Getting Paid as a Smutlancer

We spend a lot of time, as smutlancers, saying that we should be paid for our work, and that’s completely true. But once you’ve secured the agreement for payment, there’s still a lot of work to be done — and a lot of ways where things can go wrong. Deserving payment is one thing, but actually getting paid is another. In this episode, let’s talk about actually getting paid as a smutlancer. In this episode: This week’s episode is brought to you by QuickBooks Self Employed Different types of work and situations require different ways of handling payments You need...

Smutlancer Monthly Income Report: August 2018

I’m not going to lie to you — putting out my income and expenses onto the internet leaves me feeling extremely vulnerable. Last month I went through an anxious, rage-y thing (in my head, where no one else could see). It wasn’t until people told me how much this helped them or inspired them that I took a deep breath about it. And now it’s time to look at the August numbers.

But as sex positive smutlancers, it’s equally important to be as inclusive as possible. Most of your adult clients want this (the best ones definitely do), but making it happen isn’t always easy. Adult companies have to think about SEO and what people search for online. They likely have a certain demographic they want to reach.

Breaking Up With a Client Doesn’t Have to Be Heartbreaking

I know, I know…some of you are thinking, “Breaking up?! I’m trying to get a client — not get rid of them!” If you’re just starting out in this smutlancing thing, it probably seems impossible that a day will come when you’ll break up with (aka fire) a client. A few years ago, I thought the same thing. Desperate for work, I took anyone who came my way (this sounds a lot like my love life when I was 20…). I never sabotaged my career but even when it was awful, I’d wait for them to end it with me...
