Empire Avenue Mission Mania has begun #EAv-Missions

One of the most powerful aspects of Empire Avenue is the ability to run missions .


Ready, set, DOUBLE your daily dividends by doing missions!

UTC: Aug 22 0100 => Sept 2 0100 (EDT: Aug 21 9:00 pm => Sept 1 9:00 pm)

What do you need to do ?

* Do at LEAST 11 missions in every 24 hour period to trigger dividend bonuses

What will you earn ?

* You’ll earn an extra 2% payout on dividends UP TO 100% (or 50 missions)
* You MUST maintain positive feedback — negative feedback will disqualify you for that 24 hour period
* GIVE POSITIVE & NEGATIVE FEEDBACK TO YOUR MISSION COMPLETERS — this is the time to recognize the people who go above and beyond by giving your mission extra attention.

* No feedback = ONE positive
* Positive feedback = TWO positive
* Negative feedback = One negative

So, if you don’t take time to give feedback, you are automatically giving positive feedback. That’s fine as long as you understand how it works.


What are missions?

Missions is a feature on Empire Avenue that allows players to discover new people, content, and brands in which you can get rewarded for viewing a piece of content with eaves or vees that you can use throughout the site.

Can I Force People To Take My Mission and require action? 

No, you can’t. You can only encourage people to take your mission and view the content. A mission is completed when a person clicks the button and goes to your content with intent to read. Action such as liking, sharing, or commenting is optional and up to mission completer

(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!

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.
