How many times during the previous two election cycle did you hear the phrase “Main Street”? It was used when referring to the difference between ‘us’ and ‘them’, the everyday American citizen trying to make a buck vs. the Wall Street corporate conglomerates and high net-worth brokers.
During the past 8 months, MainStreet.us has been in development. We have been attempting to create a place where everyone can have a presence at MainStreet. Built using the latest WordPressMU CMS, Simple:Press forum and MarketPress store plugins the site will allow users to register in the community and create whatever they like.
Would you like a store on MainStreet? Have a desire to get your Photography site or personal blog off the ground? MainStreet.us will allow users to create their own sub-domain (example: MyNiche.MainStreet.us) and make use of any of the 140 premium templates and plugins to create a unique site with a relevant long tail domain.
Readers of this blog are primarily interested in valuable web realestate, this is a call to those individuals with an amazing opportunity to snatch up a premium subdomain for yourself. WordPress.com, Blogger.com, etc are good communities with many thousands of individual sites with subdomains. But all the good ones are gone! Imagine if you were able to create a site at politics.mainstreet.us for instance and place some decent content there. The next election cycle, 35-50% of the candidates mention main street in their speech and the searches start rolling in. What better fit for a relevant site to the content than Politics/Main Street/US! This is one of many examples, the possibilities are truly endless.
During the initial Beta phase, users will not be able to register. If you are interested, MainStreet.us is looking for a starter class to begin using the community. In Exchange, MainStreet.us will provide a free Premium subdomain of your choosing and access to all paid plugins, features and themes.
All you have to do is pick your keyword, build your site/store, market it and watch the visitors come in.
If you are interested in being a part of the initial class and getting the free features, please contact us at matt at mainstreet dot us and put MainStreet Beta in the subject heading!
