Make Money With MySpace

This article was written by in Uncategorized. 10 comments.

I’ve mentioned previously my disdain for the social networking monster that is MySpace, but it turns out that it’s not just for kiddies and awful bands anymore. According to CNN, Some entrepreneurs are using MySpace to market their small businesses, and those who tailor their business to the MySpace clientelle are succeeding.

I am starting a new project this week that I believe has great potential, and MySpace will be one avenue I think is perfect for marketing the idea.

The CNN article warns that the owner of MySpace, Rupert Murdoch and his News Corp, are looking for new ways to monetize MySpace which may end up making the site less inviting for small business owners.

Any progress with your two projects? Any word on what they are?

I’ve launched the first and I’ve got three others on my team. Only two of the four of us have had a chance to work on it, but it’s going to grow.

The second is the bigger project that’s going to involve some programming. Now that an earlier project is going smoothly, I’ll probably get this one of the ground this month.

I am familiar with some services that will market to the segments of myspace clientele via the add a friend feature. What other ways are there to extract legitimate profile information and market to these individuals on a worthwhile basis. Some of my research shows short term gains but nothing that is sustainable and cost effective.

any ideas on how to find the golden nuggets for the long term?
