2014 PROMO: Promotion from Virtual Worlds. Summary

Promotion: from virtual worlds.  Summary  
How to promote your virtual world project, inworld and on the web.
Yeah.  From virtual worlds.  Not just in.  Oh, I'll add a few instructions about the old unreliables, notices, notecards, landmarks, group IMs, and personal conferences (friend spamming).     
But that's just for old times sake.  Use those methods and you are competing with everyone else in Second Life for the audience already in the world.  
And I will add a bit about using MySL to promote your events.  That is mostly to people inworld, but people in the outworld can get to it, so you can show your friends and relatives what you do in Second Life.  
But most of what I will summarize here will be about how to use big world social media (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+, and blogs) to promote to the world outside the SL Viewer.   That's where the people are.  That's where the money is.
