Switter Do's & Dont's

Welcome to Switter

Explicit avatars, vague profiles, guys refusing to screen, timewasters, etc. Let me try my best to make sure your Switter experience goes smoothly. Mistakes are common since we are only human.

DON'T

Vague profile

 Location? Client? Picture? Details help!

Location? Client? Picture? Details help!

Many clients complain of not being able to find providers, but if they added more details to their profile such as their location, then providers would more than likely connect with them! 

DO

Add more details

Clients try to add more details to your profile. It will be highly beneficial!

 Adding your location and even boards & websites that you use help.

 Extra points when you show interest in current events related to our industry.

A picture, your location, review boards, and other hobby related sites that you're on can let providers feel more familiar with you. 

DON'T

'No AA' in your ads

Providers, Switter just implemented a new beautiful set of rules for listings since it was getting out of hand, and guess what? "No AA" constitutes as racism which is now against the listing rules. 

 Highlighted the rule for proof that discrimination on listings are against the rules.

DO

keep your racism private

Feel free to be racist during your screening though!

DON'T

EXPLICIT/NUDE PROFILE PICTURES

Please don't have any explicit or nude picture as your profile picture on Switter. The Switter Team is small, and they can't moderate everyone; furthermore, I wouldn't be surprised if other instances are complaining about vulgarity spewing from the Switter instance time-to-time.

So, CHANGE YOUR AVATAR PICTURES!

use switter as your only verification

Switter isn't a verification system. It's a social network. 

Clients, please stop thinking just because you have Switter, that you are now instantly granted access to not be screened.

DO

LEARN A PROVIDER'S SCREENING PROTOCOL

So, read your provider's screening protocol and follow their rules to meet them.

Clients Whining about IDs:

Be aware that most of the websites we advertise on such as Eros require OUR IDENTIFICATION SUCH AS A DRIVER'S LICENSE OR PASSPORT. 

I don't check IDs. I just wanted to get that point across, so clients know what's up.

DON'T

book through direct messaging

Clients, providers have websites for a reason. 

DO

SEE HOW YOUR PROVIDER WANTS TO BE CONTACTED

Lazy Client's Guide to Finding Provider's Contact/Booking Info:

  1. Go to your provider's website.
  2. Look at the navigation.
  3. Look for words such as Contact, Booking, Screening and other synonymous lingo
  4. Click on the link
  5. Fill out a contact/booking/screening form if there is one presented
  6. If no form, look for their email or number
  7. If you find their number, see if they either want to be TEXT or CALLS
  8. Contact your provider through their preferred form of contact

Clients, be aware that many providers, such as myself, only text after screening. 

Please respect our choices. When clients email me, it shows that they read and saw it as my preferred method of contact. 

DON'T

Silently Follow

Remember the randoms who had a handle on a board with no reviews or posts? It's like a silent follower on Switter who just lurks, looks with no intention of engaging or booking. Occasionally hovering your mouse to click the star on a provider's toot is thoughtful.

DO

favorite & boost toots

Providers love when their followers boost & favorite their toots. 

Be aware that times are a bit rough for some providers since the passing of this new law. It's even better when followers gift their providers from items on their wishlist or donating to their PayPal, Cash, etc. links.
