The competition for attention on MySpace is intense. Each band, musician, artist, comedian, actor, etc, is vying for attention and aiming to stand out from the crowd. But, with so many pages (and so many more being added all the time), it can be very difficult to break through the clutter.
Many artists on MySpace have started to discover the benefits of building a MySpace mailing list. This means they place a signup box on their profile and let their fans, friends and family signup to receive special email newsletters, notifications of new releases, show dates, etc. While these artists still have to get fans to their page to signup, once they have captured their fans" information, these artists can send fans targeted email campaigns that take place off of the MySpace universe and away from some of that clutter.
MySpace has become the platform for all sectors of the entertainment industry to reach out and promote their talents. Many artists are now searching for new ways to contact their fans. One of the dominating tactics employed by the entertainment industry for both those starting out on MySpace and well established users is the use of email marketing programs.
Conventional paper flyers have been the preferred method for 'spreading the word' in years past, but many things have changed. Email marketing now gives the entertainment industry that uses MySpace access to create, send, and track professional modern digital flyers and newsletters. Since most email marketing programs are very user-friendly and integrate seamlessly into your MySpace profile, there are very little road-blocks or hurdles holding any artist back.
