Welcome back. In today’s post, I will talk about valuable skills and lessons I have learned over the years while selling dirty panties. I have sold my used panties and digital fetish items for over seven years. My used panties business has been full of ups, downs, and invaluable experiences. Here are some things I wish I had known before I got started.
During the early years of my career, I did not let my personality shine through enough. I was all about sales. My profile descriptions were bare, I was absent on social media, and I was standoffish with customers whose first message didn’t indicate they wanted to buy. I missed numerous potential sales because I was unwilling to see the bigger picture.
My evolution into becoming a more personable seller happened gradually. I can not pinpoint a particular day when I woke up and said, “I want to be more personable with my customers.” As I have aged and matured, I have started to take my business more seriously. I started investing more time, finances, and effort.
Putting elements in my profile that would help buyers know more than “I sell panties.” I considered what made me stand out from other sellers and used it to my advantage. I included a list of my hobbies (hiking, traveling, 420, and web design). I wrote relevant details I didn’t mention before, like not shaving and being “all natural.”
My orders increased when I beefed up my profile. Fans were interested in ordering items like hiked-in panties and videos of me smoking. Guys were starting to purchase more than just panties from me, and I was enjoying fulfilling their orders. I was gaining more repeat customers with who I shared similar interests. Some of them are now my great friends.
Let potential buyers know that you are more than just a panty seller. They want more than panties. They want an experience.
Set consistent boundaries
It is essential all entrepreneurs set firm boundaries and stick to them. As a newer seller, I had “boundaries,” but I often deviated from them to secure a sale. I would do things like agree to offer a fetish I did not feel comfortable with for an extra fee or lower my price for a buyer who felt compelled to haggle.
The payment notification of securing a sale would always excite me, but the happy feelings often did not last long when I compromised my boundaries. Typically the clients asking me to do stuff I clearly said I did not offer would:
1)Not become a repeat customer
2)Be rude/unappreciative of my services
3)Make me feel unfulfilled at the end of the service
I stopped compromising my values cold turkey after doing some soul searching. I asked myself what type of client I wanted to attract. My ideal client was someone with similar interests. They were kind, loyal, and generous. Kind customers don’t ask you to compromise your values and engage in price haggling. Full stop.
I started investing in my business more as I gained confidence. I was initially reluctant to spend money on my business or try to learn new skills to improve my craft because I was scared it would not pay off. My hesitation to make these investments cost me hundreds of sales.
I wish I had taken the time to read more books, listen to more podcasts, and connect with more sellers when I was a younger model. Education, marketing research, and investing in networking and making friends are all things that I just recently started doing in the last five years of my career. I was an introverted, unconfident model for the first five years of my career!
Entrepreneurs must constantly be researching their craft to be successful. Finetuning your business should be a part of your regular business routine. Never stay stagnant. Models deserve to have other friends who are models. If you needed a sign to invest in yourself, this is it.
