See Things Differently
I got word yesterday about a new service called SoManyMP3s.com. They claim to significantly boost daily plays and friends. The immediate question was, do they do it ‘legitimately’ since the last thing any one wants is a deleted profile. However, they claim it is completely within the MySpace T&C’s and they don’t use clone players, automation or Friend Bots.
For $19.99 they guarantee up to 1,000 plays and, although not guaranteed, up to 400+ friends. For a whacking $700 you get 105,000+ plays and 10,000+ friends.
It’s obviously questionable how effective random friends are, so even what appears to be high numbers must be weighed up against the actual value to the artist. Most labels are sceptical about friend numbers in the tens of thousands – it’s only when you move in to the hundreds of thousands that people start to believe it isn’t all self-hype.
However, number of plays and friends are such a vital part of building an artist profile now that anything that works, and saves time, is definitely worth investigating.
An artist we know is signed up so we’ll report back how effective it has been, but word so far is positive. They also have an interesting analysis of MySpace worth reading.
