Extending Your Store’s Social Reach and including Support Options

The Smarketplace is powered by new content posted inside Vendor Hubs inside Land Surveyors United.  The publishing power of a Hub, a sub community of the larger global network, basically empowers your brand to have it’s own “News” station about what vendors sell, service and support.  Our virtual mall stores drive traffic directly to the products that are on showcase.

Of course it is great to have over  20k surveyors to engage inside the community, encouraging them to follow your Marketplace Hub.  There are also many ways that you can get the most out of your Smarketplace Mall Presence and even dramatically increase your reach outside of Land Surveyors United Community..

Every Marketplace Hub inside Land Surveyors United is not only like a sub-community dedicated to a brand, it is also like its own mini-news station about said brand.  Every Marketplace Hub has the following Types of Pages:

  • Forum
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Blog
  • Articles
  • Events
  • Podcasts
  • Social Channels

Although all of them may not be turned on until you enable them, when they are turned on and set to visible by Everyone (Public) they each generate an RSS feed.   This means anytime you post ANYTHING inside any of these pages, a new item will be syndicated out like news to everywhere the feed has been embedded or programmed to receive those new items.  For our purposes, such a place is a Vendor’s Smarketplace Store Page.  This accomplishes several things at once.   1) Anytime you post to your Hub, a new update will show up inside your Store driving traffic back to your original post and helping you gain followers on your Hub.  2) Those hubs which are updated the most frequently with the best content (Pay close attention to the titles you use for posts), will not only get the most exposure from the community, it will also signal to search engines that their spiders should return and crawl more often...which basically means, the more you post, they higher chance you will have being the most frequently crawled Store inside the Mall.


And then there is the mega-boost that you can give to your content’s reach by configuring those RSS feeds to do other things and go other places everytime you post.
