We’re Offering a New Service to Clients

Our owner Erika Icon is an accomplished photographer with an art degree. Going forward, clients who are currently with us or join our roster will get free photo services for events. If you have a birthday party or event (which we will more than likely plan/organize for you also), we will photograph it for free and send you all the photos, as well as send them to AVN and other adult sites to post. This is included in our fee and another service we offer at no charge. We also take photos of our clients at all the major awards shows and events. Here are a few photos we’ve taken over the past year.

Fake PR…It’s Out There

We recently read an article about fake PR and could quickly tell what agency it was about. Of course, it wasn’t about us. We won’t go into what that agency does, but it’s pretty bad and the word is spreading. A few PR agencies are really kicking ass and taking care of their clients, and we’re one of those. Many of our clients come from referrals, and that’s how you know you’re doing something right!

Here are a few things that set us apart from the pack:

  • We offer extremely affordable rates, plus we do more for our clients than any other agency, but most importantly we produce results.
  • The Rub PR has consistently gotten our clients mainstream coverage in outlets like The Hype, Cosmo, Cosmo Latina, Buzzfeed, Daily Best, Ask Men, Playboy, Refinery 29, Vice, and many more. Many agencies claim to be mainstream or are perceived as mainstream, but we really aren’t.
  • We’ve scored our clients roles in mainstream horror and thriller films.
  • Our clients always receive a ton of nominations and actually go on to win for Best Male Newcomer, Male Performer of the Year, Trans Performer of the Year, and much more.
  • If you wondering why there’s a girl wearing a crown in the photo above, it’s because we treat our clients like royalty. We respect them, go above and beyond, and are always ethical in our business practices.

When you’re really ready to take your brand seriously, hit us up at info@therubpr.com and we can show you what we can do to elevate your image and career. We work with performers, cam models, adult companies, and studios.

Johnny Gooduck Featured in Digital Version of The Hype

Hip hop mag The Hype has featured another one of our clients–Johnny Goodluck. He not only had his interview online but also made the digital edition with his name on the cover. Not bad for a guy in the industry less than six months. This is just typical of the mainstream coverage we get our clients–we’re one of the top PR agencies out there for adult and mainstream coverage!

What Happens When You Stop PR

Sometimes, people want to take a break from the publicity machine, other leave the industry, and some run out of funds. PR (aka public relations) is something you should budget is for, because it can make or break your career–you want it for longer than just a few months. With hundreds of girls entering adult each month, you need to stand out and we have been very successful in helping new, established and/or performers that just haven’t gotten the attention that they deserve.

So what happens when you stop PR? Your name isn’t constantly out there anymore. People forget about you when you just disappear. Your work could slow down…a lot. You don’t get nominations and/or wins come awards season. Your career isn’t at the level you’d like it to be. And, more than likely you will be out of the industry sooner than you had planned. We’ve seen this happen a lot in the over eight years we’ve been in business.

PR should be like your water or electric bill–a necessity. It’s money better spent than on an expensive purse or shoes. If you want to do well, you need to have a PR team behind you, but make sure it’s the right team. Even if you had PR in the past with a different firm and were unhappy, we can change your mind about how PR works. If you’re brand new or even established and want to take your career to the next level, you need PR. There are so many other reasons besides the ones we’ve listed. Hit us up at info@therubpr.com for details.

When Photoshopping Gets Out of Control

With the rise of 4K and HD being used, it seems that photoshopping has gotten out of control. Sure, studios make the covers look great and know when to say when, but the real issue is with the performers who show up on set looking nothing like their agency photos. In the past, studios would have sent you home. But, time is money, and they just won’t hire you again. This is why many talent agenices demand non-photoshopped photos for their sites.

Of course, everyone does some sort of photoshopping or editing of their photos, especially for social media posts. But, how far is too far? When you’re literally shaving your nose in half would be an extreme example. Making your stomach completely flat when it’s not, covering it up with cinchers, and/or literally making yourself look one-third of your size are other examples.

When your fans go to meet you at trade shows and you look nothing like your photos, this is another issue. No one wants to be deceived, especially when you’re selling merchandise that really doesn’t look like you. We suggest you learn to love your body and embrace it. If you want to opt for plastic surgery and it makes you feel better, go for it. Even heading to the gym to do sit-ups and squats to make your tummy or backside look better is great. But, don’t be deceptive by photoshopping images of yourself so much that they don’t even look like you is something completely different.

Think before you use that Photoshop app or program. The competition may be fierce but looking nothing like your pics will decrease your chances of consistently working and disappoint your fans. Long and fruitful careers are based on your work and the love and support of your fans.
