I 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.
