Get More Fans, Gigs And Get A Record Deal By Promoting Your Music Plays And More Profile Views

Mar 17, 2008
Myspace is the perfect way to keep up with old friends and to share information, photos, and anything else you wish to share. Myspace suits a variety of people leading a variety of lifestyles ensuring that no one will be left behind.

One of Myspace's strong suits seems to be in specialty areas and one of the features that draw users to its homepage. Film makers, writers, and especially musicians all find that they have a place on Myspace.

Many of us already have a personal Myspace page where we keep in contact with friends and family. For the musician either new or established, Myspace offers a well-spring of possibilities when it comes to socializing and getting in touch with fans and peers. As a social networking site,

Myspace is extremely popular, with nearly anyone who has an access to a computer and an internet connection. With such an audience, anyone who has something to offer can do so with a decent chance of gaining fans.

For musicians Myspace has a section devoted especially for the musician or band complete with forums, a directory, and pages that are devoted to bands, and solo artists. Anyone with a band to promote and a sound to get out there can create their own page as a way to interact and communicate with fans and friends. These pages offer the same amenities offered by the standard Myspace page along with the ability to upload and embed songs.

The number of times these songs are played is tallied each day by song and then an overall play count is calculated. These play counts will become an object of obsession as another feature, the Myspace music charts rely on these counts to gauge who is popular. These charts are an important indicator of trends and are used by Myspace users to see who is popular, who is on their way in and who is on their way out.

Music executives even use these charts as a way of finding those musicians who may have that much lusted after quality of being the next big thing. Many musicians, usually the ones who do not take their career seriously, are content to let their play counts rise without aiding or helping the numbers. In addition to using Myspace, use proven service and tools that have developed to aid musicians who want to climb to the top of the charts.

Other features of the page that can be found alongside with the song player are blogs, pictures, and the ability to post anything you desire, all of which should be used to let fans and passerby get to know you and your band. One should advertise upcoming shows and new songs through the bulletins, sell merchandise on the page itself, and communicate with your peers using blogs and messages to help gain popularity.

The forums for musicians allow those of similar genres to exchange information, ideas, and thoughts, and for those of other genres to explore differing methods. There is even a section to advertise upcoming shows and a classified section.

The benefits of Myspace are countless and if used to the fullest potential will aid the musician in all future endeavors. Using everything provided such as blogs, forums, Myspace profile graphics and promotional tools will help take your career and your dreams to the next level.
