London’s Knightsbridge has been in Second Life since 2007. Many virtual businesses have sprung up in this London Sim. But they are not alone. They have been joined by real businesses who wanted to work and trade in virtual worlds. Businesses like: Ozone Conferencing, London Translations, Songpod, Linguabooks, Coldwell Banker, The Daily Mail and Workzmarter all looked to London in Second Life for their virtual presence. Virtually Linked Limited has provided these companies with their presence as well as various events they have presented to us. Ozone used to do regular Networking meetings for people across the world.
Now Workzmarter have joined in the idea of virtual worlds and real businesses. Through the sponsorship of Workzmarter, we will be holding TGIF meetings on Fridays. At these, you can network with other users of Second Life, share ideas and tips and learn from each other about Second Life and business around the world. You can get help with basics on how to run a business and be pointed to the right place to get reliable information.
Many people start their own business because they are good at ‘something’ and then find out that they need to be ‘good’ at so many other things that are not their core skills – accounting, VAT, payroll, marketing, HR, Health and Safety… the list is endless. The problem is many small businessmen and woman do not have the time to do all of these things and in the end the core business suffers because they can not find the time to do what they do best. This is where workzmarter.com can help you.
