    Promoting Your Business on MySpace

    The question of whether or not MySpace can be used to promote a business is certainly debatable. MySpace is intended to be a non-commercial website by nature but there is a different between blatant commercialization and mentioning a product or service you offer and providing a link as a useful resource to visitors of your website. This article will take a look at the opportunities to promote a business on MySpace by providing information on determining whether or not your method of business promotion is permitted on MySpace and information on how to promote your business without being accused of spamming MySpace.

    Review the Terms of Service Carefully

    The terms of service provided by MySpace can provide the greatest insight into whether or not there are ways to promote your business through MySpace. Members of MySpace are asked to review the terms of service before becoming a member. Each member should carefully read through this entire agreement to come to a better understanding of which types of activities are allowed on MySpace as well as which types of activities are prohibited.

    One of the stipulations of the MySpace reads as follows, ?Non-commercial Use by Members. The MySpace Services are for the personal use of Members only and may not be used in connection with any commercial endeavors except those that are specifically endorsed or approved by MySpace.com. Illegal and/or unauthorized use of the MySpace Services, including collecting usernames and/or email addresses of Members by electronic or other means for the purpose of sending unsolicited email or unauthorized framing of or linking to the MySpace Website is prohibited. Commercial advertisements, affiliate links, and other forms of solicitation may be removed from Member profiles without notice and may result in termination of Membership privileges. Appropriate legal action will be taken for any illegal or unauthorized use of the MySpace Services.?

    This section of the terms of service stipulates that MySpace is created for non-commercial use unless Myspace.com has approved the use of a member?s website for commercial purposes. Therefore care should be taken when designing a MySpace website to ensure the website will not be deemed to be a commercial website by MySpace administrators.

    When In Doubt, Ask Questions

    Those who are unsure of whether or not their MySpace website, as they have designed it, will be considered a commercial website should consult with MySpace administrators. This step is not necessary unless the member is concerned their content will be perceived as being commercial. Reviewing the terms of use agreement can provide a great deal of information but some users may still be concerned with the possibility that their website will be penalized if the administrators deem it to be commercial in nature.

    Contacting MySpace is a fairly simple process. Members can use the, ?Contact MySpace? link from the MySpace.com homepage. The contact page enables members to select a subject and a subtopic and submit this information. Once this is done MySpace provides some preliminary information which may be relevant. If this information is not useful to the member they can email a detailed request to MySpace.


    If you determine there is an opportunity for you to promote your business through MySpace, care should be taken to ensure the promotion does not cross the line into spam. Spamming is taken very seriously by the MySpace administrators and it may result in links or content being deleted or the privileges of membership may be revoked when a member is found to be guilty of spamming.

    Links to your ecommerce website integrated into your MySpace website isn?t considered spamming. Depending on how it is used it may not even be considered advertising, and therefore prohibited, by MySpace administrators. H

    Most promotion on MySpace is against the TOS, but MySpace is known for it's inability to stop spam, let alone promotion.

    myspace is 'trying' to stop it. email verfication for accounts now makes it somewhat harder to automate account creation. if they wanted to totally stop 'legal' fast spamming then they should just put a captcha on every friend request, message, comment, and everything else.

    of course there is still the phising stuff that people I'm sure the people doing that are going to get busted some day.

    they have recently put captchas on invites...messages are next, im sure.

    also, be careful about marketing too agressively on myspace. they arent shy with C&D's or lawsuits.

    I use the Myspace Cash Machine and it's a great guide to using Myspace to promote your adsense website or affiliate links. They have a free report to get you started.

    I guess, we've got to promote lesser "aggressively" on myspace. Rather than big red headlines that sounds salesy, we use headlines which sound more like news.

    Whatever it is, we just gotta test. Open a few "dummy" accounts to test, in case anything goes wrong, the main account will still be intact.

    seems to be a lot of spam on this forum.... myspacemarketingpro your site doesnt even work.

    anyway on the topic at hand, myspace is getting played out but im sure promoting for traffic still works well but that is entirely dependant on the niche of site you are promoting.

    i get over 30k a day from myspace resource sites, but other arcade and viral video type sites i have dont seem to do as well from my myspace promotions...

    It's just the natural cycle of how a system evolves. Once something gets popular, you get lots of attention, traffic and inevitably spammers. They can go ahead and implement capcha code, and other similar measures to tighten the process, but it will always be a race between the site owner and the marketers/spammers. People will always figure out a way to bypass the lastest security measure.
