Best Ways To Market Your Site Using MySpace

Discussion in 'Social Networks' started by scuba, Oct 4, 2006.

    Just wondering what you guys think are the best ways to market a site on MySpace. I would think that if done right, you could acquire a lot of traffic and members this way. I'm also trying to figure out how to turn traffic into members and would love some advice on this.

    First of all you have to think of the majority of people who are using MySpace and what there interests are. Then to market MySpace you would need to:

    Keep an up to date blog (people can then link to your website)
    Use Bulletins in the correct way
    Use the message boards
    Make as many friends as possible
    Start your own group
    Join other groups
    Advertise your Myspace site in other forums, articles etc.

    If you spend 15 minutes researching the poeple who started it, you will quickly find their roots are in spam indeed.

    Oh! no i didn't know it before. :s:


    I think there is very little difference between white marketing and black marketing (aka spam).
    All kinds of marketers are getting interested in using myspace as marketing tool instead of social nework only.

    Some other social networks are far more productive for some niches than MySpace is ;)
    People seem fixated with it though

    It's all about ad space in the end so I guess you're right in that regard.

    Well, my site is fogpog.com. You can talk about anything here and it is free to everyone, so I would think it would appeal to everyone, including the myspace demographic. What do you guys think, and how does my site look?

    Yes, since it's pretty general. Make a profile, add lots of friends, and consider adding it to the site in my sig (it's designed exactly for situations like yours ;) )
