What we provide: The power of marketing…via tweeting, Steamlander forums, blogging and events in Second Life ..to promote not only the magazine but our vendors and advertisers. It is the power of networking through a strong team of individuals who have the social networking presence to promote you and what you do. Our targeted audience is those in Second Life who are associated with the Steampunk themed/Steamlander sims; however, it is and will evolve to be much broader than that. With a focus on music, art and entertainment, fiction, non-fiction and poetry we hope to attract a large audience in and out of Second Life.
