I can't stand multi-level-marketing 'businesses'. Why? Because the % of people who make money with them is worse than those who start their own business.

With that said, I thought this was an interesting video on why this person thinks Myspace marketing soes NOT work.

What do you think of this?

MySpace Marketing Does NOT Work!!! Volume 3 (http://www.metacafe.com/watch/649124/myspace_marketing_does_not_work_volume_3/) - The top video clips of the week are here (http://www.metacafe.com/)

I do like the ideas he discusses about if you are gonna use myspace, you need to promote you first and then use that as a platform to sell your business.

Matt, what's your take on why you have found a different result than this myspace user?

I didn't watch it all but I don't think he is saying that myspace marketing doesn't work. I am thinking tat he is saying that in order to make myspace work for you, you have to market yourself as well as your business http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

On another note I have to mention that our newest customer that we just signed on today did an online search for pet friendly lawn companies and my myspace came up prompting him to call us http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Now I am a bit disturbed that my myspace seems to be coming up in more searches than our actual website but thats something I gotta do more work with and probably a whole different topic...

I think you are right. The title was just a clever way of getting the video viewers attention. However it did open my eyes to new marketing strategies when using myspace.

Well I guess however you appear is great! As long as you get calls. It does make you wonder how to get your website to rank higher on search engines.
