Made easy with 3D Templates

Everyone can get free 3D Websites using pre-built templates or create from scratch using WalkTheWeb. It is as simple as creating an account, selecting a 3D building and 3D Community Scene, and naming it!     Try it now:  https://www.WalkTheWeb.com

If you use WordPress and WooCommerce, WalkTheWeb has a plugin available in the WordPress Market that will pull your products into your 3D Store and connect to your existing shopping cart checkout. Search for "walktheweb" in plugins on your WordPress website or download it directly from WordPress: https://wordpress.org/plugins/walktheweb/

WalkTheWeb 3D Websites have a unique patented design that allows them to come in various types, the two main types are 3D Building Websites and 3D Community Websites (Scenes).

3D Building Websites are virtual representations of REAL businesses, organizations, online stores, museums, amusement parks, schools, houses, social media, entertainment, games, and so much more. 3D Stores, 3D Offices, 3D Schools, 3D Museums... are all examples of 3D Buildings. Anyone with a website on the Internet could also have a 3D Building Website! 3D Building Websites are stand-alone 3D Websites that can be placed into many 3D Communities. 

Easy Maintenance - The power of 3D Websites is that a 3D Building can be maintained in one place and yet visited in many 3D Community scenes.

Here are some sample 3D Building Websites you can visit:

NOTICE: We know it currently Lags, that is what we are raising money to fix and optimize for all browsers. When we optimize the 3D Websites for various devices and computers, performance will improve dramatically. It is all part of our commercialization process that we aim to complete for the 2019 holiday season, pending your support. 

3D Community Websites or 3D Community Scenes are a combination of 3D Buildings, Landscapes, terrains, roads, sidewalks, street signs, light posts, mountains, rivers, islands, trees, and other items that visually define a scene. The 3D Community is the map that defines the locations of 3D Buildings. Each 3D Community Scene is a separate 3D Website to visit.

Here are some sample 3D Community Websites you can visit:

NOTICE: We know it currently Lags, that is what we are raising money to fix and optimize for all browsers. When we optimize the 3D Websites for various devices and computers, performance will improve dramatically. It is all part of our commercialization process that we aim to complete for the 2019 holiday season, pending your support.  

When someone creates a 3D Website using the wizard, they get a 3D Building and a 3D Community Website.

Using the 3D CMS editor (3D Content Management System or Admin mode), 3D Website owners can customize their 3D Websites. This includes changing the design, textures, images, placement of objects, and adding additional 3D Buildings to their 3D communities. 

Product Displays

Product displays are designed to be versatile and fully functional. They are two-sided and can be resized, rotated, and colored to match any need. Once connected to an online store, the products will automatically load into the display. Optionally, a product display can be set to always show a particular product.

Mouse-over Descriptions

When a shopper moves their mouse over a product display image, the short description of the product will display. Mobile devices can click the image to read the full product description.

Read More Link

When a shopper clicks the image or sale price (becomes a Read More link when a shopper moves their mouse over it) the online store web page for the product is displayed in an iframe window on the page. Note that this is not a pop-up and it can optionally be set to open in a different browser tab instead.

Add To Cart

When a shopper clicks the Add to Cart button, the online store web page for the shopping cart opens with the product already added. The shopper can proceed to checkout or close the window to continue shopping.

Shopping Categories and Keyword Searches

Shoppers can select from any product category. Categories are automatically read from the original online store when the 3D Building is loaded. When a category is selected, product displays will update to show the items in that category. Using a 3D kiosk text entry, this same method is used to search for products by key word. 

If there are more product displays than products in that category, the product displays will repeat the products until all product displays show a product. 

Shopping Cart Check-out

Shoppers can click the View Shopping Cart link at the check-out register to open the online store check-out page. All purchases and transactions occur on the original online store page, which makes 3D purchases as secure as traditional online store purchases.

Various upgrades are Free when you back this campaign

WalkTheWeb then offers premium upgrades to Personalize, Secure, and Franchise your 3D Websites.

Personalize 

Free 3D Websites use a path like https://3D.WalkTheWeb.com/YourWebsiteName. 

If you choose to personalize the path, you can use your own existing domain name with 3D instead of www to signify it is a 3D Website. For example, http://3D.YourDomainName.com

Example of a Personalized path:

Secure

Personalized paths then have the option to add a SSL secure certificate to make the 3D Website HTTPS. For example, https://3D.YourDomainName.com

Examples of Secure Personalized path:

NOTICE: We know it currently Lags, that is what we are raising money to fix and optimize for all browsers. When we optimize the 3D Websites for various devices and computers, performance will improve dramatically. It is all part of our commercialization process that we aim to complete for the 2019 holiday season, pending your support.  

Franchise

3D Building Websites (3D Stores) have the option to be added to other 3D Community Scenes. It's like having your 3D Building added to many other 3D Websites. 

  • It is free to add Franchised 3D Buildings to your own 3D Community Scenes. 
  • Pay to Franchise and make your 3D Building available for others to add. 

Put your 3D Store into more 3D Communities for more traffic and more sales! 

The Power of Franchising

Imagine if there was only one McDonald's location. Would you know who they are? Not likely, unless you lived in the same local community.

McDonald's franchised into many communities to make their products available to more people, they received more foot traffic, brand recognition, and they have now sold billions of hamburgers!

Traditional Websites do not Franchise

The concept of a traditional website is to make one website and advertise, socialize, and pull as many people to the one website location as possible to get traffic for sales. We traditionally do this through banner ads, trading links, and search engine optimization (SEO).

How is that working out for you?

It doesn't make sense to franchise a traditional website. If you made a copy of your traditional website and brought it up under a different URL path, it would still look exactly like the original and everyone wouldn't care which path they found it under.

Franchising 3D Websites

WalkTheWeb 3D Buildings can be Franchised! Want more traffic to your products, business, cause, or services? First, create your 3D Building Website then Franchise! Franchising is like boosting your 3D Building with everything in it to many other 3D Communities. Your 3D Building can be the next McDonald's found in every 3D Community. The more 3D Communities, the more traffic, which leads to more sales! 

Here is how Franchising works... 

Let's say I have a Shoe Store. The idea is to add complimentary businesses to the 3D Community that would share traffic. For example, if I add a Socks Store, now people can come to my Shoes and Socks 3D Community to get both.

                             We add the traffic for the Shoes and Socks 3D Community

                              Shoe Store             1,000 page views a month

                              Socks Store           1,000 page views a month

                            -------------------------------------------------

                              Shoes and Socks 3D Community     2,000 page views a month

In addition, we save money and share advertising dollars by each advertising the Shoes and Socks 3D Community, which draws even more traffic leading to more sales! There is power in numbers and Shoppers love Malls! 3D Communities with Franchises are 3D Malls!

Franchising is Easy

3D Stores that want to Franchise can enable a Request a Franchise button. When someone sees a 3D Store that they would like to add to their own 3D Community, they just click the Request a Franchise button! 

Settings and Permissions

The 3D Store owners have full-control of Franchising their 3D Buildings; options include:

  •  Require My Permission to be added to a 3D Community
  •  Preview 3D Community and Location before approving (Lock Location)
  •  Allow until I run out of paid Franchises
  •  Allow All Requests, Require Approval after paid Franchises are used
  •  Allow All Requests, Bill me for additional Franchises after paid Franchises are used

3D Store Owner Can:

  •  Revoke a Franchise Location at any time
  •  Request changes to a particular Franchise Location 
  •  Expand the number of Franchises available

After Approval

Person requesting the Franchise will then be able to place and activate the 3D Store into their 3D Community Scene, visible for all to see. Watch your traffic grow!

Google Analytics

How will you know that you are getting more traffic? Each 3D Building (3D Store) and 3D Community can set a Google Analytics ID. WalkTheWeb will show a page view for every time the 3D Building or 3D Community is loaded from a distance, as well as up close. 

For 3D Websites you will be able to tell:

  • Each 3D Community that your 3D Building was visited.
  • 3D Building was viewed from a distance; visitor can see your 3D Building.
  • 3D Building was viewed up close; visitor entered the 3D Building.
  • 3D Community was viewed from a distance; scene was partially loaded.
  • 3D Community was viewed up close; scene was fully loaded. 

WalkTheWeb works on modern day browsers just like traditional websites so it natively supports computers, tablets, smart phones, and can optionally be used with virtual reality devices and headgear.

Warning: quick techno talk - WalkTheWeb uses HTML 5, CSS 3, JavaScript, canvas, BabylonJS, and WebGL. Behind the scenes it uses MySQL and PHP.

In the early 1990's before Internet was wide-spread, I owned a small computer store. I was teaching beginning computer classes when I decided to start a Windows based bulletin board. Because of the ease of use and friendly interface, all of my customers loved it!

When users logged on they saw a road with a single building drawn above it. Each end of the street had a link that would scroll the page left or right, exposing the next building.

It was the best I could do with the technology at the time. The idea never left my brain. One day back in early 2011, I first started experimenting and learning about HTML 5 capabilities. I was amazed by the ability to animate images and create games. 

I woke in the middle of the night with my brain humming with ideas!

I could make the 3D Buildings individual websites! They would load as you walk closer and unload as you walk away! I pictured traveling from one 3D Community to another by train, walking in and out of 3D Shopping stores, visiting museums of reenactments, and walking from games to businesses all will continuous animation. I discovered 3D Browsing!

I have been working to make it a reality ever since.          ~ Dr. Aaron Dishno

Advisors

The Brink - The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for Innovation at University of San Diego offers world-class business consulting, and relevant and insightful guidance to growth-oriented, innovation-based entrepreneurs, who are running small businesses. SBDC focuses on providing support to businesses that have fewer than 500 employees, that are innovation focused and that are looking to impact not only economic growth but also prosperity for the region through the penta-bottom line approach (profit, people, planet, peace, prosperity). 

Urgency... Why now? 

San Bernardino County shooting and mother-in-law Maggie passing from ALS convinced me that life it too short to wait another minute. That was 2 years ago. I have no regrets! 

Clips of this video were used in the introduction video. Here is the complete interview with closed caption added.

Risks and challenges

Software always poses risk. There are exceptions to every rule, devices that do not confirm to standards, and many variations of operating systems and browser capabilities. While WalkTheWeb uses only existing HTML 5 standards and the leading HTML 3D Game Engine, it remains a fairly new industry. We expect growing pains. It is common at this stage to release monthly upgrades as well as bug fixes on demand.

For you technical folks: Although it can be hosted almost anywhere since it is PHP, JavaScript, and MySQL, WalkTheWeb is currently hosted on load balanced EC2 instances under Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The silver lining is that Dr. Aaron Dishno has over a decade of experience with high volume County websites and server farms with 99.999% uptime, redundant systems, backups, and 24x7 support. Our team knows how to quickly resolve and adapt to any problem that arises. We promise to be forward and truthful if anything does come up.
