It’s bad enough that over the years I’ve been living, working and creating in Second Life that I’ve had to do continual battle with the often myopic Decision Makers at Linden Lab, but sometimes I wind up having to push hard against some unfathomable reticence from my fellow Residents.

There are always two basic perspectives when pricing a new product. They are variously known as “High Price/Low Volume” and the opposite “Low Price/High Volume”.

A fairly large number of Second Life® Residents are also sellers on the SL Marketplace®. They will take something they’ve built, made or scripted and place it for sale on the Marketplace. They will include product pictures, a description and various other bits of information about the product that will help potential customers make the decision to purchase.

An important but under-utilized part of the Product Listing is a field known as the “SLurl”. The purpose of the SLurl field is to direct potential customers to an in-world location where they can see the product “in the wild” … in other words, see it in-person and perhaps test it out for themselves. This is most often used for things like Structures, Furnishings, Landscaping, Decorations, Utility Devices; in short anything that really needs to be seen to be appreciated. By following the link in the SLurl field, the potential customer can gain a first-hand appreciation for the product and its unique qualities.

But at least you all get the benefit of our manic habits. In today’s post we announce a few more things happening with Virtual Landmarks, and some that just might interest you too.

We recently added a new product to the DG Products for Second Life line called “Virtual Landmarks for Virtual Worlds” or VLMVW. The power and flexibility of the VLMVW system provides a number of valuable advantages to Store Owners and Merchants that operate In-World Store locations. VLMs also have a number of advantages for those that run exhibits, events and any type of in-world function that depends on “Foot Traffic”. A full description of the VLMVW System is contained in our previous blog post “Time To Push Second Life Forward – Virtual Landmarks”.
