MySpace and other social network marketing

Ok, I think we can all agree that MySpace isn't the most well designed site..... however despite that, it's impossible to ignore the fact that it is a great marketing platform.

Has anyone tried marketing their sites/products on MySpace? Some big companies are getting into it pretty heavily.
http://www.myspace.com/helio for example or http://www.myspace.com/yourfast

If anyone's interested, here are some good resources for creating these profiles:

But yeah, has anyone tried this and how has it worked for you?

I'd argue that point, well, maybe clarify. It's a good (not great) marketing platform for free stuff and other promo type marketing. I personally think myspace is a horrible marketing platform.

Most major advertisers don't want their ads on myspace, nor do they want to advertise on a site that gets a high % of it's traffic from myspace. I see orders all the time that specifically state that.

Myspace gets a huge amount of traffic from a young demographic with a good deal of disposable income. Perhapse banner ads might not be the best, but using myspace's demographic search features to target the type of people you'd like to add to your "friends" it seems like it could work pretty well if done right.

Just out of curiosity, what kinds of orders are those?

Thanks for the feedback!

I understand why they would NOT want their ads on myspace but why would they care if the site they advertise in gets a high % of its traffic from myspace????
This does not add up.

My guess is that advertisers in a lot of markets have tagged myspace traffic (on myspace itself or on a site that gets a large % of it's traffic from myspace) as low quality/poor converting. I've seen it myself in a few markets - sites that get the bulk of their traffic from myspace are consistantly outperformed by those that don't.

I'm sure myspace is great in some markets...just not in any of the ones I work in.

Chicago i think the op wasnt talking about buying ads on myspace but making profiles with affiliate offers on them and then messaging people about it. Which is the best converting free traffic ive ever known. Works for ringtones, wallpapers, webcams (anything adult works great)

Network marketing seem to have allot of buzz around it. I don’t think it will be as successful as blogs in terms of numbers, however its model can be integrated into your own website niche/demographic to make it very successful. In the same way Friends Reunited is based around a similar model and look how successful that became.
