* Do not click through lots of reviews and rate them straight away. Dooyoo time how long you read a review for, if you open a 500 word review and rate it within 2 seconds then this is called speed rating. You need to read a review properly before rating in order to make a decision on what to rate it.* Don't copy. This is called plagiarism. Not only is against Dooyoo rules but it is also very selfish behavouir which can result in your account been banned. Make sure you post your own work only. If you include a quote in your review then list the source - simply write via from google/wiki next to the sentence you have copied.
Brilliant? Yes. It's an ingenious idea for both the site owners and the consumers to make money, aswell as the consumers unbiased opinions bein an enormous help to people in the position of making a desision whether to buy a certian product or not.Easy? At first i thought so. I randomly grabbed a handful of items and reviewed them to what i thought was of decent quality. Others didn't think so, and i became quite upset at one point soon after joining as i felt my reviews and writing skills were been patronised. I didn't give up, though! I wrote and wrote, building up my dooyoomiles as i went, and soon started revieving some more encouraging, positive comments, which made me feel great! I have now earnt seven crowns, which I am very proud of.
Dooyoomiles (the money!), in my opinion, are one of the main reasons people write. Ofcourse, many of us do it to relax and to get things off our chest, send out warnings of substandard products or simply want to tell everyone how great a product is and if it's worth a try. The whole site enables users to build up their skills and make money in the process, which i feel is brilliant. The money is a big motivation to write reviews the highest standard possible and develope communication skills; via reviews, the writer communicates to a wide audience; alot of dooyoo reviews come up in google search results so can literally be read by anyone who's interested in the product you've reviewed.Friends on the site are also a motivation because of there kind comments and encouragement; i've made a couple of friends that i talk to regulary on Facebook, and i feel if i were to never use dooyoo again i'd be letting them down!
The fact the website is nicely laid out, welcoming and simple to use is great too and it feels somewhat like a social networking website, which encourages me to log in to see if any of my Dooyoo member of trust friends have posted anything new that i can have a nose at!So far i've thoroughly enjoyed been a Dooyoo member and can't resist logging on atleast once a day. I find myself in the supermarket picking things up purely so i can review them! So far i'm proud to say i have made over £400, which is £400 i didn't have before it has helped greatly with my bills and a majority of it goes into my savings/car fund. Around £100 of this money I have cashed out in the form of Amazon vouchers, meaning I have treat myself to a few bits and bobs that I have been wanting from there for a while including an iPod dock, but i'm trying to save my vouchers up so that I can buy something of value such as a new TV or perhaps a new laptop.
Ofcourse there's downsides, such as the people who may post copied reviews/revenge rate/make offensive comments about mine or other peoples' reviews and/or spelling etc, but the positives outweigh this and the DooyooTeam seem quick to respond to any violations of the Dooyoo rules. Another downside is people who have say, 500 reviews with 10,000 rates, but haven't rated anyone elses reviews. In my opinion this isn't partipating in the whole concept of Dooyoo, but ofcourse it doesn't stop me from rating there review if it's of interest to me, as i enjoy reading reviews by other people who've had experiences with products i own/would like to own!Is Dooyoo better than Ciao? To be honest, I think they're both great - I can't choose which one I like most!
Overall, i'd say i'm more addicted to Dooyoo then any other site, including Youtube, eBay and Facebook! It's a great oppurtunity and keeps my mind busy even when i'm just sat on the laptop, and helps with my writing/spelling skills. I'd reccomend Dooyoo to anyone - whether you purely want to share your opinions, enhance your writing skills, want to make friends, or simply want to make a bit of extra money.Hope this helps :-)
