Default Is Myspace As Successful At Promoting Businesses?

Or should I stick with Faceook, Twitter and LinkedIn?

There's no harm having another avenue.

My advice will be to try all social networking sites (as far as your time allows) and see which works well for you.

Although we all know that facebook and twitter is one of the most used social media network to increase traffic and revenue, we should not disregard other sources of promotion. This way we can ensure that we are maximizing our opportunities of being successful in our business.

All of these sites are useful and there is no harm in using some more sites because using more social media sites means getting more traffic to your site.

I agree with everyone here but would like to add: that it depends on your niche or industry. Facebook tends to draw a different crowd than MySpace, so you may draw a completely different demographic. I would go for it and decide which demographic converts better for you.

It's always better to check it out so you know. You can back off if it's a waste of time.

Yes that's true not all the social networking sites attract the same type of people. But you will never know until you try it for your specific niche.

Default My Space

One real nice thing about advertising on My Space is low cost and very good demographic targeting. Facebook is also low cost and has good demographics (and better reporting tools that My Space).

My Space is lower in cost than Facebook but both of them are much less expensive that advertising with Google Adwords.

I say give it a try and watch your stats to see what is working for your biz. A Facebook Fan Page is another great way to help promote your business.

A quick aside; has anyone ever found a MySpace page which wasn't slow to load, full of graphics and waffle?!
