What is Subscriber Kiosk?

Subscriber Kiosk is a virtual product for use in Second Life. It collects and stores a list of subscribers who want to receive periodic information from you, e.g. newsletters, special sales notices, new product announcements, event notifications, etc. It also enables you to send an IM and/or inventory items placed in the kiosk (e.g. notecards, gifts, demo items, product updates, etc.) to the full list of subscribers (or filtered subset) with a single button push.

Now it is no longer necessary to force your customers to join yet another chatter-prone group just to receive announcements, gifts, updates, IMs, or other items from you. Because of the 25 group limit, many potential customers won’t join your group because they would have to leave some other group to do so, or just don’t want to deal with the potential group IM spam. Subscriber Kiosk solves this problem by operating outside of the Second Life group system.

There are two types of kiosks – Masters and Remotes. A Master Kiosk stores the list of subscribers and is typically located in your main store or organization HQ. It can be used alone or in combination with Remote Kiosks. Multiple Remote Kiosks can be associated with a Master Kiosk and located in either the same or different regions from the master. Customers subscribing from Remote Kiosks will be automatically entered into the associated Master Kiosk subscriber list. Both types of kiosks are modifiable and copyable, so you can create as many of each as you need.
