How to Make Ridiculous Money Online With MySpace – Part 1
This is first article in a series of articles about how to make ridiculous money with affiliate marketing and MySpace.
MySpace is absolutely loaded with all sorts of mechanisms for making money – all built into the system, but not for that purpose. As a marketer, you can think of MySpace as a massive network of potential affiliates and customers, all interwoven in a somewhat disorderly way. In order to make money, you must figure out how to overcome that disorder with a clean system.
The best way in which you can do that is to begin finding ways to break MySpace users into categories. Unless your product or service appeals to a general audience, you will want to zero in on the groups you feel will be your most responsive customers. You can do this in several different ways.
One way is to use the search and browse functions to find people who have certain interests or use certain words in their profiles. For instance, if you’re looking for someone who might make a good affiliate, you may search for people who have a background in computer science or in advertising. If you already have a profile at this point, you can simply add them to your friends list. If you find any unusually good prospects, remember to record their names in some database, so you don’t forget why you added them.
Another way in which you can do this is to look for people in forums and groups related to your topic. Do whatever you can to add useful information to threads; and then attempt to get as many people to join your list from those specific groups and forums.
Once you have added these new friends, you may want to contact them periodically to develop some type of personal relationship. For instance, you may want to send out bulletins that are related to your shared interest, but have nothing to do with your business
