Q & A – Working with Agency Atlantic

Why do girls work with an agency?

Every lady is different and has her own reasons for being with an agency. A lady makes a choice to join us and can leave whenever she wishes; ladies stay because it suits their personal needs.

Being an independent can be very costly and life consuming. Some ladies prefer their personal life not to be interrupted by their escort life. We handle all the arrangements & they accept appointments for the times that suit them.

Not everyone wishes to promote themselves on social media, do admin or pay out all the costs associated with running as an independent on their own behalf such as advertising.

Why would a lady choose Agency Atlantic over another agency?

We like to think we are a bit different.  Agency Atlantic was created by a sexworker for sexworkers and our admin staff are all former sexworkers so we know what an escort’s job is and all the stresses it involves

Our aim is not to enforce rules but to work together as a team with a common goal – To be happy and financially secure.

We kinda have some rules I guess ‘be respectful to others’, ‘do your best’, ‘ask questions if you are unsure of something’, ‘take time off if you aren’t feeling it’, ‘talk openly if you have problems – a problem shared is a problem halved’, ‘please fill out your weekly schedule by Monday morning’ all the cliches lol

Atlantic is a known reputable brand due to the great ladies we have represented over the years and also the reliability, service and tenacity of our admin team.  

Each lady has her own individual brand within the Atlantic brand. Ladies approve their photos and all web content before it is posted online.

We work with ladies respectfully and would never push a lady into doing things she doesn’t wish to do and all meetings/times are approved by the escort prior to being confirmed with a gent.

We offering mentoring and a supportive work environment.  Many former Atlantic ladies have gone on to become very successful independent escorts.

Why do girls have to pay money to the agency?  They do all the work?

The lady does the time with the client, yes – but a lot of work and expense occurs before we book that 1hr incall!

Our phone lines are open a minimum 86 hrs a week and we provide an array of services to the ladies and then there are running costs…

An Escort Agency is not a charity.

An escort agency is a business and like any business has running costs – Staffing, advertising, website, photos, taxes and accounting fees to mention a few.

If the lady wasn’t paying our fee then she would be paying those costs herself. An advertisement on 1 website in Australia may cost upwards of $200/month, and many ladies advertise on more than 1 site. A photo shoot is in excess of $1000 (photos, location, outfits – it all adds up).

I am a escort & considering joining Agency Atlantic; what should I expect to be included in the agency’s fee?

That’s not a simple answer; every lady gets something different out of working with Atlantic.

It all depends on what your individual needs are. The basics are that we pay for your photos and advertising and handle all your booking arrangements. We are on hand a minimum of 12 hrs a day and offer support to you with whatever you need.

All the atlantic admin staff have personal escort experience as well as management experience.  The agency manager Sarah has over 17 years industry experience both in Australia and Internationally and has a lot of experience as a mentor. If you would like assistance with branding, persona or PR in general, Sarah and her team have experience that sets Atlantic apart from other agencies and that is part of the reason we have been around for so many years.

I am a part-time escort with a career & have been working 2 shifts a week at a Brothel. I want to start to Escort but I can’t decide if I should join Atlantic or be a private or maybe a private with a PA?

At the moment in Sydney many of the ladies that contact us to interview are private escorts saying they are not earning enough to achieve that common goal – to be happy and financially secure. So from this we assume that being a private can be a difficult road especially when you start escorting.

Working as an escort is quite different to working in a brothel, so learning from a mentor with 17 years experience (Sarah) can be invaluable and of course a number of the ladies working with Atlantic have also made the change.

It very time consuming and also costly to start an escort brand and it may take a while before you see any significant earnings. It can be a costly and difficult investment, particularly if you are just starting out as an independent escort.

Being a private with a PA is similar to being with an agency but you don’t have the agency reputation behind you. It can often take a lot longer to get established as a private than it does working with a reputable agency. We also suggest you make enquiries about the fees charged as sometimes, there can also be hidden costs that add up quickly.

We find many clients actually prefer the safety of booking with the agency and are quite loyal to us.

Some ladies do say they enjoy working as part of a team in what can often be a lonely and isolating industry – but working with an agency does not need to be a lifetime career commitment. Again, ladies have their own personal reasons for working with an agency and may continue to pursue their goals as an independent if they so choose.

A former Atlantic escort is now 100% private with a PA. She spent 2 and a half years working very closely with Sarah on both her brand at Atlantic and establishing her private brand.
