Announcing the next phase of Empire Avenue!

The first social media network run by members, for members

eavleaders_badgeAre YOU ready to help shape the future of Empire Avenue? As you know, Empire Avenue created a new community – the Empire Avenue Leaders. The goal is clear: get 2,000 people to each join Empire Avenue Leaders. For buying the $100 Empire Avenue Leaders Upgrade any individual will receive a truly generous member benefits package.

Did you wonder WHY the community was called Empire Avenue Leaders? It’s simple. Starting now, the Leaders are RUNNING Empire Avenue’s marketing, recruitment, and retention programs. The technical staff will continue to support the platform, manage the database, and provide normal tech support. Beyond that – it’s up to US to chart the marketing course to get to 2000 leaders. Longer term, Leaders may have an even greater influence on the platform’s future functionality.

This is a truly amazing opportunity. The Empire Avenue Leaders will develop and test new marketing messages, new ways to recruit – and retain – new members, and new ways to interact with each other. Plus, we can explore new ways to make the game fun and rewarding for all.

Our first goal is to get the Empire Avenue Leaders community to 2000 members Empire Avenue needs to demonstrate that it has an enthusiastic, highly engaged community. Do that and we all benefit from a reborn site that gives us real rewards for our social media engagement. The future is in our hands.

Right now, YOU have the chance to shape the course of Empire Avenue. To move from back seat driving into making a real difference by bringing YOUR ideas to life. Here’s how:

  1. Join the Empire Avenue Leaders.
  2. Go to the Empire Avenue Leaders Community to join the discussions.
  3. Join (or create) a working group that interests you.
    • Video wiz? Make video testimonial montage, or create video explainers to help newcomers unlock the site’s power.
    • Designer? Create graphics, logos, tips, and maybe even a new identity.
    • Marketer? Dream up recruitment, retention, and outreach ideas.
    • Writer? Write tips and blog posts for the site. Pitch in to create an Empire Avenue Wiki.
    • Trainer? Make it easy for new members to engage.
    • People Person? Create a Welcome Wagon for new members. Brainstorm ways to re-engage inactive members. Recruit friends.
  4. Your group will submit your ideas and creations to the Leaders Community for review and prioritization by the community and by Admins/Brand Managers (See the process in the discussion group.)

Together, we have the talent, the ideas, the expertise, and the influence to make Empire Avenue as powerful as we are. You can take the lead, contribute ideas and time, or simply join and enjoy your member benefits. All leaders will help determine which ideas get prioritized and implemented first.

We hope to see you in the Empire Avenue Leaders community SOON. Remember, the first 500 Leaders will enjoy a special Bonus ON TOP OF the generous Leader package. Please join us now to talk about this exciting change and help us get started!

An important letter to our Community

Duleepa WijayawardhanaI want to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for being part of the Empire Avenue Community and family.

From a small social stock market we created four years ago in the northern reaches of Canada, we’ve climbed the Alexa rankings, reached over 75 countries, and our Missions socially engage communities in ways that cannot be easily duplicated on the web.

Our entire team is committed to move Empire Avenue to greater heights, but we need your help.

While I will remain on the Board of Directors, we have decided that we need a new leader and an enhanced management team to lead Empire Avenue into the next phase of its worldwide growth.

In order to do that we urgently need to raise sufficient funds to transition to a new team, raise institutional capital, and significantly grow our Empire Avenue membership to better serve our entire world-wide community.

We’ve created a new Empire Avenue Leaders Exclusive Community, limited to 2,000 people. Entry into that Community will be through our Shop at $100, and it comes with $1500 of value with membership-only dividends, all the Pie in the world and some new ones, Eaves and more. Purchasing this Exclusive Community access will help us fund the next transformation and find new leadership from outside or from within this community.

Again, we are limiting this community to 2,000 members; however, you can join from multiple accounts.

Act now to become an Empire Avenue Leader. I want you to help transform our platform into a global social marketplace connecting the world to people’s knowledge and networks.

Thanks again from the Empire Avenue Team —  past, present and future — for your active engagement in our community,

Duleepa Wijayawardhana
Co-Founder and Director, Empire Avenue

Promote Your Eaves Missions

You can now Promote Eaves Missions as well as Vees Missions. Previously you could only promote Vees Missions. A promoted Mission is displayed at the top of the Missions page always. Promoting a Mission is like running a Google Ad into the Search Results: More Views, more Completions, better Mission Results!

Promoted Missions work by buying “Promoted Mission slots” which are available in the Empire Avenue Shop. A single use of promoting a Mission is $5 and a pack of 5 Promoted Missions is $20. Please note that a Mission is “Promoted” for 12 hours or until the Mission runs out (which ever comes first). You can only Promote A/B graded Missions. Promoted Missions may be downgraded manually and they will stop being Promoted at that point, so please make sure you read the Missions rules and guidelines!

When you are creating Promoted Missions you can choose the “Promote This Mission” option in the Mission Create form, purchasing of slots (if you don’t already have them) can be done when you go to start the Mission.

Please note, at this time we have not added Promoted Missions into the Premium Subscriptions Accounts, we are evaluating what this will look like in the future.
