THE WINNER

Hunain

Hunain Naseer

Professional Content Developer, experienced in Copywriting, Content Marketing, Editing, Blogging, Graphic Design and WordPress.

(e)HUNAIN  The Ultimate Social Tool – An Empire Avenue Guide for Beginners

I had read about Empire Avenue but hadn’t tried it until a week ago, and now that I have, I wish I had signed up earlier. We all know how important social media is, but it has become considerably difficult to use effectively without spending a lot of time, and in some cases, money. Regardless, whether you’re a blogger, content developer, writer or marketer, you cannot afford to ignore social activity, connections and engagement, which is where Empire Avenue comes in.

(e)SEOFTMYERS Empire Avenue, Gamification, And Social Media Traction

In early March of 2012 I first heard of Empire Avenue, but didn’t really know what it was, it had been explained to me as a cross between Farmville and Linkedin, a description that fairly misses the mark, but at least leans in the right direction. A few weeks later, while on a business trip to Washington DC, I found time to make a side trip to Frederick Md. to meet with a group of SEO’s and social media strategists that I had both networked with for years, and one or two I’d worked closely with on several projects. That is where I got the real scoop on what Empire Avenue is, and why it is so useful! While the trip to Frederick cost me two consecutive half days, on a trip where optimal use of every minute was vital, it ultimately proved to be one of the best decisions I ever made!

ChrisM

Chris Munro

I am a transplanted New Englander living in Fuquay-Varina, NC, I blog/tweet about a wide range of topics: sci-fi, philosophy, science, history, politics, secularism, literature, pop culture, and … basically whatever interests me.

(e)CDOGZILLA 4 Reasons #EmpireAvenue is the Best Game You’re Probably Not Playing

Two questions first:

1. Do you use one or more of: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram, Flickr, LinkedIn, or Foursquare?

If you don’t use at least one of those, you may want to skip the rest of this; however, if you use one or more (especially if more), then you may want to read on.

2. Do you play any casual, browser-based/mobile app games?

If you do, then Empire Avenue (EAV) may well be the best game you’re not playing.

5 Reasons to Take a Drive Down Empire Avenue

‘This week Empire Avenue has been doing a blog-a-thon.  It’s a great idea to rally EAvers to blog about Empire Avenue and get some bring some additional visitors and publicity to their blogs, as well as to Empire Avenue.

Sounds like a win-win-win to me.

After more than 33 posts and 1200 posts, Empire Avenue Tips is one of the longest running blogs about Empire Avenue, so I couldn’t let this opportunity pass without contributing a post.

I THOUGHT STARTER PISTOLS FIRED BLANKS!

Often when folks join Empire Avenue they have interesting expressions about how hard it is to get started.  Some have likened the beginning with EA to trying to drink from a fire hose.  A new player sold the shares of someone who had been helping him creating an unfortunate encounter with the more senior player.  Smarting from his wounds, the newbie told me he thought starter pistols fired blanks.

EA fortunately has  added tons of new information designed to help new players understand the rules of the avenue.

Love for Empire Avenue

Empire Avenue, affectionately called “The Avenue”  is best described as a “Social Media stock market”.   It’s currency (eaves) are invested, earned, issued, and paid in developing an Empire Avenue stock portfolio that pays dividends daily.  Just as valuable is the lasting friendships and great relationships that are developed with other players.  Interactions with social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, YouTube, among others are vastly important in playing the game.
