MySpace Should Not Be Your Main Website

MySpace, like other social networking sites, is a great way to meet new people, add to your network and become a part of online conversations. As a part of your online marketing it can be a useful tool.

 

However, it’s just that – one tool. It should not be your only online presence.

 

Here are a few reasons why:

 

  • Many corporations block it. Imagine the problems you’ll have trying to get sponsors, advertisers, etc. if the company representative can’t open your site.
  • It still has the stigma of being a site for teenagers. This will most certainly affect people taking your product/service seriously.
  • The platform is limiting in the amount of information that you include. For instance, you can’t have a multiple-page site.
  • You lose the free marketing of having a “yourname@yoursite.com” email address. Without a corporate site you’re stuck promoting yahoo, gmail or another free email service.
  • Do you really want to send the CEO of ABC, Corp. to your MySpace page for more information on your company?
