Helpful Advice for New Members
Advantages: tips for new users
I've been on this site for roughly a year and it has been a fun experience and I have learnt quite alot about this site. I thought it's about time I put together a review to share my input for newer members on how to get the best out of this site. The first this I'd like to mention before I go into my review is that Dooyoo is for original content only so copying someone else's review you found on the internet is a big no so it's pointless going down that road.
Tip 1. Have a look around before you get started.
The best way to get a feel of what this site is looking for is to see what everyone else is doing. Have a read of reviews in the area you plan on writing reviews and see what sort of things to include. By doing this you will start off on a high and write good reviews straight away and get good rates. The more helpful your reviews are the more people will trust your opinion and keep coming back to read your reviews. I didn't start off by looking around and just got straight into it and my first few reviews came out awful and were nowhere near the standards of this site.
Tip 2. Pretend your explaining the product to a friend.
When Writing a review the easiest way to describe what's right and wrong with the product is to imagine you are explaining to a friend. It is sometimes easier to write notes on a piece of paper so when you start writing the review you don't forget any key points that you want to include. For me it's always easier to write about products I like because I always discuss good products with my friends anyway so it's just like a similar sort of thing just written instead.
Tip 3. Be friendly and don't be afraid to ask for help.
The site is full of friendly people which I have come to notice. If you ever have a problem I'm sure that anyone on the site will be happy to help you if you send them a message. When I first started out there were a few people that helped me out with advice on reviews etc.
Tip 4. Revenge rating is not the answer.
You may write your heart and soul out to the best of your ability into a review but not everyone will give you the highest ratings. Everyone on this site has different opinions and different standards to how they expect a review to be and some may be higher and some may be lower. If you think you have write and amazing review and someone gives you a lower rating it's not because your haven't tried it may simply be the review just didn't give them the information they wanted or just wasn't for them. Some users like long reviews and some users like short reviews. Some users may ignore punctuation mistakes if the review gives enough information but then some users won't. If you get a bad rating the best thing to do is not get revenge and rate them low back just simply ask for advice from someone and improve for next time but don't let it dishearten you. That is how I have got by on this site is by getting advice.
Tip 5. Giving feedback
If you read a review and give a low rating you can eave a comment to to give constructive criticism to the writer. I personally like when people leave comments on my reviews so I can see what people think of my work. Try not to be harsh with comments if you think a review needs a redraft.
If you see reviews that are very good it's always nice to leave a nice comment to show the writer they have done a good job. Giving feedback is not vital but it's always to help people improve.
Tip 6. Write, read & rate
It's good coming on the site to share your views but if you want to earn more money it's a good thing if you read others work to. I have noticed the more work I read and rate the more people take time to look at my reviews to. In periods when I don't really read & rate alot of reviews my earnings always drop. I think the main reason for this is that the website pays more for actually getting rates than actually writing the review. Although you get a few miles for each review you publish if no one rates them then you miles will take longer to grow. Rating as much as possible is they key to more miles.
Tip 7. experience with products.
When your writing reviews write about products that you have alot of experience with because you will be able to analyse the product much better. The more opinion and experience you have to talk about the more your review will seem helpful. I tend to have been writing more and more movie reviews lately because I am a big movie fan and have fun whilst writing movie reviews.
Tip 8. Suggest products.
If you can't find products that you would like to review you can always suggest some. There is no point writing a half hearted review about something your not keen on because you can't find anything you would like to review. The evidence that you wasn't interested in reviewing the product will show in the review. Suggesting a product link can be found on your home page and doing this will also keep you in the mood to writing reviews.
My final tip and advice would be have fun whilst your here. This site is and opportunity to share your opinion, make friends and earn money all at once. The more you interact with users the more you will like being on the site. The last thing you want to do is make it feel like a chore so just hav
