Check Out The New Myspace

February  14, 2013

So Myspace is all set to make a momentous comeback, and is already sending ripples in the world of social marketing. The new Myspace layout has a lot to offer to business owners, and even though the site is still in its beta version, there is a lot that you can do to start planning your profile and doing the groundwork for a great start. Myspace is branding itself as a “social entertainment network”, as it shall include a lot more than just social networking, including movies, TV shows, music, and a lot more!

To set up an account on Myspace, you shall first have to choose a category that you belong to, out of categories like brand, fan, comedian, etc. This selection shall be important in deciding your account type, but you shall be able to change it later on. The site is being closely integrated with other popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter, and shall make it possible to not only connect with friends you have on these networks, but also share your Myspace status updates on other social media sites.

A striking difference between the new Myspace and the older version is that this one has a much simpler interface. You shall notice this right from the get-go, with the process of updating your profile information being a lot easier and quicker. The home page brings together the best of everything, right from a cover photo to a section dedicated to your website’s link, which is great for businesses. The “manage” option in different profile types allows you to customize them as per your selected choice, and also easily upload files. The new Myspace is laying major focus on music and audio clips, and this just might be what makes it stand out in the social media sea.

Once you are done with setting up your profile, you shall be able to post updates of up to 150 characters and a photo. You shall also be able to customize your stream and add filters to it, to decide what kind of information you want to see in your stream. Since the website is still in the Beta version, you can only join it via someone who already has a profile on it. You can then connect your existing social media accounts to your Myspace page to add more connections.

Social Network Advertising And Promotions

June 27, 2010

Over the period of time, social networking has become extremely popular. Everyday thousands of people are signing up for websites like MySpace, Twitter and Facebook. In May 2010, Facebook alone had more than 400 million user profiles in its network. With millions of viewers visiting every day on such sites, it is important for business portals to use this fact to their advantage.

Advertising on social networking sites can prove to be very beneficial for promoting your web business. You can advertise on social networks by posting videos, pictures, links, groups, fan pages and ads. Proper management of your social networking campaign allows you to attract viewers to your own web space. The ROI of such advertising campaigns are much higher than any other form of paid advertisements.

While using social network advertising, it is important to target the right audience in the right way. The kind of traffic being driven to your website can make your small online business turn into a million dollar business. People will click on links only when they are genuinely interested in finding out more about a product or service. If your ad specifies your website objectives clearly, interested viewers will surely visit your website.

While advertizing or promoting your business on any of the social network, spamming should not be done at all. Spamming is completely undesirable on social networking websites. By spamming banners and links to your site, you will not get any additional visitors. In fact, you will only create a bad impression on potential customers and may also get banned from the networks.

A unique feature of social network promotions is that you get to know your audience well. Social networking sites allow you to talk to people and seek their feedback on your services and products.

Social networking sites have provided a new avenue to online businesses for promoting their products and services effectively. We at Centex Technologies provide complete internet marketing solutions including social networking campaigns and Search Engine Optimization.

Social Networking

Jan 5, 2010

Social networking is one of the latest trends over internet.  Although it seems to be the most modern trend, its history goes back to 1985 when THE WELL was initiated. THE WELL is one of the oldest online communities which is known for its online forums.  During the 1990’s technology was at a boom and sites like tripod.com and geocities .com started getting popular. These sites would let individuals create their homepage which was generally a personal profile.  This was also the starting of the blogging culture within internet.

In 1997, SixDegrees.com was launched where you could create user profiles and send messages directly to friends. SixDegrees.com allowed you to search for people with similar interests and add them to your friends list. In spite of having all these features, SixDegrees.com was shut down as it could not gather profits, maybe because the site was ahead of its time. During 2002 and 2004 there were three such sites namely Friendster, Myspace and Linked in that emerged and changed the way people worked on internet. It started with Friendster in 2002 which Google tried to acquire in 2003, then Myspace which had more page views that Google at one time and then Linkedin.  In 2004, Facebook started emerging and in just a few years Facebook became one of the fastest and the largest growing sites not limiting to geographical locations. Facebook opened gateways by allowing externally developed add on applications which allowed people to integrate their applications within the site.  Facebook is not only used by individuals but also used by several businesses to promote their services and products as well.

After 2005, Social Networking began flourishing as a business component and many businesses started using sites like Facebook, Bebo and Myspace as a tool to promote their businesses.  In 2006 came Twitter which although has comparatively lesser features became one of the most popular sites in 2008-09 because of the ease of use it allows.

Social networks are becoming increasingly popular amongst students, teachers, businessmen, non profit organizations, celebrities and others to interact with each other. It is easy to create profiles and get connected to people with your interests. Sites like Facebook , Myspace and Orkut have started using Collabarative techniques to give users a better experience  while sites like Twitter are winning on the ease of use syndrome. With all this in action, there are more developments that are being done in order to make  it easier for people to get connected.

Centex Technologies plans Social Networking campaigns for clients to market their products on major social networks.
