Get Your Own Smarket Space inside Virtual Mall
We have officially opened up the Land Surveyor Marketplace, a collection of Hubs owned, controlled and branded by Vendors inside the community who sell equipment/software and developers. If you would like to have your own Vendor hub, check out this presentation to learn about all of the things which can be imported and displayed inside your hub such as a store, social media, youtube channels and much much more.
If you are tired of throwing your money away on banner ads or print advertising hoping for clicks or calls, this is the solution for you. We'll set up your Hub, brand it according to your website or preferences and import your social media profiles for you. All you need to do is be ready to learn something new, willing to answer questions about your products from customers and followers and share new deals and specials with the community a few times per month. Marketplace Hubs can also have a dedicated mobile app built for making shopping on the go much simpler for land surveyors in the field. Contact Justin with any questions you might have.
We are excited to add your company to our Smarketplace and look forward to hearing from you! Once your Vendor hub is set up we'll send you an email to follow the Hub. We'll then make you admin of the hub and you'll be able to completely control the backend and all of the pages inside the hub. Pretty cool huh!
What is a feed?
A "feed" is a summary of web content that is updated regularly to keep members informed of the latest changes to a page or listing. Land Surveyors United uses the Really Simple Syndication (RSS) 2.0 feed format. For example, if you subscribe to a Smarket store's feed, you'll receive automatic updates whenever a new listing appears in that Store.
Feeds help us make content more accessible, and they allow you to easily see new content. A summary or headline view lets you quickly scan recent content changes, and headlines are linked to appropriate content.
How to subscribe to a feed
To subscribe to a feed, you'll need an RSS reader. To subscribe, copy and paste the URL of a page into your reader, and follow the instructions provided for that reader.
Marketplace Hubs are places where content changes on a regular basis. To make it easy for you to see recent changes and updates in Smarketplace, you can view their content in as RSS feeds which update to at least 3 places, simultaneously.
Your new posts will be included inside a digest for members of Land Surveyors United who follow your Hub.
Your Post will be Viewable on your Smarket Page inside the Virtual Mall
Your Post will be mentioned on our Twitter/Facebook page
there are literally hundreds of other things we can do with your feeds. I've built magazines, newsletters, mobile apps, you name it from RSS feeds. Have an idea? Let me know
