See Things Differently
I’m often asked by artistes what they need to do in order to get a MySpace. In what seems like a ‘Back To Basics’ post, here is an A.B.C. of how to do it.
Of course, having a site is the easy bit. Now you need to add friends, post blogs, news and events and employ widgets, embed video and sell your music using SnoCap or 7Digital.
A word of caution – a MySpace site is NOT a substitute for having your own website. Downsides are that MySpace can stop working – one of our artistes lost the function to add friends and MySpace were next to useless when we requested they fix it. Break any of their guidelines (even by accident) and your profile could be deleted. And your list of friends are not as good as having your own mailing list, which remains the number one essential marketing tool and one that is often forgotten when artistes think they can communicate via bulletins alone.
