Incentivized networking is a tricky business. Part of the beautiful complexity in Empire Avenue’s unique social ecosystem is that for a user to progress in a meaningful way they must build wealth. There are any number of ways to accumulate eavs on Empire Avenue. Depending on your disposition you might focus on promoting yourself and the sale of your own shares, or invest in top earners building your daily dividends and growing your investments in others. Maybe you will buy eavs directly from the website or organize reciprocal purchasing schemes and promotions, navigate the ebbs and flows of the new arrivals lists or more likely a tailored combination including some or all of the above. Ultimately we each decide what investment strategy suits us and our goals best whether those goals are social, professional or otherwise.
As each share is purchased on the Ave we also gamble our eavs on an opportunity. It’s up to each of us to find the value or not in those opportunities, be it within the framework of the game or beyond. These opportunities can take many forms. Sometimes they foster new connections as friendships or advocates, the discovery of meaningful content, monetary returns on one’s investment or even simply provide the foundation for future dialogue but when no connection is made and no value is found in the investment the question becomes: “Should i sell?”
Each person or organization will set their own guidelines by which they engage on Empire Avenue but to grow within the game one thing remains constant: Making more connections means accumulating and spreading wealth. You can not buy more shares if you do not have more eavs, and so at times each user will ask themselves by what standards our portfolios are governed. If, by these standards, some investments are found wanting then we must decide whether we will shed them to invest in those who can help us form new connections and expand our social empires.
As you accumulate and reinvest your wealth you also empower others to do the same, building meaningful connections along the way.
Empire Avenue demands that we balance our social interaction with that of the gaming elements so that we can make the most of the experience. Sometimes that means buying and holding shares indefinitely, while other times it means shedding shares in those with whom you’ve not connected, or who are not engaging in the game any longer.
It’s been said that ‘Buy is the new Like’, but sell does not have to mean dislike. Rather, treat each investment as if you have planted a mystery seedling. Some might grow into great trees providing bountiful crops year after year while others you will harvest for their seeds — seeds to be replanted, eavs to be reinvested.
