Thread: Price Wars

  1. #1

    Price Wars

    Looks like the naughty Angels and Devils are having a heavenly price war.
    At 120/hour is the 99$ special far behind?
    Will the other popular agencies follow suit?
    Will it spread to Toronto?

    tactics only?

    when msft was fighting the browser war, they offered up IE for free to drive away netscape.

    If I were an expensive agency owner, I would start another agency and offer up a few girls at cost to force the other guy out, since he will not be able to make money at those prices. And of course, once they other guy folds, lo and behold....

    Now, if the other agencies are following the prices down in general, maybe that might be a different matter. But as of now.....

    nah.. I am just too skeptical......

    No surprise.
    Poor economy, US$ almost par with CND$, dozens of new girls joining agencies every month......a price war was bound to happen.
    Popular girls will stay at 180-200, but the ones who sit in vans chewing gum and reading comic books all night while waiting to see 1 or 2 customers will work for the 120- 130/hr agencies.
    One thing is for sure.....Ben will be busy keeping up with the changes....lol

    I actually had written about this in my last post, but then deleted it prior to posting as it would be called shitstiring. Now that the thread has been legitimzed my thoughts: To some degree an oligopoly exists in online agencies. Lately, it's evident that some price competition has broken out. This is probably short term as at some point cost of product becomes inflexible as resources will be diverted elsewhere.

    i.e. Enjoy the cheap pussy while it lasts. At some point the girls will journey elsewhere (Vancover, Toronto, Dubai, wherever the $$$$ are....)or they will figure out some other occupation pays more or at these prices they will start "hitting" us up for extras.

    It's smart business.

    There is a new sandwich shop in my neighborhood and they offered customers a free small sub for their first week - no strings attached. Wasn't half bad and I will almost certainly go back and be a paying customer.

    When I see these new agencies starting up with half-assed websites and girls with no reputation asking for $180, you know they have no shot.

    These price wars do not seem to be the case with indies. For example, Kim now charges $100 more for 2 hours than she used to.

    doesn't nec'ly mean she's working more, or if she can sustain those rates in today's climate.

    Dubai? Dubai is bankrupt. They aren't going to Dubai. Maybe, Toronto.

    It's winter in Montreal. The number of tourists visiting your city is down at this time. The price wars will cease in a couple of months.

    CS:

    You're the man. You got good GFE service for $120/hour? Damn! That's cool.

    Most of the workers in the States are taking a pay cut in lieu of losing their jobs.

    The agencies that charge $180/HR or $200/HR (or $300/HR) may not have many clients for their ladies. Or, the ladies prefer to see fewer clients. If the SP delivers great service, the cutomers, including me, usually give them a generous tip.

    I do love price wars, especially in this bad economy.

    For the non-locals like me, the cost of flying and lodging in Hobbyland eats away at what I can spend on the lovely ladies.

    When prices drop to $120/hr for hot ladies, I'm booking my flight and hotel immediately to lovely Montreal.

    Dude,

    You don't know how much I wish I could.

    Like most knockleheads, I invested in Lehman Brothers and now my investment in that bankrupt company is worth less than US$10; I had invested over US$50K. And I didn't liquidate my real estate investments before the market collapsed. Yes, don't cry for me Argentina.

    I keep checking priceline and others. LOL.

    Cheers.
