What is email profiling?

I’m sure when you were a kid your mother told you that we are judged by the company we keep. Funny that when we get older we seemed to forget that because we could sure take advantage of that advice in business. Many people don’t seem to realize that appearances are everything and even on the internet there is a matter of appearance. Who hasn’t heard the phrase “put your best foot forward”. So what is one of the first things people know about you in business? Your email address. Right? Well, smart business people have learned to judge people or use something we call email profiling to avoid people they judge not to be that smart in business based solely on that one thing … the email address.

If I ever come across anyone who uses an email address that ends in @aol.com or back in the day @juno.com. My first thought is to avoid them like the plague. If they don’t know enough to get a real email account then they probably aren’t worth my time so I wouldn’t do business with them.

In time we learned the same about @Yahoo and @Hotmail or nowadays @live as well.

There is nothing wrong with having these kind of email services for personal reasons but for business? It’s very unprofessional. It shows someone like me that issues of reliability and security aren’t a priority for you. Or that you can’t be bothered to spend like $5 a month to get a real @YourName.com email address.

So in short that is what email profiling is. If you are using a free email account for business, chances are you are being judged by that and not in a favorable way.

Are you socially networking stupid?

The new millennium has brought us one major change in our lives and that is the introduction to social networking to our lives.  First it was Friendster, then MySpace, then Facebook and now Twitter.

Many speculated social networking with be just a fad but those people would be short sighted as social networking sites like Twitter have become a part of our lives both personally and in business.  Social networking has become some important in business, now even search engine are modifying the way they return results based on things you and your friends tweet.  In business, having a social networking presence is no longer optional, it’s a must have for even the smallest of webmasters to the largest of companies.

Despite the major importance of social networking, so many webmasters really are clueless in how to best use services like Facebook and twitter.  Since Facebook is so anti-porn and randomly and arbitrarily enforces rules and bans pages to porn stars and adult industry professionals, I am going to only concentrate on teaching you how to best use more adult friendly sites like Twitter.

When you own a business it’s usually your first instinct to promote your business every chance you get.  But with social networking sites like Twitter you need to work against that basic instinct to go on and on about how great your site or business is because that is considered spam and can work against you, if not get your account banned.

So how is it then you can use social networking sites like twitter to promote your website?  Easy.  Just by the very nature of your existence.

If you have something remotely interesting to say people are going to click on it and when they do your name appears and under that appears a link to your website.  That means that the more you use twitter, the better you use twitter, the more people will be exposed to your website.   If you watched something interesting on TV or some great movie, talk about it.  Tell what you liked about it.

Is it ever okay to tweet about your website?  Of course!  It’s important that you do for SEO purposes. You should actually do it at least once a week.  But don’t be a spammer.  Trust me.  It will do you more harm than good.  So if you tweet at least once a day then your occasional (no more than weekly) tweets about some great feature of your website won’t really be noticed or a bother.

Be active and tweet often.  Go out of your way to be  a part of the twitter community.  Tweet about things gong on in your life or interesting facts about your life or your industry.  Reply to tweets sent out by porn stars or others you are following.  If someone tweets “GOOD MORNING!” you reply and say “Good morning to you too!”  If you go out to eat talk about what you ate and how it tasted.  In short, tweet about your life.



Soft and Sweet

If you had asked me a year ago what I thought about the softer side of things, I would have scoffed, telling you that’s just silly.  Nobody cares about tits and ass anymore, they want to see the real deal … they want to see a girl in a 35 person gang bang.  I however would have been wrong and working at Bluebird Films really has taught me that.  They have this site called Babe Channel Babes and it basically is a collection of pretty girl photo galleries featuring different girls, mostly from the UK, like the girls who appear on Bluebird TV.  I have to show you some of these girls so you can see just how amazingly hot they are!  Below are photos of (from left to right) Kirsty Yaqub, Cara Steel and Annie Bullah.

Evelyn is Picture Perfect

For years I’ve seen the great things people can do with Photoshop and long since admired their skills. Truth be told, I’m so not a graphics artist. Don’t get me wrong, I wished I was, it’s just a skill I flat out don’t posses.

Recently I came across a fun little program who says they can take any photo and make it Photoshop like fabulous, so I decided to take a picture of the UK model Evelyn from Bluebird Films and started playing around.  The photo to the left (the whiter skinned one) is the touched up phone to Evelyn.  The first one is the touched up photo while the one below that is the original.  What do you think?  Is Evelyn picture perfect or what?!





Lydia Yapp

I have a new client I’ve been working with, Bluebird Films.  They make adult movies like many other studios but most of their girls are from the UK.   I’ve not really worked with a lot of talent from England before so I’m still learning about these girls.  It may take me awhile, but it’s been a fun learning experience.   Today I got a  new photoset from a model by the name of Lydia Yapp that is scheduled to go live on Babe Channel Babes in a few weeks.  She has a very unique look.  She’s an exotic beauty with a distinctly Asian flair.  Very sexy don’t you think?
