stripper-sales2School is in and today’s stripper tips blog post is on how to become a stripper and that is stripper sales.

Strippers are the best sales people in the world.

It has often been said that if you want to show someone how to become a good sales person, then take them to a strip club for the evening.

There is no place on earth where you can part with as much money as fast, that you had no intention on spending.

Stripper Sales Tips #1 –  Give customers Something For Nothing

When you go into a strip club a stripper will approach you and charm you. She will do something to get you excited i.e. sit on your lap flatter you etc. What does the customer have to do in return, nothing. The customer gets a free sample as it were of the service that could follow.  Your chances of falling for the bait and buying are significantly increased.  The same thing happens a stripper dances on stage and makes eye contact, anything that offers a free sample.

Stripper Sales Tips #2 -  Know  your customers

Strippers ask open ended questions to get customers talking. Questions that will end with a customer saying yes or no are no good, strippers ask questions like ‘how has your day been today’ or something that will engage the customer and get them talking.
This allows the stripper to develop some rapport with that particular customer and tailor the sales pitch to fit the individual.

Stripper Sales Tips #3 -  Tailor the Sales Pitch

There are many different types of sales approach that strippers make depending on what she thinks the person likes.  For example ‘I like to get dirty’ or ‘my tits are real’ or ‘do like blondes’ etc.  A good stripper will adjust herself and find a common ground based on the answers the customer gives based on her experience.

Stripper Sales Tips #4 – Sell An Outstanding Product or Service
The stripper knows she has to have a great product or provide an invaluable service. That’s why she keeps in tip top shape and learns how to be a great conversationalist. That way she has the absolute best product to work with.

Stripper Sales Tips #5  – Provide Excellent Customer Service
A good stripper understands she need to impress you on the first dance or the customer will not come back for repeat business.  She knows that without this she cannot get to her ultimate destination – the up sell.

Stripper Sales Tips #6 -The Big Up sell
As with all great sales people, the stripper reels the customer in on a relatively cheap introduction sell  for example a lap dance.  Once the customer has had a taste she then markets her other srvices like the vip room where the money is at. Without the first small front lapdance sale this would have been much harder work.  A good stripper understands that to find new customers takes time and effort, but to market to the customer that is already in front of you saves time and makes money.

Stripper Sales Tips #7 -  Alwasys Be Closing (A.B.C.)
A stripper who makes great money is always closing. To do this she uses a variety of closing techniques.  Like ‘come and have some private fun  in the vip room where its more intimate’ or the ‘companion close’ which involves getting your buddies to encourage to take the lap dance.

Stripper Sales Tips #8 – Target A Niche Audience
Stripper know their market.  They are always on the look out for spenders. Is someone ordering lots of drinks and paying for the rounds or have they left an open tab which indicates they are going to stay and spend. A good stripper knows which customers to go after and not waste her precious time with cheap asses.

Stripper Sales Tisp #9 – Persistence Pays
A good stripper knows no matter how great the worlds best baseball player is he will strike out a lot of the time and  rejections are going to happen. Strippers understand the numbers game the more approaches she makes the more yes’s she gets.

Stripper Sales Tips #10 – Branding
Strippers are sales branding geniuses. I don’t think  i’ve ever come accross any stripper called Molly or Ethel.  You get the pleasure of being seen by Mercedes, Mona Lisa or Destiny.

    Cool!! this is all very important info alot of people probably never thought this industry was basically all about selling, Knowing the customers needs who’s spending money and who’s not. I can spot a baller out of a crowd of 300 men! I can appreciate you teaching and answering questions,

  2. Johnny on June 29th, 2009 9:11 pm

    a customer’s point of view:

    1) never approach a guy from behind. He wants to get a good look at you and fantasize a bit before he decides he likes you or not.

    2) don’t rush a guy as soon as he arrives. He wants to look around and get the layout of the place, figure out the best place to sit, see what the girls look like, see if his favorites are there that night, have a drink first, maybe order something to eat and enjoy the stage show first, …

    3) just because he rejects you the first time, don’t forget to stop by later. He might not have been ready yet or he realized he might like you afterall. He might have been waiting for the hot girl who was there last time or his first choice is fully occupied.

    4) circulate. Don’t hang out in a corner with one guy or your girlfriends. There could be some guy waiting for you with a lot of cash but you disappeared. If there’s a bar hang out there awhile. At least every half hour just walk around in every section of the club. Walk slowly enough so a potential customer can get your attention. Just smile and make eye contact with everybody. If he likes you you’ll get some response, if not don’t hassle him.

    5) if a new guy wants some dances don’t keep putting him off because all your regulars are wanting their dances. He could be a new regular. Give him a couple of dances early on at least.

    6) stage dances are good advertisement for private dances. Since a tipper is already interested ask him if you should stop by his table after you get off stage.

    7) don’t sit down with a customer unless they ask you. They could be waiting for the girl right behind you. (if there’s any fee involved with sitting at your table you should mention it upfront instead of presenting a big bill later like unsavory places do).

    8) with some DJs it’s hard to know when one song ends and the next begins so the dancer should inform the customer frequently about how many dances were performed. Maybe collect the money after every 5 dances to make sure he can pay up. Guys don’t like it when the girl says she danced twice as many dances as he thought. Things could get ugly. The good girls ask after every dance whether they should continue.

    9) if a club has a basic price for a dance don’t tell a guy that you charge more than the going rate. Guys go there for fun, they don’t like to get ripped off and that spoils the mood. Don’t ask for a tip above and beyond the normal price after a dance is over. If you were any good and they liked you they’ll ask for more dances.

    10) it’s easy to get another dance from a guy by heating things up towards the end of a song. He won’t want to stop at that point.

    11) guys have different tastes in girls. He might be in a mood for blonds instead of brunettes that night. He might prefer naturals instead of silicone(bowling balls aren’t sexy, a little natural bounce is sexy). He might prefer small or big butts. Don’t take it personally if he doesn’t want your company. He’s trying to fulfill his fantasies afterall.

  4. shia on September 7th, 2009 3:28 pm

    i go blank when conversating… how would i keep engaged? u rock!!!

  5. Mia Robbins on September 10th, 2009 10:34 pm

    Hi Shia,

    WHen you are conversing, think like you are talking to a hot guy you really like, make sure you ask him questions about himself. Jessica Simmonds book gives a list of questions in her book so that you can keep your customer intrigued for hours. If you want to make more money, she tells you how. I used her book, which is why i recommend it
    I hope that helps
    Thank you

    The information I listed below is for dancers in California, however, ALL exotic dancers NEED to look into their local labor laws. Exotic Dancing is a legitmate business: the club owners are licensed businesses, pay taxes etc.Governor Davis signs bill supporting exotic dancers!

    On Friday, September 29, 2000, Governor Gray Davis signed Assembly Bill 2509 (Authored by Assemblyman Steinberg). A.B. 2509 improves enforcement and administrative procedures of wage and hour laws before the Labor Commissioner and the courts, and increases civil penalties and damages for violations. The bill will be in effect as of January 1, 2001.
    A.B. 2509 classifies exotic dancers as employees, and entitles them to keep their gratuities (“tips) from patrons. Under existing labor laws, employers can’t take gratuities intended for the employee or deduct or credit gratuities against wages due.
    Owners who require the payment of “stage fees,” “commissions,” or ”quotas” from any portion of dancers’ tips will be in violation of State labor laws. Dancers can file a claim with the Labor Commission and request the return of paid fees and any unpaid wages (you can go back 3 years from the date that you file your claim), or make an anonymous report to the Labor Commission that their employer is charging fees and taking money from dancers’ tips.
    State of California Labor Commission: 455 Golden Gate Avenue, (415) 557-7878

    The girls need to start treating their job as a legitimate profession. Exotic dancers have rights even if you only work part-time. Furthermore, no matter what contract you sign – if it is illegal to began with – it is void. Most club owners know most girls aren’t going to look into these things, so we sign contracts and think we have no control over our job which allows the club owners to control, manipulate and extort money from us.

    I am a waitress at a strip club and I am getting ready to become a dancer. I just have a few questions; At my club we have a waitress contest where the waitresses each go up on stage and dance for one song and then the audience votes for a winner. My first time doing the contest I won. I was surprised I won though becaue all I did was get up there and be sexy and role around. I don’t know any of the stage/pole tricks. Is that a big deal? Can I just learn as I go along or will not knowing the tricks effect my business? Also, how do I transition from casual convo with the customer to (for lack of a better term) sexy talk and asking if they want a dance?

  9. Mia on October 4th, 2009 9:32 am

    Hi Veronica

    Well done for winning. A lot of the time it isnt the daring dancing moves you can do but your attitude on stage.
    In some clubs you make a lot of your money on the stage by tips and in others clubs that does not matter so much. Are you in a club where the girls make most of thier money by dancing on stage or by selling private dances and VIP rooms? You can usually learn as you go along if you do need to do tricks or go to a local pole dancing class

    There is a real way in which you converse with a customer that converts it from normal talk to selling talk and I was really bad at this when i started until I read Jessica’s 7 Step Book. This is why I promote it as the main thing she teaches is how to get them to spend money on you. It is too much to explain here, but if you are serious I would get that book and you will find you will get used to “selling” yourself with the customers. You can learn this on your own but it will take time and the sad thing is that other girls in the club will not teach you

    Good luck

    Linzey had some great info about the laws for dancer – how club owners pay them much less.

    A few lawyers are out there trying to help dancers. THe office is in socal.

  11. admin on October 27th, 2009 9:08 am

    thanks ronnie, your site looks like a good place for the girls if they need any legal advice with stripping or with legal stuff to do with working in the clubs, i see you
    also offer a free consultation which is helpful. thanks. Mia

  12. lanicanegra on January 28th, 2010 11:07 pm

    am new to dancing. How do I over come shyness and gain more confidence in approaching men?

  13. mia on February 16th, 2010 2:18 pm

    Hi Lanicanegra
    I have answered your question in the last section for you
    Mia xx

  14. maggie on April 13th, 2010 8:45 pm

    How do I give a customer a little “taste” of contact, like a hug or sitting shoulder-to-shoulder at the bar, but then stop him from touching me more than that without driving him away or insulting him? And how do I turn down an invitation to hang out after my shift ends, without shattering the illusion that I’m crazy about him?

  15. mia on April 22nd, 2010 2:02 pm

    Hi Maggie,

    When you give him a taste, you then need to pull away and say…not here…we muct go somewhere more private…that way you look like its not you saying no

    Also when he invites you to hang out after work…I make him feel like he has to work for it before I say yes, so say to him,well it depends on if you are a good boy and laugh

    So that he knows you could or couldn’t be joking

    Good Luck
    Mia xx

    im from australia so i dont think the clubs are the same over here different audition process and all i have been thinking of becoming a dancer for a while now and have an audition on tuesday i kind of know what to expect through a friend of mine that used to work there so my question was about my dancer alias as you need one to work there like most clubs. i have had a devil on my shoulder since i was 16 i like to call her lilith kinda my dark sexy side without trying to sound crazy lol:) so really what im trying to ask is what you think of an alias like “Lilith Fire” or just “Lilith” depending on if they want a last name which i doubt
    great blog by the way this website is amazing lots of good helpful info

    thanks from australia
    kayla “Lilith”

    I agree, this site is soooo helpful.
    coming back to it to refresh is a great tip.

    Isn’t that the coolest thing ever? that you’ve created this reference material for tons of girls to keep coming back to. good job, and thanks.
    my first days i kept getting yelled at, i thought to myself, well theres no employee manual for this job, then i realized, here it is!

  27. Scarlett on March 31st, 2012 6:22 am

    I wanted to point out one very important tip: After you get off stage, never get dressed in the dressing room as long as the club allows this. Always get dressed standing off to the side of the stage, or in a corner. This gives customers a chance to work up the nerve to approach you for a dance. (breaks you away from the heard)

  28. Sasha on April 17th, 2012 5:55 pm

    hi! just like to ask a question, in the club i work for there are several women who can earn 900 an evening in VIP. now, there is no contact and it’s only contact.

    These women speak little english and are not the nicest looking women, but still, night after night they’re able to persuade men to enter VIP.

    I myself get VIP but very rarely, i always try and plug it though talking of ‘more intimate’ and ‘away from all this, just me and you’ whilst acting sexy.

    is there something more i could say? im honest about what they’ll recieve, i tell them it’s a topless dance, when they ask about sexual favours there told no straight away, but i do feel like i say it in a nice way.. but yet, time after time my offers are declined and they go for the simple one dance in a booth.

    im a good lapdancer, i have regulars and im consistent. but i cannot for the life of me get the vip’s these women are getting!

    can you help me out? perhaps some tips?


  29. Sasha on April 17th, 2012 5:57 pm

    sorry, it’s only topless.

  30. Jasmine on July 3rd, 2012 10:57 am

    Answer Sasha’s question !!! I have the same problem

  31. Ya Ya on July 10th, 2012 3:05 am

    Jasmine, I’m waiting for Sasha’s comment to be answered too. I rarely get seen for the more expensive services because I’m normally outshone by the girls with very bad English. I wish I knew how to compete against that.

  32. Jo on July 15th, 2012 7:59 pm

    What a great question! I too see alot of skanky looking girls who get a lot of vips. Or the proto type Blonde Thin, and fake boobs which I expect.I8 give great dances, am very exotic looking and can hold a conversation, but I rarely get VIPs.

  33. missy on July 17th, 2012 4:52 am

    i would really like to know too. i have the same problem!!!

  34. Casey on August 20th, 2012 9:16 pm

    This was helpful. I danced for four years , took 2 years off and am about to go back. I was the social butterfly type who sat with everyone but I’ve never been good at the “hustle”. So thanks for the tips! Oh and BTW to all the new dancers, eye contact while on stage works wonders!

  35. "Nikki" on October 9th, 2012 12:15 am

    The same thing happens in the place I work! I’d say I’m not bad looking compared to these “foreign girls” Its hard to compeat, it drives me insane!

  36. Rolland on January 29th, 2013 6:41 am

    This is a good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Short but very precise information… Appreciate your sharing this
    one. A must read article!

  37. cera on June 30th, 2013 6:51 pm

    I’ve been dancing for 9 years and I still suck at selling VIP rooms. The guys always want to know “what are we going to do up there are we going to have sex?” How do I get the VIP room without answering this question? Because of course they’re not going to get sex.

  38. Anonymous on January 6th, 2014 10:49 pm

    For the VIP start with the flirting conversation as you do, eye contact but as you talk to him nod alot, and ask him three random questions he’ll say yes to then say: “I’m really enjoying our time together, if you want to spend more time together we could go to the VIP, it will save you some money compared to $20/song,.. I just want to go somewhere more private with you, and be all yours for a while. id really really enjoy that, wouldn’t you?” while sitting on his lap with your tits in his face.
    get him subconsciously in a pattern of saying yes
    stroke his ego
    make him feel different/special than the other guys
    make him feel he’s getting a deal, saving money. $20/3min=$400/hr!!
    he’ll think your hustling him remind him your motives are just privacy with a special preferred customer
    end with a positive open ended question to put him on the spot. He only has 3sec to think of a reason not to and you already got rid of those, plus its hard to say no to titties in your face with no reasons not to. Watch how many vips you get;)

  39. Asia on April 21st, 2014 2:34 am

    Hi there I am a new dancer!! ;) just wondering what are some good ways to politely turn down guys who either ask for my phone number or ask to hang outside of work without making it seem like I am rejecting them. Sometimes they will ask questions like this before I try to reel them in for some dances and then end up not wanting to spend money. Should I just move on to the next?

  40. My Ling on October 22nd, 2014 9:41 pm

    Can you please answer Asia’s question? I would like to know that too as I am a novice to this stripping industry.

  42. nicole on October 5th, 2015 5:06 pm

    to get more VIPs I first get a guy excited to get a dance then before I begin the dance I tell him he can either have a lap dance for $40 or go to the private room for $200, and I will tell him the private room is way better but whatever he wants is fine with me. and I say this with conviction and genuinely happy to have either dance.
    if they ask what they can have a “VIP I say VIP is where I’ll make you cum, but no sex because this is America * giggle giggle * but We don’t need to have sex for me to make you come.” it works for me a lot and I never have to do a dirty thing in the VIp and they usually cum, from so much excitement!
    don’t forget to always ask in the cutest happiest voice did you like your dance was a good enough for a tip ???

  43. Katrina on October 28th, 2015 7:08 pm

    This is all great info! I have some questions about traveling to strip, I hope I can find some answers..

    I live in Hawaii and want to come to New York for about a month, month and a half to strip. I’ve never done this before..
    How is the strip club scene in New York right now, and in november? I’ve heard of girls making tons of money a night, like $500 at LEAST on a regular basis, usually more.. But that was a year or more ago. How is it right now?

    Also… What should I do about accommodations? Should I pick a club I wanna work at and then get an airbnb close by? If I have a friend who lives an hour away from the club, should I just stay with them for free, or would an hour commute after a shift be a terrible idea?

    I’m also a little worried about the stage fees…What if I go all the way to New York and don’t make as much as I hoped, and actually lose money instead of make it? Granted I am going TO WORK, I would be working at least 5 days a week and pulling some doubles if I can manage it.

    Any light you can shed would be so appreciated! I wanna go for it, just a little nervous and need more info! :) This blog has been super helpful
