Seems like my first post on Marketing Profs: Daily Fix, is already causing a stir. My post was about how marketers need to learn to join the community they are targetting, and I used Phil Angelides creating a MySpace page to aid in his quest to be elected governor of California as my example. I offered that Angelides joining MySpace was a great move, because he is now connecting to the young voters of his state in THEIR space. He's joined their community, and as a result they are responding very positively, at least if you read the comments from his 1200+ friends.
But....it seems not everyone is buying what I am selling. Which is great, because I *love* it when people smarter than I am challenge me to re-think and justify my opinions. ( A lesson Tara found out the hard way after I left a few 5-page comments on HorsePigCow ;))
Since we have some new, and veteran MySpacers here, thought JD, Jordan, and Chris might want to stop by and put in your 2 cents here.
