I then replicated the successful money-making techniques by fine tuning my profile and website offer. By targeting one specific high-paying niche, it maximized results and brought more income.

Jinger: Why do you think MySpace is such an effective place to market your business? Why would you recommend MySpace?
Matthew: For starters, MySpace currently has more than an 80 percent market share over all social networking websites. This accounts for a total number of profiles in excess of 100 million and My Space is currently ranked the 5th most visited website on the planet. As you can imagine the sheer number of people on MySpace makes it an extremely attractive place to find hungry customers.
Coupled with the fact that MySpace allows you to customize your own webpage with HTML code and CSS to give it any kind of look you want and link to outside sources is irresistible. Imagine the potential of having a popular profile centered around a lucrative keyword and linking it to your own Adsense monetized website or sales page.
Once you’ve got a popular profile it becomes an incredible opportunity just waiting for you to plug in to it. Through the use of groups, forums, messages, events, comments, blogs, videos and classified advertising you have a multitude of ways to reach people interested in your products and turn them into your customers.
You can use MySpace to get targeted customers for virtually any product you have to offer and you can grow your opt-in lists to continue the selling process. The best part is, you can use MySpace to tap in to the most powerful kind of marketing ever known, word of mouth.
Jinger: What marketing technique do you find to be the most effective, and how do you use it? Would you tell us one or two of your best marketing tips?
Matthew: As a marketer, the most important key to remember is that your MySpace profile is created to attract viewers to your website. To do this, you must determine the most remarkable aspect of your product and turn that into your own persuasive story. Your whole profile must reflect your unique story and be structured so that it not only appeals to your target audience but compels them to find out more.
