Why Doesn’t Empire Avenue Want My Money?
I decided yesterday that I was going to throw myself into marketing with Empire Avenue fully. Full steam ahead! I was going to burn through my saved eaves as quickly as possible, and if necessary I would start paying REAL money to buy more. Imagine my joy when I saw the EA was offering a sale on Eaves today! More then half off!!!
Then imagine my confusion as my Missions stood barely touched throughout the day…
I posted numerous Missions and was trying my best to burn through my Eaves, but to no avail… I’ve probably been able to offload less then 30 Rewards for all of today.
Because I was bored I decided to go over to the “Current Mission” tab and help my fellow users on EA complete some Missions. After I re-tweeted 3-4 Missions I suddenly was given a pop up message by Empire Avenue that I was completing Missions too quickly and that I was not going to be able to complete anymore Missions until I had a “cool off” period. Ironically they then said I should spend some of the eaves I had earned… but I couldn’t spend them because my Missions were being left untouched…
After a few minutes I tried to compete some Missions again and got this message:
Remember how you did a lot of Missions really quickly, well
we think you need a little bit more time before you can complete some more,
maybe go spend some of those hard earned Eaves
So I’m left at bit of an odd space. I fully believe in Empire Avenue, and their results have been so terrific I am willing to pay them money. BUT they seem to be limiting their system to the point where even if I bought more Eaves I would not be able to use them… I’m not sure exactly what their business plan is, but I think I’m missing something.
I’m more then happy to keep using Empire Avenue for free. The results are still amazing by any set of standards. I was hoping to have a need to pay them some money today as a way of saying, “thanks”, but as a business person I’m more then keep my cash if the other side doesn’t want it.
