What the Heck is Empire Avenue?

Posted on Updated on

208I had been told to try Empire Avenue a couple of months ago and quite frankly, I just didn’t get it.  I got busy, I ignored it.  I joined a very active social media group on Facebook and they devote a day to promoting their Empire Avenue links.  I felt like the kid who was always tagged “it” and never really “got” Hide and Seek until I just took a day of educating myself on the merits of this little social media game.  It’s much more productive than any session of Candy Crush and has numerous possibilities if you’re in the serious game of increasing likes and engagement with your social media marketing.

For starters, watch this tutorial from Lisa Cash Hanson – it is excellent on how you get started.  The really cool part of Empire Avenue is the missions.  You need to gain “eaves” (akin to dollars) in order to afford a mission.  Invite friends to buy “shares” of your stock.  The more engaged you are on social media and in the game, the higher your net worth.  My video below shows my very first mission and within 4 minutes, I already had retweets of my post:

I’m by no means an expert at this, however, it is a powerful tool for engaging others to help you promote your page, event, business, etc.  Wide open for your imagination.  For those of you veteran Empire Avenue players, I’m all ears for tips and tricks on improving my skills on playing this wonderful game and improving my reach on Social Media.

      Lisa, your video was EXTREMELY helpful. I really didn’t understand what all the fuss was until I watched your video. I can’t thank you enough – this will help me grow my business exponentially.

      I certainly will, Barbara. I’m just getting started, so it’s fun to learn something new and see instant benefit.

    Great post Sarah! I did a video on how to do missions on EA, but that was a while back… I love EA, it’s like a “trade secret” that’s not so secret! Glad to have you join the EA crowd! 🙂

    Good info here! I tend to do EAV once a week, but do feel that it is a very useful social media tool.

    This was so valuable! I had seen others involved in Empire Avenue, but never had the time to figure out what they were doing! The video adds a quick oversight as well; thanks, Sarah!
