Topic: Myspace, any of you guys in there?
Message: Posted by: Roslyn (Sep 10, 2006 03:30PM)
Hi all,

I was wondering how many of you guys are on myspace?

I've managed to track a few of you down, but would love to be able to add the rest of you as friends and see what you've all been up to this summer.

I look forward to seeing you in there. My myspace blog is accessable by clicking the link in my signature.

Take care,

I don't do My Space. IMO it is great if you are 15 but on a professional level It is far more professional to have an actual web page to advertise your services.

I gotta agree with SoCalPro on this one. I'm not a pro, but if I were, there is no way I'd use Myspace to advertise my services. I think it looks cheap and low rent. "Bush league" if you will. It's fine to play around with, but I'd never use it to advertise per se, and I'd probably never hire someone who didn't have a legit website.

Thanks for understanding. I am sure I will take some heat for my post but like Sponge Bob says... "I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready!!" :)

Jim and Vandy be correct. I don't take myspace things seriously when I see the link (I've never been to the site) and also don't take people serious if they use a hotmail account for business email.

It's a fun place to browse and have some fun but on a professional level, not the best choice.

Message: Posted by: Tony Iacoviello (Sep 13, 2006 03:04PM)
I disagree. Not with the fun place to hang around part. If you get the chance, do look around. What you will find is that many people in the entertainment community have a presence on MYSPACE and use it to help market themselves, and it works!

Just my thoughts.

I Tend to agree with the Web site View. I do have a Personal Space, but I also have a proper Web site for advertising my as a Magician. I think that it looks far more proffesional too.

After all, a web site can cost Money, If you can do it yourself or have a friend that it may not, but a prospective client may not know that, they only see a profesional site. and they do say that Money goes to Money...

That is my outlook anyways.

Myspace can be a good "Interim" site while a website is being built (As mine is), but it's primary function for me is networking with other performers and venues. For that, it can be amazing! A lot of my long distance gigs were made from contacts on myspace.
Would a biker bar in South Carolina have known about my website up here in Michigan? No...But through the friend of a friend type of networking done through myspace, we were found, got to open for Hank Williams III and headline in a weekend long festival.
It is not about professionalism or advertising. Myspace is all about Networking.
I wouldn't use it as my only way to get my info out there, and a real solid webpage is crucial, but it can be a start.
Just my thoughts.
Message: Posted by: Sylver Fyre (Sep 14, 2006 09:52AM)
I agree with Gwyd. It has gotten our names out there to get the paying jobs that are paying for our site to be built. And our professional site will still include our myspace page. It's great to build local fan base as well as talk and meet others across the country.
Yes it is more professional to have your own website(easier for people to remember the addy especially!), but then again I've seen some websites for performers that are less professional then some sites on myspace.

[b]No one has suggested to use myspace strictly to market yourself. Not even I would use myspace to market myself to event planners.

I do however use MySpace to keep connected with fans and other poor souls who've watched my show.

It's incredibly popular right now.[/b]

As for the little "tweens" - no one gets added to my friends list unless they're over 18. (unless I know them personally and their parents are okay with it)

Your website is one thing, MySpace is another. Myspace is fun. If you read the other threads, you will find that performers that play to college kids have a website for the bookers and a MySpace page for the fans.

Well, this is frustrating. I just signed up to myspace, as I heard you could upload music clips (not music videos, but mp3's, etc). I thought this would be a new project to upload some of my music projects.

The problem is myspace shows how to upload videos and OTHER artist's music, but not your own.

Can you upload your own music only onto myspace? (or did someone lie to me?)

Message: Posted by: gsidhe (Oct 24, 2006 08:20AM)
In order to do that you ned to sign up with a musician/artist account like a band would.
Videos of any sort...That you can do with a normal account.
I don't know any more about the music stuff beyond that though.
Message: Posted by: RickVancouver (Oct 26, 2006 11:30AM)

Thanks for the reply. I did find where to sign up as a musician/artist. (I wish they would've made this clearer to begin with)

The problem I have now is, when I went to sign up in the musician/artist section it won't accept my email because it's "already in use" (by the original account I created).

Do I have to cancel my original account in order to sign up for this new one?

If so, how does one cancel their account?

Message: Posted by: gsidhe (Oct 26, 2006 12:09PM)
Either cancel the original account (Which is under the account settings menu) or create a new e-mail addy specifically for the music myspace account.
I do the multiple sites thing with multiple addys.
