How to Make Money with MySpace

There is a widespread belief that MySpace is just a place for friends. But that’s not true since many internet marketers use huge web traffic and made by MySpace to increase their sales. This way of marketing is really simple and can be learned by everyone.

But before you can begin making money with MySpace, you should know that according to MySpace Terms of Agreement, you can’t do commercial activities on MySpace. But it seems that as long as your activities don’t look like spam, your MySpace account doesn’t get banned..

Follow these steps to learn how you can make money with MySpace:

Step 1: Choose your product

You don’t need to have your own stuff to promote on MySpace. Instead, you can join affiliate programs. These programs allow you to advertise and sell products of other people, and each time someone buys something through your affiliate links, you earn a percentage of the profit. Search Google and you’ll find many affiliate programs for every kind of products. But digital products are much easier to sell on the web, such as ebooks, software, DVDs, etc. So if you are new to affiliate programs, you’d better select digital products, which can be easily found on Clickbank.

Step 2: Create a profile

Forget all your old profiles on MySpace and create a new one without your real personal information. You want your profile to look as attractive as possible so that you can make more friends later. It seems that profiles of young ladies with hot photos are very popular on MySpace. Although this may give you some idea about how to make your profile, remember that users can easily identify fake profiles. So make your profile look real as well.

Use videos, images, and blogs to draw more attention to your profile. Try different MySpace layouts and select the one that suits your taste and is pleasing to look at.

Step 3: Make friends

Making friends on MySpace is very simple: browse MySpace profiles and once you want to add a user to your friend’s list, just click the “Add Friend” button on his/her profile. After accepting your request, that member will be added to your friends.

Making friends in this way may seem slow and tedious. That’s why you should use some tools to accelerate this process. MySpace Trains and Bots are some of these tools which help you add hundreds of friends per day.

Step 4: Promote your products

Now you are ready to promote your products. Posting comments is the best way to communicate on MySpace. With some programs like FriendAdder, you can send comments to all of your friends at once.

But remember that since most people don’t come to MySpace to buy something, your comments shouldn’t seem like advertisements. It should seem like you are trying to help and offer important information to your friends. You could also make up some interesting stories about using some useful products. This way, users are more likely to follow your affiliate links.

Although it’s great to use some graphics in your comments, don’t clutter your comments with them. And don’t use flash graphics either, because comments with flash objects need members’ approval, and since those objects might have viruses, users usually don’t take the risk to open your comments and simply delete them.

Bulletins also used to be useful for marketing on MySpace, but with the huge amount of bulletins sent out to users these days, it seems that nobody pays attention to them anymore.

Remember that in order to be successful, you’ll need to try various kinds of products and services, and see which of them will give you the best results. This way you can realize which niche is right for you to market in.
