Since I am just starting out my business I am looking to utilize any free advertising as possible so someone suggested setting up a Myspace page just for my business. I set my page up about 4 months ago and really didn't do much with it. Well that is all about to change.
I have my Myspace set up with Etsymini's for both of my shops so people can see a live feed of what is going on in my shop. Since I am apart of different groups, I have badges telling people I am a member of each group and a badge support etsy and handmade items. The page is a simple background without alot of flash to slow the page loading time down.
With that all set up, next on my list is friends. I have slowly added about 200 friends from etsy but I wanted to reach a wider group of people. So I joined the I love to crochet group and a parenting group. I am requesting about 25-30 of the group members as friends, which I get about 10-15 added a day. I go to the forums and commented and let people know I am around. I am at 360 friends now!
I am trying to comment on each person's myspace page about once every 2 weeks and let post bulletins about my shop or my blog a few times a day. I add new pictures of my items from my shops so that they gain more exposure. I usually get about 2 comments for every 5 pictures I upload.
I haven't gotten any sales from using Myspace yet but I am patiently waiting to see if all the hardwork pays off.
Do you use Myspace? Is it a success? Any tips?
