Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
$200 in fifteen minutes. I remember a certain mix of emotions, as I walked out that door.
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
The people I know who 'just can't quit' this lifestyle, are people who don't plan ahead. Look, if you can make $200 an hour, you won't want to make anything less.
But you don't HAVE to make anything less.
While you're young and beautiful, put yourself through med school, law school, become an accountant, or learn programming.
Move from this to something better. Then no, one would not miss the lifestyle.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
I've been around the block a few times, and learned what to do from the best, and what not to do from the worst.
I've struck a good balance between comfort and income.
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I like punctual, respectful, more vanilla people. I don't care if you're a gorgeous stud. And I dislike people who play these weird fetish games over the phone. Ugh.
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
When I go to a starbucks and order a coffee, I genuinely feel a little better when I walk out of the door. Good customer service, and the product that I ordered.
Well, with M4M work it's the same but tenfold. My customers should leave feeling WAY better. They got what they ordered and had great customer service.
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Read. I prefer technical non-fiction.
I'll do a whole hell of a lot to get sunshine and warm weather all-year round. I just like to take care of myself these days. Was crazier when I was younger.
Why did you become a Masseur?
To retire from crappy, living-wage work. To make great money. To serve as a stepping-stone to greater things.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
1. Go to https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo and search for the M4M sites that have the most users in your region and / or worldwide.
2. Put deliberate thought into building out an advertisement campaign that gets you the type of clients you want.
3. Don't do things you don't want to do. Period. Put emotional health first. Money will come, easily. Your wellbeing is far more important than a 20% increase in income.
4. Download Truecaller app onto smartphone (thank me later)
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
I haven't met many other masseurs.
One thing is for sure: I don't misrepresent myself, steal, or use drugs on the job. Go ahead, google the 411 on Levi West. You'll never see a single review saying "he stole from me", "he showed up high on meth", "his pics weren't accurate".
I try to keep it pretty professional. But then again, I'm sure others do as well.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
I did attend some massage schooling; it taught me how to apply safe / comfortable amounts of pressure. But I won't pretend I'm grade A when it comes to my swedish technique. If you lean more towards the M4M side of things, your training can be very minimal, and you'll still be able to provide great value to your customers.
How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
I think they're usually pretty satisfied.
Again, I always:
- Represent myself accurately
- Show up on time
- Do what I agreed to do
I mean, unless I show up and it's jack the ripper. Then I'm outta there, man.
