Effectively Marketing On Myspace Without Spamming
So today I am going to move away from twitter and into the topic of myspace. First of all I want to settle the dispute, myspace is a much better platform for marketing then facebook is. I have asked countless people about this and I settled on this answer for a few reasons.
First of all myspace gives you a very customizable profile. This within itself can be used to market products and services (be very careful or you can get your account canceled for spam). It also gives you a place to introduce yourself to all the friends you don?t yet have. Unlike facebook, myspace is all about meeting people you don?t know and thats why I really believe its better for marketing.
People on facebook want to know you off of facebook before they add you to their facebook. Well if you already have their attention off facebook, why do you need facebook at all? Myspace is different. People you don?t know are more likely to request you as a friend even if they don?t know you just because you may have similar interests.
Myspace also gives you the lovely comment board. You can log into most peoples myspace pages and leave comments, pictures, and links to almost anywhere. Again be careful because myspace will cancel you for spamming comment boards. As if that?s not enough myspace also has bulletin boards. This allows yet another means of keeping in touch with friends and posting links to various places (ie your blog posts).
So for all these reasons and a few more I haven?t yet gotten into I prefer myspace. I keep warning you have to be careful with myspace because they will cancel accounts for spamming and I can?t stress that enough. There are however tips and tricks you can use to market with myspace that won?t get you in trouble.
Now please understand everything I am going to discuss here relies on the myspace marketing application called Myspace Friend Blaster Pro. Despite its name of friend blaster, this program is not just for adding friends but is a fully automated myspace marketing application. However if you are going to market, its always nice to have people to market towards!
Thats the first thing I am going to discuss. Building your friends list. The truth is its getting harder and harder to build your myspace friends list. So many people don?t want to add random strangers. There are a couple tricks to avoid this. First if you open up friend Blaster Pro and log into your account you should see the gather id?s screen. If thats not the screen your on, you want to be on it.
Next you want to goto the browser users page listed under the ?friends? menu on myspace. Type in any search criteria at all. Then click the checkbox for new to myspace and click enter. On the gather I?d page make sure the option ?gather id?s from all pages? is checked and the option full gather is checked. The click start. This should go through page by page adding profile id?s into the list.
After you have a few hundred ID?s click stop. Now you want to goto the ?friend requester? page. Click the option to send a short note with your friend request. In the note you want to type something similar to the following: ?Hi I found you searching profiles on myspace and saw you are somewhat new so I figured I send a request. Send me an email after you accept this I?d love to chat.?.
Now after you get your first few followers, do the above procedure to your friends friend lists and change the message to say something to the effect of ?Hi I keep seeing your name popup from myspace as us having friends in common so I figured I would send a friend request?. After your message is typed in just click send. Do make note to this You do not want to send more then 125 friend requests a day or myspace will flag your account as a spam account!.
After you have a friend following going its time to send out some auto messages. Now I want to stress this, your auto messages need to make you seem like a very real person. Do not advertise or market using this option. Instead send a message like ?Hi there just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for accepting me as a friend. I was wondering if you use any myspace game apps or want to chat sometime. Please feel free to drop me a line. Although my profile mentions I have a website I am not a spammer I am a real person?.
These types of messages get great responses. It tells the person in question you are real, and you have a website. Because you were so polite and friendly about it they may start a conversation with you AND check your site out!
This method also works for posting comments on myspace comment boards however you want to use links with comment boards. It works great for search results and gets a high amount of clicks. However you still have to be careful how you do it. This is where graphics come in great. Leave a graphic on each of your friends comment boards that says ?have a great day from your website name? and have it link to your website! This is FULLY acceptable. Also to avoid the bot detectors what you can do is send 25 comments on auto, then switch the message and do 25 more.
Now the last marketing feature of this great myspace marketing package is the auto bulletins. You can post a bulletin that all your friends can read and include links. This is a GREAT feature. You can use this to take a small piece of your latest blog post and have a ?read more? link in with it. Friend Blaster Pro also lets you set up a multiple amount of bulletins and send them out at various times. This means you can have your top blog posts rotating with ?read more of this at? links in each one. Its not spam because each post is different!
In case you have not already figured it out, I swear by this program. In fact I not only swear by it its also the only myspace marketing program I use and I believe its fully worth its weight in gold! This program within itself can increase your blog presence and your sales if you use it effectively.
