Promote Your Eaves Missions

You can now Promote Eaves Missions as well as Vees Missions. Previously you could only promote Vees Missions. A promoted Mission is displayed at the top of the Missions page always. Promoting a Mission is like running a Google Ad into the Search Results: More Views, more Completions, better Mission Results!

Promoted Missions work by buying „Promoted Mission slots” which are available in the Empire Avenue Shop. A single use of promoting a Mission is $5 and a pack of 5 Promoted Missions is $20. Please note that a Mission is „Promoted” for 12 hours or until the Mission runs out (which ever comes first). You can only Promote A/B graded Missions. Promoted Missions may be downgraded manually and they will stop being Promoted at that point, so please make sure you read the Missions rules and guidelines!

When you are creating Promoted Missions you can choose the…

What’s the difference between “Incredible new gadget arrives from the future” and “Visit My Web Site”?

Chances are very good you were immediately drawn to the first title and you probably wanted to explore the content. The second title probably aroused curiosity, some dread and potentially left you wanting… That’s the power of a good title, headline… while we are all taught never to judge a book by its cover, a really good title and headline can make all the difference in the world!

Recently we implemented “Mission Grading” for those creating Empire Avenue Missions. From A-F we use a mixture of automatic algorithmic analysis of your Mission and manual grading to indicate the marketing potential of your Mission. The Mission grading isn’t there to punish you, but rather to show you what we have seen as great marketing tactics.

Driving Mr. Dups

Martie 5, 2014

Empirical Leanings

For the first time in six years I am driving into work on a daily basis. My policy has always been to live near work so that I would not have to deal with commuter traffic, but with my decision to move to downtown Edmonton I am no longer a stone’s throw away from the office. This means that every morning I shove myself into the daily streams of motor-vehicular run-off.

And this means dealing with other drivers on a regular basis.

One of the great failings of the Internet has been the ability for people to be annoying anonymously. Hardly anyone would be mean to people if you had to go have a chat with that person face-to-face. The same holds true for drivers. We’re cocooned in our little four doors, strapped to our seats and touching the road vicariously through the steering wheel, gears and the pedals. In…
