Aug 20, 2008
Are you one of the many businesses that have yet to discover the power of MySpace? If so, you could be missing on a an exciting opportunity to get your business noticed. Yes, MySpace is thought of us a "friend" type of network, however, it is also great for business networking and marketing your company or products.

First, let's tell you a little about MySpace. MySpace was created by one man - with the help of his team , of course. In 2003, Tom Anderson the president of MySpace, along with Chris DeWolfe and Brad Greenspan opened MySpace. In the beginning it was just as a social networking site, which it still is.

Though only 4 years old, MySpace has grown to having millions of account, 300 million to be exact and sees visitors in the millions each and every day. Now, when you think about this at a business standpoint, that is a lot of people that you could be marketing and sharing your products, services, and company to, each day. Millions of people, that is a great number. Does your business website alone see that kind of traffic? Likely not, therefore, it only makes sense to take advantage of the traffic that MySpace gets each day.

Now, let's have a look at some of the great ways MySpace can help your business:

1. Traffic - As mentioned, MySpace receives millions of hits each day, why not take your portion of those hits and turn it into a great avenue for your business.

2. Targeted Traffic - Traffic alone is good, but targeted traffic is even better. You can target the audience you want. This means you can target by age group, city, state, or even country. You can target by interests and many other things. This allows you to choose who you want to advertise to. If you want to advertise to your local area, simply target those that live in your town or surrounding towns. It is really that easy.

3. Rank Higher On Search Engines - MySpace and all its sub pages have great page ranking on Google. Now, if your MySpace profile has your business link on it, what does that mean for you? It means that a high ranking website is linking to your website, which can boost your page rank alone.

4. Network With Other Business Owners - You can network with other business owners, maybe in the same general niche as your own, and help each other out at the same time. Being on each other friends list is help alone, especially when those curious visitors start clicking on your friends list. On the other hand, maybe you can offer discounts to their visitors and vice versa.

Taking advantage of MySpace, means making the most of its features. MySpace offers many different features such as Bulletins, blogs, advertisements, groups, chat rooms, forums, and so much more. Taking advantage of the different features gives your business more exposure and more traffic. If you have not jumped on the MySpace bandwagon yet, now is the time to get started. Your business will thank you.
