[ Teleport Hub Group Gift Guidelines & Requirements ]
Why do we require merchants to offer a gift to our members? Your gift will be posted in our special section @ our front page. This will give you a lot of extra traffic. We want to get your name out there right away to our group members and readers. Everyone must contribute in order to use this group. We don’t and will never charge you any fee for using the group and our blogging service. Instead, you can get the traffic to your store; and you can enjoy the bigger group pool at the same time. Your marketing effort will be more effective with time under our group management. It is a win-win.
What are requirements for this exclusive group gift?
We don’t try to impose many rules on designers. However, there are many cases that some people try to exploit the system. Therefore, these simple rules will ensure the fairness.
- Teleport Hub group gift must be an exclusive gift for Teleport Hub. You can’t offer it (as a gift) at the same time to other groups, events, or your store. We recommend using a different mesh/design for Teleport Hub group gift in order to achieve the best outcome for our marketing effort. We don’t just post your gift and be done with it. Your gift will be advertised across the web, social networks, and inworld groups.

You cannot use a gift with a different brand name (not your store brand name) and offer it as Teleport Hub group gift. Your gift must be decent & usable. It must not contain any text or web url on top for the purpose of promoting a website or something else not related to your store/brand. (1) fashion related items: we are no longer accepting body painting clothes (applier only clothes) as group gift. Your gift needs to be mesh with/without appliers. However, we do accept tattoo products, make up appliers, and nail appliers. (2) furniture related items: we don’t accept a mesh 101 water well, poster, postcard, picture frame, rug, or anything flat with a texture on top. (3) pose and animations: single pose gift must contain at least 5 poses in the pack. Couple pose gift must contain at least 1 couple pose.

We recommend changing the gift per 1 or 2 months in order to take advantage of our blogging service. However, changing gift is completely optional. As long as you have a gift rezzed, you will be fine.
