I was highly disappointed with this event. There was no advertising like they said there would be. I did run into alot of freezing and products not loading properly as well, i spent most the whole day since 8am est in my room and only had 3 ppl besides family stop in! I truly hope next time, they follow through with there end of advertising, but i wont hold my breath...

Well its almost 5am and just finished visiting what i think are most of the rooms listed for todays even (im dead, lol)

Congrats so much to all the devs that submitted rooms, ive seen some really outstanding works at furnishing and creating ad banners and racks. You guys are simply awesome.

Ive been so happy to meet many of the devs i admire and im friends with, loved sharing a few moments with you.

Im sad about what you said of the lack of advertisement... i know theres been a ton more rooms than last time so that would be difficult for all rooms to have people in, but i also understand it wouldnt have been fair to say no to some and yes to others... I also think a mass message wouldnt have hurt.

Anyways there just as last year , ive been taking picks and gonna be bringing up a photo album so you can see your stores and the other ones ^^ you can see a teaser in my photostream (not all stores are in there as some had people wearing ap items): http://www.imvu.com/members/gaf210/

I'll be in my showroom tomorrow and I will leave it open but I doubt I will do this next year. I could have went out and enjoyed the unseasonably warm (77) day instead of sitting alone in my room all day Sad

Oh well, I did get a lot of studying done while I was sitting there at least. Really am disappointed in the lack of advertising for this event. I know with that many rooms it would be hard to fill them all, but with virtually no advertising, it is all but impossible (as today proves for many of us).

Your photos are so amazing, Gaf! Such a talented guy! And what a pleasure it was to see you, again! (Even if you did drink all the hot chocolate, lolol) Loving getting to see all the photos as I didn't get the chance to visit many other shops.

~ IMVU - PLEASE -- If we get the chance to do this next year, PLEASE do a much better job of advertising the event well in advance and the day of, PLEASE! ~

I was really disappointed on how the small business saturday was handled. I was very excited about it from the posts of the ones who participated last year. In my mind I envisioned a message in my inbox saying click here for a list of devs participating in our small business saturday, but there wasn't one. There was a lack of advertising, most people didn't even know it was going on, because honestly how many people even know about the community event calendar. Nobody I mentioned it to had any idea it was going on. I had hoped to make some sales to raise money for my Gamer's for Gifts organization to help make Christmas better for needy children. Here's hoping the IMVU community will be generous.

Agreed. I'll write the message for them:

"Support your favorite developers for Small Business Saturday! They can't wait to meet you. Find their rooms here: [link]."

This ain't rocket science. It feels like there's no follow through on a lot of IMVU's "promotions" lately, and I find it baffling. People have put a tremendous amount of effort and hard work into this, expecting some kind of support from IMVU. It's very disappointing. Sad


Agreed. Everyone I told had no clue what I was referring to. I was hoping there was going to be a big turnout, due to all the hype in this forum, but no. Only 20 people.

Hi everyone, thanks for participating! I will take your feedback about sending a message on the day of the event back to the team for next year. We used all of our normal promotional outlets for this event (bluebars, pop-ups, social media, an announcement message, etc.), but I'd love to hear more of your thoughts on how we can improve. You can post here or send me a direct message. Thank you!

I don't know what popups on the site were used. I was online all day and I don't know about anyone else..but I never once saw any popups...ANYWHERE. Blue bar..yes.. facebook ad..yes.. other then that, there was nothing on the this site besides this forums thread to indicate ANYTHING was going on Saturday. The very LEAST that should have been done was a rotating ad, like those used to advertise the latest promo bundle and imvu sales that show up on everyone's web inbox landing page. The ad could have linked to the forums thread and the listing of all the public rooms that were part of the SBS.



Another option would have been a 1 day listing when you open the chatrooms tab..that came up with all the rooms participating in the SBS, instead of it coming up with the "most popular or highest rated" chatrooms.

There..you have 2 suggestions..the first of which, should have been the #1 way this day was promoted..but was conveniently overlooked by imvu.
