How do I create my profile?

To register with NZ Pleasures please follow this link to the main page.
Up in the top right of the screen you will see a button ‘advertisers login/register’ click this.
This will then bring up a pop up screen where on the left hand side you need to choose what business you have, be it an Independent Escort, Agency or Parlour, Strip Club or Adult Store; click the register here button.

From there just follow the prompts and then you will be well on the way to creating an advertising profile.

Who manages my profile?

Your profile will be completely self managed, you have total control, the only moderation will be on new photos, pending announcement banners and screening for any details that cannot be permitted by New Zealand law.

Alternatively, if you do not have Internet access, or have a lack of time, we can help with the management of your account. Simply inquire by getting in touch with us through any of our contact options.

How long till my profile goes live?

NZ Pleasures aims to have your profile live within 24 hours, if not earlier. The moderation period between you submitting your profile and us giving it the thumbs up is to make sure everything is filled in correctly.

Do I have to show my face?

No. Showing your face is a personal choice that we leave to you. For newcomers to the sex industry we would advise you to not rush into this decision.

How can I update my profile?

Updating your description, rates, availability and more can all be done by you, no need to wait for NZ Pleasures to update information for you (photos will be moderated before updating). However, if you are unable to update your profile, simply email the NZ Pleasures team with your changes and we’ll sort that out for you.

Queries regarding images?

IMAGE STANDARDS:

  • The photos must be of you
  • You must be the copyright owner of any photos you upload
  • Photos must be taken in the last 12 months
  • While your photos do not need to be taken by professional, please upload only quality photos
  • Avoid zooming in on a body part such as a nipple or a foot. Show more of the picture
  • Ensure you use sufficient light when taking selfies to ensure quality
  • Please refrain from adding text and stickers to your images
  • Please avoid using photo with watermarks
  • Images showing genitalia must be uploaded to the VIP photo area only

DO NOT:

  • Use stock images from google
  • Use someone else’s images
  • Upload poor quality images and files that pixelate
  • Upload images that are hard to look at
  • Cover the image in stickers and text
  • Use images with watermarks (other than your own personal business watermarks)

IMAGE TYPE:
There are two designated areas for images; standard images are by all, while the VIP images are limited to those who are VIP members. Please upload any erotic, revealing – especially lower genitals, or fully nude images to the restricted VIP images section.

IMAGE QUALITY:
We understand professional photography can be expensive, so we ask that you upload only your quality photos. JPEG files recommended with high pixel quality, so the images are crisp. NZ Pleasures reserves the right to remove any images we deem inappropriate.

IMAGE AMOUNT:
Premium Profiles – 10 images

UPDATING OR REMOVING IMAGES:
This can all be done by you via your dashboard.

IMAGES TOO LARGE TO UPLOAD:
Watch our NZ Pleasures ‘How to’ video below for help with this issue. It is a fix for those using Windows, for a MAC, I’m sorry but I think Google will help.

How do I get my photos verified?

Verification is not required but recommended as a way to establish trust with clients.

We have a number of ways to confirm photo verification, please get in touch with us to talk through these.

Help I’ve forgotten my password!

Never fear….reset is there! If by chance you have forgotten your password you can simply click the ‘Forgot my password’ button underneath the login area. There you can enter in your registered email address and request a temporary password, which can then be reset to one of your choosing.

If you would like to change your password at any point you can do so through your personal profile page. Simply login and go to the ‘My Account’ page. Enter in your new password and you are ready to go.

How can I take my profile down?

If you wish to simply ‘hide’ your profile for a certain amount of time and return to it at a later date, this can be achieved through your personal profile page by selecting the ‘hide profile’ button on the left-hand side of the screen.

If you wish for your profile to be permanently deleted, you can do this by sending an email to customerservice@nzpleasures.co.nz and requesting that your profile is removed completely, please also put your username in the email for easy identification.

What are the touring options?

NZ Pleasures’ complimentary touring system allows you to update and advertise your upcoming tours before you arrive.

Log in to your account
Go to the “Tours” button on the left of the dashboard
Complete the location and dates you plan to tour
Use the “add another location” button for more than one city

What happens next?
Your profile will now automatically be placed in the locations you have chosen, displaying the dates of your tour across the front of your profile. This will not affect your current/base location.

Is my information safe?

All available measures have been taken to ensure that your personal and private details are protected at all stages. We understand that privacy is key to many in this industry and as such we take this very seriously.

No information will be passed or sold to third parties unless required to do so by law.

For more information please see our Privacy Policy contained in our Terms and Conditions. If you have any specific concerns please feel free to contact us.

Statistics and traffic

We are currently working through an issue when displaying statistics, if you would like to know your views/visits please get in touch with us via our contact page.

You will be able to access your statistics from your personal profile page. The link for this is located on the left hand bar.

You will have the opportunity to see how many new visitors have looked at your page, how many are returning visitors, how many people have added your account to their favourites, and then your weekly and monthly statistics.

Top Profile of the Month

Top Profile of the Month is given to the Independent Escort, Sensual Masseuse, or Domme who, for the previous month has had the most profile views.

You will be invited to choose a prize from our NZ Pleasures prize site and any NZ Pleasures external advertising, will be updated to reflect your achievement.

To be eligible for this award you must be advertising with NZ Pleasures on the 1st of the following month. So for example, you had over 1000 views during June, to be eligible for the award you will need to be advertising with NZ Pleasures on the 1st of July.

How to use social media to promote your business.

Twitter: an easy to use business tool to promote your brand, but it’s not for everyone, and that’s okay.

A few hints and tips:

  • Twitter gives you the opportunity to engage with clients in a way that ads cannot so think about how you want to portray yourself.
  • Think before you post, as you have no idea who could potentially be reading. (You can always switch your profile to private and moderate who follows you)
  • The downside to having a private account is others cannot retweet you. Retweets are valuable in having your brand shared with others.
  • Avoid changing your background photo too often; as with any brand, people will recognise you more easily via a consistent imagery.
  • Twitter isn’t the be all and end all, and not every follower is going to book you.
