This is the biggest [X]PendaPalooza EVER. And it is thanks to the vision of [X]Bar and the passion of our Leaders Community.

HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!

* Do you know a past, inactive, or sporadic player? Reach out to them personally! Joining Leaders and participating in [X]PendaPalooza is a truly [X]cellent way to reconnect with the re-energized Empire Avenue community. Get them onboard by Saturday and they can enter the contest to win one of three 10,000 Vee prizes, too!

* Do you have friends who own small businesses, work in marketing or social media, have a blog or online site, or who simply need to jumpstart their social media efforts? THIS IS THE TIME TO JOIN. During [X]PendaPalooza, people will give away shares, eaves, and run LOTS of high ticket missions. Encourage them to join the Leaders and they can buy up to 2,700 shares — which means they can accept all the invest missions. (We can only buy 400 of them to start, but we all know leaders will be back to top them up.) They’ll meet active players AND get more investments, more quickly. Plus, if they also buy that incredible $20 10 million eaves package, they’ll have the eaves they need to buy back people who invest in them.

* Do you have friends in EA who haven’t joined Leaders yet? This is a great opportunity to chat with them, tell them about your experience — all the buys, the double dividends, the bonuses on missions for leaders, and much more — and let them know about the incredible bonuses this weekend. As you’ve seen, the Leader package bonuses are JUST THE BEGINNING for Leaders. The more work this group does, the more rewards we all get. And the sooner your friends join, the more benefits they will reap.

BRING A FRIEND! Remember: you’re likely to be online to help your friend… and other Leaders will pitch in too. Introduce them to us. Run an Invest mission for them with your [X]tra Eaves.

LET’S ALL PULL TOGETHER TO SPREAD THE WORD & TAKE A BIG STEP TOWARDS OUR 1,000 LEADER MILESTONE.

Friends don’t let friends miss [X]PendaPalooza!

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!
