We like to think of advertising with SL-Inspiration as an exciting opportunity for you and your Second Life business, club, service or whatever you want to promote. Our aim is to put advertising and marketing on a professional level for all Second Life services and businesses and we have an array of innovative possibilities to make this happen.
We do much more than place your ad on our blog. We offer a number of unique options to help you to succeed. We are original because no one thinks like us, and so no one will offer you the same range of advertising and marketing tools that we can. Once valued clients begin advertising with SL-Inspiration we stay with them and support them all the way. Here is what we do:
- For 125×125 ratio sidebar ads:
(a) 30 days/1 month: 1,000
(b) 90 days/3 months: 2,500
(c) 180 days/6 months: 5,000
(d) 365 days/1 year: 10,000
- For 250×125 ratio sidebar ads:
(e) 30 days/1 month: 1,500
(f) 90 days/3 months: 4,000
(g) 180 days/6 months: 7,500
(h) 365 days/1 year: 12,500
Social MediaWe will follow you on the following social media sites, adding posts and images for you as well as liking, sharing and re-tweeting your content.
Extending Your ReachAs well as the above we also have other sites which we can utilise to extend your advertising range. These include:
SL-FeedsAdvertising on SL-Feeds works differently than the other sites. Instead of adding 125 X 125px ads on the sidebar we add a 300 X 400px image to the front page with a link to a post, blog, SLurl or a Marketplace store chosen by the advertiser. The picture added to the front page must NOT be an advertisement, but a quality image.
Also, provide us with a 500 word article and at least one image and we will create a unique blog post for you.
The cost of both the image and post is L$1000
The post will of course be submitted to relevant Facebook groups as well as Google+, Twitter and Pinterest (since an image will be included) to give maximum exposure.
If you prefer to just have a blog post added to SL-Feeds then this will cost $L200. You can of course submit as many posts as you like, but for SEO reasons only one will be published at a time. Staggering post submissions is the best option.
Banner AdsAs well as providing space on our blogs for your adverts we will also create a banner ad for you. We can create static ads as well as animated gif and animated html5 banner ads, which you will then be able to add to our sites, as well as to other blogs.
Please note: the cost of creating the banner ad does not include the cost of placing it on our sites.
Video AdvertsWe now also create video adverts. See this blog post for more details.
Featured Items From SponsorsThis kind of advert is for when you want to draw attention to a specific post on your blog. It works similarly to a 125 x 125 advert and is also placed in the sidebar. However. The proportions of each advert is 230 X 125 and links directly to a blog page rather than the blog homepage. There are examples on both the SL-Inspiration blog and the Metaverse Tutorials sites. The Monthly fee for this advert will be $L1,500.
We will be developing this feature very soon so that when you subscribe to advertise on one of our sites, other interested bloggers will also share your advert. Watch this space!
NewslettersAnother exciting feature we are developing is newsletters. Since Linden Labs increased the number of groups to over 40, many residents have turned off some group notifications. This is a big drawback for many group owners. One way around this however is to develop email newsletters. If you are interested in the idea of being able to send your group members, clients or patrons a newsletter, get in touch with me and we'll discuss your ideas.
This is an example of what a newsletter can look like. As you can see, it offers the opportunity to combine links to website information as well as in-world events and locations etc. A newsletter can also provide options for people to follow you on social media.
If you would like to advertise with us or have any questions you can contact us here. We look forward to hearing from you.
