I love the explanation this author wrote about Second Life in his article about Cisco Systems, "Second Life is a tool for holding three-dimensional visual conversations. Just as WebEx allows you to share PowerPoints over the Internet, Second Life allows you to build something you can look at from all angles, with multiple people who can discuss the object in realtime."

Well, here we go with the Numbers! I hate to say that the naysayers are losing ground in my mind about the second life active members debate!

37545 NEW members in 24 hours. I am told I am wrong and if you count the correct 24 hours it is a record day of over 40,000 new members. So for all the naysayers that say it is only 10% of the numbers posted, that is still 4000 NEW members in a Day!!! Wow that is 120,000 in a month, or 1,440,000 in a year!!! And that is if the 10% is accurate, what if it is 20%!!!

Second Life MLM?

Permalink 05/07/07 22:35, by admin, Categories: Second Life and MLM Software, Buying or Selling Objects in Second Life

Link: http://www.internetnetnextstep.com

Well it was bound to happen.

An MLM Company has added a product package to support Second Life. You can't keep something this hot in a box for long when it can benefit MLM and the business community at large so much.

It looks a little bit rough right now, but pretty cool idea. I am guessing it will come together over a little time.

Their whole point is to support MLM distributors and Small or Medium business owners to build their own businesses with the use of their promotional items and know how. They must see what I see!

What has happened is this existing MLM company has added in a product package that benefits any company, or person in MLM that wants to get involved with a presence in Second Life.

They also have all their own products like FREE BlackBerry Certificates and FREE XM Radio offers along with travel incentives.

You can check it out see if it can save you some money or time in setting up your own Second Life Presence at:

Now the numbers!

55 Hours since our last blog entry and 69,508 new residents! So lets see, that is 30,220 per day!!

The growth astounds me every time. The opportunity to be a part of the next rendition of the internet is simply exciting.

We are going wild with ideas on how to help the business community at large stake their claim in this wilderness called Second Life.

Second Life Impossible to Profit with this GAME!

Permalink 05/05/07 15:25, by admin, Categories: INS Second Life Play by Play

Link: http://www.internetnetnextstep.com

Today I wanted to spend a little time to speak on the negative articles about Second Life and how impossible it is to make a profit from the "game".

First let's take a look at the numbers

Total Residents: 6,106,416
Logged In Last 60 Days: 1,624,434
Online Now: 39,258
US$ Spent Last 24h: $1,557,173
LindeX Activity Last 24h: $226,344

That is 30,196 more than Yesterdays blog entry. Yet even so, I hear the word "Game" a lot. Second Life is not a Game, it is Big Business.

Not able to profit? I disagree, I think the people writing such articles are missing the whole point of what Profit means.

People seem to be hung up on making money selling clothes, land, advertising, and things in Second Life. This is a whole lot of fun for sure, and there are a few making Real Millions of dollars doing it, but again, while fun for person to do in their spare time, not really a focus for a Corporation.

IBM has made a substantial investment into Second life and has been heard to say it has over 200 employees actively involved in world. They even simulated the wimbleton tennis in world so you could watch the real action in the virtual world! Incredible.

They have also been rumoured to be looking to add the bringing of corporate clients into Second Life as a new division.

If you run the numbers on how major an impact this could have, the time is now to get involved.

I digress, lets get back to profit!

I see profit as something that being involved with Second Life can help your company with, not directly by earning Linden Dollars in world by sitting on park benches, but in attracting a whole new audience to your products and services in a relaxed and entertaining way.

I see profit mostly coming from Second Life by combining Second Life with real life. By saving money on 1-800 support lines, by making support available in Second Life where it is more fun to wait around for live help. By making information available in world that is more fun to explore than a simple webpage, therefore gets people spending more time educating themselves about what it is you do.

I see profit coming from the ability to collaborate with business associates from far away all in one place, with a little more personality than a conference call or a web conference.

I see profit coming from selling your out of world goods, to the In world residents of
Second Life.

I see many ways to profit, far and beyond just simply making some Linden Dollars in world.

Combine the best of Second Life with the best of Real Life and there is a staggering potential for profit.

The funny part about it is, this is what I was preaching 10 years ago when everyone was setting up websites that ONLY did E-commerce thinking they were going to get rich. I was saying, you needed to take good offline business and combine it with good online business to see the real potential. Man, here we go again, Second Life is like a website on Steroids.

There is a lot to think about and strategize to effectively roll out a worthy second life presence. We can help.

To get an idea of some things already being done in Second Life just think of this...

Dell currently allows you to order custom computers within Second Life. INS is working on making shopping cart interfaces from within Second Life to our Affiliate and MLM Software. This enables our clients to tap into real world income from Second Life Residents.

Imagine creating a help desk in Second Life. Instead of Muzak, your customers can go mill about in this cool virtual world, learning more about you while they wait to have their quesitons answered.

Lacoste had a virtual Modelling contest within Second Life to build its brand. Of course they connected it into their real world website for maximum benefit. It created an amazing buzz.

Simply being able to refer to your Second Life presence and knowledge can make you stand out from your competitors who haven't yet embraced this virtual paradise. On the flip side it can make you look like a dinasour if your competitors are doing it first!

You really owe it to yourself as a person and your company as an employee or executive to start getting up to speed on the value of Mega Inhabited Virtual worlds like Second Life.

Second Life Continues to Grow Could economic impact be $10 Million a Day?

Permalink 05/04/07 14:14, by admin, Categories: Second Life and MLM Software, Appearance in Second Life

Link: http://www.internetnetnextstep.com

Second Life New Resident Numbers continue to astound me. today I am adding to it the actual economic numbers for those who think this is not business but rather a game.

First of all in 26 hours 29,003 new residents have become part of Second Life. Just a little piece of their spending would be good enough, but how about the true money being spent IN Second Life.

Total Residents: 6,076,220
Logged In Last 60 Days: 1,719,462
Online Now: 34,622
US$ Spent Last 24h: $1,601,506
LindeX Activity Last 24h: $232,363

$1,601,506 USD spent IN WORLD in the last 24 hours. I am guessing by our business model the full impact on the business community is at least 10 times that with OUT OF WORLD business generated from IN WORLD activities.

Is having a share in the land called Second Life worth it for a piece of $10,000,000 USD a day in economic activity?

We sure think it is.

We are committed to helping our current clients, and future clients capitalize on the phenomena called second life.

Imagine when customer support can be handled IN WORLD and people wait in queus full of fun and imformative things, rather than listening to MuZak on your phone lines? Save money? I think so, Add value to the client experience? Absolutely! More fun and Sticky?

I think you get the point. The upside is huge, the downside is miniscule.
