        2018 WW: Homes and Gardens. A web-world use case

        Homes and Gardens.  A web-world use case
        Updated 2/18/2018
        For years people have been using virtual worlds to design homes and other buildings.  These are homes you (your avatar) can walk through, get pictures or videos in, put furniture in, and otherwise try in the draft stage.  The limiting factor has been the powerful computer and software installation needed to run the virtual worlds.  Now it is possible to  put a virtual house into a web-world that runs on a browser.  On a low-cost computer, Chromebook, or up-scale tablet.


        Is there much interest in homes and gardens?

        2018 BIZ: IMA: Creators: you are creating your brand; whether you attend to that is up to you

        Creators: you are creating your brand; 
        whether you attend to that is up to you
        Part of successful selling is creating and maintaining a brand valued by potential customers.  Content creators in virtual worlds may want to pay more attention to the brand they are creating, especially if they are interested in expanding their market.
        brand is a name, term, design, symbol, or other feature that distinguishes an organization or product from its rivals in the eyes of the customer.  Brands are used in businessmarketing, and advertising.  Wikipedeia

        What brands can do for sellers 

        • Increase attention to what you offer.
        • Build your reputation for quality and service.
        • Help you promote and provide after-market service.
        • Did the closure of Zangrid result in loss of items bought on Kitely Market?
        • Provide product differentiation (eg, after-market service).
        • Build a continuing connection with customers.
        • Justify (and get) a higher price for your products.
        • Deprecate the value of unauthorized copies.
