When you post a Myspace bulletin don't start with the stand by:
I'm awesome so check me out!
Try as statement more like this:
The awesome was so strong that I had to surrender to the magic that was being created. Will you join me in the awesome?
THE SAME GOES FOR FRIEND REQUESTS!
- Don't assume people are going to think your music is awesome. Especially if you aren't even checking out their interests or your 'mutual friends'.
- If you go on a Myspace friends binge consider spending some quality time doing it. Get to know your neighbors and start building a network not just a large friends count. Ask them who their favorite local band is or something.
- Offer your new friend something in return. "if you are at the show come introduce yourself and I will get you a copy of our sample EP..."
