…when starting off, you need to get Friends. It’s kind of a bragging right on MySpace. If you have too few friends, it’ll be tough to get the good ones—the ones who will end up buying from you. So, before you go after those, get a few hundred “bad” friends—bands are the easiest. They’ll give you a respectable number on your Friends list, and will leave comments on your page—giving a little realism boost to your profile—making the addition of friends of the “good” type that much easier.Finally, your focus in your social media marketing shouldn’t be solely on gaining links. The links are mainly a byproduct of being a good social citizen. Of course they’re still an essential byproduct nonetheless if you are an SEO. 🙂 But it shouldn’t be your main driver for participating in social media. Taking such a self-centered and short-sighted view will backfire. People will see through it. Operate by the principle of “pay it forward”. Karma, in other words. Live long and prosper.
