To spam or not to spam.
This I know is a hot topic among all sl communities but bare with me.
What is spam? Why should I spam? How do I spam ?
SPAM:: in normal internet lingo spam reffers emails and messages recived with out want. In sl spam is used in a slightly more 'generous' manner. In sl spam is used as an interchangeable term for advertising.
advertising planning is cruscial to a successful buisness strategy.
Effective advertising is:
With those things in mind let's talk methods
Personal group (joes kitty cat group)
Pro: audience chose to receive your message
Con: limited exposure (only people who you have already met)
Subject specific group (kitty cat lovers group )
Pro: limited advertising means customers are more attentive
Con: exposure limited to only people who probably already have your product.
Mass spam group (100% sl spam)
Pro: exposure to people who may have never even heard if you product.
Con: limited exposure time. (Spams roll through so quickly you rarely have time

These might pay off or go horribly wrong.
Sometmes you have a good day and get allot if results.

Then still most days you'll only hear the proverbial crickets chirping.
My least favorite method . More times than not you'll only loose folks off your friends list and get yelled at by others.
If done right this one can really get results. If not no one will notice you until its too late.
Last but not least is
Good old fashion door knocking.
Iming people talking to them and just plane getting the face time
Pro : can be really effective
Con: seriously time consuming.
