Is site like soundclick and myspace good for producers?

There's a ton of websites that allow you to upload your music, pictures, videos and other things to there're site for free. I see a lot of fellow producers using these site as the main website for they're beats. Yes these sites allow you to do many things for free however these websites will never beat having your own site and I am going to tell you why. First off you have to think what these websites were designed for? They were not design for you to be successful. They were design to give people a play ground to play in so they can advertise to you. That's it! They know they have to give you toys to play with in order to keep you coming back everyday so they can advertise to you. Is that a bad thing? No cause they have to get paid too. They can't run a major site like that giving away everything for free. So they charge for advertising. Now these site such as social networks are good because you do meet people that otherwise would never had met. Now that's what social networks and website like soundclick is good for. The first contact. Don't try to cram pictures, videos, and music all on one page. Put a few things on there just enough to make them go to your real site. Get your own site! That might be scary for some people who don't know coding but, there is templates at many website hosting sites so you don't have to code. You might be thinking it must be expesive. What! I just went to soundclick.com and and saw you can upgrade to there VIP membership and is $9.95. I can show you how to get your own website with your own domain name, 1,000 email address(yes it can be useful), unlimited space(You could use it as a unlimited hard drive) and many more features for $4.99. This is special going on from 9/10/09 - 10/08/09. Even without the special lets say you don't get a chance until after 10/08/09. You looking at $8 to $12 a month. Use those site as a marketing tool to your own website and be your own soundclick or myspace. Go to my site. scroll down to news and you will see where to get that deal.

    Sites like soundclick and myspace get tons of traffic already. With your own site, you will have to spend alot more money advertising it than you would if you were simply a member of an already established site. Thats just my opinion.

    Branding is key in this situation like aimeantonio is doing.
    You have to build a brand to get people to "trust" you and your work.
    Every Social Networking Site brings a different crowd...but some do overlap.

    It depends how you push ya product and how its presented. But don't just use SC, MySpace, FB, Twitter, etc. to push ya stuff.

    Soundclick and myspace are oversaturated, but if you can promote it where you'll be recognized then great. You definitely would need it for exposure, so it can help you get your name out. I've seen plenty of people who have their own domains and they have their url forwarded to their myspace or soundclick, because the information is already there. Their myspace is usually customized anyway, so they're using their domain name properly. But really how many people go to the website already? I feel if you don't have a following already, it's difficult. You need everything, twitter, facebook, a blog, myspace(even though no one uses it except for musicians). You really have to promote, but I think having a domain name that forwards to your customize myspace or soundclick is a step in a right direction.
