About Erotes Consulting
Erotes Consulting Group
Erotes Consulting Group focuses on helping Gentlemen’s clubs succeed. Through the most recent legal and marketing solutions Erotes Consulting is focused on becoming the perfect partner and confidant for our clients with a vested interest in helping them succeed.
We keep up to date with the most legal decisions and regulations. Not only do we review each change in the law regularly, but we do so with an eye towards using those decisions to craft solutions to prevent findings of liability or damages against clubs. Liability is only a part of the issue. The second part is avoiding damages even if liability is established. We seek to address both these issues as a total defense in litigation.
Our marketing solutions focus on driving the profits of the club. The ultimate goal is to train dancers and staff on how to make the most of their time in the club to increase their income and to increase drink purchases and the use of premium services. We do this by training dancers as well as bartenders and floor managers to engage in collaborative efforts with the goal of having everyone participate in driving profits for both dancers and the club.
Erotes Consulting Group is about increasing profits while decreasing risk to the club. Our focus is helping our clients succeed. Call us to discuss your needs and how we can help.
