I’m happy to announce something that has been a long time in the making. Empire Avenue is about to launch our Empire Avenue Mentors Program. We realize that Empire Avenue offers incredible opportunities to enrich the world through the ability to access the knowledge and networks that our Community has to offer. For many, getting started on Empire Avenue can be a daunting prospect, and while we can continue to streamline and simplify, ultimately we also realize that what most people need is a guiding hand.
Enter the Mentors.
The Empire Avenue Mentors program will be a specialized group of individuals who will help new (and old) members through Empire Avenue. These Mentors will help each account holder realize the value they seek from their experiences on Empire Avenue, depending on their goals within Social Media and the online world.
Our initial Mentors Program will be created and managed by Empire Avenue. We will be choosing a very small select group of Mentors (from the Community) to build the program and technology around. While we have an idea on how the program is structured and how the compensation for Mentors will work, we will be working very closely with this initial group of people to ensure that this program is a success. Over the next few weeks you will see changes to the service in preparation or rollout for helping people identify and choose Mentors.
If you are interested in being part of the Mentors Program, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We have such amazing people to choose from in the community that it’s been hard for us to chat with everyone and if we haven’t contacted you yet, it might simply be that we’re just slow! We’re also trying to choose a multi-lingual and global presence among the Mentors. So do you have an interest? Simply email us at the above e-mail and we’ll send you more details on how to apply.
This Mentors Program is the first movement towards creating programs and features for individuals to use their knowledge and networks to create real-world value for themselves. While this particular Mentors program is centered around Empire Avenue, our future really is about taking this social media platform we have created and allowing you to realize value from your networks, your reputation and your knowledge.
