Myspace

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Gainesville Apartments by Trimark Properties

I know that Pizza Hut and Blockbuster and many national advertisers use MySpace as a major source of traffic and demand... does anyone have any clever ideas on how to use MySpace? 

Let me know!  I'll soon be posting a summary of the ideas I receive as well as information about my own experienes!

UPDATE:
Myspace DOES in fact allow links, but it doesn't love the links, so you should take the utmost care when thinking that Myspace is good for seo or great for business.  So far, we've done very little work on it-- and seen very little traffic.  I don't expect Myspace to become one of our central means of obtaining strong traffic.  But we'll keep you posted as we continue our research. 

We are also considering Squidoo as another potential good way to get incoming traffic.  Thoughts?

Myspace is fine, but if you are going to spend the time why not spend it on things that are more Real Estate related and will give you much more bang for your time real estate wise.

You could do REW Blogs Sign-up for free at www.realestatewebmasters.com

You can do Squidoo Lens about any topic you want.  I have one that went to #3 for  the Google search "Morris Township Real Estate" only took 5 days to get there.

You can do a Wordpress blog, I have had one for about 2 weeks for Morristown and have posted 1 thing on it which was my bio, it is on page 7 for the google search "Morristown Real Estate"

Lots of other things you can do as well.  Not saying myspace is bad, just saying that there are other places you can get more return for your time.

I like these ideas (and I recently started the REW blog, have a personal blog, and we're on the 1st page -- knock on wood :) -- for our top 25 keywords).  I actually read something you wrote on REW about Squidoo and plan to implement that next week.

I suppose I am coming from a different angle:  First, I'm trying to get renters (not buyers) in a college town.  Average age for our tenants is 21; they are on MySpace in droves, daily.  Plus, if they google my keyword terms, they are already going to end up on my page (mostly true statement).  I'm trying to target the client who doesn't necessarily think of using google to find a place to live-- they may just be considering that they need a roommate.

Know what I mean?  I want to go for the "recency" factor of advertising, as in: they just realized they need some place to live, and there is the perfect link.

But I do love the squidoo idea that you put out there and plan to implement that soon.

BTW, I think we'd be a good asset to each other.  You seem to be coming at SEO and online marketing from a similar methodology as I do.  If you'd like to email (so that our communications are easily searchable online by each others competitors), feel free to send me something.  I promise to keep your best secrets (the ones you don't want to publish online with your competitors, but wouldn't mind telling someone who is not at all in your niche) close and not publish them.

I actually have a myspace page for my real estate. I have a personal one as well, but felt I needed one professional. I have been meeting people through there. I send request to those in marketing and real networking. It's still in progress. I just did this page maybe three weeks ago.

I wasn't aware of those listed above and plan on looking into it today. Thanks for the advice.
