As a social media ghostwriter, I have many clients who want their business to be on MySpace (along with Facebook and Twitter) but feel that MySpace is ugly. Well, they are right, MySpace standard templates are somewhat cluttered and not very attractive. But, with the right tools, your MySpace page doesn’t have to be so heinous.
Now, I know that MySpace templates/backgrounds are an industry in itself but I’m not talking about backgrounds with sparkling unicorns. There are code generating sites that are user-friendly for non-coders and allow you to adjust background colors, text and layout very easily.
An example of one of these sites is www.codingmylayout.com. By navigating past some of its annoying ads and sticking to the left hand menu, you’ll be able to locate the section you need and find the coding generators to be self explanatory (see example below).
And remember, just because you don’t use MySpace, there are still millions that do and may need your services.
