Scheduled Missions now part of Premium!

Have you wanted to set a Mission start time and end time? The benefits for Scheduling Missions are immense. As different parts of the world come online during the day on Empire Avenue you can maximize the ability to reach more people around the globe by smartly scheduling your Missions to start and end at different days and times! Not to mention the ability to end Missions when a condition has been met (like a Sale has ended!)
Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.17.56 PM

We created Premium accounts for services that we could provide where members can get access to efficiency and business-type features. Scheduling Missions definitely falls into the category of helping you be more efficient with your time and get a better ROI from using Missions. Taking suggestions from our Community, we’re adding Scheduling Missions into our Premium Accounts at the Silver and higher level.

With a Silver account you will have 5 slots per month to schedule a Mission. For Gold you will be able to schedule up to 10 Missions per month and for Mercury+ the number rises to 25 slots per month. As before anyone can buy the Schedule Mission individual item.

Each slot means setting a start and expiry time for a Mission whether it is a Scaled Eaves Mission or a Vees Mission.

Please note existing Premium Members at the Silver level and higher have been given their monthly Scheduled Mission slots regardless of when they will renew as a small thank you from the Empire Avenue Team!

Get Scheduling!

Important Changes to the Referral Program

referrals_affiliate_beta

Thank you for being part of the Empire Avenue Referral Program. We have made some changes to the Referral program as we have learned from our first group of Referrers and Referrals!

1. New versus Existing Accounts

We are placing Referrals into two groups going forward. If someone uses your Referral Link and creates a new account, we will give a commission which is higher than normal. This commission will start at 15%. In this kind of New Account/Sign Up Referral, you will be the Referrer so long as both you and they are members of Empire Avenue. A New Account /Sign Up Referral may not switch their Referrer and following a new Referral link will result in no change.

For those Referrals who are existing Empire Avenue members and not already Referred as above, then you will be given a starting commission of 8% and the Referral will expire in 3 months unless they choose to remain your Referral by clicking your Referral link before the expiry. These Referrals may remove their Referrer or change their Referrer. The only exception to this is Premium Subscriptions. If you refer someone for a Premium Subscription, you will be their Referrer for the life of the Premium Subscription.

This change is effective immediately and going forward with regards to recording who signs up through a Referral link.

2. Who did you Refer? Now you know!

It’s important to know who you Referred. Part of the Empire Avenue Referral program is a mentoring which requires reaching out to those who you have brought into Empire Avenue. You can now see these details on the Referrals page on Empire Avenue: Click here to view who you have Referred (If you are an approved Referrer). We have indicated which accounts are New Account Referrals if it is the case (please note we do not know, nor can we tell if any Referrals prior to this blog post signed up with your Referral link).

3. The Referrals and Affiliates Empire Avenue Community Group.

We now have a Referrals and Affiliate Empire Avenue Community of which all active Referrers and Affiliates are members. Please come and discuss the Referrals Program.

With these changes we believe that the Referral Program is maturing quickly and we are super happy to have a stellar group of Referrers who have given us great feedback. We’re still learning from you and want you to succeed, so let us know how we can help you!

Tip the Scales in Your Favour

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 7.30.13 PM

Have you wanted your Scaled Eaves and Vees Missions to scale the Reward based on a specific single or specific set of networks?

We’ve rolled out the ability for Mission Creators to choose how they want their Mission Reward to be scaled when using Scaled Eaves or Scaled Vees Missions types.  In effect, allowing the Mission to target those on Empire Avenue with a specific Social Network.

This scaling is available to Mission Creators who have any type of Premium account. Gold and higher Premium Accounts can choose up to five Networks with which to scale.

How this works: If you choose to scale by a specific network, then an individual’s specific Network Score is used to scale the Reward they receive. If the person does not have that social network connected on Empire Avenue then they will be rewarded the minimum possible regardless of the range you have chosen for the Mission. For example, if a Mission is scaled to Twitter with a range of 5,000e to 25,000 and the completer does not have a Twitter account connected on Empire Avenue, then they will see their reward as 500e. For a Vees Mission the minimum is 1V.

If you do not choose specific network(s), then the Scaled Eaves and Vees Missions will function as before, using all of a Mission Completers Network Scores to contribute to how much the Reward will be.

Get some popcorn! Movie Rewards now available!

Time to get some popcorn and settle in for a Vee Movie night!

You can now exchange the Vees you have earned doing Missions on Empire Avenue into Digital Movies rentals and purchases. Please note, due to licensing requirements, like Music, Movies is only available to our users in USA and Canada. The Movies are streamed and hence you must be logged into Empire Avenue to watch the Movies. Rentals are streamed and available for 24 hours.

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 3.44.18 PM

While we cannot guarantee that the movie streaming will work on every device/PC, you should be able to stream through devices like Samsung Galaxy S4 and iOS7 device using the latest Chrome/Safari/Firefox as your browser.

Enjoy!
