General vs Moderate vs Adult Land Store Location

Recommended Posts

Does the land rating have much of an effect on people who can visit your in-world store?

if your store is on adult land, will this have a negative impact on sales as you would lose potential customers who are unable to visit the store?

Whats your experience?

no experience, but yes, rating can effect the choice of visitors, if you sell moderate or general creations, it's not wise to go to a adult location.

We started off on a moderate sim but we sell a lot more adult stuff now, so the move to a homestead and giving it an adult rating was a no brainer after some dumbinant leashed his 2 naked slaves to the steps at the store entrance. 🙄 Plus if you need adult words in your land description, moderate land filter dropped them.

But can it limit the people who can visit? does having an adult seem prevent a large amount of residents from visiting?

no, only the type of land, not the rating, can make a difference:

homesteads max 25 people
mainland sims 40 people max (linden homes 55 if i'm not wrong, and very few like meeting areas 60 ? )
private sims 100 peope max
of course 100 high RCI people on your sim will kill everything in a radius of 25 miles

I have only ever had 22 max on the homestead that I know of and that was for a special party event.

If your land is adult you those that do not have adult status (kids that didn't cheat when signing up) will not be able to visit.

I am reading that as your question, but may be wrong :D.     Unless there is a REASON to have adult land settings, most stores go for moderate.    It depends of course on what you are selling and who you believe your clientele is!

I do not advise, since your profile is definitely not an adult. Or it would be better defined, sexual. There are people who do not, even though they are of legal age. When I visit a place that is in sexual lands (adult), I never zoom, or I go out to see something on the street. I do not care at all. And I believe there are more people who think like me. There is also a price issue ... from what I see are more expensive land ...

It would physically prevent those under the age of 18 RL from visiting (anyone that actually told LL they are under 18) and it would also prevent anyone that has chosen to not have Adult selected as an option in their Preferences for content access.  As to how many people have chosen to unselect Adult for access - well, your guess is as good as mine.  Then there are others that maybe have the Adult content access selected, but still mostly avoid Adult locations - those people might or might not visit.

I probably should have given more info. I'm looking to rent land on the commercial Azure sims with all the roads separating plots so I can put display models of my skyboxes and prefabs. Most of their land is Adult and I didn't know if that would stop a lot of potential customers going there to view the demos. Based on jewels answer probably not. I'm guessing most people who buy skyboxes and prefabs are adults anyway. And they would go there from a marketplace link so that would mean they wouldn't know what taking re land was until they get there anyway.

   Not all who are 18+ in RL 'have' (want) access to Adult sims. If you're selling stuff that aren't A-rated, go for a Moderate sim - it shouldn't be difficult to find Moderate land for commercial use. If 'dumbinants' show up with plugged slaves on leashes, that's their responsibility and their offence, not yours.

Completing ... as LittleMe Jewell said ... myself, I do not leave marked "adult" content neither in the world nor in the marketplace.

Wait? Did I miss something? AFAIK minors won't be able to visit Moderate rated regions either -  they are restricted to General rated regions. The only possible consumer base gain would be adult users that did not activate Adult rated content.

That would include a lot of the RL adult users that are in SL as child avatars.  Many of them do keep the Adult setting unchecked/unselected, but there might be a lot of potential skybox and prefab customers among them.

You'd be surprised. I have a friend who sells furniture and stuff: he sells "Full Adult" versions and "PG-Only" versions and the price difference isn't that much. He says he sells a "helluva lot" more PG-only versions than he anticipated, almost a quarter (and that's by choice, not limitation, I suspect.) Price-difference a deciding factor? Possibly, but unlikely. Anyway, just saying the *smart move* is to know your target market, because that rating bit could possibly limit your exposure.
