Matt just wrote me this idea for a Myspace bulletin advertisement and asked for my advice on it.

I thought it was best to get feedback from everyone because it could get a lot more responses that would help.

Here is the ad.

I like how you have a limited time offer that applies only for the month of January.

What is your thought on including something like that in your second ad?

expiration dates are always good, makes them act faster. So that they wont just look at and say ummmm good idea but i will think of that later

expiration dates- ummmm i need to act on that special before that goes away,lol

i am going to repost the seond ad here shortly with a expiration date, i forgot to,lol

i have almost 200 friends on my myspace that are 5-10 miles from me

i'll just keep posting bulletins and hoping people see it and act on it

Are there actually adults (who don't live in their parent's basement) that use Myspace?

I've seen a few Myspace pages. I shook my head, wept for our future, and vowed not to step back into "Thatspace" again.

LOL Back in 2007 the transition was happening from myspace to FB. Now Facebook is where to advertise in my opinion. I'm not going to waste my time with myspace. No way!
