Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does it work?
A. Phone Actresses call our phone Chat-Lines and record “greetings” talking about themselves or record a flirtatious message. Men (both members and non-members) who are also “Live” on the system and who have recorded a greeting hear these messages.
Phone Actresses will send messages to the male callers. If he is a member and has purchased a package of time on the Chat-Line, then he can leave a return message or request a Live Chat. If the male caller who you sent a message to is not a member, then they will not be able to send you a message and will be prompted to purchase a membership.
The idea is to be enticing so that the non-members hear your message and upgrade their account to a paid membership.
Q. What happens when a male hears my greeting?
A. If they are a non-member trying to respond to your message or greeting they receive message stating, “This service is for members only, press 5 to become a member now”.
Q. So the male callers on the system can only send me messages (or Live Chat requests) if they have a membership?
Q. What are Live Chat requests?
A. When male members get a message from you, they have the choice of either sending you a message back, or they can choose to send you a ‘Live Chat Request”. If you accept the request, then you will be conferenced together in a live call on the system.
Q. Will any Callers or Members be able to hear my phone number or get my number in any way?
A. No. Our systems bridge your calls together and your numbers are only known to Bridging Software. The only way they could get your number is if you give it to them and that is not allowed.
Q. Will any pictures or video of Phone Actresses be used?
A. No. Our Chat-Line is voice only. There are no pictures, videos or on-line profiles.
Q. What if a paid member asks me for my phone number? Can I give it to him?
A. No. First of all, you won't earn any money on our system that way, and secondly, any Phone Actress that calls any member will have their accoutns and money suspended and forfeited. Likewise, if any member calls your number, the same applies. Note: if any of our "male spotters" notifies us that a Phone Actress takes a number from the spotter and calls him, then that Phone Actress account will be suspended. Also, if a Phone Actess is constantly getting on the system for a few minutes and then getting off for several minutes and repeating this, then we will suspect that Phone Actress of "roping" and we will listen into her live calls to see if she is giving out her number or accepting a caller's number.
Q. What is "roping"?
A. Roping is working for a Chat-Line as a Phone Actress when your real motivation or purpose is to steal customers away from another Chat/Phone/Sex/Dating-Line, etc. Anyone caught "roping" on our systems will have their accounts and funds suspended. We also reserve the right to bring legal action against anyone caught roping.
Q. So are you saying that both the Phone Actresses and the men can send messages to each other or we can Chat Live?
A. Correct. The two options on the Chat-Line are message passing and Live one-on-one chat.
Q. How do I make money?
A. If you send a message or a Live Chat request to a male and he becomes a member, then you get a percentage of what he purchases. And you will be paid for every minute that you spend in Live Chat.
Q. What is the percentage that I can make?
A. That depends on how often you are on the system and how many messages you send to male members and how many minutes you are on Live-one-on-one calls. It can be anywhere from 10% to 50%
Q. What about when the member re-orders? Do I get a percentage of that?
A. Yes! As long as you are still working as a Phone Actress and working a minimum of time on the Chat-Line, you will receive a percentage of every re-order a member makes, if you were the one who was responsible for his initial order.
Q. Do I make my commissions only when I am actually on the Chat-Line working?
A. If a member re-orders and you are sleeping, you still make a commission.
Q. What if a member re-orders while he is chatting with another Phone Actress?
A. Good Question. In that case the commissions will be split between the Phone Actress originally associated with that member and between the Phone Actress that was chatting with him at the time of the re-order.
Q. What is the split in that case?
A. This will vary depending on the performance of the Phone Actresses, but it will be as much as a 50/50 split.
Q. What if a non-member is listening to my greeting and tries to send me a message or a Live-Chat request?
A. Again, they will hear the message saying, “this is a paid service, to become a member press….” If they become a member at that point, then you will make a commission because you were the Phone Actress that he was sending a message just before he bought a package of time.
Q. It sounds too easy.
A. It is!
Q. Are there only Phone Actress’s on the Chat-Line?
A. No, hundreds of local women call in daily that are not paid Phone Actresses.
Q. OK, so what happens if a male member re-orders while he is chatting just a regular female caller who is not a Phone Actress?
A. Good Question. In that case, there is no one to split the commission with and you will get the full re-order commission.
Q. Is the commission on re-orders the same as on the initial order?
A. The re-order commission is slightly less that the commission on new orders.
Q. You keep talking about orders and commissions. Are you sure, I don’t have to sell anything?
A. There are no sales involved. You simply send messages to as many (or all) men on the system as you can. If they become a member after receiving your message, then you get a commission. It is just that simple.
Q. But, what if I want to sell something? If there nothing I can push or up-sell the member on?
A. Yes, but it is not mandatory. Once you are chatting Live with a member, you will be able to tell them about discounted chat packages they can purchase by using a special coupon code. In addition, of course, that coupon code will be associated with you, and you will make a commission on that order.
Q. Can you summarize the ways that I can make money?
A. (i) you send a message (or a Live Chat request) to a non-member and he becomes a member, then you make a commission.
(ii) A member is listening to your greeting and tries to send you a message (or a Live Chat request), hears the message that he must be a member in order to perform that function, THEN orders a chat package in order to send you a message. You make a commission
(iii) You are chatting Live with someone and they run out of minutes and goes to the re-order dept to order more. You make a commission.
(iv) You are not online and a member, who is associated with your Phone Actress code, re-orders time, then you will make a commission.
(v). you are chatting Live with a member and tell him you know of code so that he can receive discounted (20% or more off) chat packages. If he re-orders using that code, then you get a commission.
(vi). You will be paid per minute for your Live Chat. However, the significant money is in new member package and renewal commisisons.
Q. What is the rate of commission I am paid?
A. That is based on several factors.
(i) The amount of initial members that order packages as a result of messages sent by you or originating attempts by a non-member to send you a message.
(ii) The percent your commission is also based on how many message you send in total and on the amount of time you are in live one-on-one chats with Members.
Q. Why is my commission based on chatting Live with members and not just based on how many new members sign up after contact from or to me?
A. Because once someone is a member we want to motivate you to chat with him.
Q. You said before that if a Member re-orders time while I am chatting with him, that I will get a commission based on my Phone Actress percentage level. You also said that I would have to share that commission with the Phone Actress who was originally connected to that member.
Q. Can I quit working for you and continue getting my commissions?
A. No and Yes. If you quit altogether, then no, you will cease receiving your commissions.
However if you were at a commission level of 50% (for example) and you decided to work less; then as long as you are on the Chat-Line the minimum required time, then you will continue to receive commissions, however at a lower rate.
Q. Can you give me an example?
A. Lets say you have been working 20, 30 or more hours a week and you are converting many non-members to paid-members, and you are spending the required time chatting Live to member that happens to put you in the 50% commission status.
Then you decide that you want to take a month or more off and work less. Well, as long as you are working the minimum of hours per week on the Chat-Line, then you will get commissions.
That minimum has not been set yet, however it will probably be somewhere around 5 hours per week. However, your commissions may drop to half or more, depending on other factors.
Q. By what method am I paid?
A. You will have the option of receiving your payments by Direct Deposit to either your existing Checking or Savings account, existing Debit Card account – or – if you do not have an account (or wish to keep your account information private) we can have a Debit Card account setup for you.
Q. Are there any other methods by which I can be paid?
A. Direct Deposit is the preferred method of payment, because it the fastest way to receive your money. However, if you prefer not to disclose your banking information –and you do not want a separate Debit Card – you may instead request your payments be mailed to you by check.
Q. How often will I be paid and are taxes deducted?
A. Phone Actresses are paid every two weeks. Currently, there is a $25 minimum threshold for payment. If the $25 minimum of Unpaid Earnings has not been met, earnings will continue to accumulate (roll-over) until the following pay period. No taxes are ever withheld. Our Phone Actresses are Independent Contractors responsible for their own taxes.
Q. Do I have to send sexually explicit messages or Chat Live in a very adult way to members and non-members?
A. No. You can chat in whatever way makes you feel comfortable. However, sexier conversations or message usually gets more response than vanilla ones. You will have to find out what works for you.
Q. Do you teach Phone Actresses what to say on the phone?
A. Our Phone Actress manager(s) can give you some hints; however, this kind of thing usually comes naturally once you are on the phone.
Q. Can I just have non-sexually explicit conversations and send only non-explicit messages to men?
A. Yes, however you may not make as much money as you potentially could. However, you are welcome to be as vanilla or as sexy as you want to be.
Q. How explicit can I go while chatting with a member.
A. Explicit as you want to be.
Q. If I have existing clients, can I bring them over to your company?
A. Yes. If they call our company then you will make the same commissions on them as you would on any other member that joins because of you.
Q. Can I use my cell phone or smart phone to Chat?
A. Yes, you can use your cell phone, smartphone, home phone, even Skype or Vonage. All you really need is a phone with an interference free connection. You are responsible for your own plan minutes and any associated costs. Most providers offer unlimited minute plans including long distance.
Q. Are there other ways to use my smart phone without using my regular plan minutes?
A. Yes. Several companies offer downloadable apps that allow you to use your smart phone. For example, Skype offers a $3.99/month plan for calls within the US and Canada for up to 10,000 minutes per month.
