Second Life Marketing Review
I was reading the Digital Media magazine that came with my B&T and noticed Hyro had setup a Second Life Recruitment Hub. So I have decided to provide you with a review of what I found.
Hyro’s Second Life Recruitment Hub Review
Firstly I am not a Second Life guru but would more place myself into the Noob demographic. I think this post might be quite interesting from the perspective of a marketer in some of the things to cover when marketing in Second Life. I struggled a bit trying to actually find the Hyro establishment. Its not listed on their press release where the actual coordinates of the Hyro Recruitment Hub were. I actually found where it was by reading a different Second Life blog.
(BTW The Hyro Second Life Recruitment Hub coordinates are as follows. You need to have your Second Life application open at the same time.)
So I really like whats inside the Hyro Recruitment Hub! Here is what’s listed in the index:
1. Theatre Block
Contruction site – Something thats still being built.
Theatre – This is a big theatre with lots of seats to sit down in. Quite nice. There is a big ad on the wall saying “Heavy Mobile TV. Coming Soon”. I might have to revist to see what thats all about?
2. Conference Centre
Recruitment Hub – This is the all famous place where you can submit your application. I couldnt figure out how to get the application onto my character. I consider myself to be fairly technically savvy but still a Second Life n00b so maybe there was a little trick to it. Perhaps, because none of the Hyro people were present they set it not to function?
The Space Station – This is a conference room with lots of seats and a table styled like a space station.
The Forest – This is a conference room with lots of seats and a table styled like a forrest. I didnt really bother going in here as it was the same as the other.
The Beach – This is a conference room with lots of seats and a table styled like a beach, I liked this one because of the lifesaver flags.
News & Awards – Some listings of the awards and recent news Hyro has received.
Web & Interactive – Some portfolio screenshots of work
Wireless & Mobile – Same as above.
Construction site – Something being built here.
A place to meet with tables and chairs where you could submit your application for a job again. Again I didnt figure out how to get my application form.
All and all an interesting experience and I learnt a bit about moving around in Second Life. Was super keen to get that application form but perhaps its just a bug they are fixing. I just went over to this castle near by and have found my first Second Life person to speak to. They are French so lets see how I go!
