A Virtual World of Business and Marketing

We as people love new things. Since the dawn of the internet people have looked to enhance the virtual experiences of everyday people. There is a whole world out there, case in point being a virtual world called Second Life by Linden Labs. Second Life is just like real life, you can open a business, have families, get pregnant, own land, cars, and even buy gender specific genitalia. Second Life has its own currency called Linden Dollars that can be purchased, traded, and even cashed out. If you're thinking to yourself, 'how much could you actually make with a business in a virtual world?' Just ask Anshe Chung, SL's first real life millionaire made from virtual currency. SL's residents range from top notch business owners to socialites and trollers. Second Life even has a few bloggers that keeps us up on SL current events, fashion, music, shows, and everything we get from the news in real life. I have been playing Second Life since 2008 and I have personally had a plethora of experiences, my avatar name is Damali Enyo. At the end of the day you can be who you want with little to no judgement from your peers. However, engaging in 'bad girl' or 'bad boy' activity can get you severely verbally beat down. SL is like high school, there is a pecking order, especially in Urban SL. As a real life entrepenuer there is a whole gray area of marketing and business promotion that is being over looked. SL has over 2 million residents as of 2013, virtual business owners thrive even during a recession. Imagine if real world businesses began to use SL business owners with high patron traffic for advertisement? It would generally cost less and advertisements can reach people around the whole world. Don't think for one second that SL players are limited to the USA. Second Life has its ups and downs, but generally is a major stress reliever, most of us convene on SL Facebook pages when we're not inworld. SL also offers virtual iCandie so I am taking the liberty to introduce you to a few, from business owners to socialites, and the gorgeous people behind them.

"I love this game as a girl cose it's like an 2014 barbie dress up game where you can make your avatar super pretty and you can chat with cool people from all over the world, i played it for over 4 years now and it still keeps on getting me to log back in almoust everyday. I've made close friends & met some interesting people in & from this game and the fact that you can "date" somebody in the game i think it's neat I got a store in game too with lots of preety clothes & shoes for your avatar so you can look fabulous."

 Meghindo's is one of the more high fashion boutiques of SL with vast ranges of high couture avatar Apparel. If you want your avatar to look its absolute best, she is the person to see! She is very successful and also a super Romanian hottie! I believe she sets an extremely high bar with her avatar skins and can create the most beautiful avies anyone has ever seen.









My SL began somewhere around late 2007 and of course i didn't know what to expect. I thought of it as playing "The Sims" just with real people instead. I was wild and reckless in regards to everything i did. Over time i matured with my approach to SL as i've grown personally in real life. I've turned hobbies like making pics in Photoshop into making clothes and accessories for my business. The idea for my business which i started in early February 2013 stems from being on the grid for so long and seeing an abundance of clothing,skins.etc made particularly for women only. There was nothing to express my feelings, my liking, my background of growing up in Brooklyn. Not to knock other designers that do, but i do not overcharge for my clothing, in fact I've been told i sell for less than it's worth and that's cool too. My line is more about expression over monetary gain.
 Wise is one of the more successful business owners of Urban SL. If you need a great outfit to go with those Zone3 sneakers created by Banx Trill, OG Kush is the spot! He is not too successful to mingle with his patrons and answer any apparel related questions that may arise. He is also one of my dearest friends. Rise & Grind!
