#AskEden - First Video Review!

PolyLove PolyLove
I am going to be recording my first two video reviews tonight, and editing them over the weekend. I've read over the guidelines and have a mentor who isn't my mentor at the moment available any time I have questions, but I want some extra feed back. Not things like "good lighting," "speak up," or "compare the toy to common things." I want to know what you (reviewer or just a viewer) want to see in a video review! Since it is going to go on the page that everyone looks at I'm a little nervous (can you tell I'm rambling, lol). Anyway, please leave me a comment telling me what you would like to see in a video review!

PS- My first two are going to be on a traditional vibe and an oral lube. Also, if I wear lingerie for the review (I've already decided I'm not going to show my face, but being a girl I have to plan what I'm going to wear!) do I have to mark it as "Adult Content?" I don't think I am going to wear lingerie, but this would be a nice piece of info to store away for future reference.

If you aren't naked or engaging in sexual activity or simulating sexual activity, I don't think you have to label it "Adult Content." That's for erotic type video reviews.

The best advice I can give (and I used to do a lot of videos, but just don't have the time anymore) is to watch as many videos on Eden as you can. What do you like? What do you wish the person would do to show the toy better? Did the reviewer do something that made the review not worth watching?

For me, if it's a powered toy you have to turn it on and show us what it does (in your hand, or on the table, of course.) I used to use a bunch of bangle bracelets to show how powerful a toy was. I'd turn it on, and place it against the bracelets to show the movement.

And I cannot stress ENOUGH that you have to speak up!!!! I personally turn off videos where I can't hear the presenter speak. If you are in a situation where you can't do a video loudly enough to be heard, wait and do it when you have the time and the privacy. (That was actually one of the reasons I stopped, not only did I start working outside the home for a new agency, but my middle daughter was graduated from college, hadn't started Grad School yet and was home during the day, or working an erratic schedule. I couldn't do a video without her hearing, so I refused to make what I thought would be crappy "low talking" videos. Not being able to see, hear or witness the toy are my pet peeves in a video review.

Take your time, wear what you are comfortable in, know you will probably need to re-video it at least 3 or 4 times before you get it how you like it. Then watch it as if it wasn't you doing it. Do you like it? Did it showcase the toy well? Could you be heard and was the lighting good? (I know you said not to say this stuff, but it's one of the most common mistakes some video reviewers make.)

Have fun with it. Sit back and take a rest, edit it, then rest again and watch it again before you upload it.

Good luck!

Make sure you check out other videos on similar products for examples on tags, titles, and descriptions.

Keep an eye on the time, 3-4 minutes is ideal.

Make sure you watch it before you upload it.

Hope that helps!

I agree about watching other videos. That really helps me if I'm doing a video on something and get a little stuck. Think about what you'd want to tell someone about the toy if they asked you about it.

If you have things to compare it too, that would be really awesome too. I think I need to start doing more of that in my reviews.
