Check your current level at your dashboard, or read on for tips on how to move on up!
Level 1: Enthusiast
So, you're an Enthusiast. It means you created an account – great, but now what? Want to go to a real level? Try adding your favorite products and creating your first Shopping Guide. And you don't have to be alone; you can also find someone to follow!
Level 2: Connoisseur
Two-shmoo! Being a Connoisseur is great and all, but if you keep writing recommendations and creating Shopping Guides, you can make your way to the next level. Why not invite some friends to join you in the race to the top? We bet you're pretty popular on Facebook...
Level 3: Trendsetter
You're setting trends left and right! But hey, if you've gotten this far, you know you want to keep heading onwards and upwards. Check out our leaderboard to see the top users. Learn from them – they know what they're doing!
Level 4: Aficionado
Ooh, Aficionado, how fancy are you?! Don't get too comfortable, though, because if you forget about us, we'll forget about you. So remember to keep up the good work, because you're almost there...
Level 5: Maven
As a Maven, you have the most followers, and your Shopping Guides and products are the most loved. You're a tagging, commenting, Shopping Guide-creating machine! Be careful not to lose your place in the spotlight, though – keep finding, adding and recommending great products, and introduce yourself to new members along the way.
