Becoming Well-Known on Eden

Your friend just told you about this cool new site where you can get free sex toys in exchange for genuine reviews. You log on to the site guns blazing—you’re ready to spill all your secrets, write your first review, and then no one comments on it. Building your rapport and community loyalty doesn’t come automatically. It takes a lot of hard work and time—but if you follow these five simple steps, you’ll find that working smarter can yield the same results.

Disclaimer: I’m not writing this post to you as an “Eden Rockstar” with a million followers, I’m writing this to you from the standpoint of someone who just started and identified new techniques to help build a following. Hopefully my learning moments can save you time and energy while you begin your journey through Eden.

I joined Eden about two months ago as a result of a friends referral. I remember logging on for the first time and wondering “okay, what now?” There are so many different avenues to take, and I didn’t know where to start. So I wrote. I wrote a review for a toy I had owned for years. It was short, to the point, with no pictures. DUD.

I quickly realized Eden shoppers crave personal experience--They want pictures, they love videos, and they want to connect with others. Since then, I have written 12 reviews, have a following of over 90 people, 6 videos, an article, and a whole lotta’ toys.

These were the steps I took to get there.

1. Write Meaningful Reviews

The first step to making an imprint in the community is to write thoughtful reviews with personal experiences, and honest opinions. A review about a toy someone loved could be just as practical as one about a toy someone hated. Why? Because it helps the buyer make educated choices when spending their hard earned dollar!

Your review should at least contain 3-5 facts about the item that a consumer could not identify just by looking at the toy online. Also, pictures sell! Just because there are pictures of the toy online, it doesn’t mean the manufacturer captured it at the same angle you did!

With lingerie, try to take photos of how it appears on your body type (if the material is sheer and you feel uncomfortable taking a picture, wear something underneath). Sharing your measurements is also a must when writing a terrific review. The consumer wants to feel already acquainted before buying the toy—which is why a great reviewer, reviews with their five senses!


2. Join The Mentor Program

The mentor program is an incredible resource for those just starting their reviewing career on Eden. It’s an opportunity for self-development, and more so than that, community involvement. Every mentor on Eden Fantasys has to reach a certain level of involvement on the site, before being able to share their expertise with mentees. So when you join the program, you know the quality of knowledge you’ll receive will be unparalleled!

The mentors also have an established rapport with members of the community. This is beneficial because they will push you to try new things, and will share your successes with their followers as well. This will propel you forward at a very quick rate.

3. Share Your Thoughts in the Forums

The forums are an incredible place to learn, share, and connect with other members of the community on Eden Fantasys. There’s something for everyone—and it’s up to you to find what you like. When you post in the forums, not only are you connecting with people and sharing your personal opinions, but you’re also putting your name out there and developing a following. This will also elevate your reviewer rating, and will open up a whole new world of ideas, relationships and strengthen your knowledge base.

4. Ask Lots of Questions
When I started, the first thing I did was follow all the top reviewers on the site. I went to their reviews, read up on the comments, identified what made them stand out, and sent tons of emails out with questions—and I mean tons. In all honesty, I still do.

Asking questions and soliciting feedback can be immensely beneficial when trying to elevate your rating and strengthen your reviews. If you get used to doing this early on, you will make less mistakes in the future!

One of my biggest learns from asking questions, was the value of making videos—mind you, my videos are far from perfect, but I find they’re a great way to add value to your written review and share more of yourself with your readers and followers!


5. Be Genuine

When you’re being endorsed for writing a review, sometimes you feel it’s not as important to share your opinion if it’s negative. Just don’t forget, that if you thought or felt something, somebody else probably thought or felt the same thing too. When you’re writing reviews or sharing your personal thoughts or beliefs with others, be sensitive to the way your words can be perceived, but don’t let that get in the way of you being genuine with your audience.

The reason people come back to read your work is because they trust and value what you have to say. So if your review sounds like everyone else’s, or doesn’t bring added value to the table, you’re not being genuine—‘cause your experience will never be the exact same as somebody else.

Most of us are here to learn and grow—And hopefully we’re educating others along the way. So to everyone here who’s just joining or starting their journey through Eden-- Reach out, ask questions, and be yourself-- This will catapult you forward in the community, and furthermore, in everything you do.

I open up the rest of this post to be used for comments and personal experiences with growing your following on Eden Fantasys. If you’ve experienced challenges, or found any tips that work well, feel free to post in the comments section.

@Skeeter I submitted this as an article, but it got declined because the content is about Eden, and not just a topic about sex

My advice is to be honest. Write honest reviews on products that you are familiar with. Getting free products is a perk at Eden but you must earn it. Go into the mentor program for help with the review program. Read other reviews and comment on them. Most importantly, do not take negative votes personally. Instead, compare your review to others and see where you can improve. This is a friendly community, so a person who truly has a passion about sex toys, porn, lingerie, or sensual items, should be able to put in enough effort to excel. Also, being a valued member does not always result in a really high ranking. You will see some of the oldest members with rankings a little lower. This is because everyone is involved in the community a little differently. If you want a top ranking than go for it, but do not stress out about it if you are truly doing your very best. Finally, this is a sex positive site, so be open and understanding to others. With these tips and all the rest on this thread, you should be just fine.
