The LifePower Network is a vibrant, progressive community of real estate professionals. They desired a solution that enabled them to create a private “LinkedIn” type of social networking experience during the early states of the social phenomenon. We customized open source software to provide multi-level friend relationships, an online library of expert videos that consisted of free videos and others behind a paywall offered as part of membership packages with extensive options. This included the ability to take one or more real estate courses either for free or at a discounted price, depending upon your level of membership. Also included was a community forum, classifieds section, media and file repository and private real estate groups. This site provided the LifePower Network with the ability to engage in e-commerce, selling memberships and individual products.
