When you’re just starting out — whether it’s a new hobby or a new profession like stripping — there are often mistakes that many people make. The mistakes can be embarrassing and make your life harder, but they’re just a part of the learning curve. Right?
We don’t think so! That’s why we’re gathering some of the most common mistakes new strippers make, so you can avoid the heartache and hassle.
1) They don’t market themselves
It can be difficult to walk the tightrope between your privacy and social media — but if you’re working a big club, especially in a metropolitan area, self-marketing is important!
While you probably don’t want to spend money on expensive marketing tools, you won’t have to! If you post consistently on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, you can create your own following. Pictures of your outfits, naughty sneak peeks, pictures of you working out, and so on can help you reach marketing success.
Just be sure NOT to snap a cute selfie with a client. If his wife or girlfriend is watching social, she might find it.
2) They don’t commit
To make serious money, you have to treat stripping as seriously as you would any other dream job. No matter how good of an actor you are, if you don’t want to be there, it shows in your earnings and performance.
That’s why it’s important to educate yourself on how to make the most of your exotic dancing. Learn every aspect of exotic dancing and stripping, from the moves to flirting to what outfits to wear.
3) They spend too much
Some girls spend way too much money on costumes, make-up, and hair products. While it’s important to look desirable and professional, chances are you don’t need more than 3-5 outfits, a pair of clear heels, and a Sephora or MAC regimen that makes you look great.
If you continually dump your earnings into flashy costumes and new makeup — just for the purpose of stripping — you might be missing the point.
4) They don’t stay safe
Trust your instinct and don’t let yourself get caught in seedy situations. It’s helpful to make allies with the other strippers in your club (if you can). Use a buddy system and don’t do anything you don’t want to. You’re in control here.
