of you who have regs, get in touch with them and let them know about it.

With this in mind I sent off three messages to regs this morning and got a reply from one saying that she hadn't heard of it, but it looked interesting and within an hour she's signed up and posted a message.

So come on...

I informed my regular before launching this site and invited her again after the official launch. She is very much interested about this new site. Hopefully she'll sign up here soon. Btw did you mean Lian joined here? ;)

Good idea, I also pledge to spread the word with any escorts I see in 2016.:hi:

The only flaw is, my entire HL is made up of escorts already on UKE.:unknown:
I think most of the ladies I've seen and would see again, as well as a lot of the ladies I'd like to see, are already here.

However the Classified ads section for touring ladies has opened up a lot of opportunities that I would never have considered before and it's good to get an idea of what the ladies are like before you meet.

This is a fine idea. But let's remain realistic. There are many more punters than escorts. Not sure anyone know the ratio - but it might be 20 to 1 or some number like that - (we don't need to debate it on this thread, but it is not 2 to 1 nor 2000 to 1 so lets call it 20 to 1.)

So I think this site is doing well with escorts. By all means invite more, but don't think it is not a success based on some unrealistic goal.

To be fair, I don't understand why there are not more adverts. I guess escorts don't think there are enough punters to bother. So perhaps not enough punters is the real problem. (not that I think there is a problem - just a figure of speech)

I would say like any new forum, not enough members or more importantly active members is the "Problem" This will naturally improve overtime, I guess it is then down to the atmosphere that members create that will set the future tone.

I mentioned the site to one lady in the very early days who then subsequently joined and has been a great contributor here.

At least three girls i know made their own way here I guess off the back of recommendations from others.

I've also mentioned it to a few other regs - again mostly London based - and like @hendrix' regs mine are always pretty well booked up and clearly don't feel they need any extra marketing. :unknown:

As @Jack Sparrow says - apart from mentioning the site all we can do is ensure it's an inviting / welcoming place for escorts.

I guess the question to our lovely lady members would be - what else can we do to make the site more welcoming?

I mentioned it to one and she was worried about the connection to UKP. I know I'm not serious on here very often but maybe that is something that needs clarifying.
I contacted an old reg in Manchester from my last bout of punting, she said "fuck you, you selfish bastard, which rock have you been hiding under"
Maybe I'll mention UKE next time.

The adverts might be most useful as a tool to gauge interest in a potential tour and then to announce and get bookings for that tour. Some ladies seem to have done very well for bookings doing that in the last week or so and I'm certainly checking the ads to make sure I don't miss out on someone I'd like to see.

I guess it would be a factor to some I agree, however I think admins "This site" sticky does a pretty good job setting out the differences.:unknown:

I mentioned it to my old regulars, all London based, and tbh, they're not really interested at the moment, can't see the benefit for themselves as they're already busy and not really into the flirting style of the forum.
Yep, my take on it to. Only one I've mentioned it to has joined. Some girls are interested in business, not flirting.

Flirting can lead to business here! However I can see why ladies wouldn't want to bother if they already have all they clients they want. It won't suit everyone.

I think the flirting gets a bit much sometimes but then I'm bit hypocritical because I get involved in that too at times :)

It seems that the flirting itself is less of an issue to many people , when it spills over to other more serious threads, then it can become a bit irritating . I to am guilty of that as well sometimes.

Have to admit I haven't looked at the touring section yet. Am I right in thinking that most WG's on here are English? For some reason most of my meets (London) are with EE or other foreign girls. Apart from their language problems, most of them don't seem interested in socializing on this kind of site and see London as a survival issue rather than a playground. Its a real pity; to change that attitude would take real time and commitment on both sides.

Quite the united nations we have here including Romanian , Polish, Czech & Albanian just from the top of my head.

Agreed. I'm having fun here and I try not to be a needy or intrusive client in general. Can be difficult not to get carried away when the banter gets spirited, must try to exert some self control.
I have certainly modified how I use PM since I first joined, after realizing how many messages some escorts regularly get on here and I never expect a response unless it is directly booking related which I put in the PM title now.

Ha, can't believe where this thread has been resurrected and given the kiss of life, to tell you the truth I stumbled back across it and was rather hoping that it would go down in the annals of UKE history as the least popular thread ever as it had just one reply. @RedPanda must have searched deep in the archives to have found it and breathed life into it again.

I noticed that of the three girls I contacted initially at the end of October two did sign up and become active members. I just think it is a shame that some of the early established female members have drifted away, but I guess that the style of the forum can't suit everyone, although it's a shame that I felt the need to start another thread in under two months Where have the girls gone?

I think a lot depends on how much business they are going to get, versus the amount of time they spend reading and posting. My guess is that it's not very time efficient in that regard and most of the girls on here regularly are here for other reasons such as information gathering, legislation issues etc that concern them. It's a pity because more providers can only be a good thing in the format that this exists.

I'm here for much the same reasons, i.e. learning how to do it better, sharing information and promoting a better environment. Looking for bookings is not the prime motive, although I feel strongly attracted to some of the girls (and what they post forms some of that), they are all out of my area at present.

You know its weird I didnt even notice the date. I am using my phone cos I am travelling and the sort function is different to my tablet and laptop. I read that the thread was initially on a regional forum and figured you had simply transferred it here.

Plus I saw it didnt have any responses and figured it deserved one.

But it was a good idea and TBH I think it is more relevant now than in October. We now have a better idea of who is joining.

So all good :thumbsup:

I try to treat PM as I would AW. Only use for a booking or a genuine private concern. I use the wgs profile page to flirt and threads to return comments.

Oh and call me a suck but I love the flirting side of this forum although not on serious threads.

OK

As far as very active escort members go, I would say the British born ones are probably a slight minority but then it matters not to me who posts, more what they are posting.
Having English as a first language and being able to banter, flirt and even accept bookings via UKE must surely be a factor here ?
I think some of the EE girls who do not have a very good command of written English would struggle to follow some of the puns and nuances on here.
I have told five SP's to let them know that this site is operating, but sadly only one of them has joined :(

Ok, I'm looking at this from my own stand point and every coin has two sides, but...

I love the fact the girls can flirt and post media. The number of profiles I've looked at amazes me, pretty much, if you've posted a hot picture, I've checked your profile on AW. As I see it, is excellent advertising.

Ok, it's a pain in the arse that everyone is so far away from me and my bank account has less numbers than my IQ, but I have met one girl from here and I plan to meet more.

Aye, it's a fine line, but if a girl uses this site well, her business will increase. I'll be holding a seminar at 4pm on Advertising With Your Boobs...all the girls are welcome, there will be tea, coffee, biscuits and a hand out of free condoms (some of which might be attached to me).

But some of them have mastered it and are wayyyyyy ahead of me. ;)

I think keeping the girls is going to be the biggest challenge of this site. It can be very addictive and take up a lot of time.

But we the guys on here need to make sure of a couple of things I think.

1. Don't PM girls just inane chat, they don't have the time. Any PM must be relevant. So if you want them to tour, don't PM just post a request on their profile.

2. Don't post anything that is degrading to WG's in general like one dick in the NE did. That is very disrespectfull and has resulted in at least one girl thinking of leaving.

Agree with @Punter Griffin that this site has deffo increased business and I forgot to mention the fun of flirting on the media.

That raises another comment. My view is we as the guys are being treated to some great photos that would normally only be available in PG on AW. I for one take great pride in that. :P
How do you know and who for? OK some bookings for some SPs may have resulted, but she may have had just as much business if she hadn't been on here.

It's always interesting to see forum members assuming that their booking, is bringing extra business. Sometimes an SP may not have extra capacity, or the booking is instead of someone else's, so there isn't a necessarily a net gain.

That's my take on it to. I can imagine some of the girls get a lot of flirty PM's on here that they could well do without.
Then just ignore me, I mean them, ignore them.

But seriously, it must be a fine line for the girls, seeing if it is just flirting or a genuine work opportunity. Honestly, I've stopped pm flirting, coz it's a bit pointless for me, coz I'll never get to see them. If the girl had the opportunity to flirt with someone she might gain as a client, good for her.

I guess its nice to think that profile flirting is more akin to facebook. Especially as the format is so similar. But in reality it is a business, so a reality check is probably in order.

I can't speak for anyone else, but my AW searches tend to be reasonably local, but I find it increasingly difficult to spot the genuine SPs. I know that our online persona can mask a quite different reality, but to see some really interesting escorts posting here showing intelligence and wit, and what is more important for me, apparent sincerity, is a far better filter than anything on AW.

I have visited three UKE escorts who I hadn't met before I joined, entirely due to UKE. @Ellie Rose , @Mandy and @british-bombshell held no secrets when I saw them for the first time, and indeed all three exceeded my expectations, which were already quite high. All three were well beyond my usual area involving either 50+ miles in the car or over an hour on public transport.

Other UKE escorts that I met pre-UKE would also hold no surprises for anyone wishing to see them and there are at least two more who I would make a real effort to meet based almost entirely on their UKE postings.

A quick search of AW in NW London is extremely disheartening. There seem to be very few genuine independent SPs, so perhaps it is no surprise that there are fewer female UKE members from my area.

So although I originally posted back in October that we needed more escorts to join to make the site a success, I think it is even more obvious now that quality is paramount over quantity, and if a choice has to be made been the two, thank goodness we at least seem to have the quality of SP on here.
