Band Myspace Designers - is it worth it?
Ask yourself this question, if you were running a business would you try to create a website that looked exactly the same as your competition?
Your answer will most likelly be no, however this is what many bands are doing with their myspace profiles, they get a free layout which is often badly designed and contains really flashly backgrounds that are amazingly distracting to the eye and draws attention away from the really important elements that makes up a myspace page.
It's for this exact reason that you must hire a professional myspace designer and pay them to design something unique, professional looking and simple to use for your fans and myspace users, why make it difficult for someone to focus on what you want them to do?
By working with a professional designer you can decide the goals that you want your myspace page to achieve, for example if you want more friends then the goal might be to redesign the page and have the add to friends button the biggest element on the page, make it front and center on your profile so that no one who views your page could possibly miss it.
This is a very important factor that most people overlook when using myspace for their band, they often think it's just a place to upload some songs and pictures, when infact it's much more than that, several bands have been discovered and made big waves in the music industry just because of their following on myspace, perhaps you could be the next big thing if you learn how myspace works.
I'd recommend that you decide on a goal for your myspace page right now and go away and implement that idea, if you want more friends then change the order of your profile around, have big arrows pointing at the add to friends button, just do something to make sure that feature is more visable and I'm sure you'll see more friend requests the next time you log on.
