Internet: More New Online LDS Businesses
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Several new websites this week are new LDS businesses,
trying to provide LDS products through the Internet. Faithful Moments, LDS
Temple Prints and The Mission Spot are all trying to sell LDS-oriented
goods, but the best of these three is LDS Temple Prints, a nicely organized
site profiling goods sold through a network of dealers.
Least useful is The Mission Spot, yet another site based on the web tools
available from Specialities Distribution Center - a fulfillment operation
whose good are already available on several websites. Even the basic pages
on The Mission Spot are identical to those found elsewhere.
Particularly interesting is LDS Box, because of its upcoming film festival,
which will showcase LDS-made short films and scripts.
