2016 HG: PROMO:Promoting a decorating service with Social Media. HGProject

Promoting a decorating service with Social Media.  HGProject
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.)   
***********************************
  • (More after the break)
  • Where is Arcadia?

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 content 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 may 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 promote 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."
  • OpenSimWorld has the index and could show links to landing pages. 

  • Here are articles Dek could include on her landing page as related:
  • 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 your landing page is not work, it is an opportunity."
