Eden Link - connecting the community and the manufacturers!

Victoria Victoria
Eden Link. So, you’ve heard the name mentioned and you kinda know that we have a free new service that brings together the community and manufacturers. But what is it really and how does it work?

We know that customers have changed in the last decade – people want more information, they want to read reviews, they want news, they want open communication, they want to put a face to the companies that make these products, they want answers. Now.

And ya know what? We want all of those things too.

We had many meetings about these needs, these areas that are neglected, the lack of a platform that benefits both sides and brings them together. Where the community can learn more about the companies and directly communicate with them; and the companies can connect with the community, gets loads of feedback and build relationships. We think a better informed customer and a better informed industry is win-win!

It sounds so ideal, I know. It took a lot of work to make sure that Eden Link is an equal platform for big and small companies alike. Fair to all, able to be used by all – and made to be best when used often…in the hopes of continuing contact between the community and the makers - keeping news and communication current.

With much help, feedback and support from Metis and the Tantus family, we launched with the Tantus profile on Eden Link. We built the system, invited them to be the first and Tantus got all their info set up, employee profiles created and it came to life. This readied us for letting everyone know about this free new service.

We officially launched Eden Link at the industry shows in mid-July. The reception was overwhelmingly positive and everyone said yes. The manufacturers want to talk to you! They want to know what you’re thinking, what they need to do differently, what you’d like to see them make next.

Want to see who works for Tantus, read about what new products they are releasing and catch up on the Tantus reviews? Check out their page here.

Or maybe you wanna see a new lube company that we're not even carrying *yet*...check out Dr. Love's Eden Link profile here.

Want to know what California Exotics is up to? Read their announcements, reviews and discover their team on Eden Link at this link.

Want the latest from Evolved? Keep yourself in the loop with their Eden Link page announcements, products and reviews by clicking here! Never miss out on any of the buzz again!

Even *we* have an Eden Link profile! Check us out at this link. We’re not a manufacturer right now, but we do sponsor reviews and we want you to see our team!

To see all of the companies at once and catch up on the stream of recent activity, just click the Eden Link tab on any of the tab bars throughout the website, or click ‘Makers Portal’ on the homepage. And information from the manufacturers disseminates throughout our website – so you’ll see latest news from Eden Link on our homepage, info on the product pages from the manufacturer, and links when a review is sponsored.

Did you know that you can ask questions of anyone on the Team of any company? You can even start related forum threads about any company! And it all shows up on their profile page - in their public event stream. Transparency = awesome!

Companies can sponsor reviews which means free toys for the reviewers; even toys that have not been released yet! What better way to get feedback than to have the products reviewed, right?

We're so happy to have the early adopters to help us see how well the service will work and give us feedback for the second release. We're expecting many many more manufacturers who are excited to get started!

We want you to use this service – engage the manufacturers, ask questions, give feedback, rate the lure of any new products they upload, read their announcements and respond to them. Your voice is going to be heard!

This a new way of connecting – communication you can count on, transparency you can trust.

I plan on announcing on this thread and on Twitter as each new company profile goes live.

Put a call out to other companies to join. Which companies do you want to know more about? Who would you like to see using Eden Link?

For now, a link to our profile is not in the list under the Eden Link tab. You can find it by clicking on the link 'Visit Eden's Profile Page' on the homepage, under 'Eden Community'.

Okay I love the fact that is called the Turtle. That is one my favorite words to say. Not quite sure why but . . . . anyway. The toys look very interesting plus I love the name Papaya Toys. It just sounds like fun and romance on a south pacific beach.
