Virtual Noob Guide Chapter 5:
-Adult: What'd you think, Cinderella? It's the internet. The best part about this profession is even if you can't dance the funky chicken in real life, your avatar can straddle that pole like King Kong on the Empire State building. They're pre animated! You just have to sit on it! Sound easy? Think again. Once you learn to sit on the pole without your AO shoving it up your asterisk, you might have to talk to people. The typical gestures won't do here. You'll need something with the word sexy or the club name in it. Emoting also can work well. That's where it makes your avatar look like they're not talking but they are. Totally trips noobs up and they want to shower you with I'z...among other things. Ask your manager, they want to see you succeed...no I mean it...there's no drama in clubs...strictly professionals...really. Rolling right along then!
-Management: Ok, now if you get really good at talking people there's a slim chance someone will offer you a job as a manager of something. Now if it's a club, you really just do what you do as a dancer, only now people ask questions. "OMGZ, I can't play afk on the camping pole anymore?!?" Yep, that's right, you're in the big leagues now, time to pull out the big boy panties...eh..you know what I mean.
-Land business: Now another administration role is the estate manager. Once you complete your bachelor's degree in land sales (or date the boss), you're ready to start. The first thing you need to rememeber is the customer is your friend. People will IM you like crazy, only now instead of something funny your friend did, it's business stuff. Put on your game face and learn to type. Gestures don't cut it in IM. Just like a real life power player, you should never respond right away to customers. It makes you look desperate, like you were waiting for someone to ask you a business question while you were working. Pffft.
-Sell stuff: "Sign me up for that!!" Sure! (see Sugar Daddy or Momma)
Ok, the most important thing to remember with making I'z iz..*coughs*..IS...to not brag. It's considered impolite...no really. Definately not cause it's embarrassing to say how much you really make. If you tell people in real life, lie.....I mean..... no, yeah I mean lie. Especially to friends and familly, cause they may laugh at you. Watch this spot, next section we'll talk about groups.
