So this morning I sat down to do my tour of sales in SecondLife and recalled a conversation I had with a friend. I love to go on hunts. The main reason I go is because it allows me a chance to see stores I haven't been to for a while or haven't ever seen. I thin hunts are a great way to find new places. In a conversation with my friend....he stated hunts were bad for designers because people came, grabbed the free hunt prize, and left never having purchased anything or had intent to come back. I can totally see how it would be bad for designers. I really do.....but I thought, wow....do all those hunters "I came, I got free, I ran!" do they all just cam for the prize and tp out without even taking a look around?
It concerned me a little, because I always want to be a bonus to a designer I like. I want them to know I enjoy their designs enough to actually buy them and I do! I buy so much stuff! But, I am not going to lie, I love little things like...FaMESHed, The Dressing Room, Fifty Linden Fridays, etc....because they are one stop shops for me. I get to see new things and grab an updated LM to mainstores....and get a good deal.
So...what do you think? Are hunts and bargain weekends a bad or good thing? I'd love to hear what some designers think!!! ALL COMMENTS WELCOME!!!!
In the meantime, enjoy the oldie bug goodie outfit for the day!!!
