03/08/2012 Arriving at Sextoys HQ about an hour before my start time – I overestimated the journey to say the least – I was excited to start as the first public relations (pr) intern at sextoys.co.uk!
After a lovely little introduction from Monique and Emma, Emma took me down to the showroom to show off some stock! From sleek, exquisitely designed Lelo products, to their best selling Loving Joy goodies, sextoys.co.uk definitely has something for everyone. On the walk from the office, Emma opened the warehouse door to reveal 3000+ products!
This office is truly connected! They are totally on top of their social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, The Vibe blog and community) and are really in touch with their client base. It’s great to be able to be involved in this, because it gives you a lot of information about the company upfront, and getting to know the customers is a bonus!
As a starter task, I wrote a piece – ‘Introduce some ‘crazy’ into your relationship.’ combining current celebrity news with our products. I hadn’t used WordPress before, so it was good to get familiar with it!
I’ve since written a piece for the Sex News section of the blog, edited a few bits, and got a involved with the social sites.
At first, obviously I was a bit sceptical about writing about the products, (for example, the Nubbed Cock Cage) but after my first day, I’ve realised that it’s so much fun! It’s fantastic to adapt to this type of PR (I haven’t done trade before) and it’s a great environment to be in, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the internship.
