MySpace & Building your business

It is important to find ways to get your website out in front of people. Not everyone will be interested in whatever it is that you have to offer, but the more people that go to your site, the better response rate you will have. Not rocket science now is it?

MySpace is definitely one way of getting lots of people to know about you and what you are doing. You can find long lost friends and family, make new friends, find people in your area, or with interests similar to yours. There are endless possibilities. My suggestion to you is this...people are more likely to be interested in you as a person, not the business you are in. That being said...

  1. Build your MySpace page around who you are..what are you interested in? (Besides building your business...)
  2. If you try using the same story on your page as everyone else in your business is using, I will tell you right now, you are not fooling anyone. It most likely has been seen a million times over and personally, when I see the first line, I just move on.
  3. Essentially the best prospect anyone could ever have is someone that they already know. We trust people we know to give us the honest truth, right? Same thing applies here. Even if I have never actually met the person, I can tell who is being honestly sincere and who is just trying to get me to buy their products or join their team.
  4. Don't accept friend requests from every person that sends them to you. There could be benefits to having a large list of friends, but I don't want to be constantly bombarded with advertisements and such from people trying to get me to join them, etc. If someone sends me a request, and tells me why, then I am more likely to accept, if their page is about them more so than their biz opp.
  5. Put a link to your website on your page or a banner, whatever method you use, just don't overdo it with too many advertisements.

Overall, think of how you would feel, put your shoes in that of your prospects. What would interest you or catch your attention? Do you like to constantly have ads thrown in your face?

And last but not least...instead of trying to do things fast and easy, take your time and do it right. If you put the effort into it people will notice and you will get a much better response as a result.

You can visit my myspace page at www.myspace.com/cberney80 (And for anyone who thinks that they can't do it because they don't know how and it will take to long or it is too hard to learn...I had no idea what I was doing when I first started. I don't think it turned out so bad either.)

Hi. Just got some questions regarding your view on MySpace and connecting it to buissness:

"MySpace is definitely one way of getting lots of people to know about you and what you are doing. "

I'm just wondering what the purpose of this is? Is it to promote whatever you're doing with your business or to create accessible information about the people behind the business? What I'm asking is basicly: How can a business earn money by using myspace? Is it really a platform where you want to create a brand/business identity?

Or is it just easy way to connect with new and old friends?

Hi Martin,
I guess I should have worded it a bit differently.
MySpace is in ways, a class of it's own. I didn't care for it so much when I first started using it. However, it has it's own benefits if used correctly.
It is a really great way to connect with old and new friends, like you mentioned. It is just another resource of getting your website out there and letting people see what your doing and who you are. In Network Marketing, people don't typically join a company because of the products, they join because of the person presenting it. You find like minded individuals and they find you. Your bound to meet a few great business partners along the way.
Hope that helps clarify a bit!

All my best,
Crystal

As an avid Myspace user, I will say that although business type people may think otherwise, people who create myspace pages for the sole purpose of advertising their business opportunity are a lost cause. Myspace users dont want to see adverstisments. I know I dont, the great about myspace, is it allows you to connect to all the people you have ever met in the past and have them accessible should you ever need to contact them. Just my two cents...

JT,

I completely agree with you. I don't like ads popping up all over no matter what site I am on. That's part of the reason you don't see a whole lot of Ads on my blog. I am more interested in getting my point across, rather than making money with my blog. I want people who are looking to make money from home to find me and rather request the information directly, not through the use of only ads.
Thanks for your comment!
