Myspace can work for you!

Despite the negative reputation that myspace has (I wrote a little rant about that whole thing in my Rants In My Pants blog) it's a great tool to network and promote your business!

I made a myspace page for my cafepress store, you can see it here. The first thing you need to do is go to myspace and create a page for your business and/or products. If you already have a personal myspace page then you can add some of your friends to your new business page. You can make your own little comment graphics that include information on your business and/or a link to your store and leave them as comments on your friends' pages for others to see.

There are thousands of groups on myspace. Do a search for groups pertaining to your products. Once you join the group you can become active within the group by joining discussions and adding other members in the group to your friends list.

Once you have a decent sized friends list you can begin sending out bulletins. Bulletins are sent to everyone on your friends list. You can announce new products or sales you are running. The possibilities are endless on myspace!

Thanks for the tip, I have a myspace but it seemed so useless to me, and I was always getting spammed, but I will try your way and see:)

yeah, the spammers can be a problem but they are working on a way to weed them all out so they aren't such a nuisance!
