How to Make a (Good) MySpace Page - Creating Your MySpace Profile
(Page 2 of 4 )
Your MySpace profile will become your calling card and a point of reference for everyone who searches for you. When you create a good MySpace page, traffic will see a profile that concisely explains who you are, what you do and numbers your professional accomplishments. You can, and should, add links in your profile that will take traffic to your main Web site and other sites you want to drive visitors toward.
First, you’ll have to come up with a headline for your profile. In most cases, this will be your name or business name. In the “About Me” section you’ll want to feature a short biography explaining who you are and what you do. Make this bio brief, concise and professional. Write it in the third person (do not use “I” or “me”) and keep it objective...while showcasing your achievements in the best light, of course.
The MySpace profile can be as extensive or as brief as you wish. Your profile contains blank fields for interests, people you’d like to meet, music, movies, television, books and heroes. At first glance, these categories may not seem to lend themselves easily to professionalism -- but look again.
Any of these fields can be left blank if you wish, and they will not appear in your profile. The Interests section can be a good place for short blurbs and links, directing traffic to work or sites of yours that you’d like for them to see. If you have some connection with the entertainment industry professionally, the Music, Movies and Television sections can serve as a space to catalog your achievements therein. Under people you’d like to meet, you can include information about contacts you’d like to make or say nothing at all (the section simply won’t appear on your profile page).
Remember that your MySpace profile will be available to the entire community of MySpace users as well as those who are searching the Internet through popular engines. Put thought into what they’re going to see and check over your words carefully. Nothing is more unprofessional than spelling errors on a profile page that’s supposed to showcase you or your business.
