Second Life Store
Anyone can open a Second Life store. The Second Life virtual world has made it possible for creative and business minded users to own and operate their own boutique, salon, mall or more in the virtual realm.
The first step to becoming a productive member of the Second Life economy and opening a Second Life shop is to get a Second Life account. This is easily accomplished by filling out their online form, creating a user name and password, and choosing a basic avatar.
Your basic avatar will be your online representation of yourself. Experts encourage you to design and customize your basic avatar carefully as it will represent you and your business. First impressions count in the virtual world, too. If you are opening a traditional Second Life you will benefit from a realistic avatar. If your business is more creative you can use more fantasy elements when designing your basic avatar.
You must also choose between 2 types of Second Life membership. The basic membership is free. They also offer a paid membership – the Second Life Premium membership.
The advantages to having a premium membership are many. As a business owner you can also own land with a premium membership. You can buy a 512 sqm parcel without paying any monthly land use fee. This will save you big bucks and keep you having to rent space from another user. For bigger land parcels monthly tier fees are applied.
When it comes to the stores in Second Life you are only limited by your creativity. Many stores focus on fashion. Have you always dreamed of being a fashion designer? Create your line and sell it from your own Second Life store. Other users who want to dress their avatars will flock to your business.
Any business that does well in the real world will most likely do well in Second Life. Since the virtual Second Life world closely mimics the real world users have need for many different items and services like apparel, avatar accessories, gadgets, vehicles, advertising design, animation scripting (Linden Scripting Language), marketing services, custom-made events and much more.
One of the most popular businesses in Second Life are the bars and clubs. Users enjoy hanging out, hearing music, dancing and chatting with each other in these entertainment venues. And who owns the bars and clubs? Other users just like you.
Remember, the Second Life economy is based on the Linden dollar which is exchangeable for real life dollars. This makes owning a Second Life store a real money making project.
