A lot of people aren’t too sure about Empire Avenue and some of the comments I’ve been reading are quite funny, especially coming from Social Media consultants and advocates and dare I say, even from some of the Social Media gurus?
Frankly, I’ve heard a lot of similar comments in the past about other Social Media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter and even Flickr and LinkedIn. (Not too many people ever considered YouTube just a fad or a gimmick, that’s was always an obvious winner!)
How are Facebook and Twitter doing now? Not too bad by all accounts!

To me and I guess I am an ‘early adopter’, or early-ish at least, as I’ve only been into Empire Avenue a couple of days, it’s a simple enough concept. It’s all about communication and sharing and that’s the epitome of Social Media is it not?
Do I completely understand what Empire Avenue is really all about? No! Of course I don’t! I’m busy and I have got plenty of other things to do, BUT during the occasional coffee break and rather than watching TV at night, while my kids do homework and my wife plays Scrabble on her lap top, I’m checking out Empire Avenue!
I’ve met some great new people and it’s fun, much more fun that TV!!
OK, so what is Empire Avenue all about? Basically, it’s about investing into other people, many of whom you are bound to know personally or have heard of either on the Social Media scene or from some corner of the Blogosphere.
The idea, and some people don’t seem to fully appreciate it yet, is to communicate and buy and sell shares and develop your Empire Avenue ‘brand’ and grow. Do I know all the secrets of Empire Avenue, no I don’t! Is my share price rising? Yes, quite considerably and some of that is down to my choosing good people to invest into and my personal Social Media activity on a daily basis.
I have read that some people feel Empire Avenue should make it easier to use and explain everything… come on, are you serious? Some people are still learning the basics of Facebook, some don’t even know how to do Facebook marketing via a business page! Half the fun of new stuff is learning about it, right?!
All your top Facebook friends and Twitter followers are available to invest into, if they’re members, and so are lots of new Social Media advocates. That’s where the networking begins!
I recommended the guys at LetUsBeSocial, Buffer and the tCn team to join and I bought shares in them immediately, while their prices were nice and low! I’ve just got to hope they get into it and their prices go up. I’ve also bought into other people I know from Twitter and Facebook and developed those online friendships even further! My friend Dillon who introduced me to Empire Avenue, bought my shares very cheap and he’s making good money on them!! He just knew I’d be well into this!
Here’s some of the awards I’ve won already for being active AND I haven’t been on here hours, just a few visits during coffee breaks and in the evening!
Joining is easy, you can just sign in with your Facebook account. What’s stopping you?
What do I think, really? I think it’s great and a fun diversion in a what’s a very serious and challenging world right now. Will Empire Avenue become a major success? Very probably, but it is hard to say after only having been on it for a couple of days!
Does Empire Avenue really offer similar results to Klout and PeerIndex? Maybe, maybe it’s even better because it considers (measures) all personal interaction within the actual site too and there’s much more to interact with than on Klout or PeerIndex.
Do you want to join?? Should you join??
If you are into Social Media you really ought to at least take a good look, try the system out before you judge it and certainly before you recommend it or not to other people.
Is it productive or a waste of time in a world filled with Social Media platforms and digital distractions? It’s like Facebook and Twitter, if you are smart you can use it to your advantage, but if you only give some fleeting consideration, you’ll get insignificant results. Basically, it’s like anything in life, it’s what YOU make it! You get out, what you put it!
Everything new gets a Facebook group, right? Despite Empire Avenue not being that new, but having become super popular just recently and it does of course have a Facebook group.
I was invited by my good friend Dillon Rhodes to join the Empire Avenue Facebook group #SocialEmpire and the people in the group are a great crowd as most Social Media groups seem to be. Welcoming to enthusiastic ’newbies’ and very into Social Media, as you would expect!
firstname.lastname@example.org The group is managed by Shannon Morgan.
Check out Empire Avenue for yourself and if you like it ask to join the #SocialEmpire Facebook group! They’re a great crowd and know all the inner workings of Empire Avenue. if you need advice that’s where to get it!
