Write reviews with the product in sight. It’s good to be able to pick it up, feel it, turn it if possible, and examine it to get ideas about what to write. It’s also much easier than plucking from memory the best/worst features of the toy, as well as the little nuances you may otherwise miss.
If unsure how to begin, I like to fill out the tags for each section of the Extended review. Always use the Extended version when writing reviews. Maybe after 50 reviews you’ll have it down pat and be able to completely write a review without the prompts, however for now it’s best to use Extended version.
The tags will help you think about the features of the toy and get you ready for writing about them. Also find other products which are similar, that you might recommend, whether or not you’ve tried them, and add 4 of them to the ‘similar product’ tab at the bottom. You’ll need the product code for this, found to the left of the product photo on the profile page of the product, or by clicking the ‘i’ for quick info in a search, in which case you’ll find it at the bottom of the product info.
It’s also helpful to read over other reviews, if any, on the same product. This way you get ideas on what not to repeat, what to add, and some inspiration on what to write.
