2016 PROMO: HG: Promoting the Hypergrid with Social Media. HGProjects

Promoting the Hypergrid with Social Media.  HGProjects
Probably the strongest reason why we need the HGProjects organization: To organize promotion of the Hypergrid.   

Firestorm promotion for Second Life

-
  • Hypergrid has satisfied customers
  • Hypergrid has communities that could make landing pages
  • But Second Life has one thing Hypergrid does not have.
  • Organization.  (OK. Maybe I exaggerate a bit.)

        What are Landing Pages?  

        In a web-based promotional campaign, a landing page is a web page designed as a target for a particular ad, ad theme, or hyperlinked phrase. Look at the terms at the top of this article.  Each term is hyperlinked to a landing page.  In turn, each landing page carries links to other pages with additional pages about the topic.  This arrangement is an element of SEO (search engine optimization)
        -
        If this blog were selling something, the landing page would feature an option to buy or a link to the next step in the buying process.  In the case of the opening Firestorm page, the landing pages may lead to a download Firestorm button and a special registration page.  

        The registration page might take you to a customized Welcome Center that fits your interests.

        The landing page topics mentioned by Firestorm

        Could Hypergrid use a similar promotion?

        Gimme a concrete example

        • Imagine a home and garden community, run by Dek O'Rater.
        • With a name like that, she can never get on Facebook.
        • But she has a G+ community, "Pimp Your Place."
        • And she has an Opensim place of the same name.
        • Dek also writes a blog on the same topic. 
        • The HGProjects organization announces its entry page plan.
        • It will maintain an HG entry page with general entry instructions
        • And a community index to help people find communities that fit them.
        • "To be on the index, submit your landing page."
        • Here are a couple of articles Dek could include:
        • Gardens and homes. The decorator story. How it could become a business.   
        • Building and real estate commercials? Are you as smart as a 6th grader?
        • Check back in a few weeks when we hear Ann Tree Prenyour say:
        • "Making a landing page is not work, it is an opportunity."
