I have been on the side of a club owner, and the side of just a dancer. Here are some things I noticed on each side to be mindful of.
1. Some of the so called most successful clubs on SL, really are only a success for those in upper management because they have their personal clients who really only care to see them.
2. Having too many dancers in a club at one time, will result in most of your dancers not getting tipped, or tipped very little due to the fact there are 6 dancers at one time and the average personal is not going to be willing to drop 1k or more on all 6 dancers.
3. Setting strip rates too high or too low.
4. It is usually a good idea to offer a small hourly incentive to dancers.
5. Mixing a voice club with dancers who voice and those who don't. In my opinion its best to have one or the other, because of the fact if you have 2 dancers on a stage and one voices and the other doesn't, the silent one is not going to make as much.
6. Having way too many themes and such going on in a short amount of time. Although it brings in patrons, you have to consider the fact a lot of your dancers may not have the RL money to constantly buy new clothes all the time before they get a chance to make anything. This one really is a balancing act.
7. You have to accept there will be dancers who have bad attitudes, as well as very insecure ones.
These are just some things I have noticed, and I am not saying these are 100% the case all the time, but these are just some things I think a club owner should be mindful of.
