A Note on Copycats

Posted on Feb 22, 2014

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery… but here at Select, we’re not so sure. Every so often you might notice us having a rant about other escort agencies who have stolen our images or our website copy. It happens to us all the time, and we never find it particularly flattering…more like annoying!

We put a lot of work into the content on our website to make sure it is top quality and 100 per cent accurate, so you can imagine how frustrating it is when it gets nicked by one of our competitors.female in panties with a whip

Often it’s caused by a bad web developer who has been told ‘I want something like sydneyselectescorts.com.au’ – and goes on to steal our web copy, word for word. Sometimes the theft is totally random. But the majority of the time, if we do a bit of investigating, we discover that the thief is someone we know… usually Sydney escorts who have worked for us for a short time and it hasn’t worked out, or girls who were refused or failed an interview.

Another old saying applies here – ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’. We understand, rejection is tough and it hurts. But if you want to work in the sex industry, you need to have a very thick skin. You are going to cop a lot of criticism on everything from the way you look to your fashion sense, your ability in the bedroom, and your age. Clients will say nasty things about you – even the best Sydney escorts aren’t universally popular! You need to be able to cope with this.

Most of the new fly-by-night agencies that nick our content usually fizzle out very quickly. A lot of people get into this business thinking that it’s a great way to make some fast, easy money. Nothing could be further than the truth.

It took us years of hard graft to build Select into the top Sydney escort agency that it is today. It didn’t happen overnight and it certainly wasn’t easy. You have to be intelligent and incredibly hard working. Expect to spend thousands of dollars on your initial setup, and thousands every month after that. You will need an excellent accountant, web developer, SEO, and a solicitor. Most of all, you need to look after the people who work for you.

We like to maintain a good professional relationship with other Sydney escort agencies, so here’s a word of advice to any newcomers:

1. Take some pride in your work. Stealing our content not only causes issues for us, it will cause massive problems for you when you get caught out.

2. Don’t underestimate your punters. If you use stock photos, you are lying to them about what you can deliver. Word will spread fast and you’ll soon be out of business.
