Providing awesome support
We think good customer service is the cornerstone of a good experience and something we are always striving to provide for Tryst. Just like the sex work community as a whole, our support team come from a wide range of backgrounds with a significant majority of them being current or former workers themselves. This ensures that moderation, policy, and product decisions about Tryst are made with and by people who understand what it is like to be swept aside and ignored by the services we rely on.
The team were so stoked to see this exchange on Twitter praising their often unseen from the outside efforts recently so we thought we'd talk a little about things we do to try and make it easier for our team to support you.
Even if you have never emailed us, you've interacted with at least some part of the team before! Every time you upload a new photo, or when a new profile is created, it's the support team there helping out. Need help recovering your account? The team are absolute pros at helping you regain control! The last few months have seen many of our internal tools updated to help the team answer your questions quickly and with as much valuable information as possible.
