I have noticed that businesses and companies are increasingly using social media and social networks to help promote their products and services, as well as connect with their customers. Take for example, Maui Pineapple Company and MySpace.com. On a blog recently, Maui Pineapple announced that it has created its own MySpace page. The page can be found at www.myspace.com/mauipineapplecompany.
Maui Pineapple’s MySpace page currently contains basic information about the company and a group of Maui Gold pineapple pictures and company logos. They say on the blog that the company will soon be putting videos on the MySpace page. The page is apparently quite new, but it looks like they have 10 MySpace friends already.
MySpace is a very smart promotional tool for businesses. We all know about the many musicians and bands that utilize MySpace pages, but more traditional businesses should be doing it. There is a lot of potential to join MySpace groups and to gather more fans. It also offers an excellent way to connect and interact with customers and fans of the company's offerings and brand.
