From many websites that I’ve encountered over these years, beside Fiverr, Empire Avenue has been one of those career changing sites for me. It’s everything that a newbie and professional needs from social media and social marketing. In this post I’ll explain everything that you need to know about Empire Avenue and show you how you can use this incredible website to make more friends in your niche, become known better and gain social followers.
- So what is Empire Avenue?
From Wikipedia: Empire Avenue is a stock market simulation social network game that allows users to buy and sell shares of people and websites.
First, the game itself is awesome! I can spend hours on this site and not get bored with it. The social investing game is basically like a stock market, where each user is a company. They have stocks, you can invest in them and if their stock price increases, you can sell it or choose to keep it. They can do the same thing. Stock price of each user changes depend on their activity on site, meaning if you do more stuff, invest more and do more missions, your stock price will increase.
- So what is the point?
In Empire Avenue, you can do missions, which is created by users and earn “Eaves”. Eaves are the major currency in this site. When you have enough Eaves, you can start missions and pay people (in Eaves) to do something that you want and here is when it gets interesting… For example, you can ask people to like a video, retweet your tweet or visit a webpage. Take a look at one of my missions: In this mission, I’m asking people to retweet my tweet so they can earn 10k Eaves. More interesting part is that many of them do more than just a retweet. Sometimes they follow me or favorite my other tweets too. The point is that I can get REAL people to interact with my social profile, get more engagement and visitors.
- Don’t do these on Empire Avenue
Generally users on Empire Avenue are good people, meaning that they do what you ask from them. This means that if you are doing someone’s mission; make sure to do what they say if possible. Also if you are running missions, don’t make them too hard or worthless for what you are paying. For example you can’t ask people to buy something or ask them to do something complicated and time consuming like completing a 20 minute survey! Keep it simple and easy, so people will get engaged with your mission.
