5 Social Media Mistakes That Cause Lost $$$ At Your Club or Bar


Photo Source: Males In Motion
 
   Pay attention owners, managers, show directors, bartenders, male dancers, etc., and anyone else that makes a contribution to the livelihood to what I fondly refer to as a dick dancer bar. Online presence is the most important and least expensive (in most cases free) way to promote your bar or club, or yourself, if you are a dancer. I have found five common social media mistakes that I feel can cause a bar or club to lose revenue. I am sharing these in the hope that it will help the bars and clubs stay open that are currently struggling financially. Or possibly, help others keep their revenue growing.

   I am currently in the process of updating the Males In Motion website. This means I am checking our current website listings for bars and clubs and verifying first, if they are still open for business and feature male dancers. If so, I verify the business name, address, phone number and create a link to a google map for the location. I then check to see if they have a website, facebook page, twitter account, instagram account, and will later be adding a link to Yelp reviews. After completion of this update, the information will be verified one more time, and then uploaded to the website in December. I have also added a few pics and videos from bars/clubs that do a great job of keeping their social media accounts active and enticing.
 
   I do this as much for myself as I do for male dancer fans and customers. When I know I will be traveling to a specific city in the U.S. or Canada, I want to be able to quickly check for bars or clubs I most want to visit in that area. The information needs to be up-to-date so I can continue to enjoy sliding dollar bills down those sexy waistbands (and beyond). And maybe experience a private lap dance or two, or three, or ...
 
 
  • (1) Does your bar or club feature male dancers?
       You would be surprised at how many bars or clubs feature male dancers but do not advertise this fact in their ads and online promotions. There is a large potential customer base that will visit a bar or club specifically because they feature male dancers, go-go boys, male strippers, male pole dancers, etc. The advertising and social media posts skip over the fact that a sexy male is shaking what nature gave him in a pair of underwear, hopefully skin-tight and skimpy. But the fact is, he is half-naked or will be eventually. Woohoo! Please have my dirty martini ready when I hit the door! However, if no one knows outside the inner circle, potential income is lost.

  • (2) If I message your social media will you answer my question?
       For those clubs that I have been told feature male dancers but I cannot find any information that states they do on their social media, I message them through social media. Some of them reply quickly. For me quickly is within two days. Of course, sooner is better. Others never reply. Why is someone not monitoring their social media? How many potential customers have messaged them only to be ignored or the question is answered after they have traveled to and left the city? When I cannot find any information that states a bar or club has male dancers, and my questions are left unanswered, that bar or club is not listed on my website and I do not follow them on social media. Potential customers will look elsewhere and potential income is lost. .
  •  
  • (3) How current is the information on your social media?
       I discovered many websites, facebook pages, twitter accounts and instagram accounts that have either never been used, or have been abandoned. For some, the last tweet or post was several years ago. The website has not been touched for several years. They were still celebrating New Year's 2014! Nice pics, but what are you doing now? Because of an inactive social media account or out-of-date website, I have wondered if the business is still open. I'm sure others who are searching for information have wondered the same.
       I have two recommendations for non-active websites and social media accounts. One, update it and start monitoring it so you can reply to potential customers. Social media brands go in and out of style, but there are still potential customers using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Second, if it is not going to be used to promote your business, delete it! It is better to not have that social media account if it is going to be out-of-date and inactive. When potential customers find a dead website or social media account they are going to look elsewhere. Potential income is lost.

  • (4) Where are the shirtless men?
       I have said "shirtless men" in the question but shirtless men in their underwear is even better. Come on, be honest. It's the hot pics and videos that capture the attention of most social media readers, viewers, surfers and participants. Videos and pics capture the attention of those who are searching for bars and clubs featuring male dancers. I recommend that you use more than simple basic text to announce that you have male dancers. Entice, seduce and encourage potential customers with pics and videos. It's been said over and over, sex sells.
     
       What is going to capture the attention of your potential customer more --- the words 'male dancers' --- or the words --- 'male dancers' accompanied with a pic or video of a hot male dancer wearing underwear displaying a nice vpl (visual penis line)? It's a no brainer. And the goal is to bring in the customers and keep the business successful and profitable, right? If your ad shows me words and your competitor's ad shows me a pic or video of a hot male dancer, guess which club I'm going to visit first? If a potential customer goes to your competition, then potential income is lost. If they stay home or in their hotel room because they weren't enticed to come out and see for themselves, potential income is lost.
  •  
  • (5) Have you felt the power of love?
       An online ad, post or promotion has the potential of multiplying itself exponentially. I call this the power of love because online visitors will click 'like' or click the heart to show they like the post. This tells their followers that they like or love something. The number of people who have liked or loved your pic or video will show as well, letting potential customers see and follow what is popular with others.

       This will most likely not happen if your ad or post is boring or of poor quality. The main thing I've run into here is businesses using the same basic ad over and over. They may change a pic or two, and the date, but it is the same basic ad that was used last week. Yes, it does take a little work to change it up. But if your readers love or like the ad or post, they will click and express their opinion. This is added to the data collected by the social medias, which will influence their future experiences on social media. It will also indicate to their friends and followers what they are into. This could influence others to check out your ad and information creating a potential customer.
       If they really like or love the ad or post, they are going to share it. If you put in a little extra work and they share it, then you have multiplied your reach and exposure. There are many ways someone can be motivated to share a post. Motivators include a hot video or pic of a male dancer, an event they are excited about and want to go to with friends, humor, fashion such as costume or even style of underwear on a male dancer, an event in a city where they will be visiting, an event that is happening on a night they want to celebrate their birthday, etc. Ask yourself, "what can I do with this promotion to make potential customers want to share it with other potential customers?"

Trevor Northman ~ Go-Go Dancer ~ Wash., D.C. The Males In Motion October Obsession


Photo Source: Trevor Northman ~ Washington, D.C.
 
   Go ahead and get the memes ready because after this blog, you're going to be calling me nasty. But I don't care. I'm just going to say what we're all thinking. To give you a hint, our collective dirty minds are thinking...my mind is telling me no, but my body is saying.... YASSSSSSSSSSSSSS! (Honestly, I don't think anyone that reads this blog has a mind that is saying 'no'! But that's just my opinion. This sure is good tea.)
 

Photo Source: Trevor Northman ~ Washington, D.C.
 
   I saw the above pic posted on Facebook a few months ago. Immediately I snagged it and added it to my Facebook album called "Mike's Favorite Pic Of The Week!" But there were consequences that I wasn't expecting. Since I've been a bad bad boy on Facebook in the past, I was placed in FB jail for 30 days (once again) because someone determined the pic was inappropriate and reported it. I don't see nothing wrong with a little album post. That is, unless you are able to read my mind. If they could have recorded a video of what was going on in my head as I looked at that hot pic of Trevor Northman...well, it is certain that I would have been banned from FB for life! ****INSERT EVIL GRIN HERE!****
 

Photo Source: Trevor Northman ~ Washington, D.C.
 
   I do not blame Trevor Northman for my being incarcerated in FB jail. He can't help it that his body makes your eyes dance along every muscle and contour. He can't help it that when he smiles at you, your breathing gets heavier. He can't even help it that his ass makes your heart stop for a couple of beats. And it isn't his fault that when he moves, our imagination takes over and becomes an x-rated porn with Trevor in a starring role. It isn't his fault that you can see that leather harnesses were meant for his body and ... ... ... ... ... oh sorry, what was I saying. Anyway, for me, a 30 day sentence was well worth it!

   I have been following Trevor ever since I first caught a glimpse of that tight body. I welcome any pic of him that scrolls down my wall. I love to play any video of him from his Instagram page. And even though some may argue, I want to make it plain and clear that there is something good that comes out of our nation's capital city. Trevor's home base is Washington, D.C. (I used the word 'good' above, but I also want to make it plain and clear that in my mind other nouns, verbs and adjectives are being used...very often...very emphatically.)

   Of course, don't take my word for it. Develop your own dirty mind and create mental images of your own. You can follow Trevor Northman at the locations below:

   If you would like a more personal experience and see Trevor in person. You can find him dancing in D.C. and other cities. Follow his schedule from his Facebook page. Many of the pics and videos that he post are from Distikt C held at the DC Eagle on the second Saturday of each month.

   In case you haven't understood what I've been saying, there are things about Trevor that I really, really like. I like his face, his eyes, his lips, his shoulders, his muscled arms, his hands, his chest with those amazing nipples, his flat stomach, his bulge, his ass, his thighs, his calves, his feet, oh hell, just fill in the blank! Did I mention his ass?

   I'm not sure when I'll make it back to Washington, D.C. so if you have the opportunity to go and tip Trevor, please tip him once for me. Tell him Mike from Males In Motion says hello! When you tip for me, ask him to turn around and slide in the tip (that means $, nothing else) just above that amazing ass. Then ask, "Do you like to be tied up?" Tell him you were just asking for a friend. In this case it would be true. I want to know. (No shit, I've got goosebumps running across my skin right now.)

   When you've finished reading the blog, go to your sex toy box and get out your flogger. Then click play for R. Kelly below and look back over Trevor Northman's pics. That's where my mind is at! Once again... ****INSERT EVIL GRIN HERE****.

We Let The Monster Out To Play In October


Photo Source: Revolver Bar ~ West Hollywood, CA
 
   The leaves are changing colors and starting to fall. As the sun goes down, the temperature drops leaving that nip in the air. Apple cider and hot chocolate top the list of favorite beverages. And most importantly, we let the monster out to play!

   When speaking of a monster, you may start to imagine the classics like Frankenstein, the Wolfman, Dracula or the Headless Horseman. Maybe you follow the cult movies and think of Pumpkinhead, Chucky, Jason or Michael Myers. Of course, you might also be thinking of the zombies of the Walking Dead. This year, you probably added a certain clown to your list of favorite monsters. At Males In Motion we think of the October Monster in quite a different way.

   Over the past few months we have collected pics from social media that best represent the monster we most enjoy. We've waited for October and now, we are ready to let our monster out to play!

   When the monster is first observed, one's mouth drops open from horror, excitement or even joy. This is probably due to its ability to cause both pleasure or pain. Or, if it happens to be in the right environment and provided with the right type of stimulation, the monster will grow even bigger, right before your very eyes.

   There are those that believe our monster is magical. They believe it possesses certain powers and abilities. Some have even compared it to a horse.

   It brings out aggression in some. They are obsessed with getting a hand on it. And although others may have their doubts, when facing this monster, there are some who are confident they can take it.

   We view our monster as a thing of beauty. And many in our social circle agree. We know that they collect images of our monster to display or share with others. It is even rumored that they keep a special collection of these images to view when experiencing a very private alone time.

   In some cultures our monster is given a high status. Presentation music is played as gifts of money (usually in one dollar bills) are presented as part of an often practiced ritual. The monster may then choose to display itself without the lawful covering. I've heard stories of followers seeing a monster in all its naked glory.

   There are places where an image of our monster is forbidden. In the Kingdom of Facebook an image of our monster may result in your being thrown in their dungeon for up to 30 days. But our monster is so beloved that many still risk it on a daily basis. We admire their devotion.

   When the veil between the living and dead is lifted this Halloween, we encourage you to seek out our monster. You can find him in the locations shown in this blog. We have listed only a few. If you live in the Western portion of the United States, you are in luck. Our monster is known to pop up in great numbers in your area. But that doesn't mean he isn't in other regions as well. Find one in your area and share the experience. Join us and let the monster out to play this October!

His Boys Spread Across Our Coffee Table? ~ Morgan LeShade, Tampa Photographer


Photo Source: Black Rose Photography      Model: Roman
 
   Three words appeared together on a post that was scrolling down my fb wall ... 'full nude men'. They were arranged in the title Men of Tampa Bay Full Nude! An ad with amazing and hot pics was with the post. I was visually delighted and instantly wanted to know more, and of course SEE more.
 

Photo Source: Black Rose Photography      Link to Men of Tampa Bay Full Nude
 
   This was a few months ago when I learned the ad was for a weekly event held on Sunday nights at Players Club Tampa (formerly known as Skin). What was normally a female strip club the rest of the week, was now going to be full of sexy and naked male dancers on Sunday nights! And from the pics on the ad, I could tell it was a place where I wanted to be.

   The main point in the last paragraph was "from the pics on the ad, I could tell it was a place where I wanted to be." The pics in the ad were sensual, inviting and motivated me to want to see these men in person. (And yes, there was still more to be seen, because their hands covered their man parts...you know, Facebook police and all.) Black Rose Photography was shown to be the source of these great photos. As a photographer and promoter, I greatly appreciate a photo that motivates a customer to want to visit the club or bar where the dancer will be performing. It takes a great eye and attention to detail to be able to create such an image.

   A few weeks later, while preparing a blog featuring Reggie Cox (in pic above), a male dancer from the Tampa Bay area, I kept coming across the name Black Rose Photography. I also learned that Reggie was actually one of the dancers at the Men Of Tampa Bay Full Nude shows. And some of the best pics of him that I had hoped to use in the blog were taken by none other than Black Rose Photography. At this point, I had to know who was the force behind Black Rose Photography. As a result, I was introduced to the name Morgan LeShade.
 

Photo Source: Black Rose Photography      Model: Justin
 
   Morgan LeShade started photographing male dancers and drag queens in the Tampa area in 2014. The locations where he has focused his lens include such clubs as Liquid Tampa (where he started but is now closed), Southern Nights Tampa, Wena's Night Club and Showbar, Players Club Tampa, The Flamingo Resort in St. Pete and others.

   Morgan is currently working on the Men of Black Rose photo shoots that center around hand picked males. Some of the most popular men he has worked with include Teo Carter, Reggie Cox, Roman, Peter Alexander, and Jose Dones. But these are just a few. He pointed out that although they are liked for their fantastic bodies, they also have lovable personalities.

   Morgan would love to publish a popular coffee table book. He says he was inspired by the work of Mark Henderson. He also hopes to see some of his work displayed in popular magazines.

   Morgan doesn't limit himself to photographing just male dancers (although we are very glad they are included). He basically photographs whatever suits his fancy whether that be drag, landscapes, men, women, animals, objects, etc. It depends on his mood.

   Check out the links above and view more of Morgan's work. You'll find some very, shall we say "appetizing" pics. You'll also get to see more pics of the dancing boys. If you happen to visit or live in the Tampa area, look for Morgan behind the camera at the clubs. Tell him Mike from Males In Motion says 'hello'. Also, please tell him THANK YOU for capturing the dancing boys in his pics and sharing them with us. We hope he publishes that book. We'd love to see his boys spread across our coffee table.

   If you see the words 'full nude men' send me a message. And if it involves male dancers, send me a link. Until next time, don't forget to tip the boys...whether they are half-nude or full nude!
