So how do you make your money? Two ways, you can either work directly for a promotions company or literally buy the shots from the bartender and resell for a higher price (plus tips).
How much can you make? No matter which route you go you usually wind up making $100 - $400 a night. Assuming you have some sort of crowd.
How do you choose the outfits? If it’s a theme night you dress accordingly (Halloween, beach night, etc.) If you’re working for a promo company you usually have to dress in an outfit that features the liquor brand logo somewhere.
Why do most girls use the test tubes? Easier to hold, and you can fit more on a tray so you can make more cash per shot run.
How do you set the prices? Basically you're given suggestions, but at the end of the night it’s up to you. A slow night you'll probably have to lower prices. While if it’s a crowded night you could give group deals. Bachelor and bachelorette parties are usually good business.
Any advice for up and coming shot girls? Make sure your outfit has a couple pockets to keep lots of small bills for change. Be flirty, but not too aggressive.
