Tips for choosing and working with a solution provider
- Have a clear goal. Your goal should tie to your marketing or business objectives.
- Do you want to manage the project yourself, have in-house staff contribute, or outsource the entire project?
- Do you want consulting on your strategic goals, or assistance with marketing your project to the Second Life community?
- Decide if you need to contract a full-service company for your project, or if you’d prefer to manage the project and hire consultants for specific tasks.
- Conduct thorough research before selecting a Solution Provider to work with. In addition to obtaining and checking references, visit recent projects on the Second Life Grid to see if their style and approach is appropriate for you. Ask about metrics and results for previous projects.
