Myspace Marketing How to Use Comments and Bulletins to Grow Your Business

May 26, 2008
Using Myspace comments and bulletins can be an easy and fun way to keep in touch and build relationships with your myspace network. This article will describe how you can use Myspace comments and bulletins to do just that.

Myspace Comments:

Comments are a great way to stay in touch with your friends. You can send text comments or you can look around the web and find beautiful pictures to send to your friends as a comment. When people receive a comment it shows up on the control panel of their myspace. They will go look at the comment and most likely they will click on your page to see who you are and possibly to comment back to you. This becomes another chance for them to get to know you better.

When I send out comments I also set the intention that they will be received by exactly the person that needs them on that day, another fun LOA game. I can't tell you how many messages I have received from people who were truly touched by a comment I sent. By sending out warm wishes and good thoughts I have touched others. In return they visit my page and I again have the opportunity to let them know more about me. Maybe that will be the day they will see something on my page that moves them to ask me more about it.

You will receive birthday reminders for people in your network. It's a great idea to send people birthday comments. I know how great I felt when I had comment upon comment wishing me happy birthday this year.

The last thing I want to mention about comments is this: they stay on the person's page indefinitely. Everyone gets to see your comments. So this is where it is appropriate to end your comment with one short link to a website. If you use your keywords as your anchor text you will have a powerful backlink from a site with a page rank of 8 which is really goo. By doing this you provide a quality feel good comment, and then you get a quick link. Not only will the person you sent the comment to appreciate your comment, but anyone who stops by their page will as well. Now you are not only getting exposure to your network, but the entire network of your network. This is often times where people will find you and request you to be their friend. Which adds to your network.

Myspace Bulletins:

This is the area I use the least, but it can be very powerful.

When you gather a group of friends you are allowed to send them 'bulletins' because they are part of your network. You can write whatever you want in your bulletin, and you can use html coding in them as well. When a new bulletin is posted it will appear, to everyone in your friends list, on the left hand side toward the bottom of the page in the bulletin section. People can click on the title and then read your bulletin.

I'm sure it goes without saying, but DO NOT make bulletins about your business. Although I suppose if you were running a special and wanted to let people know, that would probably be appropriate. Myspace is really cracking down on spam. Just about anything that comes to your page now has an option to mark as spam. It is really easy for people to report spam, which leads to deletion of your account.

Just keep in mind that you want to provide people with quality. You might send some pictures of a new baby/dog/flower garden, or maybe your favorite quote. Those are some of my favorites. Just make sure you have a catchy title so people will be moved to click on it. Each time someone clicks on your bulletin they will also have an option to click on your picture which takes them to your page to learn more about you.

The reason I don't use bulletins as much as I could is this: they move really fast. If you have a large network with people that bulletin a lot your bulletin will move down the list very quickly. However, you can see all the bulletins you have received by clicking on the bulletin button. I'm not sure how many people really read the bulletins, I know I don't unless something in the top 10 catches my eye.

However, if you want to get an instant message out to your network bulletins are a quick and easy way to do that.

As you can see, using myspace comments and bulletins can be an easy and fun way to connect with your myspace friends. It continues to be another way to form relationships with people which in turn may develop into partnerships. If you continue to post comments in the hopes of making people feel good, you will also get something for yourself. All those backlinks from Myspace will help your SEO.
